When LittleStuff took on the Vanish 30 Second Challenge

We were recently asked by Tots100 to take part in the 30 second stain challenge using new Vanish Gold Oxi Action Powder.

Now anyone who knows me has probably just started laughing – I am no domestic laundry queen.  I’m not. Separating whites and coloureds is about as far as my skills go – stain removal is possibly a step beyond my capabilities.

Certainly instant stain removal is a skill that has thus far eluded me in life. Stains are the things I notice the next time my child wears a piece of clothing – AFTER it’s been washed and dried.

So, this’ll be interesting Vanish. Let’s see if you can break the habit of a lifetime, and teach me to deal with stains in a way my mother never managed to drum into me…

Yes. That’s me. Totally Converted. I LOVE that drum of pink and gold!

I also throw a scoop into a wash of lights now, which brightens up the whites nicely. I’ve ALSO managed to remove a week-old washed-and-dried-on lily pollen stain from the back of my favourite grey jumper (note to self, do NOT lean against the dresser when your husband has bought you a huge bouquet of flowers. Lily pollen is not only a killer to get out, but you’ll not notice and will walk around for the rest of the day with big yellow smearage up your back. Nice.). In fact, I used the Vanish Tip Exchange, and have also managed to remove the half-mug-of-tea stain from a white bath towel too (don’t even ask how it got there). Now I just need to lose the mayo from my favourite wool cardigan and I’ll be a new woman.

I suggest every home should have a tub of Pink and Gold at the ready – the thing is, you just never know when you might need it. A bit like headlice medicine…

Disclaimer – we were provided with a  tub of Vanish and paid to try the challenge.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
