Product Description

Dettol Laundry Cleanser

When you need to wash fabrics at low temperatures or you have soiled items such as nappies to clean, detergents alone may not be enough to kill the germs in your laundry. Dettol has a number of products that you can use in addition to your detergent to help kill the germs.

Add Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Cleanser to your wash to kill 99.9% of bacteria, for hygienically clean laundry even at low temperatures. It works even at 15°C to get rid of the bacteria that survive and can be transmitted within the wash when you wash at low temperatures. Just add a couple of caps to the fabric softener drawer to guarantee hygienically clean laundry every time. Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Cleanser is available in Fresh Cotton and Soothing Lavender light fragrances.

Protecting your family wash

Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Cleanser kills 99.9% of bacteria, even when you wash at low temperatures, so you can be confident that your laundry is hygienically clean every time.

Bacteria in household laundry

If you wash your clothes at low temperatures you are not alone, with 96% of mothers claiming to regularly wash at 40°C. However, when you wash at temperatures below 60°C, bacteria can survive and transfer between garments in the wash. Experts refer to this as a 'bacterial soup', as germs can spread from contaminated items to other items in the wash, with as many as one million bacteria living in just two tablespoons of wash water.

There are practical steps you can take, however, to minimise the bacteria in your family's laundry while continuing to wash at low temperatures.

Washing your baby's laundry

Dettol family

A new baby brings so much joy, and also many questions about health and hygiene. A baby's immune system doesn't start producing antibodies to ward off illness and infection until they are around two to three months old. In these early days it's worth taking a few extra precautions to ensure that your baby's environment is as hygienically clean as possible.

One source of potentially harmful bacteria is the family laundry basket. These days, the vast majority of parents regularly do their household wash at 40°C. However, lab tests have shown that family laundry washed at 40°C contained only 14% less bacteria than dirty items that had not been washed at all.

65% of mothers say they wash all the family laundry together. Bacteria on baby clothes and beddings can survive and transfer to other items when you wash below 60°C, and tests have found traces of faecal matter on baby grows, baby blankets, and a bedtime cuddly toy after low-temperature washing in household machines.

Items that come into direct contact with a baby's body – baby grows, sheets, and blankets – are more likely to contain pathogens, while recent laboratory tests found unwashed baby bibs contained the highest levels of bacteria than any other item of unwashed baby laundry.

To ensure your baby's laundry is hygienically clean follow these simple tips:

  • If you wash at low temperatures – below 60°C – ensure you add a laundry disinfectant to your wash to offer added protection against potentially harmful bacteria
  • If you wash your baby's items together with your regular household laundry, add a laundry disinfectant to ensure your washing is hygienically clean
  • If a member of the family or your baby is unwell, try to wash their clothes separately with a laundry disinfectant to minimise the risk of spreading any infection
  • The higher the temperature, the better the germ kill; to keep your washing machine free from germs, put it on a 90°C cycle once a month and leave the door open after every use to prevent it from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria

Managing bacteria on children's clothes

Dettol laundry

Today, a reported 96% of mothers do their household laundry on a 40°C wash. However, washing below 60°C means bacteria can survive and transfer between garments in the wash.

Children's clothes and bedding pick up bacteria during everyday 'germy' moments – from exposure to coughs and sniffles in the playground, to toilet mishaps and bed wetting – yet 65% of mums say they wash their children's laundry together with their regular family wash.

Laboratory tests have shown that toddlers' pants, children's bed sheets, PE shorts, and school jumpers all contained traces of faecal matter after low-temperature washing in household washing machines. The tests also highlighted that school uniform and clothes worn by pre-school toddlers washed at 40°C harboured average levels of bacteria that were similar to unwashed, dirty items.

Whilst underclothes, sheets, and items worn close to the skin are most likely to be contaminated with pathogens, outerwear such as jumpers and blazers are most likely to harbour bacteria build-up which cannot be removed by low-temperature washing using a detergent alone.

Here are some tips to help make sure your family wash is as hygienically clean as possible:

  • Family towels and flannels can be a breeding ground for bacteria, so wash them regularly and try not to share; perhaps let the children choose their own colour or design
  • When washing at temperatures below 60°C, add a laundry disinfectant to your wash to offer added protection against potentially harmful pathogens and bacteria
  • If you wash children's clothes along with your regular household wash, adding a laundry disinfectant can help to minimise the risk of cross-contamination
  • If a member of the family or your child is unwell, try to wash their clothes and bedding separately with a laundry disinfectant to minimise the risk of spreading any infection
  • To keep your washing machine free from germs, put it on a 90°C cycle once a month to give it a spring clean, and leave the door open after every use to prevent it from becoming a breeding ground for bacteria

Without access to a laboratory it is impossible to know if this actually works so I am taking it on trust that it does. After reading a couple of online reports I was concerned to read that low temperature washing doesn't actually kill the germs on your clothes. As I wash the majority of my coloured and lightly stained clothes on an ECO cycle that doesn't heat the water at all, I thought I should try using this. You add 2 caps into the fabric softener compartment with each wash meaning a 1.5L bottle should last me quite a while. The smell is very nice (Fresh Cotton) and I didn't find any issue with it, although I don't think I will be trying the lavender.

One small point, don't shake the bottle because it fills with bubbles making it difficult to pour into the cap.

We suffered from foul smelling laundry, a common enough thing if you google it. Extra rinsing, empty boil washing the machine regularly, cleaning the machine, hypoallergenic wash settings, extra washing gel, less washing gel, fabric conditioners - nothing helped. Embarrassing to smell something horrible on the train and realise it's you.

This isn't a problem I remember from the past, and it affected mainly heavy cottons, so I ascribe it to modern eco machines with their low water usage and temperatures; enough odour causing bacteria on dirty clothes are surviving the wash cycle and then have plenty of time happily to multiply again as wet washing slowly dries before you put it on again.

Early days yet, but a month into using this product - with washing drying slowly indoors in the winter (in other words a damp bacterial paradise) - and the problem has vanished. Looks like this is set to become a regular buy. Although it's a shame one has to use extra chemicals to run an "eco" machine!

Flavour Name: Spring Fresh Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I've always tended to launder everything on as low a temperature setting as possible. Up until recently I was more than happy with the results of my usual 30⁰ cycle, until learning of the hidden bacteria that probably survives each wash. As I find my 3 cats regularly lounging on my bed, the bed linen was of a particular concern.

I found it odd that this product is poured into the fabric softener section of the washing machine, plus the thin watery consistency had me wondering if this cleanser could deliver an effective wash, let alone kill all the hidden creepy crawlies that possibly infest my duvet cover. I don't have the lab equipment to conclusively state that this product works. I can state though that its light smell is pleasant, plus it eases my mind considerably that I won't catch some weird cat virus.

I honestly have no idea if this works or not, but I trust Dettol to deliver on their promises. So, to ensure this review isn't wasted, let me review the detergent container itself:

Pearly-white in its complexion, this container appears to have been expertly molded and assembled from one piece of plastic into a curvaceous vase-like figure, perfectly smooth save for two perfectly placed stickers, one on the front, one on the back, with beautiful branding on the former and helpful usage information on the latter. To facilitate portability when being transported from under your kitchen sink to your washing machine, this container has a swan-neck-like grip which just feels natural to the touch, and is balanced such that one can still make a "thumbs-up" when carrying the detergent container (see the picture attached to this review). The screw-on lid requires just the right amount of pressure to open, and seems to close itself as if by magic. Not to be outshone by the rest, the container's solid base ensures that it doesn't scratch surfaces it's placed on, while making a pleasant-sounding "whomp" when being placed on any surface. Basically guys, this is the iPhone of detergent containers, get it while it lasts.

Dettol seem to have a long raft of products and not cheap either. Most clothes these days are on a low or warm wash and most of the time people don't have the time to separate different types of clothes for a wash and they are usually all thrown in on the mixed fabrics mode on the machine unless its obvious they shouldn't. Problem with that is bacteria still remains on the clothing on a low wash something of particular concern with baby clothes or clothes or laundary for an older person.

Well that's the theory anyway but you do have to wonder considering you are washing your clothes using detergent that we are constantly bombarded with advertising saying how clean it gets your clothes why in spite of those sparkling whites and really clean clothes and non mixed colours they are apparently riddled with bacteria that will have un in the A&E in no time. Considering we are already paying a small fortune for washing up powder or capsules softener, whitener, conditioner makes you wonder what exactly do these products do then?

The other thing is the instructions say to use about 2 capsules in your wash or less if in for a soak to get rid of viruses (The two capsules is to get rid of bacteria) Considering the price of these this is not going to last very long if you have any reasonably sized family and will be gone in no time if you have young children who constantly need baby clothes etc washing or school uniforms, sports and gym clothes constantly washed.

I suppose there is no real way of telling if this does the job because you cant see any visible effects.
