When it comes to washing it's actually a past time I enjoy! I love buying washing products and at the moment staying with my mate I've made it my job to do it and overtaken the washing machine much to her delight! The one thing I have noticed though is that our whites were looking a bit grubby and not as white as I'd like them to appear which is why I purchased these for us!
Black box with a photograph of a little boy on the front of it showing us his dirty hands! I am told that they are Dylon Power Whitener 'Brilliant whites for all the family' and that they contain stain remover and that they work on 30C and that this box (I have) contains 4 sachets.
Other information on the box includes telling me a bit about the product and how to use them and contact details for Dylon are listed. Inside the box the sachets are white plastic and list what they are on them and I'm also told they are suitable for using if hand washing and warnings are listed on the back of each sachet. Nice enough informative packaging this is and I like the way one sachet is one wash and so it's already measured out.
A Bit About The Product According To The Information Given On The Box:
Dylon Power Whitener puts the dazzle back into your whites - ideal when family life puts whites to the test with ingrained dirt and stubborn stains. With its oxy-based dual action stain removers and whiteners. Dylon power whitener is a powerful solution for brilliant whites.

Me Using It:
Well I use this in washer machine in the main but have used a sachet or two in my time for hand washing when on holiday too!
The sachets are plastic meaning they are a bit of a pain to open but it's do-able with scissors but i can't tear them by myself!
In the washer machine of course I add this white and dark blue speckled powder into the dispenser drawer along with the detergent in it's usual amount and along with fabric softener. You get rather a generous amount of this fine powder and it smells wonderful and sort of lightly fruity really.
I then only wash whites and creams with this, including net curtains and select the hottest temperature possible and suitable for the fabrics to be washed in of course. I usually at the hottest go to 60C to be honest!
The wash takes place as normal and then all your left to do is dry the stuff!
Whites and cream coloured items do look a damn sight better! Both me and my mate bought John Rocha white dressing gowns the other day and managed to get tea and red wine down them one night and panicked like mad about it. We washed them immediately whilst adding this to the wash and were concerned though the white dressing gowns really did come up stain free and most importantly clean and fresh smelling!
Like I said previously I have used this for hand washing too. On camp sites it cost loads to wash and dry stuff so I usually washed white undies and my lights in a sink relegated to cold water too (when the taps froze over in January lol) and I simply washed items in this and this alone and as directed on the box and my items really responded to being hand scrubbed with this stuff and came up gleaming.
I love this stuff! I love the added cleaning properties it gives on horrid stains and it really does budge things like tea, coffee, red wine and even blood each and every time I use it with ease. I have even found this to remove ingrained stains on my white vests and things like that that I simply put up with!
A good all round cleaning product that boosts cleaning and expect to pay about £1.99 for 4 sachets in places like Sainsbury's.
