Review & Giveaway: Shout Color Catcher With Oxi

As part of Mom Central's Shout Ambassador blog tour, I recently had the chance to try out new Shout Color Catcher With Oxi.


I'm not one who can sit back and ignore the laundry basket all week, and then spend all day doing load after load. I'm OCD - it has to be done. The last thing I want to do is get caught with frozen pipes or a water main break and boom - we're almost out of clean towels and I'm stuck heading off to a laundromat. (The only one in town is super icky!)

I love the color red, and when we painted our kitchen that color, I started buying red towels and dishcloths whenever I could find a good deal on them. I love them, but I live in fear sometimes that I will miss one of those red towels, and DH will end up with a drawer full of pink undershirts! (I'll admit - it would be funny to see my metalhead DH's face if it happened though! LOL!) Thanks to Shout Color Catcher With Oxi, I don't have to worry so much about darker colors - or even red - being mixed in with light fabrics in my washer. I can just toss one of these little pouches with Oxi Powder in the wash before adding my detergent and fabric softener:


They are supposed to be dryer safe, but I pulled them out as I put the clothes in the dyer. (With my old dryer, anything added like that always ends up in my lint trap) I tell you what, it was nice to not have to worry about washing DH's black socks with his lighter colored clothes. I even tossed in my white socks with a load of dark clothes. I'm not sure I'd spend the money to use Shout Color Catcher With Oxi every load - but I like the idea of keeping a box on hand for when I want to make sure my laundry bin is totally empty (like when guests are visiting). If you don't like strong smells, be aware that the scent of what I assume is the Oxi is pretty strong when you open the box.

Don't forget, Shout is offering downloadable coupons on their Facebook page for Shout Free and Color Catcher with Oxi! Head on over to print yours now.

As there are just my husband and I in my house we do laundry maybe twice a week. That is unless I am helping my parents, then about 5 times.
