How to prevent your beloved clothes from bleeding

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. There are some simple steps you can take to prevent clothes from bleeding dye. And guess what, all you need is some salt. Follow these steps while washing clothes and you will never have to worry about this again.

Double the amount of salt if you have a huge pile of laundry.

Step 1:

Fill a bucket of water and add a cup of table salt in it. Mix the salt and water thoroughly to let the salt dissolve completely.

Step 2:

Soak your clothes in the saltwater solution before the first wash. Let it sit for about 2-3 hours.

Step 3:

Take the clothing out of the solution and launder as usual.

Step 4:

Add 1/4th cup of salt to the washing cycle for double protection. Do this not just during the first wash but during each washing cycle thereafter.

It is best to wash dark coloured clothes separately.
