What do you suggest I do with pillows covered in lipstick?
I had some work to do around my rental home and decided to multi-task by bringing along my very good, too-expensive-to-replace down pillows for washing. I washed two and popped them in the (seemingly empty) dryer - the top part of a stacked laundry set - while I washed another two. When the cycles were completed, I opened the dryer door to discover my beautiful white-down pillows looked like they had been used to wipe the killing floor at the goose factory. I guess one of my tenants had a lipstick in the pocket of SOMETHING that had been dried . . . either that or they had evil intentions for the other tenants.
Any suggestions of how to whiten again, or is my only recourse to dye them red?
