PracticalDad Tip:  Don’t Keep the Disinfectant Spray With the Laundry Supplies

Sometimes things go smoothly and sometimes they fall apart.

With a two story house, I keep a disinfectant spray bottle - containing bleach - on each level so that I can minimize the steps.  And on the main level, that bottle hangs by the trigger from the wire shelf above the washer/dryer.  Also above the washer/dryer hangs a bottle of stain treatment spray.

You see where I'm going with this.

In the process of loading the washer, I found that one of my dark shirts needed a quick treatment and reached for the white bottle to spray the stain.  It was after the shirt came out of the dryer that I realized that the item was ruined; I can't even wear it and make it appear as though it's some weird tie-die design.  It's fortunate that nothing else was ruined.

So, what do I take from this exercise?

  • I could say pay attention to what you're doing or
  • I can find a different high location on which to store the disinfectant.

I'll opt for the latter.  Rats.
