    I just washed a red, black, yellow and blue quilt with the Shout sheets and I didn't have one bit ofproblem. A good thing because it will be going to the Yakima, WA quilt show tomorrow!

    Swear by them. Son went to college where their main color is red so we have lots of red t-shirts and sweatshirts. Haven't had any bleeding onto different items using these. I also use them when I first wash a quilt before I give it to the recipient.

    I use it and it really does work quite well.

    My grandson had some blue dye streaks on his khaki pants - apparently the pants had been washed with some denim pants. I soaked them overnight with a Shout color catcher and then washed them normally with the color catcher in the water. The blue dye streaks were removed. I've done this before when something wet was laying on a red shirt and picked up the red dye. The color catcher really works. However, I'm not planning on using them in every wash load or throwing lights and darks into the same load - at least not on purpose. LOL!

    I buy the shout color catchers and they do work great. My husband does most of our laundry. He does sort but always has either underwear to do in the dark load or darks to go in the light load whichever load he keeps until after he exercises to put in the wash so he can wash what he is wearing. I am very pleased with the results.

    Thanks for the site for the free sample. It worked like a charm.

    What I want to know is, why is the color that is so eager to leap off one fabric and land where you don't want it, so hard to get off the second fabric?
    The "color" is excess dye coming off the fabric - the other fabrics that absorb it are then permanently dyed and it's almost impossible to remove.

    I am very impressed with Color Catchers, but I only use them to wash new quilting fabrics. I don't use them in regular laundry. They are quite expensive, so I sort my laundry the old fashioned way to avoid color transfer.

    I started using one a couple weeks ago when I got a batch of thrift store fabrics and wanted to wash them all at once. Worked great and now I use it with new clothes as well to make sure that new red tie-dye shirt doesn't bleed all over the other darks.
