It was my daughters sports day yesterday and I dressed her in her nursery uniform, white t-shirt with the school logo and black shorts. I even cleaned her trainers. Her t-shirt has seen better days really. It's stained yellow from her sun block and there's a couple of small stains that just won't come out. This shirt had been washed and ironed but just never looks clean anymore. The next day at nursery, her teacher said "I've put her t-shirt in her school bag, I let her borrow a clean one for sports day". I was soo I am a very tidy person, and she probubly thinks I don't wash my daughters clothes. If they cost less, I'd buy a load of them but they are not cheep. She also only has 2 weeks left before she breaks up for summer, then she'll be in proper uniform.
what ssd said. Almost all of ds's white school shirts have ground-in stains that I just can't shift by this time of year. Anyone with eyes in their head and a nose on their face can tell the difference between a garment that has been washed but also worn regularly by a small child and one that is actually dirty!
(My mother swears by net curtain whitener - apparently that was the reason I was the only child at infant school with bright white socks in an an area with very heavy clay soil. BUT even that doesn't work on ds's school shirts.)
I thought that was the point of nursery uniform. The kids can have fun without worrying about spoiling their clothes. When I see the state she gets in to I realise it's acctually good she has a uniform. Although it dosn't look good, it serves a perpose.
