Problems With Dye Bleeding?


Do you have problems with dye bleeding? We recommend “Short Color Catcher.” These look like dryer fabric softener sheets. Just add 2 or 3 sheets to the wash, using cold water, the first time you wash your quilt. Don’t put your quilt in the dryer if you pick up any color on these sheets. Continue to use this method every time you wash your quilt until there is no more color on the Color Catcher sheets. You can find this product at grocery stores in the laundry aisle.
