Seeing Red..."the laundry adventure"

Some lessons just have to be learned the hard way. Unfortunately, the hard way frequently ends up costing lost of moolah. Mom's moolah, to be exact.

We're heading out of town for a short vacation tomorrow, so in preparation my girls are in a rush to get all of their laundry done. Gotta looks cute, you know. I have a daughter that likes to get everything done at once. I mean, why do three loads of laundry if one big batch will fit in the new front loading washer, right?
I'll tell you's because of articles of clothing like that perky pink skirt! I don't think I have to tell you what happened. You're probably smart enough to figure it out just by looking at the picture. What you don't see is all of the other clothing that was only slightly damaged, several that were purchased within the past two weeks and have only been worn once. I made three different attempts at removing the pink, but with little luck.

So my question you think my daughter will be able to start a new trend wearing pink tie dyed jeans? Probably not. But I bet it's the last time she mixes her "reds" with her other laundry. Fortunately, she's a pretty quick learner!


  1. Really, I'm not laughing at you, but with you. My dh did something similar with a pair of tie-dyed socks and my dd's laundry. I know he was being helpful -- but some things were just never the same!

  2. LOL, I guess she have learned from this. There is one way to save it. Try to wash it againg and then add a sheet of colour catcher with it. I have saved clothes being dyed like this.

  3. Good thing none of her brother's clothes were in that load! Boys don't like wearing pink much. Guess how I know?! LOL!
