Stains - no bugs or bites... Help! [fecal stain ID](4 posts)
I recently noticed that my sheets have black stains, some are dots and some are smeared... Pictures can be found at http://www.flickr.com/photos/84842686@N03/
I checked the seams of my mattress and have found nothing. I also have no unique bites - I am in camp for the summer, so I have some mosquito bites, but nothing to make me think that these bites are any different than normal.
They don't look like fecal traces from bed bugs. Are you on a pullout sofa? Could be from the metal frame or from the springs. You see these marks when the sheet rubs against the metal.
Could also be from the dryer as I have seen these types of marks from sheets binding up in the drum of the dryer.
Thank you very much for your response. I am in camp, using a wooden/metal bedframe and a cloth mattress. I felt around the metal area of the frame and didn't get any ink-like dirt, although the dirt only really appears at the head and foot of the sheets.
If it was the drier, wouldn't other clothes also affected?
Lastly, I live in a bunk with four other people. Is it possible that only my bed would be affected?
Is this anywhere near your pillow and do you wear mascara? That sounds like a dumb question but these stains look like my pillowcase does in the mornign if I don't take off my eye makeup! I guess I dont' know if you're a guy or a girl (or if you're either why you would be bothering with mascara at camp). Just a thought though. These makeup stains also don't come out of my sheets well at all. So are you all getting sheets from the same place?
