      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Really great detergent

      I am hooked on Daz at the moment. Partly because there was an offer on the liquid tablets in the supermarket and so i stocked up. But when the offer was over, I did not desert my trusted Daz. The Daz complete with Dyelock really is a great product.

      I have used a whole box of them and so can confidently write this review. Every single wash has been outstanding. The whites in the clothes really to shine brightly, especially if you hang them on the line in the sun after washing. The colours stay vibrant and do not run or fade.

      Best of all is the lovely fresh smell that really lingers after the clothes are dry. I have started to turn the washing machine down to 30 degrees but ever since doing this I have found that the clothes do not come out smelling as fresh. I'm not sure why this is. However, with the Daz with dyelock, not only do they smell fresh when they come out but that freshness stays once they are dry and put away.

      This is a great tried and trusted product

      Daz with Dyelock is an excellent product. I have used Daz for years and have always been really pleased with the results.

      The fragrance is not overpowering and everything smells fresh, as though it has been line-dried even when I have had to dry clothes indoors.

      It is less expensive than a lot of the more popular detergents but that does not mean that the quality is compromised, just that if offers excellent value for money.

      Of course, what really counts are the results and these are excellent with every wash. The 'Dyelock' ensures that colours remain bright and fresh with no fading, no matter how many times an item has been laundered. The whites are simply amazing - as the advert used to say 'almost a blue white'. You will not be disappointed with Daz.

      Daz is a tried and trusted name in the world of detergents and has its reputation to keep so I cannot imagine a time when the quality of their products is anything short of amazing.

      All in all, this is a product that I thoroughly recommend.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I am a big fan of Julian Clary, but unfortunately he couldn't sell me Daz wasing powder. I tried out Daz washing powder, mainly because of the adverts. But it wasn't for me. The packaging was very distinctive. a Big red box with the writing in dark blue. But I wasn't after the packaging I was more interested in the contents. The price was pretty reasonable for £3.58 I got a 2.2kg box. which claims to do 30 washes. At about 11p a wash I thought it was an excellent deal. Daz does have biological action with dyelock plus which stops the colours running onto any white part of a garment. Yes I will give credit where credit is due, none of my colours ran. You can use it from temperatures 30 degrees up to 95 degrees. which is great if you want to do a hard wash on cottons etc. You can either put it in the drawer of your machine or use a dosing device and put it in your drum. You use the amount of powder according to soilage. It is made by procter and gamble, which is a well recognised name, so I did have faith in their product. There are a lot of ingredients which go into washing powder so may I suggest you contact the address below for more info. Proctor and Gamble UK The heights Brooklands Weybridge Surrey KT13 OXP My children aren't babies anymore, so it is not like I have really soiled washing. My daughter showers every morning (so she hasn't got a dirty neck) She wears a white blouse to school and puts a fresh one on every day, but as we know collars get dirty quick. Did the Daz get the mark out of the collar NO. It took some of the mark out, but, it still looked grubby. In fact Daz did only fade the stains not completely remove them. Tea/coffee/ stains etc. I do know you should soak stains in cold water first, which I usually do, but I have used other powders that got the stains out without soaking. When I do use wasing powde
      r I don't skimp on it, so I can't blame myself and say I didn't use enough. The smell of the clothes when they were washed was quite pleasant, fresh smelling. I don't use fabric conditioners as I have sensetive skin and they irritate me. But i find my clothes come out fairly softish. Not with Daz they were really rough and prickly. Daz also really did irritate my skin, especially on my tender bits. It brought me out in a rash which itched like mad. It made my husband have a sore bum after washing his underpants in it. As soon as I stopped using it our problems cleared up. So in the end I reverted back to Persil a little bit more expensive at £4.19 it works out at about 14p a wash.3p dearer than daz but I would rather pay that little bit extra and get cleaner clothes and no irritation.

        Disadvantages

        Are you fed up of taking your what were once whites out of your washing machine, to find them a dingy colour of grey? If you are then I highly recommend Daz. Being an advertisers dream I have tried numerous other powders on the market, but I always go back to my tried and trusted Daz. You can wash your clothes on 40 degrees, and yet they still come out white. Daz has also recently improved the performance of their powder. They have added something which enables you to wash all those nightmare white clothes. You know the sort of thing, White T-shirts with a red logo, white socks with pink lace etc. I’m not sure how long Daz has been around, but I started using it because of my Nan. That was about 12 years ago. Over that time, it has been reliable and cheap. You can get Daz virtually anywhere nowadays, from your highstreet supermarket to your local shop. Daz is extremely cost effect. Priced at around £2.40 a small box. You can get roughly 10 washes from this sized box. If however you are constantly using your washing machine, Daz also do larger boxes. You can also buy liquids and tablet forms. Personally I prefer the powder. Daz also do handwash powder so they cater for most jobs. Procter & Gamble make Daz. If you want you can also log onto their web site at www.dazdogs.co.uk or www.dazwhite.co.uk

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Daz has been around for years, and has to be one of the most cheapest washing powders on the market - considering the price some of them cost nowadays! I paid £1.69 for a 1.215 kg box, and does seem to last me a good while. Bought in all stores and shops, it's easily accessible, and not too expensive. It's suitable for all types for washing. I only put a normal scoopful of washing powder into the drawer, and find this suitable to get a good wash. It dissolves easily and quickly, and doesn't leave any residue or marks of any kind on your linen. It says it contains *dyelock*. Dyelock is an ingredient which helps to protect the white on your coloured garments from getting stained. Although it does state that some garments may contain excess dye that may still run. The odour of the washing powder is fresh, and not too strong. After the wash, the odour does seem to stay o the clothes for a good while after as well. It's really refreshing, and has that outdoor country kind of freshness to it. Made by Procter & Gamble, I think this is their best washing powder out of all of them! On the side of the box, it states how much washing powder to use on how soiled your clothes are. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ PROCTER & GAMBLE UK, The Heights, Brooklands, WEYBRIDGE, Surrey, KT13 0XP Tel: 0800 085 2592 (UK) 1800 509 083 (Repulic of Ireland) Write call call them at the above for any information. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Well, I love this washing powder.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Daz has been my favoured washing powder for years and years. My mum started using Daz when the washing machine repairman recommended it (he wasn't sponsered by Daz!!). He said that it dissolved really well, didn't clog up the machine and was one of the best powders to use. He was right! Now that I don't live with my parents anymore (agh - I have to do lots of housework now!!!!) I chose to stick with Daz. Both me and my other half are sensitive to other washing powders - we have no problems with Daz. I find that the smell left on the clothes is pleasant without being too false or strong. Like the trusty washing machine man said, the powder dissolves really well, you can see this when you need to do a cold handwash for delicates, it completely dissolves in barely warm water. This is good news if you use cold machine washes or low temperature washes on your machine like I do. You know for sure that your washing machine won't be left with powder blocking it up. With Daz my clothes are left smelling lovely, it cleans really well and is very reasonably priced. Also, stains nearly always come out. I also find that I don't need to use fabric conditioner as my washes come out soft. I do on average one wash every 2nd day and one packet of Daz lasts me over 2 months. (remember not to use too much powder - you don't need tons)

            Well good old Daz has been around for many years and I have been using it for about 10 years. It's now called Daz Complete with Dyelock (whatever that is!). I do soemtimes buy other washing powders or tablets if something is on special offer but always come bacjk to good old Daz. It gives all round good results with the whites being "dazzling" white and the coloureds remaing bright. Even before the addition of Dyelock which I presume is to help stop colours running,I never had a problem with this though I am careful about my washing loads. Some powders have a really strong smell to them which personally, I find a bit overpowering. Daz has a pleasant smell but doesn't leave the clothes reeking of washing powder. Price wise, Daz is a little cheaper than some of the other powders. It also comes in tablet form which I didn't like so much as the washing results did not seem as good.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I bought Daz washing tablets on a rare trip to Safeways because they were £2.56 on special offer. I normaly use Persil or Ariel tablets. I was very suprised with the results. The clothes realy did have a wonderful smell that lingered for days. The tablets completely dissolved without leving any powder marks. The box contains 28 tablets enough for 14 washes, at the price I paid that represents very good value. I have found Ariel tablets sometimes crumble in the packaging making them messy to use, & they don't always disolve properly leaving marks on the laundry. I now see no point in buying the expensive variety anymore when Daz does such a good job at a much cheaper price. I have been converted!
