My Ariel Giveaway ends 12th December



Ariel carried out a survey and a 10th of British women have admitted to intentionally ruining one of their partner’s items of clothes just because they didn’t like it, and a ¼ of British men and women frequently ask their partners to change their outfits because they’re embarrassed to be seen with them.


The new ads on TV are hilarious, the golfer and his wife in a series of sketches where his wife tries to rid herself of his garish outfits. She says she had hoped they would fade but Ariel does its job so well she is stuck with them, so comes up with ways to rid herself of the embarrassment!

Sound familiar?

I have a certain look I give Chris, I used to ask " Are you going out in that?"  but we have been together so long, the look now says it all!

He can be sitting in the house and look really smart and for some reason when we are going out, thankfully only occasionally he will  put two items together that just don't go, either by colour or style. I am not alone in my disapproval,   British women feel so strongly about a man’s dress sense that 60% reported clothes are the number one dating deal breaker, followed in second place by a suitor’s haircut (17%) and style of shoes (9%)

I have no need to confess ruining or throwing an item out, its never occurred to me to do it, though the thought has crossed my mind. I will admit to hiding a gruesome T shirt right at the bottom of his drawer as he tends to take clothes from the top of the pile. 



Ariel sent me a goody bag containing a Lie Detector test game to play with my friends to find out whether they are guilty of intentionally ruining their partner’s clothes or not? That will be fun on a night with couples. Also £20 of John Lewis vouchers so I can treat my partner to a new top of his  my choice, as well as trusty Ariel detergent and Ariel Stain Remover to keep his outfits looking squeaky clean. 

But Ariel also thought that my readers might like to come clean and confess any of their clothes hates or sins.

  1. I'm single now! When my ex lived at home with his parents, he used to dump his dirty clothes in a pile in the corner of his bedroom for his mother to collect, wash, iron, fold up and put back in his wardrobe and drawers! Then, when we moved in together, he continued to do this thinking I would take on the role of his mother! Well NO! I spent the 5 years we were together telling him that he should put them in the washing basket but OH NO - did he listen? NO! Hence, he is now my ex!

  6. I've gradually got rid of most of the things my other half had before we got together, so I approve of most of his wardrobe now, with the exception of one incredibly bright multi-coloured collarless shirt that his sister bought him, and which he wears occasionally despite my best attempts! Wouldn't deliberately ruin it though - yet!

  10. Cant believe I'm admitting this but my MIL had this HIDEOUS cardigan. It was truly terrible and she thought it was amazing, was always wearing it for special occasions. So once I lifted my jacket and accidental lifted it too. I never let on and took it with me. I threw it in the charity bag at home and sent it off!! Shes still looking for it now!! The shame!!

  14. The x (I wonder why) went EVERYWHERE and I mean EVERYWHERE in his 10 year-old footie shirt. I had no objection to him wearing it (as I love football) but we went out for a posh dinner and he had said days earlier "Can you wash my footie shirt and then I can wear it on Friday (night of the posh dinner)?" I "accidently" put a pair of red knickers in with it, so his white shirt was a shade of pink. Annoyingly, he had newer up-to-date shirts but he didn't want to wear any of those...

  15. I'm used to and love how my boyfriend dresses.. he has his own style and just wears what he likes. It doesnt bother me as its still him, what he wears honestly doesnt bother me :)

  19. My husband is very smart, can't complain there, my son on the otherhand would be happy to wear t shirts with skulls on for the rest of his life, me - I try to be stylish but never quite make it lol

  20. I can't stand ladies tops with elasticated waists and bottoms. Being a bit bigger, I cannot see how such things can possibly be flattering to a figure!! I look big enough in normal clothes, without accentuating my Apple shape with an elasticated bottom!!

  21. When I was about 7 I was a bridesmaid for my much older cousin. Well first off I wasn't the sort of girl who wore a dress let alone a long, poufy pink dress (which everybody knew). When we tried the dresses on I pleaded to be released from the torture of being a bridesmaid and wearing such an awful dress. But nobody was having any of it. The opposite in fact. My cousin just laughed and said to my mum and aunt that she could remember being a real pain as a bridesmaid at my parents wedding and refusing to smile even once for the camera. I had a brilliant idea, if something happened to the dress surely I wouldn't have to wear it. On the wedding day itself I made no protest about wearing the dress (hoping the adults would forget the fuss I had made at the fitting). I waited until I got out of the car and stood on my dress which tore it and made it dirty. Nobody noticed as all eyes were on the bride. After the ceremony it was noticed and I managed to look innocent and blame it on the dress being too long and saying it must of got caught on something. The worse part was they still made me keep the bloody thing on so all that effort for nothing.

  30. My husband has only a few clothes he wears constantly but my pet hate is a particular outfit he wears to be "comfortable"...which is some cheap looks jogging bottoms paired with his favourite blue chealsea football fleece!!! Ahhh he looks awful in it, I tell him to take it off if I'm going out with him, my husband is a very large man and it makes him look like a slob I'm afraid :(

    To this day, I am totally traumatised by a dress that my mother loved to see me wearing as a child. Can you visualise this, because I still can, it was a lime green dress with cream lace going down the front with cream lace on the cuffs (simular to that of a musketeer)awful, awful, awful! Having dark hair, my mother thought it suited me so well and made me wear it everytime I went to visit someone or for special occaisions and I just wanted to crawl in a hole and hide really! Never warn green again !!!! @Rainbow 222

  56. My partner is very good at picking nice clothes so I've never had to sabotage anything, however many years ago he did buy a horrible plasticy waistcoat which he thought was the bees knees but I hated. I hid that among some boxes and it recently came to light when we were doing some sorting. His face was a picture and I could see him falling in love with it all over again gggrrr. Its not going to be staying.

  62. years agoI used to have 2 pairs of green combat trouser, my Wife hated them with a passion. I liked them as they were so comfy. to her credit she never "accidentally" sabotaged them, but she was very happy the day that I ruined one pair and ripped the other in the same week.

    My husband is currently refusing to accept that he's too old for most of the latest fashions. I try my best to be tactful when he asks my opinion but it's difficult when I'm trying to hold back tears of laughter.

  69. I really hate any kind of stains, I am completely addicted to using pre wash spray and colour catcher cloths in every wash and I think I never allowed my toddler son to be really messy with his food.

  71. My OH has no idea what clothes he has.
    It's a frequent conversation in the house- he'll ask me if he has any clean pants, I'll tell him to look, and he'll say he doesn't know where they are!
    And I have to buy everything for him.
    He's normally fairly competent, but clothes just seem to baffle him.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I can't think of any of my late husband's clothes I didn't like. Even the tatty, holey t-shirts that were donkey's years old, that kind of thing doesn't bother me.

    Anyway, a clothes related story that may have embarassed some people.....

    My husband & his mates would go out pubbing/clubbing in fancy dress for their birthdays.

    One year he went as Daffyd (the poof) from Little Britain, dressed in the red lycra outfit, black boots & blonde wig. He asked me to knit him a willy to go inside the shorts, so I did - about 10" long!!!

    All the blokes were jeolous of his "schlong" and it certainly turned a few heads when they went out around town that night.

    The cat enjoyed playing with it afterwards...

    ReplyDelete
  73. My OH never covers up or puts on old clothes when he does cooking/DIY, hence all his "decent" t-shirts end up with spots of grease, oil, paint....he doesn't bother and carries on wearing them.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well one word EX! Cut up his trousers and shredded his shirts before throwing them at him! @xxfluffywhitexx on twitter

  75. My ex used to have these hideous white linen trousers which were no longer white but looked dirty, he thought they were great but they looked awful, so wanted to 'accidentally' spill something on them which would not wash off.

  76. Im always on a losing sock battle, if the washing machine doesn't steel them my boyfriend does!

  77. I threw away my ex's jacket once. It was horrible and had holes on the front! Yet he would wear it to college. It wasn't even a trendy jacket. It was a cheap sports hoody :/

  79. My guilty secret is that once after washing my husband's trousers I found a £10 note in one of the pockets which I kept and didn't mention!! I suppose that as we're married whatever is his is mine and whatever is mine is my own :-)

  87. My husband is in the middle of a 'mid life crisis' and has been buying very young clothes, skinny jeans, hoodies etc - I put them in the teenagers cupboard after each weekly wash!! By accident of course and am hoping that very gently he will get the hint

    ReplyDelete
  88. fortunately, I like my husband's style, so I have never had to sabotage any of his clothes. However, I know that if he bought something I really hated,then I would be very tempted to do so. Either that, or at the very least, I would often forget to wash it, leaving it at the bottom of the linen basket for weeks on end, so that it would be unavailable to wear.

    ReplyDelete
  89. I like most of my hubby's clothes, his taste can sometimes be a bit predictable though!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I think that my pet hate is that most forms of sabotage (dying in the wash, spilling paint on, even putting a hole in it) are futile as my husband has several favourite items of clothing which have, quite accidentally, suffered all of these things and he just carries on wearing them!

    ReplyDelete
  91. My partner (female) loves (but I hate) wears mens shirts to work.

  95. My husband doesn't care what he looks like! But I often tell him to change if we are going out, the only time he cares is when he's really dressing up in his dinner suit then everything has to be just so. But he does look very handsome in it.

  96. I like what my husband wears but a lot of his pre-me clothes stank of cigarettes and had nicotine stains (he stopped smoking when we got together) so they disappeared fairly swiftly!

Even now - Every time we go clothes shopping he still mentions that bloomin Jacket..

  114. My other half has several shirts of unknown vintage that make him look like an ageing surfer. I wash them as often as possible on the most vigorous of cycles so the holes are developing quite nicely now!

  115. I once went to stay with my friend at her very posh auntie's house. There were 10 people sitting round the dinner table (9 of whom were complete strangers) and the aunt's cavalier king charles spaniel suddenly ran in chewing madly on something. The called the dog over and pulled the item out of its mouth then held it up exclaiming "where did you get that?". It had been chewing on a pair of my knickers that it had stolen out of my bag in the bedroom! I nearly died of shame but everyone else found it hilarious

  116. One of my exs used to be obsessed with flowery shirts - he must have had about 30. I slowly started to bin them, they were hideous!

  123. My hubby does the washing so never really been able to ruin anything. Luckily he doesn't have *too* bad taste; I have the look too. The look is kinda final - I guess I wear the trousers ;)

  124. I where cycling leg warmers in bed when it gets very cold and they are so long they look like sexy underwear. Well they would on my g/f anyway, it doesn't have the same effect on me for some reason!

  125. I buy my husband's clothes so there are no offenders. The only items we disagreed on seem to have disappeared somewhere between manchester and birmingham, when we moved. He did give me a few knowing looks but I bought him some new stuff to make up for it.

  130. my partner when tracksuit bottoms in the house because he says they are comfy. thats fine. but when they end up with tears in them (and i have no idea how they end up torn because all he does is sit at the pc) he continues to wear them. when this happens i cut a hole in the bum bit so he wont wear them anymore! i find it funny everytime i do it because he never notices until he puts them on!

  132. I hate it when my partner pairs up his socks and then puts them in the dirty washing basket. I love un-pairing soggy, dirty, smelly socks

  133. My boyfriend used to have a collection of bright (almost fluorescent) orange T-shirts, they were horrible and I hated it when he wore them. I borrowed one every time I stayed at his place and told him I slept in them at mine because I missed him but I really just chucked them all out. Luckily he didn't bother replacing them and by the time we moved in together he had forgotten I was supposed to have them all.

  138. My hubby has a top he ALWAYS ends up wearing even though he has lots of clothes - tried to kill it so many times when I'm washing/ironing - Just unlucky!

  139. I must admit to taking a rugby shirt belonging to my hubby to the charity shop without him knowing. It was years old and I hated it! But he would insist on still wearing it so one day I just made it disappear! lol
    He kept asking where it was and I swore I didn't know.
    I felt a teeny bit guilty....honest!

  141. Urgh I do secretly enjoy hiding and bining my OHs manky fleeces - he insists on wearing the threadbare rags even though he has a wardrobe full of nice ones!

  142. My dad once bought a pair of M & S Trousers. Unbeknown to me he had worn them once and then they had sat in the cupboard for a while. He asked me to take them back on the pretext they were too big but had cut the cardboard label off and had no receipt. The sales assistant told me they looked as if they had been worn and I was insisting they hadn't - then they pulled a used hankie out of one of the pockets!! A case of my Dad sabotaging me I would say!

  143. My dad always has to wear shorts when he's in the house even in the winter & he always puts the fire on which when myself & my mother is dressed correctly for winter are so hot! It drives both my mother & myself mad we really want to burn his shorts!!!

  153. I had a hooded cardigan which I loved and wore to death until a year down the line everyone tells me how much they've always hated it! It is at this very moment sat in our wheelie bin waiting to be collected and that makes me sad.

  154. I had this gorgeous dress that was black with like wild random flowers on and my other half threw it away. I loved that dress! And he got rid of my red trainers as well - i forgot about that!

  155. There are plenty of T-shirts my husband has which I really would rather met an unfortunate end but he may well have the same feeling over some of my clothes! I've never particularly sabotaged any, though I did 'accidentally' hand a bag of clothes to the charity shop which had a really hideous Exorcist t-shirt in it!
