When it comes to washing I'm a right fuss pot I have to admit. I love nice clean clothes and fabrics like most of us do of course but I do get totally fed up of my whites not being as white as I'd like them to be!
This is why I purchased this product in Asda costing £1.50, to give it a try on some whites that had gone rather grey . My white socks were filthy and grimy looking, my white John Rocha dressing gown was covered in tea stains that had been ingrained for months upon months, net curtains, white towels and white bras looked really shabby. I had high hopes for this brightening up my fabrics and couldn't wait to use a sachet in the washing machine as a treat!
The sachets come in a white box and on the front of said box I am told that they are Dylon Ultra Whitener 'Brighter whites for all the family' and there is a photograph on there of a grey shirt turning into a white shirt after using this and I am told that there are 4 sachets in the box. Other information on the box includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, the size is stated which is 4x25g and contact details for the manufacturer are stated. The sachets inside the box are large, plastic and white and again on them you are told what they are on each one clearly. Nice enough packaging this is and it looks effective by the style of it.
These are designed for white clothes and fabrics when through ordinary 'everyday' washing they can loose their white and brightness. You simply pop a sachet into the dispenser drawer of the washing machine along with your usual detergent and fabric softener or you can use this for handwashing by using the hottest water possible (according to the care labels that are given on fabrics) and then wash and dry as normal.
The powder is thin, white and to me smells a bit like fresh cut grass with a sweetness over it. That sounds not great but it is actually a rather pleasant and fresh smell.
I only use this in the washer machine and completely follow the instructions I have just given you that are on the box.
This works reasonably well. On tough stains and even on a 95C wash I found it to remove rather alot, however not all stains but certainly more than washing detergent alone. Fabrics that just needed brightening...? Yes it worked a treat on my nets and came out looking immaculate even though they had gone in my washing machine nicotine stained.
I think this is a great addition to my washing routine however I do need to rinse my dispenser drawer out after each time I have used this as it does clump up bad and try to block my machine up.
This doesn't have a lot of aroma to it once you have used other washing products but it does help to leave my fabrics soft and as I have stated already I have noticed a vast improvement it just simply isn't a miracle worker!
Available in all good supermarkets etc priced at around £1.50 a box of four sachets.
