With a house full of children aged 1-18 muck, spills and stains are a daily battle. Be it makeup wiped across the carpets, scooter dirt being driven through the house or food covering every available surface.
When I was given the opportunity to work with Vanish I jumped at the chance to take some of their stain removal tips and use their products.
The biggest problem in my home are food and drink spillages from the youngest ones. No matter how hard I try to keep them at the table before my head is turned they are are clambering the stairs leaving a trail of destruction behind them.
I had some really ground in stains in the carpet that needed coming out, and to be honest I didn’t think anything would touch them. After around four applications of Vanish power shot carpet remover the stains had almost completely disappeared.
My other pet gripe is trying to remove stains from clothing. The boys are the real issue here as they are just muck magnets. My oldest seems to bath in mud everytime he plays football and the youngest two end the day covered head to toe in anything they come into contact with!
I have tried most stain removers and never really found one that worked that well for me. I gave Vanish gold powergel pre-treatment stain remover alongside Vanish gold oxi action powder fabric stain remover a go and was really pleased with the results.
The pretreatment came in a really easy to use bottle and simply needed working into the stains and leaving to do its magic for a few minutes before I put on my usual wash with an extra scoop of stain remover added.
Whites are by far my biggest issues and I will be regularly adding both of these products to my wash which will be a much cheaper option than throwing things away which is what I normally end up doing.
The only downside is that is doesn’t work so well on the children!!
I was gifted these products by Vanish and these are all my own honest opinions of the products.
