  • we've used Gain in the past. now using All Free & Clear. gunna go back to Gain. I wash our darks and jeans in Cold water so the colors don't bleed. Jeans & shirts with writing or artwork on them i turn inside out to help keep the color on the jeans & writing on the shirts ;)

  • I make my own detergent, always wash in cold (except household rags) and line dry almost everything. The heat from a dryer will fade your clothes' colors over time.
