Daz Mandarin & Lime Splash Washing Powder
Advantages: Cleans well, smells fantastic - excellent product!
Disadvantages: Conditioner not built in (as a comparison to my usual product)
I recently agreed to trial this product, and wanted to share my experience on here too.
Free (I have been trialling this) but understand it may be available for around £4.50 for this sized pack (25 washes).

*PACKAGING / BOX*
The box is a standard Daz box which is opened from the top by pulling the cardboard (like a ringpull, but sideways) and then pulling this around the box until three sides have been undone, meaning the top can be opened as a lid. There was also a scoop enclosed which helps measure the dosage correctly and cleanly.
As soon as I opened this, I was pleasantly surprised at how intense the scent emanating from the box was. Even from around our laundry room, and with the box almost empty, the scent flows gently and omits a feeling of freshness which is very welcoming.
*SMELL / SCENT*
The smell is not specifically mandarin nor lime in my opinion - but it is strong and tangy. Having said that, it is not so much so that it becomes annoying or smells off-putting. There is a freshness to the scent which stays with the clothes while they are drying and during wear too.
I noticed the excellence of the cleaning results when using this for handwashing purposes. I left my items to soak for around twenty minutes, and when I returned to them and began washing them, I noticed that the dirt was just lifting away. It was astonishing - even more so because the temperature of the water used was not too high.
This led me to believe that this washing machine must be producing far better results that my previous powder (Bold 2in1 - in all varieties).
When using this powder in place of my usual detergent, I was pleased with the results. I found that there were no patches left on the clothes, the smell was fantastic (and stayed after drying and ironing), and felt clean - especially after I had seen the handwashing results.
*COMPARISON TO USUAL DETERGENT*
I usually use detergent from the Bold 2in1 range as I love the scent of most of their powders, and they do clean well enough - but I must admit, this one made me realise that perhaps sticking with the same brand year in year out (other than a change of scent) is something I should look further into because cleaning with this Daz product seems more effortless, with better and cleaner results.
Pricewise it fares better than the Bold too, but that could be because Daz do not build a conditioner into their product.
I have since purchased a smaller box of this Daz product. We do not handwash often, but it is definitely the one I will reach for to satisfy this washing need. Once I saw how clean the handwashed products were, it made me appreciate just how clean the clothes must be from the washing machine.
We still have some of the Bold 2in1 remaining, and although the trial I agreed to conduct finished some time ago, this is still the product I and my family have been using above the other one - so I shall be purchasing more of it for the whole family to use. It really is a fantastic product (in my opinion).
