Advantages: disinfects, easy to use
Disadvantages: some may say price
I came across the 'Dettol disinfectant spray' at my friend's house when she was cleaning up. I had never seen a disinfectant spray like this before so I was quite fascinated by how it worked.
The reason this product stands out from many other cleaning products is that it comes in an 300ml aerosol can which you are supposed to shake the can before use and hold it 15-20 cm away from the surface and then spray the surface and leave it to dry rather the normal cleaning products where you would wipe the surface down. This cleaning product is very easy to use because of this and doesn't involve any work. It makes cleaning much easier.
The spray can is mainly white with a blue lid and with the Dettol logo on the front. It also says 'kills flu virus' on the front, which will appeal to a lot of people.
The disinfecting spray kills 99.9% of germs in 30 seconds. The germs it is claimed to kill are: Salmonella, E coli, Campylobacter, Athletes foot fungus, Staph and Listeria, Rhinovirus, Rotavirus, Respiratory syncytial virus, Poliovirus type 1, adenovirus type 1 and 2, Hepatitis 2. This list will probably shock some of you that these actually do lurk around your home. You can end up driving yourself insane with it if you think about it too much and end up using this product like a maniac. Which I wouldn't recommend because I do think it is healthy to have some bacteria hanging around the home.
It is recommended to spray in toilets, bins, showers, door handles and so on. I particularly like to use this on the toilet as it means I don't have to use a cloth, which would get full of germs. It is very handy for my bins too. I do really find this product really helpful for those places that will carry tons of bacteria.
The Dettol spray is £3.00 for 300ml. I don't think it is too badly priced, as it is a very affective product.
Would I buy the product again?
Absolutely, I wouldn't use it all the time for cleaning because It isn't going to clean stains or anything like that, but as far as disinfecting surfaces goes as far as I know it works a treat. Its hard to judge a product like this because no one knows if the product is disinfecting the surfaces really but I'm sure if the product claims to do and has been lab tested it must do. It feels much better knowing that the surfaces I use are disinfected when I use them. I even use this on my steering wheel because the amount of bacteria on a steering wheel is unbelievable so I try to do it once a week. It would also be quite useful on keyboards as this is another area, which has tons of harmful bacteria's. I cannot fault this product therefore it deserves 5 stars.
