Prevent Color Bleeding Into The Wash

There is a product in the store laundry area (near products like Shout) called “Color Catcher.” (Looks like fabric softener sheet, but thicker.)

I have used one sheet to wash mixed colors in laundry loads, as it traps any loose dye in the wash water into the sheet you place in the wash. I have even cut the sheet in half and still gotten good results. People who sew and prewash their fabrics before cutting, could maybe use this to maximize the number of fabrics that they could wash together at one time, since the dyes may release in the first washing. It may also be good for a single person, elderly, or bachelor who do not have enough dirty clothes to separate the colors and yet have full loads for economy. May or may not be economical based on the cost and how you will use it.
