“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Dishwasher Powder / Category: Cleaning & Disinfectant „
I have two dishwashers at home, it's not a luxury. One is the landlord's and one is our own. I can use both of them if I have really much dishes. Despite these two dishwashers I clean the cutlery and the plastic bowls by hand. I prefer using salt, rinse liquid and dishwasher powder in the dishwasher to tablets, gel or liquid. There are branded ones available but last time I bought Sainsbury's own brand and I would like to share my experiences.
Price, package and texture
Sainsbury's lemon dishwasher powder comes in a yellow plastic bottle which has a handle so it is easy to pick it up and hold. The cap on the bottle is dark blue. The label shows a glass ant it is written on it: Sainsbury's dishwasher powder lemon. There are 3 kg of dishwasher powder in it and costs 6.35 pounds. As mine lasts for 3 months now and at least 1/3 is still left in the bottle I say it is a bargain. The powder has lemon scent, it is white and a big proportion of it is made up of little granules but a smaller part is fine powder already. I use as much as my dishwasher's container says (about two tablespoons). It is easy to pour I never overfilled it.
Sainsbury's Lemon Dishwasher Powder contains amongst other ingredients: >30% Phosphates. 5-15% Oxygen Based Bleaching Agent. <5% Nonionic Surfactants. Contains Enzymes and Perfume.
- lasts long
- it cleans well
- a small quantity is enough
- I like the bottle as keeps the powder dry
- easy to pour
- the cap can be opened very difficultly (children safe)
Despite that I can hardly open the cap I think this bottle wrapper is very convenient. I like that the dishwasher powder remains dry in it and it is easy to pour in the dishwasher. The cap actually is made children safe so you have to push by two fingers and open at the same time. I had a surgery on my hand so probably this problem occurs only at me. I think this is a brilliant dishwasher powder that leaves my dishes clean and spotless. I'm absolutely satisfied with it and I don't think I will try another one. It lasts really long. The plastic bottle and the cap are recyclable. The product was made in the UK. I recommend you trying it.
