Cleaning fanatics go to war over whether this black-and-white jumper should be washed with darks or lights – The Sun

BLACK and white clothing might be effortlessly stylish, but when laundry day rolls around, many of us are left scratching our heads.

A puzzled cleaning fan took to Facebook to ask others how to wash her new black and white jumper – but she soon found her post at the centre of a heated debate.

Writing on the Facebook group Mrs Hinch Made Me Do It, she asked: "How would I wash this? Black wash or white wash?"

As it turns out, things aren't as back and white as the woman initially thought.

Her post ignited a huge debate among fellow cleaning fanatics, who simply can't agree on how the black and white jumper should  be washed.

One camp claims that the best way to wash the jumper is to throw it in with light or white items.

A woman pointed out, "They would never put a colour with a white top if it would run."

But it wasn't long before  someone else suggested that she wash it with dark colours.

"I'd say darks or your whites will end up grey," one commented.

Others were adamant that she should wash the jumper on its own in order to lower the risk of the dark dye running into other light items.

"Wash on its own, but I have had one and the white still turned grey," one woman said.

Some people recommended washing the item on a cool wash with a colour catcher in order to keep the black section from running, while one woman joked she would add a 'glass of gin for nerves.'

But the most cautious cleaning fans took things one step further, recommending that she should wash the jumper by hand.

"Hand wash with a handful of salt in water just in case," one woman wrote. "Salt will stop any dark smudges on white."

If you still haven't got a clue how to wash a black and white jumper, you're not the only one.

One woman commented: "See things like this I usually wear once then get pi#%ed of that it’s gone mouldy at the bottom of the washing basket."
