    They are a lot lighter than the Shout Colour Catchers.
    Just saw on another thread that Colour Catchers are supposed to be place in a mesh bag, if used in a front loading machine (to prevent them ending up in the mechanism). I bet the same would work for these.

    Although I don't have a front loader ... just a top loading stacker!

    I'll be trying to remember now to pin them to something .... or into a mesh lingerie bag.

    Try putting them in a lingerie bag. That's what the Color Catchers package suggests for folks with front load washers (like me). Won't go down the drain then!

I'm wondering why free samples would be sent out on something that's being discontinued? So maybe it's just in your area or one store? There's an 800 number on the box of Color Catchers. Maybe they could tell you what is happening.
    It's only Canadian stores. You're in FL, so you're not affected.
