Whiter than White!

'Oh, she's forgotten an image today for her post,' some of you might be thinking.  Nope, there is one that's called white.jpg.if anyone wants to pop over to the left of this text and investigate. It'll have to serve as the illustration for today's rather seasonal handy hint from Mama Lovelygrey as I forgot to take before and after shots to demonstrate its effectiveness.

Suppose you're a bit of a klutz like me and stains attracts themself to your clothing as if you were a great big dirt magnet.  Don't reach for those harsh chemical cleaners, just wash the garment in the normal way and then stick it out in the sun.

I've done this with a white T-shirt with a stubborn red wine stain.  Five days later and there's no trace of it. A previously unwearable piece of clothing is now as good as new.  The secret of this nifty trick is that the high energy photons in the u-v band break down the molecules that are the building blocks of colour.  Try it and see.   It's the perfect excuse to crack open a bottle of Cabernet.  Just be careful that you don't use too much for experimental purposes when  splashing it down yourself!


  1. Thanks for that reminder; juice stained tea shirt left on line!
