Well, I do. I hate it, but there it is. Same thing applies to t-shirts with the side-seams that twist. Argh.
Y'all can do as you like with your own sheets in your own houses, but this is how we do it in mine.
Oh, you didn't mention T-Shirts did you?
Early in my marriage, my husband walked into the room holding one of his work t-shirts in his hand. "Honey" he says to me "you missed a spot on this t-shirt".
"A spot? What spot?" I ask.
With great aplomb, my husband held the T-shirt before my eyes and said "This one right here".
"Hold it up to the light, honey...I can't see it"
"Are you blind? Do you need a cane to walk or what? It's right here, see it?"
I saw it then. Looked like a little grease spot, maybe 1/8 of an inch circumference.
I said "sorry that didn't come out, but I'm sure no one will notice"
Not good enough for my beloved, he pursues the matter.
"Did you use Zout?" ( a pre-treater)
"Well, no. It IS a work shirt right? Don't you have, like, one thousand of them?"
There is a lot of back and forth about stains and pre-treating. About looking your best regardless of how you are dressed. About, it's just a damn t-shirt, throw it away if there is a spot.
Really. Is a 7 dollar T worth my time to pre treat..not just pre-treat, but use a laundry brush to scrub the stain?
I think not.
"Honey" I said. " I am not going to pretreat a dang T-shirt. My standards tell me it is not worth the effort, if yours say otherwise then pre treat to your hearts content."
At that time I wished my husbands name was Al, because "Anal Al" has such a nice ring to it.
And yes, he does pre treat his own t shirts.
