Tesco Bathroom Wipes
Advantages: Cleans well, easy to use, cheap
Disadvantages: leave a smell on fingers after use
When I got to the checkout on my last shopping trip I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to get my usual multi purpose wipes so asked hubby to go and grab a packet. Now I have been using the same brand for a very long time but for some reason hubby could not remember which ones they were and came back with these ones. I did let him off though as I did need them for the bathroom and decided I would try these instead.
The wipes come in a flat packet which is very similar to a packet of baby wipes. It is blue in colour and has the product name at the top with a picture of a shiny bathroom and under this is a red rectangle which contains the claims that these wipes will remove soap scum and control the build up of lime scale. The back of the packet has a white rectangle down the left hand side which has all of the relevant information on these wipes, including the directions for use, warnings and the ingredients which have been used to make the wipes.
The front of the packet has a clear sticky tab which is to allow you to lift and pull out one of the wipes and then stick the tab back down and keep the remaining wipes fresh and moist in the packet.
~~USE AND RESULTS~~
The wipes are white in colour and a good size. They are bigger than standard baby wipes which allows for more cleaning from one wipe. When I opened the sticky tab I instantly noticed that there was a smell from the wipes. The smell is not at all overpowering and is very pleasant. It does kind of remind me of the smell of Dettol.
I used these wipes all around my bathroom and found it was so easy to clean everywhere and leave it nice and shiny. The wipes could easily remove the bits of dirt which were in the bottom of my bath and the dried on remains of the bubble bath which my boys had had earlier in the day. The taps were all left lovely and shiny when they had been quickly wiped over and they did for once look exceptionally clean. I found that these wipes did make light work of removing dried on toothpaste from around the bathroom sink which was a big bonus for me.
I did find there was no residue on the bath, sink or taps when I had wiped them over with these wipes and the fragrance was very apparent throughout the bathroom which for me made it smell and feel very clean.
The wipes are not to be flushed down the toilet and are to be thrown away in the normal household rubbish. As this is the case I did not use these wipes to clean the toilet so I cannot comment on how effective they are for this job.
I did use them on the floor which was a great thing to do as it managed to remove all of the dirty foot print and leave it lovely and clean.
The smell in the bathroom stayed for a good few hours after being cleaned with these wipes and it was lovely to walk upstairs and be able to smell it.
The wipes come in a pack size of 80 but if you are cleaning a large surface then 2 wipes may be required. I paid just under the £1 mark from Tesco for my pack and thought this was a bargain. The wipes are not available from other shops as they are Tesco's own brand.
The wipes are made up from the follow ingredients:-
Anionic Sufactant, Non-ionic Surfactant, Perfume, Benzisothiazolinone, Aliphatic Hydrocarbon.
There are a few warning which are listed on the back of the packet which include the usual avoiding contact with eyes, washing hands after use, and if you have sensitive skin then it is recommended that you wear gloves when using the wipes. The wipes are also not recommended for use on marbled surfaces or fabrics.
The packet which the wipes come in is recyclable.
I am going to recommend these wipes as they give a wonderful clean to all bathroom surfaces and leave a lovely fresh and clean smell. One thing I will recommend this that you do not use these wipes before making lunch as they do leave the smell on your hands and fingers which is very hard to get off and may make foods taste a bit funny.
I would just like to say thanks to hubby for his excellent new find for me!
