ineluctable \in-ih-LUCK-tuh-buhl\, adjective:
Impossible to avoid or evade; inevitable.

Ineluctable is from Latin ineluctabilis, from in-, "not" + eluctari, "to struggle out of, to get free from," from ex-, e-, "out of" + luctari, "to struggle."

If I wear light colored clothing it's ineluctable that they'll act like a magnet for anything and everything that can leave a stain (which explains my mostly dark wardrobe!).
