Matalan are looking for 250 Mumsnetters with a child aged 3-13 to try out an item of uniform clothing from their “Teflon Stain Resistant” range.

Here’s what Matalan say. “Our Teflon stain resistant coating is designed to repel water and stains, restricting stains from absorbing into the fabric. We know kids will be kids and we want to help you keep them looking smart for school and make sure their school uniform lasts.”

Selected testers will receive an online voucher including a barcode allowing them to select one item from the specified range for free. Testers can either present the voucher using their mobile phone or print off their voucher and use it in store. The selected items will be available in all Matalan stores. You can call ahead to your nearest store to check stock availability – find your store’s contact details here: Please note only this product test is limited to one child per household.

Testers will be free to select their size and colour preference. Please note that the vouchers will only be valid from 4th-16th April, so selected testers must purchase their item between those dates. For a full range of the products on offer, please see below:



Testers will test the products over a three week period and will be required to leave their feedback on a thread on Mumsnet as well as completing a short survey.

All testers who complete all forms of feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one tester will win a £300 Love2Shop voucher.

If you’re interested, and would like to take part, please sign up here:

We will be in touch with selected testers soon.

Thanks and good luck,

Finally managed to submit the form after Q.4 kept asking for a comment when there didn't need to be one.

carz1985 Thu 24-Mar-16 17:45:06

Applied - never tried them before!

I've signed up too, never used matalan for uniform.
Dd is in reception and they've been wearing a ( horrible ) school track suit for the winter months and after Easter they're allowed a "proper uniform " and I can't wait smile

I've applied too, never had uniform from Matalan and would like to try it!

FranksBobot Thu 24-Mar-16 20:36:03

Would be interesting to see how Matalan uniforms hold up against my destructible child (dd1)!!

Keeps saying
'Question needs an answer'
When there isn't one :/

Yes please have completed my D's goes through so many jumpers from! Pen stains that are apparently washable!!

nerysw Fri 25-Mar-16 06:53:47

Applied, my grubby 4 year old would be ideal to give them a thorough test!

Are all the address fields completed?

wannabestressfree Fri 25-Mar-16 09:35:26

It went through this morning.... it didn't like where I live!

hareagain Fri 25-Mar-16 09:54:22

DS will be the ultimate test. Costs me a small fortune.

waitingforgodot Fri 25-Mar-16 11:41:45

Quite tricky to complete on my phone. Done now! Matalan must relish a challenge!

VoldysGoneMouldy Fri 25-Mar-16 15:34:42

Have signed up. I don't want to think how much I spend on uniform each year - would be fab to see if this is true to it's name.

glenthebattleostrich Fri 25-Mar-16 16:15:56

I've applied. my child is on a mission to bankrupt me by growing stupidly fast and generally being incredibly destructive.

SmileyShazza Fri 25-Mar-16 22:45:03

I would love to give this range a try and I've always wondered how it compares to the current place I buy DS' school uniform from.

leccybill Sat 26-Mar-16 13:43:15

I've applied for this.

Done! DS is in secondary now and still going through school trousers at a rate of knots! Let's hope metal an have the answer!

AtSea1979 Sun 27-Mar-16 20:20:35

Done. I would love to try this for DD and if better than my usual brand, will buy for all DC in future.
