Comfort Refresh is another fantastic product from those great manufacturers of cleaning products, Lever Brothers Ltd. They may well be accused of introducing new products into the marketplace too often, but to my mind, if they're as good as this, then long may there be new products sold by them. The product is sold in two sizes, a handy 100 ml bottle, perfect for travel, and a 300 ml bottle. Generally the smaller is £0.98 and the larger £1.98 (well at least where i shop it is!) This isn't at all overpriced, as it appears to last forever, no matter how much you use it! They state on the bottle that it is a ' fabric refresher spray. Neutralises odours, leaving behind the 'just-washed' freshness of Comfort'. This is a very true to the product description. I love the smell of most Comfort Products(sad i know!!), so i love the smell of my clothes after i've sprayed them. The spray is great for re-invigorating (is that the right adjective for this?!) clothes that have been washed, but not worn for a while, and clothes that are not at their best! For the smokers among us, it is just a dream product, it removes this smell that invades all clothes. Obviously this can't be used as a substitute for actually regularly washing clothes, but in this climate of busy lives( well thats my excuse!) it is a great little product to have to hand when you find that you've forgotten to wash something you need. It hasn't yet left any noticeable marks on any of my clothes. My wife, initially very sceptical about it, has now taken to using it too, so that must be a recommendation! There are various items that it can't be applied to : leather and suede, and silk. But otherwise, assumimg you like the smell of Comfort, i know lots of people that don't, then Comfort Refresh is an inexpensive quality fabric refresher.Go get some and smell the difference!(sorry, very cheesy, i'll stop here!)
Comfort (or more precisely, Lever Brothers) seem to be going overboard in launching new products, all aimed at keeping clothes fresh and smelling nice, with the added benefit of making them easier to iron. But, have they gone too far? Do we really need all these products? I must admit that I like to try new things as they are launched, but looking in my cupboards I wonder if I really need them all. So what’s available? FABRIC CONDITIONER - normal strength, concentrated, “easy iron”, with a variety of fragrances. The main purpose of fabric conditioner is to make clothes softer and easier to iron (and keep them smelling fresh). I would agree with this claim. On the odd occasion when I have forgotten to add fabric softener, my clothes have felt like cardboard! However, I am not sure that the “easy iron” version makes clothes easier to iron than the “normal” range. TUMBLE DRYER SHEETS If you are tumble drying clothes it is recommended that you use the sheets instead of adding fabric conditioner to the wash. Sometimes when I put a load of washing in, I am not sure how I will be drying it, so I end up using both fabric conditioner and a sheet. More profits for Lever Brothers! Again, I am convinced these sheets work, and I like the feel of the clothes when they’ve been tumble dried. They are certainly much easier to iron, but a lot of this has to do with the tumble drier. SACHETS FOR YOUR WARDROBE/DRAWERS This is a fairly recent addition to the comfort range, and claims to keep your clothes fresh for up to 6 weeks. They are sold in packs of 3 in most supermarkets. You simply hang the sachet in your wardrobe (using the ribbon provided) or place it in a drawer amongst your clothes. I have been using these for around 6 weeks now, and find they still have some smell left. I have not used them in drawers, and have hung them so they are not touching any of my fabr
ics - just in case! LIQUID TO ADD TO YOUR IRON This is the latest addition that I have seen advertised recently. I must confess that I have not bought this product - I feel I am doing my bit for Lever Brothers already. I also have some concerns about putting more chemicals on my clothes, and wonder about the long term effects. CONCLUSION All in all, I think that the Comfort range offers a variety of products that do what they claim to do. However, I have reached the stage where I don’t want my clothes to mask my perfume, so will be limiting my use to what I consider essential. Fortunately I don’t have any allergies, but I do wonder whether these products will be aggravating skin complaints, particularly those of children.
I've been meaning to write about this stuff ever since I first tried it a few months ago - it actually works! Despite my usual dislike of this kind of product, it was a case of necessity if not desperation. I sing professionally, glittery frock and all, and had discovered said glittery frock shrinks at an uneven rate even when hand-washed as required, leaving the lining hanging lower than the glittery bits...(not a pretty sight) What, I hear you ask, has my glittery frock to do with Refresh? Well, what with the incredible shrinking frock and my sadly-not-equally-shrinking waistline, I was far from keen to wash the glittery item again in a hurry. It's not a favourite item of clothing (more of a GAP girl myself!) and was about to be upgraded anyway, so I figured a quick spray of Refresh might get me through just one more performance if I was lucky.... Not daring to hope for too much, but keen not to have to wash the dress again, I sprayed on Refresh....magic! The dress smelled as if it had just been washed! Refresh genuinely does give garments that just-washed smell...it even seems to work on clothes worn in a smoky environment that I usually would have had to wash immediately after just a couple of hours' wear. I'm impressed, although it can leave a slight powdery finish which will brush off. I imagine this product would be a dream-come-true for those stereotypical (male?!) students who rarely wash their clothes....a quick spray and that's it - you're ready for a night on the town and to convince an unsuspecting female that that shirt has just come out of the tumble dryer... Do these student-types really exist? Well I've had a couple of them as lodgers!! Maybe I'll leave a bottle of this in the room... Oh, and as for the glittery frock - I'm not 100% sure that the Refresh spray wasn't behind the moulting of a couple of sequins, but as most of my clothes ar
e 100% sequin-free that's not something I'll be losing sleep over!
I recently purchased a small bottle of comfort Refresh. It does exactly what it say's. For a 100ml size it will set you back 99p which isn't too bad as one squirt is all you need from this. It is very handy when you have hung clothes up in the wardrobe and want to put a bit of zest back into them instead of that wardrobey smell that omits from them sometimes. I always use Lenor which keeps my clothes smelling lovely but i am such a fanatic when it comes to smells that i absolutely adore this product. Another thing that refresh is great for is when you are ironing it is handy to spray your towels and especially your babies vests ( if you have a baby that is) they smell lovely afterwards. I also squirt it in hubby's trainers but alas it is no miracle worker.
COMFORT REFRESH This is a really nice idea from Comfort, it is a fabric refresher spray, which removes the smell of smoke, cooking odours or musty storage smells. I bought this really just to try, I bought the trial spray, which is in a 100ml bottle, you spray it onto your clothes for that just washed smell. I found this brilliant on clothes that I hadn’t worn for a few weeks, and have lost that fresh smell, although they have been washed. The only disadvantage is when you first spray it, your clothes feel quite wet from the particles of spray, which does dry in, so I would suggest using it about thirty minutes before you need to wear your clothes. It also smells quite strong when you first apply it, but this only lasts for about forty minutes, then the smell dies down a bit. This must not be used on leather or suede, or fabrics which may waterspot (e.g. silk), but is brilliant if you need an item of clothing in a hurry. I bought mine from Asda, but I am sure you can buy it from almost anywhere, I can’t quite remember how much it cost exactly, but I think it was between ninety pence and a pound.
