The Great Laundry Challenge of 2012

With a name this dramatic, what could go wrong?

Last week my Senior Transitions class studied laundry. This class is all about college preparation, and the mildew-scented, coin-operated basement laundry room can be a daunting place.

On Wednesday we had a laundry competition. Half the class worked in pairs to eliminate a stain. I stained white tshirts and let them sit for 24 hours before giving the kids 30 minutes to do their worst.
Tomato sauce
Raspberry tea

Results time. Sparkling white!
He got bonus points for removing his stain, plus the built-in pit stains of these (very) old undershirts.
The finalists
Me judging the tshirts in the light
The winners!
Soy sauce and lipstick were no match for these stain removal champions.

I absolutely LOVE teaching Senior Transitions. We're done with college applications, laundry, and sex. This week we move along to drugs, alcohol, and nutrition.
