I ruined my daughters blankie. Not just any blankie, but the one she has loved unconditionally for her entire life. She takes it everywhere. It is the only thing that comforted her through recovery from her surgery over the summer and I RUINED IT... I spilled chololate milk on it the other day and it was in a plastic bag and went unnoticed for a couple days. I just found it to put it in the washer and it was mildewed. I put it in anyway with some bleach to disinfect it but the damage is done. It is officially ruined. Do you think I would feel better if I bought a duplicate and ripped the ear off it to match the old one??? I really don't think I would but she probably wouldn't notice, she is only two. Gosh I feel so bad. What mom wouldn't run right in and launder her babies favorite blankie. Worse, who would forget it for a few days and ruin it????? OH my, I feel so bad. I just want to throw up. It makes me ill to think that I have or will have caused her pain. She loves that blankie and she held it dear for weeks after surgery. It was the only way she would sleep. It was disgusting with grime by the time I snuck it away to wash it. Now I have gone and ruined it. Have you ever ruined your childs favorite thing in the entire world? Do you think I should replace it? Should I cut a piece off and put it in her baby book for memories. Oh this is TERRIBLE. Probably one of the worst things I have ever done in my life. I have caused her pain through my own negligence.....

If it is just a matter of getting the mildew stains out, try putting it in the wash with some dish washing detergent. It is supposed to help get out sour smells and mildew.
