Fingers Crossed!

My boy has been unemployed for awhile - various reasons. BUT last week he started what we hope to be a mechanics apprenticeship. YAHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Week 2 and he got up when the alarm went off. Those who know him will understand that that is a BIG thing. It helps that his workplace is a 5 minute drive away and an 8am start. He is not a morning person. ;-)
Now I need help. Anyone got any great ideas on how to get his uniform clean or more precisely mark free? Those drill navy pants are great at disguising the marks, but his navy/fluro yellow synthetic shirts are dreadful. I don't think he cares and I look on them as a sign of hard work.
We are happy. Let's hope the usual week three hurdle won't be so high this time.
Take care,

That is certainly something to be excited about... will always find work with that behind him.... hope you can find a cure for the fluro shirts.... I gave up on them.... and I think they are considered a symbol of hard work!!

Crossing my fingers for you and your son Kayly. We are doing the same with my daughter who wants to finish school now that she has completed year 10. Now as for the cleaning.... that is a problem. I have the same thing with my son and hubby. We use "stain stick" (Sard Wonder - like the soap but it's like a stick of glue) then I always add a cap of Napisan in the wash too. Not sure how you will go with grease and oil.

I hope your son's job is going well and he enjoys it.
