Review: Vanish Oxi Action

It never fails to amaze me how a baby so little can create SO MUCH dirty laundry.

Since Alexander's arrival, I have been pooed on, spewed on and peed on so many times that it no longer fazes me. But the one thing I'm pedantic about is stain removal and making sure everything is properly disinfected and clean. So when the lovely people at Vanish asked if I would like to trial and review their washing products, I immediately said yes.
I remember vividly the first time Alexander did a poo so big it spilled over the sides of his nappy and onto my top! Yup - I had bright mustard yellow newborn baby poo all over my top. It stained my top so badly I was convinced it was destined for the bin but since I had the Vanish products at hand, I thought it wouldn't hurt to try removing the stain.

After scraping the poo off (lovely, I know), I liberally sprayed the stain with Vanish Preen Oxi Action Trigger, left it on for a few minutes and then soaked it in the NapiSan Oxi Action Powder for a few hours before washing as usual. Sunlight is a wonderful natural disinfectant, so I made sure to hang the top out in the sun to dry. The stain disappeared completely. Vanish worked that time and all the times subsequently. What joy!

You don't need to be a parent to appreciate the stain removing effectiveness of Vanish products. There are many more stains that Vanish can remove, for example, blood stains and food stains - even red wine stain.

Trishie are you trying to put me off Motherhood, lol lol!! I'm a disability support worker and we go through the powder like crazy but everything always comes out great :) I'm always shocked that the colours of the clothes stay intact too!

I just used some of the oxi action spray this evening on a fave jacket. Truly, it is a miracle worker! Hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Hi Trishie,

I know exactly what you are saying and it would often be when baby and I were all dressed up and ready to go out.
I have some of the Oxi Vanish and it is wonderful to have on hand.
happy day
hugs

Hah, I love that you wrote about it. I don't know if they have Vanish here but I'm going to look for it because I spill and drop everything and could use something like this!

That's awesome that it gets out so many stains! No baby poo around here, but I have been pooped on by many chickens so I'll keep this product in mind! :)

I've heard of this brand and in an emergency situation, I would not hesitate to buy their products.

I think we've all encountered instances when we need a good stain remover.
