Shout Color Catcher Review + Giveaway

January 17, 2012

Not that long ago I wrote about the Shout Free stain remover spray for your laundry habits – and today I’m going to tell you about another new product from Shout.  It’s the Shout Color Catcher with Oxi!

I was really excited about this particular item, because I’m constantly dealing with multiple color loads and having the large capacity washer and dryer, it almost seems like a waste to run smaller loads.

One of my biggest challenges with small loads is the whites pile.  We like to wash the whites separately – but with the Shout Color Catcher, I can put all the clothes into the same load and not worry as much about my socks turning pink!

Let me tell you, I was *REALLY* hesitant to do this the first time…

So.  I sheepishly took only the socks and underwear and things that I didn’t care so much about and put them together with my colors.

They came out just fine… so.  I got a little more brave the next time and added in the t-shirts… and they came out just fine.

And the next time?? I actually got the courage to wash all of my ‘no-dry- clothes’ together… my red shirts, blue shirts, black shirts, and YES, even white…   And by the time I had them all hanging up – I had totally forgot that they were even washed together!

So – Am I in love??? Yes.  I am able to wash laundry more efficiently in my large capacity washer, and get a good load every time I do laundry.

Am I still Terrified?? Not as much – There’s always that thought… what you’ve known for years of colors running together – but I’m not AS scared.

I am not sure exactly how much this box would cost on a regular purchase, so

Granted… You’re not supposed to put brand new items in with different colors.. like if you have a brand new pair of jeans – don’t wash them with the whites… that’s just asking for it.

But.. For regular washes of regular clothes that are washed on a regular basis?? No problem!

Do you want to try this out for yourself too??

Comments

  1. This looks like fantastic product. My hubby has ruined plenty of loads of whites with the missed red sock! Thanks for this post!

  2. Jessica S. says:

    Would love to use this to keep my diaper colors from running.

  3. I do laundry eveyday, just to keep up on it.

  4. I do laundry all the time!!!! This would help cut back on loads b/c sometimes I only have a little bit of whites and I could mix them in with the light colors if I have these

  5. I do several loads of laundry everyday and it seems like a never ending job.

  6. Anne Nack says:

    I try to spray the stains with a stain remover before I put them in the washer.

  7. I mix my colors and whites.

  8. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I sort for dh and my clothes but for dd I throw them all in together and throw in one of the regular Shout Color Catchers and so far so good! I have had them not work once but it was with a load of diapers. Dh need some black socks clean and he forgot to put them in the basket & I was done with our laundry. I need to run a load of diapers and wipes so I threw them in with a color catcher just in case they ran (they were going to be washed in hot after all). Needless to say they ran and the color catcher didn’t work. Weird thing is they didn’t run black but red! I now have wipes and inserts (luckily the diapers didn’t pick up the color) that are pinkish! LOL

  9. I have twins and a hardworking husband this would make my job 10 times easier. I feel like I spend half my day sorting and washing clothes.

  10. I am a laundry procrastinator!

  11. Rhonda Clemens says:

    I sort colors and whites, but somehow the mixed together and the white come out with a color tinge-can I say NOY HAPPY!!

  13. I use baking soda and vinegar to make my whites brighter sometimes :]

  14. I love hanging my clothes out on the line.

  15. Denise B. says:

    I separate clothes into three groups, lights, whites, and darks. I soak whites in hot water and bleach before washing.

  16. Nikole H. says:

    I used to wash my daughter’s clothes seperately, but it’s just not worth it! These things come in soo handy 🙂 ngiraldi at gmail dot com

  17. i’m bad to just throw everything together when i’m in a hurry

  18. We do about 5 loads of laundry a week.

    Thanks!

  19. I’d love to give them a try. I do a lot of laundry each week…several loads.

  20. I’m pretty lazy when it comes to laundry…so I barely separate my clothes. These would be good for me!

  21. Donna George says:

    I just ruined a perfectly great white shirt because soemthing red bled all over it. I’m a little upset cause it was a great shirt

  22. I separate laundry into colors and whites, but all colors go in together

  23. We do laundry once week takes up day!

  24. I separate my laundry by work clothes, hot wash, and cold wash. Sometimes on the cold wash I still like to separate by color, but with these, it looks like I won’t have to! 🙂

  25. I do laundry as infrequently as possible! lol

  26. Diane Baum says:

    I cram everything together

  27. I aort, sort, sort. Thanks for the giveaway.

  28. I keep a series of bins in my laundry room where I sort clothes as they get dirty rather than before I wash them

    • Smart Guy!! Yeah.. We’re just not that organized right now.

      We used to be when we had a huge walk-in closet!! All the laundry baskets on the floor in the bedroom would get added to as they were getting dirty. I should probably figure that out again here…

  29. Valerie Taylor Mabrey says:

    i try to do a load every other day

  31. I mix all my clothes together and just do the wash on cold.

  32. Lily Kwan says:

    I stuff as many clothes as I can into each load.

  33. Charity S says:

    I wash clothes twice a week.

  34. I do laundry at the end of the week breaking up loads into darks/lights, delicates, heavy duty & sheets/towels.
