Did you know?

OK, Hudson LOVES berries...almost any type, but especially blackberries with raspberries coming in a close second. I can't even let him see berries when he is eating or he won't eat anything else. So most nights after he is done with his dinner, I will pull out a bowl of berries and he goes to town. I normally take off his shirt because they make such a mess...




Well, Sunday night we decided just to feed him his berries with a fork. Somehow he STILL ended up with berries on his shirt...a BIG purple blotch on his cream shirt. So while Kelly gave him a bath, I tried everything to get the stains out. I used everything I could think of and they looked like they were there for good. I decided to put the shirt in the washing machine thinking that would get it out since nothing else was working. No luck! I looked online and kept seeing the same thing for berry stains...pour almost boiling water on it and will wash away. I was thinking to myself that there was NO WAY that was going to work, but decided to give it a try and guess what...IT WORKED!! Isn't that the craziest thing ever? So, I just knew I needed to blog about it so all of you mommas out there would know the berry removal from clothes trick!
