“ Brand: Fairy / Type: Washing Up Liquid / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
When it comes to washing up liquid, this is one area where I'm fiercely brand-loyal. It's only Fairy for me - I've tried many different brands over the years but invariably they are much thinner and make less and thinner bubbles than Fairy. Consequently they don't last anywhere near as long as a bottle of Fairy, so end up being false economy.
Before Christmas, there was an offer on Fairy at my local supermarket at 2 bottles for £2, and I noticed that the offer included this apple variety in a size larger than the standard bottle - it contains 630ml. I really like apple fragranced products, I find the fragrance clean and fresh, so I picked up one bottle of this along with one regular.
The apple scent is evident but certainly not overpowering in this washing up liquid. The cleanness and freshness is really pleasant though, and it's a scent suited to washing up in my opinion - not over flowery or heavily fragranced.
The consistency of the liquid seems to me to be ever-so-slightly thinner than standard Fairy - maybe that explains the price equality between the two even though the bottle sizes are different. The liquid runs from the bottle when it's turned upside down, whereas normal Fairy needs a slight squeeze. That said, there is no noticeable loss of thick and lasting bubbles, and the liquid does the same great job - any dried-on dirty glasses and dishes are easily cleaned when left to soak for just a minute or so... it's just that (if measured) I guess I'm using a bit more of this per bowl than I would standard Fairy.
I really like this product and it does a great job but I think I prefer standard Fairy for the traditional smell and the extra reassurance of that thicker consistency which gives you the reassurance that you have spent the extra pence wisely.
Fairy is a top quality brand of washing up liquid, which comes in a variety of fragrances, and from what I've used so far the best of the bunch for me is Apple Orchard.
Currently on sale in ASDA for £1 for a 433ml bottle, and £2 for a 1.25 litre bottle, these compare reasonably well to the own brands on offer such as the ASDA apple & pear washing up liquid that is currently priced at 87p for 740ml. In fact, like a good consumer, I might give that one a go next.
This Fairy liquid comes in a transparent bottle which has nice looking grooves shaped into the design, and at the top we have the standard red flip top that you find on these products. There are stickers on the front and back of the bottle, with the usual fairy branding and some simple information about washing your hands thoroughly after using this product.
The liquid inside is green like an apple orchard washing up liquid should be. It's lighter and more vibrant than the traditional green washing up liquid colour we're accustomed to seeing. The lid is easy to flip open with a little click up with the thumb (or whatever opening technique you decide to employ) and it clicks down firmly enough so that nothing can escape in the event of the bottle getting knocked over.
The smell is a very pleasant apple smell and it actually adds a bit of enjoyment to the monotonous task of washing up when you have a nice scent rising out of the sink. When using it, you only need to add a quick squirt to the running hot water as it foams up really well and the magic ingredients in the liquid do a great job of helping clean the dishes, cutlery and pans etc, leaving them with a very nice fresh smell. I've also noticed that the bubbles last for a very long time, which is another plus point as you can have a break and come back to the bubbles looking like they've lost none of their potency to get the job done.
With greasy dishes and more stubborn burnt-in foodstuff for example, this liquid has performed really well for me, and I haven't had to scrub for very long with these items before they are clean (with the aid of hot water that is). With rinsing the items, it's also quick and easy to get rid of any suds or liquid, and if you feel in the mood you can then rub your finger down a plate for that satisfying squeak.
I don't use rubber gloves for washing up as I somehow always manage to fill up the gloves with water during the process anyway, so there's no benefit. My skin is always in direct contact with the bubbles/liquid, and I haven't had any problems with sensitive skin or the product giving me any irritation. As it says on the back of the bottle, just make sure you always rinse your hands thoroughly after using it.
So in conclusion, this is as good a washing up liquid as I could expect to find anywhere, and it has a nice scent to boot. Other fragrances in the Fairy range include Lime & Lemongrass, Silk & Orchid, Eucalyptus, Apple Fizz, Lemon Burst, Orange Crush, Pomegranate & Honeysuckle, Tangerine & Ginger, Lemon, and of course Original. The Fairy brand is a little more expensive than similar-sounding supermarket brands, but when it comes to such a monotonous task, if it can be made easier with a superior product, for me it's worth it.
As I have mentioned before I love trying different kinds of washing up liquid and am not loyal to any particular brand. I like the range of different scents that are available, especially fresh ones and one that I like more than any other is apple. I picked up this bottle of Fairy apple orchard washing up liquid in Tesco about a month ago.
The liquid comes in a clear plastic bottle with a plastic red flip top lid. On the front it shows the fairy logo and above that it says 'mega pack' and underneath the logo it tells you that it is 'apple orchard' with some pictures of some apples. At the top underneath the lid it has a red sticker that says 'bigger size, better value.' On the back it gives directions of use, lists ingredients, gives the bottle size, (1.25L) and gives some brand contact information.
Product and use.
The liquid is green in colour and has a thick consistency. It has a lovely fresh apple scent. To use flip open the lid and add the desired amount to warm water.
Price and availability.
The product is available from some supermarkets and stores as well as on line. I purchased it from Tesco but could not find it on their website. Asda and Wilkinsons currently have it priced at £2.00 for the 1.25L size bottle.
My experience and verdict.
I am really happy with this product. It lathers up really well and cleans dirty pots effectively. It has a lovely fresh apple fragrance. I purchased it about a month ago and still have plenty left in the bottle so this is really good value for money.
I love Fairy washing up liquid. I have been buying it for many years. The brand is very reliable and worth the money in my opinion. It has been around for many years and it is one of my favourite washing up liquids. I know when I buy Fairy it is going to clean my dishes very well and leave them nice and clean.
It comes in a transparent plastic bottle, the bottle is slim and very easy to hold comfortably in the hands. I can get a good grip of the bottle without dropping it because it isn't bulky. The liquid is green in colour. Immediately the lid is flipped back I can detect the smell of apples, it is a fruity smell which also has a hint of perfume too. It isn't an overpowering smell and one that is just a beautiful fresh fragrance. The combination of the apples and hint of perfume work really well together.
With this liquid only a small amount is needed in the water to give for a good amount of bubbles. It lathers really well because it is of a very high quality. It cuts into grease perfectly and dissolves it almost instantly. It removes the dirt from my dishes in no time at all. It works well to clean glasses and leave them with a really good sparkle, just how I like my glasses to look after cleaning them.
I use a little of this liquid to soak my saucepans when I have burned them sometimes. I just pour a little liquid in the saucepans and then just add hot water and leave them to stand for a hour or so and the food is removed with a gentle scrub with a scourer or cloth. It just works well into burned pans to just gentle dissolve the food.
It cleans cutlery really well too and any crockery that needs to be cleaned. I find the bubbles don't dissolve in the time that I am washing my dishes, so I don't have to keep adding any more liquid to the water, which is good because it then means the liquid has staying power in water. Nothing worse than having to keep on adding my liquid while washing the dishes in my opinion.
It is very easy to rinse from the dishes, it just leaves them nice and clean. Sometimes I just leave my dishes in water in the sink to just soak for a while and then wash them. This is not necessary to clean them well but it is just something I do occasionally if I am busy doing other things around the kitchen. After rinsing the dishes don't have a taste of the liquid on dishes and no residue is left on any dishes.
I like to soak my dishcloths at the end of the day to leave over night in the sink. This liquid cleans them really well after soaking and just leaves them nice and clean and ready to use again the next day.
It also leaves the sink nice and clean too because it works well to clean it while washing the dishes and so it is also a multi purpose cleaner in my opinion. There is no smell on the dishes after they have dried. It leaves no smell at all after rinsing the dishes.
It also doesn't drip from the bottle while pouring it into the water, the liquid is has a very rich consistency and one that is very soft, smooth and a nice texture. Just a quick squeeze of the bottle is enough to clean dishes well.
I bought my last bottle for only a £1 on special offer, the amount of liquid in the bottle for this price is 433ml. Fairy often have special offers on their washing up liquids, so it is always best to look out for them and buy them while on offer and save a few pennies and stock up for a later date.
I love this liquid, it is excellent and has never let me down. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good liquid that cleans dishes well and in no time at all. This liquid gives me all the results I need for cleaning my dishes and I will buy it again in the future because it is worth every single penny spent. Fairy really have got it right with this washing up liquids as it has with all the fragrances it now has available in the supermarkets.

I give this liquid 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I don't tend to deviate too much in regards to brands I use for my washing up liquid. One time I bought a very cheap non branded one and it was awful! Failed miserably in cleaning my dirty dishes and I had to use so much it was obvious the original cheap price was a false economy. So in general I either buy Morning Fresh or Fairy. This particular version of the well known washing up liquid, in apple fragrance, was bought from Asda in the 1250ml size for £2.00.
Why did I buy this?
I bought this because the value was exceptional for the amount of product you get. Asda seem to be selling this size in different fragrances for sometime now at the £2.00 price, so don't feel as if I have to stock pile due to availability. I bought this particular fragrance because I hadn't tried this one before. My previous one I was using was the pomegranate which I loved, and wonder if I would like this one too.
How is it packaged?
It comes in a 1250ml clear plastic bottle with a flip top lid to allow product to be poured/squeezed out of. The shape of the bottle is slightly on the curvy side rather than straight up and down. Where its synched closer to the top means its very comfortable and easy to hold.
On the front on the label is the infamous ' Fairy 'logo, with the words Mega Pack above. Colouring of the label is green around edges with pictures of apples to depict the fragrance.
On the back brief description of ingredients, hand care advise and company contact details and size of product.
5-15% Anionic Surfactants , <5% Non-Ionic Surfactants , Phenoxyethanol , Methylisothiazolinone , Perfumes , Geraniol , Limonene , Linalool .
How to use
This is how I use it at least! Run a good squirt of the liquid under warm running water, then wash plates, cutlery etc. I use a double sided sponge to use in conjunction with the liquid to remove dirt and food. If there are any stubborn stains I add a little extra actually on the item that needs a thorough clean then scrub with sponge and rinse.
How do I find it?
Im a sucker for a little bit of colour, and the fact the liquid is green ( but not as dark as the original formulation ) gives it a slight sense of fun. The washing up liquid itself is just the right thickness to work effectively.
It bubbles up beautifully and you don't need to use a huge amount for a decent lather, but Im always very generous as Im heavy handed!
It cleans my dishes/plates/cutlery very well, regardless of whether they are lightly dirty with food/grease etc or has heavily baked on food ( obviously requires a bit more elbow grease! ). Either way, I can wash whatever is in the kitchen sink reasonably quickly, no major effort needed.
As someone who suffers from psoriasis, I don't feel this dries out my hands or irritates them at all. Occasionally my psoriasis does appear on my hands and this hasn't bothered it.
My only criticism with this product is the smell. I like it-it's a fresh, clean apple scent with a touch of floral to it which provides sweetness, but its not strong enough for me. This is down to personal taste, but I assumed it would be just as strong as the last fragrance I had which was the pomegranate. Its light and subtle in smell, not overpowering or travels all the way through the kitchen but I need a touch more.
Would I buy this again? I don't see why not. It does the job well, good quality product, easy and pleasant to use and was bought at a great price. Fragrance not my first choice but that's down to the strength, not how it actually smells.
Fairy washing up liquid is a favourite of mine, I love the different varieties Fairy produce. I know when I buy a Fairy product that it is usually always going to be good quality and worth the money. I buy this one quite a lot.
The liquid comes housed in a clear plastic bottle with a flip back top. The liquid is a bright green gel looking liquid inside the bottle. Quite fresh looking too and looks nice. It is a very rich textured liquid which is also quite a rich consistency, so it doesn't drip from the bottle. Quite handy when my grandchildren wash the dishes while staying in my home.
You don't need much of the liquid to have lots of lather in the hot water, just a quick squeeze of the bottle into the water and it is enough. Too much creates too many bubbles and it isn't needed, so this liquid does last for quite some time.
It has a nice apple smell to it, one that is quite nice and a strong smell of apples.Very pleasant smell indeed and not too much that it makes the dishes smell not so good. It is easy to rinse from dishes too.
When it comes to greasy plates or pans, it cuts into the grease well, it melts the grease in no time at all. Means because it cuts well into grease you don't have to keep on cleaning them for too long. It cleans all cutlery and anything you may need to wash in the sink. Good for cleaning pans and removes any burned on food. Just a simple soak in a solution of the liquid easily removes the food.
It removes germs very well, just in the same way as any other good brand of liquid to be honest but it still kills germs very well indeed. It does clean glasses very well and leaves them sparkling and gleaming.
The bubbles last for ages in the water, which is what I like about this liquid because if I have forgotten to wash a cup or glass and I haven't pulled the plug in the sink, it means I can still wash them if the water is still hot enough. The bubbles seem to be the same at least half a hour after I have squeezed it into the hot water, many longer than this amount of time, which shows how good a quality it actually is.
It is a gentle liquid and is good enough to keep the skin soft if you don't wear rubber gloves, I don't wear gloves and I haven't had any problems with it irritating my skin or the skin of my grandchildren.
I really do like this liquid and I think it is a good quality. For a 433ml bottle I paid just a £1 from my local shop. It is often on offer at supermarkets so it is worth waiting until you see an offer to buy this liquid.
I am pleased with the value for money it gives to clean dishes and I will keep buying it.
I rate it 5 stars.
Fairy Apple Washing Up Liquid is a product which I use from time to time. Fairy is usually my washing up liquid of choice, but I do vary the fragrance just because I actually like most of them and so it's just a matter of what I fancy at the time of purchase. The washing up liquid comes in a 650ml bottle and costs just £1.00 from Tescos which I feel is a really good price and one that I'm more than willing to pay as the bottle will last me and my family about two weeks.
The washing up liquid comes in a plastic squeezy bottle which is transparent and so its possible to see that the washing up liquid is a lime green colour which looks fresh and appealing. The bottle has a flip lid at the top with a hole underneath which the washing up liquid can be squeezed through. The washing up liquid always comes out easily.
I find that I actually only need a small squirt of the washing up liquid to be squirted into warm running water in order to create a soapy tub of water. The fragrance of the washing up liquid is decidedly appley which smells fresh and clean - and I think it's a really appealing fragrance for a kitchen product. The washing up liquid actually cleans really well and cuts through grease well. If too much washing up liquid is added to the water then the dishes often need a quick rinse afterwards, but I find that if I'm not too liberal with the washing up liquid then the dishes don't need to be rinsed.
Overall, I think this is a good product and Fairy is a market leader for a reason.
It doesn't matter how big or how expensive the boat you are working on, the dishes still have to be washed, particularly if, like us you have a Boss who as soon as lunch is finished says "OK we go now!" This means that the dirty dishes never get the chance to go in the dish washer as it is not a good idea to have the china and glasses bouncing around in the dishwasher as we bound along at 20 knots or more! To get around this the dishes from the first course are (discreetly) put in a bucket and the deckie goes and washes them in the crew's quarters so that myself and the stewardess and sometimes the Captain if we are in a big rush, can attack the rest of the dishes by hand in the galley.
Fairy has always been my favourite washing up liquid and I always return to it even if I try something else or cannot source it. It cuts through grease and dirt extremely well and although I generally use the original for the last few weeks I have been using Fairy Apple. Why? Initially because of the size of the bottle. The 450ml bottle can fit behind the sink where there are storage cupboards . Every time I open these I knock the larger size bottle over until at last the light dawned, buy a smaller bottle stupid! I chose Fairy Apple as it has a pleasant slightly green apple fragrance and was not too strong or flowery, nobody could object to the scent. It comes in an easy to grip oval shaped clear plastic bottle with a bright red flip up top which is attached to the top, (also important for me, a split bottle on a galley floor in a sea way is not good!) The liquid itself is a bright, clear green and you do only need a little of it for a bowl full of dishes, too much and there is froth every where!
I have never been disappointed by it's cleaning power. Dishes and glasses come out sparkling clean and I never found that it irritates my skin. The fragrance is pleasant and it does not remain on the dishes and glasses in any way. I would certainly choose the apple fragrance again as a change from the traditional" Fairy". Besides washing the dishes I also use a blob of "Fairy" to clean my glasses as they often get covered with salt and again I find that it leaves my glasses smear free and sparkling. To me it is worth the extra few pennies to be confident that you are laying a table with sparkling table ware no matter who if it is champagne flutes for the guests or mugs of tea for the crew.
5 stars from me.
Readily available, do not get in your eyes and keep out of the reach of children.
Made by Proctor and Gamble, the container is recyclable.
Thank you for reading my review which may also be posted on Ciao under splishsplash
With six of us in this house I do an awful lot of washing up; I don't have a dishwasher and hate seeing a bowl full of dirty crocks so I tend to wash up as I go along - meaning I'm standing at the sink for probably at least ten minutes in every hour. I don't mind washing up though and don't want a dishwasher as I know I'm just not organised enough to keep on top of the loading and unloading.
So having a washing up liquid that I like is an absolute must. I usually go for the Fairy brand but don't really have a specific favourite 'flavour', I like to swap and change the fragrance varieties and this Apple & Lime
Blossom is the one I've been using for the past couple of weeks.
Like all of the Fairy range this is superb washing up liquid; a small squirt will produce a thick layer of bubbles for you to wash up in, it has fab cleaning power and smells absolutely gorgeous.
The smell is mainly of apple, I'm unsure what lime blossom smells like but there's definitely no aroma of the zesty fruit in this washing up liquid. I can however detect a faint floral perfume which softens the fruitiness a little but never quite manages to push through the stronger apple fragrance. I do love the smell of this washing up liquid and in some ways it is my favourite, but I find it doesn't have such a fresh and clean fragrance as some of the other Fairy varieties available.
When washing up this liquid will clean as well as any in the Fairy family; soaking plates and pans that have greasy or burned on stains will make them easy to remove, while lighter soiled crocks can be washed straight away and will come out sparkling. A little goes a long way with this stuff, if you initially squeeze too much liquid into the bowl you might find the apple scent taints the surface of your plates so you do need to give anything you wash in this particular fragrance an extra long rinse. This isn't specifically a problem to this variety as I've found it also happens with the Lavender one, with both especially affecting baking trays and metallic cookware.
I'll use yesterday as an example of how good this (and all) Fairy is. I was up late and came downstairs to a greasy bowl of luke-warm water that Mark had shoved his fatty frying pan in, then beside the sink was a plate which had both egg yolk and red sauce smeared all over it. After tipping the greasy vile water out of the bowl I replaced it with hot water and a squirt of Apple Fairy, left the pan to soak for a couple of minutes and then simply wiped it over with a dish cloth to get it back to it's usual clean self. The dried-on egg took a bit longer as it had solidified into a mass on the plate, but even so a hot soak for five minutes was all it took for the yellow gunk to literally slide and dissolve off the plate.
I also find this Fairy is great squirted on a sponge for wiping down any greasiness that has appeared on the work surfaces as it cuts through oily marks and leaves surfaces spotless.
It's as kind to your hands as you'd expect from Fairy, someone with normal skin should have no reaction at all - even sensitive types will probably be, although if you notice any soreness or itching just stick your Marigolds on to be on the safe side.
Not everywhere stocks this particular variety of Fairy, you'll find it in the supermarkets for 99p for a 500ml bottle. A lot of people say Fairy is expensive but I actually think it's very reasonably priced considering a bottle lasts at least twice as long as other brands (which aren't much cheaper in the first place!).
Washing up by hand seems to be nearing extinction. I have found that I am one of the only few out of my friends to wash dishes by hand. Dishwashers have been taking over and many people do not wash dishes by hand. I have never understood the reason for wanting a dishwasher because they are expensive to buy and run and they are not as good as washing by hand. A lot of my friends with dishwashers have large families and they would not be able to cope without a dishwasher but I still think that washing by hand is better.
Fairy has always been a household brand that my family have always used. It is a very common brand used my millions across the country. The liquid is produced by Procter and Gamble, a large multinational company. It is sold at major supermarkets and other houshold stores. It is widley available and is sold in many different sizes. My dad got a 5 litre one for £5 once at Tesco which lasted us a very long time. There are numerous offers on the washing up liquid but you have to look out for them. We don't buy them full price but get them when on offer and stock up on them so they last us till the next time they are on offer.
The liquid is in a clear bottle with the lid facing up so it is easy to see how much is left. When it is full it is important not to squeeze hard as too much liquid will come out (this has happened to me on a number of occassions). The other thing is that I have found that when there is only a little bit left I add a little water to the bottle by unscrewing the top and thereby getting the residual liquid out (this probably makes me sound tight!). The liquid comes out of the bottle really well.
I use fairly liquid almost all the time. The only time I don't is when I run out and it is not on offer. This is when I have encountered some terrible brands. I have also found that I only need a little bit to clean even the most stubben stains whereas with other cheaper brands I use more and it requires more elbow greese to make clean. This makes it good value even when it is full price. It is one of the more pricey brands but it is good quality. It is also non-irritable and it doesnt dry my skin. It smells good as well. They have different types and the most recent one I have used is the apple one. I have a huge fondness for apple scents and flavours so I was happy to find that fairy do an apple liquid.
Overall this is a very effective washing up liquid that does the job with minimum effort and is good value for money.
I am forever changing my brand of washing up liquid and today is no exception as I have gone back to Fairy washing up liquid but this time, a new scent their Green Apple & Lime Blossom scent. I thought it sounded like quite an unusual scent and I have always been a fan of the Fairy brand as they are what I would consider the best. This is a scent I had not yet used and it looked quite appealing which is why I decided to give it a go and throw it in my basket.
The packaging for this comes in the usual oval like shaped bottle and has the Fairy logo in red which stands out very boldly. Being a clear plastic bottle you can also see the bright green liquid and the label on the front has a picture of the ingredients which is quite nicely done and overall looks like a very nice product. It has the usual red lid and is a squeezy bottle which makes it easy to use. On the reverse is also a label which has all directions of use and ingredients listed.
GREEN APPLE & LIME BLOSSOM
This washing up liquid has some warnings on the reverse label such as making sure hands are thoroughly washed after using. Also, if you have damaged or sensitive skin then you should avoid prolonged contact with this as it will be damaging. I suffer sometimes from skin irritation with washing up liquids so I just tend to use my washing up gloves to also protect my hands and stop them from getting dry but it is up to yourself really what you do.
This washing up liquid is very straightforward and I usually use it with a sponge. I don't tend to use a big amount of it when I squeeze it out as I feel as soon as the liquid comes into contact with water it foams up really quickly. You can really smell the scent right away as soon as you start washing but it seems to be quite a strong apple scent which is more overpowering than the lime which isn't a bad thing as it creates a nice combination.
I think in terms of it actually cleaning that this washing up liquid is very effective and seems to do a very good job at cleaning dishes. The foam seems to really get stains off and even with tougher stains like pans that have food stuck to them if you leave them to soak with some of this for an hour or so then eventually it loosens up and it does come off easily. It doesn't smell like it will be strong at removing stains but all of my dishes come out really clean and almost gleaming.
I think if you are looking for a washing up liquid that works well and has a nice smell then you definitely should give this a try. Being a Fairy product, I was fairly confident that it would work well and I wasn't shocked when it did actually work well. It is easy to use and with the bottle being a really good size it will last you a while unless you are using it a lot if you have a big family and a big pile of dishes to clean but on average a good few months I would estimate.
INGREDIENTS: 15-30% Anionic Surfactants
This comes in a couple of different sizes and if you are buying from Asda then the smallest bottle will cost you £1 and that is the 450ml. The next size up is 740ml and it is £1.53 or on offer 2 for £2.50. It isn't really a bad price for the quality of it and the fact it does last.
The official Fairy website is http://www.fairy-dish.co.uk/
In the past I would always buy own brand washing up liquids, believing them to provide just as good value as the leading brands. I then tried Fairy and realised that actually although it cost more per bottle it lasted twice as long, actually making it more economical than the lower priced brands.
Fairy is actually 50 this year and so you know with that much experience it is a trusted household brand. I used to always buy the Original Fairy liquid, but the range of scents is quite wide now and the last couple of times I've gone to buy this, the fragranced versions have been on special offer. That's the reason that I bought this apple variety, as I always like to save a few pennies where I can, and I generally like the scent of apples, so this looked the best option for me from the scents available.
The washing up liquid comes in the standard Fairy bottle with red flip top cap, the only real difference being the colour of the liquid inside and the picture of apples on the front. I like that the bottle is clear as seeing it there is a constant reminder of when I'm about to run out - much better than the white bottles it used to come in.
The liquid is a brighter, lighter green than the original and as soon as you squirt it into the washing up bowl you can smell the green apple scent. Of all the scented Fairy liquids I've tried I do think this one has the strongest smell. It's quite a fresh apple smell - a lot like Granny Smiths and I often catch whiffs of it whilst I'm doing the washing up. I suppose anything to make the whole washing up experience a touch nicer is appreciated!
One of the best things about the product, and indeed the reason I buy it is the longevity. The liquid is quite thick and only a small drop or two is needed per use. It creates a good amount of bubbles despite the small amount used.
I find the cleaning power of this to be excellent. In particular I find that it gives my glass and cutlery a shine that I wouldn't get from cheaper brands. With tougher dried on stains I normally leave things to soak for a minute or two, but that's all that's really needed, and it also seems to cut through grease very effectively.
I have dry skin and I get eczema on my hands so nine times out of ten I wear rubber gloves to wash up, however on the odd occasion I haven't bothered, I haven't found that my skin has become any drier or more comfortable as a result of using this product.
A 450ml bottle of this will cost about 98p or a 650ml bottle around the £1.50 mark depending on where you shop. The prices I've just quoted are for Tesco. I've found that Fairy is often on special offer so it is worth waiting until you see the offers then stocking up.
Overall this is yet another lovely fragrance from Fairy. It cleans as well as the original but has the added bonus of a lovely apple scent so you can imagine you're in an orchard when you're washing up!!
Fairy definately make the best washing up liquid and this one is lovely.
I paid £1 for it which is good value for money as Fairy really does last a lot longer than other brands. I have bought cheaper brands in the past and have found them to be a waste of money and always go back to Fairy.
This is apple washing up liquid and one of the things that I like most about it is the smell as it really does smell of apples and is sweet and clean but not at all sickly. It is a pleasure to use because of the lovely smell. This washing up liquid is great because you only have to use a tiny amount and it creates loads of bubbles to make cleaning dishes easier. It cuts through grease and even dried on food very easily so it makes the chore of washing up so much quicker and simpler. It also feels very kind to my hands and I never use gloves but Fairy leaves my hands feeling soft and smooth and it never dries them out like some washing up liquids do.
I would definately recommend this as it is such a nice smell and such a good product that really works. Buying a cheaper brand is false economy as you have to use twice as much and the result is nowhere near as good as Fairy.
I picked this certain fairy liquid as I fabcied a change from the usual pink petals.
As with the newer bottles it is nicely shaped, sort of like an oval. It's easy to hold and pour one handed which is great for multitasking! The red cap flips open simply to release the contents.
It's normally around £1.50+ at the moment in Asda they are selling 2 for £2.50 but if you can get it on offer for £1 or as recently 2 for £1 then it works out the same price as the better supermarket brands and just a little more than the own range.
I find Fairy much better to use because you literally only need a dot of it to bubble up loads and therefore it lasts much longer. I've been buying a new bottle every few weeks after using it 3+ times a day so pretty good.
The smell is lovely pretty strong for a washing up liquid and makes the menial washing up seem so much better a task to complete.
After the dishes are completed I find my hands are soft so another plus for fairy. Definately worth the money!
There are many cases in which buying a supermarket own brand is more value for money. With washing up liquid, this is not true. You can pick up a 450ml bottle of Fairy liquid for less than £1, which is not much more expensive than the supermarket own brands. But the bottle lasts much, MUCH longer because you need less liquid for each washing up bowl.
Fairy liquid froths up easily in hot water and cleans through grease quite easily without too much scrubbing (although some more dried on grease will require soaking first). Even if you leave dishes to dry with some foam left on them, it doesn't leave a residue on your clean plates! It leaves your hands feeling soft, unlike some other brands which can dry out your hands. It is even kind to my sensitive, eczema prone skin. Fairy liquid is available in many different scents, but apple is my favourite scent; subtle and natural, very pleasant!
The bottle shape is well designed making it easy to squeeze the right amount of liquid out. My only criticism would be that it is hard to stand upside down on its lid to get the last few drops out. The bottle is also an aesthetically pleasing addition to your kitchen!
Widely available in supermarkets. Would heartily recommend!
