🌲✨ When you've been scrubbing vintage all day, but u still have a contingency plan of writing "small light spot, just there, hardly visible" on the listing just in case, and your customer will never know about all that hard work for their pristine vintage garment. So that's why I get to tell YOU GUYS! 😂 Seriously tho, the things we do for vintage! 😍😊💕 Real talk though, I'm only doing this laundry because we had some pipes burst, or maybe there was a leak, I'm not sure which was first, so my whole office turned into a soppy dump. So what do I do to gain some control over my environment again? Drag the IKEA bag o' dirty vintage out and scrub! I didn't need that old rug anyway 😂 (no inventory was harmed though!! could have been SO much worse!)
Honestly though, this Amodex is the REAL MVP tonight. This stain is a toughie anyhow, but the rest are SO ✨Shiny✨ Get ya some. ...
I use this product regularly and LOVE it. Thought I'd share the history behind it. Fels-Naptha is an American brand of bar laundry soap used for pre-treating stains on clothing and formerly as an effective home remedy for exposure to poison ivy and other skin irritants. Fels-Naptha is manufactured by and is a trademark of the Dial Corporation, a subsidiary of Henkel. The soap was originally created around 1893 by Fels and Co. and was the first soap to include naphtha. The inclusion of naphtha made the soap very effective for cleaning laundry and dissolving the contagious oil of poison ivy, but was removed as a cancer risk. #felsnaptha#vintagelaundry#vintagehome#vintagelifestyle
|when you visit a dhobi you understand from where JKRowllling got inspired. In India, dhobis are places where people drop off their dirty clothes. People who work there do the lundry, dry the clothes in open-air and do the ironing. Despite the amount of shirts, sarees and trousers they clean, clothes are always given back to the owners with no mistake|
The only time I really do love doing laundry: vintage laundry day! I got these four true vintage sacks from my Finnish friend @vintagemimosa . (Thank you for finding always such treasures!) They probably were used as covers for mattresses for children and are made of a very narrow fabric in the loveliest print. The typical 1940s colours are still vibrant! These will, once opened, make an amazing dress. Or two blouses. #vintagemom#vintagesewing#vintagefabric#vintagelaundry#1940s
I know this just looks like a white blob in soapy water, but that's a vast improvement over yesterday! Yesterday is was a yellow blob in soapy water. This 1940s cotton eyelet dress is on its way to being crisp, bright white again! Yay!
