Allow me to introduce myself. I am the new (slightly older in other places !) resident cleaning expert for The Vintage Wash House.

Her indoors (the boss, Linda) has given me the job of keeping you all up to date with how to use our fantastic traditional cleaning products.

I’ll start off with a brilliant tip for getting rid of stains such as chocolate, blood, tomato juice etc. Simply dampen the stained area with water, then get to work with a block of our traditional soap (either household green soap or pink carbolic). Work around the stain with the soap in circular motions and keep dampening the area until the stain disappears, then pop into the washing machine as usual. Simple !!

Catch up with me next time when I’ll be giving you lots more cleaning tips.

Cheerio for now xx
