Top Tips to Keep Your Clothing Colors Fresh

Sort your laundry by color:

This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to separate your clothes according to color before washing them. Sorting your laundry by color keeps darker colors from bleeding onto lighter ones, which can result in dull, faded colors, and help you keep your clothing colors fresh.

Turn clothes inside out:

Turning your clothes inside out before washing them is a simple but effective way to protect the outer layer of your clothes from rubbing against other items in the wash. This can prevent color fading, especially for dark-colored clothes.

Wash in cold water:

Hot water can be harsh on clothes and may contribute to color fading. Washing your clothes in cold water is a gentler option that can help preserve the colors of your clothes, especially for bright or dark colors. It’s also better for the environment!

P.S. 2ULaundry always washes in cold water to keep your clothing colors fresh!

Use a gentle detergent:

Some detergents contain harsh chemicals that can damage the fibers of your clothes and cause colors to fade. Opt for a gentle detergent that’s specifically designed to preserve colors, and avoid using too much of it.

Air dry your clothes:

Excessive heat can damage clothes and make colors fade faster. Consider air drying your clothes instead of using a dryer, especially for delicate or bright-colored clothing items.

P.S. 2ULaundry always tumble dries on medium heat and uses sensors instead of timers to protect your clothes from unnecessary heat. We also offer a hang-dry bag to preserve your delicates!

Skip the fabric softener:

While fabric softener might make your clothes feel softer, the chemicals in it may damage the fibers of your clothes and cause fading. Try using a natural fabric softener alternative like vinegar or dryer balls instead.

And there you have six tips from 2ULaundry to help keep your clothes bright and beautiful. Remember, proper care is the key to maintaining the quality and longevity of your clothes, so put these tips into practice and enjoy your colorful and vibrant wardrobe for even longer. Happy washing!
