Tip 1: Follow Directions

The care label will let you know the best way to wash each garment: water temperature, cycle speed (or hand-wash), and more. Learn more about reading a manufacturer’s care label

Tip 2: Turn Clothes Inside Out

Let agitation take its toll on the insides of your garments, and help preserve the colors you fell in love with.

Tip 3: Wash Clothes in Cold Water

Even if the care label calls for warm or hot water, cold water is your best choice for helping protect a garment’s color. Warm water makes fibers more prone to releasing dye to the wash water.

Tip 4: Use the Gentle Cycle

Usually used for delicate items, the gentle cycle agitates and spins, well, gently. Using the gentle cycle means you significantly reduce abrasion to your garments.

Tip 5: Use a Fabric Conditioner

Downy® fabric conditioner lubricates the fibers in your clothes. This reduces abrasion and, as a result, reduces dye loss. Downy also helps prevent pilling, which helps your garments hold on to their original colors and keep their fresh appearance—for a brighter-looking you.
