I am the baby of five kids so hand-me-down clothing was a staple in our closets. When I had Gemma, I lovingly washed and folded all of her outgrown clothing and placed the best pieces in bags to wait for her sister’s turn to wear them.
Now despite what one could very rightly assume from the current state of her bedroom, Gemma was a tidy little kid. Except for a few favourite pairs of sparkle shoes, all her delightful outfits were still picture perfect when she was ready for the next size up. That means that Clover’s closet is just overflowing with lovely things that I am delighted to see worn again. It is good that there are so many choices because Clover mysteriously stains clothing as soon as she puts it on. Seriously, I don’t know how she does it.
We are headed to Hawaii for a wedding and as soon as the save the date was issued, I knew the dress that Clover would wear. I bought this yellow Janie and Jack smocked frock for Gemma to wear in Virginia as we celebrated the twins’ first birthday.
Five years later and I pulled the pristine dress from storage and it looked as if I had just bought it. Clover was in love. She asked to wear it to a friend’s birthday party and in a momentary lapse of judgement, I agreed. She just looked so pretty. And it was a simple princess party.
WITH A FACE PAINTER.
Yet, yes. And as much as I tried to manage the situation, Clover got black face paint on the gorgeous yellow fabric. Right in the front of the dress. Of course she did. I washed the dress in cold water. I even treated it with stain remover, but as it hung on the line to dry, I could clearly see the remaining stain.
I heard about the Radiant Return experiment where two guys bought clothes, got dirty, washed the garments with Radiant and then returned to the stores to see if they could spot any difference from an unworn return. The guys are real best friends and they really did the experiments, washing the clothes with Radiant in their own home. Don’t worry, the store owners knew and were totally OK with the test, but the shop assistants had no idea! Their reactions are real too.
Check out this video where they fingerpaint with kindergarten kids! If Radiant could fix THAT, I was sure that Radiant could come to my hand-me-down rescue and return this sweet dress to its former glory in time for our Hawaiian adventure!
There are three new variations of Radiant and while I am excited to use the “No Sort” version as I run out of time to do carefully separated loads of laundry before we leave, I picked the “Brilliant Whites Sharper Colours” for this task. Laundered on the regular cycle and hung to dry, it was fixed. No, really. My very own product demonstration in my own home. I had to share it with someone other than the dog!
Radiant returned my favourite dress to picture perfect!
