Cooktop Cove: Why you want to add pepper to your laundry
Nothing is worse than taking your clothes out of the dryer and noticing that your favorite red dress has faded to a shade of pink you would have never chosen yourself. While doing laundry is never fun, moments like this make it unbearable.
While there's a variety of detergents that work to protect the brightest of colors, the costs can add up. Forget about spending your money on special detergents. Try this hack instead with an unexpected spice straight from your kitchen.
1. Laundry detergent
2. Ground black pepper
3. Dirty, colored clothes
1. Gather your materials
Gather a load of dirty, colored clothes, laundry detergent and a couple teaspoons of black pepper.
Load your washer as you normally would with your favorite laundry detergent. Then, throw in a couple teaspoons of ground black pepper. Start your washer.
Once the cycle is over, load up your dryer. Once the clothes are dry, remove and fold your bright, clean laundry.
1. Make sure you set the water temperature on your machine to cold.
2. Don't worry about smelling like pepper or having residue in your clothing. All the pepper will wash away with the rinse cycle.
