Black and white clothes can be tricky items in the washing machine. The good experts at Consumer Reports have some tried and tested tips on how your black clothes won’t fade and your whites won’t fade.
Pat Slaven, a textile engineer at Consumer Reports, provides some simple guidelines that anyone can follow.
