Quick Tip: Pre-wash

Don’t you just hate it when you wash your new clothes or hijabs and the color transfers to your other items in the washer too?

Here’s a quick tip. Although it can be a pain to do, it sure helps to save the other items from being destroyed beyond repair!

After purchasing new items, always test a portion of the fabric under running water and wring it to see if the color runs/bleeds. This is common for darker colored fabrics like black, blue, red etc.

If you’re still not sure or are being cautious (no harm in that!), soak the whole item in a container filled with water. If the color does run/bleed, soak and wring the fabric several times until the water is clear.

After which, item is save for machine wash with other colors.

That should do the trick!
