Advantages: No measuring out liquid, No Nets, No Mess
Disadvantages: Slightly Bulky Packaging
Ariel Liqui-Tabs are a new product from Proctor & Gamble. Liqui-Tabs contain a concentrated liquid detergent encased in a water-soluble film that dissolves completely in the washing machine. Each Liqui-Tab contains the right amount of liquid for a normal wash load. At the moment they come in packs of 12 Tabs and each Tab is individually sealed in the pack.
The average selling price is around £3.49 per box of 12 tabs which works out at approx. 29p per tab per wash which I think is slightly more expensive than some other well known tablets.
Liqui-Tabs are extremely easy to use and there's no mess and need to measure out liquid in a dosing ball or no need for a net.
To use simply pop the Liqui-Tab into your washing machine drum and put your washing straight in on top of the Liqui-Tab (This is so that the Liqui-Tab starts dissolving straight away as the machine is filling).
I have found them extremely convenient and easy to use and they have given great cleaning results, which with 3 children is essential.
My youngest son has sensitive skin and there are some detergents that I just can't use i.e. Sainsburys, Bold, Surf etc. but I have had no problems at all with the Liqui-Tabs.
The only downside I have found with them is that the packaging is slightly bulkier than I would prefer.
All in all I think Ariel Liqui-Tabs are a very good product.
