A Sentimental Father’s Day for the Ultimate “Thank You”

| June 17, 2015 | 8 Comments

Father’s Day, the time of the year we set aside to celebrate that special man in the family will soon be upon us! With that in mind, have you solved what you will do to let this person know how much you appreciate everything he does? Finding the perfect gift can be a daunting task.

Instead of racking your brain to think about the perfect gift to buy dad, what about making some of dad’s treasured favourite things new again!

Take a Walk with Dad Down Memory Lane

Consider dusting off an old photo of him with his friends and family, or a trophy he’s proud of, and frame it for display. Nostalgia can be a powerful force, so don’t underestimate how sentimental a father can be! Simple gestures like these will go a long way and bring him back to his fondest moments.

With OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover, it’s perfect for both his favourite clothes and fabric upholstery. For soft surface stains, simply mix one scoop with water to remove excess stain before treating. Apply only enough solution to saturate the stain and allow the solution to stand for 1-5 minutes. Blot with a white towel and repeat until the stain is not visible. Then, rinse with clean water and blot until dry. For tough laundry stains, mix 2-4 scoops per 3.8L of water and submerge the stained items into the solution after dissolved. Soak the garment for 1-6 hours depending on the severity of the stain, then wash as normal.

While you are cleaning up some of dad’s favourite things, why not refresh dad’s favourite things from the good ol’ days. This means restoring his lucky baseball cap, or the colours on his old sports team jersey to bring him back to that championship game. Try cleaning up his favourite childhood toy and let the memories pour in.

So to all of you dads out there, whether you work in or outside of the home, you will always have a special place in our hearts. Happy Father’s Day!
