Fairy liquid, washing not just dishes!
Member Name: kaitlinsmummy
Advantages: Cleans dishes effectively, removes stains from clothes.
Disadvantages: Over dosing can cause slippery-ness!
After a recent shopping trip i was pleased to find that many household cleaners have been reduced and are now on offer, this is usually the only time i can afford to use the better branded products, hence the reason i am now reviewing Fairy washing up liquid rather than the Asda branded version!
The particular bottle i have at the moment is the gigantic 1200ml bottle, which seems to only be available in original, or (the one i have) lemon, and this size, even with twice daily use, will last me a good month or so!
You all know how to use it (and if you don't aren't you the lucky ones!), a small squirt under hot running water produces a nice bubbly water, gently scented with lemon.
I find when using this washing up liquid that my dishes always seem really easy to clean, and have the "squeak" factor (like when you rub your finger down a really clean plate!), with the water seeming to hold onto any food debris in the water much better than more budget branded liquids, though of course if you wash pans up before glasses you deserve streaks on your glasswear!
I find that any really greasy plates and pots come cleaner much easier, with the cheaper brands i have to usually put another little squirt directly onto them to produce a lather strong enough to degrease them, thus using more of the product, with this stuff a squirt is enough for all jobs.
The only downsides are if you over dose the water with the liquid, everything becomes so slippery that i find i drop everything, either smashing stuff or covering myself in water!
The second is the abundance of bubbles is nice to get the grease and much off the dishes, but i do find i have to rinse before placing on the drainer, but that is a personal preferance.
I have also found that Fairy not only cleans my dishes really well, but also helps remove really stubborn stains on clothes, simply wet the area and use a small amount onto the stain itself, rub in and leave to soak in for a few minutes.
Once the clothes have been through the washing machine, the stains have usually gone, this works really well on grease stains and chocolate ice cream, which are usually really difficult to remove, though be careful using this nethod on delicate materials!
Price wise this product usually sells (in my local Asda) for 2 for £2.50, and are the smaller sized bottles, but when the huge sized ones are on offer i only pay £2.00 a bottle, which is really exceptional value.
I cannot rate this stuff highly enough, so when on offer i stock up! Recommended!
Thanks for reading x
Summary: A fantastic washing up liquid.
