My Washing Hell!

We have a LOT of washing to do, mainly because I have so many clothes that's true, but also because we are a family of what's known as "one wears". That is, people who don't take care and can only wear an item of clothing for one day before it has to be washed. I am sure that before I had children I could comfortably wear a pair of jeans for a week before having to wash them. This, inevitably, takes it toll on the amount of washing I have to do. It mounts up and up until I just don't know what to do with it all!

The worst is, what to do with it once it's washed. We don't have a tumble dryer, the reason is that I think they are too noisy and I don't really know where we would put it. I do wish we had one though, I really wish it in fact.

Here is a picture of our hung up clothes, and the ironing basket is in the background. It's overwhelming, I really don't know how other people manage their washing, where do they put it all?

The washing from hell.
A few weeks ago, I was sent some Vanish Stain Removal to try out, to see if this would solve my woes. One of the problems I have is that I find it difficult to get stains out of white clothes, I normally don't bother buying whiteners as I don't like spending money on stuff like that.
I have to admit that with the non whitener one, I couldn't really tell a difference, mainly because I don't think any of our clothes were actually stained enough for it to have an impact. The Crystal White Vanish, was however a different story. The way it works is that you had a scoop of it to your normal wash, I just popped it in the machine with the clothes. I noticed an impact straight away, it got stains right out more importantly, everything was whiter than white, like on the adverts on TV! Perfect!

I really recommend the Vanish Crystal White if you like your sheets and baby vests nice and white. My son's school uniform unfortunately has a blue shirt rather than a white so I was unable to test it on that, but I'm assuming it would be just as good!

These products were sent to me for review, but all thoughts are my own.
