Putting Color Back Into Black Garments

Can someone tell me how to put color back into faded black garments. Will appreciate any tips. I have read that putting them in a dryer will fade black color.

RIT dye works fab. Don't forget to turn your black clothes inside out when washing as well! (01/12/2005)

I'd suggest washing on delicate cycles, turning the items inside out, using "black" friendly detergents (color-safe or Fewa Black Magic), and drying on low heat or hanging. I have numerous pairs of black jeans and black shirts/jackets that I've managed to keep from graying just being a little careful when washing. I've redyed several items, but the dyes wash out much faster than the mfg's original and the hot water requirement makes some items shrink too much. (01/13/2005)

Have you tried to rinse your clothes in white vinegar?
I've tried it and it does help. (01/13/2005)

Soak items in strong black coffee. That should bring back the black color. (01/21/2005)

Try using soya sauce and water. My mother used to do that do my father's black socks. Put the black right back in them!
