Vanish – Stain Removal. Review and Competition

I know housework and chores are not the most exciting thing to talk about, but they are a part of everyday life, I feel that I am constantly washing clothes and the amount of items that have stains on is unbelievable. I have used Vanish in the form of a pre-wash spray but I haven’t used the whole range. I was very happy to give other products a test run though and I was ‘lucky’ that they arrived during a particularly stain ridden week!20150924_141647

We were sent three products to use to give a go:

Vanish Powershot Carpet Stain Remover – a foam that gets to work immediately, removing stains by driving deep into the carpet pile. It has a fizzy action that helps dissolve and lift stains.

Vanish Gold for Whites Powder (470g) – Best for your white wash, makes your white garments three shades whiter and is so powerful it removes some stains in just 30 seconds! Can also be used to pre-soak or pre-treat a stain

Vanish Gold Oxi Action Powder (470g) – This has a super boosted formula that is so powerful it removes some stains in just 30 seconds! Can be used on whites or colours!

So as I mentioned I had a bad stain week, it seemed that everything we did caused a stain! We had hot chocolate down Mouse’s PE T-shirt (yep, the one she normally only wears in school), Food down Monkey’s England Shirt, Face Paint all over a flannel and even Tomato sauce on my dressing gown (I was tidying and the bottle leaked!). So it seemed obvious to start by trying out the Vanish Gold for White powder.

I decided not to soak or treat the stains before hand to see what this powder can do. You add the powder directly in with your washing powder and perform your normal wash. Here are the resultsvanishI have to say I am impressed, you can see the results and the stain are gone. You can also use the powder to keep your whites white by popping it in every wash and I will definitely be doing that from now on!

 

I think any household suffers stains but I know in our house it is more a question of ‘what stain this time?’. Living with young children it is a mixture of food, outside elements; grass, mud etc and creativeness!

I have to be honest though, not all of the stains are from the children. Dad in Law is prone to leaving a few Red Wine Stains on his top and my carpet and I am terrible for knocking my coffee over! Vanish have extra help in form of their Stain Remover Tool. You simply pop in the stain and fabric and it tells you the best product to use!

The lovely Vanish folk are offering a chance to win the same three products I was sent, If you want to be in with a chance of winning follow the options on the Gleam widget to enter (do as many or few entries as you please). Oh and Good luck, we all need some vanish in our lives!

  11. I always struggle with fruit food stains! Having a messy 1 year old eater, and waiting for a full load to do a wash means they get right in the grains of fabric and I always end up having to rewash a few times to get them out completely! And don’t even get me started on tomatoes! They’re the worst of the worst!
