Aggravated Mayhem in the Laundry

Monday, August 2, 2010

Switzerland wants to thank you for all of your birthday wishes and says she had an amazing celebration despite the rain!
No really...swiss people set off their fireworks despite the downpour, it was pretty fun!
We watched most of the shows from the dryness of our balcony - but I got it in my head to try to go look at this other show happening....which leads me to...THE SHIRT.
The most annoying shirt in the WORLD.
I bought a blue sweatshirt similar to the one above from H&M. no big deal. Threw in the laundry...BIG DEAL. Huge deal because the renegade shirt turned 90% of my coloreds BLUE.
Then today Mark decided to do laundry and disregard my neat piles...and the coloreds that were turned blue turned EVEN MORE coloreds blue. So now, I'm not kidding you, at least 70% of my laundry has a blue tint to it now.
So then tonight I'm wearing a white dress. So then I decide I need to go ride my bike in the pouring rain to see a particular firework show and guess what I'm wearing over the white dress.
The blue shirt.
Guess what color dress I have now?
Thank you...thank you very much H&M.
So you're probably like, why don't you throw the blue things away?
But the SHIRT IS SO COMFORTABLE AND WARM!
and if I threw everything away there goes 90% of my underthings!
It's complete aggravated mayhem!

I'm sorry...I just wasted 4 min. of your time. now carry on!

Gah, hate it when that happens! This summer I tried washing all my bf's whites with a green piece of clothing I was sure would not color off anymore seeing as it has been washed like a hundred times before. Yeah, well, turns out I was wrong and now all his whites have this lime green tint! Just lovely :)

daily mix LA said...

agreed! and that 4 minutes wasnt wasted! haha

CHANTELLE said...

awww, i hope it's not too bad! the jumper is super cool, looks like it pretty much goes with everything :)

this free bird said...

bahahahahaha!! i love it! okay not the blue sweatshirt bleeding a trail over everything it comes in contact with...but the aggravated mayhem! it's spread across the sea krystal!

gf you crack me up. but that had to be so frustrating. and today when i was driving down the street for some reason i pictured you on your bike with your white (at one point) dress and blue sweatshirt pedaling away in the rain - and suddenly i imagined you in the sound of music!!

anyway, random thoughts aside. i'm going to bed now.

this post has made my day!!

xoxo,

happy monday!

Ugh I hate laundry related mishaps! The worst is when you wash things that are dryclean only (in the hopes you can save the money) only for the colour to run through the silk! ahh

Ohhh the aggravated mayhem! I had a similar incident in college involving a new navy shirt and the fact that I'd never done laundry before. My Mom had to drive down and help me fix my clothes. It wasn't that fun. You like blue, right? :)

gleenn said...

I think I would love to wear that sweatshirt when I go to bed and honey turns the AC too down. :)

pixelhazard said...

Oh no! I hope you like blue

Ugh! How frustrating! Next time you wash it, use one of those color-catching sheets (http://www.epinions.com/content_136822754948), hopefully that saves the next load of laundry.

Aggravated mayhem is taking over the world.

Leia said...

I can totally understand this! I've had similar frustrating laundry ordeals!

andrea said...

oh no! that's aweful! is there any way you can fix it? bleach for colors? just rewashing? i hope you don't have to end up throwing everything away!!

The Zhush said...

There was a time where everything I owned was pink..ugh! :)

Gina said...

i absolutely hate that, i recently somehow left a red pen in a pocket and ruined a few new shirts & my bfs fave white tshirt

Stacey said...

So sorry, but i can't help but smile at that picture you created in my mind with you on your bike in the rain in your once white dress:-).

Erica said...

Oh, no!!!! I hate when that happens ; (

Fashion Butter said...

Oh no! You post made me chuckle though. : )

Purses Pastries Etc... said...

Oh, NO!! But I can totally commiserate with you -- I recently managed to somehow let a pink, no, a FUSCHIA sock get picked up amidst a pile of whites and... well... I now have quite a few light pink t-shirts :/

Vitori Thinks said...

Oh my!!! I've had my own bad laundry story but I was able to do something about it before it dispersed its color to my other white clothes... hahaha!!! this post was funny and i think you did not waste my 4 minutes of reading... because i had a good read... =)

christa said...

Oh no! Better wash that guy by himself from now on!

Can you bleach any of the once-white things??

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Ugh I HATE that, no good at all!

à la Modest said...

OH MY GOSH! That happened to me with a RED shirt!!! Stained everything red. The worst part was that there were some clothes that weren't even mine. Just great. I didn't want to admit it at first because I was newly married, and I just ended up looking like a real "noob" of a housewife. Most clothes come with instructions on how to wash them (tumble-dry, low, etc.). The trouble is that we don't always have the time to check for these things, so things like these are unavoidable. It happens, and you're not the only one :)

Hollie said...

oh my, how annoying! You could try washing it alone a few times in hot water?

Audrey Allure said...

Oh man, I hate when that happens! I guess next time, hand wash that sweater alone? lol Sorry about your other things, I'm sure it'll all fade out soon.

And no, I won't be in my friend's dance group lol I didn't audition, I was just there watching & hanging out. :)

Josie said...

Oh, I'm so sorry, dear! I'd never have expected that such a washed-out shade would cause such trouble! I bet the tint will fade soon, though!

It is a cute shirt though, I don't blame you. 90's of my and my Husband's underthings are pink from our red kitchen rug. Which was hidden in our washing machine under a towel so I didn't know it was in there.

The Swiss are just like Washingtonians. The 4th of July it always rains, but we still carry one!

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

Haha

I needed a good laugh on a Monday, Thanks.

I would love to see pictures of you in your blue wardrobe. haha

Tayebug said...

Oh, how I hate when that happens. Especially when I love the item!!

Paislea Elyse said...

So sorry - it is an absolute horror when some of your favourite clothes are ruined due to one disaster.

HAppy MOndAY!
(I really hate when that happens normally its my husbands pens from work....argh!)

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

d'oh! that's the worst!!

i'm pretty obsesive about dividing up my laundry by colors. as in, reds go with reds, blues go with blues, yellows...etc etc etc. it takes me forever to do laundry, drives my hubbers crazy, and is really pretty silly. :P

ps - thank you for your very sweet comment on my post. :)

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Haha- Only like one minute...
I saw your twitter yesterday re: the white dress- I felt bad for you then and feel bad for you now!

Silly shirt.

Mia Delessi said...

I know how you feel. I felt the same way when I my pink scarf turned my white clothes into pink, I felt to bad!

Reina said...

oh no, it was more like 30 seconds, but really you didnt, i love reading little stories like this because it makes me smile (even if its at your expense...sorry). That sucks about your clothes.
here's a little tip about new clothes that you want to wash.
The first time you wash it, wash it alone. my mother always does

Stephany said...

Oh, no, that really sucks! I've never had a different colored piece of clothing turn my clothes a different color but I imagine it could be VERY FRUSTRATING!

She Wore It Well said...

I think the blue shirt must now be worn only with navy things, bummer :(

A few years back, B washed all of our white stuff with his favourite red jumper, sooooooooooooooo, the white stuff was pink and his favourite red jumper faded!

OOOOOOOOOOOPS
