Bold 2 in 1
Advantages: Lovely fragrance
Disadvantages: Did not wash 10 washes
I am one of the very few people I know that actually enjoys trying different types and varieties of washing powder, from tablets to powder, you name it I have tried it!
I brought the Lavender and Chamomile 800g box around 2 weeks ago, and it has just ran out. I have used bolds 2 in 1 powders before and have often found they do not live up to all they promise, however this 2 en 1 was/is different to the other powders within the range - I'm sure of it.
As soon as you open up the box you can instantly smell the frange which is strong, feminine yet fresh smelling all at the same time. After getting the first scoop out of the box I thought the fragrance would disappear, leaving my washing smelling just clean, however I was pleasantly suprised. I could smell the pretty floral scent of the powder even when it was in the drawe of my washing machine which I was very impressed with.
I wash all loads on 30/cold wash, and thought this might cause some of the scent to be lost during washing, however I was yet again suprised in a good way. I pulled the washing out and could still smell (virtually instantly the lavender, which was lovely)
So, it had passed the washing stage, but the real test was going to be would it pass the 12 hour stage (as it says on the top of the box - 12 hours of wear clean and fresh feeling) I found that with each piece of clothing washed in the bold 2 in 1, lavender and chamomile, clothes stayed fresh for aroun 8 hours, which was good enough for me, maybe I didnt use enough?
I brought this box fore £3.50 from my local tesco express store, which I thought was a little bit pricey, but hey it was convenient. I am sure you can get it for a lot cheaper if you are prepared to shop around.
Lastly and not leastly the only thing I haveto comment on is the texture of the powder and how many washes I was able to get out of an 800g box. Firstly, the powder is white with little blue bits (crystals) in and looks very much like any other washing powder I have seen before, and secondly I only got 9 washes out of my box, even though it says I should get 10 (For the record I followed washing guidelines on side of box)
In conclusion if you want fresh smelling clothes that leave you feeling clean and fresh for 8 hours, then this is the product to buy.
Summary: A good washing powder that leaves clothes feeling clean and fresh for a good few hours
