    you might want to try this site to make your own color catchers. I haven't made my own yet, but purchased pot ash from pool store to try.

    There is a product made by CARBONA called color & dirt grabber, reusable x30 washings. It looks like a washcloth and so far has worked great for me. Sometimes I use 2. They are sold at our Walmart stores here in southwest Ohio. Look in the laundry detergent aisles of the stores. Good luck and hope you can find them.

    http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/...-catchers.html Here is a link for making your own. One thing I found out about fabric bleeding; it is sometimes caused by drying it not by washing it. That surprised me. Good luck. Perhaps you can find one of those plastic balls you put certain detergents in to put the color catcher in. Seems to me it would save a lot of repair bills.

    I live in British Columbia and have not been able to find color catchers either. They was someone who posted a link for making your own. You might want to check older threads.

    I live in British Columbia and have not been able to find color catchers either. I guess we will have to try making our own or ordering online.

    Look for the competitive brand that I mentioned in an earlier post.
    Or .... fill your suitcase when you come back from Phoenix.

    There was a thread on this wonderful Board on how to make your own color catchers. Has anyone tried that? Do they work? This might be an idea for those who can't buy locally.

    If you shop on Amazon they have them. That is where I bought mine.

    But they won't deliver to Canada unfortunately ( I tried), which is where the original poster is located. Gets us back around to the import restrictions ....
