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 :)

someone spilled candlewax on a satin ornate Christmas runner so I ironed out the surplus wax through absorbent paper then was left with a pink stain. I soaked the runner in VANISH and all traces of the stain have gone. VANISH is brilliant!

If you happen to burn your saucepans or cookware by letting them boil dry, just add about a teaspoon of Vanish powder to saucepan and just cover with water and leave to soak overnight---it just falls off the next day, it works on stainless steel/ enamel / pyrex / Bev from Basildon

I was abit gutted my white converse had turned a brown colour from mud and dirt, so I thought id give vanish a try. First I made a paste and used an old toothbrush and rubbed it into my shoes then left them for an hour before rinsing it off. I then put them in a bucket to soak with a scoop of vanish and after a couple of hours gave them one last scrub then left them to dry on the radiator. Wasn't expecting them to be perfect but wow they look as good as new

My little ones always come home from nursery with their clothes in nappy bags covered in their food from lunch time by which time it's all dried in and crusty... So it's hot water and vanish gold mixed to a paste and rubbed into the stain and a little thrown into the wash for good measure, and thankfully or it would cost me a fortune in clothes the food stains are gone!!!

washable items; rinse in cold water, never warm, until blood is removed then wash as normal. non-washable; sponge with cold water with a dabbing action, changing to clean water often. Absorb with kitchen towel and leave to dry.

My partner regularly uses Vanish on his white business shirts and usually with excellent results. Unfortunately he left the Vanish on his collar for longer than usual before turning on the washing machine - could have been about 30 minutes. The collars now have cream splodges on them and they're no longer wearable. Accepting that the instructions say don't leave the laundry items for too long before washing - can you recommend ...

My partner regularly uses Vanish on his white business shirts and usually with excellent results. Unfortunately he left the Vanish on his collar for longer than usual before turning on the washing machine - could have been about 30 minutes. The collars now have cream splodges on them and they're no longer wearable. Accepting that the instructions say don't leave the laundry items for too long before washing - can you recommend any action we can take to get rid of these cream staines? If not - do you think we can dye the shirts - what would be the effect of the cream stains on a retail dye product?

I bought a £30 top for an interview and the first day I wore it, I stained it. Accidentally sprayed Dior perfume on it and now I have 3 stains. Washed it and it hasn't gone. The stains look like the top has three wet patches... Any tips on removing them? Thanks in advance!
