Fading Clothes


DD1 has a royal blue tracksuit that she wears once a week for PE in school . She's only had it since the end of September and already the top has really faded in colour compared to the pants . Going to have to get a new one because it's annoying me lol

I always wash them together and inside out with no other clothes on a quick , cool cycle with a tiny bit of fabric softener and laundry gel .

How do you all keep your clothes from fading ?

Is it store own PE kit (ASDA, Tesco etc)?

I find Sainburys stuff lasts longer but overall my fading problems I believe is because I always tumble rather than air/radiator drying.

It's from a shop that specialises in uniforms etc . Unfortunately it cannot be bought at a supermarket . More annoyed cause the trousers are ok and the jacket looks lighter wouldn't mind wasn't cheap!

Think I am just going to have to sucker this one up for a few weeks lol

Thanks Wobbles !

Could you not get a washing machine dye to bring the colour back to life? x
