Daz Summer Flower Power
Advantages: Smells nice, easy to use, good results.
Disadvantages: Leaves laundry a bit crisp when dried indoors.
~*~* Intro ~*~*
After a brief dalliance with laundry products from the cheaper end of the scale I have shuffled back to the better known brands. At the weekend I spotted Daz Summer Flower Power concentrated liquid wash on offer in Morrisons for £3.00 for a 27 wash bottle (December 2012). I have a massive 9kg washing machine so I use double the recommended amount, 2 capfuls rather than 1, so I expect to get roughly 14 washes out of the bottle.
~*~* In Use ~*~*
The liquid is a rich yellow colour, the same colour as the centre of a cream egg, and a nice thick consistency. The liquid smells sweet, soapy and floral. I measure 2 capfuls into the draw of my washing machine and set off a 40 degree wash, I usually do everyday laundry on 40 degrees and towels, bedding and underwear on 60 degrees.
I find I get excellent results from the Daz Summer Flower Power, the laundry smells really fresh and fills the house with a lovely clean floral aroma while it is drying on clothes horses around the house. The laundry dries up a bit crisp as I have not been using conditioner but it still smells of the detergent and irons quite easily. The aroma of the detergent clings to my laundry for a good week or so after washing.
The Daz Flower Power removes the majority of food stains and general day to day dirt on the first wash and I am very happy with the results. It will be a while before I wander back to the cheap end of the detergent scale.
~*~* Conclusion ~*~*
The bottle is well shaped for pouring and contains all the essential information such as contact details for P&G, safety warnings and usage instructions. The bright yellow of the packaging is very eye catching on the shelf and it is great that the lid can be used as a dosing measure. I find the guide of 27 washes a bit misleading as I have a larger sized machine, wash for wash it comes in at a little over 20 pence a wash.
I find that the detergent cleans really well and I really enjoy the scent and overall I am very happy with my choice but loses a star as at full price I think it is a bit expensive.
