I Will Never Fear White Again!

Ok, I'll admit I am as much a drama queen as Scarlett, but this is how I feel about white.

I love white.

It's pure, clean, untouched and had no business in my house with my tribe.

Last year when I redid the bathroom, I bougtht white towels against my better judgement. In two months time they were ugly orange with tan stripes. Not really what I had in mind. I thought of dying everything in the house black. I even went as far as to take the whites up to the laundromat. Everything still was orange.

Now.... and my whites are much brighter. I know, I know, you have heard this all. I have got proof now though.

Look at those bad boys! That is only after 1 washing! The one on the left is before and the one on the right after. 3 cheers for iron out!

I no longer cringe when opening the dishwasher after running it. No gritty feel that you have to try to rinse off. No orange dishwasher. No orange dishes!

The one on the left is just out of the dishwasher. The one on the right is how they usually look. The glasses are clear and clean. No spots! Woo hoo lemon shine!

As for the crappy pics, I took them with my phone. It was before I got my new camera.

Now the the dishes are clean and the laundry done, I feel like sipping a mint julep on the porch pretending like I am at Tara.

Ok, that evidence is better than a TV commercial! I agree with the white towels and yet look at what it did. Fantastic!

Hi Maggie,
I LOVE sound like an advert. Iron out and Lemon Shine should pay you for your enthusiasm over their products !! I wish that we had them over here. I have white towels and I have to wash them so often but, they don't look as snowy white as when I first bought them. I will have to investigate the supermarket shelves to see if we have an equivalent.
Wiahing you and your family a wonderfil 2011 filled with joy, happiness and many special moments. Thanks so much for all of your lovely comments and support in 2010.Here's to another year of blogging friendship. Lots of love. XXXX

Look at those snow white towels and clean, clear glasses. We had a terrible time with iron in our water and finally broke down and bought a water softener and use the salt tablets for iron. What a lifesaver and our water is so soft we almost slip in the tub....loveit

I think they should pay you for this post! I swear by iron out and borax!
Just read your last post -- you are a riot. Guess what I got? The camera for my birthday and the super duper zoom lens for Christmas! You are going to LOVE that camera. I sleep with mine. :)
Your daughter is a cutie patootie.
