Holes in My Shirt SOLVED!420
*Who knew four years, and 400+ comments, later the topic “Holes in my Shirt” would still be of interest!*
I’m so excited – over solving a very minor but annoying thing that has plagued me!! Holes in my shirt. Pesky, little holes.
We moved into our house a little over a year ago. Since that time I slowly started building a wardrobe of shirts with little small holes at the bottom. Just one hole typically. Always at the bottom about an inch above the hem, and always at the same spot in the center. At first I thought it was a fluke. Then I thought it was the dryer. Then we got a new dryer. Then I thought it was the button on my jeans (I always wear jeans). Then I thought it was because I always carry the toddler and his knee or shoes always hit right at my waist.
I’ve tried everything … air drying my shirts to avoid the dryer, trying to get more expensive (read thicker cotton) shirts, changing how I hold the toddler so his shoes don’t hit the front of my shirt … and today I sat looking through Etsy trying to find some scarf belts, figuring that would block the jeans button from rubbing against the shirt.
Then, Google-obsessed that I am, I decided to read up on my dilemma. Low-and-behold I stumbled on a solution. It wasn’t jeans or buttons or little moths. No, it was granite countertops.
And I look down from where I stand … where I stand typing on my laptop that sits on the kitchen counter … the granite kitchen counter that I lean up against as I type. And the granite overlap, with it’s nice tile edges and grout, is RIGHT at the spot where the damn hole is.
Problem solved. No need to buy a belt! But I’m not so sure I can don an apron every time I work … That just isn’t me!! So I’ll now have to come up with a solution to that problem :)
