Recently something has been driving me crazy. At nearly 39 weeks pregnant, the nesting instinct has kicked in in a big way, it’s totally insatiable and persistent and to be honest it’s driving me mad. Since having Darcie and becoming the stay at home parent, I have naturally become quite house proud. If we have visitors and the house is untidy or unclean, we all know who is going to get the blame! To be honest, I also don’t think I’ve actually stopped nesting since Darcie was born. My house is in no way pristine but I do make an effort to keep it presentable as much as I can around the demands of a toddler.
During my first pregnancy when the nesting instinct kicked in I was able to make the house absolutely spotless and it stayed that way so I was able to bring my brand new baby home to a clean and tidy house. This time around it’s a little different. Now I have a tiny whirlwind that lives in my house and, as cute as she is, she does make it totally impossible to keep the house at the level of cleanliness and order that I would like. I spend my days going round in circles, cleaning one room and moving onto another only to come back and find that Hurricane Darcie has totally wrecked room number one. I don’t think there is really a way round this, it’s just how life is with a toddler, but I have been trying to find little ways to make my domestic chores a little bit easier.
One thing that has made a big difference recently has been my discovery of ACE cleaning products. When they offered to send me a bundle to try, I couldn’t help but laugh that they somehow knew that new cleaning products were exactly what I, and my house, needed! They sent me four products which are:
ACE Power Mousse – Combining the might of bleach with ACE cleaning power, the ACE Power Mousse works hard to keep household surfaces and white laundry bright and clean.
ACE Multi-Purpose Spray – For tackling germs, grease and stubborn stains, ACE Multi-Purpose Spray is suitable for use around the home and on coloured clothes.
ACE for Whites – Specifically formulated to work better on lighter fabrics; ACE for Whites helps brighten dull whites while still being gentle on delicate clothes.
ACE for Colours – The original ACE fabric stain remover that makes all fabric colours shine. ACE for Colours has been specially formulated to remove the toughest of stains and yet be gentle on even the most delicate clothes. It is great for everyday use and removes typical “dingy” dirt caused by soil and mud. It also helps to prevent fabric colours bleeding or transferring to other fabrics. ACE for Colours can be used on silk, wool and is even safe to use on cashmere!
I’ve been using ACE for Colours and for Whites in my laundry for a few weeks now and they’ve actually made a huge difference especially when it comes to removing stains from the toddler’s clothes. I put a cap full in the machine and set it to pre-wash and it totally saves me having to leave the clothes to soak beforehand or to get scrubbing with the stain remover. The two sprays are my favourite products. They are completely multi purpose so I use them for everything from wiping down the kitchen sides, scrubbing stains off the sofa and cleaning the bathrooms. You really can’t go wrong with these – unless you forget which one contains bleach and spray it onto a blue dress, which I only did once, and I totally blame that on the baby brain!
But, I’m not just here to tell you how much easier my cleaning routine is now that these products have entered my life, I’m also here to let you know that you can win your very own bundle too! ACE are kindly giving TWO of my readers a bundle of these four products, all you have to do is follow the links below to enter. There are multiple entry requirements and each one you complete will give you an extra entry to the giveaway. This is open to UK residents only and will close on 22/06/18 when I will notify the winner (unless I’m having a baby in which case you just need to cut me some slack!).
