Thanks in large part to my cloth diapering addiction my laundry day has changed dramatically over the last 6 months. We use a more natural laundry soap (Charlies soap) but I also know it is easy to make your own mix... and we also use vinegar in the rinse cycle for stains and softer. While we have had a few sunny days and a clothesline is on my to-do list for this summer... we are still using the dryer some but we have purchased 4 dryer balls (you can also use tennis balls I hear) which are fist sized plastic spiky balls that bounce your cloths around in the dryer keeping them static free, dry faster, and stay softer while avoiding dryer sheets... plus they are a one time investment, unlike the dryer sheets which you just keep buying up. We tend to use cold water anywhere we can but what I want are tips on keeping my dark colors (black especially) dark...Any tips?
