Today’s post is inspired by my friend Priyanka’s blog, Glamour and Giggles. She’s doing a new weekly series called “Friday Night Ramblings,” in which she veers away from her typical beauty-related posts & just talks about whatever. She’s been encouraging others to join her so I figured, why not? I probably won’t do these every Friday but I’ll certainly do them whenever I have something I feel like sharing.
What I’d like to share with you today is how I ruined some of my clothes, then saved them again with just $2 & 15 minutes. How did I ruin them, you ask? To put it bluntly, I was being a moron. I threw my white socks & bras in the wash with some dark clothes. Now, I’ve done this before & it’s usually no big deal. Except this time, I also had a brand new pair of blue jeans in the wash.
Once I saw my newly blue tie-dyed socks & bras, I realized my mistake. I did what I always do in these situations & consulted google for exact instructions on how to fix this mess. Google suggested I throw the clothes in some bleach water for 15 minutes. More specifically, it suggested a ratio of 1 part bleach to 30 parts water (just in case you find yourself in this same scenario someday).
I didn’t have any bleach on hand or a bucket to soak the clothing in. So, off to the Dollar Tree I went. I got a plastic bucket & a large bottle of bleach for $1 each. I soaked my ruined clothing in the bleach water for 15 minutes, as instructed by Google & voila! My whites were white again.
If you take one thing from this post, it’s separate your clothing properly. If it’s too late for that lesson, follow my instructions above. If nothing else, I hope you got a chuckle out of my example of how NOT to be a “domestic goddess.”
What’s the biggest laundry mistake you’ve ever made? Were you able to fix it? Leave me a comment. Happy Friday & have a great weekend!
