Fighting White: Bleach Mission!

Spent most of yesterday afternoon consumed in an unravelling saga of laundry...

I had my white clinic jacket hanging next to an indian dyed singlet...a dark GREEN indian dyed singlet. So the inevitable happened...green dye spots-arghhh!

I tried Napisan....faded but still obvious green spots!

I cut to the chase...Need Bleach!! Had none...Quick emergency dash to the supermarket. Bought super heavy duty gloves(that was a good call).

Okay, so white now, in the washing machine. As time was ticking down I hung it near the balcony door where there was more wind...

Meanwhile Miss Multitasking Extraordinaire(Rare Days only) was cooking up a storm in the kitchen simultaneously making a huge pot of Malaysian curry to last 2 weeks and then a pot of udon soup noodles for dinner. Then my intuition sensed, all was not well...

I went to check on my drying jacket...Yikes! Dusty black spots all over one side where it had touched the dirty flyscreen!

MAN. Into the washing machine again...I was careful to set the spin speed to highest RPM(1200).

In any case, at 1am I think it will be ready in time (fingers crossed).

I really don't understand why people insist on WHITE jackets :p

I don't think you should eat something that's been in the fridge two weeks - but maybe you know better than I. =)
