Flash with Febreze All Purpose Wipes
Advantages: Durable and they work
When it comes to household cleaning I can be a tad OCD, I've always been the same. My surfaces have to be clean all the time or at least when I am in the house. There are times when I just need to give my kitchen table a wipe over (especially after my daughter has eaten!) or quickly wipe down the utility worktop where the cats are fed. For these little jobs I tend to favour cleaning wipes as I just find them easy and convenient.
In Tesco at the moment (review written 19th Nov 2012) Flash have reduced their prices to £1 for their all-purpose wipes. I took full advantage and bought a pack of the Flash with Febreze All Purpose Cleaning Wipes in Mediterranean Lemon. I like Flash products and tend to have at least one of their products in my cupboard at any one time. I like the results and find them good value for money and for just £1 I thought the wipes were worth trying.
What are they?
Flash wipes are of course quick and convenient making the household chore a lot easier to deal with. They combine Flash's cleaning 'technology' together with a fresh Febreze scent of either Mediterranean Lemon, Mediterranean Orange and Anti Bac. Flash have used natural extracts to ensure the wipes clean effectively. They are safe to use on any hard, washable surfaces and once used there is no need to wipe the area dry.
The wipes come in a bright blue plastic pack (60 per pack) which has a clear re-sealable tab. On the front there is the large yellow Flash logo together with images of lemons in a blue, white and yellow colour theme. On the back of the pack there is information about the product itself, how to use it, warnings and contact information for Flash. The one thing I find useful is putting the pack in a plastic tub as the re-sealable tab can easily stop becoming sticky!
The wipes are white in colour and slightly textured, similar to that of kitchen role except slightly longer in length and of course quite moist, slightly wetter than a wet or baby wipe which is nice as you know it will hopefully clean the surface. These wipes really do smell of lemons. However, it isn't that horrible sharp, cleaner type lemon scent it is much more of a fresh almost quire realistic lemon scent!
To use the wipes you simply take one out the packet and wipe the chosen surface and that's it! I do find that these wipes are wet enough to actually clean the surface effectively and you can easily see where the wipes have been. It doesn't however take long for the surface to become completely dry may be a few seconds before the surface is dry which is great and you still get a lovely but subtle lemon scent which does linger for quite sometime.
Now I don't know how well these wipes would deal with dried on stains and marks as I never use it on such issues as I simply wipe down the kitchen worktops, kitchen table etc and they easily manage with basic day to day dust and dirt such as my daughter's yoghurt, pasta sauce etc! The wipes are incredibly tough and durable and don't break apart in your hand. They keep my surfaces clean and I really have no complaints whatsoever.
For just £1 I think these wipes are great, they do exactly what they say whilst keeping my surfaces incredibly clean with a subtle scent left behind. You only need to use one wipe at any one time as they are quite large in size and strong so the pack of 60 wipes will last for quite some time. Definitely a recommendation from me and can easily give them 5 stars.
