What Detergent to Use on Dark Clothes?

Keen to learn what other hacks there are for washing dark clothes? Here are our top tips for making sure your darks stay that way.

Tip 1 – Your Product Choice is Key

Choosing a dark laundry detergent that has been formulated to specifically wash dark colours is your first step in keeping darks dark.

Tip 2 – Separation Is a Good Thing

When it comes to washing – and only washing – separation is good. Always separate your dark colours from other colours and your whites. You can also go one step further by separating your harder wearing dark fabrics from your more delicate fabrics too.

Tip 3 – Cold is King

Washing dark colours on a cold wash cycle will ensure that your dark clothes don't fade. Be sure to also only dry your dark clothing in natural light, and try to never tumble dry them to avoid fading. For more cleaning tips and tricks, visit Cleanipedia today.
