Freckles in April: Repaired!

Repaired!

Hand-me-down shirt, Skirt from a dress I cut up, thrifted belt, Steve Madden sandals

Out of everything in my repair pile this skirt was the most pressing to me. I LOVE this skirt and wear it constantly so when it got a big grease stain on the side from when I leaned into the car to put Baby 2 in his car seat I was devastated.

Fortunately, this woman from church has recently been preaching the gospel of Shout Advance Greasy Stain Remover (she reads my blog sometimes- hi Erin!!) so I ran and got myself some and lo, I have been converted and will now preach that gospel too. That shiz WORKS. Pulled the stain right out. It also saved an entire load of Aaron's clothes when he forgot to take his brand new totally full tube of chapstick out of the pocket of the jeans and it went through the dryer. Miracles, I tell you!

What'd you repair? Link up below and/or add it to the Flickr group!

  2. That's great! I love Shout so much because I'm constantly spilling stuff on my clothes and always need to remove a spot or two. (Sometimes more, ;))

  12. Yay for fixing favorite clothes! I've found that plain old dish soap works wonders on cooking oil stains. It was an epiphany I had one day when watching one of those Dawn commercials where they show its amazing grease cutting powers. I don't even use Dawn. I just buy the cheapest generic stuff, and I keep some in my laundry room. I squirt it on any grease spots, make sure they are well saturated, then toss them in the laundry like usual. It even works after they've been through the dryer, which is good since that's when I always notice them. Thankfully I haven't had the opportunity to try it on chapstick or motor grease, yet.
