I have been doing this for years to keep my brights from fading quickly and from running. One of my high school teachers gave me this tip seventeen years ago and I still use it to this very day.
Are you ready for this super easy laundry tip?
- Add a 1/2 cup to 1 cup of white vinegar to your next load of brights. It will keep the colors from running as well as fading. This is especially helpful with reds. I do this any time I purchase a new top.
- Vinegar is also a natural fabric softer and clothing deodorizer. I use it in the rinse cycle for Matthew’s clothes since he has severe eczema.
- I recently read that adding 1/4 of a cup to 1/2 a cup of salt to your laundry will keep your colors from running and fading as well, although I have never tried it.
