Lint Problem

Posted by cricketm (My Page) on

I would like some tips on preventing lint on dark clothes, for instance,navy sweats, dark colors. Why am I getting lint on these dark clothes. I wash colors separately. Maybe I should stop Fabric Softeners... any advice would be appreciated.

RE: Lint Problem

Rather than separating into lights and darks,I separate into linty (towels, anything fleecy,etc) and non-linty-(jeans, pants,etc.) I do use dryer sheets in the dryer. Never used in-the-wash -fabric softeners.

RE: Lint Problem

Turn them inside out before washing.
