      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good non biological fabric conditioner

      When my daughter was younger I only used Comfort or Fairy non biological fabric conditioner when doing the washing. As you can imagine, this worked out quite costly after a while and I started experimenting with stores own brands non biological fabric conditioners to see if I could save a few pennies but still get a brilliant result. One fabric condition I tried was this Tesco pure fabric conditioner.

      The fabric conditioner is available to buy in two different sizes, either 750ml or 1.5l. I normally buy the 750ml bottle and it costs around £1 - £1.20. Of course, being a Tesco product, it can only be purchased from Tesco stores.

      The bottle for this Tesco pure fabric conditioner is the same as most other brands as it is made from a transparent plastic bottle. I love see through packaging as it's so much easier to see how much you have remaining. The cap of the bottle is white in colour and can also be used as a measuring device to measure out the amount of conditioner you need. I personally never use the cap and just add it straight from the bottle to the washing machine drawer.

      The consistency of the fabric conditioner is a little runnier than the Fairy and Comfort I am used to, it has the same neutral colour. The smell from the conditioner from the bottle isn't very evident with a subtle hint of cleanliness, that's about the only scent that comes from the liquid. I use a different amount of conditioner depending on what I am washing, if it's just clothes I use less than if I'm washing towels. I find that the conditioner leaves good results on both types of washes.

      Once the washing cycle has finished, when pulling the items out of the washing machine, they all smell clean and fresh. I normally leave my washing hanging on clothes airers around the landing area and I find that the clean, fresh smell does seem to disappear after a little while, whereas if I use scented fabric conditioners the smell wafts around the house for the duration of the drying time. Once the washing is dry it does feel softer than if I hadn't used any fabric conditioner.

      I'd definitely recommend this fabric conditioner if you are after a cheap non biological version. The scent isn't fantastic and does seem to subside after little time but it does leave clothes clean and soft to the touch.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great alternative to the more expensive gentle fabric conditioners

      When I am doing my daughter's laundry I always use a non biological product and although I am a big fan of Fairy products I don't find them the cheapest on the market unless on offer which is when I like to stock up. When it comes to laundry products I am not brand loyal and will happily try any brand in the hope it will do its job. I generally do my main shop in Tesco and always find that they have a lot of their products on offer and I am keen to take advantage.

      Having just run out of my last non-bio fabric conditioner I decided to give Tesco's own Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener a try considering the 1.5 litre bottle was £1.50 and part of an offer with the other range. Tesco do have a decent amount of laundry products a few of which I have tried and they have managed to do the job just fine for me and I have been happy with the outcome so trying this for my daughter's clothes wasn't a big decision!

      Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener comes in a clear rectangular plastic bottle complete with a white screw in top. The bottle looks exactly like any other fabric softener (and exactly like Fairy if you removed the label!). The front of the label shows an image of a baby wrapped in a white towel with the product name. The packaging is very simple in terms of images and the colour theme which obviously relates to the fabric softener being gentle. On the back there is the usual information such as information about the product, usage instructions, ingredients and warnings.

      The fabric softener has a consistency just like water although it is a little bit thicker there is really no difference but then I wouldn't expect anything more or less really. It is white in colour which isn't transparent and again looks exactly like Fairy or Comfort. The only big difference is the scent. Whilst the Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener has a lovely gentle aroma it isn't quite as strong as the Fairy smell almost watered down a little bit but still perfectly pleasant with its clean fresh laundry type smell.

      How to use is obviously pretty simple you just put your desired amount into the drawer in your washing machine. I tend to use one capful per wash as I find that this is effective and I see little point in using too much as it is simply a waste. I do just generally use the fabric softener on my daughter's clothes, towels and bed sheets simply because I don't want her delicate skin being irritated and one bottle of the fabric softener can last for quite some time making my money last longer.

      I always use the fabric softener in conjunction with another non-bio product per wash as I obviously want the items I wash to be gentle enough for my daughter. I always try to air dry the clothes whether outside on the line or inside on an airer and I like for them to end up reasonably soft as I really like to not use my tumble drier where possible and therefore a fabric softener really needs to live up to its name as being a 'softener' as there is nothing worse than hard towels!

      Fortunately for me the Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener does manage to keep air dried items quite soft, not as soft as Fairy but it does a decent job in keeping items soft and supple so I can't really complain. The only thing is that the scent doesn't manage to stick to the clothes once they are dry and although they smell clean they don't have a specific aroma to them but I suspected this when I first smelt the fabric softener as the smell wasn't overly strong. But this is hardly a major complaint more an observation.

      For me the Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener works perfectly fine and does manage to keep the items quite soft although the towels for me could have been a little softer but that's what you get for drying them on a line or airer. For the price it is perfectly reasonable but I would still prefer a bottle of Fairy. Overall, a decent fabric softener which is incredibly mild and gentle and one I would buy again. Could recommend it to all those using non-biological products but due to the mildness of scent and that it doesn't get clothes as soft as other leading brands I can only aware it 4 stars.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great supermarket version of Comfort Pure

      I've used Comfort Pure for a very long time as I have sensitive skin and so does my 18 month old daughter so I prefer to use something I trust and something which is gentle and dermatologically tested.

      However, on a recent trip to Tesco they were out of the usual 1 litre bottle of Comfort I buy as it was on special offer (isn't that always the case!), and I didn't want to spend £6 on the massive version. So I went for Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener as it was on offer itself at £1. I thought well, for a quid it's worth a try.

      It's obviously Tesco's version of Comfort Pure, with the name and with the packaging - it's in a squared off clear plastic bottle with a white cap and a blue and white wrapper with a picture of a baby on it.

      The smell of Tesco Pure is lovely, not quite the same as Comfort Pure but still very fresh, clean and not over perfumed. The fabric softener is a bit more watery than Comfort, which I noticed when pouring a capful into the softener drawer in the washing machine.

      When my towels came out of the washer, they smelled just as nice as when I poured the Pure into the washer earlier, it really does hold it's scent. Even when they were dry they still smelled lovely so that's a big plus for Tesco Pure Fabric Softener.

      In terms of softness the towels came out soft and fluffy, even when dried on the radiator rather than the line or tumble dryer. And my skin (and most importantly my daughter's skin) has been absolutely fine when using things washed in Tesco Pure.

      From the bottle size I can probably get about 20 uses out of it, I think I'll stick to Comfort Pure but as I only buy it when it is on offer and I try to stock up it is nice to know that Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Softener is a good, value alternative which smells nice, leaves clothes soft and doesn't irritate the skin. For my money, the brand leader is thicker and creamier and the smell is that bit nicer but this is a good alternative that I'll recommend and give a score of four stars out of five.

      If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to Comfort Pure then Tesco Pure is a great supermarket version which is kind to skin.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great value fabric conditioner from Tesco

        I have only recently started using Tesco Pure fabric conditioner after reading a positive review for it on here. I'd always used Comfort before and was happy with the performance it gave but a much cheaper price I thought this product was worth a try.

        The bottle
        I purchased 2 of the large 1.5 litre bottles and my first thought on picking them up was that the plastic was flimsy compared to the Comfort bottle. This does make it slightly more difficult to control the bottle when you are pouring it but not impossible and I haven't had any spills when pouring.
        The bottle top which is also a dosing cap is also far more basic than the comfort one with a much smaller top to pour the fabric conditioner into. This requires more concentration but again hasn't caused any spillages. The dosing instructions are on the label and are easy to follow, I use a nearly full cap and great great results.
        The bottle label has been updated from the dooyoo photo above but still has a photo of a baby on it and is a nicer design than the one above. The photo of a baby lets you know that this product is suitable for your baby's delicate skin and neither of my little ones have had any reaction from using it.
        I like that the bottle is clear as it allows you to see how much you have left and you can still see the conditioner through the label which is wrapped around it.
        This bottle is meant to last for 42 washes which is really good value. I'd rather buy larger bottles as we seem to go through so much of this.

        How does it perform?
        If this fabric conditioner had been poured into my old comfort bottle I wouldn't have noticed any difference. It leaves my clothes soft with that lovely just washed smell. It also removes the annoying build up of static I find on our clothes if I don't use fabric conditioner.

        Price and availability
        Available from Tesco stores or Tesco groceries online it is currently (29 September 2012) £1.50 for a 1.5 litre bottle. I purchased it when it was on buy one get one free which I think was a real bargain. The smaller 750ml bottle is currently £1.00, usually £1.20.

        Would I recommend?
        Yes, I'm really impressed that this fabric conditioner performs as well as more expensive brands.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        bargain!

        Tesco offer a range of own branded fabric conditioners which work out a little cheaper than branded conditioners such as Comfort and Lenor.

        ~Pure Fabric Conditioner~

        Whilst many of the Tesco condtioners are regular, scented conditioners, they offer a 'Pure' version which is perfect for those with sensitive skin and most importantly - babies!

        The Pure fabric conditioner is concentrated so only a small amount is required per load of washing. The actual conditioner is presented in a clear bottle which is the perfect size to fit neatly under the sink. The bottle has a clean white label showing a baby wrapped up in a towel and the lid doubles up as a measuring cup to ensure you put the correct amount of fabric conditioner in the washing machine drawer.

        This fabric conditioner hasn't been tested on animals. It is however, dermatologically tested to be ideal for sensitive skin. This conditioner is suitable for machine and hand washing. It is recommended that 1 cap (approx 35ml) is suitable for a regular load of washing. Extra can be added for bigger loads.

        This fabric conditioner is available in a 750ml sized bottle which is said to offer 21 washes (based on normal loads). It can be purchased in store or online from www.tesco.com. It is priced at £1.20. A 1.5l bottle is also available priced at £1.80 and is part of a 2 for £3.50 offer.

        ~My Thoughts~

        I normally stick with Comfort or Lenor when it comes to buying fabric conditioners but I have been quite surprised by the offerings from Asda and Tesco recently. I normally go for conditioners which leave my clothing smelling lovely when washed. When it comes to washing my sons clothing, I prefer to use something a bit gentler. I picked up this Tesco Pure conditioner purely based on the price. I have previously used the Comfort version (double the price) and honestly can notice any major difference between both the products.

        This conditioner is white in colour and is very thin in consistency. My initial thoughts were that the conditioner may not have been as 'concentrated' as Tesco made it out to be - it is milky. In the bottle, the conditioner as a subtle yet pleasant scent which makes me think of baby powder! It is lovely and fresh and doesn't overpower like the more fragrant conditioners.

        I do several loads of washing per week. I have mainly used this for my sons clothing and bed sheets but it has also been used for my clothing and towels recently after I found the powder I was using to be a little too strong for my skin. The conditioner flows effortlessly from the bottle. I don't tend to measure it in the cup to be honest and simply pour and adequate amount into the middle part of the drawer on my washing machine.

        I don't notice a surge of scent coming from the machine during the wash but when the clothing is removed, there is a delicate, powdery fresh aroma on the laundry. I hang the laundry out to dry or dry over the clothes horse. Clothes have a pleasant softness about them - perhaps not quite as soft as when using Comfort but decent enough for us. I really like the feel of the towels and bed sheets after using this conditioner. The towels are always nice and fluffy and lovely to use after a hot shower.

        The clothes smell fresh and clean but the actual scent fades quite quickly. I put all the laundry away and even after a week or so in the drawer or wardrobe, the laundry still smells fresh but not scented if that makes sense. The most important aspect of this conditioner is how gentle it is on the skin. Neither myself, partner or son have experienced any irritation from using this conditioner. We all have sensitive skin and clothing, towels and bed sheets feel very gentle against the skin when this conditioner has been used during the washing process. No complaints with kindness to skin here at all.

        ~Conclusion~

        Whilst I do love my scented fabric conditioners, Pure is perfect for being kind to sensitive skin. It performs well and does its intended job. I manage to get about 20 loads or so from my bottle and at just over £1.00 per bottle, I feel this represents excellent value for money. It is perfect for all the family to use.

        5 stars - recommended!

        Thanks for reading :)

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A nice gentle fabric conditioner

          When purchasing fabric conditioner I now have to look for one which is going to be suitable to wash Jayden's clothes in, I had been using Comfort Pure over the last few weeks as I had money off coupons, however when I did my most recent shop I didn't have any coupons for Comfort so I decided to see if there was anything that was similar but a bit cheaper, I didn't mind paying for the Comfort fabric conditioner but if I could find something cheaper and save a bit of money I would rather do that. I noticed that Tesco did their own Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner so decided to give it a go.

          Packaging
          The Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner comes in a large rectangle clear plastic bottle which has a chunky cream coloured lid on top which screws on and off, this also doubles up as the dosage cap. The bottle has a plastic label wrapped around the whole thing, the front and back of the bottle are exactly the same consisting of the name of the product "Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner" written in purple writing inside a flower shape, next to this is a small flower shape with "For Sensitive Skin" written inside of it. Right at the bottom of the label is written "Guaranteed Freshness" and the amount of washes that this bottle will do. The rest of the label is taken up with a picture of a toddler wearing a white hooded top. All of the product information is written on the two narrow sides of the bottle consisting of what the product does, directions for use, the dosage, warnings and additional information.

          The Fabric Conditioner
          Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner is basically a white liquid which has a runny consistency. The fabric conditioner is suitable for sensitive skin and dermatologicaly tested making it gentle on your whole families skin, this makes it ideal for me to wash Jayden's clothes in as I know that it is unlikely to cause him any irritation. This product guarantees freshness so when I first used this product I was hopeful that my washing would come out of the machine clean and fresh and most importantly feeling lovely and soft, I wanted a product that I could use on all of my washing ranging from our clothes to the towels and bedding, obviously it is important that our clothes are soft and smelling fresh but I feel it is equally as important for our towels and bedding to feel just as soft so for me this product needed to work on all types of washing.
          The Tesco Pure Fabric Conditioner has a lovely soft floral musky fragrance, the fragrance is not too strong or over powering yet it is strong enough to leave your clothes smelling clean and fresh, I didn't want anything with a too strong fragrance when it came to washing Jayden's clothes so this is perfect, after I have washed his clothes using this they smell clean and you can smell the fabric conditioner on them for some time afterwards, however this is not too strong and there is no chemical smell either.

          Dosage
          The different doses are written on the side of the bottle and include
          * Normal loads 4 -5kg - 1 cap
          * Large loads 6 -7kg or extra softness and freshness - 1 1/3 caps
          * Hand Washing (10 litres of water) - 1/2 cap
          Personally I tend to just go for one cap full of fabric conditioner per wash as I rarely do large loads and I find that one cap is plenty to keep my washing smelling clean and fresh and feeling extremely soft.

          Directions for Use
          Using the fabric conditioner is pretty standard for this type of product, you simply pour the correct amount of fabric conditioner into the draw of the washing machine. You must not pour the fabric conditioner directly onto the clothes in the machine.

          Warnings
          Again these are on the side of the bottle and include
          * Keep out of reach of children
          * Avoid contact with eyes, if this occurs rinse immediately and seek medical advise
          * May not be suitable for people with severe skin condition
          * If you suffer with unusually sensitive skin contact your doctor

          Price and Availability
          Obviously I purchased this product from my local Tesco as this is one their own range products. The 1.5litre bottle of cost me just £1.70, I thought this was a bargain as you get 42 washes out of one bottle. Tesco Pure Fabric Conditioner is much cheaper than other brands of a similar product and personally I feel it is excellent value for money.

          My Opinion
          I have used my Tesco Pure Fabric Conditioner several time now and so far I have been extremely impressed with it. The fabric conditioner leaves all of my washing extremely soft and smelling clean and fresh, this product does an excellent job of caring for all of my washing and I can happily wash Jayden's clothes in this product and know that they are going to be left felling soft and smelling lovely without irritating his skin. The fabric conditioner is excellent value for money and lasts for a reasonable amount of time. I would definitely purchase this product in the future as it really does what it is supposed to and is much cheaper than other brands, this is certainly a product that I would recommend to anyone.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I will continue to use this

          We use many different types of fabric conditioners in our house and if we are a bit short of money one month (as we often are) and we need washing stuff then we cannot afford the good stuff, like Lenor or Comfort (though we do use them) and we will buy the shop's own brand. Some of them are good, some of them are not so good, it's case of trial and error, as it is with so many things.

          We have been using Teco's own brand Pure Fabric Conditioner now for quite a long time. A great big two litre plastic bottle only costs us £1.05, which is less than half the price of the more expensive ones we buy.

          The smell is great and very fresh and clean. It is kind to the skin and our little lad suffers from skin conditions like eczema since he was a baby but this stuff does not aggrivate his condition at all.

          The dosage intsructions are set out clearly on the reverse of the bottle and are easy to follow. The liquid itself is quite thin to say something like Comfort or Lenor but it does just as good a job, we think.
          You only need a bit to get great results and we use the cap as a measuring device to make sure we are using the right amount. It is quite strong smelling and it leaves our clothes feeling lovely and fresh and clean, with a great outdoors smell about them. Although it is concentrated I don't personally feel it is as concentrated as the likes of Lenor or Comfort. Even when you've put your clothes away and not used them ofr a while, you can still smell the aroma when you go back to the drawer to wear them.

          This bottle will give you up to twenty washes, but in fact we actually get about a good twenty five washes I'd say and it still manages to make the clothes smell lovely.

          We would both recommend this stuff and it is great if you are on a budget

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          decent value

          I've always used fabric conditioner in my machine when I do a wash, I like to try to ensure that my washing comes out clean, soft and smelling fresh. I believe that adding a decent fabric conditioner to your wash can help to achieve this desired outcome. I usually use a branded version - Lenor or Comfort - as I pick these up when a decent offer comes along but recently, I had run out and decided to try Tesco's own version to see how it compares.

          I have a baby so do alot of washing, whites and lights in particular so I get through a lot of product in a short space of time. It is also important to me that his clothes are soft and clean but do not carry much of a scent. Obviously, I also need a product that will be gentle on his delicate skin too. With all this in mind, I opted for the 'Pure' variety of the range. This is white and creamy in colour. The fabric conditioner is concentrated so you only need a small amount per wash. I bought two 1.5 litre bottles for £3. These are priced at £1.95 each and sufficient for 42 washes. It can also be purchased in a smaller bottle of 750ml (21 washes) for around £1.

          The bottle is a nice compact shape and fits nicely in my cupboard. It is clear plastic so you can see the liquid inside and there is a white plastic lid that doubles up as a dosage measure so you can ensure that you pour the correct amount of conditioner per wash. On opening the bottle, there is no real overpowering scent but it does smell 'clean' in that it smells soapy. The conditioner is easy to pour and non-messy as it doesn't all drip down the sides of the bottle after pouring.

          After removing my clothes from the washing machine, they did feel soft to the touch so I was satisfied that it was doing it's job. My clothes did not smell of anything, which is both good and bad for me - I did not wish for them to have an overpowering scent but I did want the clothes to have a certain 'freshness' about them. I have used the non-scented versions of Comfort and Lenor and they both achieve this. When the clothes were dry they still felt soft and cared for but they didn't have that 'just washed' feeling. The conditioner must be gentle on sensitive skin as I have had no problems with my baby's skin since using this.

          For the price saving compared to a full price branded product, this is pretty decent and certainly does a good job. However, if I can pick up a branded product on offer I would still choose to do so over this.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great stuff and cheap too

          I am a complete clean freak and my clothes get worn and washed regulary. Cos of this fact I am always on the lookout for reasonable priced fabric softeners to bung in my wash otherwise it becomes a costly buisness!

          This Tesco Pure one costing 85p a bottle seemed a decent buy to me and althought I like bargains I won't go for really economy, cheap shops own brands when it comes to washing my stuff.

          The Packaging:

          The bottle is clear plastic with ridges down the sides of it for ease of handling, the cap to the top of it is white and twists on and off with ease concealing a large hole. On the front and on the back of the bottle there is a light blue and white label on there and a photograph of a toddler and we are told that it is Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner and that it is Dermatologically tested 'Guaranteed Fresheness' and that as its concentrated it whould give us about 21 washes. Other infomamtion listed on the other sides of the label includes the ingredients being given, dosage advice, warnings, the size of the bottle is stated (which is 750ml and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way) and contact details for Tesco are clearly stated too.

          Using It:

          Well the softener is white in colour, smooth to the touch and runny though not like water it does contain some 'body' to it. The fragrance of this is simply really hard to describe. It isn't fruity or floral but simply a clean, fresh fragrance that is kind of soapy really! To me it smells entirely unisex and suitable for all the family to use as it isn't a heavy in your face fragrance anyway!

          Dosage instructions are given on the bottle of course and depending on the size of your load we are told how much of it to use. I find for all round general freshness that I measure out one capful (with the one provided on the top of the bottle) and for handwashing my delicates I use 1/2 cap.

          This rinses out of fabrics with complete ease, leaves them feeling free of any residue and rather soft. The fragrance lasts a good few days after using it, subtly and I find that this doesn't irritate my skin one little bit. After using this I am happy to report that material feels great and it is easier to iron and that after using a few other fabric softeners as I have in the past I have found this to be an economy buy (it does last me about 21 washes by the way) but it also is skin friendly in my case and I buy this now weekly! It gets a thumbs up from me!

            When out shopping for washing power and fabric softener I always try to look for those that are on offer especially as the prices seem to have increased drastically recently! So when shopping in Tesco I decided to give their own brand concentrated fabric softener a try.

            Priced at £1 for a 750ml bottle for the pure version I thought this was reasonable in comparison to many of the main brands. Despite shopping around for washing products, I always buy pure and non-biological versions to make sure they do irritate the skin.

            The softener is packaged in a clear plastic bottle made from relatively thick plastic, forming a sturdy container that sits nicely in the cupboard without tipping over! There is a white screw cap to access the softener, which is easy to open and close and remains leak free. The liquid is visible from the outside with the product label wrapping around the mid section of the bottle.
            The label states that the bottle contains enough softener for 21 washes. To be honest I think this is an understatement, I have used this softener for quite a while now and each bottle has lasted ages. I would say we have at least 30 washes from the bottle and that is based on a cap full for each wash, which is their recommendation for use. Should you wish to use this softener when hand washing clothes you only need half a cap full.

            I personally have not used this softener when hand washing, but using it in the conventional way in a washing machine has produced great results on a similar par to the main brands. All of the washing smells lovely and clothes feel nice and soft against your skin. I have been really impressed with this supermarket own brand softener, with none of my family experiencing any irritation from it. I will continue to use this over and over again unless I find a really fantastic alternative!

            A wonderful smelling softener which leaves clothes super soft

            After my last unsuccessful purchase of softener this time I decided to go for a completely different brand and smell so I chose the Tesco Pure bottle to try. I have to say I was very pleased with the results.

            ~~THE BOTTLE~~

            The softener comes in a clear plastic bottle showing the white liquid inside, this is handy as it means you can easily see how much you have left. The lid is white plastic and doubles up as the measuring and pouring cap. The label around the bottle has a picture of a baby wearing a smuggle white robe and the product name and Tesco logo. The sides of the label have all of the product details.

            ~~USE AND RESULTS~~

            It is very easy to use the softener, you pour the required amount into the measuring cap and then pour into the correct compartment in your washing machine. The recommended amount is one and 1/3 capfuls for a large 6kg load, for a 4-5kg load then 1 capful, and for a hand wash then ½ a capful.

            When opening the bottle I instantly noticed the smell, it reminded me of Nivea soap and I have to say it was very pleasant and fresh. Personally I used 1 capful for a good sized mixed load. Once the clothes were washed I was able to smell the fragrance on them, it was not overpowering but noticeable. After drying the clothes in the tumble dryer the fragrance was still present and I really did like it. I did notice how soft the clothes and towels felt to touch and this was a great added bonus.

            None of my family have had any problems with skin irritation from me using this and I have to say it is lovely when they put their clean clothes on and I am able to smell the freshness of the softener on them.

            ~~INFO~~

            The bottle comes in a 750ml size and the front of the bottle claims that this will last for 21 washes, I have used a full bottle and with using a capful each wash I have had just over 21 washes from it so it does last.

            The ingredients for the softener for those wishing to know include:-

            5-15% Cationic Surfactant
            Perfumes and 2-Bromo-2-Nitropopane-1, 3-diol.

            If you want more details on the ingredient used then they can be found at www.persan.es

            All of the ingredients and the completed product have not been tested on animals. The bottle is 100% recyclable and makes a good rocket!

            As with all softeners and products of this type there are a few warnings on the bottle and these include not getting in contact with eyes, after use wash hands and keep out of reach of children and babies.

            The bottle should be stored upright and in a cool dry place.

            ~~PRICE AND AVAILABILITY~~

            As this is a Tesco own brand product then it is only available in their stores. It s priced at just £1 which I felt to be a great bargain.

            ~~RECOMMENDED?~~

            I can definitely recommend this softener as it has a lovely fresh and clean smell, leaves clothes super soft and comes at a great price. It has a neutral smell making it suitable for both men and women. I think this would be lovely on baby clothes as it helps with the 'baby smell'. A full 5 stars from all in my house.

              Snuggly Soft Laundry

              Most of us prefer our laundry to have a fresh smell and soft, which also means less ironing or making our ironing much easier. I also try to be careful in choosing a particular product because my little man has a sensitive skin. I had been using a fabric softener, made for sensitive skin and have tried different brand, most of them are quite disappointing while the other cost a bit too much for a fabric conditioner.

              PURE
              Makes clothes snuggly soft
              Light fragrance leaves your laundry smelling beautiful fresh.
              Dermatologically tested
              Not tested on animals

              PRICE
              750ml-98p
              1.5 ltr - 1.89 any 2 FOR £3.00 - Valid until: 23/03/2010


              This product comes in a clear plastic bottle that holds a white softener. It is concentrated and has a pleasant fragrance which is not overpowering, pretty looks like a thick milk. Definitely a great value for money specially now that they are on offer.


              As you are probably aware about the direction on how to use it, I just want to remind you to dilute the fabric conditioner before use as a final rinse and do not pour it directly onto the clothes. It also stated in the bottle that "There are no guarantees about this product benefits with sensitive skin " specially those who suffered from unusual amount of sensitivity, better check it out with your doctor.


              OPINION
              As you would notice in my previous review, I tried to cut down some of our expenses so I switch to some tesco range in most occasions. Switching branded item to tesco brand isn't always a success but with Tesco pure, I'm definitely happy about the outcome and result to my laundry. It leaves our clothes soft and fresh as well as its good for anyone with sensitive skin which only means that, it is also good for my family. I highly recommend and will continue to use it. It's definitely another great value product from Tesco brand.


              Thank you for reading ;-D

              Tesco Pure Concentrated Fabric Conditioner - For fresh, soft fabrics

              For many years now, I have been buying Tesco Value Laundry Liquid but I have always bought the more expensive Comfort conditioner for my clothes. I loved the way it made them feel so soft and left them smelling lovely and fresh.

              The last 6 months, I have been on a money saving mission and have been down-shifting on as many products as possible. I decided I could make a good saving if I could find a cheaper fabric conditioner. I do have to be extra careful though, as both my sons suffer from eczema.

              I decided to try out Tesco Pure concentrated fabric conditioner. This was available in a 750ml bottle at the very affordable price of 97p, which I thought was great value, as it lasts up to 21 washes. I don't use it in every wash but love to put a capful in with my whites and lightweight clothing.

              Tesco Pure fabric conditioner, has a fresh smell, with a light clean fragrance. My husband and sons would not appreciate a strong flowery scent, so this suits my whole family perfectly.

              When our clothes are fully dried, they are soft to the touch and have a lasting freshness. The conditioner also helps to combat the dreaded static, which some materials seem prone to.

              I am delighted and very relieved to say that my sons have had no new outbreaks of eczema, so this fabric conditioner is also kind on the skin.

              I will definately be buying this again, as it works well and is gentle on the skin. It is also great value compared to a 750ml bottle of Comfort, which will set you back over £2.

              The product and it's ingredients have not been tested on animals.

              Recommended

              I like to use fabric conditioner with my wash, but don't like to pay loads for it! I've found that a lot of the cheaper brands are just as good as the pricier ones, and with a recent online shop ordered myself a bottle of Tesco's pure fabric conditioner.

              The fabric conditioner is called Pure and the front of the bottle shows a picture of a baby, which would suggest it is suitable for washing your children's clothes. It does say on the back however, that no fabric conditioner can be guaranteed suitable for sensitive skin. I don't have children but I do suffer from eczema, and have an allergy to 2 in 1 washing powders, so I am always a little cautious when trying a new brand, and thought as this was more gentle than the highly fragranced ones it may be better for me.

              The conditioner comes in a plastic bottle like the one featured. As it is concentrated the bottle is fairly small to cut down on packaging and save room in your cupboards. There are clear directions for use on the back too, and it assures us that neither the product nor its ingredients have been tested on animals.

              A standard load of washing needs just one 40ml capful, but you may need to use more for larger loads. You can also use this for hand washing, using just 18ml - just under half a cap, but I must admit that I have never tried it this way.

              The fabric conditioner is white in colour and as soon as you remove the lid you are hit by a gorgeous fragrance. It's a very gentle scent, which is fresh, clean and inoffensive. It's also pretty neutral and would be fine for washing boys clothes - I often think some of these conditioners can smell incredibly feminine and wonder what men think when their wives wash their clothes in strong flowery smelling conditioner!

              Given the lovely strong fragrance before I put this in the machine, I was surprised that I couldn't really smell it on my clothes immediately after taking them out of the machine. They did smell fresh, it's just that there wasn't an immediately noticeable fragrance on my clothes as I normally get from other conditioners.

              Once dry I thought the fresh smell on my clothes was more noticeable, and when I ironed my clothes the lovely fragrance really seemed to come out again. It also appears to have kept my clothes in good condition - cotton clothes especially seem to become bobbly quite quickly if I don't use conditioner in my wash.

              It does seem to have been gentle on my skin too and I don't seem to have suffered any sort of reactions since I began using it.

              This comes in two sizes - 750ml costing 95p which will give you 21 washes and 1.5l costing £1.84 and giving 42 washes. Compared to the leading brand Comfort this is really good value. As it is a Tesco product, obviously it will only be found in Tesco stores.

              Overall I'm quite pleased with this product and would certainly buy it again in the future. It's cheaper than the leading brand but seems to do exactly the same thing. Recommended.

                Softner to leave washing fresh

                Normally I prefer the type of conditioner that says "Easy Iron", but as Tesco had an offer I decided to try their Pure conditioner, it was on sale for about 76p instead of 98p for a 75 ml bottle of concentrated liquid which is enough for 21 washes.

                The bottle is clear plastic with a white lid and has a white label with blue stripe and the name Tesco pure in blue letters. There is a picture of a baby on the bottle making me think this product will be gentle enough not to irritate baby's skin.

                Details on the label inform me that it will make clothes snugly soft, it has a light fragrance and leaves your laundry smelling beautifully fresh. Also that it has been tested dermatologically and is compatible with your skin. There are the usual warnings to keep out of reach of children, and to wash hands after use. It should always be diluted and not poured directly onto clothes.

                The instructions on amount to use is in picture form, 1 full cap holds 36mls and you need 55mls for large loads and for extra softness and freshness. 35mls for normal loads and 18mls for hand washing.

                Now where you reading that properly? The full cap holds 36mls and for normal loads you need 35mls, that seems a bit odd to me, why not make the cap a bit smaller! Trying to follow from the picture how much extra is needed to make 55mls is difficult, as the cap is narrow and white in colour, probably the company want you to use extra and so need to buy another bottle sooner!

                I opened the bottle when my normal conditioner was finished and sniffed, Atishooooo! The smell was quite chemically and irritated my nose! So much for it having a baby o the front, I had expected it to smell like Johnson's baby powder! Anyway sneezing fit over I guesstimated the amount needed and popped it into the drawer of my washing machine. The washing went through the usual cycle for Daily wash which takes just over an hour in my machine and when I took it out, it smelled OK. Nothing more, there wasn't that WOW factor, no really lovely fragrance, and after drying inside (it's been too cold and wet lately to dry much outside) there wasn't really any particular fragrance on the washing, it just smelled clean, no different to the towels which I don't use conditioner with as it affects the drying properties. I've used it when washing one of my husband's wool jumpers and all I could smell was damp wool, hasn't dried yet so can't comment on the result!

                Things which I ironed were no better or worse for adding the conditioner, jumpers did feel soft though, and so did the cotton T shirts which can go a bit hard when dried inside.

                Will I buy it again? Well I have to say I don't think so. I prefer something with a bit more fragrance, but if nothing else available at the right price and it's on offer? No again, I'll pay the extra for a nicer fragrance. Sorry Tesco you let me down on this one!
