Someday I'm going to actually make some of these. I already have the Washing Soda. LOL Found it in the grocery store in the laundry soap aisle.

Just add a 1/2 teaspoon of washing soda to the wash water and throw in a used dryer sheet. My grandmother use a man's white handkerchief.

Wow! What good advice. Saves me the trouble of actually making the things. I was procrastinating.

I can't get color catchers now at our local WM. or at the local BI-LO grocery store, they both were carrying them but not any more. Does any one else have that problem? I called the co. and they sent me a coupon for free box which I found at walgreens but they were 5.69. maybe I will try making my own. thanks for the infor.
