colorfastness

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

Before washing a new garment for the first time, it's a good idea to test it for colorfastness. Here are the steps you can follow:

1. Dampen a small, inconspicuous area of the fabric. You can use a clean white cloth or a cotton swab.

2. Gently blot the dampened area with the cloth or cotton swab.

3. Check the cloth or swab for any color transfer. If you notice any color bleeding onto the cloth, it's an indication that the garment may not be colorfast.

If there is no color transfer, it should be safe to wash the garment. However, if you notice any color bleeding, it's advisable to wash the garment separately or hand wash it to prevent the colors from bleeding onto other clothes.
