The color catcher is a piece of white something with soda ash solution dried onto it. Make your own with washing soda. Just put a tablespoon of the dry soda into a cup of hot water until it dissolves. Put in a yard of white junk fabric, or ratty toweling, and let it become saturated. Let it dry. Cut off a piece and wash it with your bleedable fabric. The soda ash grabs and holds the dye.

This is the ingredients I use to make my homemade laundry soap, only I use Octagon Lndry. soap instead of Ivory..if you want a strong smelling scent, you could use Irish Springs. I've been making my own Lndry soap for almost 2 yrs now and it's GREAT and CHEAP!! :) You only need a Tblsp for a load of clothes unless it's a big or heavily soiled load, then use 1 1/2 to 2 Tbsp.!
Do you make your own Homemade Laundry Soap? Do your friends and family think you're kinda crazy? :-) Give them a pretty sample jar of your homemade soap to try for themselves as a Christmas gift. They will soon see the light! ;-)
