    I also use the Shout brand -- I get mine in WallyWorld next to the laundry detergents.

    I use them when I'm washing fabric the first time -- especially darks or reds...

    I use them, and taught my DD to use them when doing her laundry. She doesn't sort things! :lol: :lol:

    I don't know if it's still around but there was one called a dye catcher. Did the same thing as the color catcher. Love them esp if DH does the laundry. He doesn't sort as well as he could or should.

    I always use one when I wash my quilts for the first time. I just get the Shout brand ones. They are usually right by the laundry detergent.

    Well thanks everyone one! And what a good Idea to give them with a quilt as part of gift...! So another question? Do you wash quilts before you give them away?
