This week I have been working with Ace as part of the #ACEWinterRefresh Challenge. As summer is now over Ace are helping to refresh wardrobes as we bring out the autumn and winter clothes after they have been packed away for six months. The Ace for Colours Powder reinvigorates clothes, has amazing stain removing powers and has some magical technology that brings colours back to their original vibrant way!! Alongside that the packaging is all recyclable. Unusual for a stain remover.
As you know if you have been around on either my blog or Instagram I love a wardrobe sort out. The beginning of each season is marked with a clear out of all areas of my house. We are really lucky to have the space to store out of season clothes in a spare room. I love to swap out summer and winter clothes and see what I need to purchase or what no longer fits.
I begin each cleanup and organisation with emptying the area to clean, if that is kitchen cupboards it all comes out onto the side, under stairs cupboard all into the hall. I think to properly clean and organise an area you need to be able to see it empty and work out how many of each thing you have. If I try and sort without emptying the area I find I am not as thorough. So for clothes I empty the wardrobe entirely. I sort as I go, piles to keep, store, charity and recycle. I also have a pile to try on. I find it easiest to clear out the things to store – so for next summer. I keep things hung in the spare room and I also have a small suitcase that I keep holiday clothes in. Once they have gone out of the room (clothes mountain on the bed) I have the current season’s items back to add to the mountain.
I didn’t rewash everything as they were cleaned before being put into storage but I do wash anything that I am going to give to charity. So Ace for Colours got a good test with the summer clothes being packed up and the clothes being sent off.
I really enjoyed testing out the Ace for Colours. With a moto of ‘its ok it will wash’ in our house it was put to the test with some touch stains, mud and grass, ketchup and the sauce of an Indian. All of them were cleaned off. Much better than our usual stain remover. It also made school shirts and socks really white.
The little metal pourer on the side makes it easy to add to your washing. It is also possible to make it into a paste for heavy stains.
