I get through quite a lot of bottles of hand wash in my house as I much prefer to use it instead of bars of soap. I must have tried just about every one out ther at some time or another and I paid only 99p for this quite large (250ml) sized bottle when Home Bargains were selling it earlier this year. They no longer seem to stick it now, sadly, and I haven’t seen it in supermarkets, so I cannot get hold of another bottle, though I would very much like to.
This is a lovely fresh hand wash, by Dettol, which is a brand I really trust. It has a unique kind of anti bacterial smell (it kills up to 99.9% of germs anyway) tough I think you can detect this from the smell. Don’t worry – your hands will NOT smell of Dettol which you use this – not at all, but the fragrance is very distinctive, I think.
It comes in the usual pump dispenser type bottle and when depressed, it pumps out just the right amount of hand wash to enable me to get a good soapy lather on my hands. It foams really well and rinses off perfectly afterwards, and leaves no sticky residue on the hands. It does, however, leave quite a strong fragrance and I like it, though my hubby is not so keen on the smell of this one, as he keeps telling me.
I will buy another bottle jsut as soon as I can find one.
I go through a handwash a week, I always buy what's on offer. This wash was a £1 in Asda. A bottle contains 250ml of wash and comes with a pump dispenser. The bottle has Dettol's green and white sword logo and a picture of a grapefruit on the front.
The wash is described as 'refresh' It is antibacterial and contains ectract of grapefruit, Dettol claim it kills 99.9% of germs as well as leaving hands soft, moisturised and protected from bacteria. The handwash is also dermatologically tested ensuring it is kind to the skin.
To use this handwash you simply pump a small amount onto wet hands, lather and rinse under clean running water. When the handwash is dispensed it smells really nice, it has a subtle hint of grapefruit and smells really fresh and clean.
The handwash lathers up really well I only used one pump which dispensed an amount about the size of a pea. The handwash removed all visable dirt from my hands and left them smelling fresh. Sometimes I have noticed when using other anti-bacterial handwashes that they leave my hands dry and sore, this particular handwash didn't, it left my hands feeling soft and not at all dry.
I would recommend this as a bathroom/kitchen essential, you get the trusted Dettol brand and a great handwash for a reasonable price. A bottle this size would last me about a week in the bathroom. I use it several times a day.
Dettol Liquid Refresh Hand wash -Get a pristine hand wash
I love trying out new hand washes and often keep on looking out for new products on the shelf.We have all grown up with this brand and trust the rich legacy of Dettol for its commitment for protection.
The packaging of this 250 ml bottle is impressive as it offers a transparent look of the orange liquid within. The brand Dettol is clearly imprinted on the bottle and readily attracts attention.
I normally like the hand wash to be thin in consistency so this one fits my bill completely. This is very easy to use and does not stick to your hand like most of the other hand wash brands.
We all know the scientific benefits of Dettol and you can mark on the top its effective tag line of killing bacteria but I would really like to point out that you will love the fragrance of this liquid hand wash.This also dries out well and ensures a clean and sweet smelling hand.
Last week I saw this in offer in ASDA and grabbed few. I will recommend this for sure although it is on the expensive side.
I have great faith in Dettol as a brand, I just trust that it will clean effectively and banish those nasties germs and bacteria. I regularly use Dettol multi surface cleaner and the floor cleaner and find that I get great results and feel confident and reassured that they produce the level of hygiene that I want for myself and my family.
Last week I was doing my online Tesco grocery shop and I was after some hand soap for my kitchen. I usually just buy the supermarket anti-bacterial variety but every now and then when other premium brands are on offer, I also give them a try.
In this instance I spotted that the Dettol handwash was on offer for £1.00 down from £1.99 for a 250ml bottle. The variety that really appealed to me was Refresh - it clearly stated on the bottle that it would kill 99.9% of bacteria and contained grapefruit extract which would in turn help to eliminate kitchen odours. This appealed to me me and I am regularly cooking with garlic and I really hate being left with sticky garlic fingers.
I decided to give the Dettol soap a try and added it to my online shop. When it arrived , I saw that the soap itself had a orange colour. The soap was packaged in a curved bottle and the soap was dispensed by a pump at the top of the bottle. I used the soap pretty much straight away and was suprised that the soap was a lot thin in it's consistancy than I had expected. I thought that this might mean it would not be terribly effective but I addded some my water to my hands and gave them a good wash. I really liked the smell of the soap, you could definately smell the grapefruit and I pleased that it smelt quite natural rather than an artificial smell.
After, washing and drying my hands, they did feel really clean and smelt really fresh. The soap also did not dry out my hands like other hand washes I had used in the past. I use it several times a day and I am really happy with the product and would definately buy it again, even at the full price.
Dettol is a name you can trust when it comes to killing germs. Thorough and effective handwashing has never been more important, as the TV campaigns against this years strain of Flu have highlighted.
Soap has a number of disadvantages when it comes to handwashing, it can turn into a gungy mess that needs cleaning up, it can actually harbour some germs itself if bits of debris get stuck to it, and it can leave your hands feeling like sandpaper if you do it well enough and often enough to be effective.
Enter Dettol Liquid Refresh Handwash. It has a hygenic dispensing system so that you don't get the mess. It is impossible for debris to infect it unless you deliberately prise the top off. It is gentle on hands even with frequent washing.
Dettol Liquid Refresh Handwash has a nice fresh citrus smell that leaves not only your hands, but also the cloakroom or kitchen smelling fresh after you have used it. It gets rid of the most pungent smells from the hands, this is very reassuring. Highly recommended.
I find that bars of soap leave my hands very dry, but liquid ones less so.
So naturally, I stick to liquid handwash.
I've tried many different types over the years, but I'm sticking with Dettol for now.
The handwash come in many different 'flavours' but my favourite at the moment is the orange coloured one, which has grapefruit extract in it. Healthy Touch Refresh it's called.
I've tried most 'flavours' over my time using this brand, but when it comes to strong smells (normally from cooking or gardening) some just don't remove them along with the dirt. But this one does.
They say the best natural deodoriser is lemon juice, and as grapefruit is also a citrus fruit, it comes a pretty close second. I can chop onions until I cry, I can peel garlic until I start speaking French and have no worries about my hands smelling for days. I just go to the sink and wash them away.
Of course, being Dettol, it claims to kill 99.9% of known bacteria - that I can't verify as I'm not a scientist and so haven't tested this claim - so it removes another worry after handling raw meat like chicken. E-Coli anyone? Not with this handwash
Quite often you can find these handwashes on offer in the big supermarkets, the last time I bought some it was 2 for £2 I think, so I tend to stock up on these occasions. Every little helps, after all.
A little feature of the packaging that I think is worthy of note, is that you can lock the pump. Just push the pump down, and twist in the direction as indicated, and it's done. The pump wont pop back up to dispense any more soap. Very handy when travelling. I even pack a bottle of handwash into my suitcase before jetting off somewhere suitably exotic (can't be too careful abroad eh) It's also handy to remember to check the pumps are locked before you bag them in the supermarket... soap accidentally squeezed into shopping bags is not pleasant
They come in 250ml bottles, plastic of course, so you can wash them out and chuck in the recycling bin.
So good for your hands, good for the recycling and bad for bacteria. Great!
