“ Brand: Morrisons / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
While trying to keep the cost of my shopping down I picked up a 1 litre bottle of Morrisons Value Fabric Conditioner for only 45p. As you would expect this is a no frills product, the packaging is very basic, it is a square semi opaque plastic bottle with a screw off lid. As the bottle is semi opaque I can easily see the blue fabric conditioner contained within.
The label on the front tells me that the bottle contains enough fabric conditioner for up to 28 washes. The label on the back of the bottle contains the usual safety warnings, directions for use (55ml for 6-7kg loads and 35ml for 4-5kg loads) and tells me that the fabric conditioner will help reduce wear and tear, care for fabric and condition my wash.
Sounds good so far, when I remove the lid I am greeted by a watery looking blue liquid, the fabric conditioner does have quite a strong sweet smell, it is soapy and powdery with maybe a hint of Parma Violets or Marshmallows. I find the scent quite pleasant and so far I am more than happy to give this liquid a go.
As I have a 9kg machine and I like my towels and bedding to be lovely and soft and smell nice I just fill the conditioner compartment up to the max, I estimate that is just over two capfuls, which seems about right for the amount of washes I am getting from the bottle (about 10).
Upon pouring I notice that the fabric conditioner is very runny, it is not gloopy like some of the more expensive brands. The liquid pours well and does not dribble down the side of the bottle and the machine takes all the fabric conditioner from the dispenser draw with no trouble. I personally feel this fabric conditioner is not a concentrated product despite claiming so on the label, it has the consistency of original Lenor.
As I remove the wash from the machine I am pleased to note that I can smell the fabric conditioner and I can feel it on the clothes. As I do not posses an energy hungry tumble dryer I pop my washing out on the line to dry, these windy days have been great for catching up. I really enjoy the scent of my clean laundry, it smells as it should fresh and clean and not like an explosion between a florists and a smoothie factory.
Once dry I note that the all my bedding and clothes are soft with a hint of the fabric conditioners scent. I am sorely disappointed by the towels which feel quite rough; the fabric conditioner has had little to no effect on them.
I find clothes that have been through a wash using this fabric conditioner are easy to iron and release a delicate sweet floral fragrance which remains with them while they are in the drawers. Once the clothes are worn the scent of the fabric conditioner soon fades but the clothes remain soft and static free.
All things considered I will buy this fabric conditioner again for bedding and clothing loads but for towels I will try stepping up a brand to see what result I get.
I am removing one star for crispy towels and another for the amount of liquid I have to use.
Thank you for reading.
Whenever I go shopping and getting fabric sofener or conditioner for my washing I usually opt for Lenor. With it costing at best a pound a bottle but if not on offer closer to £2.00 a bottle and with me doing a lot of washing when I spotted this 1 Litre bottle in Morrisons costing only 45p a bottle I decided to try make the saving and go for it!
Well the bottle is oblong in shape and made from frosted white plastic with a matching cap that simply twists on/off with ease. On the front and the back of the bottle there is white labeling and on the front one we are told that it is 'M' Savers Concentrated Fabric Conditioner and that it is 1 litre in size and should provide us with 28 washes. On the back label other information listed includes being told a bit about the product, the ingredients are listed as are directions for use given and warnings and contact details for Morrisons are given. This does look a cheap bottle though to be fair to it, it is informative as it needs to be.
Well to use this you simply use 1 capful of the light blue, runny liquid and dispense it into the fabric softener compartment on your washing machine or for larger loads use about a cap and a half of it. The exact amounts are listed on the back of the bottle, me personally I simply use 1 cap for a full standard sized wash and you can also use this for handwashing by diluting it and using a small amount if you so desire.
This conditioner on the back of the bottle tells us that it is meant to help reduce wear and tear on fabrics, care for them and condition your wash!
First off I like the unisex fragrance of this one. Its sort of sweet and soapy smelling. I guess you could say a little floral but its a lovely and fresh and not too in your face fragrance and it doesn't smell cheap to me at all but rather nice indeed.
One capful leaves my wash smelling great and that fragrance lingers on my fabrics even when stored for a few days, my fabrics are left feeling smooth and soft and easier to iron as well. I went through a phase recently of using a two in one washing powder that almost destroyed my clothes etc and now I'm back to using a washing liquid and this and clothes feel much, much better against my skin.
Yes the liquid it thinner than many more expenisve brands however to me it does the same job to be fair to it. If you like the fragrance, and there is only this one available than try it. It'll save you money and work a treat and yes it gets a big thumbs up from me and my purse!
Only available from Morrisons stores.
I don't use a huge amount of fabric conditioner but when I do I don't like splashing out a fortune on it so last time I bought some in Morrisons I went for their value version. This fabric conditioner comes in a 1 litre bottle and costs about 45p which is a bargain price but is it any good?
The bottle is square with a screw off lid and a yellow label that announces at the tills you've bought some value item! I don't care about this though and I'm always so pleased to find a bargain I'm actually quite proud I haven't been suckered by some expensive product instead! The bottle is semi-opaque so you can see the blue liquid inside. On the label it claims to "help reduce wear and tear, care for fabric and condition your wash" and suggests 1 capful for a normal size wash and about one and a half for a large load (6-7kg). For hand washing dilute 18ml in 10 litres of water and then add washed clothes and agitate thoroughly, leave to soak for 2-3 minutes then rinse.
The warnings are not to pour directly onto clothes, always dilute before use, keep out of reach of children, in case of contact with eyes rinse thoroughly with water then seek medical advice and after use wash hands thoroughly. To store just keep bottle upright and that's all the advice given.
When I do use fabric conditioner I tend to use it on sheets, duvet covers and pillow cases and just my jeans and jumpers. All other items I don't bother as my skin is a bit temperamental so I try and keep it to a minimum. I have been known to put a small amount on a flannel and pop it into the tumble dryer to reduce static and it works great, much cheaper than dryer sheets too.
When I buy fabric conditioner in the shop as opposed to online I always have to sniff it first. This one smells nice, fresh and floral and the kind of fragrance I'd be happy to have linger. I admit I don't use exact measurements for my washing machine and just pour some in randomly and if I had to handwash, which I did for a while recently because the washing machine broke, I wouldn't bother with using fabric conditioner and giving myself even more work!
I've been using this bottle for a few months because I don't use it every wash and it really is worth buying. It not only smells lovely when you pull the washing out but reduces static, makes the clothes lovely and soft and lingers for a while once they are dry too. I can't fault it and would happily buy it again instead of other value versions or expensive brands. I love the fact I'm getting excellent results from an item some people turn thir nose up at and spend alot more than they have to on other brands.
Overall it works very well, costs pennies, smells lovely and floral and lingers for a while on dry clothes. I can find no gripes whatsoever and give it a full 5 star rating. Highly recommended.
I don't normally use a fabric conditioner but I bought some cheap shop branded washing powder that smelt of nothing when I had washed my clothes with it. Because I did not want it to go to waste I then thought I would buy some fabric conditioner to put in the wash also to make them smell nice.
I purchased a 1 litre bottle of Morrisons Value Concentrated Fabric Conditioner for 44p. It smells very much like the original blue Comfort but is more watery and doesn't look like its concentrated The packaging is an opaque bottle with the yellow value range label on and the bottle is 100% recyclable and it states that you will get 28 standard washes from it.
My clothes did smell nice and felt soft with no residue on them but I would say that the smell was not as strong as a well known brand but if you are on a budget then for 44p you can't go wrong.
I would use this product again.
