As James just went into Year One, we’ve had a full year of tackling stains on his school uniform. Some of the stains I was able to take in my stride, while others had me running into the Facebook school mums’ group discussing the best stain removal techniques. I was curious about Ace bleach, never having tried it before, and when I was offered the chance to take part in the #aceforschool challenge, I decided to give it a try.
Ace Gentle Soft Bleach is a liquid bleach that removes stains and allows you to have better overall washing while being gentle on colours and fabrics. Ace Gentle Soft Bleach is for hand wash as well as machine wash.
James’ school uniform is a coloured jumper, grey trousers and a white polo shirt. I have to question if the person who came up with this uniform has 1, ever done their own washing, and 2, ever had a child. Because we do not have enough white clothes in the rest of the laundry pile to have an exclusively white load very often. I’ve had to buy 5 white shirts so that he’s got clean tops when he needs them. I feel that mixing the colours in with the whites is asking for trouble, or at least asking for grim grey polo tops.
Mostly the stains James gets on his clothes are from his school dinners, which he loves. The washing machine and biological washing powder soon make light work of that kind of messes. I haven’t seen many messes that need something else on top, until the week after I was sent Ace! James arrived home with some mysterious splodges on his red sweatshirt. Rob declared the top “ruined”.
However, I squirted on Ace feeling all positive. I also filled the dosing cap with Ace and poured the product directly into the drum, on top of the laundry, and then started the wash immediately.
Sadly, this time, a stubborn stain has been left behind. I’m not sure what the source of the mark was, or how to get it out, but I have tried with Ace! I suspect it is some kind of grease, which won’t be cancelled out by bleach.
