Well Summer is well and truly over, the temperature has certainly dropped over the last year weeks. It’s time to pack away our summer clothes and unpack our winter wardrobe! To be honest, I don’t have enough clothes or the space to keep summer and winter items separate, they all tend to stay in the wardrobe all year round. But not for the kids.
I have three young children (Joshua the eldest is 7) and to keep costs down, my children wear a lot of hand-me-down clothes. We buy socks, underwear and pyjamas brand new, plus they sometimes get clothes as presents from family for their birthdays. Other than that we reuse to save money and reduce waste.
I have three year old twins, Oscar and Isla. Oscar tends to wear a lot of his older brothers clothes that he has outgrown, similarly Isla gets given plenty of clothes from her older cousins. Before putting the clothes away to keep for the future, I make sure they’re clean and place into airlock bags. Me and my husband label them with who there for and what age, then we pop them in the loft.
Whilst packing away some of the kids summer clothes, I recently brought down a couple of bags of winter clothes. Although they were clean when I put them up in the loft, they were certainly in need of a freshen up!
That’s why I have taken part in the #ACEWinterRefresh Challenge, it was perfect for my family and I couldn’t wait to try out the products I got sent. ACE for Colours is an exciting new product with all of the stain removal technology as before, it keeps colours bright and fresh! Sounds perfect to bring the life back to my children’s winter clothes.
I sorted the bags from the loft and started to wash them in the washing machine using ACE for Colours…. and Ta Dah!! Clothes super fresh and as good as new! Clothes can be washed at 30 degrees which is fab, the powder can be used for whites and colours and it removes odours.
I love anything that helps keep our clothes lasting longer, perfect for our family. What I also love about ACE for Colours is that the packaging is completely recyclable! There’s no plastic at all, it is suggested that you use a normal teaspoon in your kitchen! Genius!
ACE for Colours will definitely help me freshen up my laundry this winter and in the future!
