“ Brand: Comfort / Type: Fabric Softener / Category: Laundry „
I have been using Comfort fabric conditioner for quite a few number of years now as I like the way it cares for my clothes and the way it makes them smell and freshens them. Comfort was the first fabric conditioner to launch in the UK and according to their website it has a lot of benefits including leaving your clothes felling soft and gentle on your skin.
I first began to use Comfort before my first baby was born because, from looking at the front of the bottle which has the picture of a baby all snuggled up in their blanket it seemed like it was perfect for babies. On further research back at that time, "According to the baby website Bounty, Comfort Pure fabric conditioner is designed for babies' sensitive skin. It is dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. Plus, its skincare research is validated by the British Skin Foundation and it's the only fabric softener working with the National Childbirth Trust. "
I have tried various smells and fragrances in the Comfort range which are great for my clothes and my husbands clothes but when it comes to the kids clothes I like more of a natural fresh fragrance and this naturals aloe smell is great for them. I like the way aloe vera works on my skin as a cream and moisturiser so I thought it would probably be great as a fabric softener too. The conditioner is a light green colour as you would expect form an aloe based product and has quite a fresh, delicate smell to it. The concentrate works by softening scratchy fibres to help prevent irritation. It says if you don't use fabric softener then fibres on your clothes will go scratchy. I definitely finds that it makes my baby clothes and the clothes for my little girl nice and soft and you do not get that cardboard feel when you do not use conditioner. The clothes smell nice and fresh after washing and do not irritate their soon which is definitely a plus for me. On the bottle it also says that by using this fabric conditioner it will make ironing easier and I think it probably has, I do not need to take ages to iron their clothes, I just quickly whip the iron across them and they look pretty good.
This liquid is a concentrate so it uses 50% less packaging and means it is better for the environment. The bottle is also plastic and has a recycle sign on it so another way in which it is good for the environment. The bottle is quite small, only 750ml and it says it will work for 21 washes. They estimate this by saying that if you use just a capful that is enough for your wash. I actually find that I have got a lot more washes out of it than this so that's quite good.
There is a new Pound shop opened up near to where I stay and it seems to be focusing more on branded products at the moment but who knows if that will last. This product i'm sure is still available in Supermarkets as well but it will cost more than £1.
This comes in a 750ml bottle and is a concentrate so you don't need all too much for a load of washing. According to the back of this bottle this will do an average of 21 washes and that is based on 1 capful per wash. On the back of the bottle it states the amount that you use per load and you can use a Capful for less than 1 load if you want extra Softness. I've never counted how many capfuls this does but I would image it was probably accurate in the average. I know you got this in a 1.5 litre bottle too but can't say if that is stil available - if that size had been available in my Pound shop that would have been even better obviously!!
The bottle looks alright. There is a slight shape to the bottle and since the bottle is clear then you can see the light green colour of the liquid easy enough. Weather that is to tie in with the Aloe scent as I know that genereally is green.
Just use this in the usual way that you would use Softener - measure this out and pour this into the drawer in you washer.
There isn't too much scent from this. It is just a light fresh scent. It doesn't smell too much of anyway there is a slight perhaps leafy, green scent but overall this is just a crisp fresh scent. Although the strenght of this does fade after your clothes are washed and dried you can still smell this slightly.
This is a good Softener. This is a good Softener especially if you have to watch what you use on your skin if you have sensitive skin as it is kind to your skin.
I have used this before I bought this recently and I will continue to use this now and again for a change.
Doing the laundry is not exactly an exciting task, but there are certain things which can make it that little bit more enjoyable. For me, it's all about the different scents. I love using scented ironing water and choosing a new fabric conditioner can be just as fun as choosing a new perfume, and it's a lot cheaper! Comfort is a brand that I tend to favour for the simple reason of my mum always used to use it when I lived at home. I've used Comfort products for years since moving out on my own, and like to try out all the different varieties. I went for this Comfort Concentrate with aloe vera extract because I liked the sound of the Naturals range.
Comfort Concentrated Fabric Conditioner can be bought from most good supermarkets and many high street discount stores. I get mine from Tesco's along with the rest of my usual grocery shopping, and this comes in a choice of two different bottle sizes. The 750ml bottle cost £1.50 and the 1.5litre bottle is currently on special offer at £2.00, which is a really good price.
Product description: "Comfort Naturals blended with aloe vera, nature's best known moisturising and soothing ingredient. Just one cap is more than enough to leave clothes naturally fresh, whilst still being kind and gentle on your skin. Dermatologically tested."
This fabric conditioner comes in an ordinary plastic bottle that has a screw top plastic lid. The bottle itself is clear which allows you to easily see how much is left, as the liquid inside has a fresh green colour to it. The lid also works as a measuring device for dispensing the correct amount of fabric conditioner per wash. This is very handy, and it has a neat little lip inside the lid so that any drips or spills get caught and end up back in the bottle rather than all over the floor.
These days I always prefer to go for the more environmentally friendly products, and this concentrated fabric conditioner certainly fits the bill. Comfort Concentrate uses over 50% less packaging per wash compared to Comfort Regular, so not only are your clothes left feeling soft and smelling fresh, you're helping to care for the environment as well. This essentially means that less plastic is required for packaging and fewer lorries are required for transporting larger products.

Directions for use: For large loads or extra softness and freshness, 6-7kg = 55ml full cap. For normal loads, 4-5kg = 35ml, just over half full cap. For hand washing, 10L =18ml, a third of a cap. To Use: Dose straight into your washing machine drawer. Wash hands after use. Do not pour directly onto fabrics. Keep away from eyes. If product gets into eyes rinse thoroughly with water.
This is very simple to use, just stick it into the fabric conditioner section of the washing machine's drawer and away you go. Because it is a concentrated liquid you don't need to use a great deal of it per wash, and so the bottle can last for ages. The fragrance of this one is quite fresh and clean, and fits in with the Natural theme as it is not overpowering or synthetic. This concentrated conditioner has a soothing fragrance blended with aloe vera extract. The scent does not really stand out that much but it does give my washing a lovely boost of freshness that helps reinforce the feeling that they have been well cleaned and conditioned. This also means that it's great for those with sensitive skin as it will not cause irritation or bad reactions to contact with the skin, and the product has been approved by the British Skin Foundation.
I paid £2.00 for my large 1.5litre bottle of Comfort Concentrate fabric Conditioner, and it states on the bottle that this amount provides 42 washes. Seeing as I do only one or two loads of laundry per week, this size of bottle lasts me absolutely ages, and I only have to buy this type of product a few times a year. I think it is incredibly good value for money and does a wonderful job of refreshing and caring for my clothes. I would recommend this fabric conditioner to anyone and give it a well deserved 5 stars.
