I was told to add some salt and the normal vinegar into the water and let the colorful clothes soaked for few minutes. Probably do it once in a while as maintenance, suppose to help maintain the colors.

With vinegar, I haven't tried yet. But with salt for the new clothes, yes I tried before and seems to be true . Mom taught me that it supposed to lock the colors so that it won't run.

Not too difficult for me..I can just don't go to shopping centres. I will need to dig my new clothes out only..hehe bought few months ago still haven't start to wear. Just bought 2 tops and 2 skirts too. For myself, considered done. Just need buy new clothes and shoes for the kids.



Now that elder boy does not grow much and ah boy has not started to grow a lot in short period of time, we have few reasons to go shopping too.

We went to VivoCity and there was no junior outlet though the directory listed a junior outlet address. At the regular Giodano outlet, elder boy was able to fit into the smallest men's size 29. So we bought 2 pieces of the pants. He now wears it with a belt.

Subsequently I was at IMM and saw the signs of Giodano outlet at level one when the shuttle bus was driving into IMM. But I have not set foot to find it in IMM as there is no need to look out for elder boy's pants now.

You looking for junior apparel?

Tats gd.. At least ur boy can find decent bottoms to wear liao. Am looking out for bottoms for my girl. Only upper pri and a bottom tats so called fit for 12 yr old seems too short for her, headache! Can't wear adults' smallest size too as its too loose for her. So it's neither here nor there now.

I put about 1 or 2 teaspoon of salt into the water level just enough to soak. After that squeeze dry and wash as per normal. For the vinegar, from the description by the girl, amount also about the same.
