Has anyone used these sheets? What is your success rate? What colors? What brand do you use, or what brand was not successful?
I haven't used them but have heard lots of good things about them. Good luck.
I haven't used these but the name that comes to mind as to seeing mentioned the most is "color catchers" I don't know if that is an actual brand name or just something that everyone calls these things.
Joni--the sheets work great, especially on red and deep-colored fabrics. I made a quilt for my niece and then washed it (without prewashing the fabrics first) and used this and it really worked on grabbing the reds! I think it was the Shout brand.
Fantastic, now I can go out and purchase the correct brand with much confidence! Thank You !
Here's another "thumbs up" for Shout Color Catchers! I use them all the time for colors I'm unsure of and haven't been disappointed yet.
I've never heard of Shout Color Catchers but have been looking at different products because I stopped pre-washing my fabric and I have 2 quilts I'm finishing with white backgrounds and darker color blocks. Where can I purchase?
Joy, in the laundry isle of any super market or Walmart.
Thank you! I will check today!
I have used 'Color Catcher' by Shout successfully. All colors. However, if you have a front load washer you may want ot consider safety pinning the sheet to the quilt or garmet. I did not do this and ended up with the sheet clogged in my machine drain.
Oh, one more thing. I have only used the color catchers in cold water.

They work great at any temperature.
Oh this tip is fabulous! I can remember learning in my high school art class that REDS are most likely to fade and to run.
ooooooh, I'm going to have to get me some. great tip thanks so much.
