When it comes to cleaning the loo in our house i normally use Harpic Powerplus once a week when i do a the weekly bathroom main clean. Even though where we live we thankfully don't get affected greatly by limescale, i like to use it for the weekly clean to ensure that any limescale is shifted. Bleach unfortunately will not shift any limescale, it'll just hide it by whitening it. Anyway, even though the Harpic claims to kill germs too, being a Nurse and a Mother of a young girl who takes herself to the loo now, i do want to know that i'm killing all the germs down the loo so i always have a bottle of bleach which i use in between the weekly clean probably every other day or so. Its something reassuring about the chlorine smell i guess, probably because i associate it with the cleaniness of where i work. Anyway i'm not particularly loyal to any given brand and will use shop own brands because at the end of the day all bleaches do the same thing by their very nature - killing germs. If i see something like Domestos or Parozone on offer though i will plump for one of those. Yesterday when in Tesco they had Parozone bleach on offer for 50p a bottle, so grabbed two bottles.
Parozone comes in a variety of 'fragrances' in different coloured bottle, though to be honest all of the bleaches i have ever tried all smell of chlorine, which i'm quite happy with because of the hygenic smell. I currently have a yellow (citrus) and this blue (original) bottles. As i mentioned i've picked these on offer for 50p a bottle, but normally they range from about 90p to £1. For this you get a 750ml size plastic bottle with the standard bleach bottle curved neck for reached under the rim of the loo. On the front of the bottle it claims to kill 100% of toilet germs, and on the back of the bottle has a list of instructions for use. Although i just use bleach down the loo, it can also be used to clean floors, kitchen surfaces, drains, baths, and sinks, but i tend to use other cleaning products for those areas. The bottle also has a red child safety cap which is reassuring even though i keep my in a cupboard high above the reach of my Daugher.
Using this bleach is just as simple as using any other type of loo cleaner or bleach, just squirt the bottle under the rim and around the bowl. This bleach is quite thick, which is good because it means it stays in contact with the surfaces longer, but it also means that it can be difficult to cover the whole loo bowl. I've got into the habit of taking my time squirting it around so enough is applied to cover the whole toilet. The liquid is clear like any other bleach but it does seem to have a hint of yellowy to it so you can roughly see where it has been applied. The instructions suggest to leave the bleach to work overnight, but i tend to leave it for about half an hour before flushing. Anyway during my healthcare courses for Nursing we were told that bleach will pretty much kill all germs on impact, and the tough ones that try to fight it will be killed off after around 10 minutes. When you flush the bleach away the loo is left all sparkling and clean, and the water is left with a foamy layer. The bleach smell although strong tends to dissappear after about an hour when i open the window i find.
Overall i would recommend this bleach for cleaning the loo. It kills all the germs, which is pretty much the whole point of toilet cleaning really, and it leaves the loo looking clean and smelling fresh. Obviously if you live in a limescale affected area, you may be better of getting something Harpic but otherwise this is a good product.
We often buy Parazone bleach when it is on a special offer, otherwise we use an alternative as this one is good, though a bit on the expensive side. The one we have at the moment, we got for £1 from Morrisons and it contains 750ml of excellent bleach. We have a thing about cleaning the toilets in our house and we love to try a lot of different sorts of bleaches to see which is the most effective.
We put this down the toile pan at night before we go to bed and leave it overnight to do its work and then flush the following morning when we wake up. I have tried the blue one but the one we have at the moment is Citrus Fresh and is in the yellow plastic bottle. It also has a child safety cap on the top, which is an excellent idea if you have kids.
The only thing I would moan about with this bleach is that the Citrus one isn't very pungent. I like a bleach to actually smell like a bleach but this one is surprisingly mild on the fragrance front. There is little lemon scent to this and I noticed this straight away. On the plus side, however, it is thick and you can really see the yellow liquid grabbing hold of the sides of the toilet when you put it in the pan. Once you have flushed, it bubbles and the inside of the pan looks sparkling clean and white again.
My dear other half always asks me for my advice and opinion before buying our household bleach and always say to her that if this is on offer that she should buy this. Otherwise, we will buy the shop's own brand or Domestos. I do give my dear wife additional housekeeping money to spend on quality products as I like her to keep a nice clean home and usually she does a good job and she buys the products I approve of.
This bleach is long lasting and a bottle will last us almost fortnight even though we use it very often. Only a small amount is required for brilliant effective results and I can recommend this.
This review is about the lavender version. Let's not avoid the truth, the main reason most of us buy bleach is to blast skid marks off the toilet porcelain. They must go through gallons of the stuff in Germany - their toilets have a little "inspection shelf" that the Germanic poo splodges down onto so that ze Germans can look at their own doings. It's something to do with their national paranoia about being able to spot blood clots in zeir ploppzy due to the high amount of processed meat they eat in wursts and salamis. Our Anglo loos have steep sides which unfortunately, if your aim is out, can also lead to splodgy poo marks in the pan. I saw Parazone bleach available at 2 bottles for £1 in Tescos so I thought I'd blast those skiddies away.
The bleach has a yellow tinge which if left in the toilet water and not flushed away can make it look like someone has done a wee in your now skid mark free toilet. Yellow liquid in a toilet that I'm swearing blind to my wife I have cleaned - that's one star taken off straight away. Also, as much as it's healthy to do so, I've sniffed and sniffed the bleach loads and am yet to detect any hint of lavender. It just smells like a swimming pool changing room to me. I think that the closest this bleach has come to lavender is the colour of the bottle it sits in. The ingredients do list perfume as a content - but it's about as sweet smelling as a tramp's socks with outside a Stilton factory. There's another star flushed away.
The bleach is made by Jeyes and is by royal appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, so if nothing else, we now know that Her Royal Highness has skiddies welded onto her very royal Royal Doulton too. To be fair, I have found it effective at loosening the brown stuff, but then again most chlorine based bleaches are.
The label claims that the bleach will kill swine flu, although I can't condone feeding bleach to pigs as it's just cruel. And it must make the bacon taste awful. Also on the label is the usual long list of do's and dont's - do we really live in a world where people have to be told not to drink bleach? Saying that though, my wife's Nanna has been soaking her false teeth in bleach for years and has a smile like a thousand watt light bulb. Sorry Edna!
Overall, it does work, is reasonably priced but I have issues with the colour and smell. It gets a very average 3 stars from me.
I use Parazone Bleach regularly because I have found it to be one of the best and most reasonable bleaches on offer. I am not 100% loyal to it and i will use others from time to time, but generally this is the one I will pick up and have done for the past few years. A bottle containing 750 ml of the bleach costs just £1.00 from Tesco which is a very reasonable price. It also comes in a variety of fragrances, but the one that I've chosen most recently was the Citrus one.
The bleach comes in a standard bottle that is really similar to all of the bottles that bleach tend to come in. The bottle does have a child proof cap, but it's easy enough for me to remove. It has a slightly angled nozzle head so that you can get the bleach to squirt right under the toilet ring of the bowl and then it runs down the toilet bowl from here. The bleach is thick and so it sticks to the toilet bowl well until you want to flush it away. I tend to squirt it and leave it for a good hour before flushing.
The bleach claims to kill 100% of all germs dead - and while I can't substantiate these claims, I can say that my toilets and sinks do seem to be very clean after I have used the bleach and don't have any unpleasant smells or stains. The aroma of the bleach itself is not unpleasant and is indeed quite citrusy although it doesn't completely cover up the smell of the bleach entirely.
Overall, I will probably continue to use this bleach because it's a good price and it seems to work well.
Bleach. I guess its a bit like marmite in a way. Not that you eat it obviously, but that you either love to use it to clean or hate it. Personally i love a bit of bleach when i'm cleaning. You get that reassurance that whatever you clean with it, that any disgusting germs and bacteria will be zapped! I normally prefer to use domestos because i like how its really thick and long lasting, especially when compared to some cheaper supermarket value brands i have tried, which just seem to slide off the loo and into the water. Saying that i do also sometimes buy parozone when i spot it offer, like i did the other day. 2 bottles for £1 in the supermarket, compared to £1.10 of my usual domestos.
I picked up a pink bottle and green bottle. There are a few other colour versions i saw, i think blue, purple and yellow if my memory serves me right. The colour is supposed to indicate a different fragrance, but like all the bleaches i have tried, they all just smell of chlorine to be honest. The bottle hold 750ml of bleach and the bottle is made of plastic with the usual curved top to reach under the toilet rim. The bottle like most bottles has a child proof lid. The label tells me that it kills 100% of toilet germs and helps prevent limescale. On the back of the bottle is a list of precautions and instructions.
You can use this bleach to clean toilets, floors, sinks, baths, drains, and other work surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom. Personally i only use bleach in my toilets. I'm not particularly a clean freak but the toilet is one place i like to be clean. It probably begun when i was in nesting mode when pregnant and ever since i just like to think that my girl won't pick up any germs when using the toilet. When i use it i give it a good squirt around the bowl making sure that the whole bowl is covered in the bleach. The bleach has a slight yellowness to it so you can see where it is. The bleach is thick and clings ti the underside of the rim, but is probably not as thick as domestos. The instructions tell you to leave it to work overnight but i recently watched that wonderstuff programme on tele which proved that the bleach kills any germs almost intantly anyway. Therefore i just leave it for 5 minutes or so and then flush. The loo is then left with lots of bubbles in the water, and the bowl looking sparkling and germ free.
Overall, i would definitely recommend this bleach for your toilet. It does the job of killing germs simply and is easy to use. I would probably still buy domestos if parozone wasn't on offer but i'm still happy to use this product instead.
Please note I am reviewing the Citrus Parozone, but Dooyoo instructed I put the review here.
I love the smell of bleach, it doesn't matter which bleach it is I just love that totally 100% clean smell you get from bleach. Parozone produced by Jeyes, is amongst the types of bleach I regularly buy.
I particularly like this citrus smelling parozone bleach, as for me it just adds that little something extra. I can easily spot the bright yellow plastic bottle on the supermarket shelves so I'm not hanging around the household cleaning isles for long. The bottle is topped off with a red plastic child safety lid. The shape of the bottle makes it easy for me to use as once the lid is removed which incidentally is opened by squeezing the two pads either side of the lid and twisting, there is a white plastic stopper with a directional thin tube attached, so when I squirt the bleach out of the bottle it goes exactly where I want it to go. In the bottle I buy I get 750 ml of parozone citrus bleach. The bleach is thick which I think is a good thing, I can't be doing with real cheap bleach that just runs away immediately like water. I like to know there is some texture to it then I feel it's doing it's job right. I replace the lid making sure it clicks into place and is closed securely. As I use rubber gloves when using this bleach, I have never experienced getting any of it on my skin so I cannot comment on skin irritations and the like from this product.
~What I use it for~
I use this bleach to clean the toilet bowl, I squirt the bleach under the rim of the toilet all the way round, I can see instantly that it is beginning to work, getting rid of all the nasty toilet germs that may be lurking there. Parozone bleach is guaranteed to kill 100% of toilet germs, this is good news as far as I'm concerned. It has also be proven to kill the flu virus including swine flu. I usually leave the bleach in the toilet while I clean everywhere else, then once I think it's had time to work, I will go back with a toilet brush and clean all around the bowl. I then flush the toilet and feel pleased that I have a shiny clean toilet that smells great.
~Other things you can use it for~
I really only use this bleach for the toilet as there are other types of bleach I like to use for other jobs, however this parozone bleach can be used for numerous things like drains and plugholes, the bleach can be used neat for them, sinks, basins, work surfaces, chopping boards baths and floors, for these areas it is advisable to dilute 60 ml of parozone to 5 litres of water. It can even be used to remove stains from fabric, I don't think I'd want to do this personally but if you were interested in doing this then you should use 20 ml per 5 litres of water, soak your item for 15 minuets then remember to rinse thoroughly. Parozone can also be used in septic tanks.
~Ingredients, cautions and warnings~
Amongst other ingredients parozone bleach contains 5% Anionic Surfactants, perfume and disinfectant. For a full list of ingredients and a look at all the other products Jeyes produce you can take a look at the Jeyes website, as they are the ones who produce the parozone products.
The precautions on the bottle state that this is not a lime scale removing product and so should not be used as one, you are advised NOT to transfer any of the bleach liquid into another container, do NOT use on silk, leather, wool and colored fabrics, synthetics or specially treated materials.
Always wipe up spillages immediately and rinse thoroughly with clean water
Keep the bottle upright in a cool dry place
Not suitable for sterilizing baby equipment
Do not use on enameled or plated articles or neat on metal surfaces
Keep away from carpets and upholstery
Do not remove the label from the bottle until you have finished with the product completely

And most importantly keep the bottle totally out of the reach of children.
The bottle clearly points out all the usual warnings and advice of what to do should anything such as an accident, happen whilst using the bleach.
I buy my parozone bleach from Wilkinson's or Tesco and it costs me around £1.50 for a 750 ml bottle which does last me quite a while.
I'm giving Parozone Bleach 5 stars, it does the job well and I love the smell of it.
Thank you for reading my review which may also be posted on other sites.
As I have mentioned in other reviews I am on a bit of an economy drive. Bleach is something we always have in our house to clean our toilets and I usually use Domestos which I really like but when I saw these new Parazone Bleach bottles on sale for two for £1.60ish as compared to one bottle of Domestos that costs £1 I decided to give them a whirl, after all bleach is bleach right?
The bottles look just like regular bottles of bleach and I use the Parazone toilet wipes which I really like so I was hoping I was going to like this bleach. On the bottle it says that this bleach kills 100% of toilet germs and is the strongest bleach you can buy on the market today. It is proven to kill the flu virus including swine flu and it also says it will remove stains and deodorise your toilet. The bleach has a citrus smell but to be honest I did not find the smell too strong, maybe it's just me but I feel that a bleach has to smell really strong and really get into your lungs to know that it is working. After adding this bleach to my toilet I never really got that strong smell like I do with Domestos and after a while you could hardly tell that I had added any bleach so this was one negative for me.
The other biggest negative was that I found the liquid very weak and not very thick. With Domestos you get a really thick liquid that really sticks to the sides of your toilets and stays int he bowl for a very long time but with this bleach I found it was quite watery and hardly clung to the sides of my toilet at all. It just seemed to fall down the side of the pan and into the water so for me I felt like it was not really cleaning any of the sides of the toilet bowl which is where you expect to find the germs. Also, this bottle has a thin cap at the top which you use to squirt the liquid around the rim of the pan but after a couple of uses this cap actually fell off my bottle and into the toilet whilst I was pouring and so I ended up just pouring a whole load of bleach directly into the water so this was quite a waste for me.
The bottle does have a child lock on it which is good as you need to squeeze the pads on the side of the cap to twist it off and then it locks into place once you put the lid back on so it is a safe bleach to have around young children.
My toilets have been clean after using this bleach but I think in future I am going to stick with Domestos!
Bleach is an essential cleaner in my household and I use it frequently to keep the bathroom and kitchen clean. I spotted this Parozone Strongest Bleach in Tesco where it costs 89p for a 750ml bottle. I thought this was good value compared to the other products available and was tempted to give it a go thanks to the marvellous claims stated on the front of the packaging.
Product description: "Kill 100% of Toilet germs with New Parozone Strongest Bleach, the strongest bleach you can buy. Proven to kill the flu virus, including swine flu."
The bleach comes in a bright yellow bottle with an angled neck and a red safety cap. I have this bleach in the Citrus variety, and it strongly smells of chemicals with a slight hint of something that could be classed as citrus fruit. It doesn't smell particularly nice but bleach is a harsh product and I always find the smell a bit unpleasant. It has a bright yellow colour which is quite helpful for seeing where you have applied it.
Directions for use:
+ Killing Toilet Germs. Squirt Parozone Strongest Bleach under the rim to kill 100% of toilet germs, remove stains and deodorise your toilet. Clean with a brush or leave to work overnight.
+ Drains & plugholes: Squirt neat to kill germs, remove stains and eliminate unpleasant smells.
+ Sinks, basins, work surfaces, chopping boards, baths, floors: Use a solution of 60ml bleach to 5 litres of water. Rinse after use.
+ Fabric stain removal: Use 20ml per 5 litres of water. Soak for 15 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
+ Suitable for use with septic tanks.
The directions for use on the back of the bottle suggest that this bleach can be used in variety of different ways. You could use it to bleach your white clothes and fabric, sinks, work surfaces, basins, and toilets. I tend to use this for both the kitchen and the bathroom as these are the areas which I feel need the most attention to hygiene. Bleach is a versatile product and this works just as well regardless of whether I'm using it to clean my kitchen sink or the toilet bowl.
The bleach is a very thick gel-like liquid although it does run out of the bottle quite freely when you squeeze it. The neck of the bottle comes in useful for aiming it, which helps when you're applying it round the inner rim of the toilet. It spreads out well but without running away straight off, and it stays in place for a while which is good if you want to remove stains or dirty marks. I usually clean my sink by rubbing this round the edges and leave it along to work its magic. When I come back the sink is then sparkly white again and it just needs to be cleaned off. I tend to use this neat around the toilet, and then diluted to give the bath and sink a good scrub. It cleans away any visible marks and works incredibly quickly to brighten up my white surfaces and get rid of any stains.
I have been really impressed by this product, it is highly concentrated and lasts for a long time as I only need to use a small amount for my cleaning. The only sticking point I have is that there isn't really any way for me to tell if it truly does kill 100% of germs and the flu virus as it claims. There was no research of statistical evidence provided in relation to these claims so you never know how accurate these sorts of statements are.
This is a great all round cleaner which I could certainly recommend. I would happily buy this again as it is a good strong bleach product that works effectively and quickly. It is a good price and is comparable even with the supermarket own brands. I'm not entirely convinced that using this particular bleach will stop you catching the flu but if it does then that's obviously a bonus!
Parozone Bleach contains amongst other ingredients: <5% Anionic Surfactants, Perfume, Disinfectant
When it comes to cleaning the toilet you have got to make sure you clean the insides as much as possible. With bleach I was always unsure which to use so I settled for Parazone.
I found it comes in a few varieties and I picked up the yellow one and it was a nice yellow bottle and you have a child safety lid the one you need to press down and screw open carefully. After you open up the bottle you have a nozzle facing you which is easy to tilt and the bleach comes out.
The bleach is thick as you would imagine and I was reading up that apparently this bleach can kill the flu virus which is kind of big news when I think about it. I have used this on many surfaces and that does involve the toilet. I poured some down the centre but also around the rim and left it overnight.
The next morning I pressed to wash the fluid down and the toilet had no marks or stains and it smelt clean and looked shiny and refreshed so I was relieved. I found it can be used in bathrooms and sinks to help unblock them.
I poured some of this into some hot water to clean some work top surfaces and I do this when I am cooking and chopping up meat as I always worry a virus or something might spread if I do not.
There are instructions and each to our own but I usually put a small amount of bleach into water and then stir it around before using on items such as the kitchen cupboards and side boards. I like the smell which is clearly bleach but you just know it is going to clean when you put it.
I have used this to clean many items and it does the job well and seems to last a long time as well. This bottle I got was 80p and it was on offer and in a size 750ml and there is health warnings on the back for people to read as well.
I think some people are not keen to use bleach as we expect it to smell out a home and I clean my tiled flooring in the kitchen and bathroom with some hot water and bleach and even though it smells you know it is clean from germs and bacteria.
I am weary about bleach but I put on gloves and make sure I read all the information they give you just incase and make sure I use this is small amounts.I think just for peace of mind this is a great product to own.
One final thing I might note is that I have used this to remove stains now from white clothing and I pour around 10-15mls into a bucket of water and it works a treat so this might be something others might wish to try as well.
i normally have a bottle of bleach in my cleaning cupboard for cleaning floors and the loo. I normally buy domestos, however recently i went to the shop and they had no domestos on the shelf so i made do with this parozone bleach. It was slightly cheaper than domestos at around 90p and the bottle i picked up was yellow for citrus fragrance. The bottle has descriptions for use and precautions, etc, and states that it kills toilet germs 100%.
I use some on the floor. I didn't really pay much attention to the instructions, i just squirted as much as i felt necessary into my mop bucket with hot water. I found that it left my floor nice and clean with no stickyness under foot and no streak like some floor cleaners i previously used have so was pleased with this. The smell didn't really smell too much of citrus to be honest, but i like the clinical bleach smell anyway.
In my loo it also worked well. The bottle has the usual curved neck to allow you to squirt it under the toilet rim where the germs really build up. I found the bleach not to be as thick as domestos but this allowed the bleach to cover the whole loo bowl. I left it to do its germ killing job whilst i cleaned the rest of the bathroom before flushing it away after 15 miuntes or so and was pleased to see it left the loo clean and shiny just as well as my usual domestos.
Overall this is a good bleach. I'll probably return to domestos next time though but this is a good cheap alternative.
When I get a few days of I always like to tackle the cleaning list and an essential for cleaning is bleach. I had purchased some recently and decided to test it out and see if it was any good as I had bought it while on offer. I am not too bothered with cleaning whether I am using high brand name products as long as the results are successful it is never a problem with me.
The bleach that I picked up is the Parozone Alpine thick bleach. It comes in a tall green bottle with a red lid and has the label wrapped around the waist with the logo clearly displayed. It is all on a green theme so it does stand out clearly in the supermarket when you are looking for it. It comes in a 1250ml bottle so it should last you quite a while.
On The back of the bottle label are all of the clear and vital health warnings, marked with a cross symbol. This is an irritant so it should be kept out of reach of children, it should also not be used with other products as it may release dangerous gases. It is irritating to eyes and skin and should be avoided with eye contact and skin. If it does come into contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. Also, if swallowed seek medical advice instantly and show the label and after contact with skin wash immediately with water.
DIRECTIONS OF USE
The nozzle should be pulled up to open and to close, push it down fully so it is level with the lid and should be stored in a cool, dry place. So, to use it in a toilet, you squirt it under the rim and leave overnight to kill germs, deodorise and remove stains. To use in drains, squirt into the drain and wastepipes to disinfect and cure unpleasant smells.
This product can be used diluted, for work surfaces and chopping boards use 60ml of bleach per litres of water then wash and rinse thoroughly. For baths, basins and sinks, use 60ml per 5 litres of water and again wash and rinse. For floors, mop with 60ml per 5 litres and lastly for cold bleaching and stain removal, use 20ml per 5 litres of water and soak for 15 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
For warnings they do state that it is not a limescale removing product and should not be used this way. They also warn to not transfer to another contain and not to use it on silk, wool or coloured fabrics and leather or synthetics.
So, I know bleach can be used for a number of different tasks but the main thing I use it for is in the bathroom to clean the toilet. When using this I usually do it regularly, I wait until the evening and then I lift up the lid and just squeeze the bottle and direct it around the toilet head. The liquid is clear and you can smell it as it is very strong and has a chemical smell but then I leave it to kill germs overnight. I then flush it and then it seems to have gotten rid of the dirt when I go back in the morning. Toilets build up so much dirt and grime that it is necessary that you have to put bleach down it every so often to kill bacteria.
When purchasing my bottle of Parozone Alpine bleach, I purchased it for £1 which isn't too bad when I know it will last me for a good few months or more. It is available to buy in all supermarkets; it just depends on whether they stock it or not as some may not. This is a perfect product for killing all germs, clean, refresh and remove stains, prevent limescale, kill salmonella, listeria and e.coli and safe for use with septic tanks.

I do my fair share of cleaning in my home, my wife works too and so we share the chores and I do not mind keeping the home clean and tidy because it is my home too and my duty to chip in when I can, the same way together.
We use this bleach on a regular basis because we know it works and it is priced quite low for only 89p usually for 750ml and it is an easy to grip plastic bottle for easy pouring from the nozzle, it also has a child resistant top, which is very handy if small children are in the household, in ours it is our grandchildren we have to take precautions with, even though we have child proof locks on our cupboards.
This bleach is very thick and it does not have such a strong smell or odour, like some other brands do, it is quite pleasant and it does not last too long after use, which is why I like it so much.
It is manufactured by Jeyes, which is a very good brand of cleaning products and very good value for money, and only a little is needed to do the chores too.
I clean the toilet with it, I just pour some around the rim of the toilet and leave it over night and in the morning I just flush it and it is nice and clean, white and fresh.
If I am going to use it on my work tops in the kitchen, I just pour a little in a bowl with some hot water and wipe it and rinse it off thoroughly to take any excess off and the smell and it kills germs to leave it in tip top condition.
Sometimes in my kitchen sink, which is stainless steel, I have some stubborn stains and the plug hole can harbour germs and so I just pour a little into the hole and around the sink and use a brush to gentle remove the stains and rinse it thoroughly once again, the stains dissolve almost instantly the bleach hit it, and little effort is used to clean it.
My wife sometimes pours some into the mop bucket to clean the floors around the home, especially when the grandchildren have been to visit, as they tend to leave food marks on the floor and the bleach cuts into the stubborn marks and brings the floor nice and clean again.
It can be used on basins, chopping boards, and baths too, but I rarely ever use it on chopping boards as I prefer not to, not because it does not kill the germs but because it is just a preference, although I have used this bleach for that purpose from time to time and it has killed the germs.
It can be used for fabric stain removal, all that is needed is to use 20ml per 5 litres of water and soak for around 15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
At the end of the day my wife always soaks the dish clothes in a solution of this bleach and leaves it over night and the cloths are nice and clean and free from germs.
It is a very good value bleach and extremely good quality for the low price and I recommend it for anyone to try, as I think it is a brilliant product and it works and it is often on special offer for a lot lower price.
I rate it 5 stars.

I cannot stand a dirty toilet. If I am going to be sitting my backside on it..I want my toilet to be clean and germ free as possible! I bought 2 of the Parozone bleaches from Tesco last month as they were on offer at 2 for £1.00 which is a good price.
I use this bleach for many things. The main one being my toilet. It is of course awkward to open but this is a good thing from the safety aspect. Mine is kept high in the cleaning cupboard so my son couldn't reach it anyway.
I pour some around the rim every night before bed. I noticed that this bleach is very thin. It is a yellow and the bleach scent is strong with just a hint of citrus lemon on pouring. I left it overnight and in the morning, I flushed the toilet. A mass of white bubbles filled the toilet and the lemon scent was a little more evident. Once the bubbles had settled, my toilet but sparkly clean, smelt pleasant and there was no noticable trace of bleach around the sides.
I have had blocked sink holes and have simply poured a little down, left for a wee while and rinse hot water down to clear any blockages. I use this for cleaning my kitchen floor and simply pour a small amount into my bucket with hot water and use my mop to clean. I also clean the close as we stay in a tower. The bleach cleans the floor well and leaves no dirt or residue. Once dried, the bleach sent is barely noticable and my floors are delicately scented.
The most recent use for my bleach was my kitchen bin. As you can imagine, a lot of rubbish including stinky nappies goes into my bin on a daily basis. Even with a black bag in, it still smells minging. I poured a small amount into the bin and filled it up with hot water. A small amount was ideal as the bubbles rose quite substantially given a faint lemon scent. I left my bin overnight and tipped the water out. The bleach had worked well and took away and scents and nasty stains. I am impressed.
As far as my feelings with bleach go, I do like this. I would prefer it to be slightly thicker and the lemon scent to be a tad stronger but this does the job nicely and at a good price.
Thanks for reading.
I have never been one to fuss with which type of bleach I buy and neither has my wife but after seeing so many adverts for Parazone and then finding it on offer at only 45p per bottle insted of the usual 88p we decided to give it a go.
Now bleach by the very nature of the beast will kill germs this we all now but some of them are thicker than others and seem to hang around for longer therefore working better I would assume.
Parazone is actually a rather thin bleach compared to some and didn't really impress in that particular department but it still seemed to do a the job we would expect of it and it had a decent mild scent that wasn't as overpowering as many.
Parazone comes in non spill bottles which mean that if you just tip them up the bleach won't come out, you actually need to squeeze them to get the liquid out, a fairly good idea I guess but I cannot in my very long lifetime remember spilling a bottle of bleach anyway, but then there's a first time for everything eh.
At the reduced price of 40p per bottle I would be sure to use this again but in all honesty I prefer the Asda own bleach and if this was full price then it would be the Asda one for me every time.
I use this bleach all the time in my house, from the toilet to the floors, and its fantastic, Its nice and thick and comes in a variety of options, I have seen it in various shops in around 5 different variants, Original, Pink, Pine, Lavender, Citrus, it also comes in different size bottles, 750ml with an angle neck which is perfect for the toilet, really helps to get right under the rim of the toilet, 1 litre and 2 litre straight neck bottles.
I always have a bottle in each toilet at the ready to give it a quick clean before bed every night and I am completely confident that it leaves my toilet germ free, the latest packaging I have seen in Tesco has a target on it stating Kills Toilet Germs 100%.
I have tried other toilet cleaners but always use bleach as well, I like the bleach smell and it makes me feel clean, however I do like to use a different toilet cleaner as well to give a fresh scent sometimes and to remove any limescale, I live in quite a hard water area.
I have seen Parozone in lots of different shops ranging in price, but I think average is around £1 a bottle, which I think is fab!
