Okay, something happened unexpected today and I was wondering if anyone out there can tell me exactly how?
After going to the pool, a pair of my sons spare shorts were left inside my van on top of a laundry bottle. (It was Purex laundry detergent which is pictured below).
I was at the pool for a few hours during the day… It was about 95 degrees outside so I would imagine it was significantly hotter inside the van. When I left, I had to put some items in the back of my van. I was in shock what I saw next. Take a look at the picture of the shorts below.
The fabric on the shorts where it was on top of the laundry detergent bottle completely disintegrate. Mind you this was a SEALED bottle of detergent. How can an unopened bottle of laundry detergent eat away at this material? The shorts were made of 100% cotton. I would love to hear anyone who may know how this happened and the safety ramifications? Thanks for reading
