When Vanish contacted me to ask whether I would like to put some of their products to the test, I decided to give it a try. Washing is a tedious task, and anything that will help with stain removal and make life easier has to be worth a go!
I also had recently stained a pair of trackie bottoms. These are not something that I wear in public on a regular basis; they are my highly attractive and extremely comfortable '
|The lighting makes it hard to see the stain in this photo but trust me, it's there!|
I poured a little of the gel on to the stain (the bottle recommends 2mls) and rubbed it in. A word of advice; do not do this using your bare fingers, like I did. Rather uncomfortable! I then left it for the ten minutes required.
I then thought I should really put the Oxi Action Powder to the soaking test, so I chose some of my worst stained items... TANNING MITTS.
|Sadly, I am not great at keeping my tanning mitts spick 'n' span as I use them so rarely!|
The package directions recommended 1 scoop of powder per 4 litres of water; I halved these amount to soak the mitts. I left the mitts for approximately 5 hours before rinsing them and putting them in with a normal wash.
I am very glad I got to try these products, as I now know that they are items I will always keep in my household stash. They will come in immensely useful for all the spillages that are likely to occur in my house; make up stains, coffee stains, red wine stains... the list is endless really. The Vanish website even has advice on how to remove blood stains.... let's hope it doesn't come to that, although you never know now that my boyfriend is moving in with me!! (jokes, he's not that annoying.... usually!)
Is Vanish something that gets regular use in your household? Let me know what stains it has busted for you!
