Top 8 Tips to Prevent Colors from Fading
From About Housekeeping
1. Read the Care Label
It takes a few seconds, but reading the care labels may save a lot of heartache when your clothes come out of the wash. Check for instructions that may say to wash only in cold, or with like colors. Don't forget to check for drying instructions as well. The label may indicate that the clothing needs to be dried on low, or drip dried.
2. Wash Dark Colors Together
Sorting clothes is a great opportunity to check the care label, and place your clothing in the correct pile. Anyone who has ever washed one red sock with an entire load of whites, knows the pain that can happen when colors fade away. To prevent dark colors from fading, keep like colors together.
3. Turn Clothes Inside Out
Some of the wear and tear that happens on your clothing can be prevented by turning your clothing inside out before washing and drying. Washing and drying clothing is rough on the outside of your clothing. Turning garments inside out will reduce pilling which dulls the look of the fabric. Don't forget to turn clothing inside out when you hang clothes outside to dry. While the sun is an excellent and efficient drying tool, it will zap the color right out of your clothing.
4. Don't Stuff the Washer
Stuffing the washer is tempting. It will help us save time, right? Well, actually stuffing the washer can cost us quite a bit. It makes the machine work harder and it is tougher on our clothes. Clothing can't come clean or have soap evenly deposited when it is packed into a washing machine. Similarly clothing takes a lot longer to dry when a dryer is stuffed with wet cloths. Clothes need to move freely.
5. Wash in Cold
Colors in cold. This was the unofficial motto of my home growing up. If there is one thing I learned about laundry from my mother, it is that colors get washed in cold. If you want to prevent fading from your colored clothing, wash them in cold water. Detergents have come a long way in the last several years, and most do as well in cold water as the do in hot or warm.
6. Don't Over Dry
It's easy to let our clothing over. While this is bad for all of our laundry, it is particularly bad for our bright and dark colors. Over drying will cause your colors to fade. Set a timer and don't forget about your clothes. Clothes should be slightly damp when they are pulled from the dryer.
7. Add Vinegar
Vinegar doesn't have the most pleasant smell, but adding a cup to your washing machine will not only give you a natural fabric softener, but also help prevent colors from fading. The good news? The vinegar smell goes away in the wash.
8. Use the Gentle Cycle or a Gentle Detergent
If you still want to make sure your colors last as long as possible, you can wash on your machine's gentle cycle or hand wash your special clothing. There are several detergents on the market that are formulated to prevent fading and color loss.

Yardley-Makefield Emergency Unit kicks off cancer fundraiser with unveiling of 'pink' ambulance
By John Williams email@example.com
LOWER MAKEFIELD – It's not quite a pink Cadillac like the one in the 1989 iconic Clint Eastwood movie, but it does roll on four wheels.
A Yardley-Makefield ambulance went "pink" in support of those patients and their families who are battling cancer. The Yardley-Makefield Emergency Unit (YMEU) is currently taking donations for members of the community who may need financial assistance.
YMEU Battalion Chief Scott Hower suggested the idea to "pink out" the ambulance to Deputy Chief Dennis Wallace after hearing about a similar form of fundraising at the Center Square Fire Company located in Montgomery County.
“We want to honor those who lost their battle with cancer and raise money for those continuing to fight it,” Wallace told BucksLocalNews.com. “You can’t really miss a pink ambulance rolling down the road.”
In an unveiling ceremony held at YMEU headquarters on Tuesday, June 12, residents presently undergoing treatment and survivors of the disease were on hand to be a part of the special fundraising kick-off event.
"Our 'pink' ambulance symbolizes our concern and support for our community," said Yardley-Makefield Ambulance Squad member Ellyn Fisher.
If you donate to the YMEU’s campaign – which is being called “Community Service Fighting Cancer” – you will be offered the opportunity to sign the pink stripe on the ambulance.
Deputy Chief Wallace explained that the YMEU plans on rotating the color of the stripe annually in order to acknowledge other forms of cancer.
“So far, feedback has been really good,” admitted Wallace. “We had local businesses attend and make donations; community members come out and support it. Everyone thought it was great and seems willing to donate to the cause.”
Wallace said the emergency unit hasn’t established a concrete fundraising goal, but hopes to raise “several thousand dollars for members of the community.
“We’re asking anyone who needs help in any way to give the YMEU a call. If they were in the hospital and need a ride home, were willing to do that. We’ll be there for them.”
The squad asks that if you know an individual or family battling the disease and in need of help, contact Fisher at 215-493-4222 or Efisher@ymeu.org.

What else is there for a Public Safety Director to do? Order Uniforms.
The high demands of First Responders responding to 9-1-1 calls, ER transportation runs or Senior Citizen Taxi Cabs, has lead to the creation of 'UniformSpec'.
For those outside the field, first responders consist of the following professional trades: police, fire, ems, security, swat, nurse...the goes on. Those serving in these fields are the real hero's of society. Day in and day out, they are out earning a living working at their career.
"Uniformed Professionals", referred to by Dan McDonald of Philadelphia, "have been outfitted for hundreds of years. I used to only see the Made in the USA tag in every pant, shirt, piece of footwear I stocked. Society is cost conscious, which I believe is important, but not at the cost of society. UniformSpec allows small businesspeople to research their interests while interacting and purchasing their needs."
As time moves forward, we will be faced with many challenges.
One challenge you can cross of your list is uniformspec.com. Order from anywhere. Set your agencies prefernces and control settings. Un-Authorized purchases are easily confirmed or $25.00 Gift Certificate to future purchase. No more Paperwork.
