Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser and UK children’s medical research charity, Sparks, are working together to make a difference to children’s health both at home and abroad. They are asking you to help make a difference to young lives by donating your used baby blankets and ‘keep the memories, not the bacteria’. Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser has pledged to donate £1 for every blanket collected to children’s medical research charity, Sparks. Sparks want to raise much needed funds for UK families with children who are affected by serious illness or disability.

This is a really good cause. Join us and help today.

And if you have already donated a blanket why not get engaged on social media and spread the word? You can follow Dettol Baby Blanket @DettolBlanket, Sparks Charity @SparksCharity and Rachel Stevens @MSRachelStevens and use the hash tag #sharethememories

And if you have not become involved just yet, to give you a bit of an incentive Dettol Baby Blanket is running a small giveaway. Tell them about your favourite baby blanket memory and you could win a bottle of Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Cleanser 🙂

Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Cleanser kills 99.9% of bacteria at 30°C. Keep the memories, not the bacteria! Get involved now!

Send your blanket to Dettol Baby Blanket Donation and help spread the word. The more people get involved, the more kids we can help.

Did you know that every minute of every day, approximately 50 babies are born into poverty and will experience conditions lacking basic essentials including hygienically clean blankets?

Baby blankets symbolise a very special time in both a mother and child’s life, holding many precious memories of the early days of life. However, many babies across the world will never get the chance to experience even the simple comfort that a warm, hygienically clean blanket brings.

Laboratory tests commissioned by Dettol – on washed blankets donated by volunteer mums – show that baby ‘blankies’ carry a variety of bacteria even after a 40°C wash with a third of the washed blankets harbouring coliforms – a group of bacteria linked to faeces. Dettol is hoping to raise awareness of this research as well as donate much needed funds to support children’s health.

Dettol and Rachel Stevens (a celebrity mum of two and new ambassador of Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser) are encouraging mums across the UK to “keep the memories, not the bacteria” by donating a blanket via Freepost and sharing their special recollections and photographs of their babies’ blanket on social media. Once collected, the baby blankets will be hygienically washed with Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser before being re-distributed by Dettol to families in need.

Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser has also pledged to donate £1 for every blanket collected to children’s medical research charity, Sparks. Sparks want to raise much needed funds for UK families with children who are affected by serious illness or disability.

Keep the memories, not the bacteria and help to raise money for children’s health charity Sparks.
