Interesting thing about blood. Did you know that you can get your OWN blood out of clothes using your saliva? The two are linked, via your DNA. You can not suck anyone ELSE'S blood out of a shirt, or a sofa, or anything. But you CAN, with enough determination, suck out your own with your saliva.

I found that out when I had a massive nosebleed on my futon a year ago. And though it was a little stomach-churning, I will be damned if it didn't work.


lol... OMG!!!  That is detemination I must say.

The Indigenous peoples of both our fine lands may have something to say about that. The Brits bought nothing but mysery.  ;)
And, rumour has it they don't like soap much, so don't ask them for any tips about getting stains out.
Thankfully, black is back in a big way in newtown so white is a no no in my cupboard these days.
Minus the attack, there is history no matter where you go.  My college professor once made the comment that there was no history in North America, aka United States, until after the Europeans arrived.  I had to pointedly remind him of the Aztecs, The American Indians, Eskimos, and other Natives of the lands and he had to rethink his statement.  I guess it is easy to forget the people whose history has been erased, rewritten and belittled.

Fearless.....you drive on the same side of the road as the UK does, also your country stole the land from the natives, and caused as much pain & misery as other countries have done, so what makes you any different than anyone else.... and to say that the UK doesn't use any SOAP is just plain SILLY :D

Well, in truth, soap and bathing is a recent last 100 years event.  It not like everyone in the world took a bath once a day, much less once a week, but I guess it was meant as a joke.  I heard said that there would be special ceremonies for the king for him to disrobe and take a bath once a year back when baths were unheard of.  If the king needed a bath imagine his subjects.  And as to stolen lands and pain & misery to the natives, to the victor the spoils, the loser the toils.

There is a rule that undershirts must be white?  Hubby doesn't own a white one.  Black, Red, Green. Blue, Yellow, yes..... White No. And the colorful underpants we see hanging out of guys britches now days when they have their shirts off......  ::)I must know these rules. Conformity and Uniformity  is mandatory. We must be assimilated.

I've got some of my grandmother's  embroidered napkins that I think I'll try this on. I've been afraid to bleach them. They have darkened places on them from being folded in a drawer for 50 years and I would love to use them.

Granny, certainly don't bleach the old linens!  Try different soaps, soaking, and the sun.

Yez,  that is why I never have. I am afraid that bleach would make them fall apart. Each one is embroidered with a different design  for each family member and they would be irreplaceable.  I have two friends that always dress in the most blinding white athletic tee shirts and it is not just their dark skin that makes them look so white. I just don't get it how their tees have always looked brand spankin new. >:( I really mean NEW.

No it is not odd to hand wash your underware!  :) It is only odd when you don't wash them at all and just turn them inside out every other day :D

Good morrow to all and I hope you will have a great day.  Well, I finally broke down and brought bleach to whiten my whites and the results were fantastic.  I did not realize that my white tees were yellowing until after the bleaching process.  I had a tee shirt that I have forgotten to put in the wash, I just poured some bleach in a bucket with water and let it soak for a few minutes, and the spots on it just went away.  Wow...  Even my white tube socks got brighter.  I guess I gotten out of the habit of using bleach for I thought I was being environmentally safe but the bleach worked.

Now how do I get the white spots off my black jeans?  They are old so it not a big thing from me.

I was afraid of that, but luckily they are old and not new jeans.  It seems everytime I handle bleach I get the urge to wear black jeans.  Go figure...

Do it naked in your bathroom.  After you soak your stuff, you can use the bleach water to wash your tub and tile.  More bang for the bother of using bleach.  Wear gloves and open the window.

Get some RIT  dye and re dye the black jeans. Hubby was alway too tight to buy new jeans ,  but would spend a buck and a quarter once in a while and dye his to get the color back.  Just be sure and run your washer an empty cycle after you dye anything or the residual color will taint  your next load.  do not intend to discuss tainted loads. ::)

[/quote]Any reason to be naked is a good reason.  What I did with the bleach in the bucket was to leave it there in the bathroom and let it sanitize the area, so when I got home there was neither bleach smell nor any other odor.  The bathroom window is always left open because I love fresh air in the apartment.  I also took the left over bleach and poured it into the toilet and scrubbed it clean, which is an added bonus.  But thanks for the advice.  Next time I will get bear ass naked and do my thing.
