Household Tip #47: Wash in coleslaw

Lately, I’ve seen lots of tips for using common household products such as baking soda, car wax, baby oil, and dryer sheets. Vinegar makes a great window cleaner. Mayonnaise can remove water rings from furniture. But I’ll admit it never occurred to me to use coleslaw as a laundry aid. So glad I saw this “qualifcation”!

Stop by every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Wednesday for a peek into the world of spelling, punctuation, or grammar gone wrong!

JoJo: Makes me laugh every time I look at it. I just realized that it’s probably supposed to translate to “on clothesline.”

Coleslaw, clothesline … same thing, basically. Right?

That is so funny. When I saw your facebook post about washing clothes in coleslaw, I thought- Kim has gone bonkers. She needs to stick to writing curriculum!

Malia: You could share it on your FB wall as a new tip for homemakers!

LOLLL. Someone seriously needs to try this and tell us what happens. (:

Davette: I think that’s a symbol for “hang to dry.” How that became “coleslaw” remains a mystery! :)
