Last week we took a trip up to PA to visit our cousins. One night while we were there we had a cookout. I was going through the line and had just put on some mustard on my hot dog when all of a sudden my plate slipped off the counter and all the mustard on my hot dog went flying onto my new white shirt 🙁 It was easy to clean up my hot dog but almost impossible to get it off my shirt.
When we finally got home I tried spraying Pre-Spot on the mustard stain but it didn’t do very much good. So then I tried Sol-u-mel and it worked a little better. By this time I was getting rather discouraged. It wasn’t coming out! Then Mom remembered that once she got ink out of a blanket with toothpaste! So I decided to try it. I scrubbed the toothpaste on the stain and it worked better then anything we had tried yet. But it didn’t get it all the way out. We then checked on the internet and it suggested using Fantastik so we tried that and it worked really good. After this we threw it in the washing machine when it got out it was exactly how it was when it went in. So I thought that I’ll just have to make it a work shirt. But Mom had one more idea. She hung it out in the sun, and by the end of the day you could hardly tell I ever spilled mustard on it!
