I have a favorite skirt that’s brightly embroidered white linen.* I love wearing it, however I know as soon as I put it on, the odds of coffee being spilled by me or someone else and landing on my clothes are about 100%.
Today was no exception — and it wasn’t even me that spilled the coffee but some goon at Coffee Bean who was too busy trying to hit on the high school girls there to notice he was slopping on me until it was too late. I’d resigned myself to a day with a 3 inch long by one inch wide coffee stain down my front when help arrived.
Seems our office has these little towelettes called Portable Shout Wipes. They’re like the little wipes that you get with messy food except that they’re apparently for stain treatment. I’d seen commercials for them but didn’t believe it would really work. Let me just say they do. It’s not perfect, but after a few minutes use, my coffee stain has faded so much that really only I can see it.
This product could change my life. Really.
*Note: Please keep in mind I live in Santa Monica and work in Los Angeles. It’s freaking 85 degrees today here. Southern California definitely doesn’t follow tradition fashion rules about fall clothing and Labor Day.
