Stain remover to the rescue

So, it never fails. When I wear a white shirt, I might as well be holding a target for any and all food to find it's way to the shirt. Thursday was no exception. On the way to work I ate a English muffin with my homemade Rasberry/Marionberry jam on it. Little did I know that a blob of jam fell on my shirt right by the seatbelt. I looked down and saw that the seatbelt had then proceeded to smear the jam all over my white shirt. Almost at work..what to do? I pulled out my trusty Tide stain stick. No help.

Luckily there is a Thriftway on my way to work that opens at 6am. I stopped in and bought this little thing

I sprayed it on and then took off to work thinking that I could take the shirt off in the bathroom at work and do my best to clean it. Well, I got there and started checking my emails. About an hour later I looked down and to my great surprise, all the jam had magically disappeared. It just ate it right up.

I highly recommend this product. Get some, put it in your purse and just wait for the miracles to happen.

**On a side note, we're have a fun summer and it's flying by. Heading to the beach this weekend to celebrate my sweet honey's birthday.**

I'm going to buy one of those--I'm famous for missing my mouth--AND IT'S A BIG MOUTH ; )

Happy Birthday to your hubby.

Hmm... this just showed up in my reader too. That's weird...

Thanks for the heads up on this! I'm always spilling stuff and making a mess and on top of that? I have kids. It's like a double whammy for my clothes ;)

Have a great time at the beach!

Randy makes fun of me because I ALWAYS spill on myself! I need that oxyclean spray. I have a big bottle of it, but need the travel size. Glad you had fun at the beach.
