Dr. Beckmann Stain Devils

With a few days to go until I go from having one set of school uniforms to wash to three, it’s safe to say my washing machine, not to mention my purse, is going to take a hammering during school terms for the foreseeable future. I have to say that it has been an absolute revelation buying uniform this year. Usually I buy Charlie a new school jumper, a pack of polo tops and a couple of pairs of trousers and that’s it, we are all set. This year however has consisted of school dresses, pinafores, skirts, trousers, culottes, polo tops, ankle socks, knee-high socks, tights and don’t even start me on hair stuff! After shelling out a small fortune, it’s no wonder that I am going to want to make our school uniform last as long as possible. Step forward Dr. Beckmann Stain Devils.

My kids all have to wear white school tops and any parent knows how hard it is with kids to keep white clean. My girls are opting to have school dinners on certain days (namely the one with pizza) so I am anticipating lots of orange stains come Friday at 3pm. I hate to throw stuff away when it can be saved, so I was thrilled when Dr Beckmann sent us some of their Stain Devils products to try out.

Dr. Beckmann Stain Devils

Each Dr. Beckmann Stain Devil works by the same method of rubbing onto the stain before popping in the washing machine. They all alter slightly in the time the stain needs to soak but between them they claim to remove a whole host of stains including red wine, juice and tea.

I decided to set them to work after a typical colouring session where the girls always manage to get pen everywhere.

The pre-wash Stain Devils is perfect for removing new or dried in stains. I am anticipating lots of lunch time stains so this will still work. It doesn’t contain bleach so won’t make the fabric all dry and scratchy which I’ve found lots of other products can do. All you need to do is apply a little bit of gel to the stain, work the gel into the stain using the little brush attached to the top of the bottle then leave for around 10 minutes.

I then popped it in the wash and hey presto stain has gone. Make sure you read the instructions as this cannot be used on certain materials such as leather, wool and silk.

Dr. Beckmann have shared this video over on their YouTube channel. Would you be kind enough to tell them? I know I would!

I think these are going to be my new best friend in the coming months. Dr. Beckmann products are available at various stockists including Asda, Morrisons and Wilkos. You can also buy them directly from the Dr. Beckmann website.

    The best thing for anything food/greasy is either neat washing up liquid or neat shampoo, it gets rid of the grease. (doesn’t get rid of the colour stain though)

    Always pre treat stains as soon as they happen this helps break up the stain so it’s easier to wash out

    If you notice immediately, then soap and water before it drys, then use Dr Beckmanns afterwards

    I do a lot of soaking overnight , that helps with stains

  5. 2nd September 2017 / 2:35 pm

    always use Fairy liquid for stuborn stains with a bit of white vinegar and afterwards put the clothing in the washing machine.

    Spray hairspray on ink stains, blot with kitchen paper, then wash as normal and the stain will wash straight out.
    It works- I had a huge blue ink stain on my son’s school top and thought I would have to throw it away but I tried this as a last resort and it removed 100% of the stain first time.

    Use a pre-wash stain remover and allow it to sit as directed. Wash item in the hottest water recommended for the fabric using a detergent. After pre-treating with stain remover, use diluted vinegar to remove any remaining colour.

    for greasy stains rub a little washing up liquid on the stain before washing

    My tip would be to get a stain pen to get rid of stains on the go and straight away. It is perfect for when you’re not home and it has saved some of my favourite clothes from being stained. I then usually wash with a stain remover to be certain all of it has gone.

    shower gel is a great emergency cleaner when you spill coffee all down yourself even when dried on (as I discovered in a service station at the weekend on a long car trip)

    Get the stain soaking asap

  30. 24th September 2017 / 7:39 am

    Deal with it as soon as possible!! the quicker you act, the more likely you are to get it out

  31. 24th September 2017 / 2:01 pm

    Best tip- (depending on stain) soak in warm water with bio detergent for an hour or more, then wash in machine. Never soak silk. I’ve used Dr Beckmann’s stain remover for biro & it’s amazing. 😀

  32. 24th September 2017 / 7:48 pm

    Putting some washing up liquid or stain remover directly on the mark before you wash in washing machine helps

    Soak the item in a bucket overnight – it always works for me! As taught to me by my mum!
