that I made yesterday rubs off. I saw a bit on my hands, but didn't realize it was all over my machine(can't get it all off:() and countertop until I finished sewing. It's a poly fabric in a very dark black, lined with off white lining fabric.
So now I want to wash them so the color doesn't wind up on the wall, bedding, anything that touches it. If I wash with a couple of Color Catcher sheets, will it be ok?
I know there are no guarantees, but if you have any other suggestions, I could use 'em,please.

The only thing I can add is that you may have to wash them several times...I had red sheets that I washed with a couple of color catches and they ran all over everything until about the third or fourth wash. The only saving grace is that when I rewashed the other items separately with a couple of color catchers, the red dye washed out of them.

Ohhh, that happened to me with some Conso black cording with lip that I was sewing on a cushion. I didn't know I was supposed to rinse it in cold water until the water runs clear, then air dry.

I decided to toss them in the washer with 5 Color Catcher sheets. They turned out fabulous!!! And the color doesn't rub off anymore, so I'm a happy camper Now to try to get more of it off the hard surfaces.

Try a Magic Eraser -- I use it on my cutting table to get off Sharpie markers.
