“ Brand: Asda / Type: Bleach / Category: Laundry „
Most people have done a fair amount of Christmas shopping recently, buyinng excessive amounts of food and drink. We have been buying and eating more food than we usually do throughout the rest of the year, and with all that cooking comes extra cleaning. On Boxing Day evening, I made four different types of meals with the turkey and ham leftovers - that required a lot of cleaning in between bouts of cooking. I've been using this bleach for all sorts of cleaning purposes this Christmas, from doing my windows to scrubbing down the kitchen worktops - I don't have any complaints about its power as a cleaner and as it's currently on offer in Asda for £1.50 for two bottles it's really good value for money,
The pink version of the Asda thick bleach has an added perfume, and as much as I've sniffed it I can't be more specific about the scent than saying I think it's floral - the smell of chlorine overpowers it and makes anything more exact difficult. It is thick, very gloopy and doesn't run off vertical surfaces too quickly so it was great for adding neat to my windows and the bath. Another household item that has been enjoying the power of Asda'a pink thick bleach is my toilet - all that extra rich food we've been eating has got to go somewhere and this bleach eats its way voraciously through any stains which might get left behind in the toilet bowl. I haven't been needing to scrub the toilet, I just squirt this bleach on any offending stains, leave for an hour then flush and all is clean and sparkling again.
While I'm on the subject of admitting to embarrasing bodily functions, I've been on and off the cigarettes this Christmas and have been using it to get rid of the disgusting brown stains on my fingers that roll ups cause. A bit of a scrub with a bleachy nail brush and they soon go.
When I use this bleach to clean my kitchen worktops, I've been squirting a bit of it neat onto the surface then have given the worktop a vigourous scrub with a scotchbrite pad- it goes very foamy and spreads quite well. A rinse down with a damp cloth to remove the bleach after a period of time soaking leaves a wonderfully shiny surface. The one litre bottle lasts quite well, I think mainly because the bleach goes a long way and doesn't require a huge amount per application.
For it's value, effectiveness, variety of uses and end result I'll give this five stars, thanks for reading.
I started buying this bleach after promising ourselves that we would try to shop on more of a budget. Asda thick bleach comes in a 1.125 litre bottle and costs £1.12 however the majority of the time these are on offer at 2 for £1.50 which is definitely worth it.
This comes in a pink bottle with a red lid. The lid is very safe as you have to pinch the lid before turning it which would make it extremely difficult for a child to open it and as I have a toddler this is very reassuring. The pouring part of the bottle is curved to allow to easily reach in awkward place such as under the toilet rim.
It is claimed to kill 99.9% germs, kill MRSA, Salmonella and Listeria amongst others and gives 24 hour protection.
There is no particular reason why I chose the pink version of this, probably just the girl in me! I'm not completely sure why this is even in a different bottle as there isn't anything different about this compared to the original stuff- there's no floral smell to it so I'm just going to assume it's the novelty of it being in a pink bottle! The bleach itself just looks like normal bleach and also smells the same bleach smell, however one plus is that the smell isn't as overpowering as I've found with other brands before. I use bleach in many day to day chores but mainly to clean my floors and the toilet. I find this bleach cleans my floors effectively when mixed with water in my mop bucket and also removes any limescale from my toilet easily. I also use it to get rid of any germs from my dish cloth and I find it also does this effectively.
I won't buy the leading brand of bleach again, I just don't see the point in paying more for something that does exactly the same as the cheaper stuff.
Definitely recommend. 5 out of 5
Bleach is not someting that I use very often in our house as after doing a course at work I found out just how dangerous it can be, a lady had to be taken to hospital when she had used toilet cleaner and bleach and they hqad reacted together and burnt all her throat. Occassionally I like to give the toilet a really good clean and for this I do use bleach although I am nopw really careful that I haven't used any other products on it at the time.
I tend to buy whatever bleach is the cheapest and bought some of the Asdas bleach in their cleaning event when it was 75p a bottle, the cleaning event is on again now. I bought a couple of different bottles of thjeir bleach which you can get in 3 or 4 different varieties, the one i am reviewing here is the pink bottle which is supposed to be pink and lavendar.
The bottle is plastic and can be squeeze well enough to squeeze the product out of the spout which is hidden under a childproof lid which is obviously very important although I make sure I keep it on top of the bathroom cupboard but you can never be too careful.
The bleach inside the bottle is not quite clear but doesn't have an actual colour to it, the consistency as displayed on the bottle is thick and it does cling well to the toilet bowl, even though this is supposed to be pink and lavendar it still has a strong bleach smell to it along with a floral smell and I don't think you will ever disguise that no matter what the makers try to do. The bleach gives the toilet a really good clean and of course kills germs and bacteria, when I use it I tend to open the window since it smells quite strong and I only have a small bathroom.
I tend to use this bleach in the toilet after the children have gone to bed and then give it a scrub and rinse before i go to bed so it has a few hours to do it's job, you must be careful not to touch the bleach with your hands and of course if you splash your clothes then it will remove the colour from them.
I like this bleach it cleans the toilet well and gets rid of stains and water rings, it is a product that you really need to be careful with but it is good at the job. The scent isn't too bad as bleach goes and the price is great so no negatives from me.
I use bleach for a lot more cleaning than I really should. The trouble is I like cleaning with bleach because everything always looks and smells so much cleaner than any other cleaning products. I don't use bleach for eveverything, but quite a lot. One thing I most certainly use it on is the toilet.
I usually find that one bleach is much the same as another and although I have used a variety of brands, I was quite happy to settle to whatever was cheapest or best value and on offer at the time. My main store for buying bleach became the poundshops where you can usually pick up two bottle for £1.
A few days ago we did a rare ASDA shop as our local is a TESCO's. I was completely out of bleach for the toilet so brought some there. The offer was 2 for £1.50, but the botttles looked slightly larger so the value seemed quite good.
When I got it home I realised that the bleach I had been using from the pound shop was 750ml per bottle and these bottles were a massive 1.25 litres each, making the value pretty even, if not slightly cheaper.
However it was when I actually started to use the bleach that I realised the hidden value, the bleach from ASDA is a lot thicker and actually seems to hold to the sides of the toilet, whereas other bleaches always seem to slide straight off.
Another point was the smell, I walked away and left it to work for a good hour or more and when I returned the whole bathroom smelt of bleach, which I haven't noticed for quite a while.
I brought this bleach simply because it was on offer at 2 for £1.00. Being on a tight budget sometimes I am always on the look out for the bargins so this seemed perfect. The major leading brands can be very expensive so to find something that is cheaper and still does the same job is great.
The bottle is made out from very sturdy plastic with a red plastic safety cap. The top of the bottle bend to the side and narrows down, making it easier to clean under the rim of the toilet. The safety cap will not turn until the sides are squeezed and turned at the same time. Great if you have little ones running around. Under the cap there is a clear plastic nozzel to make pouring the bleach easier and less chance of it going everywhere and ruining your clothing and other items.
The bottle is bright pink, making it very easy to spot in your cleaning cupboard and it has a white label telling you the product.
Now i never bleach my toilet as i believe it doesnt actually clean it properly, it just bleaches the lime scale in the toilet bowl so my bleach is mostly used to clean out the mop bucket and moping the floors so i dont tend to use alot of it. Normally a bottle will last me for 2 weeks however because this bleach is very thick, this bottle of bleach can last me up to 3 weeks or more. Even after it seems like all the bleach has gone i can fill the bottle with water. give it a shake and can still have enough to mop my floors another 2 more times and it still be very affective.
Asda do a few different scents to their bleach however i dont seem to smell to much of anything with this only other than bleach itself. You can get a very very small amount of a floral scent to it but not enough to notice really. The bleach is very strong too so you only need a very small amount of it and the scent of it can be a little over powering if you use to much of it.
Since finding this product I havent gone back to using the more expensive brands because this does the same job and is a lot cheaper. When the bleach isnt on offer it is normally about 75p per bottle but its not very often that they are not on offer.
I have given this 4 out of 5 for the simple face being it does have a very strong scent and can be over powering if you have to use it thoughout the whole house as I do because every room has laminate and i love that the bleach kills so many germs.
Asda make a few different 'flavoured' bleaches and their Pink creation is a lovely scented bleach in a crimson coloured sturdy plastic bottle with child-proof safety top which you have to squeeze and grip to open. It is hard to open the first time you use it though I personally find with this brand.
The bleach is like the others in Asda's own range, it is cheap at 75p a bottle but you can very often get it cheaper when it is on offer.
The bleach is of a great thick consistency and clings well to the sides of the toilet bowl and doesn't slip away at once like some cheap bleaches are prone to do.
It is an impressive bacteria killing and germ killing liquid bleach and you don't have to open the windows for ventilation as the smell is really quite pleasant.
It lasts for ages as you don't really need to use a great deal in order to get great results and I would really recommend this one. I prefer it to the Arctic scent as this one is more floral without it being sickly sweet.
It removes all stains from inside the toilet bowl when left for as little as fifteen minutes but I leave it in our overnight and the following morning just flush the loo and all the nasty stains and blemishes have magically gone.
It is harsh to the skin though so wear gloves to be on the safe side when using and be careful not to spill on clothing or fabric. I think it compares very favourably with the leading brands and would opt for this one as it is far cheaper and just as good.

One product that I always make sure I have at home is bleach and to be honest I am not all that fussy which one I use as long as it does the job I want it to. When I was shopping in Asda though I saw a pink container with bleach in and this was enough to swing it for me as I love anything pink and so I bought it and took it home.
As I said the bleach comes in a pink plastic bottle which looks like many other bleach bottles in that it has a curved part in the middle which makes it easier to hold and a kind of pointed nozzle at the top where you squirt the bleach from. This particular bottle has a label around its middle which tells us that it is part of the Asda chosen by you range and that this thick bleach will kill 99.9% of germs including MRSA, Clostridium difficile, E coli, Salmonella and Listeria. On the back of the bottle you are provided with instructions on how to use the bleach and you are of course warned that the product is an irritant and should be kept out of the way of children and such like.
Now at home I generally use bleach for just two purposes. The first is to clean the toilet bowl and the second is to clean my yard each day after my dog. Cleaning the toilet bowl is easy using this bleach as you simply need to remove the child proof cap and squirt the bleach under the rim of the bowl. I always then use my toilet brush to scrub around the bowl and then leave the bleach to do its thing in the bowl for a couple of hours before flushing. You could of course do this at night and leave the product over night before flushing I suppose too. The bleach does a good job at making my toilet look and smell clean which is all I can ask from it I feel. Whenever I bleach the back yard I always throw some water out first and then squirt some bleach around before scrubbing it in to the paved slabs with a large brush. When I have done this I will rinse the yard thoroughly because obviously I don't want my dog to be walking around and getting bleach on her paws. The bleach does a good job of cleaning the yard and a tip which an old man once gave me was that when your paving slabs can go a bit green and mossy after lots of rain if you add some bleach and are apple to scrub it in and then leave it for a few hours it will do a great job of bringing the stone up looking great again.
Obviously this is bleach and so it will change the colour of your clothes should you get it on them. I have found that the splash back from cleaning the yard has jumped on to several pairs of my leggings and left me with small reddy coloured dots on them which is something to be mindful of!
This product is fine for my needs at home. It comes in a 1.125l bottle which lasts me quite a while and from memory I think a bottle costs around a pound which I think is good value. You can of course use bleach around the house for pouring down drains but this isn't something that I really need to do very often. The plastic bottle is widely recycled though the cap is not as yet so the majority of the packaging needn't be thrown away after use. I have to say though that the bleach is pretty much standard and the "pink" name is a bit confusing as I was expecting it to be pink bleach or something but it is just normal coloured!
Thank you for reading my review!
First off the first time I bought this bleach was because it was in a pink bottle and on offer at two for £1.
I always think that it doesn't matter too much what bleach you use and when domestos is more than twice the price then this is definately a bargain.
The bottle has a twisted neck with a red child safety cap that has to be squeezed at the sides and screwed off to open. I like this because it means that if for any reason my little one was able to get into the bleach then he definately would never be able to open the bottle avoiding any unfortunate accidents.
Underneath the cap there is a clear plastic nozzle meaning that the bleach goes where you want it to go, avoiding the potential for getting it on and ultimately ruining your clothes!
The shape of the bottle makes it easy to get under the rim of the toilet meaning it too can get a good clean.
There is a label round the bottle detailing the safe use of the product and stating that it is thick bleach which I always find gives a better clean than thin bleach.
I use this product mainly now unless a better brand is cheaper simply because this is a great product. It gives a really good clean on the bathroom (toilet, sink and bath). I use it to clean round the sink as well as mixing some with water for a spray or some in a bucket to mop the floors.
I would say this product gives a clean just as good as the leading brands and is definately worth a try to save yourself some money in the process.
When it comes to Bleach I think that no matter what brand you buy it is still bleach! So when you are looking at Domestos at double to price of Asda's I think it only makes sense to go for the cheaper option!
Asda's bleach is normally on offer at 2 bottles for £1.00 so you can't really go wrong with the price!!!
It comes in a plastic bottle with a child safety cap which sometimes I struggle to get into so you don't need to worry about the safety!!!
The label says 'Thick Bleach' but to be honest I wouldn't class it as thick bleach, the first time i used it i squeezed the bottle thinking it was thick and it came out very quick!
The spout that it comes out from is plastic with a small opening so you don't get the entire contents coming out! I do think it could be a bit better designed so you can get it under your toilet rim but it's not too bad.
It does the job and you can't really complain at the price!
I admit that I have never really a fan of bleach. I hated the smell of it, it always finds a way into my nails that I bite and gives me pain and I always get it on my best clothing cos I'm a clumsy clot! So I have always done my best to avoid it at all costs lol.
However at the moment I am staying with my mate. I had noticed this bottle of bleach in her bathroom and ignored it for ages. Every time I did a bit of cleaning I opted to use anything but this!
However the other day I put a wash on for us both. Not thinking I did a mixed wash at 40C. When I got the washing out I had turned her white bras and her favourite vest top grey and was a bit horrified by that fact! Being what she calls a genius at housework and like Bree out of desperate housewives at things such as taking care of a home, I couldn't admit to that mistake cos I'd never live it down. I ran upstairs shoved the offending articles in a bucket and added loads of hot water to it and a blob of this and left it overnight to soak before washing it all through on a hot wash!
I was amazed the following morning after doing it all that her things looked all brand new again! My mate was delighted with her white washing and I never admitted to her my mistake. So that was my introduction to this product and since then, I use it for almost everything and am just mega careful when doing so!
Bright pink plastic bottle with a slightly curved nozzle to the top of it and a red screw on/off safety cap to the top of it (push hard and turn it). Around the middle of the bottle there is a white label and on that I'm told that it is Asda, Thick Bleach, 'Pink' and that it is 750ml in size. Other information on the bottle includes being told a bit about the product, directions for use are listed, ingredients and warning are given and contact details for Asda are as usual given on Asda's own branded products lol. Nice bright bottle this is and of course it's easy enough to open but not for kids and it's all informative enough.
Ok so lets talk about what germs it kills as that is what bleach is really meant for! It kills MRSA, Clostridium difficile, E. coli, Salmonella and Listeria (when used neat). This is safe to use in septic tanks. This is also suitable for using on stains and whitemarks and can help to prevent limescale and basically this is can be used for general disinfecting and cleaning purposes, including bleaching fabrics if desired.
You can use this in all sorts of ways of course! Use like I did to bleach whites diluted. Use it on worktops (wiping thoroughly after doing so of course), use under the rim of toilets, wipe scum off baths and tiles, really this as a bleach that is very versatile of course just watch your skin and clothes!
Apart from the fact that this in a pink bottle that's all that is actually pink about it! The bleach is rather thick and transparent containing no colour at all and has simply what I can only describe as the usual harsh bleach fragrance rally! I was expecting either/and a pink colour to the liquid or a pinky sort of floral smell but really there is nothing special about it apart from that it's a rather girly looking bottle!
As I stated earlier I made a mix up to use on whites and it worked a treat! As long as you don't add much, let it all soak and really wash it through well and not put the bleach directly onto fabrics thus turning them an off cream colour I couldn't believe how well it worked!
I also have removed curry stains from worktops and it simply removes them on a cloth with ease. The nozzle on this means it's easy to put under toilet rims etc and again it does actually remove any grime and smells away from there in quick time. I mop the floors with this too and again don't need much in water and not only does it remove in-bedded dirt and grease but it brings up things to looking really clean and feeling it too!
I recommend this bleach really highly. I use it all the time and now it is back on my shopping list for this week! Be careful with it, follow the directions given on the bottle (they are there for a reason of course) and your house can be as clean as my mates is now!
Only available in Asda stores costing 73p a bottle but at the time of writing this review it is on offer that alot of Asda's own bleaches are on offer at 2 for a pound!
