Does Baking Soda Fade Colours?

Baking soda is popular due to its ability to tackle tougher stains regardless if it’s a sofa or a garment. With its many benefits to your laundry routine, it’s no surprise that it is a great alternative to fabric softener. But does baking soda fade colours?

While baking soda can undeniably be a benefit to your laundry due to its natural antiseptic properties, you should still use it with caution due to its high pH level that can fade colours on clothes.

Delicate fabrics such as wool, cashmere and silk are sensitive to the pH level so using too much baking soda can cause colours to fade and in turn, makes removing stubborn stains like coffee more difficult.

In addition, over-using baking soda can cause fabrics like wool and fabrics to go coarse. To keep it safe, use white vinegar to prevent colours from fading and fabrics from getting coarse.

We recommend using baking soda to a minimum when it comes to treating stains on fabrics. Next time your delicate fabrics are stained, mix baking soda with water to treat the stains.

Baking soda is a great product and is generally safe to use in the laundry. When used in moderation and with care, it will not cause colours to fade but always be cautious when using it on delicate fabrics.
