Daz Summer Flower Power
Advantages: Cleans and leaves clothes smelling beautiful.
Disadvantages: Doesn't always get rid of grease stains first time.
When shopping for washing detergent I tend to go towards the branded ones on offer, rather than sticking to one particular brand, with me finding that no one brand offers better cleaning than the other.
After perusing the washing detergent section for any bargains to be had, I found the product I will now review for you at a real price reduction!
The product in question is - "Daz - summer flower power liquid detergent".
As I said the first reason for throwing this in my trolley is the fact this was on offer for £3.00, which for a 27 (approx) wash bottle is fantastic value!
The bottle itself is a large squarish bottle, with a small white screw lid, with the lid doubling up as the dosing cup too!
There is all the relevant information on the bottle, brand name, product name, scent and dosing information, with here being much more detailed information on the back, along with a full ingredients list.
To use you simply fill the cap to the relevant line, half full for slightly soiled and nearly to the top for heavily soiled, then pour into the dosing draw.
The detergent is a runny yellow liquid that has a lovely fresh floral scent to it.
I filled my washing machine up and started pouring the detergent from the bottle into the dosing cap, I tend to be quite heavy handed and usually in a rush, so I found I poured it a bit quick, though luckily due to the design of the bottle itself I found it difficult to spill any, with there being an applicator channel within the bottle end.
I poured the ¾ full cap into the machine and re-attached the lid to the bottle, again specially designed so that any liquid left in the lid (and there always is as the viscous liquid tends to cling in the bottom of the cap!), runs back into the bottle for future use through a specially designed channel running around the lid of the bottle. This obviously saves product for use later, but stops the dosing cap and top of the bottle relatively clean and gunk free, though not completely!
After my washing has finished (I always wash at 40 degrees, for 1 hour, dirty kids!), I pull my washing out to find it lovely clean and smelling beautifully, a thing that again stays even when the washing is dry!
This liquid I have found tackles most stains, but does really struggle with grease marks, which unfortunately is one of the most common stains on my clothing, cooking is not my strong point!
The detergent doesn't tend to remove the grease with the first wash, but does after two or three washes.
I actually quite liked this detergent, not only is it reliable (even with grease stains, eventually!), it is super concentrated meaning it takes up less room in the cupboard!
Due to the nature of the gel it also reduces down the need to keep washing out the draw, as you know with powder it will eventually clog up and start to go mildewy, this gel goes straight in and washes entirely out again, leaving behind very little residue to need to clean, which is fantastic, I feel I do more than enough cleaning!
Quantity wise, the bottle states that you should get approximately 27 washes from this bottle, though I have found you can eek this out a little by using just less than the recommended dose, this in no way impedes the cleaning ability and does get a bit more for your money, as at full price these are available for around the £5.00 mark.

This really is a lovely detergent that cleans almost everything first time, leaves a beautiful scent on the clothes when wet and dried, and for the price I paid, is fantastic value, recommended!
