    Dr. Beckmann's? Alternative to Shout Colour Catchers?

    Is anyone familiar with the Dr. Beckmann's product?
    Comments?

    I did manage to get one box of the Shout Colour Catchers before they quit selling them here in Canada. So far I think Dr. Beckmann's is pretty much doing the same job. They are manufactured in Germany ... and the site is based out of England. So possibilities for others to acquire them.

    If you check out their site, they have a whole line of products ... including one to use when fabrics bleed!

    Why did they stop selling Color Catchers in Canada? I hadn't heard about that before.

    Can't answer the question ... I did call the company to ask, and got no info, other than no longer in Canada. Lots of the other Shout here!

    I see Dr Beckmans for stain removal, now will have to catch the color catchers by Dr B. The Dr B products are sold here in Wall Mart. Thanks for jogging my memory to even look for these!

    When I read the Dr. B box it stated you had to wash things many times (maybe 6???) before using the product. We didn't buy it. I would like to hear from someone who has used the product according to the box instructions to see if it is worth the effort.
    I'm wondering what is in the colour catcher that it is no longer available here.

    I think that initially they did not have French and English on the packaging. Maybe the company doesn't want the extra expense of dual packaging? I just have my son pick up some color catchers when he travels to the U.S.
