Laundry Disaster!

I accidentally washed and DRIED my laundry with a tube of carmex inside. Now there are spots all over everything. Any suggestions on how I can get this out?

Desarae,

because Carmex is greasy, what you can try is this

use 2 tablespoons ammonia

3/4 cup of dawn soap

2 cups warm water, let it sit for alittle while

your fighting grease with a grease fighter..dawn!

Thanks that sounds like a great idea. If not looks like I'll be shopping this weekend to replace some of my work shirts!

You may want to call the manufacture or check their website to see what they suggest you do.

You can use goo-be-gone. It's in a small bottle with a black label in the cleaning or laundry department at Target or Walmart. Put it liberally on each grease spot and throw in the washer. You could also handwash each spot with Dawn but it takes awhile longer. I've taken out chapstick and crayon in a laundry load with the goo-be-gone.

I've used Robbie's "recipe" for removing Carmex. It works, thanks Robbie!

to remove carmex or other greasy items try a good shampoo or a hair stripper

I've had many lip balm in the washer disasters. The thing I've found that works is Goof Off - you can get it at the hardware store. Just make sure the fabric can handle it. Apply to the spots, let it sit for a few minutes, and then wash in hot water.

The same thing happened with the carmex. It is a disaster. Very expensive jeans ruined along with shirts. Please help!
