Recently I was asked if I would like to review the Dr Beckmann Colour and Dirt Collector. Being the undomesticated parent I am, the only time I have ever used something like this is when I have bought something new and was worried it would run and ruin the rest of the wash! Also I always mix my washing and never really had any major issues so I honestly thought it wasn’t something I really needed to use all the time!
Ha! How wrong was I! Well it turns out I was totally wrong. Apparently colours do run in the wash even if you can’t see it and boy was I shocked, I mean who knew! Probably everyone except me. Olivia’s bright yellow waterproof coat, ran. My new maroon onesie (I’m sorry I do own one and it is ridiculously comfy!), it ran too. My black work trousers and socks, totally ran, a lot! Just look at my pictures to see the proof.
I am horrified to think that I had been throwing Olivia’s white school t-shirts and socks in with all these colours, major fail! No wonder they start going grey and nasty looking! This is going to be stopping unless I am using one of these fabulous colour and dirt collector sheets from now on. I am a convert. I have placed the used sheets next to an unused one so you can actually see how much colour it has collected!
How does it work?
Using innovative microfibre technology, the extra fine fibres provide a larger surface area for the stray colour from your clothes to lock onto instead of ending up back on your washing. This helps your clothes to stay brighter for longer.
You pop 1 sheet (or 2 for heavier dyed garments) into the back of the machine before you add your washing and then wash as normal. It’s as easy as that. Visit Dr Beckmann for more information.
