No idea. I've never had that problem. Whats the material? All my bedding is cotton so they're easy to get back to white.
cotton as well. I’ve read that lotion, sweat, oils, etc can cause discoloration in white bedding and that bleaching can further discolor them due to oxidation. However I’ve never seen this issue on hotels or anything. They must have some industrial strength cleaner.

Agreed, but white bedding just isn’t practical.

Especially, if you get any type of action or even just have a woman stay over.

Makeup/tanning lotions etc and you’re done.
Thankfully never encountered this back in the day, chicks weren't staying over long enough to get makeup on my sheets. The ones that did stay over though if they did get makeup on the sheets just spray it with stain remover during laundry day. I would have a rough estimate of when it was that time of the month for my girls and stay away or not invite them over.

Showering before bed prevents most of that. Tough stains can easily be taken out with an oxi soak or dabbing out with peroxide vinegar. Most people just don’t wash their sheets frequently which lets thing set more.

Hotels soak their sheets, pillowcases and towels in bleach and water before washing. They’re also laundering after stays. That’s why they’re so clean.

I'm a shower before bed guy, I still experienced it slightly. I'm going to try the peroxide vinegar.

***** Bachelor Pad Update *****

Decided not to go with lil faux plants for my wall shelf. Ima get some real ones & put them somewhere else in my living room. Went with these silver spheres instead. They remind me of dragon balls :lol:.

Alright been slowing working on some DIY things.
Got the Lack coffee table from IKEA. Replaced the legs with hairpin ones from Amazon, and wrapped the table in matte black contact paper.

Added the Varmer tray from IKEA. Tried to stain it black but the stain wouldn’t hold, so I spray painted the tray. I also have a second tray on my wall as an entryway mirror.

Lastly these are my new dishes. Bought them from Macy’s (Urban Outfitters sold them at one point as well).

Man, leaving the bachelor pad life and moving into a spot with the fiancee kind of sucks. But I absolutely love our new place and will try to get pics if I get the place finished up this weekend before she gets back home. Have a few attached for now (view of Downtown Dallas from the rooftop at night; buffet cabinet I stained after we moved in; dining table and bench we're currently working on beating up a bit to match the table closer; view from the living room into the kitchen; TV that we had to mount above the fireplace due to room setup) - pardon the mess!

Got a grill for the rooftop from my parents for my birthday last weekend. Walked into Home Depot and found a $1050 Weber grill that was marked down to $750 on sale, then an additional 50% on top of that on clearance. It was missing the grates so the manager told us to take it away for $300 if we bought the grates for it :pimp:

Also...replaced the 65" TV in the attached pic with a new TV. Didn't have anything to do with the old one so hung it in my office for now (only 9'x10'). The TV looks ridiculous in there...debating replacing it with one of our other spare TVs and taking the 65" up to the rooftop patio.

P.S. any tips on removing that damn satellite dish from the rooftop? Do I need to plug the holes or anything? Think the bottom part of where it is mounted is in an unreachable part of a small attic/storage area. Never dealt with a roof mounted satellite before.

Finally ripped out the carpet and old floor in my condo. Will post pics soon, so far looks great. First major DIY with no experience.
