      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      I was carrying out a coursework study on many different disinfectants, and believe it or not this brand came out particularly high, killing all three types of bacteria I tested on (E.Coli, S.Epidermidis and B.Subtilis) at least, if not more, efficiently as brands such as Dettol and Savlon. I thought this outcome was quite interesting given that this is a supermarket brand!

      Not Recommended

      Tesco Antiseptic Fresh Disinfectant seemed like a bargain buy at the time. I needed something quickly to use to get rid of a nasty patch of sick in the back of my car, and as far as I was aware, disinfectant is disinfectant - surely there can't be a whole lot of difference between Tesco own brand and a big name like Dettol? Wrong again cheapskate Dave.

      A bottle of this set me back only 56p for a 500ml bottle (now showing as 55p on the Tesco Online website). That's compared to £2.67 for a 500ml bottle of Dettol disinfectant, which is probably the best known brand name for this kind of product. I thought I was saving myself over £2 by buying this Tesco own brand instead of the Dettol I had been instructed to purchase.

      I realised my mistake almost immediately, as when I opened the bottle, I got a very faint whiff of watered-down Dettol. When I open up a bottle of disinfectant, bearing in mind the powerful cleansing properties you would expect it to have, I expect an overwhelming chemically-hospital-type aroma to come wafting out. But as I said before, I was sadly disappointed.

      Pouring the liquid out I found that it was thin and just watery as it smelled. For some reason it's a grass green colour, and it reminded me of flat limeade - only flat limeade would have probably done the job a lot better than this did. After use, I couldn't really smell anything of this product, despite the fact that I used it neat. The label recommends that you use it watered down, but I felt that they'd done that enough for me already.

      I poured what remained of this down the sink and returned to Tesco for a bottle of Dettol. I can't possibly recommend this to anyone, it's cheap for a reason. Maybe it does have some disinfectant properties, but if it can't even get rid of the smell from a bit of sick, I can't be too hopeful about that.
