If you ask my teen, she would say that only Goth people should wear that much black. She gets upset that I will not allow her to wear only black 24/7. Goth Girl is sweet, but Goth.
Johnny Cash had a hit song about a man in black. He explained why he wore only black. He was not Goth, for him it was a statement of solidarity with those less fortunate. ...

Sounds like something Ian Malcolm from Jurassic Park might do, don't recall him wearing anything other than black, either in the middle of a freaking tropical jungle. Black clothing still needs to be cleaned, and as others have stated, not that difficult to sperate colors and toss in the wash.

Black, or dark colored clothing shows just as much as most other colors of clothes. While it might not show dark stains, it sure does highlight lint, white and/or tan pet hair/fur, and dandruff for example. JMHO ;-)

In the book, Ian Malcolm explained that black clothes would cool him by absorbing heat from the body. Which may be true, but it also pulls heat from the glaring sun.

Regular washing machine seems to work just fine for a variety of colors.

@Damien: If you get some roller chain Grease on your clothes and can't wash right away then it will be hard and expensive to get out and all those chemicals with turn your clothes to rags

Damien, just use some ordinary baby/body powder, or cornstarch on "roller chain grease", cheap and easy, no need for "harsh chemicals". :-)

The Amish do not boil their clothes. Most Amish get power for their washing machines from a diesel generator, which is typically used to generate electrical power or to drive a pneumatic (air) motor. This can involve a good bit of noise and hassle, but is a tangible example of the Amish compromise over electricity. To get all the laundry done may take a few loads.

Just another example of someone having a "tiny" bit of information, however incorrect it might be, and rather than "research" said information, far too many people just take it for truth. Remember, we are ALL after all "RANDOM STRANGERS". (Some, "stranger" than others) ;-)

Most Amish use gas powered weed wackers. They will use electric and cell phones at their place of business that the "English" shop at. The phones will not go home with them. No electricity at the homes. The Amish wear black.
