How to keep the Colour in your tack

How does everyone keep their tack so bright??

I have a red halter which now looks like a pale red... not what I was aiming for haha
I have seen pics on here and everyones halters, saddle blankets all keep their colour really well, Howw????
I am also considering changing Buzzs colour from red to blue so I want to be able to keep all his blue stuff nice and bright :P

I wash all my haters and lead ropes. Not like the normal wash like in the washing machine but just hand wash them and they stay nice and bright! For my saddle and bridle I just clean it after every ride. And my polo wraps,saddle pads, saddle covers, etc. I just use the washing machine

Oh and for blankets and stuff when I take them off before I ride I just get one of Dukes brushes and brush away all the dirt to keep it nice but if he was having a rolling fit in the field, Then I would wash it(:

Also making sure you do not leave your gear ( halters, leads, ect ) out in the sun helps keep the color in them and the fading away.

Generally keeping your gear dry and clean is the biggest thing - covers on saddles too would also help when your gear is not being used.

Store things indoors, out of direct sunlight. Wash things regularly as dirt and sweat will leach the color. When you do wash things, wash them with simple soap and cold water, hang dry, not in direct sunlight. When your halter does become faded, buy some RIT dye from the drug store and re-dye it .
