Just wondering, how can you prevent clothing (mainly jeans, and sometimes dark cargo pants) from fading? Is there a sort of way to re-dye them?

I've used that stuff before - the version marketed as Zero (I think that's what Woolite is called in Canada.) I don't think it made any difference, really - clothes that bleed still bled, maybe not quite as much, but the water was still deep blue/black. I would only recommend using it on truly dark colors (black, navy blue, maybe green) since I tried it on a pair of medium grey pants which were ruined. The liquid (which is tough to dissolve completely in cold water) stuck to the pants and was tough to rinse out completely. I ended up with a bunch of crusty detergent on the pants which required dry cleaning.there is actually a cold water liquid detergent out now that is specifically made for washing dark colours so they don't fade, and i cannot think of the name of it but it's in with the woolite type of detergents (it has a name like 'dark colour wash')
