Suede going out shoes stained with black marks? Scrub with a rubber brush then a soft brush to removed dried dirt then apply a scoop of gold vanish into a bowl with warm water and with a nail brush scrub the marks off. Leave dry throughout before wear.

If you have a stone sink and it is not as clean as it should be, fill the sink overnight with water and put in two or three spoonfuls of Vanish Powder and by next morning your sink will loose all its ingrained dirt and look as good as new

Two antique decanters were stained over the course of years with the residue of red wine. Two scoops of vanish dissolved in warm water, swilled round and left for half an hour. Result - shining glass inside and out ! Brilliant.

Not sure if anyone tried this but, the bottom of the toilet bowl was darkened due to limescale etc and nothing removed it, including bleach. I emptied 2 scoops of vanish powder and poured kettle boiled water slowly and left it for about half an hour. Gave it a gentle rub with toilet brush and it was gone! Couldn't believe the simple solution to that embarrassing matter was sitting in the cupboard ...

To get tough sweat stain marks of your pillow cases, soak them in Vanish Bright White for 4 hours and then add a scoop with your washing powder on the cycle and it gets it bright white and looking brand new again!

does anyone know how to remove the stains that baby formula makes when it comes back up. My lil man has reflux so don't know if the acid causes the stins to be worse. Some are yellow and some just seem to leave a patch but similar to the colour if clothing.

Took my 2 year old to messy church yesterday, but didn't quite realise how messy it would be, and he was wearing his lovely fleece top and trousers. He managed to get black acrylic paint all over him and his clothes before I knew what was happening. The paint has come out of him, but not out of his clothes. I put them to soak in cold water as soon as I could after we got home, but the stains were already dry. Any suggestions, please help as I love him in these particular clothes.
