This is an absolute miracle product, and I have no idea why it's not stocked in more places. I've had to buy it online, here, the last two times I've bought it.

No matter what washing machine you are using, you can still have trouble with dye transfer. _Color Catcher_ takes care of that problem. Toss one (or two, if you have some new red or other potentially problematic item) in with the wash and the floating dyes stick to it and not your other clothes. Every time.

When an item of in the wash bleeds, the dye goes in the water and then into every other susceptible item in the wash. Color catcher grabs that dye out of the water, and it turns funny colors instead of your nice while tablecloth. Or socks.

I'm currently using the commercial machines in the laundry room downstairs instead of my own machines, and these little wonders even work here. (In fact, that's why I bought them.)

No more pink or odd-colored underwear, or strangely tinted dress shirts.

****Note***: some color transfer takes place when you leave wet laundry in the washer, and this product does NOT help that. Come take it out promptly if you know you've got something about which you have concern, like new red socks or something similar. NOTHING can stop direct fabric to fabric transfer.

And sorting your laundry appropriately really helps, too. Darks with darks, new items by themselves if at all possible (or in with stable blacks, if using that much water gives you palpitations), lights with lights. Use the right water temp, too.

Get some, and try them out!

I don't think these work as well as the old terry cloth ones - but they are better than nothing. I do see colors on them - but have never been able to prove that my clothes are any less dingy.

But I use them - just in case - anyway. In both light & dark loads!

    Use these regularly when I wash my quilts. They prevent the colors from bleeding and protect my hard work. When I present quilts as gifts, I give these to the recipient.

    As parents of 6, we have a TON of laundry, and like to keep clothes in the best condition possible...for hand me down purposes. Over the years I have become a bit of a laundry pro. My oldest son tries to challenge me with new stains! I love these Color Catchers for the mixed loads, clothes that are white & have bright colors on the same piece of clothing. And they really do keep brights brighter. They aren't inexpensive, but the investment is worth it!

      I like to combine light colors and dark colors in my washer in order to wash more clothes in a single load. I drop one Shout Color Catcher cloth in my washer to totally trap and absorb loose dyes. I can wash white and red items together with no worry of the red dyes bleeding into the white items -- the white items stay white and the red items stay red. This product not only works exactly as advertised, but it's very reasonably priced. I wouldn't be without it.

        I include one of these sheets any time I am washing new clothes, or clothes that I am not sure if the color runs. It has saved my daughter's and my clothes many times. It basically stops the color running from clothes from ruining other clothes in the wash. I still don't chance washing whites and colors together, but this is a great safety measure.

              When I wash a clothing item for the first time, I always wash it separately from other items. I always wash red items only with red items. I place all other items into one load and use a Shout color catcher sheet. I no longer have to separate lights and darks. I love these color catchers and have been using them for many years.

                I use this product daily and love the results. I used to sort my cloths, but now I find myself mixing colors with whites and throw one sheet in washer and start the wash. I've never had a bad result. Some may think these are expensive, but if you can reduce the number of loads you wash its a great deal. I too find these hard to find in my area and I don't know why. I live in an urban area. I purchase by the case when I find them. I'm a textile artist and love these when working with dyes. I sometimes use two in a wash load depending on colors. Red sure can run and of course black. So far great results.

                  Putting one of these cloths in a washer load can even prevent not only new items from bleeding, but also just dyes that wash out over time so the whole load is cleaner.

                      I don't do a load of laundry without one. Now I don't even need to sort my laundry because these things ensure I don't have any fading or bleeding onto other clothing.

                          I use one sheet with every load - never know when there might be random dye. Even though I separate loads, I still use even with the lights load to catch anything random that might find its way into the water.
