Laundry Warfare

Ruined! All my beautiful white dress shirts have been ruined! I pulled them out of the laundry to find blotches all over them -all because of a brown shirt that I had so carelessly thrown in. How am I to look professional in them now? I look like I've been scuba-diving in sewage!!

I scrubbed them with Didi Seven and a toothbrush. They turned from dark brown to orangish-yellow and now they are back in the laundry with bleach. I can only hope that they can return to their former selves but the prognosis does not look good. I had already thrown them into the dryer without noticing. I fear it's too late. The stains have already set!

Luckily the offending spots are mostly in places where they can be covered by my suit jacket but the whole affair is still so tragic that I am contemplating hanging myself on the line. I should have done so to the clothes in the first place then at least I could have noticed something sooner and acted. I have made a big mistake. I should never have mixed colours. Perhaps with people it works but with clothes, never. It's a case of simple segregation. How foolish I've been!!

You can always try those RIT dyes you can by at a drug store or your equivalent of a Target. Sorry to hear about the laundry accident. Was the brown shirt new? Most clothes don't run anymore except for brand new shirts sometimes.

AG is right on: if the shirts are older, you can mix them. Also, if you're mixing colours, always wash in cold water.

I am truly dispointed in Didi Seven. I was convinced that it was the stain-removing master. After investing so much of my time in watching all those late-night infomercials...
