We were invited to celebrate ColorWash Singapore’s 10th Anniversary last month. ColorWash is the first and also the leading professional cleaning service provider in Singapore. Being the pioneer in this field, they are committed to enhance better living and better hygiene through consumer awareness. Headquartered in Singapore, ColorWash has eight retail outlets across Singapore and six others throughout Asia’s major capitals.

Just like the clothes that we wear are regularly washed to maintain their cleanliness and hygiene, our bags and shoes also require regular cleaning for two key reasons:
1. to reduce the toll of daily wear
ColorWash helps to remove the dirt, bacteria, fungus and oil accumulated on our bags and shoes through daily use and from humid weather. It also includes a disinfecting and deodorizing process using ozone (one of the most powerful disinfectants) in their cleaning service to sterilize, kill all bacteria and reduce odors. The process is so meticulous that it cleans down to the littlest of details such as removing the shoe laces and cleaning both the laces and eyelets.

At ColorWash’s Mommy Blogger Event, we sent in Dana’s winter boots and our hardy Le Sportsac Diaper Bag for ozone cleaning. Dana had worn this pair of Hello Kitty boots for our Korean vacation last December and I’ve not washed it purely for fear that it won’t dry properly and I might damage the fur. The diaper bag is my favourite travel companion which I carry for all our overseas trips. I usually rinse it with laundry detergent and leave it to air dry. A chat with the affable Ms. Gemma, ColorWash’s Founder and Director made me realise that improper cleaning has caused parts of the diaper bag’s lining to develop yellowish stains and moulds (gasp!).

When the items were ready for collection one week later, I was pleasantly surprised to see the boots and Diaper Bag given a new lease of life. The grime and dirt were totally cleansed and even the stubborn yellow stains inside the bag were gone! It’s amazing. They have achieved something which home cleaning can’t. I’ve learned that for some services, you just gotta leave it to the hands of the professionals!

In line with school holidays when mothers do a hygiene spot-check and clean up their kids’ school items, ColorWash is extending 20% off on all cleaning services for school bags and all children shoes, usual prices are S$30 and S$15 (for canvas school shoes) respectively. This is only available from 1st June – 30th June 2013 at all ColorWash outlets.
As part of their 10th Anniversary celebrations, ColorWash unveils Singapore’s 1st cleaning and protecting wipes. These Soft Cleaner wipes are meant as a handy companion to provide timely rescue for accidents, smudges and spills (which happen ever so frequently on us Mommies!).
These Italian-manufactured ColorWash Soft Cleaner wipes are water-based and delicate for use. I was surprised to find out that using sanitizing baby wipes to wipe away stains on our leather bags may actually cause irreversible damage as some wipes contain alcohol and oil contents.
To suit the lifestyle of busy Moms who are constantly on the move, ColorWash’s Soft Cleaner wipes have been double-sealed in individual portable sizes, handy enough to carry along for business, social gatherings and overseas travels. Each wipe is sold separately at ColorWash Outlets at S$4.90.

A cleaned bag or shoe will look better and smell better. It will also last longer because it is better maintained. Before you send your children back to school, why not send your child’s bags and shoes in for a professional clean?
