How many things have you lost or had changed identity due to an oops by a DG?
I cannot tell you how many kelims and other precious colourful things I’ve lost because DG decided to wash it in warm water and the end result was a blend of all the colours it used to be.
Then there’s the JIK – my DG loves Jik – everything gets Jik-ed which is as I taught her but only the whites… not the colours – they get Vanish – Vanish is interchangeable, Jik aint.
But I must admit the disasters has been interesting topics of conversations. Nothing like trying to explain to a dinner guest (only the good friends, mind) why their serviette is matching in design to all the others but not colour. Or why only their bit of the tablecloth has a bit of a tie-dyed effect! When I think back I smile at all the disasters but I certainly wasn’t smiling when it happened!
