Doom : it might be useless on spiders but…29 April , 2009
There is something that it is good for so don’t toss it out just yet.
Fatcat told me about this last year, but this is the first time I’ve tried it myself. Forget about Vanish, if you have a really tough stain what you need is a can of Doom.
Would I lie to you? (nope…I wouldn’t!)
I have this green-grey leather jacket that had a little stain on next to the collar. It’s machine washable and can be tumble dried (what will they come up with next?) but no amount of washing has been able to get that spot out. So I decided to try this Doom trick and see if it worked, if it didn’t this jacket was about to be dyed brown to suit it’s spot.
Look at that! Good as new. I am very impressed, cause honestly I didn’t think it would work. Just a word of caution : you need to hold the can about 20cm away when you do this – too close and you’ll have a Doom stain instead and the only thing that get’s that out is…you guessed it, more Doom!
I am hoping it will also have some sort of bug repelling side effect when I wear it in future. 😉
Of course you can never have too many spot free jackets when you work in winter time, and that’s just what I’ll be doing. 😀 It’s getting a bit nippy here at night and early in the mornings (+/- 10’C), but like I said to my mom: even when it’s at its coldest in SA it’s still equal to someone in the world’s idea of summer. Think about that next time you feel like you’re freezing your ass off.
I spoke to one of my new bosses yesterday – she says looks like the training will only happen next week. The company is busy moving offices so it’s chaos at the moment. I can live with that, guess I’ll be starting in May then – April has been one looooong weekend for me, I’m a bit sick of it really. I want to get started! 😆 (I am sure I’ll regret this attitude in a month or two when I’m snowed under good and proper, but at the moment I am thrilled at the end that’s in sight of the quiet month of April).
This actually works out perfectly (by this time I really shouldn’t be surprised at all), because today my car has gone in for a much overdue service and it looks like I need to go spend some quality time with the Receiver of Revenue tomorrow to get my future tax sorted out. Has anyone got any idea how provisional tax works? I have a vague suspicion, but I think it won’t hurt to go get some more information so I know what I’m letting myself in for. I do NOT want to be on the shit-list of Trevor and his SARS minions EVER.
