      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good alternative to branded washing up liquid

      I received a 450ml bottle of this Tesco own brand washing up liquid as part of a product trial. I usually avoid supermarket versions of cleaning products, fearing that they are not up to the same quality standards as the well-known household names, but this one turned out to be surprisingly good.

      This washing up liquid comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip top lid. Inside there is a small spout that allows you to dispense the washing up liquid by squeezing on the sides of the bottle. The liquid itself is a bright yellow colour which matches in with the lemon theme, and also helps to make it easy to see how much product is left inside.

      Recommended directions for use: "Dilute sparingly in warm water."

      To use, you simply add to a bowl of running hot water. The liquid itself has a light gel consistency and mixes into the water easily to produce a large amount of bubbles. The bubbles last very well which is great as I still get the full cleaning power for the whole time that I'm washing. I have found that it works well to clean my dishes, removing all leftover traces of food. The staying power of the bubbles helps to get through the whole load of washing up, but the soap suds do seem to cling onto the dishes, especially when I am trying to clean anything that is a bit oily or greasy. I need to rinse these dishes afterwards to make sure that there is not any residue left behind. I enjoy using scented cleaning products and feel like it makes doing a boring chore a tiny bit more pleasant. This washing up liquid has a lovely fruity fragrance which has a sweet tone to it, and is not as sharp as citrus scents can usually be.

      Overall, I think this is a decent washing up liquid and a good buy if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the branded versions.

        a great own brand washing up liquid

        As my kitchen is rather on the small side I do not have the room for a dishwasher so all of our pots are washed by me! To say that there is only two of us that live in our home we do seem to make an awful lot of washing up and that therefore means that we get through a large amount of washing up liquid. Now this is a cleaning product that although I like the branded versions I am keener on saving money so will opt for what is on offer at the time. My last purchase was a multi-buy offer and included me purchasing a bottle of the Tesco Lemon washing up liquid.

        The lemon washing up liquid can obviously only be purchased from Tesco stores and costs £0.85 for a 500ml bottle or you can currently purchase two bottles for £1.20. I thought this was an excellent offer and purchased the lemon and another bottle of a different fragrance to try.

        The washing up liquid comes in a more modern bottle than the one pictured above. It is a clear plastic bottle with a red flip top cap. As the bottle is made of clear plastic it allows you to easily see how much is left in the bottle. On the back of the bottle is a stick on label which tells you a little more about the washing up liquid, directions for use and warnings.

        I do always use rubber gloves to do my washing up as I do get the odd break out of eczema on my hands and this is usually triggered by using cleaning products. Now I have on occasion used this washing up liquid without gloves when wiping down a surface or just washing a couple of things and have not had any adverse effect on my skin but it is advisable to wash your hands after use.

        To use the washing up liquid you simple squeeze a small amount into warm water, I tend to squeeze it in when the water is still running into the bowl as it creates more suds. This lemon liquid has a lovely fresh zesty fragrance which smells lovely when you are washing up but it does not linger on the pots after. On the label it states that the washing up liquid 'cleans as well as the leading brand in independent laboratory test' now I will agree with this as I have been very impressed with it. It leaves glassware sparkling, dissolves grease and also makes easy work of stubborn burnt on food without the need for too much scrubbing. Now if I do have a really dirty pan or dish then I do soak them for a little first in some hot water with washing up liquid which I have done on several occasions with this lemon liquid and again have been impressed with the results as it has loosened the dirt well allowing me to then wash the item without the need for using a scourer.

        Overall I have been very impressed with this washing up liquid, not only does it have a lovely fresh fragrance it cleans extremely well and is certainly a excellent price especially whilst on offer!

          A good cheap washing up liquid that works well

          I have to admit to be sceptical about discount brands, but like many people, I'm having to buy them in order to save money, so when I saw this washing-up liquid I thought I'd give it a try.

          This is the cheapest of Tesco's own-brand washing up liquids and it is priced at about 61p per 500ml bottle. The bottle itself is somehwat old-fashioned in looks, just a plain plastic tube with a red squirter on the top witha flip lid, but that doesn't bother me. It looks much like the old Fairy Liquid bottles. It's easy to grab hold of and is small enough to store away out of sight in the cupboard.

          As to the liquid's effectiveness, I actually found it to be quite good. It has a lovely lemony scent, but it isn't too overpowering. The liquid squirts out without going all over the place and you don't need all that much to get a good lather. It cleans the dishes really well and it gets off all the grease from pots and pans. I found one bottle lasted a good couple of weeks, and I use it up to about 5 times a day, so it is long-lasting.

          It's not the cheapest of the discount brands, I have found others that cost slightly less and are as good, but it is a very good washing-up liquid that does the job!

          If I can't get my usual cheap brand, then this is always my second choice.

          Does a good enough job for me!

          Nice liquid.

          People know that from reading my reviews on a regular basis that I do my fair share of the household chores. I do not mind doing the washing up or any chore that I have to do because cleaning tasks do not worry me in the slightest. I do not mind doing the dishes but I have to wash them with a fairly decent liquid, even if it is a cheaper one, I don't mind so long as I do not have to keep scrubbing etc because the liquid is too thin.

          I bought this washing up liquid from Tesco because it was cheap, it only cost 61p for a 500ml bottle and so a good price. The bottle is a thick plastic and it has a flip lid. It is a wide bottle with just a picture of a lemon on the front of the bottle.

          The liquid inside is a yellow colour because this one is a Lemon fragrance. It is very easy to squeeze from the bottle into the sink. The smell is quite strong. It is quite a rich texture and it creates quite a lot of bubbles for the cheap price. I was not too sure if it would actually create so many bubbles but it does. The bubbles do not fizzle for quite some time after it is in the water.

          It cuts into my greasy plates and cutlery, it cleans my pans very well too. It also cleans my glasses and gives them a nice shine. They sparkle and look nice and clean after I have washed them. I do think it takes very little effort to wash the dishes with this liquid because it is a good quality. I had a pan that was had a burned base after I had burned some food while cooking and I just poured a little of the liquid into the pan with some hot water and left it to soak for awhile and then I just used a scourer to clean the base and it took away the food and the pan was nice and clean, ready to use again.

          I find it is easy to rinse from the dishes too. Only a small amount is needed with this liquid and a little goes a very long way. It does say on the back of the bottle that it is not suitable to wash fabrics as it can ruin them. I use a little of this liquid to just soak my dish cloths in a bowl at the end of the day and it cleans them very well.

          I would certainly recommend this liquid if you are looking to buy a cheaper brand as I think it is very good value for the money. I will buy it again as I like it a lot and it cleans my dishes etc very well indeed.

          I rate this one 5 stars.

            Well worth buying

            I don't have a dishwasher so therefore I regularly have to buy washing up liquid. I am never brand loyal and frequently try different ones. The one I'm using at the moment is Tesco Lemon Washing -Up Liquid. Its costs 61p for a 500ml bottle.

            It comes in a basic white plastic bottle with a red flip top lid. The bottle I'm using is slightly different to the one Dooyoo are showing. It has Tesco Washing Up Liquid written across the top and has lemons pictured underneath. The word Lemon is written in green letters and it promises to leave "dishes sparkling clean" and has "effective grease removal".

            The back of the bottle gives the instructions for use which are simply given as:- use sparingly! Also some standard warnings and the ingredients.

            The warnings are, as I said, pretty usual for this type of product:- keep out of the reach of children, avoid contact with the product when neat if your skin is cracked or damaged, avoid contact with eyes and don't use on fabrics or clothing. I'm surprised at that last one because I frequently rub washing up liquid, this one included, into stains before doing the washing. Particularly Marks football kit which is white and I have never had any problems.

            So, to the actual liquid, I was expecting it to be yellow but in fact its green. It has a lemon fragrance which is nice and fresh. Its reasonably thick, not as runny as some I've tried but certainly not as thick as the branded liquids.

            I find that when washing up I don't need to use much of this, just a little squirt will produce a bowl full of bubbles. It does, as it promises, cut through grease and leaves dishes clean and sparkling. How long the soap suds lasts depends on what I actually have in the bowl. If its just coffee mugs, tea plates etc then its fine. There's plenty of lather to do the job however, if its roasting tins or something like a lasagne dish then it does sometimes need extra, the suds just don't last.

            On the whole I would recommend giving this Tesco washing up liquid a try. It lasts me roughly 3-4 weeks depending on what it has to clean so I think that's pretty good value. It does a good enough job and I do use it for stains on clothes, although the warnings do state not to, and I use it for cleaning when I just need a bucket of soapy water. This liquid doesn't irritate my skin and its far better than the Value washing-up liquid but not as good as Fairy, but for 61p I'm not complaining.


            This washing-up liquid is not tested on animals and as far as I am aware the bottle can go in the re cycling bin.

            One other point, as its quite a traditional shaped bottle its good for making a rocket as my little Nephew will tell you.

              A decent quality washing up liquid!

              One thing we (me and my flatmate) get through in our flat is washing up liquid! We, until recently always bought really cheap stuff however we decided that although we didn't want to spend a small fortune on this type of product we needed better than we had been using for the past few months as we were running out all of the time and it was working out false economy in the long run as well as not doing the best job possible either.

              I spotted this in Tesco the other day on a buy one get one free offer and felt that it was still really cheap costing £1.20 a bottle (all the better as I got one free of course!) and decided to get it to try out.

              The Packaging:

              The see-through plastic bottle holds 500ml of the yellow transparent washing up liquid and has an attached red lid top to the top of it. On the front of the bottle we are told that it is Tesco Lemon Washing Up Liquid 'Long Lasting Cleaning Power' and that it has an improved fragrance. On the back of the bottle other information listed includes directions for use and warning being given, the ingredients used are given as is the size (as I have listed already) and contact details for Tesco are also stated. I like the design of the bottle as it has a slight curve to the middle of it for ease of handling and of course it is informative enough as it needs to be too.

              The Washing Up Liquid Itself:

              As I previously mentioned this is a bright yellow, see-through gel liquid, rather runny but not watery either. It has a strong zesty smell and it is a bit lemony and very fresh however it is a faked up sort of fragrance....but pleassant enough but not one bit natural in my opinion.

              You only need a small squirt of this in warm water to create a small amount of white froth in/on water, the water smells nice enough...as does my kitchen and the water feels nice and not one bit greasy neither.

              I find this to do a brilliant job on my dirty stuff. If I have stubborn pans I squirt some of this in with some water and allow them to soak for a while, its great at adding a shine to my glasses (though I do polish them with a clean dry cloth afterwards) and feel that it is a great dirt, grease and grime buster! It doesn't harm my kitchen things or my hands and leaves stuff smelling fresh for ages after using it!

              This works out to be a very economical product due to the small smount you need per time you use it and it gets a thumbs up from us!

              Only available in Tesco stores costing £1.20 a bottle though it is on offer with any two fragrances of this brands washing up liquid at two for the price of one bottle of course!
