I have seen several members mention using color catchers. I found this at Hancocks and it has worked quite well. It is a towel-like piece of fabric that started out white. I just finished using my first (good for 30 loads & comes with a count tracker) and it is really ugly now. I picked them up when Hancocks had notions 1/2 price, for a little over $2. Not bad to get 30 uses out of it. It even took out color that had bled in some flannel.

I use color catchers over and over and they keep getting darker and darker. Good stuff.

I THINK I saw them at Walmart, too - not sure. My mind is only 1 inch long and I've used it up already.

That's the brand I use - I've had no problems with it.

I have only used the "SHOUT" brand. I think there are 30 to a pack and you use one per load. They work really well
