Advantages: Cheap but effective.
Daisy washing powder,
I was trying to save some money and spotted this daisy washing powder which is for coloured clothing.
I brought it from Tescos store and mainly choose it because it was less than three pounds and being on a budget I wanted to save some pennies.
Ive never tried this soap powder before and being a step up from tescos cheap brand and the next brand in the price list I decided to but one and give it a try.
It comes in a strong hard carboard box and you have a strip openning across the top of the boc which is you pull opens all around the top of the box so that the box opens and lifts up, you dont get a cup dispenser inside this box unfortunately, but i have an old plastic cup that I keep inside the box and scoop out approximately half a cup full per wash load of coloured clothing and add this to my automatic washing machine.
What I noticed was the really lovely smell that comes out of the box when you are scooping out the washing powder and it seems to larther up well and has a few bubbles in the washing machine.
Well i was rather suprised because all of the clothing so far that I have washed has been really clean and any stains that I have had have disapeared, this I am suprised at for a cheap washing powder, I did try tescos value brand and this was not the case so for a cheaper washing powder I am more than happy with the results it had on my washing. I did not notice any rashes or problems this had on my skin and had washed my bedding in it and that was ok im pleased to say too.
You get 30 washed to the box whether this is true I cant say as im afraid I dont tend to count how many wash loads I get per box, but know that I only use half a cup full of this powder and ive had my box for quite a few weeks now so am more than happy not only with the amount of washed im getting but also the performance that it has on cleaning my clothes and I shall stick with buying this washing powder for a while as ive saved a few pennies on my usual brand.
This is specially designed with colours in mind, they do also produce a washing powder for biological washing.
Keep out of sight and reach of small children.
Avoid contact with your eyes.
In case of contact with eyes rinse immediately and seek medical advice.
Rinse and dry hands well after contact with this product.
People with sensative and damaged skin should obviously avoid prolonged contact with this powder.
They do have a promise on the back of the box that states "we are happy to refund or replace any tesco product that falls below the high standard you would expect and they do give you a telephone number you can call which is a freephone one.
The box contains 2.4 kgs.
The box is recyclable.
Suitable for all colours and general machine washing.
Clothes with flame or water resistant finishes probably need a specialist washing powder.
Store in a cool dry place, i keep mine in my broom cupboard.
6-7 kgs of washing...add if soft water 60mls of powder for lightly soiled.
...if medium water. 85mls of powder for medium soiled.
...if hard water. 120mls of powder for heavy soiled.
Handwashing: dissolve 80mls of powder into 10 litres of water.
Prewash: add 60mls of powder for a prewash cycle.
You will be pleased to note that this product has not been tested on animals by or for Tescos.
This is not a bad washing powder and i would recommend if you are trying to save money then this is just a step up from the value brands and does take stains out of your clothing.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.
Summary: I will buy this again.
