==Daz Summer Flower Power concentrated laundry liquid==
As Daz is the more preferred detergent for me as it is cheaper than brands such as Persil or Ariel & it cleans just as well (if not better) too. So when a while back I saw the Daz liquid range for £2 in ASDA, I just had to have it! I had a good sniff in the store but found that they only had my preferred fragrance Mandarin & Lime splash, in the 27 wash pack in which was not on offer. I then chose Summer Flower Power, which smelt nice of Flowers.
Daz liquid recently changed to a concentrated liquid which means less is needed for each wash. Only 1 capful is needed for 1 wash making it an equivalent to Persil small & mighty. It is available in a 20 wash pack & a 27 wash pack. The 20 wash is 918ml & the 27 wash is 1.2ltr. They are available in 3 fragrances: Mandarin & Lime Splash, Summer Flower Power & Violet Blossom Blast. All 3 fragrances smell divine & are great for when using fabric conditioner too!
My Daz liquid (Summer Flower Power) comes in a bright yellow bottle which holds 918ml of pearly orange liquid. The slogan: Our cleaning never smelled soooo good! is listed in green along with the Daz logo which is surounded by a vast array of flowers. A little box with 1 cap, 1 wash listed in it. The side bottle has a clear strip which shows the clear liquid being run down the side of the bottle. This is handy because your then able to see how much you have left & even if you were supisticous about how much you use this will be good for you! The back of the bottle has the other varieties available along with the all important dosing instructions.
Daz liquid is good for colours because it dosent have a single bleach ingredient in it unlike powder, so sometimes people recommend powder for the best whites as if you use liquid your whites can look off white. It's also good for pre-treating stains as you can pour neat liquid onto the stain, rub it in & wash!
Normal & Light soil Dosing:
Soft & Meduim water: 1 full cap (44ml)
Hard Water: 1 1/2 caps (66ml)
Heavy Soil (all water hardnesses): 1 1/2 caps (66ml)
7kg+ loads: 1 1/2 caps (66ml)
Handwash (10ltr of water): 1 cap (44ml)
You can even use this in a dosing ball (not supplied) but for one visit the Daz website (www.dazwhite.co.uk). I have used a dosing ball a few times as an alternative to using it in the drawer.
I put a wash load on the next day after purchasing using this liquid & it performed quite well to be honest. I put a load of coloureds on & used 1 capful of Daz liquid in the dosing ball in the drum. As soon as I opened the bottle, the most gorgeous smell of summer flowers hit me. It was quite delicate but powerful. I was hoping the smell would stay on the clothes after washing them (especially the smaller items!)
It was soon time for the machine to stop filling & start tumbling. It soon did, but even 10 minutes into the wash, no foam appeared at all! I was not happy, but most liquids are like this, some do make some foam but as I normally use powders i'm used to foam appearing so it was quite a shock to me!
Soon the wash came to the end & I took the clothes out of the washer & I instantly detected a smell of summer flowers on the smaller items such as socks & underwear (as there were a LOT of those let me assure you!) & it instantly blended well with the fresh scent of the smell of Lenor Summer Breeze.
I have used this for handwashing too & it is great because it dissolves quickly & only needs 1 rinse to get out unlike powder which needs at least 2! I have used it for handwashing normal clothes, delicates & even shoes & it performs well on these!
Ever since I have brought this I have used the whole bottle for washing everything! I had used it for even washing shoes & it left them smelling fresh & looking clean! It's a bit like P&G's answer to Persil or Surf small & mighty! With the 3 fragrances available, different sizes & lots of functions, this is one laundry detergent worth buying!
(: Thanks for reading! :)
Summary: A good liquid at a GREAT price!!
