I hate my H2O!

Blah! I hate my water. I am convinced that it hates me too. Only sometimes though. And.... it only directs it's vengeance at ME! I know it sounds crazy but it is the truth. I can do a load of whites and the ONLY thing that will get orangey blotchy rust stains on it is my stuff.

The reason for my rant is that I remembered I had 3 pairs of white drapes that I could hang in my bedroom. They had to be shortened though. So I went on the hunt for them. I finally found them and decided that I should wash them before I hung them up. Too lazy to run to the laundromat, too impatient to wait til 3 pm when my oldest gets home so she could keep an eye on the rugrat, I washed them myself. After the cycle was done, I pulled them out to find large orange streaks across them! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone have any handy dandy cures for rust stains on clothing?

did you try bleach or what about Oxy clean, the powder stuff?

I tried both of those. I even ran up and got a color stripper. The parts that are not streaked are nice and snowy white. Stupid well water. I so miss my city water!
