    I just washed a batik baby quilt to put in the mail tomorrow.After taking it out of the washer the color catcher was as good as when I put it in. Must of done a good job prewashing my batiks.
    Are they any good after the`ve been wet?

    I've been told they're reusable, even after they soak up a lot of color.

    I saw a product at Hancock Fabrics called something like "color catcher" and it said that it was reusable.

    I didn't know you could reuse them. Good to know. I just started using them.
