Here’s a shorter shortcut for you DSPs who either hate doing laundry, don’t know how to do laundry, or just don’t have enough time in the day to sort things out.
I discovered one of the greatest inventions of the century
Laundry day for a Domestic Square Peg like me used to mean stress- stress about sorting clothes according to color, fabric, delicates, dirt quantity, his and hers…but was I making it too complicated? That’s how my mom taught me—as did the random red soccer sock that invariably found itself in with a white wash. We all know how that turns out.
But then I discovered one of the greatest inventions of the century: SC Johnson’s Shout® Color Catcher®. Check it out at their super-clean and informative website. The makers of the famous Shout® Stain Remover have outdone themselves with this simple solution to separation anxiety. What looks like a simple dryer sheet that protects against static cling acts like a little magnet that actually attracts dyes in wash water so they don’t land on your white T-shirt or anything else.
Miracle Color Cure
What could make laundry day any easier? Seriously! I had to see the dye on the sheet to believe it—so I did my own experiment with an old white shirt and brand new red dishtowel and Voila! The only pink was on the Color Catcher®!
If there’s one thing every Domestic Square Peg needs in the laundry room (OK, besides detergent) it’s a tool that keeps colors from bleeding. I save time not sorting, save money by not washing half-loads, save peace of mind by knowing that no matter how scatter-brained I am, I won’t screw up another laundry load because of mixing colors. Now if can just figure out what the heck “perm-press” is all about.
