I recently started using Downy Fabric Conditioner to my laundry routine! I have noticed that it has really improved my clothes! If you are looking for ways on how to keep your clothes and your kids clothes from fading and lasting longer this is a great thing to add to your laundry routine!
When it comes to saving money, we often save my oldest daughters clothes for our youngest daughter. Although they sometimes get stained and faded we decided to give Downy Fabric Conditioner a try!
I am a Keep-it-simple type of person and usually avoid products that I don’t feel like I need. I barely use bleach or other items in my wash because I grew up having sensitive skin. This time around I want our clothes to last longer so that I am not having to get rid of clothes that have seen their final days.
When I had the opportunity to try Down Fabric Conditioner, I wondered if I could REALLY tell a difference. What I found out was that there was some improvement on our clothes once they exited the dryer!
As a matter of fact my clothes in the dryer really felt softer. I had to triple check that they weren’t still wet. Plus, I am so sensitive to smells and I LOVE when things smell good and clean! My clothes smelled so much better!
There was less lint in the lint tray! That tells me that my threads stayed more in tact to their actual clothes! Usually a load with mostly towns fills my lint tray! My towels felt extra fluffy coming out of the wash!
Plus, by shopping at Walmart AND taking care of our clothes this saves our frugal family some money!
How to Keep Your Clothes From Fading Tips
- Use Downy Fabric Conditioner. This product helps strengthen, condition, and lubricate the fibers of the clothes you have going through the wash.
- Turn your clothes inside out when washing them. There is less rubbing against the screen printing during a crazy wash. Clothes pull and stretch while circling the wash!
- Hang dry the pieces of clothes that you really want to last longer. Sometimes I lay my clothes flat to dry.
- Read the tags. This seems like something simple. Always read the tags on the washing instructions before purchasing clothes. If you KNOW you are never going to gentle wash on cold with similar colors and then tumble low dry…then DON’T buy it. I can’t begin to tell you how many of my clothes shrunk growing up because they all went through the same cycle.
As a mom, there is something bitter sweet to watching my kids get older. At least with my oldest I know those favorite outfits that are filled with memories will be worn again by my youngest.
Be sure to purchase this product if you are like me and trying to keep your clothes and kids clothes lasting a long time!

I’ve never thought that I should turn my clothes inside out when washing them. In fact, I turn them all outside in and didn’t realize I’ve been doing it all wrong. Thank you for your tips, they are going to come in handy.

I’ve seen the suggestion to turn things inside out but never really thought about why. Truth be told I generally ignore it, but I don’t have many printed things to worry about.
Really good tips! I admit most of the clothes get washed inside out because of my laziness to fix them. Glad to see that helped me out actually!

Kids outgrow clothing so fast that it is really important to keep pieces looking as nice as possible, for as long as possible, especially if you plan on using them again as hand me downs. I love that Downy can benefit our laundry while making it smell amazing too!
