My mother-in-law Ann Robin­son, 80, from Sur­rey, is such a stain-bust­ing ninja that we take our whites round for her to tackle. Noth­ing – not beet­root nor pen – beats her. Her ad­vice: ‘Soak laun­dry overnight in cold wa­ter with wash­ing liq­uid to loosen the stain be­fore pop­ping it in the wash­ing ma­chine. The wa­ter has to be cold – warm or hot wa­ter will set the stain.’ Ann is a keen Which? reader, and she in­forms me that the ‘very best’ wash­ing liq­uid right now is Lidl’s Formil bi­o­log­i­cal wash­ing pow­der (£2.99 for 3 litres). ‘It’s just as good as Ariel which I used to think was the best.’ High praise in­deed.
