Last night while I was chatting with a neighbor we started discussing laundry.
Boring. I know.
However, we were talking about whites (I hate the dreaded whites) and I mentioned that my hubby's whites could really use some extra love - and she told me "Just use a degreaser."
A degreaser? I was thinking that I would need to go out and rummage through home depot looking for a big ole' bucket of something or other to add to my laundry - until she said
"Just use Dawn!"
Duh. Amanda. You have it under your sink. You use it on all your dishes and they are all grease free. And it is simply fabulous!
Of course I did have images of my washing machine bubbling over...
Eager to try it out - I put in a load of whites last night - added detergent, Clorox and a double swirl of Dawn and what do you know - it worked! They look a little better already! After a couple more go arounds in my washer they should be in good shape! You can also use dawn to clean out any black gunk you may have in your washing machine - just run an empty cycle with hot water and some Dawn.
I also learned that you can use Dawn to make an ice pack! Just fill a sandwich bag halfway, double bag it and freeze. The Dawn will get really cold but won't entirely freeze making it super easy to bend and fold over those achy joints. Brilliant!
So go do yourself some whites, make some emergency ice packs, have a coke and don't forget to email me about the Fall Exchange! I would love to see you all there. I am getting more and more excited as more people enter!
ps. Dawn did not pay me anything to say all that awesome stuff -
I just really love them!
