Black Bean Tostadas

I stripped Garrett’s workout clothes this weekend.

I can’t even begin to describe the satisfaction and disgust.

I discovered this cleaning instagram account a few months ago and it has really just made me feel like a dirty, garbage person. Like, I’ll never be able to keep my house as clean as this woman does hers.

But I had to start somewhere! This clothes stripping is supposed to get trapped dirt & filth out of CLEAN clothes. Like, clothes you wash & dry & think are good to go. Garrett is arguably the sweatiest man on planet earth, so I knew this would be a fun experiment. We added his workout shorts & tees to a tub with hot water & the magic cleaning potion & let them sit for 5 hours. The water was slick BROWN. I mean, pure dirt water. It was amazing.

Even Garrett was impressed and now we are stripping everything we ever touched.
