With two boys, who are both growing like weeds, we go through a lot of clothes! James is barely out of his before Noah is ready for the next size up, and so there isn’t much time to pop James’ old stuff into storage.
But James is a messy eater and has a terrible habit of picking at the cuffs of his clothes, so it is usually only the trousers he passes on to his little brother. However, with the addition of ACE for Colours Powder in the washing machine drawer, James’ old t-shirts can be passed on to Noah.
The t-shirts with odd little pen marks on them have been totally revived by adding two tablespoons of powder into the washing machine drawer during a normal wash. ACE even works in a 30°C wash!
Because we had such success with the everyday stains of fruit and mud, I thought I would see how ACE rises to the challenge of dry-wipe markers. Dry-wipe markers are used by James’ school during Read, Write Inc. lessons, and I have found them impossible to remove from school jumpers.
I followed the instructions on the box for the pre-treatment and mixed one tablespoon with six tablespoons of warm water.
I left it on the stains for about five minutes, with a little rub of the back of the spoon to apply. Immediately after the pre-treatment, I popped the jumpers into the wash, and I was so pleased to discover that the dry-wipe marker stains were gone or significantly reduced!
That means we are able to pass on James’ school jumpers to the charity Community Clothing, or to other children and their families. James is joining Noah at his school soon, so we have two years of jumpers to pass on.
Ace for Colours Powder comes in a fully recyclable Tetra Pak so there’s no plastic – you don’t even get a little dosing spoon as you’ve got a tablespoon in your cutlery drawer already!
Use ACE in your daily wash to keep clothes looking fresher for longer.
Don’t forget, you can pick up the ACE product range, including ACE for Colours powder at your nearest Morrison’s store or buy online on Amazon.
