“ Brand: Others / Type: Disinfectants / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
I had to do an emergency shop with Tesco.com for groceries, simply because there was far too much of an echo in the kitchen-nothing was in it! One of the things that I ordered was the Daisy disinfectant and this was for acouple of reasons: 1. Ive used the wipes and found them to clean well and be very fragrant.2. It was 97p, you cant argue with that price!
What is it?
Its a budget brand available in Tesco. This product is 1ltre of floral disinfectant that can be used on a variety of different surfaces and rooms.
What does the packaging look like?
Its in a standard plastic bottle with a handy handle to make carrying around easier.Screw top lid. The bottle itself is clear so you can see the bright pink disinfectant. Label on the back has all relevant information on in regards to how to use, ingredients etc.Easy to read, print big enough. Label on the front is quite colourful but basic, with a huge picture of a daisy on the front and the name ' Daisy '.
How to use?
Like any disinfectant there are a variety of ways to use this product. It can be used to clean walls, tiles, floors, toilets, drains eand even laundary.
General duties-mix 4 capfuls to 5 litres of water and wipe surfaces that are washable-tiles, worktops etc.
Toilet, sinks and drains-pour 3 capfuls undiluted around toilet bowel, drains and sinks.
Laundary-mix 4 capfuls per 5 litres of cold water to soak items such as cloth nappies, hankerchiefs etc before washing.
Ingredients are as follows:non ionic surfactants, disinfectant:benzalkonium chloride, perfume, amyl cinnamel.
So what do I think?
I liked the thickness of the product, it was just right. I hate it when a disinfectant are too watery and it makes me feel like Im wiping surfaces with just diluted water! The smell I liked in the bottle,quite floral with a touch of fruityness to it.It wasnt overwhelming, but thought how nice my floors would smell after cleaning. I used the product to clean some floors, which it did the job and cleaned just fine.But I was disappointed in the smell. I could smell it when I was mopping the floor slightly but I cant smell it now, and that was less than 30 minutes ago.
Going back to the packaging of the item, I didnt like the fact it was a simple screw top and there was no child safety cap on it,or at least make it alittle more difficult to open.Some of the product leaked out of the bottle before I even opened the bag it was in.It was so easy to open it was like it was already opened. I appreciate its a cheap product to purchase, but you do have to feel that some thought went into its packaging on a practical level, not necessarily on how it looks.
Would I buy again?Probably not. Yes it cleans, but with no real hit of fragrance, its not going to be memorable.
~*~*~ Daisy Floral Disinfectant ~*~*~
~ What is it? ~
This is a pink coloured multi-purpose disinfectant from the brand Daisy which is a discount brand sold in Tesco stores. It has a floral fragrance.
~ Usage ~
It can be used neat on toilets, sinks and drains and can be use diluted for use on floors, walls, tiles, bins, and general cleaning.
~ Why I bought this ~
With Christmas soon approaching I have been trying to make an effort to reduce my weekly shopping bills in order to be able to afford nice treats and things over Christmas, I don't really want to cut back on the amount we buy so it has been more of an effort to use cheaper items around the home, I have been buying the Daisy bathroom cleaner for a while as I find it as effect as the branded cleaners so when I spotted this on the shelf I picked it up and popped it into my trolley and I was glad I did when I saw that a bottle of Flash cost over double the price this did!
The first thing that really grabbed me though was the colour. It is a delightful pink colour which I am sure all us girly girls will love!
~ Packaging ~
This comes in a slightly frosted transparent plastic bottle, it is a slim squared off type bottle with a neat handle on the side which is great for ease of use. It is topped with white screw top cap.
The label tells us what we need to know.
Through the bottle the pink liquid inside is visable and I think it really stands out on the shelf.
~ Price & Availability ~
This is available in Tesco stores. It comes in a 1l bottle and will cost you a very cheap 98p.
~ Usage and Thoughts ~
Not being one for overly floral products I was a bit sceptical as I was expecting the scent to be a bit over powering with this being such a cheaply priced product however when I came to use it I was pleasantly surprised.
Usually I would use my flash mop for floor cleaning but having run out of the pads for the underneath I have resorted to using my traditional string mop and bucket. My floors were in dire need of a clean after not being done for three days after running out of aforementioned pads so when I got in I put my shopping away, flicked the kettle on for a cuppa and filled my mop bucket with boiling water from the tap. I then added a slosh of this disinfectant into the bucket, this is the first time I had smelt this and I found it a nice pleasant scent, it has a nice clean scent which is slightly floral but not that floral that it's headache inducing.
I then mopped the laminate flooring in my living room, it got the floor clean straight away, any stubborn marks like pop splashes came away with no heavy scrubbing. The scent generally smelt more clean and fresh and I was pleased with how clean my floor was looking.
I then moved onto the kitchen where I first made myself a cuppa and then mopped the kitchen floor. I was pleased to see that my kitchen floor looked bright and clean immediately.
When finished I took my cuppa and sat down and as the floor started to dry I was very impressed to see the glorious shine on my floor.
I had to look from a few different angles as my floor has never looked this shiny and I was very impressed with the finish this disinfectant had left.
Having a clean floor is very important to me as I have my little one crawling around and playing with his toys on the floor and seeing my floor looking this shiny makes me think that my previous way (flash mop) wasn't cleaning the floor as well as I thought it was!
I have also poured a glug of this down my kitchen sink, just to freshen it up and I am also impressed with it when used like this.
~ Overall ~
As you can probably tell I don't have anything bad to say about this product. Priced at 98p it certainly is one of my better bargain buys.
I am grateful to Tesco for introducing me to this Daisy range as I have yet to try a bad Daisy product.
We all like to keep our homes looking clean and smelling good and Daisy allows this at budget prices.
I am very impressed and will be making a trip to Tesco especially for some more of this.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Excluding the value disinfectants this was the cheapest on the shelves at under £1.00 which helps when your trying to stick to a shopping budget.
The first thing you notice about this disinfectant is the smell, for a cheap cleaning product it smells surprisingly lovely and fresh, the next thing is that you don't need to pour vast amounts into your water for it to actually clean and stay smelling fresh.
This disinfectant works very well as a floor cleaner as well as a disinfectant which is ideal for us as we have two children under 2years old and two big dogs, so we have to remove paw prints, food stains and other marks that come with having children and animals which this product does very well. We use it on tiled floors, laminate floors and lino, it cleans and disinfects all surfaces well. We also use on our kitchen work tops, as with the floors you only need a little amount and it does a great job. Top marks.
I shop in several of the big supermarkets and this means that I often get to try out lots of new products. I am always on the look out for a household cleaning product that will live up to my high expectations and when the Daisy brand first started appearing in my supermarket I thought about trying it. As time went on and I saw my friend using a few of the products in her house I decided to give it a go and purchased a few items, some of which I use quite regularly now.
I purchased this Daisy floral disinfectant to clean my bathroom floor with. I paid under £1.00 for this disinfectant and it is still available now for just 98p. This price is for a 1 litre bottle. You can purchase this in Tesco stores or from the Tesco.co.uk website.
I must admit that the main reason that this stood out to me in Tesco was because of the rather garish pink colour of this. I was drawn in by this bright packaging and figured I would give it a try. The packaging is basic being a plastic bottle with a long handle part and the liquid within is pink.
This disinfectant should be used 1 part to 50 parts water. I tend to just fill up my mop bucket and throw in one or sometimes two caps of liquid. I then swish this around in the bucket and then use my mop to clean my bathroom floor over. I only tend to use this disinfectant for my floor and I could probably make up a much smaller amount of water and disinfectant but I like to know I am doing a good job and it is simple enough to pour the water away afterwards.
This disinfectant is quite thin when it comes out from the bottle and there is a definite floral smell that is strong without being overpowering and I quite like the smell of my bathroom once the floor has been cleaned using a made up solution of this disinfectant. The smell lasts for a short while after I have used this and it does have a strong smell but one that I like anyway.
Overall I have found this product very good quality. I have been pleased with the price and while I was initially just drawn to the colour of the liquid I have found the floral smell to be quite nice too. My bathroom floor looks and feels clean after I have used this so overall I am pleased with the results and would definitely recommend this.
Cleaning chores around my home I do quite a lot, I enjoy cleaning but I like to clean with good cleaning products so that it saves time and the job is done much quicker. This disinfectant I bought to see if it worked as good as a branded one. It is cheap and Tesco's own brand of cheaper products.
It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle with a screw off top. It also has a handy grip handle at the side of the bottle. I find this handle very useful to pour the liquid from the bottle. The opening of this handle is adequate to place a male hand through with no problems at all.
The liquid inside the bottle is pink in colour. It has a really nice flowery smell to it and smells really nice indeed. It smells very refreshing and not at all disgusting as I first thought it may when I first bought it. I couldn't have more wrong with the smell of it.
A small amount is needed for this one to work, I use it in a solution of hot water to clean around my home. I use it to clean my floors and tiles and even my worktops to give them a good clean. I use it neat for my work surfaces sometimes just to kill the germs etc. it is very easy to rinse from surfaces used diluted or neat.
I clean my kitchen bin with this product. It cleans it well and leaves it smelling nice and fresh. It is good for drains and sinks. I pour a small amount down my sinks about once a week just to refresh them and to help any germs that are lurking in them. A solution of it to clean sinks is really good too and I use it to clean door handles sometimes because this is an area that germs like to lurk around. It kills the germs well and leaves them nice and clean. It is good to clean toilets and tiles too.
Just one capful is needed in water to clean well. I use a little bit more if I am using a lot more water so that there is enough in it to clean larger areas.
For a 1 litre bottle this one is priced at around 91p and so a good price for this amount of disinfectant in the bottle. It is very good quality and excellent value for the price. I will keep on buying this one because it kills germs well and leaves a nice fresh smell in the rooms after using it. I do recommend it and for the cheap price it is a good product to save a little money.
I rate it 5 stars.
I seem to have traipsed back from Tesco with quite a few Daisy products lately, have you tried the Daisy washing powder ? It might be cheap and cheerful but for a light wash it works very well indeed.
Daisy may well be the Tesco discount range but I think that they have gone all out to make the packaging look colourful, the disinfectant bottle is bright pink plastic and the label has a big flashy white daisy printed on the bottom of it. It makes a change from the red, white and blue of the Tesco Value range.
Most of us use disinfectant at some time or another, I like to give my bathroom a good going over once in a while, it makes it feel clean and fresh.
When I disinfect the tiles I don't dilute the liquid but for many other jobs I put a couple of capfuls of disinfectant into a bucket filled with hot water. Whereas Dettol clouds the water Daisy just blends in unnoticed.
Daisy thick floral disinfectant costs 87p for a litre bottle, good value. A fairly thin floral smelling liquid that does the job in hand. I can't decide from where the floral smell originates, it is light and uncomplicated yet I am not able to detect any one single scent, just a bouquet.
I decided a long time ago that pine disinfectant just was not for me, for some unknown reason the smell always reminds me of public toilets, not the greatest or most attractive of smells!
If and when you decide to give Daisy disinfectant a trial run then you will have to bear in mind that this is a discount product, if you want a brand name, Zoflora or Dettol for instance then you have to be prepared to pay real money.
The whole idea of disinfecting anything is to eradicate germs, so given that bathrooms are a breeding ground it is just the ticket for floors, sink and bath and toilet and tiles.
Another little job that Daisy disinfectant has done for me lately is made the drains smell a little sweeter, I agree that the sweet smell doesn't last long but at least you know that they have been disinfected.
If you take a look at the label they say that you can soak your soiled laundry in water laced with disinfectant, I have never tried this, I always imagine that the solution will have a lasting effect on the laundry and that I will be walking around smelling rather unusual.
The manufacturers recommend it for general household use, they also say that it is perfectly safe to use if you have a septic tank.
5 litres of water will need 3 capfuls of disinfectant and they also state that it is good for cleaning out pet beds.
I feel that if you want a disinfectant that will cope well with light work then Daisy could be the ideal product for you, if you have some heavy duty disinfecting to do then maybe it would pay to invest in a bottle of the strong stuff.
Don't be tempted to think that the disinfectant will clean off dirt and grime, that has to be cleaned away long before you start to disinfect.
All in all I would put Daisy in the bantamweight category but it still has many uses.
Maybe it would be fair to give the product a 7 out of 10, pay more and you will get a heavyweight disinfectant.
Daisy is a budget brand that have been brought out in Tesco's in response to people looking to save money on general household products and they have a good range of cleaning products such as dishwasher tablets, washing up liquids and the one I'm reviewing, disinfectant.
Initially what drew me to this bottle was the bright pink colour, shocking I know but it really stood out on the shelf and at 87p, it was cheaper than the majority of the other brands on the shelf as well as not looking too cheap and nasty.
The bottle itself is made of see through plastic and holds 1 litre, the lid is plain white and there is nothing especially fancy about the packaging or the label, as I say the main thing I think that attracts is the bright pink colour of the liquid inside, you can't miss it!
The ingredients list isn't that long and as it's a floral scent, it does tell you that it contains perfume. There are a handy list of directions on the back including telling you that it can be used neat on toilets, down drains and diluted 1 part to 50 to wash floors and for general cleaning. I've not really taken much notice of what concentration is needed from other brands but this doesn't seem to be very much so 1 litre should last you a good while.
The liquid is actually quite thin but it doesn't advertise itself as being a concentrated formula so I can forgive that. The scent is quite pleasant, very flowery but actually not too over powering but you can smell the bleach in it too which I always find kinda clean smelling anyway. Even used neat it doesn't stink the room out like normal pine cleaner but leaves a nice whiff if you're hanging around the kitchen sink which is fine by me.
I've used it neat down the kitchen sink and diluted for the kitchen and bathroom floors and it works quite well. I haven't noticed any difference between this and the more expensive brands in cleaning power except that the perfume smell doesn't linger, which isn't too much of a bad thing considering the price. It doesn't leave any residue behind after you mop the floors and even when you use it on shiny tiles they come up sparkling clean with no streaks.
I was also quite impressed that it had a childproof cap although a bit of a flimsy one as the bright pink liquid may be a draw to little ones,
All in all a bargin price for a nice smelling disinfectant that leaves your floors shiny and clean, definitely one I'll buy again.
