Colour Catcher Review


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!

The Challenge!


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!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
