Dettol Baby Blanket Donation

logo development 4

Like most mums, my children’s first ever blankets are a treasured keepsake, but many babies across the world never get to experience the comfort of a warm, clean blanket.

Dettol has teamed up with celebrity mum-of-two, Rachel Stevens, to encourage mums to “keep the memories, not the bacteria” in a new campaign which highlights the dangers of bacteria on baby blankets: did you know that even after washing they can still harbour a variety of unpleasant bacteria? The campaign also supports disadvantaged families in need of baby blankets and raises money for the charity Sparks.

EDITORIAL USE ONLY Rachel Stevens, a mum of two and new ambassador of Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser, launches the Dettol Baby Blanket Donation campaign in central London, by donating the first blanket to the cause. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Tuesday September 23, 2014. Dettol is encouraging parents across the UK to “keep the memories, not the bacteria” - @DettolBlanket #sharethememories - by donating a blanket via Freepost and sharing their special recollections and photographs of their babies’ blanket on social media.  Once collected, the baby blankets will be hygienically washed with Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser before being re-distributed by Dettol to families in need.

Dettol Anti-Bacterial Laundry Cleanser kills 99.9% of bacteria even in washes as low as 30 degrees. Dettol and Sparks are asking mums to send in unwanted baby blankets to their freepost address below, where they’ll be hygienically washed then redistributed to families in need.

For every blanket collected Dettol has also pledged to donate £1 to Sparks. Sparks’ projects find ways to diagnose, treat and prevent conditions in four key areas: pregnancy and birth, first months of life, infancy and early childhood and rare childhood diseases. You can find out more about their work by visiting
