Stains like to appear at the most inopportune moments. Stains can be pesky and stains can be the demise of a perfectly good pair of pants or pretty blouse. And, since I've become a mom, I've dealt with more stain action than I would care to admit.
|Laundry day at the cottage - tough to deal with set in stains|
Some of the worst stains I've dealt with are those which babies produce. I found myself pleading with my mum, early on in my motherhood career for her to help me with getting baby clothing, clean. I loved dressing my babies in uber-cute outfits, yet they didn't seem to dig the cuteness as much as I did. On occasions, too many to count, I found myself looking at spit-up stained shirts and diaper blow-out bottoms with despair.
We made it through that baby stage, but, only to find myself in a whole new world of stains. Now, with elementary school aged children, I find my worst stains to deal with are grass stains on the knees of my son, and paint stains on the sleeves of my daughter's shirts. A close second is chocolate milk stains, dribbled down the front of their shirts from their daily milk at lunch time. If they were home when these incidents occurred, I could quickly treat and launder the clothing, in hopes of the stain not setting. But, since most staining occurs while they are at school, it may be several hours before I get the chance to lay eyes on the stains and take care of them.
Introducing the Resolve Tip Exchange
I admit to previously having such bad stains that I've deemed the clothing to be unwearable. Stains (and rips) on my children's clothing is just not acceptable to me. In the past, I've retired clothing early, just because they didn't look their best any longer. Now, with the Resolve Tip Exchange right at my fingertips I can find stain removal solutions and inspiration from fellow moms and dads. People, just like you and I, who've seen it all, are sharing their resolutions for ridding clothing of daunting stains.
Share a Tip
One of my worst stains, is dribbled chocolate milk spilled down the fronts of shirts. It is a stain that has plagued me for many years and I've experimented with many products and at home solutions. I shared my tip for ridding the garment of the stain by mixing up part dish washing detergent with hot water and using it to scrub the stain out.
