“ Brand: Asda / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
I love products I haven't tried before and one thing I love to do is washing! Staying with my mate at the moment I've been getting through gallons of washing products so when I saw this was 'Eco Friendly' and was on offer at the time I purchased it in Asda and at 2 bottles for only £1.50 it seemed a good idea to me to stock up with some! I mean not only would I be getting a good deal I may not be so responsible for global warming using this...and that's not a bad thing lol!
750ml see-through (ish) plastic bottle with a slight curve to the centre of the bottle for ease of handling and it has a screw on/off lid/cap to the top of it. On the front of the bottle there is a white label with leaves on it and I am told that it is Asda Eco-Friendly Fabric Conditioner 'Cleaning ingredients derived from plant-based materials. Leaves clothes soft & fresh. Approved by the Vegan Society'. I am also told that per bottle you should get 21 standard washes from it. On the back of the bottle other information given includes being told a bit about the product, how to use it, ingredients and warnings are listed, size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for Asda are clearly given. Nice, functional bottle that really is very informative and easy to handle.... this is.
A Bit About the Product According To The Information Listed On The Back Of The Bottle:
No petrochemical ingredients
No artificial colours
100% natural fragrance
Product not tested on animals
Approved by the Vegan Society
Suitable for septic tanks
This packaging can be recycled where facilities exist
Well you do with this is use the amount per wash as stated on the back of the bottle. You need about half a capful for hand washing, a full capful for a standard machine load or you can use 2 capfuls for large loads or extra freshness. I have used all of those stated doses since owning this!
The liquid is white and of course runny but not like water and it does contain 'body' so to speak. It has a lovely delicate and natural sweetness to it and smells fresh, uplifting and above all clean with a fragrance to me that is a bit zesty and lemony with an undertone of 'green' to it. Unisex in fragrance it really is a lovely smell indeed!
I mostly use this in a full machine wash and of course put it in the dispenser draw of said machine. I have noticed it goes bubbly looking in the machine when rinsing this through the washing but it rinses out superbly whether using the maximum dose stated or the one capful.
It leaves clothes smelling really lovely and fresh and not only in the short term either. Both me and my friend have grabbed things out of the wardrobes etc a week or so after I have used this and our clothes have still smelt beautifully fragranced!
Not only that the washing really does feel soft and bouncy and above all clean and with no sort of residue in it. Everything about this is wonderful actually. I noticed prior to using this conditioner that the fibres in my jumpers sometimes felt itchy against my skin. With this it really does soften fabrics without taking the life out of the fibres and making clothes feel horrible, limp and lifeless.
Hand washing is great with this as well. The water goes a murky colour, when you add it, the fragrance is released and you can swish the water about slightly and get a few bubbles if you want some. Again it softens water and clothes, doesn't agitate the skin on the hands and rinses out of fabrics with ease!
Recommend from me and if not on the offer I purchased it at expect to pay a pound a bottle. Great stuff people!
