I just washed a batik baby quilt to put in the mail tomorrow.After taking it out of the washer the color catcher was as good as when I put it in. Must of done a good job prewashing my batiks.
Are they any good after the`ve been wet?

I've been told they're reusable, even after they soak up a lot of color.

I saw a product at Hancock Fabrics called something like "color catcher" and it said that it was reusable.
