Before beginning your wash, it is important to determine whether or not your clothes are colour-fast, otherwise you may end up with a messy wash with dyes running into other clothes.

We recommend that you check the Care symbols on clothing labels and do the colour-fastness test.


Colour-fastness test:

For soaking or washing:  Dampen a small area of hem or inside seam with water, then iron a piece of white fabric or kitchen paper on to it. If any colour blots off, the garment is not colourfast.
