Gold Medal Winners

The Boy and his project partner took the gold medal for their science project!

They studied the effect of various stain removers on a variety of stains: they made a grid on a big piece of white fabric, put five different stains on it, and then treated each set of stains with a different stain remover product. We washed the sheet, and the kids then decided what worked best.

The verdict is ...

buy an apron and hand out large cloth napkins at the table!

Nothing works very well. :) All of the stains (red wine, butter, oil, ketchup, and banana) were still visible after laundering, although some stain remover products turned the red wine stain to a shade of blue, which was interesting.
