Hello everyone, I have recently seen that some colleagues always fade nylon clothes in washing, and nylon, especially light-colored ones, are difficult to restore. In order to avoid washing accidents, today I will explain to you how to handle and prevent nylon clothes.
Polyamide, also known as “nylon”, looks similar to polyester, but is not as smooth as polyester. The fabric has high strength, good wear resistance and good resilience, but it has poor light resistance and is prone to static electricity. The fading of nylon clothes is related to the fabric, dye and dyeing process of the clothing itself. Pay attention to the following points to alleviate the fading phenomenon:
1. Wash in normal temperature or cold water, turn over and clean. 2. Avoid vigorous rubbing during the washing process, because the color fastness of nylon is usually level 3, which is lower than that of polyester, cotton and silk. Try not to use alkaline detergents (such as washing powder, soap), as alkaline detergents will Causes certain dyes to hydrolyze, such as strong washing powder, heated washing, etc., to come off the clothes. Neutral detergent available. 3. Wash as you go, shorten the soaking time and have the characteristics of fur-matching color matching. Do not use local treatment with strong alkali and strong acid, including washing. 4. Avoid exposure to the sun. Try not to store washed clothes in stores for a long time to prevent fading and disputes. In addition, faded clothing should be washed separately to avoid staining other clothing.
5. Nylon has better dyeability than polyester, so it is easy to match colors, and once the colors are matched, it is more difficult to remove. Many down jackets must be washed carefully if they are made of nylon. In theory, fading can be dyed and restored, but light colors often have color differences.
What laundry people need is to know more washing plans and safe washing, instead of treating them after washing. Only by having an in-depth understanding of the color fastness, acid and alkali resistance of various fabrics, and understanding of various washing consumables can you wash them safely. If you are not sure, you can test it on an inconspicuous part of the clothes before processing.
