You know, I have to admit that I get a cheap thrill out of finding recipes for things that I just assumed I would always have to buy.
I’m really not a complicated woman to please.
So, one of the kids had a leaky scab overnight that bled all over my cream colored, Egyptian cotton, super high thread count sheets. Sheets that I probably won’t be able to replace for quite awhile.
And of course no one told me about it for at least three days. So the stain just kept soaking in and getting slept on.
So when I found it today I immediately ran down to squirt some pre-wash on it. But all that came out was air and a few spits of cleaner.
So I searched google with a vengeance. I found a recipe and decided to give it a shot. I mixed it up in the empty pre-wash bottle, sprayed it all over my ruined sheets, scrubbed the stain with a brush, soaked it in cold water for a bit and then ran it through the washer.
And I’m happy to say that my Egytion Cotton Sheets will live to see another day…and so will the kid that bled all over them.
