No, it doesn’t work.

Sometimes we see an advert so powerful that it made you think it works.. no matter what!

And then… Real life situation comes in.

We go to the playground like almost everyday.

Ethan loves his sand play time and I love brisk walking nearby. But one problem is, when you walk on those red soil, it tends to get into your shoes and ended up staining your socks. I have to wash it everyday but no matter what cleaning powder I use the stain won’t go off. See….

After soaking with bleach oso still like that. Sigh.. at times like this I wish life is as simple as it is in the Ads.. Just one cup and everything is PUTIH BERSERI again! >_<

    Just one cup and everything is PUTIH BERSERI again! – I wish that too. Next time you better take off your socks. hmm

    I like using Vanish (powder form) which I add into very soiled clothes or towels – eg Shalom messes up big time after her jungle trekking session or the daddy who opts to wear white when we head in to our mechanic’s.

    How does the soil get into your shoes? Maybe your shoes are too loose? I sometimes walk on muddy places too but only my shoes get dirty… socks not affected.
