My Hero for today, and possibly the whole month, is our local dry cleaners DUFOURS! Two weeks ago, I spilled an entire cup of coffee down the front of my rather groovin' red spring coat. When you are a middle-aged Mom, you don't have many "nice" clothes left. But that red coat has been with me for almost 15 years, and it still looks fabulous - at my age you take your fabulous where you can get it! Anyway, I spilled the whole thing, with cream, right down the front.
But the story doesn't end there! Oh no, my stupidity lived on. I checked the label and it said machine wash was OK - so in it went, then into the dryer to air fluff. But upon opening the door HORRORS the inside of the dryer drum and my beautiful red coat are massively smeared with "Different Plum" Clinique lipstick! All over, dark purple, even the lining. I had left the #&^%$#^ thing in the pocket!
But DuFours Cleaners to the rescue! For a mere $16 they made my treasured coat lovely again. This may not sound like much to others, but I was so happy I almost leapt across the counter and kissed them! It was a good day.
