Oh shizzzzzz!

Just a quick little note here. I totally pulled a Camie today! I will first off brag a tad about my laundry SKILLZ! I love laundry. I am usually super good. I never make a mistake with drying stuff I shouldn't or mixing colors etc... WELL, today I thought is was about that time to start making the switch to Gab's bigger sized clothes. I have a ton of stuff that I've been collecting. So I threw it all in the wash and went about my duties. I later go to put it in the dryer.....I notice right away that everything even slightly lighter colored is splotched to death with brownish and dark spots! As well as a completely drab horrid color!!!! (SCREAM- brand new clothes ruined!) I will admit that I purchased Gabby some dark brown Juicy Corduroy pants and accidentally turned my wash water on HOT!!!!!!!!!! I ruined some really fabulous things not to mention that cute pink 'bargain' find from TJ's the other day! Oh, I could kill myself! I did rush to the store to buy color safe bleach and try again (after removing the dark pants)

Ugh! :(

How did the bleach work? I've been meaning to buy that stuff--I need it!

A while back I had just bought a new shirt and washed it with a yellow crayon and it melted everywhere in the dryer (never stick crayons in your pocket when you are cleaning up!) I was so sad I did it: I went out and bought the shirt again. I'm a loser, I know!

PS I haven't heard that word forever --shiz. Made me laugh :)

Brandi, I washed Gabby's clothes 3 additional times that same night....2 loads with the color safe bleach. I guess it worked but not a miracle. I had really high expectations that were not exactly met. BUT, it took out all the spotty stains for sure.
You can't have perfection I guess.

I'd go buy the shirt again too :)

I would be so ticked! I'm glad they are almost all better at least!

Taylor Family said...

Holy crap! I would totally flip out if that happened. Luckly you are domesticated enough to know about this color safe bleach you are talking about. I must go to the store and get some!
