Save My Knickers

Hi there! My name is Lucy, I am the founder of Save My Knickers. Until now blood stains have been put up with as a fact of life and women have suffered this in silence. I am revolutionising periods and empowering women to feel their best selves and confidently wear their favourite knickers every day of the month. I do this through the magic of the award winning product, Save My Knickers, the first blood stain remover, that successfully removes blood stains from everything from knickers and jeans to pyjamas and bed sheets. I love it because not only does Save My Knickers have such a positive impact on women’s lives, but it is also helping the environment by reducing the amount of knickers etc being thrown away too.

Boom Sauce

Trinidadian inspired Chilli Sauce made with a 'Pinch of Trini Love.' Some years ago, my Uncle in Trinidad gave me some chilli sauce he had made. And whenever I would visit him, he would always encourage me to open up a restaurant and make Trini food for the people of the South Coast. But that was a lot of talk over a LOT of Trini rum! I tried to recreate his chilli sauce but added my own twist. I began to sell to friends and family and it was so popular....Boom Sauce went from a hobby to a business in June 2019. My first flavour Fix Up D'heat was named after his favourite saying, whenever he would like his glass topped up with rum my Uncle would say "Fix up, Fix up!"
