Good, But So's the Value Brand
Member Name: northernlovely
Advantages: A good thick bleach
Disadvantages: This - £1.20, value brand - 39p, a no brainer for money savers
I use a lot of bleach when cleaning, and Domestos is the brand name that most people go for. But is it any better than your own brand thick bleach?
**Price and Availability**
A 750ml bottle of Domestos Bleach is priced at £1.20, however can often be found on offer for £1.
It's available in the top five supermarkets and most smaller ones, too, as well as Boots, Superdrug, Wilkinsons and even DIY stores.
How does this compare to the value version? Well I can buy a bottle of 'Domestos-Alike' in B&M Bargains for 39p, so a 61p saving!
The bottle is blue (for the standard original bleach scent) with a screw top red lid and a label around the centre with the Domestos logo and instructions / warnings on it. Very standard and very recognisable as bleach.
**The Bleach, and Use**
The bleach is nice and thick and as close to clear in colour as you can get. It has a very strong bleach smell which I don't mind, but I do open the windows and don't use it near my baby daughter.
It has so many uses around the house -
- in the loo
- in the plugholes, in the kitchen and bathroom sinks and in the bath
- around the taps, to bleach any residue
- a thin solution to bleach cleaning cloths back to white
- a very thin solution to clean the kitchen and bathroom floors
and so much more. You need to be careful when using bleach as obviously it does take the colour out of materials but when used sensibly it's great for a 100% clean.
But how does this compare to the value version? Personally, I can't tell the difference..
**Domestos over Value Brand?**
To be honest as much as Domestos is a great product in itself it prices itself too high for me and I use the Domestos alike for 39p without noticing the difference at all.
Summary: A great bleach which prices itself out of my basket
