LONDON – New research suggests laundering in colder and quicker washing machine cycles can reduce microfibre release while improving garment longevity. Researchers found more colour loss occurred during warmer-longer washes than cold-quick cycles, while the rate of dye desorption was found to increase most significantly between 20 °C and 40 °C.

They also found microfibre release is higher in a 40 °C, 85 min cycle compared to a cold-quick cycle. Concerningly, they found microfibre release is still significant after 16 washes.
