“ Brand: Asda / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
I've always thought that easy iron fabric conditioners are just a waste of time that do not do what they say. But I asked my mum (yes, I'm a 14 year girl who does the ironing for money!!) to try this out, as asda don't break the bank. She agreed, and so we tryed it out, and haven't stopped using it since. It smells gorgeous, but isn't overpowering. It also makes clothes softer, and a lot easier to iron. I now enjoy putting on my once itchy school jumper because it's now silky soft, and the nice smell lingers which is nice. To be honest I can't tell you the price, as I'm not entriely sure, but it's not at all expensive. I'd recomend this to anybody.
I am all for buying anything that saves me time and energy. When the easy iron fabric softeners came onto the market I was first in the queue. I am also a bit of a bargain hunter, I will go to all four of the big stores (Sainsburys, Asda, Tesco and Safeway) as and when I feel each one has the best offers. Asda is one of those that I visit on a regular basis. They have consistently low prices and their own brand is like any other — good value IF you like it. My lovely family mean a lot to me but they do create a lot of washing which also means they create a lot of the dreaded IRONING! I have never been a big fan of ironing, not because I hate doing it, as chores go it is one of the best as you can watch TV at the same time, but it is very time consuming. I will do anything that saves time. So here's where I come to Asda easy iron fabric conditioner. The variety I am reviewing is the 'concentrated' variety. It comes in a 750 ml bottle in various fragrances, my favourite being 'Zest'. It will set you back a piddly 97p. You need one capful per wash, one capful being 30 mls. Those of you who are good at maths will make that 25 washes per bottle. That means each wash works out less than 4p. This particular brand says on the label that it "softens your whole wash, reduces static cling and helps make ironing easier". After using it now for a period of a few months I have to say that it 'does exactly what it says on the tin' plus the 'Zest' variety leaves it smelling gorgeous and fresh. The only problem I have found with it is that sometimes there can be a smear of it left on dark clothing, particularly slippery fabrics like polyester. I have had to wash the items again which is a pain but it hasn't happened that often so I haven't been put off buying the product. Ironing will never be a thing of the past but this fabric conditioner does make it easier. Some item
s of clothing do not need ironing at all if you hang them straight from the wash and I've noticed that the items that do still need to be ironed take less time. I've found the best results on denims, they are most definitely softer and much easier to iron, I also find I don't need to use as much steam to get the creases out and the iron can be set at a lower temperature — also saving energy and therefore more money!
