Laundry in our home is done by my husband, and quite often he is so tired from a busy work week that he can only do one load of laundry. Unfortunately, this means that the whites sit around waiting to be washed for over a week, which isn’t good if they have soils and stains settling in.
Shout created a new product, Shout Color Catcher with Oxi, to solve this and other problems. Shout Color Catcher helps make laundry time easier by letting you mix your loads (yes, I mean mixing colors and whites!) so instead of doing two half loads of laundry and wasting time and money, you can combine it all into one load. Shout Color Catcher sheets absorb and trap loose dyes in your wash water, protecting clothes against color bleeds and helping preserve original colors. The sheets change color as they absorb those loose dyes floating around, and are even effective in warm loads of laundry. The benefits? No more money wasted on half loads and no more time wasted sorting your laundry, and the space taken by multiple laundry storage bins at home? No longer needed, because you can toss it all together now.
To be honest, we first tried it out with clothes we don’t love as much, because if it didn’t work that is an expensive problem. With several mixed loads of laundry (excluding red items), the clothes came back to us clean, and the whites weren’t dingy, but instead surprisingly bright. It may be the Oxi, but we were surprised by how clean everything was, and my husband is happy to have an easier laundry time, so he can come home and relax with our son at the end of a busy work week.
I have a few red items of clothing that I’m still tentative about trying (I don’t want all my white clothes to be pink) but the results of our laundry experiment with Shout Color Catcher Laundry Sheets is positive enough that I’m going to try a test run this weekend. If this works out, I’d say the chore of laundry has officially been revolutionized and there may never be an “Oops!” moment in households anywhere again. Shout Color Fast laundry sheets are safe for all color fast clothes and
