Dark Colors

What exactly are dark colors?

Would you consider purple/red/blue to be dark colors? I know black is.

My detergent says use it for dark colors but I don't know what is considered 'dark'.

Laundry should be separated into piles of white, bright, and dark colors.

White, of course, is easy to recognize. :-)

Bright colors are the bright yellows, oranges, reds, bright blues, bright greens, even bright purple.

IF they are washed in cold water and the clothes are turned inside out, it is okay to wash light blues, yellows, greens, purple (which we call lavender) with bright colors. We call light brown tan.

It is best to turn them right side out before putting them in the dryer.

There is quite a difference between light and bright green, and dark green. Dark green is much closer to black than the light and bright green colors.

Ditto for dark (navy) blue, dark purple, dark brown, etc. These colors can and should be washed with black colors.

IF the dark-colored clothes are turned inside out, it's okay to wash red clothes with them -- IF the red clothes are not new, have been washed before.

I do wash bright red and orange clothes separately (in same wash, inside out). Washing them with dark clothes can dull their color.

In all cases, it's a good idea to use a color-preserving detergent.

Washing brights and dark colors in cold water will help to preserve their colors.

Some good detergents are Cheer with brighteners (for bright clothes), Cold Water Tide, Tide Total Care, and Woolite for Darks for dark clothes.

Also -- using white vinegar (other vinegars will stain laundry) in the final rinse, or even in the dark clothes wash, will help to 'set' (preserve) the colors and keep them from transferring. Your clothes will last longer and look better.

1 cup white vinegar in a full agitator washer's Fabric Softener dispenser is about right. 1/2 cup white vinegar in an HE washer's FS dispenser is enough. You can add some FS if you want the scent.

If you add vinegar to the wash when you wash dark clothes, 1/2 cup should be enough.

Hope this helps!
