“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Liquid Laundry Detergent / Category: Laundry „
I'm never brand loyal with household products and often go for whatever is on offer, this is always the case with washing products, and on a recent shopping trip I opted for Tesco Everday Value Biological Concentrated Laundry Liquid, at just £1.60 for 1 litre its certainly good value, I didn't fancy using this on Jayden's clothes and bedding but decide to try it on the rest of my laundry.
The washing liquid is sold in a white plastic bottle with a built in handle, the lid is a simple screw top cap which doubles up as the measuring cap. The label on the front shows the Tesco Everyday Logo and informs the customer that this laundry liquid is "formulated for effective stain removal and the bottle will give you 28 washes". The rest of the label is taken up with little pictures of laundry related items such as clothes, irons, washing machines and laundry baskets, these are all done in various shades of green.
The back of the bottle gives all the usual information you would expect to find on a product like this such as directions for use, storage, ingredients and also a few warnings which are really just common sense, all of this is written clearly and is easy to read.
The actual liquid is a green/blue colour, is reasonably thick and has quite a pleasant floral smell. I was actually surprised at how thick it was, being a basic product I did wonder if it might be slightly watery but this wasn't the case.
The directions advice using 35ml's of liquid ( 1 capful) for one load of regular washing, the washing liquid can be put in the drawer of the machine or in a ball type dispenser directly into the drum. I personally prefer to use a dispenser directly into the drum, I also only ever use half the amount of liquid stated, unless I have an extremely dirty football kit to wash, and I did wonder if this would be enough of this cheap liquid.
I have used a good half of my Everyday Value Washing Liquid now and so far I've been really pleased. All my laundry is clean and smells fresh, as I mentioned I usually only use half the amount suggested and its been perfectly adequate. As I mentioned I don't use this on Jayden's clothes so I cant really comment on how this would stand up to messy baby clothes, bibs etc, but for Marks and my clothes, bed linen and towels its fine.
I have used it neat to rub into a tomato sauce stain on the front of Marks work shirt before I popped it into the machine and it removed the stain completely, neither of us have suffered any irritation from our clothes and bedding being washed in the value liquid either.
If you are on a budget and looking for a good washing liquid then I would certainly recommend trying Tesco Everyday Washing Biological Liquid, for everyday laundry its ideal, it delivers good results and wont break the bank.
