Cleaning supplies and stain removal

So I thought I would share with you all what I use to do my cleaning. As you can see in the above picture I don't have 5 different things for the bathroom, something else for the kitchen benches and more products for the floors etc...

My basic kit contains :

Dishwashing liquid
Bi-Carb soda
Laundry powder
Sard soap
Scrubbing brush

I find I don't have a need for all the fancy packaged cleaning products. I'll post later what I use everything for, but I'll start with stain removal.

I hardly use the napisan I have pictured. It is still over 3/4 full and we've had it for 6 months.
But since I heard about using it as a paste to remove stains, I thought I'd give it a go. It isn't my favourite, but it is effective.

In the above picture is my daughters all in one suit, can you guess what that stain is? That's right, not all nappies hold it all!! (I was testing some disposables that have been revamped and will definately NOT be buying them!)
For this stain I would usually just use Sard, but have been advised you can use Napisan mixed with a bit of water to make a paste. Simply apply it and wash as normal. I decided to try it, because I had it there.
As you can see in the above picture, it worked well, but I think I prefer my usual method.

My usual method is rubbing a bar of Sard Wonder Soap on teh stain, then wet a toothbrush and scrub the affected area.

Yes, it takes a little time to find all the stains, and scrub them, but I am so happy with the results (and the price) that I will continue to remove stains this way.

As you can see here, it works a treat. For some reason, every single time my daughter wears
this jacket it gets covered in dirt and stains, more than anything else she owns. But with Sard, I get the stains out everytime.
