How to whiten grey bras

How to whiten grey bras

We've just launched our brand new product...

Have you ever accidentally washed a white bra with your dark clothes? Are you embarrassed by your greying sad-looking underwear? Have you tried all the other fabric whiteners on the market but nothing works? 

This is no ordinary fabric whitener

Our brand new product Vamoosh Lingerie Whitener, transforms your greying bras and underwear UP TO 10 SHADES WHITER!*

Vamoosh Lingerie Whitener is different from your usual fabric whitener or natural solution as it’s designed specifically for bras.   Despite there being plenty of fabric whiteners on the market, none of them are specifically designed to work on the particular issues behind the reason why bras and underwear go grey.  

Why do bras go grey?  

The reason for this is that majority of bras and underwear are made, at least in part, from nylon which is particularly susceptible to picking up small amounts of dye in the wash every time it is washed.  No other whitening product on the market is designed (or works well) to remove this grey discolouration from nylon.   (Instead, the other whitening products are designed for other fabrics such as cotton as the discolouration and staining is different and therefore requires a different formula to remove.)


Revive and refresh your old underwear with our easy-to-use handwash solution - your secret weapon against greying underwear.

  • INCREDIBLE RESULTS - Vamoosh Lingerie whitener turns your bras and underwear UP TO 10 SHADES WHITER!*

  • EASY TO USE - Simply place both sachets (the Activator and the whitener) into a bowl of hottest tap water, add your garments, and stir regularly for 30 minutes.

  • REVIVE & REFRESH OLD UNDIES -  Our clever formula breathes new life into your old, greying undies.

  • WORKS ON ALL TYPES OF UNDERWEAR - suitable for bras, knickers, pants, shapewear, sports bras.

  • 1 HANDWASH SOLUTION - Includes 2 sachets for 1 handwash for up to 6 garments.

Give our new product a try and see the results for yourself!

    Don't forget to wash your pet's bed!

    Don't forget to wash your pet's bed!

    As COVID-19 continues to spread, we are all becoming much more conscious of how we clean our home and our laundry to ensure that we reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Advice tells us to wipe down our shopping, regularly clean our phones and laptops, wipe our steering wheels - not to mention frequently wash our hands. 

    But what about our dogs/cats and their pet bed? 

    The good news is, according to the World Health Organisastion (WHO), there is no evidence that dogs or cats can be infected with Covid-19 - but we must remember that germs and infections can be passed easily from animals to humans after you pat and pet them - and many of these organisms can live in your dog or cat's bed without a host.  Also, when your dog or cat sleeps in its bed and then moves around the house, they are dragging invisible germs everywhere they go.  

    While there is no specific research on how long Covid-19 can stay on fabric it is believed that all types of fabric can be contaminated with the virus, so it is possible that although you may be meticulously cleaning all the other parts of your home, your pet's bed may be harbouring infections.  

    So, whilst we're all being super careful to keep our homes clean, we must really make sure that our dogs' and cats' beds and bedding aren't neglected and are washed regularly.  

    This isn't new news though.  In fact, in some previous research carried out before the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Kelly Reynolds, Associate Professor of Environmental Health at the University of Arizona found that dog beds were one of the top 10 germiest spots in the house due to the hundreds of germs, MRSA and faecal matter that they can harbour

    But how frequently should we wash our dog's bed? 

    How often should I wash my dog's bed?

    According to the Dr Kelly Reynolds, you should wash your pet's bed once a week.  She recommends that you remove the cover from your dog’s bedding and wash it in hot water, followed by drying it on a high heat to remove the dirt and germs.  

    The longer you go between washes, the harder it will be for your washing machine to remove all the potential pathogens from the bedding.

    The quick and easy way to wash your dog's bed

    In the OnePoll survey we commissioned, we found that the main reason why people put off washing their pet bedding was due to the hair that gets left behind in the washing machine and tumble dryer - the hassle factor! 

    The good news is that Vamoosh provides a quick and easy way to wash your pet's bedding without any hair left behind. Vamoosh is added to your normal detergent and dissolves pet hair in the washing machine, leaving your pet bedding, blankets and washing machine hair-free and hygienically clean.

      Our step-by-step guide to surviving the dog hair shedding season

      Our step-by-step guide to surviving the dog hair shedding season

      Are you starting to fret that the shedding season is just around the corner (or maybe it's even started for some of your hairy housemates?) Don't fear! We've put together our step-by-step survival guide for the shedding season, based on top tips from our team at Vamoosh HQ.

      1. Make grooming your pet part of your daily routine

      dog groomingMake grooming part of your everyday life with your pet.  Giving them a very quick brush outside every day will save you loads of time spent trying to remove the hair in the house.  If you commit to doing this every day you'll most definitely see a reduction in the amount of fur round the house. What's more, your pet will definitely enjoy the daily grooming. 

      2. Use fleece blankets and throws on furniture

      3. Wash your pet regularly - and be careful when drying them. 

      dog hairdryerWashing your pet regularly will not only help to keep your pet's coat clean and soft, but it will also help to cut down the amount of hair around the house.  Top tip: when drying your pet, don't use a hot heat. Not only could it potentially hurt your pet, the heat will increase the likelihood of shedding.  There are some great microfibre towels out there which dry your pets quickly and effectively - and of course, if the weather is fine, let your pooch shake off outside for a few minutes to dry before you bring them back inside. 

       

      4. Remember, it's natural!

      Try to keep in mind that it's natural and healthy for dogs to shed their winter coat in spring (and indeed also get rid of the old and dead hair to grow a winter coat in Autumn) so try not to worry too much about the hair they leave behind.  Shedding varies depending on the breed and health of your dog.  If you are worried about excessive shedding though, please consult your vet. 

      5. Get tooled up

      There are more tools for removing pet hair than you can shake a stick at.  From swiffer tools that pick up hair from hard floors and vacuum cleaners designed for pet hair and various grooming gloves, brushes and tools.  When it comes to washing your pet's bedding, towel and blankets, Vamoosh Pet Hair Dissolver is an absolute must to remove all that fur from your washing machine and keep the fuzz at bay.
