The lovely and generous Jen Fulwiler sent me this Camelbak when I was almost-bedresting it up and needed to consume obnoxious quantities of water on the daily. I used it, then I stopped using it as much for a while because I'm dumb, and now I'm back to using it as part of my super-duper-get-back-in-shape-by-Christmas plan and am feeling like it is my secret slimdown weapon or something.
Is this like the ultimate housewife post or what, man? Cooking, cleaning, drinking water to slim down....oh my gosh I'm so lame.
Whatevs. So I told you about Folex the other week, which I heart for carpets and upholstery and sometimes even for clothes. But you know, I don't think it would work for dried grass stains on pants and shorts. For that (and other things) I've discovered Fels Naptha soap.
I bought a bunch of bars back when I was making our own laundry soap (which I had to scrap because Mary had a rashy reaction to A&H Washing Soda and the HE washing machine didn't like too much shredded Fels Naptha) so now I have it handy for dried clothing stains. I just wet the fabric and/or the end of the bar of soap, and rub the bar straight onto the fabric as if it's....like....deoderant or something. Throw it in the wash as usual and VOILA. Stain gone.
disclaimer: do not use on berry stains. It does something weird. I don't get it, but it's true!
