Recently my baby has started eating food in her highchair and the white straps on it look a little worse for wear covered in food stains so I disconnected them and put them in a bowl with hot water and vanish and after 20 minutes of soaking they're like new again!

Here's a tip, don't believe the Vanish advert. The socks that they show at the end of the advert are clearly a brand new pair and not the ones that were supposedly put in soak and then washed in the machine. How do they get away with it?

Filthy oven shelves, if left to soak in strong solution of Vanish and hot water, with a gentle rub with soft cloth or sponge, come up like new. Good for barbecue racks too.

I love my powder foundation but it does seem to end up everywhere! It's so annoying when it goes on my white towels or my pillow case. What I've found really works is pre-treating the stain by making a paste out of the Vanish White powder and warm water and rubbing it. I leave it for a little bit then pop it in the wash with my other whites and another scoop ...

I had just bought a pair of white shorts and wore them to a party with red lipstick. Bad idea. Needless to say I came back with red lipstick on my shorts. I was devastated because they were brand new but remembering the Vanish Tip Exchange I found a tip that worked for me. Simply run the stain under warm->hot water then work in a small scoop of Vanish Oxi-Action Crystal White. ...

I had just bought a pair of white shorts and wore them to a party with red lipstick. Bad idea. Needless to say I came back with red lipstick on my shorts. I was devastated because they were brand new but remembering the Vanish Tip Exchange I found a tip that worked for me. Simply run the stain under warm->hot water then work in a small scoop of Vanish Oxi-Action Crystal White. Keep adding more Vanish and working it in to form a paste and watch the lipstick stain disappear! Leave the Vanish paste on the shorts for 15 minutes and then wash out (it is very important to wash out the Vanish that could otherwise erode the fabric if left). If the stain is not completely gone then add extra Vanish to your whites wash and put the stained item in. Thanks so much Vanish!

Spilt some curry oil on my delicate chiffon blouse. Took it off and rubbed with Vanish Gold. Let it stand and then wash on normal settings. Completely gone.

I have ink spots on a football shirt, does anyone know what I can do to get them out? I have tried the spray, no success. I have also tried making a paste of the Oxy and that didn't work either. My son is distraught, it is his favourite football shirt.

My cat has turned into a killer and likes to kill mice in the dining room leaving behind blood stains etc. Apart from getting rid of the cat are there any suggestions. I have tried the large bag of cleaner, but this has not touched many of the stains.

Try popping a dishwasher tablet in your wash load. They fetch oils and grease and other stains out too.
