Hot washes, stain removers, soaking in soda crystals...I feel like I've tried them all but then I realised I hadn't yet tried MN, fool that I am.

So here I am, a fledgling reception mum with a mucky boy ( and another in his footsteps) and years of black marker covered grey cuffed shirts ahead of me... How do I get those blighters white again?

Come on MNs, I know you have the answer!

Lidl bio washing powder and a scoop of Ariel whitener stain remover keeps my whites gleaming, and I wash at 40 degrees.

When I worked in a preschool the paint we used always said on the bottle that if it got on clothes to wash in non bio, if that helps anyone.

The Lidl powder got emulsion of DS1's trousers.
