Flash is a range of cleaning products for the home. They fall under the Procter and Gamble brand.
~Wipe and Go~
Flash offer a packet of wipes which are designed to be used to clean various surfaces around the home. Presented in a red, plastic packet with a pull up seal, there are 24 large wipes (48 if you split them down the perforated middle).
These wipes can be used on most washable surfaces around the home except fabrics, carpet and upholstery. They are not designed to be flushed down the toilet. Surfaces can be wiped over and there is no need to rinse. Any surfaces that come into contact with food should be dried after wiping over. These wipes carry a lemon scent.
Flash Wipe and Go are available from supermarkets priced at around £1.00 a packet.
I tend to use antibacterial sprays and cloths to clean around my home. A few weeks ago I went to my local corner shop to pick up some spray as I had ran out (and forgot to buy some at the supermarket). All the sprays were quite expensive but I spotted these Flash wipes at £1.00 and decided to buy these instead. They would do until I could get to the supermarket.
I trust Flash as a brand name and often use the sprays in this range. I like to keep my home clean and hygenic and wipe surfaces daily as well as giving the house a thorough clean a few times a week. These wipes are easy enough to use and are quite versatile. I do prefer sprays as I can get more use from a bottle than I can from the wipes but these are very convenient to give my home a quick freshen up.
Each wipe is quite large and they can be split easily but I personally find them to be a bit on the small side when split. The wipes are white and slightly transparent. They feel a little rough (when compared to other wipes such as baby wipes and cosmetic wipes) and are very moist. The lemon scent is pleasant and quite fresh. It doesn't make my home smell as fresh as using a spray does but it does linger for a short while and leaves the room smelling clean.
These wipes perform well and I have used them on most surfaces. They don't claim to kill a percentage of bacteria etc but they are quick option to cleaning a surface. In the kitchen, I found these ideal to run across the work tops before drying with a dish cloth. They are perfect to wipe over spills on the floor or bin and eliminate the constant need for the mop to be out - they bring my plastic bin up a treat. They bring the sink area up clean and streak free quickly and the surfaces dry quickly too.
In the bathroom, I have used these to run around the sink, bath and toilet to freshen it up. The wipes remove shower gel marks, soap marks and leave the surfaces looking shiny and clean. I do prefer bathroom specific wipes though. I have also used these wipes to give my sons table a clean over and then dried afterwards. They are simply ideal for a quick fix solution. I have scrubbed with them and found them to stay in shape and not tear which is ideal. They don't feel cheap when being used.
Not a replacement for a good spray and wipe over but they do perform well. I have sensitive skin and found that these were ok to use but my skin would be a little red afterwards so I ensured I washed them well and applied some hand cream.
These wipes are great to have in the cupboard. The seal on the packet is of a high quality and keeps the wipes moist for the next use. Each wipe slips out the packet with ease without pulling any additional wipes with it. I bought spray a few days after buying these wipes but have used the odd wipe to clean a surface when it doesn't warrant bring out the spray and cloths.
4 stars - well priced and perform well.
Thanks for reading :)
