Dumbass strikes again!

Lately, I have been feeling like Super Housewife. I bake! I crochet! I sew! Frankly, I was getting a little too cocky. Yesterday I was knocked down a notch. Much to my dismay, I realized that I am still a jackass.

I washed and dried a crayon in the laundry. I have ruined every article of clothing my children own.

Any advice?

i did that in purple! maybe try oxiclean...i think i am going to shoot for that.

Use: 2c. tide, 1c. Oxiclean, 1/2c 20 Mule team Borax, 1c. shout, 1c. White vinegar

Let the clothes soak overnight and stains will be gone. Then wash in regular detergent to get rid of vinegar smell.

If the crayon is melted in your dryer, you can use a brillo pad on the drum.

I think the green is quite attractive! Do it again and call it tie-dye!

ugh. I did the same thing but with my pen. Oxiclean might work....but to get it out of the dryer, do a 1/2 beach and 1/2 water mixture and soak an old towel in it, then run the dryer on high with the (very)wet towel in it. That took all the pen marks off of my dryer.

I did this once and researched a way to get them clean! It worked well and I got most of the crap out... hang on I'll go get my printout from the laundry room!
