Bleachy Clean!

About the dumbest purchase I ever made was one of a dozen brilliant white dish washing cloths that I found in the Bay about a year ago.  Sigh...they looked SO pretty there in a wicker basket in the store display.  All thought of how quickly they would be stained by my husband's tea wipe ups and my liberal use of tomato sauces when cooking completely forgotten as I gazed on their immaculate beauty.  Sigh again.....

So, this afternoon, for the umpteenth time in the past year, I have just put them all into the washing machine after a nearly 5 hour soaking in a bowl of straight bleach!  At least this time I managed to transfer the bowl of bleachy water and cloths from the kitchen sink to the washing machine downstairs without slopping any of the bleach onto my clothing!  Sigh of relief!!

In another 45 minutes, when they come out of the dryer, the clothes will look clean and almost sparkly once again and that will be just fine until the first time or two that each of them is used to wipe up stains from countertops or food covered dishes.  

Next time I need to purchase dish washing cloths I will try to use my brain in choosing the colour!! 

Duh.......

Now, if the same trick will work on the 10 pair of pretty white tennis socks that just wooed my wallet, all will be well....
