No more laundry accidents

I’ve always been a fan of those disposable laundry sheets you stick into a mixed wash to stop colours from running into each other, and to keep the whites white – great for students and households with smaller washloads.

Dr Beckmann has gone one better with a reuseable colour collector.

It’s a piece of white towelling that works in the same way, picking up all the loose bits of colour and dirt –  and can be used up to 30 times.

Around £3 from supermarkets.
