Well this is not one you hear every day vanish helped with successfully remove red lipstick from a white ostrich feather large fan. I soak the feather with the stain in a bowl for 45 minutes and then preened the fans feathers with a hairdryer for 25 minutes and the pair of fans now look like new again :)

I am a dressage rider who uses white protective boots on my horses during training. As these protective boots are white they collect and show a lot of grease from the horses legs, and grit, clay and soil from the area surfaces. So I use vanish on these boots to restore them to their as-new whiteness. I rub some of the vanish powder and warm water onto the stains and then leave ...

I am a dressage rider who uses white protective boots on my horses during training.

So I use vanish on these boots to restore them to their as-new whiteness. I rub some of the vanish powder and warm water onto the stains and then leave the boots to soak in a mix of vanish and warm water for 30mins, then into the washing machine on a spin cycle and hey-presto! Good as new! Also, vanish is so gentle that once I have washed the boots and then put them back on my horse's legs, even my most sensitive horses do not have a reaction to the product - an absolute bonus. I look Vanish!

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 ...

Can you answer these questions?

I wiped it with a damp cloth, soaked it for 15 minutes in stain remover, then soaked it again in Daz and stain remover for a total of 3 hours but it's still there. I don't know what else to do? Help? They are 50% wool and 50% polyester.

My Fencing Kit is gradually going off-white, and has brown/grey (colour-blind, so not sure) stains from the sweat, which has accumulated for years despite my carefully airing/washing my kit... Is Vanish safe for Fencing kit, or will it damage the zips/fabric?
