Vanish is my number one go to for stain removal. Since having children, the vast array of stains they produce is unbelievable but with a little helping hand, I can usually vanish most of them away! We received some of the latest Vanish products to try out and you can win a set too, just see below.
It didn’t take long to find a stain to test them out on, 4yr old Mister B came home from nursery last week and was delighted in telling me about the new “mud kitchen” they have at nursery to play with. A “real” sink, saucepans, pots, wooden spoons and a unused flowerbed for them to dig in to their hearts delight!
Not only was his top covered in mud, but underneath his white vest looked dreadful. Wet mud is never a good idea (not that I want to spoil his fun) but trying to get rid of the stains is a nightmare so before washing I applied some Vanish Gold Powergel quite liberally over the marks and left if for 5 minutes before putting in the wash.
And this was the result:
I’m quite pleased with it and it was simple and easy to do. A few squirts of the gel and it really helps with the stain removal. I’m sure if I hadn’t used it I would have ended up with a vest still covered in mud stains.
Vanish have products to attack stains in all areas from clothes to carpets so it’s well worth giving them a try to get rid of those nasty spills and marks.
