How do I prevent clothing and other laundry from fading when washed?

Preventing Laundry from Fading

I usually wash in cold water with a gentle detergent, clothes turned inside out and vinegar instead of fabric softener. Most of these and more tips are also here: http://housekeeping.about.com/od/laundry/tp/8colorfadetips.htm

I have heard to line dry instead of putting in the dryer if possible. But I wouldn't leave out in high sun as sun can also bleach out clothes some. Cheer and Woolite also sell laundry detergent types made for keeping color bright or darks dark. (02/07/2010)

If you are using a laundry soap with bleach, this may cause fading as well. (02/09/2010)

I have switched to Woolite and although it is more expensive than other brands, my clothes are brighter, softer and look like new. I also use vinegar as a rinse. My water is hard and believe me, I am excited about the results. (02/10/2010)
