When you’re washing red clothes, try washing them alone or with other red clothes for the first 1 to 4 washes. This will prevent them from staining your other items. If you’re unsure whether your red clothing can still bleed in the wash, test it by spraying a small amount of water on a section of the fabric and blotting it with a paper towel. If the paper towel is stained, continue to wash the item alone. To help preserve the color of your red clothes, add 1 tablespoon (15 grams) of salt to the washer each time you wash them. Washing your clothes in cold water will also help keep them from fading or bleeding. To keep your red clothes vibrant and prevent fading, hang them to dry.
