The other day I was cleaning with a bleach based household cleaner
and did two stupid things.
1. I wore black.
2. I hugged the bottle to me when I was done (to carry it into another room).
Before I realized what I had done, a purplish mark had already appeared on my once black top.
The top was getting overwashed and dingy, but it was comfy and I liked it!
What to do to keep it out of the trash and sort of presentable still?
I had no RIT dye on hand, so I opted for the opposite remedy.
Acting quickly, I changed into some other shirt, grabbed a rubber doily from my china cabinet drawer, and headed outside to the glass topped table on our deck.
I arranged the doily on the front of the shirt and spritzed, spritzed, spritzed.
Didn't even rinse the top, but just threw it into the wash with a load of whites that needed a little bleach anyway, and voila!
A Nathalie original I would be proud to wear with artsy jewelry.
And when I am done with the shirt, I can salvage the prettiest part of the lace pattern and repurpose it.
Here is a detail.
Go bleach something!
