  • Cold water and a little clorox2 in the wash. Clorox 2 will neutralize the chlorine in municipal water, so your clothes don't have so much of the usual slow bleaching they get otherwise.

  • When I was putting myself thru nursing school, I worked retail. I had a fashion designer tell me a secret and have used it ever since..........


    to keep bright colors bright and dark colors from fading, wash in cold water, gentle cycle and add 1/3 cup of salt to the water, the first time you wash the garment.

    the salt sets the colors.
