Tesco Washing Up Liquid
Advantages: cheap, washes well
Disadvantages: scent not very strong
I have a dishwasher but still do the odd bit of washing up by hand. For this purpose, I have a bottle of washing up liquid in the house - this is usually Fairy but I recently decided to give Tesco's own version a try as this was considerably cheaper. There are various scents available in the range - original, lemon and spring apple and there is also an antibacterial range with Eucalyptus and Lime & Lemongrass.
The liquids cost 85p for a bottle of 500ml in the ordinary range and £1.11 in the antibacterial range. These are currently on promotion at two for £1.20 (a particularly good offer for the antibacterial range!). I opted for the Lime & Lemongrass antibacterial liquid. This is a bright green in colour.
The bottle is made of clear plastic with a plastic flip cap as most washing up liquids have. The liquid can be applied to running water by squeezing the sides of the bottle. The liquid foams up really well under running water to give a good amount of bubbles. There is also a fresh lemony scent as the liquid is poured that is quite strong. I find that only a small amount of liquid is required to fill a washing up bowl with bubbles.
The liquid also seems to be pretty effective and cleaning dishes. In a normal wash, just a small amount of scrubbing with a sponge is required on tougher dried on food etc. I also use this to soak more heavily soiled pots and pans and it helps to lift off quite a bit of the dried on food etc. I would say that it is not quite as effective as Fairy in this way but it does a decent job none-the-less.
For the price, this is a good washing up liquid that does a pretty good job. The scent doesn't last very long but it is a pleasant aroma and it doesn't matter to me that the scent isn't too strong. The important thing is that it cleans my dishes well and doesn't leave any soap marks or residue on them. I am really pleased with the effects but am unsure if the 'antibacterial' function actually works as I am unable to test this! I would definitely recommend this to you as the price saving on branded alternatives is quite large.
Summary: pretty decent
