This happened to me with an all white load of sheets and pillowcases. It was the first time they had been washed as I had just bought them. I put in the usual amount of detergent and some Clorox. And there they were ... odd yellow stains. I couldn't figure it out until ...Eureka! The little labels on the sheets and towels were sort of rust color. I cut off the labels and rewashed using the soak cycle in addition to the wash cycle. I used detergent and more Clorox. Stains gone. But it is interesting that no warning was included with these sheets which were fairly pricey to buy. Now I cut the label off anything white before ever using the items. The soak cycle is important. I turned the knob to the soak cycle after the first one had almost ended so that the soak cycle would be longer than usual. If you have to use a commercial laundry machine I would soak the stains out in the sink first. I hope this is what your problem was.

Do not...I repeat...DO NOT store a wedding dress in plastic! Plastic traps moisture, and the material can't breathe, and that only promotes mold and mildew. You can store it in a box, made of acid-free materials. You should be able to get one from the bridal store, or you can order them online. Gowns with sheer bodices, heavily beaded areas, knitted or bias-cut sections and heavy skirts or trains should be stored horizontally to minimize the effect of gravity. Vertical storage minimizes wrinkling, creasing and stacking. Horizontal storage: You will need new, white tissue paper and a sturdy box large enough so the gown will require few folds and deep enough to prevent crushing the gown. Avoid brown cardboard boxes because they may quickly give off acids which are particularly harmful to fabrics made of cotton, linen and rayon. Line the box with tissue or a washed and well-rinsed cotton fabric. Do not use plastic bags inside the box. Plastics are chemically unstable and trap moisture allowing mold and mildew to grow. It is not necessary to seal the box. Vertical storage: Select a hanger the right size and shape to fit the garment. Pad and cover the hanger using quilt batting and cotton fabric. If a gown has a heavy skirt that would wrinkle badly if folded and stored horizontally. Make a white, cotton dust cover which completely encases the gown and protects it from light and dust. Do not use plastic garment bags for long-term storage.

Sounds like a hard water or rust build up. I'm guessing that this happens on your 1st load after the washer has set for a day or so. The standing water in the pipes gets 'rusty' and when the water starts in the washer it dumps the dirty water directly on one of the shirts as it fills. Try running a small load after it sets for a day and fill a glass with the water coming out and see if it is discolored.

you comprehend, it may desire to be a water difficulty, yet I had an identical situation some 12 months or so in the past while i grow to be utilising Proactiv. there is benzoyl peroxide in it (that's in basic terms approximately the comparable chemical as bleach) and it bleached out spots on a number of my towels and pillowcases, or maybe on some clothing if I wasn't cautious. in case you're utilising a product which does contain a point of peroxide in it, that is it. you'll be able to ought to rinse your face off somewhat extra stringently and in easy terms use white towels once you wash your face. stable success! i'm hoping you discover the inspiration of the situation!

. Our society really needs to try to begin to understand that the 'African-American' (AA) 'Ethnic' group is *not* the same group as the ’Black American' (BA) 'Race' group -- that the two (2) terms are *not* synonymous and that the two (2) terms should *not* be used inter-changeably. We are *not* speaking of ‘semantics’ here – but rather – the BAs & AAs are two different groups of people. The AAs are the (largely Mixed-Race) ETHNIC group. The BAs are the (Mono-Raced) RACE group. As confusing as it seems -- the U.S. government [due to racism & wanting to stigmatize the part of their lineage that was from Africa which, by the way, is only one part of their lineage] --- has labeled those individuals who are the known "descendents of the survivors" of the system of chattel-slavery found in the USA as being AAs (the hyphen is used in reference to acknowledging the fact that most of them are Mixed-Race, with African & non-African blood lines) AND has labeled those people who are "volitional immigrants" who are directly from places such as the continent of African, the West Indies, etc. -- as being BAs (with the word 'Black' used in reference to acknowledging the fact that they are of a Mono-racial full-Black lineage). In addition, it should also be remembered that – although some AAs adhere to a socio-political ‘identity’ that is often described by the slang term of “black”—the AAs are actually *not* a "Race" group at all -- but rather they *are* a largely Mixed-Race 'Ethnic' group (and the socio-political ‘identity’ that a person chooses *does not* change their racially-mixed ancestral lineage). Most (+70%) of the people born to two (2) parents who are of the AA ‘Ethnic’ group are are of a Multi-Racially ‘Mixed’ (MGM) lineage – while the people to two (2) parents who are of the BA ‘Racial’ group – on the other hand – are of a Mono-Racially ‘Black’ lineage. There is a big difference between a largely Multi-racial 'Ethnic' group and between a Mono-racial 'Race group. In addition, there is also a big difference between one's socio-political 'identity' (ex. "black") and one's ancestral racial 'lineage' (ex. 'Mixed'). Just because a person adheres to a given socio-political 'identity' does *not* change the composition of their ancestral 'lineage'. Also -- the 'One-Drop' Rule (the false teaching that 'any amount' of Black ancestral lineage make a person "full black") is nothing more than pure-racism. The racist 'One-Drop Rule' (used only by the United States government, by the way) was created during the antebellum, chattel-slavery era by White racial supremacist in order to get people to believe the false racist myth that the so-called White "race" was "pure" and to falsely view the Black "racial" admixture (even the slightest amount) within someone's ancestral lineage as being "tainted". To embrace the 'One-Drop Rule' is the equivalent of BOTH embracing "racism" and embracing the false teaching that a Mixed-Race person's Black lineage is "tainted". My advice is that a non-Racist should *not* embrace the concept of the 'One-Drop Rule' -- as "Black blood" is *not* "tainted" -- and should never be perceived or embraced as being so (not even in the name of so-called "pride" and "unity"). In addition, legally-speaking, attempted forcible application of the racist 'One-Drop Rule' -- against any individual or group -- was made illegal and ruled as unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court in 1967 via the case of 'Loving vs. The State of Virginia'. Through the 'Loving vs. Virginia' case, the U.S. Supreme Court, ruled against both all of the laws banning Interracial marriage -- and -- also ruled that any so-called law which forcibly applied the 'One Drop Rule' -- was racist, discriminatory, illegal, unconstitutional, and non-enforcible. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Generation... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Generation... Related Links: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Generation... http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MGM-Mixed http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FGM-Mixed ------------------------PLEASE NOTE--------------------- --- Dr. Luigi Caveli-Sforza, who is the Executive Director of the Human Genome Project and the world's foremost authority on human genetics has both tested and proven that more that 70% of all AAs have a full ancestral lineage which consists of +20-30% White / European and more than +25% Amerindian bloodlines. --- That means that the 'average' (+70%) person born to two (2) parents who are both members of the AA Ethnic group actually has slightly less than 50% Black / African blood lineage found in his or her full-ancestral lineage.

If a person insists on spreading the 'myth' that it was the AAs who chose this term for themselves -- it is clearly indicative of the fact that they have never even once actually studied the entire topic and are simply basing their comments on assumption-based ignorance -- rather than objective facts and empirical evidence. .
