    Your first post said "Please check my sentence". You posted two sentences for checking. Which one would you like us to check?

    Perhaps: My mother washed all my clothes together. One of my shirts had chewing gum in its/the pocket and the gum's colouring stained one of my other shirts.

    Re: shirts had a chewing gum in its pocket and its colour got stuck on one of my othe

    This is the second thread in which you have used "distorted" in a very unnatural way. Please take some time to study the definition of the word (not the translation to your own language, but the definition and use of it in English). Try putting it into Fraze.it

    My shirt got stained because of the chewing gum's colour in the pocket of my other shirt while washing.

    It was the gum, not its color, that stained the shirt.
