Clothing may undergo more wear and tear while you are laundering it than it does while you are wearing it. When fibers break due to colliding with surfaces, the raw fiber ends make the surface look dull. Over time they will also lose dye and become faded. Here are five home remedies to keep clothes from fading.

Wash them inside out

When you wash black or bold colors in a machine, it is important to turn them inside-out and then wash. Dont worry about the dirt and grime coming off, it will eventually get clean. This is the first step to prevent clothes from fading.

Salt Add a tablespoon of salt to the wash, and the chloride will help our clothing pack a colorful punch when it comes out of the dryer. Chloride found in salt actually helps to seal the color in fabrics, thus keeping it from fading. Try this out on your finished quilts to keep the colors bright, or treat your clothing.

Black pepper Spice up the colors in your laundry by shaking a few teaspoons of black pepper into each load. Dont worry about flakes of pepper dotting your clothes. The pepper will wash out during the rinse cycle.

Baking soda This handy dandy cleaner helps brighten whites colors. Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to the wash cycle and watch your vibrant colors stay that way.

Vinegar White vinegar can help to keep fabric colors from fading. If you add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle, the liquid will freshen up your laundry and help colors maintain their intensity. Prior to a first washing, you can also soak dark fabrics for 30 minutes in water mixed with 1/2 cup of vinegar and 2 teaspoons of salt to help set the dyes.
