One of the most common laundry problems that a person can face is color bleed. This most commonly happens when a red sock or other piece of clothing is left in with the rest of the wash. When that red-colored cloth gets wet, it has a tendency to transfer (or bleed) its color onto the rest of the clothes in the wash.
With dark-colored clothes this is probably not that noticeable. However, the problem actually comes when the clothing that has gotten stained is either white or lightly colored. Instead of throwing away the clothes, or only saving those clothes for the days when you have really dirty chores, take a little extra time to properly clean those clothes. Here's how.
Just remember that bleed stains don't have to be the end of your clothes. By simply taking a little extra time and effort you will be able to save your favorite shirt. (Now, whether your significant other thinks that this is a good thing or not is another matter.)
