but I’m worried it will stain if I leave it for too long. So I set up a camp chair in front of my washing machine and I’m hanging out here, babysitting the washing machine.
I've accidentally dyed stuff with hair dye e.g. skirting boards, bathroom cupboards etc.but hadn't noticed at the time. A bit bleach does the job, just wiping it over for a few minutes. I managed to get blue dye on the white painted window ledge, again a bit of wiping with bleach brought it off with no yellowing of the paint.

I would think even if the enamel/paint on the washing machine did get stained then bleach would get rid of it.

Here’s my newest knitting project - again, more baby crap. I made this for my best friend’s kid’s birthday. I am actually really pleased with how it turned out!

Yes, it’s pink - because of COVID, I had to order online, and so to make sure the sizing would work out, I bought the yarn that was specified in the pattern. The only colour choices were pink, blue, white (impractical for a small child), and this super ugly lime green colour. So, sadly, I had to settle for a stereotypical “gendered” colour.

Another baby blanket, for a friend who decided to knock up his wife in the middle of a bloody pandemic. I personally think this is a terrible idea, but I’m trying to be a good friend.
