How to Keep Bright Clothes Bright

Bright clothing can fade very quickly if not washed properly. To keep your bright clothes looking bright, follow these simple steps.

1. Separate your bright clothes into two groups. Make one group light brights and the other group dark brights. Wash each pile separately.

2. Turn your bright clothes inside out before you wash them. Reversing bright clothes before washing will keep your bright clothes looking bright.

3. Wash your brights on the shortest cycle possible. Only use longer cycles for heavily soiled brights.

4. If you have new clothes that are likely to bleed when washed for the first time, make a third pile for theses clothes and wash them separately a couple times before you wash them with the other brights. If your clothes do bleed onto other clothing, don't dry them. The heat from the dryer will set the dye and make the discolorations permanent. If they bleed, wash them again separately. The color should come out as long as you don't apply heat.

5. Avoid the dryer whenever possible. Hang dry your clothes if possible. If you do dry your brights, choose the lowest temperature.

6. Don't over dry your clothes.

      Then they could say there is "an app" for just about everything. For discounted Laundry Parts and accessories visit http://www.summitparts.com/ . I was able to fix my washer for a fraction of the cost of a professional.
