1) The magic of the use of anti-fading wipes by Marie
Mary, a faithful reader of Well Dressed advocates the use of anti-fading wipes. “The goal is not to mix all the linen of all color and see what will come out … but make sure to avoid an accident color rubs off (especially if you like we like to wear color!) ” . Thank you Marie for this trick is true that when you love the color, it is a shame to come to lose their intensity due to repeated washes.
If like me you’re a fan of color , be sure to drag a non-fading colors wipe your machine. Of course, as recalled Marie, do not mix all the colors together , form color harmonies when washing and follow the care label for washing the temperature appropriate.
It also recalls that this is a good compromise for “the art of synthetic clothing colors do not become bland or dull as white and turn gray. It really works. ” If Mary and myself as you value your clothes, take care with this trick.
Mary reminds us that ” a top or dress that has been worn a few hours at a dinner (I’m not talking about the wild night clubbing of course!), Is not” dirty “and not necessarily deserve to go to the machine. But it may have taken a smell or have a little wrinkled so to refresh, I hang on a hanger in my bathroom on the way and keep it there about 24 . Especially if I do not wet clothing, small wet steam from the shower in the morning the airs. ”
A tip tested and approved by my side. Do not wash your clothes too often , it can damage the plus it’s not good for the planet. Marie is absolutely right, put a little sweater a few hours only needs to be aired.
Have you not noticed that your clothes purchased at major retailers are much less pretty, fall less when switching step the first wash? I’m not saying that it takes more wash your clothes, but limit yourself to necessary . I will also give you a little tip, a miracle that I discovered: the spray “Fabric Fresh” brand The Laundress. It’s a spray for clothing that is perfect to refresh them when they were little worn.

Florence thank you for this tip: ” I have several types of detergents that I use depending on the machine I run: black cloth, color, delicate linen, denim ,” etc.
