Colour Catcher from Dylon!
Okay, now this is a challenge. I’m sitting here staring at my blank screen struggling to think about how to make this an interesting blog. I mean, it’s about a product you shove in your washing machine that soaks up excess dye from clothes that aren’t colour fast. Whoop de doo! Contain your excitement please!
Right, let’s approach this from a metaphorical angle. Let’s imagine there’s a daily battle in my washing machine. The white socks versus the black jeans. Usually the white socks lose miserably and become down hearted and well…grey? This is a common occurrance as I can’t be arsed to split them up and sort my washing into neat separate piles of colours and whites – mainly I just leave them to fight it out amidst the suds and the froth. It’s not just the white socks that suffer, it’s school shirts, white t’shirts and the like. Cruel aren’t I.
Soooo…..when Dylon sent me some Colour Catchers to try out, I thought I’d let that get in the way of the two opposing colours. Could it possibly achieve some sort of equilibrium and stop the whites from having such a hard time? I thought I’d set up the washing machine battle of all time.

Ladles and Jellyspoons let me introduce……..
‘The Bright Luminous Pink Bath Towel versus the Snow White Dinner Jacket Shirt’
Well, I bundled them into the battle zone, and desperately hoped that the white shirt wouldn’t lose too out badly. The pink towel was looking downright aggressive so I didn’t hold out too much hope.
With a heavy heart I pushed the colour catcher in at the back of them both, said my farewells to the white shirt, wished it luck, loaded the washing liquid and slammed the door shut. I shot an arrow prayer up to the God of White Goods, and waited until the cycle had completed.
The washing cycle finished, the washing machine beeped and flashed its little light at me. I knew the moment could not be put off any longer. I expected a forlorn pastelle coloured, formerly white shirt and a jubilant, victorious pink towel. I also thought I’d have a hell of a time explaining why I did such a stupid thing to my husbands only nice white shirt.
But it was all ok! With the Colour Catcher’s help, they’d got on fine. It looked like there were no battle scars at all, both items of clothing came out exactly as they went in. A white shirt, and a pink towel! Nothing short of a miracle!
Here’s the Colour Catcher before it went in:
And here it is after it came out of the wash:
I was very relieved and very happy, and so was the white shirt. If you’d like your very own Colour Catcher too, you can find them HERE!
Many thanks to Dylon for sending me a sample! No other financial reward was given although I bl**dy well deserve a ‘Well done!’ sticker considering how long it took me to think of ways to make this even half interesting or readable. I tried, I really did!
