    Default Discovery! For Cleaning Gross Elastic Straps

    So the pretty black and white stripes on my Equifit T-boots were starting to look very dingy. I've tried the traditional dawn soap on them before and they came out ok. So today I tried a little something different and it worked AMAZING! --Lestoil.

    It cleaned them up so easy and brightened the white so that it looked brand new! I just used a tooth brush and then rinsed afterward. No affect to the leather of the boot and the elastic looks wonderful.

    I just thought I'd share in my discovery Now to clean up my girth!

    Not saying I have firsthand experience or anything but Lestoyl also gets melted-on lipstick out of lovely expensive breeches. Spot clean with toothbrush and rewash as normal.

    And always check your pockets before washing clothes and never trust the boyfriend to do the laundry.

    Better to inform the boyfriend that he had better learn to do laundry right.

    Once boyfriends figure out that screwing up domestic chores gets them out of doing domestic chores, you're sunk.
