Take a nice big deep tray, add a scoop of vanish, dissove. Add your wire oven shelves. Wait two hours and the grease will come off easily with a rough cloth. No more scrubbing and chipping away, no matter how bad they are!

2 brand new white cotton polo shirts accidentally made their way into a coloureds wash. 1 was inside a red sweatshirt and was stained red and the other just went grey from our hard water. i went out and spent the best part of a tenner on vanish because of their promise to make items of clothing 3 shades whiter. after soaking the shirts in vanish crystal white and warm water for the recommended 6 hours i put them in a wash on their own for the recommended 40 oc wash with a scoop in the drawer and one in the drum. no difference... they are still stained. so i did it again only this time at 6 hours i replaced the solution and put it in again overnight then again in the washer 1 scoop in the drum, 1 scoop in the drawer. they are still stained no change what so ever even with me scrubbing them whilst in the vanish. went out bought bleach for £1 i just put some in a bucket with water 10 minutes ago and already the stains are starting to go. biggest waste of money ever. id have been cheaper off buying a new 2 pack of polo shirts.

I have a few tips.... I rather doubt my post will appear but, just in case................ I am talking about Vanish Gold for all stains, not just whites. 1. Despite the TV ads this product does not form a paste - even after 12 hours soaking the powder in water. 2. A scoop in a white wash causes no problems, though neither did I see any results I didn't get with even ...

I have a few tips.... I rather doubt my post will appear but, just in case................ I am talking about Vanish Gold for all stains, not just whites. 1. Despite the TV ads this product does not form a paste - even after 12 hours soaking the powder in water. 2. A scoop in a white wash causes no problems, though neither did I see any results I didn't get with even Aldi's washing powder 3. BUT, on NO ACCOUNT add a scoop to your regular washing powder if you are washing coloured fabrics. I had a new pair of trousers with a grease mark after a meal out. Now dotted with bleach spots. Worn just once. £40 wasted! 4. The claim "the stain has almost gone after 30 seconds" hasn't worked in this household. Coffee and other stains remain. Though I think the old Vanish spray would have dealt with them! As I say, I doubt my post will find it's way through the "positive marketing campaign" and this website. But I've copied my comments and will paste them to Facebook.

Blackberries! Stained my fingers and nails. Small Bowl, hot water, half scoop vanish, leave to cool, dip fingers in and leave for about 5 mins. Nails, and fingers very clean. No stains. Rinse hands thoroughly then apply hand lotion. No scrubbing needed, brilliant.

New cleaning method! Blackberries, freshly picked, slowly boiled in saucepan. Stained saucepan. Filled saucepan with hot water, added one scoop of vanish, left to soak. Hey presto one very clean saucepan. See before and after photos. Brilliant. I have used these saucepans everyday for over 20 years.

Wash with shampoo (any will do -including very cheap ones) - then scoop of Vanish in the machine and stain will completely go.

Can you answer these questions?

I have a navy polo shirt. There was 2 stains on it so I made a paste using a little water and the Vanish powder. Once I washed the polo shirt and took it out of the machine and it dried I noticed white powder stains on the front.
