“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Washing Up Liquid / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
Tesco Naturally Lemon Washing up Liquid is cheap at only 84p and it works fine in my personl opinion. The liquid is housed in a clear plastic bottle so you can see how much you have left and how much you have used. It has the usual flip top lid which is easy to remove.
The liquid itself I think is quite a bit thinner than Fairly Liquid or Sainsbury's own brand washing up liquid and you do need to use a little more but once you run the hot water onto it, it does gather up a fair few good bubbles.
The smell of lemon is not overriding. You can smell lemon, but just fainly and not enough to feel like your dishes are being tainted by lemons at all.
The liquid appears to be gentle and kind to the skin and I have been fine using this without the need for rubber gloves. My hands do not go dry after use and there are no patchy sore bits like I have had with other washing up liquids.
It cleans the dishes well enough although I do feel that for more ingrained and dried on food I will have to leave the dishes to soak in the suds for a little longer than I would have to with Fairy Liquid - almost until the water has got cold, so that's quite along time to wait.
A bit of elbow grease is also still required to remove some of the more stubborn stains.
Recommended but prefer the other type which is Fairy.

With me having very sensitive skin, I have to be careful with the types of products I am buying for the house and this includes things like washing up liquid. I have been using the Tesco Naturally range a lot when it comes to washing clothes but for my hands I've decided to make the change and try their lemon one too as it looks quite nice and hopefully it won't irritate my skin too much. The Naturally range covers quite a number of products now and I am always happy to give them a try.
This product comes in a sort of curved rectangular plastic bottle and it has the Naturally Tesco logo on the front and a picture of a lemon as well as the name of the product. The front is clear and the top is a pull up squeezy top and there is a label on the back which states what the product aims to do and lists ingredients and warnings. It is a 500ml bottle and the overall image is very simplistic and minimal which is quite nice and the bottle is very easy to hold.
TESCO NATURALLY WASHING UP LIQUID.
Firstly, the product aims to do quite a few things, it says that it has cleaning ingredients derived from plant extracts and cuts through grease to leave dishes sparkling clean. However, the product has a few warnings that it should be kept out of reach of children, and prolonged contact with skin should be avoided. Also, people with sensitive or damaged skin should use gloves which is what I normally do when I wash up anyway.
The product and ingredients are not tested on animals and it is in a recycles plastic bottle. This liquid is suitable for use in septic tanks and no synthetic colours are used. Now, to get onto actually using the liquid. It is a clear coloured liquid with a slight tint to it and I normally squeeze a blob onto a sponge as it is quite a runny consistency. The liquid foams up quickly when you pull up the pull cap and squeeze it out. I find the smell nice it is very citrus like and tangy but it is an obvious lemon smell which is fresh and clean.
With the liquid it does foam up a lot BUT I have found you have to use a lot or the foam runs out quickly so if you use a small amount it will hardly clean anything. However, it does say on the label that you should add sparingly to running water to use this so maybe that's the idea. This should not be stored in direct sunlight. I found with this that I have been using it quite a while and it seems to be doing really well as I haven't really had to use as much as I thought as 500ml lasts well atleast a month unless you have a big household and lots of dishes.
The label says that the cleaning ingredients in this formula are derived from coconut, maize and sugar compounds. I do recommend this liquid though as my dishes do look really clean and smell nice and it is very easy to use. My hands do not have any problems when in contact with this liquid and I just like this Naturally range a lot. I like that the liquid is clear and not a ridiculously bright colour. I will definitely buy it again and if you like to buy natural products, you will love this.
This product is available to buy from all Tesco stores and for the 500ml bottle it will cost you £1.02 but it has been taken from the online Tesco store at the moment.
INGREDIENTS: 15 - 30% Anionic surfactant. <5% Amphoteric surfactant, methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, perfume, limonene, citral.

We have recently been trying to combat rising prices, by trying to find a few cheaper items on the supermarket shelves, to help stop our weekly shopping bill from rocketing. It is amazing the difference that you can make by just choosing a few cheaper alternatives which are often the same quality as the premium brands and one of the things which we have started buying is Tesco naturally lemon washing up liquid. This washing up liquid is definitely not part of the Tesco value range, it is far better than that and more like the premium brands.
The 500ml bottle of Tesco naturally lemon washing up liquid costs 85 pence, which compares well next to the dearer alternatives which can cost about £1.40 for similar sizes of bottle. This is not a huge saving when taken by itself but if you change a few of the items on your shopping list then you will notice quite a difference at the checkout. The bottle itself is quite plain, it is see through with a very small amount of writing on it and a small picture of a lemon, very plain but it does the job. On top of the bottle is a cap which you pull open to squeeze out the washing up liquid.
The washing up liquid itself is quite clear with a yellowish tint to it. The washing up liquid is lemon, as far as I am aware lemon is the only variety of washing up liquid available in this range.
The smell of the lemon is very faint; it is a pleasant enough smell but not very strong which is a good thing in my opinion as you do not want your dishes smelling like lemons after they have been washed. The lemon smell is quite natural, it doesn't smell too artificial at all. Although it smells nice I haven't done a taste test, this may sound strange but my mum sometimes tells the story of how I drank a bottle of fairy washing up liquid when I was about two. Apparently the doctor just said not to worry, it would give me a good clean out!
When using the naturally lemon washing up liquid a small squirt seems to be enough so the bottle does last well. The liquid is not all that thick but it foams up well when you run the water on it and it seems to last well when you are doing the dishes. One thing that I have noticed is that this washing up liquid is not too harsh on your hands, which is especially good in my view as I have quite sensitive skin on my hands and they can often get dry and sore with some other products.
All in all, I would recommend the Tesco naturally lemon washing up liquid, a good alternative to some of the more expensive brands.
