Soapnut Laundry Hack Number 4: Keeping Colours and Whites Bright
To make sure your washing stays bright and colours stay vibrant, use a colour catcher in your wash. Just add one sheet into the drum with your clothes and it will collect any stray dirt or colour floating around. No more dingy washing!
Whether you use one of the magical sheets in every wash or just with your favourite garments, they are an absolute must have for the keeping your colours and whites brighter for longer. By popping a Colour & Dirt Collector sheet in your wash you don’t have to worry, your lovely flowery dress or your red and white rugby shirt will come out the same as it went in, along with all the other clothes in the wash.
We also use soda crystals or bicarbonate of soda in the wash, this may not suitable for all fabrics. We add white vinegar into the conditioner drawer which helps create an oxygenated cleaner when it mixes with the soda or bicarb. It is also a great softener! Alternatively you can just use your favourite laundry bleach, it will not impact the efficacy of the soapnuts.
