Now, I completely realize I’m not doing her any favors by allowing her pickiness and strong personality to rule our household, but I don’t want to create stress and anxiety around food, nor do I want to argue 3 times a day, so it just seems easier to keep the peace and give her what she wants. And that’s cool. We all do things as parents we swore up and down we’d NEVER do. But this little parental failure of mine has totally backfired on me when it comes to packing school lunches. She won’t eat bread or pasta, and we recently discovered pancakes and waffles that aren’t warm and fresh from the toaster aren’t acceptable, so I’m often at a loss.
The good news is that peer pressure can sometimes be a good thing, and when one of my daughter’s BFFs showed up with mini croissants filled with blueberry jam for lunch last week, she went CRAZY. I don’t know if it was because the croissants were so adorable and small, or because she thought the jam looked sticky and messy and delicious, but she decided she needed to take the same thing for lunch the following day, and every single day for the rest of her life, and she DEVOURS them in one sitting. It’s pretty amazing. The only problem is that her white shirts are COVERED in blueberry jam when I pick her up each day.
At first, I was so excited she was finally eating bread products to care about the state of her clothes, but after a couple of days, I realized school lunches were going to become an expensive habit if I didn’t figure out how to get blueberry jam stains out of clothes. So when the awesome folks at Resolve® asked if I would try their Resolve® Gold In-Wash Laundry Stain Remover and share my best stain removal tip with all of you, I jumped at the chance because their products have, quite literally, saved my life.
Have you ever used Resolve® Gold In-Wash Laundry Stain Remover? It’s a super-boosted version of the other products Resolve® offers, and it’s so powerful that it removes some stains in just 30 seconds. I’m serious! For bad stains (like blueberry jam!), I use the powder product, and I always pre-treat and pre-soak, which takes me next to no time.
The product comes with an awesome scoop with raised bumps on the end that helps get the product into the stain, and all I do is mix 1/2 of a scoop of powder with 1/3 of a scoop of warm water to create a paste, rub the paste onto the stain using the bottom of the scoop, add the clothing to a small bucket of water and give it another scrub with my hands, and viola! The stain is gone!
As an added safeguard, I add another small scoop of the product to the soap drum of my washing machine before I add my clothes and detergent, and then wash my clothes as I normally would. The result is brighter and cleaner fabrics that look as good as new. It’s amazing!
