We all get a little lazy when it comes to laundry. It's a hassle to sort whites and colors, and sometimes you just have time for one load but you need that pink tank and white sundress for a party tonight.
Of course, the price you pay for shortcuts is dingy, grey -- or worse, pink -- socks, t-shirts and underwear.
The problem is even worse this season, where bright colors like aqua, lime green and canary yellow are all the rage paired with ultra-white skirts and shorts.
Well, as we so love to do, we found a product solution to share with you!
Shout Color Catchers are these little cloths that kind of look like Bounce fabric softening sheets. But instead of the dryer, you add them to your wash, where they absorb "loose dye" in the water.
Now, it's not going to work if you put a brand new black t-shirt in hot water with your favorite white pants. That's just crazy asking for a date with trouble. But, it can make it safer to put your whites with a bunch of medium colors if you're in a rush, or don't have enough laundry to merit two loads.
Try Shout Color Catchers for yourself and let us know what you think. Pick up a box at your grocery store or drugstore.com for $3.99.
