I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt until this is proven in a court of law. It sounds like she almost did his laundry. Maybe she applied the ajax and then discovered she had insufficient change for the washing machine. And the electronics. Were they vibrators?

1) I'd say this spurned furious hellion let him off easy compared to most crazy ex-girlfriends. 2) I'd also bet the electronics had pictures on it she didn't want him to post.

Yes, I once had an overzealous feminist claim that violence is inherently male; females just don't do such things! 'Nuff said!

If the aforementioned product is scouring powder with bleach, best effect requires dampening the ex's clothes appropriately before dusting them with Ajax.

Only your mother would know that. Modern ladies only know their Mexican cleaning lady's #.

Odd behavior for a "normal" individual.

Hell know's no wrath.....but at least it wasn't bleach!!

Mine would have left the electronics and taken the Ajax powder.
