Well, it was...until Carli came running inside with a white linen shirt in her hands exclaming "I washed Chris's clothes with Maya's red dress and now everything that is white has splotches of red!" Fil and Chris had told us about their wedding attire and we knew that Chris was wearing a white linen shirt and were freaked out at the fact that we had just ruined his wedding shirt! This is where the panicking began...it resulted in lots of giggling (not in an evil way...) soaking, re-washing, scrubbing with bicarb, stain remover, anything we could get our hands on...and ended in (thankfully) and pure white linen shirt as good as new!
We were thinking we were pretty darn good and Filipa and Chris would never know, the shirt would get ironed and hung up neatly in a cupboard ready for the big day.
Turns out after all of that hard work we couldn't contain the secret any longer and spilled the beans only to have Chris tell us that it wasn't even his wedding shirt! He is obviously a fan of linen and doesn't just wear it for a special occasion. Oh well, it kept us entertained for the afternoon and Chris now owns one of the most sparkling white linen shirts around!
