I’m not sure how we got here, but Matilda has started school this year. I had been both dreading the day and been excited for her new adventure at the same time. The day came and off she went very happy and excited.
Nearly 4 weeks in and we have had a little wobble but on the whole she is loving school.
Me on the other hand, has been finding it a bit stressful. Getting us all out the house in the morning in a reasonable state (even though we are only 3 in this house), all the letters, admin and passwords has taken some getting used too.
Then comes the uniform. As I was fully expecting, especially as Matilda’s new school includes Forest school. Within a few days, pen, mud and paint all came home on the uniform.
It is a real test for any machine and detergent to remove stains and still keep the colours bright on that nice new uniform and mum and dad paid out for over the summer. Therefore when the ACE for school challenge came along it was a very welcome little helping hand.
I was sent a bottle of ACE for Colours and ACE Stain Remover Spray to review and test out on the numerous colourful school adventures our kids uniforms go through everyday at school.
ACE is designed to ;
- Keep garments bright, robust and clean meaning clothes last for longer
- Keep those colours bright and fresh with ACE for Colours
- Tackle germs, grease and stubborn stains with ACE Stain Remover
So here are a few before and after shots. Unfortunately we did not quite manage to remove all the green paint from the dress, however it had been well dried in by the time it was washed. I have to say everything else came out pretty ACE and the colours have stayed bright.
I don’t really mind if Matilda comes home looking like this, it shows that she has been busy and having fun. Especially in her first reception year.
Here’s to many more stains to be removed!
