Still the best

Fairy liquid is something that I have been brought up with and now that I am a mother and have my own house it is still something that I buy on a regular basis. I do try other washing up liquids when they are on offer but Fairy is something that I nearly always go back to.
There are loads of different kinds of Fairy these days but my favourite is still the original and there is just something that is comforting about the look and smell of the green liquid and it just smells so fresh and clean. It has been around for so many years so it is obviously doing something right.
Compared to other brands you only need a tiny amount of fairy liquid to fill the kitchen sink with loads of soapy bubbles. The bubbles also don't just disappear as soon as you have only finished washing one plate and last long enough to do an entire sink full of dishes.
The cleaning power of Fairy is excellent and I think it is the best out of all the washing up liquids and still better than all the other fancy smelling Fairies that are now available. It really does help to shift stuck on food and remove grease more easily and after soaking dishes for a few minutes in the soapy bubbles most stuck on food just wipes off without the need for too much scrubbing.
It is also one of the better washing up liquids for not leaving loads of streaks on dishes and especially glass. It does still leave a slight residue but this is easily wiped off with a dry cloth unlike some washing up liquids that you really have to buff to remove.
Of course other than being fantastic at cleaning dishes it is also really good for refilling kids bubbles and the bubbles it makes are big and strong and don't just disintegrate as soon as they have been blown.
Fairy liquid costs around about £1.60 for a 650ml bottle which will last you for ages since you only need a tiny amount each time you use it to get loads of bubbles. They are nearly always on offer somewhere though and you can sometimes get them on a buy one get one free or two for a certain price so I always make sure and stock up when these offers are on.
Fairy liquid original is still the best that money can buy all these years later and I am sure that I will probably still be using it for the next 50 years as I can't imagine anything coming along that I will think is significantly better enough to tempt me away from this old favourite.
Summary: Still the best
