Show me your stains and #win a Vanish bundle

Show me your stain and #win Vanish bundle #VanishGoldBKI have a slight case of OCD when it comes to washing; stains drive me mad and sometimes I really wonder how I will survive in my household.

I tend to walk around the house and collect washing which most of the time will go straight in to the washing machine. Piece by piece I carefully inspected them to check if they require any kind of pre-wash, soak or maybe an earlier stain treatment. And then… off you go, my washing machine does its magic giving me back clean and fresh laundry.

This is what happens most of the time… but sometimes life gets in the way and dirty clothes are left to build up in the laundry basket, the stains dry out and embed themselves into the fabric and my task of getting them back to their formal glory is no longer as straightforward as it was. They require pre-treatment. In the old days this would usually involve a bowl, some stain removing powder, a pair of rubber gloves, a lot of rubbing and time… time to allow it to work and actually lift the stain, at least a little. That was then but what about now… now there is new Vanish Gold which works in just 30 seconds; the bobbly scoop removes the need for gloves and much of the hard rubbing and its powdery texture doesn’t require a secure work space such as a bowl as it really can’t go very far 🙂

Show me your stain & #win Vanish bundle #VanishGoldBKTo makes things even easier there is also a Vanish Gold power gel pre-treat; this little fellow comes in the form of a gel. All you have to do is squeeze a little into your stain; rub in circles using the bobbly cap and leave it to work for a minute or two. Easy, isn’t it?

Do you have stains you can’t battle?

Is there a particular substance which is causing you problems?

I would love to know.

Well done to @ltibby17

On the lookout for UK’s Most Dedicated Pet Owner

UK’s Most Dedicated Pet Owner Competition from Frontline

Show us just how much you love and care for your pet to be crowned the winner of our nationwide competition.

Is your pet your everything?

Do you spend more time pampering your pooch than yourself?

Perhaps you’re more concerned about your pet’s healthy balanced diet than your family’s!

If this sounds like you or anyone you know, then FRONTLINE Spot On, the leading tick and flea preventative, wants to hear about it! FRONTLINE wants to reward animal lovers who don’t just love their pet, but go out of their way to give them the best care possible.

To be crowned the UK’s Most Dedicated Pet Owner, simply follow these steps:
1. Like FRONTLINE’s new facebook page
2. Upload a special photo of you and your pet that shows just how much you love your furry friend, along with a short description on why you deserve to win this coveted title
3. Share your entries with your friends and family and encourage them to enter too!

Entries will then be judged by a panel of vet experts, including celebrity vet Joe Inglis, and the winner will not only receive a sparkling trophy, but also a UK-based, pet-friendly staycation for the whole family… including your furry best friend, and a pet hamper full of goodies! Five runners up will also receive hampers and a special photo shoot for their family and pet.

Joe Inglis comments, “This is a brilliant competition to reward those pet owners that go above and beyond. FRONTLINE has pets’ best interests at heart and wants to make sure they always get the best care possible, after all, they are one of the family! So calling all dedicated pet owners, make sure you enter this competition, you have to be in it to win it!”

The UK’s Most Dedicated Pet Owner competition coincides with the peak in flea activity that occurs throughout the summer. Monthly treatment with FRONTLINE Spot On will help protect pets from fleas (and ticks), allowing them to enjoy the outdoors, explore or simply lounge around, while owners can be reassured that any nasties they pick up will be killed quickly. FRONTLINE Spot On will also help keep fleas out of the home when used throughout the year.

The competition closes on 10th September 2014, so you still have plenty of time to work on your entry and please do not forget to forget to treat your pet against fleas and ticks.
