My Children's Colourful School Adventures #ACEforschool

You may remember that a few weeks ago, I shared my top 5 tips for making breakfast time hassle free. My number one tip was for the boys to check their uniform the night before so I would do a quick wash if they didn't have any clean uniform. Having three young boys means that there are always mountains of washing in our house. Sometimes when I see their school polo tops I could actually cry. I mean what colourful adventures do they get up to at school? Their yellow tops are covered in stains.

Often I look at them trying to disguise my horror. "What have you been up to at school today?" I ask in astonishment that they are so dirty. 

"Um, I can't remember" is often the answer. 

"You can't remember? It is literally 3.15 and you have just walked out of the door." I say with a puzzled look on my face.

"Oh, I have an accident slip." 

"I gathered that from looking at your top" I say. Honestly, little man must be the clumsiest kid in the school. Barely a day goes by when he hasn't fallen over. On really bad occasions (more crying than usual) a sticker is provided. The school must know that I have become blind to all the incident slips so they pop it on just to make me aware of concussion!

Anyway, I digress, the boys aren't able to tell me where these stains come from. A trip to the park after school does enlighten me a bit. They seem to like skidding down hills on their stomachs. Digging in the dirt with their hands and dropping whatever they eat down themselves.

My laundry basket is over flowing, and the stains are everywhere. ACE have sent me some of their products to help me out. For the stubborn stains there is ACE Stain Remover and for keeping their yellow polo shirts bright, ACE Colours.

In my doubting way, I made sure I used some of the boys oldest and most stained shirts to test out the products. I was concerned they may bleach the coloured shirts, but they were fine. Some of the stains were so bad that I wouldn't have expected them to come out, but I now have the confidence to use the ACE for Colours on the new tops I have just bought. If I can keep them that bit cleaner from day one, it will just help the last longer.

Tell me I am not alone with the dirty school tops. Have your children ever eluded to how they became that way?
