my laundry mishaps!
I teach music lessons in my home one night a week. My first student was about to show up the other night and I was running around getting everything ready with my small kids before she came. I had a few minutes to grab something to eat and as I was getting the spaghetti out of the pot, the red sauce splashed up on me. ugh!
The first thing I did of course, was take a picture in the bathroom mirror since I was still wearing the shirt and had no time to change. lol.
The next thing I did was take a little of my very favorite cleaner, Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate and rub it into the spots with some water. And the stain actually came out right then! I didn't lose any time changing and was able to eat and teach as planned. I waited a day or two before I had a chance to wash the shirt as I normally would have done and the end result was a very clean shirt:)
I like to keep a small 4 oz. bottle of the Basic H2 in my laundry room to put on spots and stains. And believe me, with a toddler and baby, we have lots of spots and stains! I also use Nature Bright Laundry Booster and Stain Remover to whiten and brighten our laundry, although I didn't need it for this particular shirt. It is a great and safe alternative to bleach. I talk about how much I love the Nature Bright and also the other Laundry Products that I love so much in the blog post about Airing the Dirty Laundry. It is a good read, especially for parents of small children! Be warned however, that there are some graphic before pictures in that post. :)
