What laundry sheets should I use for my washing?

You might have heard of laundry sheets or washing sheets and wondered what they can do for your washing. Well, let’s find out. Here we’re looking at exactly what laundry sheets are and why they could benefit your everyday laundry needs.

What are laundry sheets?

As the name suggests, laundry sheets are sheets that you put in your laundry. But why? Laundry sheets can help you look after your clothes to prevent any colour run accidents in your washing machine whilst keeping your protecting colour brightness. They allow for mixed washes, combining darks, colours and whites saving you time, energy and money.

Here we’ll look at the benefits of laundry sheets and why you should consider adding colour sheets to your daily laundry loads. 

Benefits of laundry sheets

The best laundry sheets can benefit your regular washing in a number of ways: 

  • Prevent colour run disasters: Placing a laundry sheet like our Colour Catcher Max Protect in your washing prevents colours running into other items in the wash.
  • Revitalise your clothes: Using a laundry sheet like our Colour Catcher 2in1 not only protects against colour run disasters, but it can help brighten your clothes too. 
  • Keep whites as white as possible and remove stains: Our Dylon Ultra Whitener helps keep your whites super white and can remove stains as well. 

By removing the potential for colour run disasters with a laundry sheet, you can wash light and dark colours together and even colours and whites. This means less time spent separating your clothes and fewer washes – that benefits both the environment and the cost of your energy bills. 

Plus, our laundry sheets are made from 100% naturally-derived fibres too, so you know you’re making an environmentally-friendly choice.

Comparing laundry sheet features
