So, I decided to basically wash all our teddies with the new product. The two pictured above are definitely being kept, my life simply wouldn't be worth living without them, but they then shared a tearful farewell with some of their buddies who would leave us later that day. As you can see, they had a lovely 'last supper type picnic' lounging around in the sun.
We also were inspired to rummage through the other toy boxes and the wardrobes and managed, quite easily, to fill an entire sack for Oxfam with things the boys don't play with or wear anymore.
As far as the Persil 2in1 with Comfort product goes, it does everything it claims to - it leaves the items clean, soft and the passion flower fragrance is really lovely. I could even smell it on my little boy's PJs the next day after he'd been snuggled up to his freshly washed teddy all night. The 875ml 'Small & Mighty' bottle does 25 washes - using the 35ml cap to measure the correct amount for a standard wash. I've always been quite brand loyal to Persil and would definitely buy this again for the lovely smell alone!
So, why not pass on the love yourself - dig out those unwanted teddies and toys, give them a quick spin in the washing machine with Persil 2in1 and then take them to your local Oxfam.
Unfortunately, even with the couple of teddy sacrifices the children agreed to, there is still a heap of soft toys to rearrange at the foot of the bed but, if I'm totally honest, I kind of like it that way.
