My mother-in-law told me that you can pour 1 cup of vinegar in

with your clothes to set the color. I've never tried it, but she

has. After you put your clothes in to wash and the tub has filled,

stop the washer and pour in vinegar. Let it soak for 10-15 minutes,

and then continue washing. You'll have to wash again afterwards to

remove the vinegar smell.
