    I use Synthrapol. Works better, in my opinion, than color catchers.

    Whichever one you use, you want to use it in a washing machine that uses LOTS of water. Water is necessary to dilute any bleeds that do occur.

    I use Shout Color Catchers, sometimes two or three, depending on the fabric. I have a front loader machine which conserves water and have not a any problems with colors.

    I too use Shout color catchers, buy them at Walmart in the laundry section of the store.

    Color catchers can be found at Joann Fabrics, too. Great way to use those extra coupons....
