Protect Your Clothes from Fading

• You can protect your skin with sun blockers, your eyes with UV sunglasses, and your hair with a cap, but aside from walking the streets with a parasol, there is no such protection from the sun for your clothes.

• The same sun that lightens your hair color, will also lighten the color in your clothes. As would be expected, the color loss will be more apparent in dark color garments.

• Shirts are most susceptible, with prime areas being the shoulder area, the back, and if you tuck your shirt in, above the waistline.

• Perspiration, in combination with the sun will accelerate the process.

• Prompt laundering or professional cleaning after each wearing is strongly recommended.
