Absolutely, Michelle. I was not going to trust a product that's new to me. The box of colour catchers is always on top of my washing machine. :)

Well, gloves do help with that hot hot water!! LOL But you could also use a wooden spoon to agitate and keep your hands out of the hot water as much as possible.

Lorchen you can still use the color catchers in the wash when you wash the finished quilt. Just a little bit of insurance.

I would use gloves because that way I can tolerate hotter water.

Thanks Margo and Michelle.

I normally use 'colour catchers' (in the machine or hand wash), but I was given this bottle of Retayne and so I might as well use it.

Lorchen, I have used it with small batches of fabric by hand. I just reduce the amount so it's correct for my fabric yardage (sometimes it's just a teaspoon or so) and use a washbasin with very hot water. Agitate by hand, rinse thoroughly.

Thanks Michelle! Do you need to use gloves when you do this by hand??

Lorchen, if she doesn't see this on the forum, you might want to send a PM to Vicki Welsh: [url]community/my-profile/VWelsh[/url]

And check out her blog while you're at it! http://vickiwelsh.typepad.com/
