Vanish for Baby Clothes

The miracle of parenthood means you get to watch your little one become a person in their own right. However, when babies grow at such a rapid rate, it’s common for them to go through an enormous amount of clothes in a very small space of time. No need to fret though, as you can use Vanish on your baby clothes to extend their lifespan and spend more time with your child and less time worrying about the washing!

For the best results on your little one’s clothes, you simply have to add Vanish along with your usual baby detergent to every wash. For coloured clothes, use Vanish Gold Oxi Action Powder or Vanish Gold Oxi Action Stain Removal Gel and for your whites, use Vanish Gold Oxi Action Crystal White Powder

How to wash coloured baby clothes

Your baby’s skin is delicate so it’s always best to give any new, store-bought clothes a wash before you dress them. Because Vanish is safe to use on baby clothes, it’s a super simple process; for coloured clothes, just add a scoop of Vanish Gold Oxi Action Stain Removal Powder or a dose of Vanish Gold Oxi Action Stain Removal Gel to every load.

Simply follow the instructions below:

  1. Add one scoop of the Vanish powder or a 60ml dose of Vanish gel to your detergent washing machine drawer.
  2. Wash as usual with your regular detergent or a baby-friendly detergent.

Important: Always follow the usage instructions on the packaging and the garment. If you’re unsure, patch test on a small, inconspicuous area before full use.

How to wash white baby clothes

Miniature white hats, socks and baby grows are not only a lovely neutral colour for babies, but they look adorable, too. Now, thanks to Vanish Gold Oxi Action Crystal White Powder, they can stay that way no matter what you and your baby go though. The tough but gentle Oxi Action formula cleans and whitens clothes during the wash, so your baby can wear those bright whites again and again – or, at least until they grow out of them!

Simply follow the instructions below:

  1. Add one scoop of the Vanish powder or a 60ml dose of Vanish gel to your detergent washing machine drawer.
  2. Wash as usual with your regular detergent or a baby- friendly detergent.

For baby clothes that are no stranger to the washing machine and have dulled over time, why not give them a soak to restore their brilliance? It’s easy to do a large batch of clothes, too; simply add a scoop of Vanish powder or a 60ml dose of gel to 4L of warm or cold water (max 40°). Leave the items to soak for a maximum of 1 hour for coloured clothes or 6 hours for whites. Then, wash them following the steps above.

Tips

Au Naturel: A natural fabric like cotton is the best material for baby bedding and clothes as they are soft and gentle on their delicate skin. Equally important for a parent, is that natural fabrics are also easier to wash and dry – so everyone is happy!
