BOLD WASHING POWDER 2IN1
'''WHAT IS BOLD?'''
Bold is a laundry detergent made by Proctor & Gamble (P&G) the same as Ariel, Daz and fairy. Oh! Sorry! My mistake! I meant it is different to Ariel, Daz and Fairy. The difference is Bold contains a fabric softener, so there is no need to have a separate softener! This means no waste and no mess!
Bold is available 6 different fragrances and also available in gel, powder, liquid, tablets and liquidtabs, this review is based on Bold 2in1 crystal rain and white lily powder.
Bold comes in different size boxes depending on the one you buy. I bought a 25 wash box from B&M Bargains for £3.99, about 1/2 the price of the supermarkets, hee hee!!
My bold comes in a blue box with the familiar Bold logo in the middle in orange. 2in1 comes underneath and a circle with 3/4 of the circle dark blue and the other 1/4 a light blue to represent detergent and softener. On the side around the circle is a statement 'Detergent + Fabric Softener so you know it is a 2in1. On the top of the box is '12 hours of wear clean and fresh feeling' and this statement is very true. Underneath the Bold logo is the fragrance (crystal rain and white lily) and on the side where the fragrance is, it has a picture to represent it. So on crystal rain and white lily` the crystal rain side has well, crystal rain and white lily on the other side. I've also ogt the coupons off your next purchase when you spend £10 or more on Proctor & Gamble products, either shampoo or cleaning.
Bold say to first check your water, wether it is hard, medium or soft and then you know how much you need to use. Then Bold say to sort your washing to the colour (whites, lights, brights and darks) and by the items care label. That is how you keep your clothes looking your best. Now I will give you the dosing instructions (based on loads 5-6kg.
HARD WATER MEDIUM WATER SOFT WATER
NORMAL SOIL 165ML '''130ML''' 95ML
HEAVY SOIL 230ML 195ML 160ML
For tough stains add an extra 70ml and for pre washing at 75ml into the pre-wash compartment. For extra burst of freshness at extra 75ml. people who have washing machines which are large (launderette size, 7kg+) add an extra 40ml to the recommended dose. For handwashing dissolve 20ml of powder per 5ltr of water.
'''MY THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCES'''
The powder itself is white with little blue and red specks scatterd across it. No scoop is supplied but I have plenty (two P&G ones and two persil ones!!) so that dose'nt bother me!! The smell of the powder is a pelasant one and is nice after the wash too. I had a load of bedding to go on (light coloured bedding) and decided to put Bold to the test... Bold claims to work on temperatures, at 20c, 30c, 40c, 60c and 95c. I used 135ml because I have soft water and I also have a 7kg washing machine so measured accurately for the sake of this review. Now after I loaded it up, I set my machine to a quick wash cycle (I only use that cycle) and pressed go...
During the cycle some foam came up from the bottom of the drum when the machine started washing but this dissapeared during the rinses...
When the wash finished I hung out the washing to dry and when it was dry it smelt terrific! Nice and soft too! But I also found it smelt better and felt softer when using a tumble dryer, but you do notice that with any detergent but usually the smell dissapears, but not with bold!!
Having a look on the side of the box I found Bold contains a water softener, so no need for Calgon!! Also a website is available if you want a free scoop or liquid ball or other laundry tips, visit www.bold2in1.co.uk.
In my opinion this Bold 2in1 powder does great!! It saves you money without having to purchase a softener or even water softener!! It smells great and cleans very well!!
A LOT BETTER THAN ANY OTHER 2IN1 POWDER ;-)
THANKS FOR READING! :)
HAPPY WASHING!! :O)
Summary: A good 2in1 money saving powder!!
