“Oh, your Mom’s a brave mom” a passerby said to Olivia when we showed up for a barbecue at the park with a white dress on Olivia. Pulling it from her closet before we were ready to leave, I wasn’t ready for another fight about finding shorts and a tank top – the girl wants to wear a dress everywhere we go.
I know what you’re thinking because I thought it too. Dirt, ketchup, juice boxes, grass. I ran down the list of things that she was probably going to get on the pretty dress I bought for a photo session earlier that month and channeled Jamie, as I reminded myself she loved it and clothes were supposed to be worn.
Clothes are supposed to be worn.
That doesn’t mean that I don’t have tricks up my sleeve to get rid of those stains. Every day you will find those light colored denim shorts with sand and dirt all over the back or a white tank top that matches everything soaking away in the sink, being pre-treated with Resolve to get rid of those stains.
If you’ve got kids, and they’ve got white in their closet, you’re going to want to give Resolve Gold a try. The powerful combination of powder and water to form a paste can get rid of those ground-in stains, and the gel is a convenient way to use an in-wash treatment to achieve whites that are 60% whiter.
Tip: For the tough stains, like the sand that seems to discolor light colored bathing suits that have been sitting in the sand building sand castles all day, I like to use it as a pre-treatment in the sink, before the wash. Many stains will disappear before your eyes, in as short as thirty seconds.
Resolve Gold tackles blueberries, grass, grape juice –and all of the tough stains you’re sure have ruined your favorite white sleeveless top.
I tried Resolve Gold Liquid on a white-ish coloured dress with weaving on the top, after Olivia wore it for the first time to the barbecue and came home with ketchup-hand prints, sand from the park and dirt from playing all evening along. The back of the dress was covered in dirt – I wasn’t sure it was actually going to come out.
It was a busy evening, I didn’t have the time to pre-treat. The dirt was pretty fresh, so I thought I would give it a go. Into the washer went the dress with some swimsuits and shorts, all light colored. Hanging it to dry, the stains were gone. The white swimsuits I threw in there? They were noticeably cleaner looking, or brighter, too.
As I was hanging everything to dry, I made a note to grab another bottle the next time we were shopping – because I’m not brave, I’ve got help.
