Anyone know why washable paint isn't, well, washable? A couple of weeks ago I threw a towel with washable paint on it in the laundry and you want to know what happened? I dyed a bunch of stuff pink. Last night Iris and the babysitter painted and I neglected to tell her to remove Iris' pretty new dress. I threw it in the wash and gee, there's still paint on it! I'm so mad. Trying some new tricks to remove the paint.
