Advantages: good results and smell
Disadvantages: a little dearer than Tesco own
Having experimented with a variety of washing tablets of late, I decided to give the Bold a tablets a shot. The two in one tablets are designed so that you do not need to use a softener as well. Obviously the option is there if you do still want to put in a dash of Comfort or something.
Available in a range of scents, to cater for all noses. The lavender one seemed a good one to plump for, especially in this harsh winter season. If you sniff the tablets, you will get a strong aroma of what they are about to offer. It is a fresh and exhilarating scent which stimulates the nasal passages.
It is worth sticking two tablets into a wash for a heavy load, but you could just about get away with one if you're just washing a few smalls I reckon. You may either stick them into a drawer or directly into the machine. I usually put mine into the drawer, feeling this allows them to travel through the water better initially.
The results are pleasing. Clothes smelt very fresh after just one wash and there is definite aromatic aroma of lavender in the air, which not only clings to the clothes but also helps keep the wardrobe smelling good. Compared to Tesco Colours, the smell on the Bold tablets is more ravishing and exciting, but I guess it would depend on how floral you want your clothes to smell. In terms of softeness, pretty good here too with an earnest amount of bounce to the clothes after they had dried and no stifness.
In terms of value for money, it is dearer than a shop bought brand, a thirty pack of these tablets is about a pound or so more than the Tesco Colour tablets, which usually cost about three pounds. However, they do deliver a great clean, a powerful and not too overwhelming scent and longevity. Would I buy again, yes I would.
Summary: pretty good
