I am so SAD!

I have been on a laundry kick lately. No, not actually putting the laundry away, just washing it. (I'm working on the other part today). Well yesterday I decided to wash our comforter. It hasn't been washed for a while, and it needed it.

Now, this comforter is our FAVORITE comforter. We waited a whole year, saving up our money, so we could purchase it. It is the Nautica colorblock. It has navy blue, orange, tan and khaki green stripes. It is beautiful, and we love it. We have had it for almost 2 years now.

Well, I put it in the washing machine. I put in the detergent. I started the washing machine. An hour later, I went to pull it out and put it in the dryer. As I was pulling it out, I noticed what looked like detergent still on it. I called Mike down (Mike was working from home). As I continued to pull it out, I noticed what looked like a tear.

Later, when I pulled the comforter out of the dryer (after washing it twice to get all the detergent out, and drying it for 3- 60 minute cylces) I noticed that the detergent has totally ruined the fabric! What the heck?!

There are spots like this all over my beautiful comforter. And, the padding inside has all been separated and bunched up in places. It's totally ruined, and I am totally sad! :( Mike says there's no use in getting upset because stuff happens, but seriously, after 2 years?! It's not fair!!

You are supposed to wash it according to the manufacturer's instructions printed on the tag... I bet you tore off the tag didn't you! lol

Being all smart i decided to wash it how I thought it would supposed to be washed. Turns out it was supposed to be on gentle.

go to the laundry mat and wash it in one of those big ass washers..it gets evenly cleaned and dried and doesn't bunch up. I take ours there and it works great!
