To restore your faded clothes, put 1/2 cup of salt into your regular wash cycle, which will remove any detergent build-up and make your clothes look newer. Alternatively, add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to your washing machine’s fabric softener drawer, which will help break-up detergent build-up. Then, wash your clothes on a normal cycle with cool water and detergent. If you’re trying to brighten up white clothing, try adding 1/2 cup of baking soda to your washing machine. You can also add 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide to your cycle if you don’t have baking soda. For black clothes, pour 2 cups of strong coffee or tea into your washing machine during the rinse cycle.
