“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Fabric Conditioner / Category: Laundry „
Although I often use a 2 in 1 washing powder I have been known to also use Fabric Softener on top as I really like the feel & smell that it gives to my clothes & bedding. My current fabric softener of choice is the Sainsbury's basics one as it is very reasonably priced with 1 litre costing just 50p which is a bargain compared to similar products.
I have found this bottle to last for around 15 washes as I use 60-80ml per wash and I always find this to be ample for softening clothes and giving everything a lovely clean, freshly washed scent. I believe the cap makes you use a little more than is actually needed so I normally just judge what I need based on the load rather than just using a capful.
It comes packaged in a plastic bottle with a screw top lid which also doubles up as a measuring cap and I find this really useful as I can just get the bottle out from under the sink and not need to have anything additional to hand just to get this in to my washing machine. I never seem to use an entire capful but it is a handy way of getting the liquid in to the machine without any spillages.
Sainsbury's basics fabric conditioner always makes my clothes lovely & soft and although I can't quite put my finger on a particular scent it's very refreshing and one that lasts for several hours on my clothes and when I move throughout the day I can really notice that I smell lovely (especially now I've stopped smoking!).
Sainsbury's basics is a fabric softener that I would recommend and my top tip for saving a few pennies is to not use as much as advised on the bottle as I always find the measure I used to be fine & this does not leave any residue on my clothes or cause any build up in the washing machine.
Ingredients: 5-15% Cationic Surfactant, Formaldehyde,Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone,Octylisothiazolinone, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate,Perfume
I am rating this fabric softener 4/5 as it's very nice, reasonably priced and is widely available so most people should be able to give this a try. I am going to be using this fabric softener lots in the future no doubt as it makes my clothes lovely and soft and does carry a fairly nice scent for something that costs just 50p per litre!
Sainsburys Basics fabric conditioner.
Sainsburys now my local supermarket, as have recently moved right on their doorstep, and have quite a bit of time, to browse around their harlow store, and compere their products and their prices.
Their Basic range is just that a basic product, which has a no frills package.
I have brought a bottle of their Fabric conditioner which is concentrated, which means you need to use less because it is a stronger product and you get less for your money, because it goes a lot further.
The Package **********
This comes in a plastic square shaped bottle, and has the product written in the familiar red with a picture of a washing line, with a single sock hanging on it. by one peg.
It states softens no added promises.
The Bottle has a screw opening lid, which screws to the right and i didnt find it too uneasy to do. This bottle is recyclable, use a full capful thats a 35ml full, to a wash load, a normal wash load is approximately 4-5 kg. But you can also use this product when handwashing. Apparently it contains enough for 28 standard washing machine full loads.
I liked the smell it was very fresh and i found that my clothing, especially my towels were extremely soft after i had dried them and i could still smell the lovely fresh smell that this conditioner leaves in your clothing.
The liquid is blue in colour.
This product is actually made for Sainsburys Supermarkets, and i must admit that i was rather suprised just how good this product actually was. And will be buying some more in the future, when i have used the four bottles i recently purchased ( i buy my shopping on a monthly basis).
This bottle contains a full one litre.
This product costs 50p. so i brought four for a mere £2.00 to last me the whole month.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews xx.
If you like to see pretty pictures of clothes, fairies and bubbles on the label on the front of your Fabric Conditioner bottle, then don't get this. However, if you don't mind if there are no pictures on the label but are looking for a quality Fabric conditioner then get this! It smells very nice, the consistency is nice and thick and produces truly excellent results. Clothes are left smelling fresh and clean. It works great if used with Sainsbury's Economy (Low Price) washing powder, also a great product. So the price? 35p for 2 litres! You can't beat that. At least give it a try, and if you don't like it (I'm sure you will) then you won't have wasted much money. I never judge a product by the pictures and huge logos on the front, just the quality of the product iteslf. This is a shining exaple of that, in fact all of Sainsbury's Economy (Low Price) products are good. Go and get it! (Note this product is now called Low Price fabric conditioner.)
I noticed recently that Sainsbury's Economy range now do fabric conditioner and I couldn't believe how low the price was. For the large 2L bottle, it costs 35p!!!!. I thought that even if it wasn't any good, you can't go wrong really for this sort of money. I was surprised to find that it does actually smell nice, is the same consistency as other brands i have tried, when i imagined it to be very watery and it does work in that clothes not only smell good, but feel good too. Good old Sainsbury's get it right again and i will be trying out some of their other products in the Economy range.
This was another of my "bargain buy's", it was on special offer when I first got it and I've been using it ever since! I've always used a fabric conditioner, as I feel that they really do help to make clothes feel softer especially towels! Prior to buying Sainsbury's easy iron conditioner I tended to buy which ever was on special offer! The conditioner, comes in a variety of "flavours", my favourite being verve , its a sort of lemony smell. The smell lasts for quite a while, but is not overpowering. It also makes clothes feel very soft especially towels. The conditioner comes in a concerntrated format so you only need to use a capful per wash, so it's very economical. With regard to the ironing bit, it does seem to make it a little bit easier, but I would not say that it makes a dramatic difference! I want to know when they'll invent self ironing clothes!!
