In honor of National S'mores Day, August 10th, we're dropping some history and stain fighting tips!
No one knows exactly how the classic S'more came to be. Records date the S'more at least back to 1927 when a recipe designated "some mores" appeared in Tramping and Trailing with the Girl Scouts. Some attribute the recipe to the Campfire Girls, while others liken the gooey treat to teacakes that originated in the Victorian era. The source of the S'more is widely contested!
There is no argument that the delicious, sticky, summer time staple inevitably makes a mess. Here are three (and a half) pro-active steps to prevent a s’mores stain from setting in for good!
Before drying, make sure the stain is completely removed. If the stain is still present, repeat steps 1 and 2. Drying with stain still on fabric will encourage the stain to set and make it very difficult to remove.
Dry. On medium heat, dry clean clothes to wear for the next s’mores party!
