How not to mix colours during laundry

Doing the laundry is a simple process. Doing it perfectly – without ruining the colours of your clothing and ensuring that they last for a long time – is a little more complicated. Do you dream of dazzling whites? Reds that are  as vivid and bright as when the garment was bought? Simply follow the advice on our blog and your wishes will come true, wash after wash.

Firstly, whites should always be treated separately, since they are the most likely to give you a nasty surprise when you open the machine’s door at the end of a wash. However, bear in mind that not all whites are the same: depending on the material, you will have to set a different temperature in order to preserve their whiteness and lustre. For cotton sheets, a high temperature of 60°C is perfect, while silk bed linen (for example) requires a cold wash. 

To prevent discolouring and dyeing other items in the washing machineblacks should also be washed separately. What temperature should they be washed at? As with whites, the answer varies according to the type of fabric. Your favourite wool turtleneck, for example, should never be washed at a high temperature... otherwise it will drastically shrink.

When it comes to coloured garments, in addition to the usual tips about the temperature at which you should wash one fabric rather than another (this is always indicated on the label), pay attention to how they should be separated. Below we list some colours, divided into light and dark, which can be washed together in the machine.

  • Light colours: pink, yellow, salmon, light blue, beige and lilac
  • Dark colours: blue, charcoal, brown, burgundy, red and orange
