Are your go-to black abayas and thobs slowly becoming your go-to gray clothes? Just like brights can dull and whites can lose their luster, darks can also fade over time.
Fortunately, there are ways to keep dark colors intact. Here are some laundry hacks so those favorite abayas and thobs or that little black evening dress won’t fade away.
The trouble with washing dark fabrics
The more you wash, the more your dark jeans will fade. That's why you should try the shortest cycle so your clothes spend less time in the washer. And be sure to turn clothes inside out.
Cold and gentle for the best wash
Wash in cold water on the gentlest cycle, because heat can cause fuzz and pilling, which can reduce color clarity.
Use the right detergent and conditioner.
Use Tide Abaya and Downy Valley Dew Fabric Softener to protect your abayas and your dark clothes.
