Did you ever put the black pepper in the washing machine?
Closed

Nothing is worse than taking your clothes out of the dryer and noticing that your favorite red dress has faded to a shade of pink you would have never chosen yourself. While doing laundry is never fun, moments like this make it unbearable.

While there's a variety of detergents that work to protect the brightest of colors, the costs can add up. Forget about spending your money on special detergents. Try this hack instead with an unexpected spice straight from your kitchen.


Everything what do you need is:

1. Laundry detergent
2. Ground black pepper
3. Dirty, colored clothes

Directions

1. Gather your materials
Gather a load of dirty, colored clothes, laundry detergent and a couple teaspoons of black pepper.

2. Wash
Load your washer as you normally would with your favorite laundry detergent. Then, throw in a couple teaspoons of ground black pepper. Start your washer.

3. Remove
Once the cycle is over, load up your dryer. Once the clothes are dry, remove and fold your bright, clean laundry.

Other useful tips:

1. Make sure you set the water temperature on your machine to cold.
2. Don't worry about smelling like pepper or having residue in your clothing. All the pepper will wash away with the rinse cycle.

To be honest I never tried this but I was looking for something different what helps protect clothes and found this. I will try it and let you know does it work.

What do you think?

Thank you.

What’s worse than putting red dress in wash and it coming out pink, is when that red sock gets accidentally mixed in with your whites and everything comes our pink....
