It’s easy to stop that happening again – you just need a few handy hacks from Vanish for how to stop colour fading in clothes. The super-boosted formula in our Oxi Advance range not only helps brighten colours and whites, it also gets rid of stains and odours, so you won’t have to wash again to get the job done. While prevention is preferable to cure, we can also help save that favourite piece that’s seen better days by sharing our secrets on how to brighten faded coloured clothes with our Vanish Miracle Serum.

7 steps to prevent clothes fading

Heat, friction, lint transfer – once you know the reasons for fabric fading you can combat them with a few washing tricks, whether you want to know how to prevent cotton clothes from losing colour or how to keep black jeans black. Follow this step-by-step guide that explains all:

  1. Follow care label instructions. Choosing the right method from the get-go helps prevent fading.
  2. Separate clothes. Lint can transfer and dull colours, so wash black clothes, white clothes, and coloured clothes separately, with the appropriate product — Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Gel or Vanish Oxi Advance Multi Power Powder for colours, and Vanish Oxi Advance Crystal White Gel for whites.
  3. Turn inside out. This is particularly relevant when trying to stop black jeans fading, but all items benefit from outer fibre protection.
  4. Choose cooler temperatures. Hot water is a leading cause of clothes fading. You still get great results with our Oxi Advance formula at 30°C.
  5. Use a gentle cycle. Reducing agitation is a key step in preventing coloured and black clothes fading.
  6. Don’t overfill your machine. This also helps reduce friction, and the machine isn’t so tough on your garments.
  7. Air dry. We aren’t just covering how to stop black clothes fading in the wash; we’re also covering the drying process. Tumble-drying can contribute to fading, so hang dry indoors where possible. If it has to be outdoors, ensure clothes are inside-out to stop the sun fading them.
