This is one product that I would never be without. I am always overloaded with different types of laundry to get through and actually think I am doing the laundry of an entire football team rather than a family of three!
I found these sheets of wonder a few years ago on the supermarket shelves next to the laundry aids and found them to be a huge asset to the daily laundry handling.
I was a bit sceptical at first time of use but was amazed at how much colour the catcher did catch upon removal from the machine. I now wash different colours together with confidence knowing that my colours stay bright.
This is what the pack states.....
Removes loose dye from the wash. Eliminates the risk of colour runs ruining clothes.Allows mixed wash – wash with confidence.Reduce the number of washes.Effective even at 30c. The proof is on the sheet!Every time you wash bright or dark coloured clothes, traces of dye bleed into your laundry. These dyes may completely ruin your wash or leave your clothes with a dull, grubby appearance.COLOUR CATCHER is a treated sheet with special ingredients which act like a magnet, removing loose dyes and dirt during the washing process. Now you can wash with confidence, prevent discolouration to your laundry and keep your colours bright.Thanks to Colour Catcher you now can:Prevent colour runs, washing in total confidence.Mix your coloured and white clothes together without having to worry.Reduce the need to separate clothes prior to the wash and therefore the amount of washes needed, which saves you time and money.Keep Colours bright and whites white.
I find that these do work very well although I do not mix heavy coloureds such as jeans and black trousers with my whites but for everyday mixed colours they are a wonderful invention. I used to look at a red and white stripe top and wonder if it would be okay to go in the wash with a navy tee shirt and now I no longer have to worry as the white parts of clothes stay white and the colours stay bright. The colour catcher after the wash has all the loose dyes locked in and makes washing so much easier.
Less sorting = fewer wash loads. Save time, water, energy and detergent.
More environmentally friendly. No release of chemicals into the water.
I usually purchase them in packs of 24 from Sainsbury's and they retail at around £3.20 but very often they are on offer at £2. I think they come in packs of 10 also but I haven't seen them for a while.
I would really recommend this product to make laundry time easier to handle and to keep clothes bright and fresh looking.
This was on offer for a free sample I never used to believe gimmicks like this worked but this is not a gimmick and by Jove it works!
This was one sheet was thrown in with a load of colors during one wash where you can still add your regular fabric and conditioner, it will not prevent them from working at all, in fact you won't notice the difference until you open that washing machine door again.
The sheet feels like a fabric itself, it has a unique feel almost like a criss cross pattern, this enables the sheet to ABSORB the dye's or colors that run and be caught better. So this acts more like a magnetic.
This was placed in the centre of the wash but anywhere will do...as long as it's actually in the machine of course!:)
When the wash finished I was ,sadly in some respects, eager to see what had been caught for we have been washing these colors for quite some time yet when we managed to locate the sheet it was grey, black and purple. Shocked.
I was confident it wouldn't work. I was also confident that it would be clear yet even after all the washes we had done it STILL absorbed those extra colors that run.
So the free sample worked and we are now avid fans and regularly buy these and add to each wash.
If you head to COLORCATCHER.CO.UK you can see the extensive range of other catchers they do. There's one to pick up BACTERIA[!] and one for your whites as well.
This is also reasonably priced and fits into our budget well. We buy this locally for £3.20 for 24 sheets, really? Oh yes.
