“ Brand: Daz / Type: Laundry Detergent / Category: Laundry „
I don't tend to like buying my detergent in liquid format as I prefer powder however I have an eye for an offer when I spotted this heavily discounted recently, I decided to give it a go.
There were three different varieties available, I didn't have time to smell each one and pick my favourite, I just picked this one as I found it the most eye-catching in its bright pink bottle. I have only seen this available in one size, 800ml which is meant to last about 20 washes, I found this to be about right if I was washing really dirty clothes every time but I always use just under the recommended amount and find that I get 25 washes from it. The cost of the bottle is £4 which is reasonable when compared to other branded detergents, at the time I purchased, it was reduced to £2 which works out at about 8-10p a wash which I think is excellent.
The bright pink bottle has a grey screw top lid which can be used as a measuring jug so I know how much of the product to use per wash. The bottle has what I can describe as a pouring mechanism on the top which makes it easy to pour into the cap. The liquid gel has quite a thick consistency and is a nice lilac colour, as soon as I remove the cap, the strong floral fragrance is evident, although I couldn't detect violet, it definitely is a floral fragrance.
With the exception of other halves chef whites, I do most of my washing at 30, I find that this is quite good at cleaning every day clothes, but also quite good at higher setting and heavily soiled clothes (his white come home ditched sometimes).
I used to always use Fairy Non Bio for Lauren's clothes, just because it is meant to be gentler on the skin however I have used this on her clothes, sheets and even teddies and she hasn't suffered any kind of reactions. 9 times out of 10, I always use fabric softener and I find that the fragrance of this seems to overpower the fragrance of the detergent however this seems a lot stronger, as soon as I take the clothes from the washing machine, I can smell the detergent but the biggest downside for me is that this quickly fades
Overall, I really like this detergent and if it is on offer again, I would repurchase so I would give it 4 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
When it comes to buying washing powder I'm not loyal to a certain brand, I always go for whatever is on offer at the time as long as it smells nice. Recently when I was doing my weekly shop I noticed that they had Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast Washing Powder on offer, I gave it a quick sniff in the shop and liked it so I decided to give it a go.
Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast comes in a bright purple rectangle plastic bottle, it has a large white lid on the top which simply screws on and off of the top of the bottle and also doubles up as a dosing cup.
There is a label covering most of the front of the bottle, this has the name Daz written in the centre with loads of little purple and white flowers bursting from it, there is also a white circle behind the name making it stand out.
The words Violet Blossom Blast are written just underneath this in purple writing, the other information at the bottom of the bottle states approximately how many washes you will get from one bottle.
There is also a label on the back of the bottle which contains all of the product information, this includes facts about the product, directions for use, warnings and the ingredients, all of this information is clearly set out and easy to read and follow.
The Washing Liquid
Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast washing liquid is also a bright purple colour to match the colour of the bottle, it is of a reasonably thick consistency, however not so thick that you cannot pour it, the washing liquid pours easily into dosing cup without having to squeeze the bottle to get the product out.
I particularly liked the fragrance of this product, it had a lovely floral smell to it which I knew would leave my clothes smelling clean and fresh, the fragrance of this product was just the right strength, it was strong enough so that it lingered on my clothes for a while after washing and drying, also when I dried my clothes on the radiators in my house you could smell the lovely floral fragrance coming off of them as they dried, however the smell was not what I would call overpowering at all.
Some washing liquids can have a bit of a harsh smell to them, this was not the case with this product, the floral fragrance smelt natural and not harsh at all, the information on the back of the packaging even states that this washing liquid will clean your clothes and please your nose as well as promising freshness.
The Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast doest make any promises to be suitable for sensitive skin, however now Jayden is older I tend to put his clothes with a regular washing powder and have washed his clothes using this product and had no problems at all with it irritating his skin or causing any problems.
Directions for Use
Using this product is very simple and the instructions state that all you need is 1 cap of Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast per wash, this makes the product very long lasting and I found that I could easily stick to this or less.
These are pretty standard for this type of product and include that you should avoid contact with your eyes and also keep the product out of the reach of children.
Price and Availability
Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast Washing Liquid is available from most supermarkets, I purchased my 880ml bottle from my local Tesco. The product is usually sold for £4.00 which I personally think is excellent value for money, however when I purchased mine it was half price and was being sold for just £2.00, I decided to stock up on the product while it was on offer and built up a bit of a stock pile of it, however even at full price it is still worth the money as it is long lasting and economical which for us is ideal as since Jayden was born my washing basket is hardly ever empty and I do washing most days so a long lasting product is a must have for us.
I was extremely pleased with my Daz Liquid Violet Blossom Blast, I really like the fragrance of it and it left my clothes looking and smelling clean and fresh, the fragrance was just the right strength and lasted for a reasonable amount of time on my washing once it was dried.
The product was very reasonably priced and in my opinion well worth the money, it lasted for a decent amount of time.
This product is ideal for the whole family, although I probably wouldn't use this on really young baby clothes in case it irritated their delicate skin as it doesn't make any promises to be suitable for sensitive skin, however I now use this for Jayden's clothes now he is a bit older as I have previously mentioned.
I have used this product on numerous occasions now as I stocked up on it while it was on offer, this is definitely a product I would recommend to anyone and one I would use again in the future.
I like to chop and change when it comes to my laundry products so when my massive box of Daz powder ran out I was more than happy to give something else a try. The product that caught my eye while shopping was Daz Violet Blossom Blast Concentrated liquid.
Daz concentrated liquids are currently £2 for 880ml 20 wash bottle in Morrisons (March 2013) and come in Citrus splash and Summer Flower Power varieties too. As I have a 9kg washer I need to use a cap and a half of liquid (66ml) to give me good results, therefore I get 15 washes from the 880ml pack making each wash cost just over 13p a wash.
What attracted me to Daz Violet Blossom Blast over the other varieties was the lovely purple colour of the bottle, as pictured above, and a quick sniff before purchasing confirmed it would be a product I enjoyed on my clothes.
The liquid itself is a dark purple colour and is quite viscous; it flows from the bottle well and thanks to the style of the opening all dribbles from using the cap as a measure are directed into the bottle and not down the sides of the bottle. The concentrated liquid should be measured into the dispenser draw.
The scent of the liquid is quite rich and sweet and only a little floral, I can not smell violets. When the laundry is wet the scent lingers and smells nice and clean, I am currently not using fabric conditioner but I don't think the Daz Violet Blossom Blast has a distinctive enough scent to clash with a fabric conditioner.
The clothes wash up well and I have had no need to rewash any items, because my Husband works in an office and my children are teenagers none of us get overly dirty and the process of washing the clothes is more to freshen them up than remove any ground in stains or dirt. I usually wash at 40 degrees and I am always happy with the cleanliness of the clothes when using Daz Violet Blossom Blast.
Unfortunately I do not have a tumble drier so I can only comment on the softness of the clothes when they are line dried or dried on an airer. I find most of the clothes are quite soft and easy to iron; the towels are starting to get a bit on the rough side especially when dried indoors so I am starting to feel the need to use fabric conditioner in conjunction with Daz Violet Blossom Blast.
The scent of the laundry detergent does not last long when dried, the clothes smell fresh and clean but there is nothing distinctive about the scent.
Overall I am not especially wowed by Daz Violet Blossom Blast, at 13p a wash I think it is good value, and the cleaning ability is good enough for my families lightly soiled laundry, the scent, although nice is not particularly long lasting or strong so I don't think I will be buying this variety of Daz liquid again.
3/5 stars due to its under whelming performance.
Thank you for reading.
This is a review of Daz Violet Blossom Blast Concentrated which we are currently using. I must admit I was attracted to the bright pink bottle although it was on offer so I also picked it up in another 'flavour' as it was such a good price.
Sizings and varieties
My bottle is compact and promises 20 washes although I can see other sizes online at 27 and 22 washes and also in powder format. I am a big fan of liquid detergent as I find it works better and is less messy. I'm not sure if the 20 washes is a new size or part of the market's trend to look like the same deal (only smaller).
You really do use a small amount with every wash. A capful is enough to do the wash as it is concentrated and I have to remember to put this in the drawer rather than the drum. It would be wasteful to use the caps off other products as this cap is a lot smaller. The liquid is really thick as it pours from the bottle and violet in colour. Because of the thickness I find it is not drippy like some other detergents I have used. A single dose is 44ml which works out right as 20 washes for this 880ml bottle.
You are advised not to use this on wool or silk or as a prewash, and not in the dryer either!
I suppose the most important point from this product (besides performance) is how does it smell? The bottle says 'Our cleaning never smelled so good!' and I have to say I like the smell even with a bunged up nose. I wouldn't have guessed it was violet blossom as it still smells soapy to me but it is still a pleasant smell.
I first tried this liquid detergent with mainly bedding and towels and a few other bits and I was really pleased with the way the bedding felt soft and smelled lovely when it came out of the wash and the smell remained in it after drying.
I bought two bottles of this when it was on offer in Tesco and paid £2 per bottle which I thought was a decent price.
I am pleased with the price, performance and perfume of this liquid detergent and will definitely buy it again if it is priced around the same. A bottle lasts me around three weeks (with two young kids we do a lotta washing!). I really do recommend this and advise trying it if you see it.
Review of Daz Violet Blossom Blast Laundry Liquid.
Daz Violet Blossom Blast laundry liquid is a concentrated biological formula designed to provide cleaning power and fragrance in one package.
I believe this product is also available in a powder format, for those who prefer washing powders to liquids.
The liquid is presented in a recyclable plastic bottle containing 1.18 litres of liquid, this is enough for an impressive 27 washes. The bottle is very eye-catching being a bright pink/purple colour; the label is adorned with images of pretty purple and pink flowers. A bright yellow flash bears the strapline 'Our Cleaning Never Smelled Sooo Good'.
All instructions for use, warnings and company information can be found on the rear of the bottle. The white cap acts as the measuring device and Daz advise one capful per wash-load. The liquid can either been poured directly into the detergent drawer of the washing machine or placed into a 'Daz' dosing device and placed in the drum. A free dosing device can be obtained from the company website.
The product has a lovely fragrance; as one would expect it is predominantly a floral type scent, I cannot honestly say that I can detect violets within the scent. The biological washing liquid is a gorgeous violet colour and it is a fairly thick consistency. I have found that this Daz liquid works well at all temperatures, high or low.
Admittedly, as we are a household comprising of two retired adults, I do not have food stained toddlers clothing or heavily soiled work clothing to deal with nowadays. Daz Violet Blossom Burst does seem to leave a lingering fragrance on the laundry which lasts very well. The fragrance is not quite a distinct if the washing is tumble dried as it seems to evaporate rather in the dryer.
I have to admit that I have absolutely no loyalty to any one brand of laundry product, as long as it cleans my laundry and does not irritate my skin, I don't care much what it is! That said, Daz Laundry liquids are my current favourite purchase, particularly as one of my local supermarket have been running promotional offers on the product range recently. I paid just £2 for this in Asda, which in comparison to the usual price charged of £4.48, is a massive bargain.
The other fragrances in the Daz range, Citrus Blast and Summer Flowers were not included in this special offer.
As with any laundry product, Daz should be kept out of reach of children, it should be kept away from the eyes, hands should be rinsed and dried after contact, it should not be ingested and people with sensitive skin should avoid prolonged contact. In addition, this particular product is unsuitable for silk materials, should not be used for programmes requiring pre-wash and flame retardant fabrics should not be soaked in the product or washed at temperature higher than 50 degrees.
More information about Daz, their products and the company in general can be found on the Daz website:-
It is an informative site with laundry tips, a link for a free dosing ball or powder scoop and clips of the company's 'Cleaner Close' advertising campaign.
**My Thoughts and Conclusion**
Daz Violet Blossom Burst is a good quality laundry liquid. It does everything I expect from a washing product and more besides. The cleaning power is excellent and the product lives up to my expectations regarding cleaning, the scent and freshness left in the fabrics.
My (male) other half has sometimes said that laundry products smell too 'girly' for his taste, but he has not passed comment on this version, which has to be a bonus! I do not use a fabric softener these days and I have found that although this is not sold as a 2 in 1 type washing liquid, it does have a mild softening effect on the laundry.
I tend to wash mainly at low temperatures these days and have been very satisfied with the results from Daz. Even though we live in a very hard water region of the UK, I find the recommended one capful dose is adequate to obtain good results from the product.
The product rinses easily from the laundry and I have not suffered from any skin irritation after using this product. I do suffer with occasional outbreaks of contact dermatitis which can be aggravated by some household cleaning products, but this Daz liquid has caused me no ill effects.
To conclude I would recommend this product to others, it really does do as it promises, it is well worth seeking out when on special offer and I feel it deserves a 5* rating.
Thank you for reading.

N.B. My reviews may be found on other sites, under the same user name.
When it comes to buying laundry products I have no loyalty with brands as I either tend to buy what I have used before and that I like or I buy whatever is on offer and hope that they will be a good product. One of these bargain buys was made in my local Tesco at the cost of £2.00 for a bottle of Daz Violet Blossom Blast Liquid which had been reduced from £4.50 which I thought was a really good buy.
Daz is a household brand name that I think most of us when we hear of Daz we associate with the whiter than white phrase as well as those god awful television adverts. Daz does however do other products including their 'liquid' range which where the Violet Blossom Blast is from. They have two other varieties which were also reduced but I preferred the thought of violets hence my purchase.
What is it?
Daz Violet Blossom Blast is as I said a part of their liquid range which is as they claim "great for colours". It is of course a liquid so it easy to measure in the measuring cap it comes with and of course will dissolve quickly once the washing machine cycle has started. It is however, also suitable for pre-treating stains, hand washing as well as quick wash programmes and will give the same results whichever method you choose.
Daz Violet Blossom Blast comes in a bright magenta/purple coloured plastic bottle which is not transparent so you cannot see the liquid itself. On the front the label is just as colourful with purple floral images together with the large Daz logo. On the back there is information about the product together with usage directions, ingredients and contact information.
To use the Daz liquid you simply add 1 capful per wash into your washing machine drawer. I live in a hard water area and still only use 1 capful as it is concentrated and I don't use it on heavily soiled clothing (my partners football clothing) as I tend to only use it on clothes that just need a wash rather than those that have a few marks or stains.
The Daz Violet Blossom Blast is a deep violet colour which isn't transparent and has quite a thick consistency although not overly thick whereby you can't pour it out of the bottle but it is not as thin like a fabric conditioner. It does have a lovely floral fragrance to it which is really nice and although it wasn't a typical violet aroma it was still incredibly pleasant, I just hoped it would stay.
After putting a load of washing on and waiting for the cycle to finish I opened the door and was disappointed that I didn't notice a distinct fragrance at all. What I had originally smelt in the bottle had all but vanished. After smelling the clothes I could vaguely smell the very typical smell of freshly washed clothes but there was nothing floral about it which was a real shame.
However, despite the lack of fragrance on the clothes the Daz liquid had managed to wash my clothes adequately and any little marks (mainly from my daughter putting her sticky little hands on me) had disappeared. When dry the fragrance was still unnoticeable which was a real shame but my clothes managed to stay incredibly soft and were obviously well washed which I think is a good point really.
Yes, my clothes were looked after and washed well which of course is what you want with a laundry product. However, when you buy a fragranced product you do expect the fragrance to stay around and linger especially on the clothes. This one however has let me down somewhat as the aroma vanishes and I may as well have purchased a non-fragranced concentrated liquid and I probably wouldn't have been so disappointed.
Overall, I would recommend as it manages to wash clothes well and care for them but only buy it if it is on offer as I think the full price is just too expensive. Unfortunately, I can only give it 3 stars.
