How to Prevent Black Clothes from Fading

Classic black blouses, skirts, pants and dresses are perfect additions to any closet. But, after a while, the black may begin to fade. So, unless you plan on shifting your color scheme to a washed-out gray, follow these steps to help keep your black wardrobe looking crisp!

Start with the initial purchase. Look for high quality black clothes that have been acid dyed or reactive dyed. Extra fine cotton and silk yarn hold color really well. When buying cotton t-shirts choose one that has lyrca in it.

Choose a detergent specifically for black clothes.

Wash your black clothes in cold water for one cycle.
