Special Care Instructions for Dresses with Darker Colors

January 24, 2017

Here's how to keep your dresses with darker background colors looking fresh and bright!

  1. Turn it inside out before you wash it. The friction from being in the washing machine causes tiny fibers to break loose, which can give the fabric a gray tinge.
  2. Wash the dress in cold water using Woolite Darks, with a boost from Clorox 2 Darks & Denim.
  3. Put the dress in the dryer, but set it to "Damp Dry" so that it's still a little wet when it comes out.
  4. Hang it and let it dry completely. Extra hint: the solid color fabrics shrink easily in the dryer. If you pull gently to stretch it while it's still a little wet, it will relax closer to its original size. 

Ta Da!
