  • How to Keep Your Home Fresh Without Even Trying

So read on to find out how to get your laundry and home Super Clean!

How to Clean, Freshen & Soften in One Wash


Bold’s All-in-1 Pods are the latest innovation from the Bold team, giving mums and dads across the country an easy-to-use laundry pod that cleans, freshens and softens.

With their unique three-chamber design, Bold All-in-1 Pods have it all so you can spend less time with the laundry, and more time doing what you love (enjoying the invigorating scent of your fresh out of the drum wash, of course!).

How to Get an Extra Boost of Fragrance in Your Wash

Sometimes, you just need a little more. Adding Lenor In-Wash Scent Booster will add an extra boost of freshness to you clothes. Just make sure you pour the beads directly into the empty drum, followed by detergent, clothes and then fabric conditioner.

You’ll notice your clothes staying fresh for up to 12 weeks in storage, meaning whenever you come to dig out those spring dresses and colourful t-shirts and shorts, they’ll still smell like they’ve just come out of the wash!

How to Get Once-White-Towels White Again

We’ve all got them haven’t we? Admit it. There are a few spare towels at the back of our airing cupboards that were once white…and now they’re…grey? Or whatever colour that is.

Well, they don’t have to stay that grey-ish-faded-yellowy shade of dull. Just add one scoop of Vanish Gold Oxi Action Stain Remover for Whites into 4L of water (no more than 40 degrees).

Add your towels and leave to soak for 4-6 hours. Then just put them on a normal wash and add another scoop of Vanish Gold Oxi Action before you start the cycle!

B&M Top Tip: before using Vanish Gold Oxi Action Stain Remover, always test on a hidden part of the garment first before applying to the whole.

How to Bring Spring into Your Home

What better way to welcome the warmer months than with a fresh new fragrance in your home?

Whichever room needs it most (we’re looking at you, bathroom), there’s a Febreze air freshener especially for the job. Try Febreze Bathoom Air Freshener, with its refreshing White Jasmine scent lasting up to 90 days.

And awaken spring elsewhere in your home with Febreze Air Mist Spring Awakening – its formulated to eliminate everyday odours, leaving you with the bright beginnings of spring.

B&M Top Tip: don’t forget about the crockery and glassware! Finish Classic Dishwasher Tablets contain a pre-soaking Powerball which soaks and softens tough food stains, ready for the detergent to do its thing!

How to Keep Your Home Fresh Without Even Trying


With the usual never-ending list of jobs, it’s easy to forget those tasks that can really make a difference to your home. So wouldn’t it be great if some jobs were automatic? If you could just mark them off your to-do list without having to lift a finger?

Air Wick’s Freshmatic Gadget is an automatic spray that keeps your home smelling exactly as you want it: fresh. And you can pick up refills for whichever fragrance you like best, like Tropical Island Breeze or Linen & Lilac.
