Donate a blanket for charity

Molly & Monty were delighted to donate some blankets to the Dettol Baby Blanket Donation campaign this week. The appeal aims to raise awareness of the dangers of bacteria on baby blankets, particularly during the cold & flu season, whilst highlighting the shortage of baby blankets available to infants born to families in need.

Laboratory tests commissioned by Dettol on washed blankets donated by volunteer mums show that baby blankets carry a variety of bacteria even after a 40°C wash, with a third of the washed blankets harbouring coliforms – a group of bacteria linked to faeces. So, once collected, the baby blankets will be hygienically washed with Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser - an additive that kills 99.9% of bacteria even in temperatures as low as 15°C - before being re-distributed to families in need. Not only that, Dettol has pledged to donate £1 for every blanket collected to children’s medical research charity, Sparks to raise much needed funds for UK families with children who are affected by serious illness or disability.
