Advantages: Very economical - pleasant aroma.
Disadvantages: May not be strong enough for heavily soiled items.
---Why I Bought This---
Having had teenagers at home and now still with a student son (and friends!) I do tend to have quite a bit of washing. Often however the clothing and towels are not really dirty at all but just need a freshen-up. I therefore like using a 30 degree quick wash cycle which takes about half an hour. I find that washing powders do not disolve very well in this quick wash so prefer to use a little washing liquid. With this being only £1 for a large bottle I find it very economical - even cheaper than the Tesco Everyday Value one which is £1.65 for 1 litre of concentrted bio liquid.

States can be used for up to 25 washes.
Supposed to combine cleaning power with exotic aromas.
Made in the EU by Purity Global Ltd.
Also comes in a pink version called 'Enritual Passion'. Tesco also sell their fabric conditioner, softener and gels.
Mine was purchased online from Tesco - I do not know who else stocks this.
£1 for a litre.
This is a thinnish white liquid which pours out very easily - but is not too watery.
With family members often discarding towels and clothing without them actually being dirty I find a quick wash on the shortest 30 degree cycle is fine - the clothes come out fresh and smelling nicely - which is a bonus.
This liquid does not seen strong enough to clean really dirty clothes such as stained collars etc - but these I usualy do on a 40 degree wash with some powder such as Daz.
This may sound as if I a not happy with this product but that is not true. I would say about 85% of my washing is just damp towels and t-shirts that are not actualy dirty - so a quick wash is all they need and I find this cheap liquid works well enough, smells pleasant in a faint way and is econonomical as the bottle seems to last me absolutely ages - much longer than when I was buying the Tesco Value washing powder.
I have also bought the pink 'Passion' verson as well but I find that this one has a pleasanter and stronger smell - though it is still faint - but then I am not buying it for the aroma - it does not actually smell of anything specific, just a nice sort of soapy smell.
Most fo my own and my son's items I can wash this way - and the endless pile of towels. I use a hotter wash and powder for hubby's clothes - but he spends time pottering in the garden - also I do this for bedclothes as well.
I cannot criticise this liquid too much as I have never really tried it in larger, stronger concentrations as they suggest for heavier soiled items
All in all a really cost effective way to do your laundry - and I do not have to resmort to what my sister used to do with her teenage daughters many years ago and just hang the stuff on the line to make the think it had been washed!
4 stars - not so good on bad staining and dirt.
---Would I Recommend?---
Yes. Good for not too dirty items and ones that just need a quick rinse through - economical.
Summary: Great inexpensive everyday laundry liquid - super for quick washes
