Thanks to all of you for commiserating with me on my lipsticked laundry. Taking into consideration Art's advice, and doing some looking online, I chose to try a dish-washing detergent and laundry detergent combo. I didn't want to attempt to treat each and every article of clothing, so a soak in the two above seemed like a good way to go. I put everything back into the washer (minus 2 pair of my jeans and some of Kaia's underwear) and added hot water for a little bit, then warm water. I put in both detergents, mixed well with my hands, and let it soak for an hour or so. Then I added more laundry detergent and washed.
A few things came out clean, but I'm not sure they had lipstick on them in the first place. What you see in the photo is the clothes that still need more treatment. Now it's on to painstakingly applying Grandma's Secret Spot Remover.
Do you think it's time for a new laundry basket?
