“ Brand: Flash / Type: Stain Remover / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
Having two young children and keeping a lovely tidy house is totally impossible. I have tried and failed but with the help of clever little items like the Flash Mark & Stain its workable.
It's a nightmare finding pen and crayon on your walls as you can imagine. We did have wallpaper right the way through but I got so tired of it looking all marked with drawings etc I had a mad burst of energy one weekend and totally stripped all the walls and replaced them with paint. I work full time and having painted walls made it so much easier for me to clean.
I was sick to death of my 4 year old daughter writing her name on the wall in the living room, she even tried to blame it on her sister who could barely even walk at the time which I found quite amusing. On one particular day she had got hold of a biro and used that. I tried my hardest to get rid of the marks but with no susses so I was left with a lovely picture of a girl holding a balloon right on my main living room wall. I was not impresses to say the least.
I came across the Flash Mark & Stain at my local home and bargains. I had seen these advertised on TV a few times and to be honest I wasn't holding much hope as I couldn't see how a small sponge would remove pen when I had tried almost everything I could think of to remove the stubborn stain.
The Flash Mark & Stain came in a box of with 2 sponges. I paid £1.50 for it although in a supermarket I'd expect this to be a lot more.
As soon as I got home I used the sponges. I couldn't believe how simple they were to use. You have to dampen them slightly and then rub on the mark you want to remove. As soon as the sponge come into contact with the pen it disappeared instantly as if was magic. I was extremely impressed. The sponges smell of lemon which is quite pleasant. I used the same sponge to was my outside window sill and door which came up gleaming. I used the other for my cooker which never looked cleaner.
I have noticed that you can rinse the sponges out and re use them a couple of times. They will still work just as well.
I am a big fan of the Flash Mark & Stain sponges now and have stocked up. They always come in use when my daughter gets bored of paper and decides to use my walls.
These sounded a bit too good to be true when i picked a pack of two up in my local pound land. being the mother to one very mischievous nearly three year old girl, my house has been covered in pen, crayon and pencil from top to toe and a year ago i was at my wits end, after she drew all along our freshly painted front room. i decided to try- for a pound i thought i didnt really have much to lose, it was that or repaint the wall. well it got rid of all of it. i was amazed at the result, the only thing is that i think it took a little of the paint off with it, so it may damage the paintwork with continued use, but for occasional use, its brilliant!they tend to go quite small quite quickly too-although that may just have been me because of the area i had to cover! only thing is, i've still no got round to tackling the stair walls and my daughters bedroom walls yet!
can anybody tell me where i can buy flash mark and stain remover my other one ran out and i cant find a replacement in any supermarket,wilko nor woolworths. as a mum and childminder it is invaluable the plastic tables that the children draw on come up like brand new when i use this product as does the doors and paintwork. please tell me where to get more!
Ever since I have had children, my once tidy and pristine home has felt like a bomb site! I despair about ever having neat orderly spaces ever again, I find all sorts of ordinary objects turning up in extraordinary places, and horor of horrors, I am forever coming across those dreaded pen and crayon scribbles that appear, as if by magic, on walls and tables, etc!
I think it's every parent's nightmare to find their clean walls suddenly covered by their little one's beautiful art work! Every time it happened, I gritted my teeth and tried to admire their latest work of art, while secretly wondering whether there was ever any cleaning product good enough to remove it! Thankfully though, my sister told me about Flash Mark and Stain Eraser, and ever since we have never looked back!
The great thing about the eraser is that it is just so simple. You get two erasers in a box and they just look like two simple, if slightly dense, sponges - you would never think they could perform magic! It is apparently made from a new cleaning material that can penetrate deeply into surface grooves where normally it is so difficult to remove marks. It is so simple to use as well - all you do is add water by rinsing under the tap, then squeezing out the excess, and then you are away! The first time I used it was on a small table where one of may daughters had tried to experiment with a black permanent marker! I never really believed that I could get rid of the stain completely, but with the eraser and a bit of elbow grease, every single trace disappeared! I couldn't believe it, and it really did seem like magic! I have since used it on pen and lipstick stains, on both table tops and walls, and every time the result is the same - a clean surface once more! Hurrah! You do have to rub quite hard with the eraser but it always gets it clean in the end! Also theres no fumes as there might be with some other cleaning products and you don't need to wear gloves!
On the packaging it tells you that it can also be used to remove dirt and grime on cookers and other kitchen appliances, can clean scuff marks on floors, and works on all bathroom surfaces so it really is versatile. The other thing I use mine for very effectively is on my white kitchen sink. I often get some unsightly grey scratches and the eraser gets rid of these very effectively as well!
The eraser can be reused but after a while it loses it's shape and starts to disintegrate. at that point you really just need to throw it away and start with a new one. You certainly will get a good four or five uses out of one, and I find that I can actually make them go further by cutting them in half!
So you are probably thinking that a cleaning product that is this good must cost the earth! Well you would be very much mistaken as it can be bought for round about £2 for a pack of two from most supermarkets! I have just noticed that it is being sold on ebay for a 'buy it now' price of £1.99 and I really don't think that is too unreasonable at all. In fact this product is so good that I am pretty sure that I would actually pay a lot more for it!
So, overall, this is a great cleaning product, and now I no longer despair when i see the latest artwork on the walls. Instead, i admire the artistic flair, wait until my little ones have gone to bed, and then make good use of my Flash Mark and Stain eraser!
