White Pants Woes—I need your help!

If you have been following me on Facebook this summer, you may remember me writing about my anxiety with relation to my new white pants.

I found some cropped white pants at the Gap Outlet on my way back from a family vacation a month ago.  They were a bargain price, so I decided to throw caution to the wind and buy them.  Since then I have been on high alert every time I wear the pants and was unable to make it more than two hours in them before I managed to slop something on them.

What a Mess!

The first time, was a trip to Subway with the kids for lunch and I got salad dressing on them.  The next time, was at a girls-night-out at a Mexican restaurant.  I had my lap layered with napkins to prevent any mishaps with the salsa.  At the conclusion of dinner, I noticed the napkins were still clean and relished in my own success.  Alas, it was not to be, after removing the napkins, I discovered three salsa drips.  What?!  How did that happen?!!

As if the torture wasn’t enough with one pair of white pants, I went to Banana Republic a couple of weeks ago and saw another pair of white pants that I considered buying (the cropped ones are cut in such a way that the knees get baggy, so that they look perpetually bent—now I don’t really like them).  So when I saw this new full length pair for only $7, (yes I got them for only $7!)  I thought, what the hell.

The Bleach Pen Will Keep Me Safe…


Since buying the first pair, a friend of mine recommended buying a Clorox Bleach Pen to ease my mind if I got anything on them.  Well sure enough, the first time I wore them, I rubbed up against something that left marks on the thigh.  “Aha!”  I thought, “I’ve got you this time stain!” as I pulled out my bleach pen and applied it to my pant leg.  I continued shopping and a couple hours later when I returned home, I notice a yellow squiggle on my pants from where I administered the bleach.

Nope, That Didn’t Work Either.  Now What?

So here’s where I need your help, what did I do wrong?  Do I only put the bleach on before I load them in the laundry?
