Dettol Laundry Cleanser & Aden & Anais giveaway!

With little ones around, bacteria is a big concern.

Tyne doesn't have a comfort blanket himself but my 4 year old niece has been so attached to her Nee Nee since she was a tiny baby, and finds comfort in sucking it.

Obviously comfort blankets are great but the germ aspect can be a big concern.

I've been using Dettol Laundry Cleaner in every wash for a while now and it really puts my mind at rest knowing that Tyne's clothes are bacteria free, and I suggested it to my sister for use on Lottie's Nee Nee....Lottie really notices when her Nee Nee is washed as it smells and feels different but since using Dettol she hasn't complained of this as it's very gentle but yet so effective at removing the threat of bacteria.

Pixie McKenna (presenter of Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies) who is a GP and a mum recently spoke about the problems with washing our clothes at low temperatures which isn't killing bacteria and is in fact encouraging a 'bacterial soup' inside our washing machines....yuk!

To make sure all of the bacteria in our laundry is killed there are two options, wash at a higher temperature, which is not always possible as a lot of modern fabrics can't withstand high temperatures or use a laundry disinfectant like Dettol Laundry Cleanser which kills 99.9% of bacteria even at 30°C.

If you want to banish your child's blanket bacteria for good, just follow these steps.

  1. Use Dettol Laundry Cleanser in every wash to kill 99.9% of bacteria.
  2. Avoid cross contamination when someone in your family is ill by washing their clothes and bedding separately.
  3. Clean your washing machine by running a 90°C cycle once a month, wipe down the seals and the detergent drawer with an anti-bacterial surface cleanser and leave the door open after each wash to keep it fresh and reduce mould growth.

Of course if you want to try Dettol out for yourself, you'll need something soft and delicate to try it on....what better than a beautiful Aden & Anais Musy Mate worth £19.99 each?
 Luckily I have TEN to give away! To be in with a chance of winning one, just complete the Rafflecopter form below!
