Tuesday's Tip Jar

My tip is a little gross, but it works! I was inspired by Mimi over at He and Me + 3 to put up a stain removing tip.

If you get a blood stain on fabric, I always end up with marks on the legs of my pants when I shave, spit on it! Yep, you heard me, spit! Something about each persons unique enzymes, blah, blah (insert actual science stuff here.)

The only way it works is if the bleeder is also the spitter. My sons thought I was crazy the first time I told them to spit on their clothes, but now they just write if off as one of the ways I'm "different from other moms." I choose to take that as a compliment, by the way.

Very weird! I'll be interested to try it out! It's actually an interesting conversation topic too (for talking with people like my mom- who loves to hear anything about biology! :-)

No kidding? I will definitely remember this one. I'm always getting little spots on my knees on my pajamas from shaving - what can I say, I am a razor clutz! LOL!

Thanks for the tip!

Happy Tuesday!

Hmmmm...well, that is gross, so if the windex doesn't work...spit will perfect. no more blood stains! Yippeee!

Wow--that was a little unexpected. I'm curious to see if it works for me, but a little scared. Plus I don't like to spit ;-)
Thanks for the tip though!

Hi! Saw you on SITS and thought I'd pop by. Okay, yup, that's gross - but interesting.
Hydrogen Peroxide will also remove blood from fabric.
