Just call me Little Susie CrapMaker, because I have managed to bungle a load of laundry worse than any load of laundry has ever been bungled in the entire history of laundry load bungles.
Ever washed and dried lip balm? DARK beet colored waxy lip balm? All over your favorite pair of shorts and husband’s (very expensive) dress shirts?
So maybe some of you have done this. I see your lip balm and raise you.
Ever try to spray SHOUT! onto your dark waxy stained shorts? Sure you have. So did I. Try being the key word here.
I realized that after I sprayed the living daylights out of my shorts the bottle I held read “Tilex Mold and Mildew Remover with SUPER DUPER IMMEDIATE BLEACH AND BURN ACTION” instead of “SHOUT!”
(Insert a real shout here. Maybe a few swear words.)
Pretty bad right? Oh, it gets worse.
One pair of shorts down, I sprayed the rest of the stained items with SHOUT! for real, for real and let them soak overnight. The next morning I gathered up the clothes Cody had worn to work the day before and threw them in with the cursed load, the cursed load was soaked, it wasn’t possibly contagious right? Right. The clothes washed well, the stains appeared to be a thing of the past. On to the dryer!
Did you know Cody keeps pens in his shirt pocket at work?
Neither did I!
Until I opened the dryer and noticed the pen that was in his pocket had
Spray. Soak. Repeat.
For the third time. On the same load. In less than 24 hours.
Ever notice how bad things come in threes? I have. Three times.
