I about freaked when I started pulling all the clothes out. I thought no way, what in the world happened. I looked for the culprit and sure enough my empty tube of lipstick was there. I normally separate whites from darks, and so on. But you know how it is when you only have a few of each, I just threw them all in there for this last load, to get it done.
I had a pair of my hubbies jeans, all his white under linen (underwear and undershirts), all my white hand towels for the bathroom, several of Big B's kinda new school shirts, and many other clothes that I don't want to think about. :(
I quickly started browsing the internet for ways to remove these stains, and all the places I looked said that once the clothes have been dried it's almost impossible to get it out. My heart sank, but I knew I had to try.
So check out these pics, I only put some of the most ruined of clothes. Some items actually got sparred, while others were house clothes to begin with so, Im not too upset.
|Just a few of the ruined clothes.|
|The BAD lipstick, and hey I found a dollar in the wash.|
Probably mine anyway, but still. lol
|One of Big B's fav shirts, he was going to wear this,|
and the other gray shirt below, for first day of
school, so I really had to try and get the stain out.
|Bad lipstick again, and my cleaning supplies.|
Oh PLEASE let this work.
|Ok, ok, come on baby. This is only rubbing alcohol, and|
a dab of the laundry detergent.
|Woo hooo, Success!!!|
|The other shirt I was talking about, man I would have|
been in trouble if I didn't clean this.
|Fingers crossed, and hey check out my mehndi again!!|
Not bad for a first time hugh?
|Came out with a bit more scrubbing than the other shirt,|
T shirt material is way harder to clean, it's so stretchy.
|I had like 7 of these hand towels in the wash.|
Lets see if it's worth the effort of cleaning them.
|Even though I think the stain came out, I DO NOT think|
it's worth the time, and broken fingers, trying to get
these all clean. I think I'll live if I go get some new ones.
So moral of the story
- Do not wash clothes with crayons, pens or lipstick.
- If you do, do not believe other online people who say it wont come out once dried. (Mine did)
- Also please notice that I DID NOT use any nasty chemicals, you can do this with only rubbing alcohol, and a little laundry soap (mine is all natural, give it a try guys, you will love it)
