Throughout the years I have suffered the loss of beloved pieces in my wardrobe to stubborn stains that seem to pop out of nowhere. The most tragic spill I endured was not even my fault, which makes it even more obnoxious to relive. It was freshman year, I had just received a two piece set from the Avril Lavigne collection at Kohl’s in collaboration with Alice and Wonderland. Of course, it was a white set with thin black stripes, chains on the pocket, and suspender shorts too. We did not even make it through first period together before the girl behind me somehow managed to spill her hot tea all over me, ruining the set forever. The rest of the day I sported the upmost fashionable grey and black p.e. uniform. After trying multiple stain removers, it was time to lay the best two set piece to rest.
Yes, my story is a bit dramatic but there is nothing worse than getting a stain and knowing your clothing item is forever gone, thrown into the Saturday rag pile. Recently I received a stain at work on a sweater but luckily a coworker had supplies on hand. First, I tried the famous Tide to Go stick, which lightened the stain but it was still visible. Next, I was urged to try Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover which did the trick after it was run through the washing machine.
After having success with Grandma’s Secret Spot Remover, I was curious if it would work on stains I previously received from early in the week to the month prior. The store clerk even raved about the products success on set in stains, it seemed like I hit the holy grail of stain removers. Right there I purchased two of Grandma’s stain remover products with a smug smile on my face. I thought if this thing truly worked then I would never have to live in fear of putting my most beloved pieces at risk again.
