Bobbling And Fading Of Dyed Garments
"Bobbles" on the surface of cotton fabric, caused by broken fibres which may also give the appearance of fading.
"Bobbling" can be removed by brushing, cutting or picking "bobbles" from the fabric. There is no treatment for fading once it has happened, although fabrics can be redyed.
Cause & Prevention
When cotton or cotton rich garments are washed and worn repeatedly the friction causes fibres to break leaving bobbles on the surface.
The Ariel range of washing products includes special fabric care technology that helps keep your clothes looking like new for longer. For best results garments should be washed in Ariel from new.
Fading of fabrics happens mainly with cotton. Repeated washing and wearing can cause the loss of some dye intensity. This effect occurs less with better quality dyed fabrics and by choosing the correct detergent.
Use Ariel Color or an alternative coloured detergent to reduce fading and keep your clothes looking newer for longer.
