"colour cather lesaks" ???

We have noticed that when something says "wash before use" we really should folllow the advice otherwise DS asthma goes wild. No idea why but I supose is something they may use in the dyes that cause the problem.

I would stop using them, or at least rinsing the things twice and see how it goes.

not noticed any problems and I've used them a fair bit. I don't think they are even chemical based as such. At this time of year it is more likely to be a reaction to putting on central heating and the drier air indoors.

I have just realized that, after 6 weeks of thinking I had poison sumac on the back of my neck, the color catcher has been causing this. My skin bubbled, oozed, and itched like poison ivy. I put on a shirt not ever washed with color catcher and within a day the rash was 80% gone.

My clothes are now tainted with something in color catcher that is causing this rash. I have washed the same clothes at least 6 times with the color catcher. So far one wash without the color catcher has not removed the mystery chemical. I hope it washes out after several washes or else I will have to throw them away.
