I’m actually in the middle of doing it right now to get some stubborn spots (ink?) out of a white Brioni shirt. Looks like it might work, too.

It certainly changed my views about the value of the internet as a research tool, and highlighted a lot of negative impacts. I’m already a curmudgeon on a lot of technology; I despise smartphones and in no way do I think Steve Jobs made a net positive contribution to society, when you consider the impact of all the misery, insularity and rudeness that his devices have spawned.That said, I can’t say that I’ve changed my online habits that much; I’m just more aware of what I...
