Tackling Those Back To School Stains with ACE

In a blink of an eye the summer holidays are over. It has been one adventurous summer jam packed full of great times, good friends and amazing memories. But like all good things they must come to an end. Whether you have been counting down the days to September or wish summer could be a little longer its time for back to school. 

My daughter's first day back to school was great and she couldn't wait to tell me all about her first day back. They painted, they played, they ate lunch and did crafts in the afternoon. Great first day back, right? That was until got home to take her coat off and I found little red doodles all over her arms and her SHIRT. My daughter's teacher allowed the little ones loose with felt tip pens. FELT TIP PENS ON THE FIRST DAY BACK. And a RED on at that. Now as a parent to a fiesty little five year old I guess I kind of expected some kind of mishap with her uniform, but I never expected to be dealing with stains on the first day back to school. I'm a little dubious about how her uniform will look after the first time.

But despite her little mishap with the felt pens she enjoyed first week back at school. A new classroom, a new teacher, lots of new children and more of a scheduled day instead of just play. I am more than sure if reception is anything to go by that she will come home with stains, marks, paint splatters and mucky hands. But honestly what is it with little ones coming home covered in something or another. It was never this bad when she was a nursery or pre-school and considering she is older you would have thought she would be better. Oh no, sometimes she looks as if she has been living in a bush for three days after a day at school.

But this year I want to try and be as prepared as I can to tackle those stains and marks. Stains are inevitable. But that doesn't mean you have to toss out their uniform with the first sign of a stain or mark. With stain removal we have tried our fair share of products that are available, we like to keep a range of products on hand under our kitchen sink to combat those tougher stains. Our favourite stain removals are from ACE as they are affordable for everyone and they get rid of those stains completely. There is nothing worse in investing time and pennies for something that shortfalls its purpose. 

We have always used ACE for Colours stain remover as it is so handy to add to a your normal wash cycle. ACE for Colours has been specially formulated to remove the toughest of stains and yet be gentle on even the most delicate clothes. It is great for everyday use and removes typical dirt caused by soil and mud. It also helps to prevent fabric colours bleeding or transferring to other fabrics. So we always have a stash of this under our kitchen cupboard, however we have been introduced to a couple of other products from ACE that I know I will help tackle those stubborn stains.

This ACE for Colours Powder which is basically the same stain remover as ACE for Colours in a powder form with a fully-recycable cardboard box. This little handy box also included as little metal dispenser to make your stain removing process easy, however this was something that I didn't realise until I open the box at the top. 

My daughter loves creating her own artwork, and in turn most of this ends up on her school shirts. Paint splashes, felt tip pen, glue and glitter, always the glitter. So I have been searching high and low for a product that helps keep my whites WHITE. Is there anything worse than a dull school shirt? ACE for Whites is actually amazing, and I am not just saying that. I have never used any whitener that is as good as this little wonder bottle. The ACE for White has been formulated to work better on lighter fabrics; however never mix lights with any form of colour. For us, this was brilliant at getting my daughter red felt tip pen out of her shirt after her first day of school.

We also liked the ACE Stain Remover which is a spray bottle of stain remover with active oxygen. Personally I really like the idea of a spray remover as it can be so much easier to use than soaking or powder, this one is great for those tougher stains. All you do is spray directly on the stain and underneath the stain, leave for five minutes and then wash as normal.

I then tried the ACE Power Mousse, a great all rounder as it can be used on more than clothes! It is a spray bottle so you can just spray directly on to what you want to clean, simple. Our bathroom tiles needed a little love this week as we all got back to some kind of normality meaning a deep clean throughout. Our bathroom tiles needed a steam and cleanse as this ACE Power Mousse removed the staining on the grout with ease. It is perfect for fabrics and hard surfaces and also has odour masking technologies, leaving behind a fresh fragrance.

Overall, I think the ACE products have been fantastic. They have removed stains from our clothes and been great to use in our home too. These ACE products are definitely something that will help see me through the school year. Not only will they keep our clothes spotless, by having no stains and keeping the colours brighter our clothes will last longer which is exactly what we need with my daughter and her uniform.

  1. Erin's clothes get so dirty sometimes. This sounds great for removing stains.

  2. My mum would have killed for something like this growing up with me coming back from school everyday with grass stains all over my trousers lol

  3. They seem to come back completely rumpled and inky no matter what year they’re in. Mine is exactly the same - coming back with felt tip smears in all sorts of places. Ace sounds like a brilliant trick to have up your sleeve! I’ll have to look out for it 😊

    1. It seems the older she gets the more stains she has! Never got any of this when she was in nursery!

  4. They always come back with so many stains don't they - the pen marks can be the hardest to get out and for those you definitely need stain remover!

    1. Yes, I can handle most stains. But not felt tip. The other day she came back with red felt marks and then mud stains the day after.

  5. The sprays look so good to have around, way easier than having to soak things in a bucket for ages.

    1. That is pretty amazing! Its the one I will get again.

  6. Stains can be a real pain. It is much better to clean with a product than buy new, so this is great x

  7. We have used Ace products before and I love them! The one for whites is amazing and worked a treat when Leo used to have to wear white tops to school x

  8. With two smelly teens in our family we fight a losing battle with BO ... so will give this a try!
