Stain Removal Tips- What to Try
If you are like me, you grab all the dirty clothes you can carry in one trip. You take them to the laundry room and cram them in the washer. Filling the washer to the level that you may need to get duct tape from the garage to keep the lid closed. You don't pay any attention to the color or the type of material. What are all of these buttons? Warm, cold, delicates, permanent press? You do not worry about those details. You put in an estimated correct amount of detergent and press the start button. We don't worry about the details or the aftermath of mixing colors. We definitely do not take the time to search for stains. I typically learn about the stain after my wife finds that I didn't “hear” her tell me about the stain because I was paying attention to the game.
I heard a joke about a wife that asked her husband to do the laundry. After he started the laundry she heard him yelling frantically. She rushed into the laundry room not knowing what she would find. She asked her husband what was wrong and why he was yelling. He replied, “you told me to use shout to remove the stains. So when I found a stain I shouted!”
