    They sell a lot of them in the UK, so you could always have a friend from there send you a package or two. :)

    Not that I know of. Perhaps it was one brand of them. I am going to Walmart today and will check if they are still on the shelves.

    They are no longer sold in Canada, but that's the only country I know of that stopped selling them.

    I haven't heard it either. Where did you read or hear this?

    There are several on the market, color catchers and dye magnets, by Shout and by Woolite and a few other companies. They are available here in PA in grocery stores, Target, Walmart, and some quilt shops and Joann stores.

    Just so you know, not all Walmart stores carry them. I can get them in 1-2 local stores, but not the one closest to home. I always find them at Target though.

    They were the subject of a tv commercial last night...no longer have to separate your colors use color catchers..wash your reds and whites together.

    I e-mailed Shout after I found Color Catchers with a stain remover. I only want the regular ones. They told me that they are still on the market and very popular. I told her YES ESPECIALLY among quilters! I got a booklet of coupons..but only .25 off Color Catchers. Nothing else in the booklet I could use... I was just glad to know my fav notion is still going to be around!

    My friend in Canada can't get them but I can find there in my local stores. I hope they don't discontinue them.

    My WM had them on clearance and now does not have them. Now I have to buy the brand JA's sells. I don't think they work nearly as well as the Shout brand. I really miss the Shout color catchers.

    I just received a free sample in the mail. I doubt they would send that out if they were going off the market.

    I can still get them Kmart & Walmart. Hope they don't take them away--I really use them a lot.

    A person in Canada said they were being discontinued, but so far I still see them here.

    Ooh, I want to FIND a box. JoAnn's quit carrying them here for some reason.Maybe they will get more in. I called just now and they didn't say it was because they pulled them off the market or anything...so I'm hoping they will still be available.

    I wonder what the Canadian government knows that the rest do not or are ignoring? That is assuming it is the government that is blocking the sale. It makes no sense for a company to not sell something in Canada that is readily available in other countries unless it is prohibited from doing so.
