So we are into week six of the first half term. As I’m sure is fairly normal my daughter set off to school on the first day of term with a wardrobe of new uniform. As each school year starts I iron in the name labels and she is packed off each day with all she needs. I like to think that I am a mum that has my shit together. Generally I remember if it is Non-Uniform Day, if she needs 50p for a bake sale or if she has to make an intestine for her homework. I don’t know why it is important to me that she arrives at school each morning without looking like she has not been dragged through a hedge on the way in but it is.
My daughter has many amazing qualities. She is strong willed, opinionated and caring. She will try most things and knows her own mind. She will not however manage to maintain some level of acceptable presentation at the end of the school day. Other children come out looking smart and well dressed. Not my child. She looks like she has been in a wind tunnel that sprays various foods at you. She often comes out without a cardigan. She has managed to lose two already. She has managed to get holes in four pairs of tights. Her uniform usually tells me more about her day than she will. There are many things I have learnt since becoming a school mum. Label everything, have a spare. Have a spare of the spare. Put anything that is needed for the next day next to the front door. List anything on the calendar as soon as you know about it. Have an amazing stain remover!!
ACE for Colours and ACE Stain Remover Spray make me feel like I am winning at mumlife. ACE Stain Remover Spray tackles all of the stains that school life brings. Clay, mud, food, pen, grass. All of them are welcome in my house. I may grumble sometimes when we are missing a shoe or a cardigan but I do realise how lucky I am that she enjoys learning. I know that all of the marks and scuffs are signs of play and learning and I wouldn’t have her any other way. One of the things we say when there is yet another item covered in something is ‘it will wash’ because really it will. Now I may not be ironing uniform at the six week point but her clothes and those pesky white socks will remain clean and bright and as good as they were on the first day of term thanks to ace.
• ACE keeps garments bright, robust and clean meaning clothes last for longer
• Keep those colours bright and fresh with ACE for Colours
• Tackle germs, grease and stubborn stains with ACE Stain Remover
It’s also great to use on delicate items too. Obviously it’s essential that the teddies have an audience whilst being washed just to be sure. They were all fine and the ace helped get them sparking clean.
