Running colors in the wash is always frustrating, but I have a quick tip to stop running colors once and for all.

If you're not separating your clothes before you wash them, then you really need to start. First you're gonna wanna separate your wash into colors and whites.

Doing your laundry is much easier than people think, and by taking these extra steps you'll be much happier with your laundry.
