~Fairy Tangerine and Ginger Flower~
This is one of many washing up liquids offered by Fairy. Tangerine and Ginger Flower is part of the Fairy Aromatics range which includes two other scents - Pomegranate and Honeysuckle and Green Apple and Lime Blossom. Fairy promise a 'fantastic fresh scent' as well as helping to leave your dishes clean.
This washing up liquid is presented in a tall, curvy bottle which is made from clear plastic. The familiar Fairy baby is illustrated on the front of the bottle alongside some oranges and flowers.
~Price and Availability~
Fairy Tangerine and Ginger Flower is mainly available in a 433ml sized bottle from supermarkets. It is priced around £1.25. A larger 630ml bottle is also available from Wilkinsons priced at £1.80.
When it comes to buying washing up liquid, I always opt for Fairy as I find their products to be the best on the market (in my opinion). I get bored easily with the same scent and over the last few years I have branched out from the original Fairy and the lemon variety. The range of scents on offer is really good and I have tried several of them now. I have just finished a bottle of 'Tangarine and Ginger Flower'. I always buy washing up liquid when it is on special offer and I believe I paid £1.50 for my 630ml bottle which I consider a brilliant price.
The bottle is a simple yet practical affair and features a nice flip top lid for easy dispensing. The liquid itself is a natural orange colour and transparent. It looks nice in my kitchen but I am more concerned about how a product perfoms when faced with its intended job. Our household consists of a family of three. I do a lot of cooking from scratch which usually results in a large pile of dishes and utensils which need washed.
I use the Fairy liquid in two ways. I usually soak my pans and ovenware in the sink with a mixture of this washing up liquid and hot water. I try to do this after I have dished up meals and by the time I come to do the dishes after my meal, any food is removed from my dishes and is easy to wipe away. I wouldn't say that my other dishes require a soak but if I am being lazy or have been eating tomato based foods, I do like to fill up the basin and soak the dishes for a short while. This means I only need to give them a light wipe over and rinse before drying them. I also find it just as easy to dispense a small blob onto a dish brush or scourer bad and wash plates and cutlery this way.
This particular Fairy works a treat. I don't feel the need to use a lot of liquid each time. A few small drops poured under running water or directly onto pots and pans is sufficient to offer a decent amount of bubbles. The scent of this liquid is really nice. The fact that it had ginger in it appealed to me. The tangerine is the predominant smell but combined with the ginger flower a fragrant, warm orange smell is released. It is quite festive smelling to be fair and I enjoyed using it through Christmas. The bubbles last well too and feel very soft to the touch. What I love about Fairy is that whilst it is tough on grease and food stains, it is very kind and gentle to my sensitive skin. My hands always feel soft after washing the dishes which is a benefit for me. Cheaper liquids often result in my hands becoming dry and red.
In terms of performance, this washing up liquid works brilliantly. I find that food marks and grease are removed with very little effort on my part and any bubbles are rinsed away. My dishes are left sparkling clean and fresh. It works a treat on burnt on stains as well as it suitable for use on crockery, glasswear, cutlery and even baking trays and sillicone moulds. My kitchen is left smelling lovely too!
This washing up liquid performs equally as well as the original Fairy and is of a high quality. I love the scent that it offers. I find that having a good quality washing up liquid helps me get the dreaded task of washing the dishes over and done with much quicker as I don't need to scrub and scrub at plates or dishes. My 630ml bottle lasted a good few months with regular use. I have moved on to buy the Pomegranate and Honeysuckle version as Tesco didn't stock this particular scent but I will buy it again and can highly recommend it.
Thanks for reading :)
