There are few things more frustrating than getting a fresh load of laundry out of the washing machine, only to discover that chocolate stain - or was it mud? - is still smeared all over your little one's favourite outfit.
But you haven't got time to be scrubbing away with a pre-wash treatment - you just want it sorted as quickly as possible. So you roll your eyes and throw it back on the washing pile.
But not any more, because Ariel and Hotpoint's new Smart+ range brings you outstanding stain removal in just 45 minutes, leaving your clothes superbly clean and smelling great.
What's more, this wonderful washing duo can help you save, over and over. Here's how:
Got a clothing emergency? The Anti-Stain Turbo programme removes 40 of the most common stains in just 45 minutes.
Thanks to its new Direct Injection Technology, a cleaning foam made with a pre-mix of water and detergent is injected into the drum and, combined with a series of clever movements to optimise the wash performance, it removes even the most stubborn of stains. In fact, the direct injection improves washing power by 60%.
Save the environment
The Hotpoint Smart+ range has a remarkable A+++-10% energy rating. This combines perfectly with its quick wash cycle to help protect the environment, saving water (up to 30%) and energy (up to 60%)* - a double win.
By using special technology to blend low-temperature washing with rapid, outstanding stain removal, the Hotpoint Smart+ range can help you save on your energy bills.
Speedy washes also help your clothes last longer by stressing the fibres less, so they won't stretch or lose their colour. All of which keeps them looking newer for longer.
Plus, for a limited time only, you can get six months' supply of Ariel Liquid FREE when you purchase a new Hotpoint Smart+ washing machine**, saving you even more money.
And of course, by using Ariel in Hotpoint's Smart+ machine, those stubborn mud - or were they chocolate? - stains will quickly be a thing of the past.
