      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a product that can be used on many surfaces

      While in my local Asda store last week, I picked up the majority of things I needed, mainly food items. It was only as I got closer to the till I realised I needed to buy an anti bacterial cleaner. I picked this one up, along with Asda bathroom cleaner for £1.50 for the 2.



      Why did I go for this one?

      I bought this one purely because of cost. Other similar products but bigger brand names were a lot more in price, and I also needed a bathroom cleaner as well. So spending effectively 75p per item I felt was really good value.



      How is it packaged?

      This product isn't going to win any awards for how it looks. Alittle different to the picture on this site.It comes in a 500ml clear plastic bottle with a black trigger spray top. On the front the label clearly and in big lettering states this is a ' Antibacterial Cleaner .'It kills 99.9% bacteria and its odour, taint and bleach free. The label is black at the top with the ' Asda chosen by you ' slogo on it, white in the centre and pink at the bottom with a picture of a plughole.

      On the back it tells you where you can use this product, how to use, ingredients, and the usual warning and caution statements. Plus contact details for Asda.



      Ingredients

      Asda Anti-Bacterial Cleaner contains amongst other ingredients: Less than 5% Non-Ionic surfactants , Also contains: Disinfectant, Perfume.



      How to use?

      Spray directly onto surface. Wipe over with a damp cloth and allow to dry.



      Where can it be used?

      Kitchen and bathroom surfaces. Baby equipment. High chairs. Chopping boards. Sinks. Baths. Toilet seats. Shower curtains.

      This can be used on many different surfaces especially those were you feel germs are an issue, as this product states it can kill Salmonella, Listeria =, E Coli, Enterococcus hirae, Paeudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus.



      What do I think of this product?

      As much as I love using products that have a great smell to them, sometimes you need something that simply does a job and is fragrance free which this is. This product or different brand, is something I have always used on my childrens high chair, directly on the area where they eat their food on. Now my home if highchair free, I use this product to clean the table that the kids eat on, draw on and generally play on as it can get sticky, dirty and probably very germ covered!

      I find it a product that is very easy to use, the trigger doesn't require too much pressure to push and release the spray. I like the fact the product comes out in quite thin but strong stream which means the product is directed to where I need it to go a lot easier.

      This is a product I tend to use on areas that are lightly dirty not ingrained with grime. Or an area that doesn't appear to be dirty, but want to have the antibacterial effect. So whether its appropriate for hard core cleaning I cannot comment on, but when using it in my way I find the product easy to dispense and wipe away. It dries very quickly as long as too much has not been used. The main thing I use this for is on areas that the children and sometimes on work surfaces.

      I can see this beong a product that will last some time as you dont need too much and overall its a good size so wont need to replace anytime soon.

      Would I buy this product again? Yes I would. The packaging doesn't blow me away and if you love everything to have fragrancein it then this is not for you. But it's a good hard working product for light cleaning jobs. The price is fantastic as this product alone costs £1.25, so £1.50 for 2? Fab.

      Good product at great price.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I will continue to buy this especially on special offer

      I bought this as it was buy one get one free in Asda, for £1.50. The packaging design is different from above, it is a see through bottle, with a black trigger spray lid. You get 500ml and it goes a long way.

      I find it particularly useful for the kitchen as it cuts straight through any dirt or grease left from cooking, especially the hob. I was a bit lazy recently and didnt clean the hob for a week and then sprayed a good amount on, and it wiped straight off! It doesnt contain any bleach, and although it says theres no smell, you can smell a bit of chemical but it does make it smell and feel clean. It does get into your lungs a bit so make sure you open a window if using in large amounts.

      I have also had a problem with mould, and have found that spraying some of the liquid in a bowel of hot water lifts the smell away and makes the mould come off the walls easily without having to scrub them too hard. It doesnt take off any paint and has meant that my home is kept a lot nicer than if I had to use bleach.

      It also works well for dry mopping the floor, as I have a laminate floor it needs wiping regularly, and it leaves it dirt free, shining and feeling clean.

      I dont really use it in the bathroom, as I have a separate bathroom cleaner for this. It does state that it is suitable for use there though.

      You can use it without gloves on, and it looks like a more expensive product than it is, because of the sleek black design. The trigger spray means you can reach areas that you might not be able to normally.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      a cleaner which works at a good price

      I hate cleaning yet I love it at the same time, I'm a sucker for all these cleaning products you can buy to help keep your home clean and I'm not fussy what ones I use, although I do tend to buy branded cleaners when they are on offer as they are a tad expensive otherwise.

      I shop where I fancy when I fancy it too and recently I've been doing my shopping in Asda so I decided to try their home cleaners.

      I bought a few bottles of their Anti Bacterial Cleaner which promises to kill 99.9% bacteria - sounded good!

      The bottle's design is forever changing I've noticed and at the moment it's a see through plastic 500ml trigger spray bottle with a black trigger spray top. There's a sticker on the front and on the back, the front one clearly telling us it's Asda's Anti Bacterial Cleaner and it is Odour, taint and bleach free, with a picture of a pink plughole beneath which looks rather appealing - well to me anyway as I love anything pink. The back of the bottle provides directions for us, ingredients, a warning on what not to use the cleaner on and informing us what the cleaner is good for and what it can be used on which includes kitchen and bathroom surfaces, high chairs, baby equipment, sinks, baths and even toilet seats.

      The spray itself is a clear substance and sprays out looking very much like water. The bottle does state that this product is odour free, which I agree it doesn't have a particular 'scent' as such, but it does have a slight 'clean chemical' smell, nothing strong or overpowering, it is in fact very faint, but when you clean a whole bathroom or kitchen with this you can certainly smell a 'cleaning product' smell about the place.

      I only use this spray in my kitchen both on my work tops and my gas hob which needs a clean quite often and my bathroom. As the house we live in was brand new when we moved in and I do clean up regularly I don't get a build up of dirt to clean as such so the cleaner has had nothing to really test it's strengths apart from the odd spaghetti and beans stain on the work top, which it does work through these with ease. I just spray, leave for a few seconds and wipe and the stain does lift off my surfaces instantly leaving it looking clean at least. I have had no problems using this product it cleans my kitchen and bathroom well without leaving an overpowering bleach smell everywhere, although sometimes I do like that. It's fairly cheap being nearly 90p for a bottle which is alot cheaper than some you can buy and it actually works well too, so I'd definitely reccomend this to anybody looking to try a new cleaner without expecting complete miracles, as it certainly works as a 'good' cleaner.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A decent quality product

      At the moment I am in the process of cleaning up my flat. I am moving pronto away from a flat-share I had to living on my own so in the meantime myself and my fella are constantly cleaning to get it spic and span and looking A1 so myself and my old flatmate get our bond back with no issues!

      Being on a budget as I am moving I have been out and bought some little cleaning helpers and this was one of them and offering to kill 99.9% of bacteria I felt that promise was as good as alot of the more expensive brands on offer so was pleased to buy it.

      The Packaging:

      The bottle has a black plastic trigger action sprayer to the top of it and the product is held in a see through bottle under that. On the front of the bottle there is a black, white and pink label on there and we are told that it is Asda 'Chosen By You' Anti Bacterial Cleaner 'Odour, taint and bleach free' and there is a photograph of a gleaming looking plughole. On the back of the bottle other information given includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, ingredients and warnings are listed as well as cautions, the size is stated which is 500ml and contact details for Asda are listed. Simple but informative bottle this is and I do like the fact that the trigger action sprayer to the top of it is easy to use and that you can turn it on and off too to keep it safe.

      A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Bottle:

      Tough on stains but kind enough to use on food surfaces.

      Suitable for use on:
      Kitchen & bathroom surfaces
      High chairs
      Baby equipment
      hopping boards
      Sinks
      Baths
      Toilet seats
      Shower curtains

      Using it:

      Well this spray is clear and has a little foam that quickly disperses once sprayed. Although called odour free, to me this does have a slightly sweet aroma to it which is pleasant but you can only smell it if you really do sniff it deeply.

      Basically you can use this watery spray anywhere! Simply spray and wipe it away! Not only does it visibly remove dirt and grime (though not grease very easily to be fair!), it is simple to spay it and wipe it away quickly and effectively leaving no residue at all. We are told on th bottle that this kills salmonella, listeria. ecoli, enterococcus, psedomonas, staphylococcus and influenza A HinL.

      I use this everywhere in my current home as it is safe and effective and leaves no weird fragrance behind, just a feeling of clean. Of course i can't see that it effectively kills germs I can only assume that it does!

      I like the way it leaves a nice sheen to things and is safe to use. I am the proud owner or 4 adult hamsters and at the moment 4 baby ones and I am really careful with what I use around them considering I had 7 babies recently die on me and this I feel is safe to help me clean out their cages and not be harmful.

      I like to use this on my work surfaces and toilet and around my taps and door handles and places like that as really...well you never know what you or anyone else could catch!

      I like this product and I have confidence in its abilities and so am happy to buy this time and time again in the future!

      Only available in Asda stores costing a pound a bottle.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      overall a good cleaner anti-bacterial spray

      As i have a touch of o.c.d im always trying to combat ways of killing germs that possibly my lovely little kiddie winks have brought home with them or even my little doggie lola(although she couldn't bring her mummy germs in because she just too cute) Anyway i'm that bad or good you might say that the kids are always harping on about germs and not drinking out of same glasses e.c.t that i have to be careful sometimes so i don't make them a bunch of hypo's ha! but as i used to have my own little cafe and have been on different courses i no the effects of poor hygiene.I don't want to scare or harp on bout certain forms of bacteria coz its boring and i need to talk about the product so here goes.


      THE CLEANER
      Its a clear solution and claims to kill 99% of bacteria such as "sam" and "ella" sorry(salmonella),listeria,and Ecoli and 3 other nasty little blighters you wouldn't want i could list them but save you the boring read!. It states that it cleans and protects without odour(i come to that in a bit!)and doesn't stain surfaces.I use this product everywhere from the worktops to the sink,bin lids,door handles,taps,phone,microwave, cupboard doors you name it if its not stuck down it gets zapped with my spray gun.I have to be careful as nobody wants germs! but as im not well my husband has not got a spleen and my little girl is under hospital for same thing so could end up haveing hers out and that means there immune system not as good among other things so i have to have a BUG FREE house.I always wear gloves with any chemicals even though this is not stated it does say people with sensitive skin should not use for a long amount of time so i suggest gloves!I like to wash the area first with clean soapy water(sorry common sense),
      to get rid of spillages,grease,fingermarks e.c.t then just a quick wipe to get rid of the soapiness then start to spray.Turn the spray nozzle to the on that is marked on the blue square bit of the nozzle a few little blasts and it starts to come through,i always spray at arms lenght away from face and eyes onto the surface you are cleaning.When im cleaning door handles with the cleaner i use a (i call them old j-cloths so cheap from asda also usually about ten in a pack for pennies.)so i spray the cloth a couple of times scrunch the cloth up and get cracking with the cleaning.There is no need to rinse the cleaner off so try not to use too much a little does go a long way!Right the aroma IT STATES that there is no smell but i have keen sense off smell nothing gets past my hooter!but i can smell this!It does smell clean and fresh and has a kind of pine fragrance to it(that will be the disinfectant in it)its not overpowering and soon goes but sometimes i think pine smells of LOOS! but im not overly put off by the scent.





      THE INGREDIENTS
      lESS THAN 5% non ionic surfactants (the usual for cleaning solutions)
      Disinfectant
      AND PERFUME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!





      THE PACKAGING
      It comes in a 500ml clear bottle with a sticker on the front stating what the product is and on the back the directions for use -about the product,the ingredients,the warning(which i think i've said more to be honest!)
      and the caution -ventilate room after use keep away from kiddies dont drink (yuk) but most importantly
      do not allow pets(especially cats r r r) to walk on the surfaces you have just cleaned with the cleaner or until they are dry because cats like to lick and clean their paws e.c.t so not good!aslong as left a good deal of time to dry should be ok!.The spray nozzle is a bit on the leaky side so make sure after use you turn the nozzle to off i've left open before by mistake live and learn!.Also on the back label is the ASDA try me love me guarantee -if you not happy with the product they will refund AND replace smashing good old ASDA!











      RECOMMENDATIONS
      I like this product (i do honest.)I think its good value for money its under a pound 97p last time i checked but prices do change from time to time but sure wont be much more.I would pay £1.20 for it but dont tell ASDA.
      It does state that its a cleaner aswell as an anti-bacterial spray but i like the good oldfashioned soapy water before i de-germ but thats just me. It would do as good a job- its what you are used to.My bottle usually last me a good 2-3 weeks depending how well i am to clean, kids and hubby do it for me then but i usually sneak and do again but ive got faith in the ASDA brand and whats 1% between friends

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Does exactly the same as the more expensive product

        I picked up this Asda anti-bacterial cleaner as it's quite a bit cheaper than Dettol and is supposed to do exactly the same thing. It's a clear liquid anti-bacterial spray that is used to clean and protect all surfaces including food surfaces by killing 99.9% of bacteria.

        To use it all you have to do is rotate the nozzle at the top to open and close and then spray onto the surface from a fair distance away so that the liquid spreads out on the surface. The liquid should then be wiped with a cloth or sponge to clean the rest of the surface.

        There isn't really much of a smell to this, just a slightly soapy scent which makes the place smell fresh and clean. It leaves all the surfaces that it touches looking sparkly clean and brand new and when you wipe across surfaces with a cloth it takes away all the dust and dirt that may have been there before as well as effectively removing any greasy stains.

        For only 90p, which is around £1 cheaper than Dettol, I think this Asda spray is totally worth it. From where I'm sitting, it smells the same and works exactly the same as the more expensive brand, so why pay out more when this is just as good.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not one I will be using again!

          I have come to the conclusion I am abit Obsessive Compulsive about cleaning. I think this has come to not having a Tear Duct in my left eye which causes me alot of infections. If you read my reviews you will find I have already reviewed an Anti-Bacterial cleaner which I just love.

          However, my favorite apple cleaner has gone up in price! I was mortified when I made my monthly shopping trip to Iceland and the cleaner had gone up a whole 50p! It is now £2.00 and as we don't have a lot of money coming into our house I really think this is a high price for the spray.

          So I asked my mum to pick up something for me when she went to our local Asda which is about 50 miles away. And she came home with the Asda's own Anti-Bacterial cleaner.

          The cleaner itself comes in a trigger spray clear bottle so you can see the liquid on the inside. It is shapped to fit in the palm of your hand and the trigger spray pump, the on off switch and screw on top is blue. The liquid itself is clear and the bottle advises it is for use on food surfaces with built in protection against bacteria.

          So off I went on my cleaning mission to Anti-bacterial everything and make my kitchen all shiny. As soon as I made that first sray I just couldn't breathe. The cleaner is so harsh and I can taste it. It just hits the back of your throat and made me feel so tight chested (I don't suffer with breathing problems so this was a bit concerning).

          Once I was over the initial not being able to breathe, the cleaner itself did a fantastic job on my cupboards, worktops and sinks. The shine that was left afterwards was amazing and my worktops were gleaming.

          Looking at the back of the bottle it advises you not to use the product on Carpets, Soft Furnishing, Polished Furniture, Windows or Mirrors. Also always hands and dry after use. There goes using it on my dining table. I am now going to have to buy another cleaner for spills on the carpet, coffee table and dining table.

          For £1.00 for 500ml I though this was a bargain but as I had to buy another cleaner for the tables I have spent more money than if I would have bought the original one I had wanted. Plus with the Apple one I would have a lovely smell instead of fighting for breath with every spray.

          This is one own brand I will not be using again.
