Challs Bin Buddy
Advantages: Nice smell, insecticide, price
Disadvantages: Smell a little artificial but I don't actually mind it
I love to try new products that keep our home smelling good, especially in the summer months when the increased temperature can make the bins and drains not smell their freshest! It's only recently that I have become aware of the Bin Buddy range and I have become a big fan since I first started using them.
This particular product is aimed specifically at wheelie bins. I used to be of the opinion that cleaning or taking care of your wheelie bin is a waste of time and money as its outside of your house, however with councils facing budget cuts and regular strikes affecting our bin collection services (Brighton springs to mind!) I think it has become quite important to take care of your wheelie bin and avoid those awful smells that hit you when you open the lid.
The bin buddy also works to repel and kill insects and flies. The bin buddy comes in two scents (berry blast and citrus), both pleasant (although rather artificial smelling), however my personal preference is the Berry Blast scent. The natural insecticide is non harmful to the environment, us and pets, so you do not need to worry about any harmful chemicals coming into contact with you or your family.
The container that this product comes in is brilliant. Shaped like a mini wheelie bin, complete with wheels, the product is certainly eye catching. It holds around 15 applications inside the tub, and when you only need to use this once a week it will last a long time for only a small investment of around £4 - £5 dependent on where you buy it from.
Dependant on how you use your wheelie bin will be dependent on how often you need to use this product. I use quite strong bin bags and don't put that much food waste inside my bin, so I find that using this product once a week after my bin has been emptied will provide sufficient fragrance and insecticide until it is emptied again. To use, you simply shake the corse powder into the bin and leave it to work its magic!
I would definitely recommend this product and will continue to use it and others within the range. For a small price you can avoid those nasty smells and put your rubbish out with pride!
Summary: 5 stars
