Let me begin by saying, I am the world's laziest person. Therefore, I am not the best laundry-sorter. Historically I've divided my clothes and my husbands' into three loads--lights, darks and the occasional red load. Then I had my son and I was NOT interested in dividing his laundry into different colors and I do wash his stuff separately in Dreft (a long story) so I was thrilled to discover Shout Color Catcher. You throw a sheet in the wash and if any dyes run, the sheet "catches" them so they don't redeposit on another item. And it does work!!! I throw all of L's clothes (and now T's too, except for reds) into one load and often the sheet comes out discolored but all the clothes look great. So whites, navy, pink, purple, all in one load. My mom was here helping out after T was born and was shocked I threw everything in together and I showed her my secret weapon, the Color Catcher. As a bonus, the sheet can go through the dryer, so no reason to go fishing for it as you transfer from washer to dryer. Thumbs up.
By the way, you can find it in the laundry aisle, by the Spray 'n' Wash.
