It has to be said that with the increased amount of sunlight comes an increased awareness of the sheer level of dinginess that abounds in Chez Hobbis.
Those of us with kids (or sports playing partners) know only too well that battling laundry stains, smelly trainers and sinks covered from car part grease or bicycle chains can be a tad tiring.

Not only that but Ieuan has just started Allstars Cricket for the Under 8’s and we’re mulling over tennis lessons for Caitlin – grass stains a-plenty on the horizon!
But with a bit of help from ACE and their sustainable stain removal products, at least you can do battle with the grime in an environmentally friendly way.
|Ace For Whites, Ace For Colours & Ace Multi-Purpose|
ACE has designed laundry products to reduce the impact on the environment and they say the most important things we should be doing are:-
– Washing at lower temperatures
– Using concentrated products
– Using the right amount of product
– Washing with full loads
Of these, washing at lower temperatures is the single most important thing we can do to lower our C02 emissions while doing our laundry.
I tried three Ace products.
Ace For Whites
This is a laundry bleach with a fibre protection system which has been specifically formulated to work better on lighter fabrics. It helps to brighten dull whites while still being gentle on delicate clothes. It did the job nicely on Ieuan’s Tae Kwon-Do whites.
Ace For Colours
As with Ace For Whites, this is designed to be as gentle as possible on your clothes. It is fine for everyday use and gets rid of stains such as mud. At the moment Ieuan needs a clean pair of school trousers every day due to his new found love of footie.
Ace For Colours will also help to prevent fabric colours bleeding or transferring to other fabrics and you can use it with silk, wool and even cashmere.
Ace Multi-Purpose Spray
You can use ACE Multi-Purpose Spray around the home and on coloured clothes and it’s great for tackling germs, grease and stubborn stains. It did a lovely job of degreasing my kitchen sink.
To find out more about Ace products, have a look at their website www.acecleanuk.co.uk. There’s also lots of advice on stain removal and some helpful videos to show you exactly what to do. Great for housekeeping duffers like me.
