Adding some vinegar into warm water to wash clothes help to minimize the color fading. Especially clothes made from cotton, dark color such as red, black, purple are easily faded so you need to be more careful when cleaning. This is also a way to make your old uniforms brighter.
Turn clothes inside out
Don’t forget to turn your clothes inside out, lock button before washing. It will help protect the clothes and prevent fading
Hang in the right way
Don’t forget to turn clothing inside out when you hang clothes outside to dry. While the sun is an excellent and efficient drying tool, it will zap the color right out of your clothing. You should hang clothes in the shade for a while after washing and then hang outside for 1-2 hours to dry.
