I have been sent a box of Colour Catcher sheets from BzzAgent to review. I'd heard of them, but never really given them much thought. To be honest, I assumed they were just a gimicky thing to get people to spend more money.
But when you have a free sample to try you tend to want to give it a go!
I've been using them now for just over a week. Not in every wash, but in the ones that count! Like Big Lad's school uniform, mine and hubby's work clothes, and my lovely brightly coloured underwear!
I'm a busy mum, you know that. 3 kids, a job, house to run etc. I'm busy. All mums are. And the school uniform wash has, for the last year, been a right royal pain! Grey trousers, navy jumper, and a bright yellow t-shirt! I've always needed to put the t-shirt in a different wash to the rest of the uniform. I found out the hard way that just making up a load of 3 full uniforms is a bad idea - even after umpteen washes - when those bright yellow shirts came out a little less bright after an "awww crap, I forgot to do his uniform! Shove it all in, it'll be 'right!" wash. It wasn't "'right". It was dull! So you can imagine it took a real leap of faith to try the same thing again with a colour catcher! Especially with this years brand new, bright as the sun, yellow t-shirts!
But what do you know.... they came out lovely! Just as bright and yellow as they went in! And the Colour Catcher sheet was a nasty shade and blue-grey!
So now I'm using them in a lot of my washes. Not so much the ones that are mostly blacks because I'm happy that they are close enough in colour for me to not bother - although Colour Catcher's also boast colour protection, so maybe I should to stop them going charcoal grey! But with my work clothes and brightly coloured underwear, the kids vibrant t-shirts, Big Lad and Hubby's uniforms... I use them! I'm a good way through my free sample box, and they are already on my shopping list because now I've tried them, I'm sticking with them!
