Day 10 – October 2012: Buy Nothing New Month

Recycling my wardrobe – Day 10:

I woke up this morning with a spring in my step – maybe it was that nice 3 mile run I went on or maybe it’s because life is pretty darn good right now. Any how, my chipper attitude this morning warranted a chipper outfit. Hence, the bold colors and print in this Calvin Klein dress. I also knew that this was probably going to be the last possible week to wear this dress before Fall officially took nest. I had only worn this dress once this summer. On a date I had been on a couple months ago I somehow managed to splatter hot sauce all over it – hmmm, wonder why it didn’t work out with the guy? (the splatter of sauce gave Abstract Expressionism a whole new meaning) I swear I have good table manners, but when it comes to hot sauce/salsa I’m doomed. Well, I finally got around to getting the stains out last week and was happy that the dress was able to make one more appearance before the weather turns cold.

Tip: I have learned through my many salsa spillages that the best product to get my stains out is Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush. It has a built in brush allowing you to gently work the gel into the stain. I let it set in for a few days (sometimes a couple weeks; don’t worry, it’s ok to do that)  then wash and Ta Da! My stains are gone. Check it out:
