Surf Small & Mighty Tropical
Advantages: lovely scent, good cleaning
Disadvantages: none really
I was in Tesco a couple of months ago when I spotted a great deal on the shelf. It was a huge three litre bottle of the Surf small and mighty liquid detergent with the tropical flowers and ylang ylang scent. This huge bottle was selling for around £6 I believe and for this price I was getting 85 washes! I snapped the bottle off the shelf immediately and took the bottle home.
The product comes in a white bottle with a pink cap. This particular bottle has a carry handle as it is so big! On the front of the bottle is a label with the surf logo and lots of pretty pink flowers. We are told that the mega pack will give us 85 washes and that the detergent is 2x concentrated than the normal ranges. This contributes to the cleaner planet plan as the range uses half the water to make it, half the volume of packaging and half the lorries to deliver it meaning we can feel good about making this purchase. The product also claims to work as well in cold water but I cannot really comment on this as I did not use it in this way.
When you remove the lid of the product immediately you are hit with a sweet smell which I wouldn't describe as floral but I would say is quite summery and probably tropical! I really do like the scent of this product and I enjoyed using it to wash our clothes. Each wash load needs just one small capful of the product to wash your clothes well. I found that this amount was great and I could still smell the scent on our clothes when the washer finished. What I found particularly nice was when I had to use my radiators to dry the clothes afterwards and the sweet scent would fill the house!
I found that this detergent did a good job of cleaning mine and my son's clothes and for the most part removed any stains that were on the clothes. Tougher stains needed to have some extra attention but I have found this with all detergents that I have tried so far to be honest. My son can sometimes suffer from dry skin but this detergent did not affect his skin in any way which is a very positive thing for me and it means I will use this product again in the future.
I really do recommend this product as I feel it has such a lovely scent and I will certainly purchase it again should I see it on offer! This is not taking anything away from the product as I just always tend to buy my washing detergents when they are on offer as they are an essential item but always so expensive!
I give this product a full 5 stars! It gives good cleaning results, a nice scent and often has a very good price!
Thank you for reading my review!
Summary: Great if you can get it on offer!
