Since becoming a mother I have been introduced to the often frustrating world of stains in ways I hadn’t previously thought possible. I’m talking everything from newborn poonamis to food stains from top to bottom and everything in between. You know what I am talking about!
Then there are just the bad mom moments like the time I accidentally threw a soaking wet towel in amongst the rest of her laundry without letting it dry out first. Two days later when I went to do the laundry you can only imagine the mould covering most of the clothes in the basket. My only excuse is lack of sleep but let me tell you after that disaster I never made that mistake again!
Thankfully after giving the clothes a good soak in Resolve prior to washing and then drying out in the sun I was able to remove the stains from most of the items. What a relief that was!
Let me tell you though, If I never see a giant watermelon stain down a freshly laundered white shirt again it won’t be long enough! Unfortunately, since Keira is just a toddler I know I have many many more food stains to go and I am sure there are other nastier stains to contend with as she gets more and more independent!

That mold story is something we've all done as sleep deprived parents. It is crazy the things we never thought we'd do. Love the idea of a tip exchange - heading over to check it out.
