Five Quick Tips to Help Prevent Clothes from Fading
No one likes it when colors fade, fabric wears out, and hems come undone. To keep your clothes looking as good as new, follow these tips to preserve washable and dry clean only garments. Your clothes will last longer with regular cleaning and care.
Tip 1: Follow Directions
The care label will let you know the best way to wash each garment: water temperature, cycle speed (or hand-wash), and more.
Tip 2: Turn Clothes Inside Out
Let agitation take its toll on the insides of your garments, and help preserve the colours you fell in love with.
Tip 3: Wash Clothes in Cold Water
Even if the care label calls for warm or hot water, cold water is your best choice for helping protect a garment’s colour. Warm water makes fibres more prone to releasing dye to the wash water.
Tip 4: Use the Gentle Cycle
Usually used for delicate items, the Gentle Cycle agitates and spins much more gently than the Normal Cycle. Using the Gentle Cycle means you can significantly help reduce abrasion to your garments.
Tip 5: Use a Fabric Conditioner
Lenor Fabric Conditioner lubricates the fibres in your clothes. This reduces abrasion and, as a result, reduces dye loss. Lenor also helps prevent fading, which helps your garments hold on to their original colours and keep their fresh appearance—for a brighter-looking you.
Whether you are a laundry newbie or a laundry pro, keep these tips in mind.
