Advantages: Cheap and cheerful!
Disadvantages: Don't bring up things as shiny as I'd like them to be
Staying with my friend at the moment I now have first hand of using a dishwasher on a daily basis! Actually I'm so addicted to it now that I have it on 2/3 times a day due to all the mess me and her four dogs make and can't imagine going back to where I normally live and not having a dishwasher again!
However the one thing about this new addiction is how much dishwasher tablets can set you back financially! We used Fairy for a while and whilst I liked them they didn't half work out expensive. Now we use 'Finish' (which we picked up at a pound a box in Asda as they are currently on offer) and have a supply of these too which we use as well.
These Daisy one's are Tesco's own branded one's and my mate paid £4.08 for a box of 40 which is really good value when you compare prices to other dishwasher tablets that are on the market!
Oblongish cardboard dark blue box and the front there is a picture of a daisy and of one of the tablets. We are told that they are Daisy 'Classic dishwasher tablets 5 in 1 action' and that they are a discount brand from Tesco and there are of course 40 tablets in the box. Other information given on the box includes directions for use, ingredients and warnings and contact details for Tesco are all listed. It's a very informative box that is nicely laid out and inside the box each tablet is individually wrapped in clear plastic wrappers that are easy to split open.
The tablets are quite thick oblong solid powders. A light yellow to the underside of the tablet and a light green to the top they have a soapy but light smell to them when you first open one up to place it n the dispenser of your dishwasher. Your then left to select the programme you want and away you go just leave them to do their magic!
A really good dishwasher tablet. We always rinse out our really filthy washing up first and we find these to do a great job at cleaning off debris and cutting through grease and grime with ease. We always make sure we choose a long and hot cycle anyway to make sure everything is well sanitised and we have no complaints about these really. I would say that the washing up, particularly glass doesn't come out as shiny as when using say Fairy or Finish tablets but then you are paying out a whole lot more pennies for those to be fair. These don't leave taste or residue on washing up and all round for everyday use I think they're an excellent choice!
Only available in Tesco stores.
Summary: A decent economy product!
