    Peroxide is best. Oxyclean is okay, too.

    Thanks guys! I'm going to try to get it out first, it was a brand new shirt. We're going to have matching forehead scars now.

    Peroxide for sure. More than you think too. I’ve gotten what I thought was a lost cause out.

    Do any Chickens and their partners have a shared grocery list app, where when one person adds something it automatically updates in the other's app? I know google is a thing but I'm looking for endorsements from people who I trust.

    I have no answers but once you find one, I’ll be downloading it too.

    We used to use Keep but now we use Google Shopping List. We have a Google Home (Mini) so we can just tell it to add eggs to the list and can both see/edit it.

    We've used Out of Milk, it's only okay. Keep works well though not grocery specific. I've been meaning to try Flipp for this purpose. I like it for marking down flyer deals already.

    We have Our Groceries. I like that we can break it up by store, too.

    We have different lists on Google too. It’s not perfect but I can tell it to add everything bagel seasoning to the Trader Joe’s list and it does.

    We both have the app for our grocery store downloaded so if we want to add something we can then I order our groceries for the week from the app too. I always place the order because C is impulsive and will see something in the weekly add on the app and buy it. No, C. We don't need 5 bags of chips just because they are buy 2 get 3.

    We just say 'we need milk' or 'we need loo roll' at each other until someone remembers on their way home or the situation becomes urgent enough to run out. You guys are so organized.

    LOL if only. I am the one who remembers what we are out of and when. Brian is the one who does grocery shopping for dinner, I do the rest of it. I'd like to be able to have him pick things up for me that doesn't involve him responding "remind me" when I text him during the day to pick up baby wipes.

    I’ll admit I still forget to look at the list when I just make a quick trip. D is all “it was on the list!” and I’m all “I went for milk, I didn’t look at the list!”

    You have to adjust around British people because if you accidentally use an Americanism they tilt their heads and pretend to not understand what you're saying. This happens more than you would think.

    We use google shopping list. Bonus that thanks to google home when we are in the middle of cooking we can shout “add olive oil to the shopping list” without having to wash our hands first.

    We also use it for shared chores lists, because you can set recurring items.

    Don't worry, I'm with you Ham. We are on the magnetic notepad stuck to the fridge system. And about half the time one of us has to text the other a picture of it because we forgot it at home.

    We just use google keep but I’m realizing we may need to use google shopping list.

    I’m “list on the fridge” and J was “do an inventory when you meal plan.” After intentionally leaving things off the list when he was meal planning/cooking so he didn’t have something he needed because inventory before you go doesn’t work, he’s now team “list on the fridge.”
