Anyone will tell you that most baby food it orange, and it stains... very easily. When I went on holiday last week I thought to pack a vanish bar in the nappy bag for treating stains whilst we were out, that way they'd be treated as soon as possible and more likely to come out. I just nip in to the nearest public toilet to do it. Baby clothes saved! I have ...

Spilled a cup of coffee over my white jeans whilst out. By the time I got home the coffee had dried. I put them in a bucket with a scoop of vanish gold for about 30 mins then washed them in the machine. The results ate perfect.

moving house is no easy task especially when you notice that your carpets really could do with a good clean. with one day before i was set to hand the keys back on my rented property and an empty house i decided to rent a carpet cleaner. after almost falling off my chair at the cost of rental and then detergent on top i was told there were none available. i proceed to ring around other companies but again was told there were none available. was everyone in liverpool cleaning their carpets at the same time???? anyway i ran to my local supermarket in the hope i would find something that might help. then i spotted it VANISH POWER POWDER! the reassuring flash of pink, i thought this has to work. i purchased my VANISH POWER POWDER a snip at only £7 compared to the silly prices of the big heavy cleaning machine and rushed home to get to work. upon reading the instructions i was dubious when it said it works in 20 mins, these after all were some quite heavy stains (one 30th birthday party/BBQ when it rained and a few puppy toilet training mishaps) but i set to it none the less, shaking the VANISH POWER POWDER with its handy resealable built in dispenser into roughly a 1 meter square before brushing it to the carpet with a soft bristle brush. no need to add water either which saves time and effort. i repeated the process until my whole dinning room carpet had been covered and brushed, about 3 sq meters, and waited the recommended 20 mins still not sure as to if this would actually work. After exactly 20 mins i started to vacuum the first section i treated and was amazed with the results. as i vacuumed more and more of the carpet it was almost as if i had put down a new one. There was a small section right by the patio door which saw heavy traffic that was still slightly visible, but still a thousand times better than it had been. i was so pleased with the results and it smelt great. whats more i could walk on it straight away and not have to wait for it to dry. what i thought was going to be a boring, heavy and time consuming task turned out to be quick, easy and dare i say an enjoyable little job which left me the rest of the day to get cracking on the new house. whats more when the inventory came back the box LIKE NEW was ticked about my carpet. saved me a small fortune. i love this product so much i will continue to use it for when my carpets need a quick freshen up, and would advise anyone, everyone with a carpet to give it a go.

I used vanish oxi action on my dirty net curtain. I put my normal washing powder and fabric softener plus one scoop of vanish powder on a 60 degree wash. They come out like brand new. Thanks vanish your a life saver.

When cleaning a coffee flask, no need to wait overnight. Put the flask in the sink, add a scoop o Vanish in the flask and add boiling water. The kids will love this, it reacts just like a volcano!!! And cleans perfectly!!

On my way to work one morning, having dressed in my best cotton tunic for a meeting later that day, I was rudely struck on my right shoulder by a large avian missile. Unperturbed by the event, I returned home and deposited the fouled garment in my washing machine with a cup full of Vanish Gold and a portion of my regular washing liquid, which to avoid endorsing another brand I shall refer to here as Versil. On returning home, my dress was completely devoid of bird excrement and smelt wonderful. Top tip.

my husband suffers from psoriasis and scratches himself in his sleep. some mornings the sheets look like a scene from texas chainsaw massacre! simply covered in blood. I didn't believe it would work, but one scoop of vanish oxy action in the washing machine and the stains have gone and I mean really gone, not a sign of them can't believe how good this stuff is.

Leaky nappies? Soaked the clothes in a bowl or water and vanish for a few mins and the stain was completely gone, not only that vanish power left the clothes extra white and clean without me even putting then into the washer :) serious recommend this to all parents and for only £6 for a litre tub is a must have :)

I went to get my clutch bag out for an upcoming wedding and although it was boxed it has turned a dull white and yellow in places. Is their anything vanish can do? You an not really see from the photo but it is now a dull white with hints of yellow. Obviously I can't put it in a washing machine. Any ideas?

Hello, I've recently got wood oil on my shirt, and I've tried different things that has failed to work. I was wondering if any of you probably more 'experienced' people would have a suggestion on how to remove it?

Thanks in advance

I washed some items in vanish and hung them to dry over my oak table treated with oil, unfortunately the vanish dripped onto the table and left a large brown stain. Any ideas how to remove the stain without sanding down the table.
