    Same here. Sometimes when I'm not sure if it will work well, I will throw in 2-3 used ones. This is a wonderful invention and they really do work.

    This is different from the one I purchased awhile back. It came one to a package and said it could be reused.
    I recently read about one product from Hancocks that you can re-use up to 30 days. I can't remember the brand.

    I'm guessing, but I think it must be the Carbona Dye catchers, as you can use them over 20 -30 times. They also sell those at Jo Ann's, which I always used until we moved, and now I don't have a Jo Ann's & switched to the Shout. IMO Carbona are the best to use especially on quilts w/a lot of red or dk colors that could run.

    These are not available anywhere in BC Canada - I have checked many stores, Walmart, Safeway, quilt shops, fabric shops and they don't know what I'm talking about. Any ideas of where to order them from that will ship to Canada? Many thanks. ;)

    I have saved one of the boxes & there is a toll free # 1-866-CARBONA (227-2662) or address is: Delta Carbona, L.P.
    Fairfield, NJ 07004 and last is the web: www.carbona.com
    Hope this helps.

    Oh, I love them. And I wouldn't think they would work well in reuse. I don't know what is in them to make them work but I would think that once it has been saturated and agitated it wouldn't work so well. I just used my last one yesterday and now have to try to find more; always a challenge around here.
