Sponsored Post: Vanish

Vanish have asked me to write a post about their products. I actually already use Vanish and have done ever since I started buying my own clothes, when my parents gave me a clothing allowance when I was 13. I remember my mum teaching me to use that little bar of soap to remove stains, and it was a constant in my cleaning cupboard, especially as a student.

These days I use the oxi action powder and the whitening version, a scoop in with my whites and towels. Looking today at the Vanish website however, I was interested to note that they have a handy table for different types of stains, not only recommending the best of their products to deal with the specific issue but also useful advice on using the product. I was particularly interested in the advice on tea stains and red wine stains, as these are by far and above the two problems I deal with most. Only yesterday I was removing a tea stain from a duvet cover after laughing too much whilst eating my breakfast in bed and slopping tea over my favourite Toast striped duvet cover.

Still here, still pregnant

My brain has shrunk to the size of a walnut. Between organising our new flat, preparing for Pip's arrival, attending appointments and stockpiling sleep, I don't really feel I've had time to achieve anything. Certainly not the time for writing and blogging that I hoped I would have. Which isn't to say that I'm abandoning this space. I am still thinking about writing, it's just I've not yet managed to get my thoughts out. In the meantime, I have been writing over at thelittlepip, which is much more a sort of diary of being pregnant, but it's where you can find me more frequently than here, these days.
