The morning was going well. Very well. I didn't have any specific plans for the day....no appointments, no pressing errands, no immediate needs....just a day to catch up and clean up and I REALLY wanted to get a workout in.
I decided, first, to fold a bit of laundry. I mean, Roberto has become the major laundry folder in our home as of late (because he's awesome) and I usually leave it for him. But...I wanted to be "nice" and get a head start on it.
What the heck? At first I was really confused. Then after a little time and investigation on my part, I discovered the culprit. Crayon. BLACK CRAYON! Someone must have had one in their pocket. And you know what...I wish I could blame it all on "them"....but I can't....because it's my job to check the pockets before I launder the clothes, right?
The articles above are just a few of the casualties.
The whole entire load is COVERED and you know what....we're not a small family....and we don't have small appliances. When we purchased our washer and dryer we purchased the LARGEST they carried. They hold a lot of clothes at one time....and we never run a less than packed load. Yeah...lots of clothes....*sigh*
I panicked at first...then called my mom...then searched the web...then ran to the store...and now have spent the better part of my day experimenting with different methods of getting crayon out of clothing (and the dryer drum as well).
On the bright side....at least I can blog about it.
Wish me luck.
I've got a long (and scary) way to go. And you know what...I could use your help.
Got any ideas and/or experience on the subject. Wanna share?
