Non-colourfast Q&As

 

How do I wash non-colourfast items?

  • Non-colourfast items should be washed separately in cold water and rinsed immediately without soaking
  • Dry cleaning is safer for garments that lose a lot of colour, but check the care label first

What should I do if dye runs into other clothes?

  • If a non-colourfast item accidentally slips into your wash, a reversal product, such as Dylon® Run Away Dye Remover, could come to the rescue (available in most supermarkets and chemists)
  • If an article washed in your machine has released a lot of dye, put your machine on an empty wash cycle before doing the next load. This will stop the loose dye running into next wash.
