Tips from the Vault: Checked Fabric

Just for you, The Shopping Sherpa. Use hint with caution!

CLEANING
LAUNDRY, IRONING, GENERAL CLEANING

Check: When washing a garment of black and white check material, if a teaspoon of blue-black ink is put in the rinsing water the check will come out clearer.

Do you think I'd get the same effect if I just chucked a biro in with the wash?

Eeeep! I think I'd be too scared to try this one! Can someone explain why the ink would make the black check darker and NOT completely stuff up the white? It makes no sense!
