White lint on dark clothing is both obvious and detrimental to the look of your clothing. What once might have looked sharp and laundered looks messy -- with white fuzz scattered over the surface. Before you run to the dry cleaner, learn how to properly wash laundry so that your clothes never collect lint again. The basics of laundering come in handy for this situation.
Things You'll Need
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1 cup white vinegar
- Clothes dryer
- Lint brush
Place the dark clothes back in the washing machine, removing any white laundry that you might have included with the original load.
Add 1/2 cup of baking soda to the washing machine, and put the laundry setting on the wash cycle. Pour 1 cup of white vinegar into the rinse cup. Start the washing machine. If your washing machine doesn't have a rinse cup, add the vinegar to the load during the rinse cycle. Both the baking soda and the vinegar will soften the water, dislodging the lint from the clothing.
Place the newly laundered clothes in the dryer, and empty the lint filter. Turn the dryer on to begin the cycle. Any lint remaining on the clothing should come off in the dryer.
