Giveaway #393 : Win 5 x gorgeous aden + anais baby blankies - closed - winners Claire BBDiva Butler, Anthony Harrington, Kunai Shah, Vicky Cockett, Debbie Angel Godbolt


You may remember that last week, I tried out Dettol Laundry Cleanser - you can read my review here - and discovered the alarming news that running the washing machine on a 40° cycle is insufficient for getting rid of all the hidden nasties lurking in the water. Dettol explain : "It’s notoriously difficult to prise children away from their precious ‘blankies’ but research now reveals baby blankets could be harbouring nasty germs, even after they have been washed. Laboratory tests commissioned by Dettol - on washed blankets donated by volunteer Mums - show that baby ‘blankies’ carry a variety of bacteria even after a 40°C wash. In fact, a third of the washed blankets harboured coliforms – a group of bacteria linked to faeces." Yuck ! Luckily, adding 2 capfuls of Dettol Laundry Cleanser in the fabric softener drawer is enough to kill 99.9% of bacteria even at 30°C.


To celebrate the good news, Dettol have kindly donated a gorgeous prize that will keep your little ones happy - five lucky Madhouse Family Reviews readers will win one of these adorable cotton muslin musy mate blankies from aden + anais, which retail at £19.95. (More details here.) For your chance to win, enter your details in the Rafflecopter widget below.



UK only. Closing date : 10/6/14

T & C's : Entries close at midnight on the closing date. Winners will be selected with a random number generator and announced on facebook, twitter and in the giveaway post subject line. Please note, you will be contacted by email and/or twitter and if I haven't heard from you after a week, I'll have to pick another winner. Prizes will be sent out by the companies or their PR directly to winners. Madhouse Family Reviews cannot be held responsible for any prizes that go astray !
