How do you keep your black clothes so black?

Do you:

1) Have a special way of washing them?

2) Not bother washing them?

3) Continually buy new black clothes?

4) something else?

just interested. My black clothes always fade to grey.

PS I'm not a goth.

love future

i do believe you can buy a washing powder or something which is made especially for goths. Or not. For dark clothes in fact. Think it was from persil but i'm not sure. but yeah.

I could put something in here about goths and blackness and general gloomy angst keeping everything black. But nyah.

I've tried the persil washing powder using a really low temperature but still no luck.

There must be some sort of secret.

I really want to know.

Anyone have any clothes washing tips?

Take the tops off of 2 permanent marker pens and do you load as normal. The water will be pretty dark looking afterwards but when they're dried you'll see the difference.

Wash the clothes inside out.... DUH!

You've got it in one. Secondly, you can buy dye from John Lewis' that you just shove into the washing machine with salt.

Purple however is a different matter altogether.....

The above does not amount to an admission of goth-status.

that requires a strap-on, a pair of pliers, a car battery, some jump leads, nipple rings and a fuck load of incense.

if your ironing your clothes, turn them inside out.

but seriously, the best solution....

get your mum to wash them.

that mothers touch is the key to keeping that goth chic look.

what if your mum shrinks your stuff in the wash though? eh?

in the 23 years of my life my mother has never shrunk any of my clothing.

also....if she did happen to shrink it....you can bet your ass it'd still be black!
