Dettol Multi-Action 4in1 Trigger
Advantages: Top performing, pleasant smelling cleaner from this trusted brand
I bought this multi-action trigger spray cleaner as part of Asda's terrific Big Clean offer* (see below). Even though I got this product at a snip I would not hesitate buying it again at the full recommended retail price. I did have some reservations about Dettol products, namely that they impart that unbecoming smell of a seventies hospital. However, the pink grapefruit essence in this product largely neutralises any trace of Eau De General Hospital. There is admittedly the faintest whiff of antiseptic, but this reassures rather than repulses.

The spray is fitted with a revolving nozzle, which locks and unlocks through 180'°. You need to keep the bottle upright and spray 20-25cm away from the intended surface. It is then recommended that you leave for up to 5 minutes depending on the severity of the task in hand, wipe and then rinse. For a deep shine it is then advised that you then rub over the area with a dry cloth/towel. Rinsing is particularly important on food contact surfaces. If you are unsure about a surface it is recommended that you test for 5 minutes on an inconspicuous area first.
Its claim to cut through grease and soap scum certainly holds up. I have tried it on kitchen surfaces, sinks, bath, tiles and toilet to equal effect.
Dispensation on to the surface revealed a satisfying froth of bubbles. I found it more effective to lightly squeeze or 'feather' the trigger for a more efficient and even distribution as pressing too hard causes wastage and isolated puddles. Even when I left the cleaner for a couple of minutes the remnants of oil, fat and other food were made scarce with a cursory wipeover. After rinsing I duly buffed over the area with a dry towel to reveal a gleaming sheen, as promised. This was evident on a variety of surfaces, including our habitiually shine-shy kitchen worktop. It even removed all traces of the ubiquitous turmeric from the draining board - possibly the stain of stains.
The 500ml bottle is nicely designed with curves in all the right places for the trigger-happy. There are two finger-friendly recesses beneath the nozzle, which facilitate simultaneous support and discharge of the product. I have quite long fingers and find it easy to cradle my ring and middle fingers into the aforementioned grooves. However, those with smaller digits may find it easier to lend extra reach to their index/trigger finger by resting their little and ring fingers in the recesses. The bottle is clearly labelled, and includes all expected information.
The PET symbol indicates that thepackaging is recyclable by most local
authorities. The label also displays two ethically-led websites www.ourhome-ourplanet.com and www.sustainable-cleaning.com It also advocates the use of a re-usable cleaning cloth as opposed to paper towels, with the reassurance that this will not compromise the bacteria killing potency of the product. Furthermore, the label includes the Green Dot, demonstrating the manufacturer's wider commitment to recyclable packaging.
This cleaner needs to be kept out of the reach of children. Contact with eyes should be remedied by immediate rinsing with plenty of water and medical advice sought. Do not mix with bleach or any other product.
