    I used a whole box on one quilt which I had to wash 4 times before the red totally came out, I put in 6 of them into the washer at a time. Who would have thought that red thread would cause such a problem. I highly recommend the product.

    Out of curiosity I googled Shout Color Catchers. The directions say use one time and throw away.
    This is different from the one I purchased awhile back. It came one to a package and said it could be reused.

    I've reused mine only 2-3 times then pitch them, the one you can buy at Jo Ann's can be used multiple times...it is a cloth.

    I do use them and they really work. You can tell when you take it out of the washer.

    I used to use the Carbona Dye catchers, but have been using the Shout Color Catchers since they have been available here. I always use one when I prewash new fabrics and when I have dark clothing to launder. They both work great, but the Shout product is easier to find and less expensive. (The directions on the Carbona product say you can use them many times ?30? or so,but who counts!)

    I use them as well. I prewash all my quilting fabric with them before I take the fabric downstairs to my sewing room.
    I will also occassionally use them in the regular laundry if washing reds or purples with lighter clothing.

    I use them when I wash a new quilt for the first time. I use 3. They work great and I tell the reciepient of the quilt to use them the first couple of times they wash the quilt.

    I've reused mine probably up to six times, if it comes out the same colour it was when I started. As soon as it gets dark from dyes I toss it. Aren't they just the greatest little invention!!!

    I love them for batiks. Have also used them on my son's shirt when he washed wrong colors together and one bleed on the other. Rewashed while shirt was wet and color catcher took the color and "bleed" was gone!!

    I've never tried that, will have to remember this, because when I've not used a Color Catcher & had something bleed I just thought it was ruined.

    Do you use the ones by Shout or another brand?
