“ Brand: Morning / Type: Washing Up Liquid / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
I'm not a stickler for buying the same brand of washing up liquid when I run out, so when on a recent shopping trip I noticed that I could get a 675 ml of Morning Fresh, Lemon Fresh for 99p I grabbed a bottle.
It has a pleasant lemon fragrance which lasts through out the wash and a small amount produces a good lather. The packaging says that it contains something called 'sparklex' which adds superior grease cutting performance. I don't know what that is but it seems to work well in removing grease.
The clear plastic bottle allows you to see when you're nearing the end of the bottle, making it easy for you to go out and a new bottle before you run out entirely. The flip top cap is sturdy and you can even stand the bottle upside down on it so that you can get every last drop from the bottle.
Like all washing up liquids if you have broken or sensitive skin then avoid prolonged contact with this product. Also keep out of reach of small children and animals.
In summary I'd certainly recommend this as being better than most washing up liquids. It's made by Cussons so you know that it's a quality product and I'd definitely use it again.
I have flipped between this particular brand of washing up liquid and Fairy over the years. But more so recently have been using Fairy. The main reasons was due to where I was shopping, and the fact that the very large bottles of Fairy were at a good price and it was convenient for me to buy it in that store at the time. On my latest mini shopping trip, the store in question didnt have any offers on with Fairy, so I went into Home Bargains were they had only this brand and Persil on offer, so I opted for this as Ive used it before. It cost me 74p for 675ml.
What is this?
Morning Fresh is a washing up liquid that contains 4 active ingredients that helps to remove grease and food effectively. One of the cleaning agents in Morning Fresh breaks up grease so small that it stays suspended in the water rather than on your plates.The citrus extract not only provides a clean, fresh and uplifting fragrance, but also aids in the cleaning action itself.
Morning Fresh comes in three different fragrances: Citrus, Original Fresh and Meadow Fresh ( not one I have seen as readily available as the others ).
How is it packaged?
It comes in a clear plastic bottle with a capped lid for ease of use to pour or squeeze product out.The label on the front is simple and reflects the fragrance ( picture of a lemon ) with the product name ' Morning Fresh ' on it.
On the back it mentions what to do after use with product, ingredients and the companys contact details.
The product itself is bright yellow, and the bottle quite chunky but easy to hold.
How to use?
Like any washing up liquid product, add to warm running water and get cracking with the washing up! It does mention to wash hands thoroughly after use, and if you have sensitivity in the skin, dont use product for long periods of time.
5-15% anionic surfactants, Less than 5% amphoteric surfactants, Less than 5% non ionic surfactants, Benzoic Acid, Perfume, Limonene, Citral.
So what do I think of this product?
The first thing that hits you is this amazing sharp, clean burst of citrus, thats before it even goes into the water. And that smell is there for awhile, which I love.It bubbles up beautifully and you dont need to use too much.Its just the right thickness and most importantly cleans the dishes very well. No major scrubbing required.
I will be buying this one more often, but will buy from a discount store as they price this better than supermarkets most of the time.
Whilst stocking up on a few household products in Poundland a few months ago I spotted 450 ml bottles of Cussons Morning Fresh Wash Up Liquid at two for a pound. Although my preferred choice is normally Fairy's Aloe Vera and Cucumber due to its stunning aroma in addition to the softness that it offers to my skin, I felt the offer was too good to miss, so I purchased two bottles of the Lemon Fresh.
As far as wash up liquids go, the packaging is identical with its transparent plastic bottle with a flip top lid, which is comfortable to hold. Whilst I am happy to try out value branded products I will not compromise on quality with wash up liquids, particularly as I found that I needed to use twice as much with the cheaper brands. The liquid offers a good consistency in addition to a fresh and zesty lemon aroma, which is evident when I take a sniff of the bottle. Unfortunately, the scent vanishes as soon as the liquid makes contact with water, which I found a little disappointing, but my main interest was whether the product would effectively tackle grease, particularly with the Sunday roast dishes and pans.
My first use involved me using too much of the product, as the liquid seemed to dispense a little too freely from the bottle, which resulted in far too many soap suds. Consequently, I started again and dispensed a small squirt of the liquid, which offered a good amount of fluffy white soap suds, which was more than sufficient to wash the dishes. The liquid was effective at cutting through grease and grime on the plates although I found that I had to soak the roast potato tray for an hour or so, as a layer of oil remained and simply would not budge despite me scrubbing rather vigorously. It is claimed that the liquid contains Sparklex, which apparently gives superior grease cutting performance, but sadly, I cannot agree with this claim. I don't generally tend to experience this problem with Fairy, as it is far superior at lifting grease away with minimal effort.
On a positive note, there was no greasy film remaining on the dishes and pans with any bubbles being effortlessly rinsed away. I am unfortunate to suffer with problem skin on my hands, which is very dry and as a result, will often split and bleed. However, I am able to manage the condition by regularly applying hand creams. I'm not one for wearing rubber gloves when carrying out the housework as I prefer to use by bare hands, particularly as Fairy does not exacerbate my problem. However, within only minutes of using Morning Fresh for the first time, I experienced a little dryness and itching on the knuckles of one hand, which resulted in me having to apply hand cream directly after washing the dishes.
Whilst Morning Fresh was effective at cleaning day to day dishes, as discussed above, I did not find it acceptable for cutting through thick grease on the Sunday dishes. In addition to the fact that the lemon aroma vanishes as soon as the liquid is added to water, I feel a four star rating is appropriate and I will not be making a further purchase.
Morning Fresh is available in 450 ml bottles and generally tends to retail at 79p per bottle in supermarkets, but as stated, I purchased two bottles for £1 in Poundland.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
The other week I was in my local Poundland store and I very badly needed some washing liquid to take home with me so I was really pleased when I spotted Morning Fresh on offer with any 2 bottles costing only a pound which meant exceptional value in my opinion and I picked up this lemon fragranced one and the original fresh option to try out.
The bottle is nice and plain enough. The size I am looking at right now is a big 450ml size and comes in a squeezy see-through bottle with a white frosted flip-top lid to the top of it concealeing a small protruding hole. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is Cussons Morning Fresh With SparkleX and that it is Lemon Fresh and there is a small picture shown of a lemon on there. On the back of the bottle we are told a little bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients and size are stated and contact details are given for PZ Cussons are stated as well. Easy to use bottle, attractive and informative enough, this is.
Well using it of course is as simple as you would expect any washing up liquid to be. You simply squirt some in a sink or bowl and add water and get washing up of course lol. This gives off a lovely, fresh and gentle fragrance of rather natural lemons which really isnt overpowering or anything and it gives off a little white foam, not as much as I expected considering I'm rather heavy handed with using products such as these though.
However this is gentle on hands, scents my kitchen lightly when in use (and for a short while afterwards) and this is simply a really good washing up liquid. It cuts through grease and grime really easily which is good for me as my mate loves to make herself a fry up and the likes round at my place and I constantly seem to have rather greasy washing up which she leaves and I end up cleaning. It does a great job and easy one cleaning up frying pans and the utensils and the likes. Same gies for more every day washing up and glasses..... in fact it leaves glassware really sparkling along with my knives, forks etc.
On the more dirty washing up i.e casserole dishes I still find this effective though I do find that like with a lot of other washing up liquids I do need to leave things to soak with some washing liquid and hot water for a short while and once again this doesn't dissapoint.
I can't say that this is the best washing up liquid I have ever used...I am a big fan of Persil usually which I find more effective for my needs but for the price I can get it at for the minute I shall make the saving and continue with it as usually its more like a pound a botlle (in all good supermarkets etc).

Morning Fresh Washing Up Liquid - Zesty Lemon.
I may be loyal to my washing powder brand but I am not to my washing up liquid although I do tend to steer away from the very cheap 'smart price' 'value' brands as they are useless!
I like a washing up liquid to be quite bubbley when added to the hot water and Morning Fresh doesn't disappoint.
Like most other washing up liquids this comes in a slightly curvy rounded shape clear plastic bottle. On the top is a clear lid which has a cap amd under that a little pouring spout.
The front has a clear plastic sticker bearing the Morning Fresh logo and telling us it is made by Cussons allowing us to see clearly through the bottle at the liquid inside. The back has another smaller sticker labeling some ingredients, how to use info and contact addresses should you wish to get in touch, oh and the barcode!
As I am reviewing the Zesty Lemon Morning Fresh the colour of the liquid is a nice sunshine yellow, the liquid is transparent and not cloudy at all.
My thoughts ~
Unlike really cheapy washing up liquids, Morning Fresh washing up liquid has a nice gloopy texture which pours out nice and evenly. A gentle squeeze will allow the right amount to seep out of the spout.
After pouring this into the running ho water the lemony scent becomes really apparent and the area around my sink, it produces lots of bubbles which I always see as a good thing.
I place my dirty dishes into the sink and let them soak for a few moments then give them a good scrub with a sponge scourer. I find that all food stains/sauce etc. easily comes off and my dishes are left nice and sparkly clean. For more baked on stains I let the dishes soak for a while longer before giving them a scrub.
Glasses alwasys have a nice sparkle after washing too. You don't need to use much so a bottle does last quite well. I do the dishes atleast four times a day and soak my little ones bottles every evening so a bottle lasts me on average about a week.
I always buy it in Poundland so it costs me £1 but it is also available in supermarkets and other stores.
Thanks for reading :o) x
Cheap washing up liquids in supermarkets are quite good value for money. I bought this one because I was finding money a little tight after Christmas and thought I would buy it to see how I found it washed my dishes.
It comes housed in a clear plastic bottle with a flip lid. The liquid is a yellow colour and fresh looking. It has a nice Lemon smell to it and a smell that is quite a strong one for the price. It does have a fresh smell too as indicated in the name of it. It is easy to squeeze the bottle and squirt the liquid into the water. It is quite a thick liquid too. I thought it would be a little runny but I was wrong with this one.
It lathers really well and creates a lot of bubbles in the water, I thought it would soon fizzle after around 5 minutes or so but it doesn't. the bubbles stay for the length of time I need to wash my dishes. It does not stay as long as a branded liquid but that is understandable for the price.
I paid just 79p for a 450ml bottle, a good price for this amount. It was on offer at the time and I think the usual price was around 90p. Liquids are often on offer and so it is wise to look out for them while on offer to save money. I think this one is worth the usual price though, but even better for the cheaper one.
It cleans the dishes well, it removes grease and dissolves it. I find my glasses sparkle and it cleans my pans and removes any burned on food from the bottom of them. Only a small amount is need to clean the dishes and I often just pour a little amount into pans to just soak them for a while to give a little longer to remove the food etc from the bottom of the pans. It cleans cutlery well too and because it is a soft, smooth texture it does not scratch the cutlery or glasses.
I soak dish cloths in liquids and this one cleans them really well indeed to leave them nice and clean and smelling nice and fresh and ready to use again.
It is easy to also rinse from dishes to leave them nice and clean. This one is a good one if you are a little short of money or use a lot of liquid. This one is excellent value for money and good quality for this price. I recommend this one for anyone looking around for a cheaper liquid but one that cleans well too. I would definitely buy this one again.
I rate this liquid 5 stars.
I'm not against cheaper brands with anything particular in this day and age of trying to save money but when it comes to washing up liquids I do admit to nearly always buying Fairy. I believe it's very good value for money and know that a little really does go a long way so when my mum recently gave me a bottle of 'Morning Fresh' to try I was adamant it wouldn't live up to Fairy's standards..
As mentioned my mum gave me this to try as she had purchased a bottle herself at Morrisons several weeks before and had been impressed, so when they had a 'buy one get one free' offer on she had taken advantage of this offer and very nicely gave me the 'free' one.
The washing up liquid in question comes housed in a reasonably sized (450ml) plastic bottle and is the 'Lemon' variety though I have since noticed in the shops there is also a 'Meadow Fresh' fragrance in a lavender looking colour. The bottle has a standard generic appearance and the packaging is transparent so the contents can be clearly viewed.
To access the washing up liquid there is a flip top lid which is placed directly on top and is easy to both open and close without too much effort needed.
The liquid itself looks to be very thick when viewed whilst still in the bottle so this did appeal to me (as much as a washing up liquid can of course) as I really don't like thin watery looking products as it normally indicates it isn't going to be much use.
On squeezing the bright yellow liquid out into the flow of the hot water emitting from my tap I noticed it really did have a thick consistency and only one small pea sized drop seemed enough to supply my bowl with an impressive amount of lemon scented bubbles - so far so good.
This is actually a very impressive washing up liquid as mentioned above I don't normally stray away from the Fairy brand very often as I end up usually disappointed.
The consistency is very thick and has the usual 'greasy' texture that all liquids seem to have but this isn't reflected in it's performance at all. I found that a pea sized blob seemed to be ample for 'regular' washing up as it cleaned sufficiently without too much scrubbing involved though for more burnt on grease I did double the quantity used and it seemed to melt through leaving very little scrubbing involved - always a good thing as I somehow seemed to be the designated washer upper in our household.
The bubbles didn't disperse either which again is a very good sign that this is a good quality product and I literally had to rinse them away from the bowl when I had finished.
I found the lemon scent to be very strong though it didn't cling onto my kitchenware and neither did any residue, once the cleaning of my plates etc had been done I simply rinsed them and they were spotless.
I would happily recommend this product as for the relatively low price of just 79p (depending on where you shop) it has lasted me for weeks and has done a fantastic job. My hands have not suffered either as it doesn't seem to be too harsh, but then again it is made by Cussons who are a very reputable company in the world of beauty products so I wasn't surprised really.
For a cheaper alternative to Fairy I would highly recommend this and will certainly be buying this again in the future as it's cheap, effective and economical - it gets my vote!

I must admit I am generally a Fairy Liquid girl- it works and I trust it and that's why I buy it. However, I am also a sucker for an offer, and Morning Fresh Lemon washing-up liquid was on two for one at my local Tesco so I took a risk!
The liquid cost me 82p for a single bottle, with another free. The bottles are 450ml and transparent- good so I can see how much I have left! The bottle claims it has 'Sparklex' (I admit, I don't know what this is, but it sounds good!) for creating sparkling clean dishes.
I used this liquid the day after my Fairy had finished, expecting something good. It worked well for the cleaner dishes- glasses, cutley etc- leaving them clean and grease-free. I tend to soak my dirtier dishes in the water for a while and the washing up liquid worked well for this too. The liquid made my kitchen smell lovely and lemon-fresh.
I have sensitive skin and wear gloves when I'm washing up so can't comment personally on the effects on the skin of someone with sensitivity issues. However, my fiance doesn't wear gloves and he had no issues with using this liquid.
My only issue is that the smeel seemed to cling to my dishes, even after drying and storing before using them again. It made my food smell and taste a little 'off' and I wasn't impressed with this. I don't use the liquid excessively or inappropriately so I don't think I did anything wrong. Due to this, I didn't use the rest of the liquid and skipped back to the old faithful Fairy!
Morning Fresh washing up liquid was on offer on my last shopping trip and as I have never tried this certain lemon one before I decided to give it a go as it was cheaper than my usual brand. I have to say I might just have to stick to this on in future as I was very pleased with the results I got from it.
The liquid comes in a clear plastic bottle which allows you to see the yellow liquid inside, this is great as it means you can see exactly how much you have left. The front of the bottle has the Morning Fresh and Cussons logo and a small picture of half a lemon. The back of the bottle has a small white rectangle which contains all the information about this product.
The top of the bottle is a plastic flip cap which is very easy to use and keep clean.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
Using this washing up liquid is very simple and to do this a small amount should be squeezed under the running water which is going into your washing up bowl. When I did this I saw that the lather was starting to form instantly. There was a lot of lather the first time I used this as I had put rather a large amount into the water but on subsequent uses I reduced the amount and still got enough later to wash up with.
The liquid is fragranced and it smells of lemon. It is not over powering and can only really be smelled if you put your head close to the bowl of water or have a good sniff of the bottle. I was pleased that it was not over scented as I did not want my plates to have this smell left on them as it would not be pleasant when eating off them.
The lather remained in the bowl for a long time and this allowed me to wash up the first few bits and then leave the bowl whilst tea was eaten and then come back to a still lathered and hot bowl of water. The plated and cutlery was very easy to clean and not much effort was needed when trying to get of dried on marks. One bonus from this is I cooked hot and spicy chicken over the weekend and the oven dish was rather bad afterwards but when soaked in this liquid and hot water for just 30 minutes it all wiped off easily and left the over dish sparkling.
Once I have left my plates and cutlery to dry I noticed that there was no soapy marks on anything unlike what I have had from other brands of washing up liquid. My glasses were all clean and shiny and streak free. I was not able to smell the lemon scent on any of the dried items which was a good bonus for me.
The washing up liquid comes in a 450ml size and this lasts me about 1 ½ weeks and that it when using t 3-4 times a day. The bottle is a nice shape and easy to hold and use when hands are wet.
The ingredients for the liquid for those wishing to know are:-
5-15% anionic surfactants
Less than 5% amphoteric surfactants
Less than 5% non-ionic surfactants, Benzoic Acid, Perfume, Limonene, Citral
There are a few warning on the back of the bottle and these include the standard one such as washing hands after use, avoiding contact with eyes, keep away from children and not to be used on fabrics.
The bottle is 100% recyclable.
~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~
As a previously said this was on offer when I bought it and I paid just 60p which I felt was a bargain, even at full price this is only around the 80p mark which is so much cheaper than other big brands. I purchased mine from Tesco but this is available is all good supermarkets at around the same price.
I do highly recommend this washing up liquid and I am giving it the full 5/5 stars. It cleans dishes well, means less scrubbing at dried in foods and the smell is pleasant. I think this is cheap enough for everyone to give it a go and see if they get the same great results as me.
