The vibrant colors and unique patterns of creations from Sunlight Splatter Dyes LLC make each piece of clothing a statement. However, caring for tie dye clothing can be a bit tricky as the colors may fade or bleed if not handled properly. So, if you've just bought a new piece of tie dye clothing, you might be wondering how to care for it. Don't worry; we've got you covered! Here's a guide on how to care for tie dye clothing:

  1. Read the care instructions

The first thing you need to do when you get a new piece of tie dye clothing is to check the care instructions on the tag. This will give you a good idea of how to care for the clothing, including whether it's safe to wash in a machine or if it needs to be hand washed. Following the care instructions can help to prolong the life of your clothing.

  1. Wash in cold water

When it's time to wash your tie dye clothing, always use cold water. Hot water can cause the colors to bleed and fade. If you're washing by hand, use cold water and a gentle detergent. If you're washing in a machine, set it to a delicate cycle and use cold water.

  1. Use a gentle detergent

When washing your tie dye clothing, use a gentle detergent that's free from bleach or other harsh chemicals. Harsh detergents can cause the colors to fade and bleed. If you're unsure which detergent to use, look for one that's specifically designed for delicate clothing.

  1. Turn inside out

Before putting your tie dye clothing in the washing machine, turn it inside out. This will help to protect the colors and prevent them from fading or bleeding.

  1. Air dry or tumble dry on low

After washing your tie dye clothing, don't put it in the dryer on high heat. Instead, air dry it in the shade. Sunlight can cause the colors to fade, so it's best to avoid drying in direct sunlight. If you're using a dryer, set it to a low heat setting and use a gentle cycle.

  1. Store properly

When you're not wearing your tie dye clothing, store it properly to prevent the colors from fading. Keep it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. You can also hang it in a closet or fold it neatly in a drawer.

In conclusion, tie dye clothing is a fun and unique addition to your wardrobe, but it requires special care to keep the colors looking vibrant. Follow these tips to care for your tie dye clothing properly, and it will last for years to come.
