“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Washing Up Liquid / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
I love cooking but I don't like washing up one little bit lol. I think I'm not alone on that statement though! I get through tons of washing up liquid and try to only buy top brands which do, for the most part cost a bit too much money when on a tight budget (which I am at the moment) which is why when I spotted this Tesco own brand one costing 88p a bottle I decided to give a go to see if I could save some much needed pennies!
500ml see-through plastic bottle that has a matching flip-top lid to the top of it concealing a small hole and the bottle is shaped with a slight dent to the top of it (both sides) for ease of handling and on the front I am told that it is Tesco Anti-Bacterial French Lavender Washing Up Liquid and the size is stated and there is a picture of a bunch of lavender on there. On the back of the bottle other information stated includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, warnings are given as are the ingredients, I'm told that the product is not tested on animals, the size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for Tesco are given. Nice enough, plain and simple bottle this is which is rather easy to handle (even with wet and soapy hands lol) and of course all the information given is necessary!
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle:
Anti-bacterial French lavender washing-up liquid *in independent laboratory testing for use on dishcloths and sponges. Best ever performance, cleaning ability and grease removal.
All you need to do with this is, is add a bit under a running tap and in a sink or bowl and add warm/hot water to it. You can use this in septic tanks (diluted) and/or use it neat on a damp/wet sponge if desired and directly onto where you wish to clean.
This is a transparent, lilac coloured thinnish gel with a really beautiful, fresh, naturally sweet smelling fragrance of French lavender to it. It lathers up nicely though doesn't feel too soapy when using it. It removes grease and grime with total ease just with it in the water, however for stubborn removal of ingrained dirt, grease and food I do soak things for a few minutes and/or use it neat and give a light scrub but really this is ever so effective and not too much elbow grease is ever really required from me.
Not only does this clean beautifully, it rinses off with complete ease as well. I use this on everything wash-up-able in my kitchen including my glasses and of course I do rinse them afterwards but it brings them up smear free and clean and rather gleaming!
Everything I wash up with this is sparklingly clean and vibrant looking and whats more with it being anti-bacterial I'm also given peace of mind which I do really appreciate.
This is as good as any leading brand far more costly than this and at the moment its actually my favourite washing up liquid cos not only does it do what I've stated earlier it leaves my hands feeling real soft, supple and delicately fragranced but also my kitchen is left smelling gorgeous for a good hour or so after using this. Not only am I huge fan of this my flatmate commented how brilliant it is and for her to notice anything past the end of her nose is a miracle believe me! lol.
Big thumbs up to Tesco for this I love it and I almost look forward to washing up with this.... i did say almost! lol
Only available in Tesco stores costing 88p a bottle.

As we always use Fairy Liquid in our house, I'm really not quite sure how we ended up with this. I can only assume that someone went to grab the Fairy and picked up the wrong one! Still, we've bought it so we're using it.
According to the Tesco website, this costs 98p for a 500ml bottle. If you're not keen on the lavender scent, then you can purchase a 500ml bottle of this stuff in Lime and Ginger for 10p less. I'm even more confused as to why we got this one over the 88p bottle now, but moving on...
At first I have to admit that I didn't notice a difference between the performance of this washing up liquid, and that of Fairy's. They both bubble up quickly and easily, and they produce a good amount of suds in the washing up bowl to tackle the dishes with. However I did feel that the water went 'flat' a fair bit quicker with this stuff than it does with Fairy.
I felt I needed to add more liquid, and then more water to froth it up, part way through doing the dishes. To me that doesn't make this stuff all that cost effective, as essentially I wind up using twice as much of this than I do of Fairy.
The smell is very pleasant here though, and this does have an acceptable consistency. It's noticeably thicker than that awful cheap Daisy stuff. I'm not big on noticing the effects these things have on my hands, but I can say that they didn't seem dry or rough after using this which is a positive for many.
A 450ml bottle of Fairy does cost a little more than this washing up liquid does, but then I use half the amount, making Fairy actually cheaper. Nobody has owned up to being the culprit behind this purchase, but whoever it was, I hope they don't make the same mistake again. This is an acceptable product, but it's effectively more expensive than the leading brand is. In my books this has to get the thumbs down from me for that reason alone.
I have been using Tesco Antibacterial washing up liquid for a while now. I buy both the French Lavender and Lime and Ginger varieties. My personal favourite is French Lavender, which I will be reviewing here.
Tesco Antibacterial French Lavender washing up liquid, is a good quality liquid. It is not watery, like value washing up liquids, it is the same thickness as more expensive brands i.e. Fairy. It is however far cheaper than the expensive brands, coming in at 98p for a 500ml bottle. A 450ml bottle of Fairy antibacterial will set you back £1.48, so there is a nice saving to be had.
French Lavender, makes a lovely smelling, washing up liquid. The scent is not overpowering, just gentle and fresh. It leaves all my dishes smelling clean, but not overly perfumed.
As a penny pincher, I am very pleased to say that you don't have to use too much of this washing up liquid. A couple of good squirts in warm water, gives me a good enough lather to get all my dishes squeeky clean. There are 5 people in my family, so that is quite a few dishes to get through.
This 500ml bottle costs 98p in Tesco, which is very good value in my opinion. There are plenty of other brands, some even cheaper, but I always choose this one.
Tesco Antibacterial washing up liquid does it's job well, for a very affordable price, so I see no reason to change.
When in my local branch of Tesco's the other week I needed to buy some washing up liquid and so headed to the relevant aisle in search of a good deal.
I noticed that the Tesco Antibacterial Washing Up Liquid costing 92p for 500ml was on special offer of 2 bottles for £1.20. I thought this sounded like a good deal so I bought two bottles.
The bottle is made from clear plastic and so is fully recycleable and has a flip top lid. Through the bottle I could see the lovely rich purple colour of the washing up liquid which is French Lavender fragrance.
The notes on the back of the bottle offer the customer the 'best ever performance, cleaning ability and grease removal'.
There are instructions for use on the back of the bottle although I can't imagine anyone actually needing to read instructions on how to use washing up liquid! Anyway as usual you just add it to your warm (or in my case hot) washing up water or you can use it neat on your dishcloth. Incidentally it is also safe to use in septic tanks.
When I came to use the washing up liquid the first things that I noticed was the fragrance of lavender and it is lovely. It seems to waft around the kitchen as I do the washing up which is nice.
The liquid itself was thicker than the cheap, value washing up liquids but not as thick as say Fairy for example. I used what I would consider to be a reasonable amount and was very impressed with the result.
There were plenty of bubbles and all the washing up came out sparkling clean which, after all, is what we want from a washing up liquid isn't it?
I found this liquid was plenty good enough to clean all my washing up and I have already purchased another two bottles whilst the offer is on to keep in the cupboard for when the first ones run out.
There are the usual warnings on the back of the bottle warning you not to get it in your eyes and to wash them well with clear water if you do. You are also advised not to use this if you have sensitive skin and to always rinse and dry your hands after use. We are also warned not to use this liquid to wash fabrics but again I can't really see anyone putting it in the washing machine!
To be fair I use it to wash my cloths after I have cleaned the windows and it does the job perfectly.
In conclusion I would say that although this is a short review there isn't really any more to say on the subject and I would definitely recommend this washing up liquid for price, fragrance and excellent cleaning.
What more could you want?
