Mothers little helpers,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fairy Non Bio Laundry Liquitabs for Sensitive Skin 10 Washes (Pack of 6) (Personal Care)
These looked like a bargain until I saw the same product in the village stores for thirty pence less for each box. Then again when they were on special in the supermarket for even less. I felt silly and will now be changing my order. Nevertheless the convenience of a subscribe and save delivery is useful, the regular arrival of items used every month can be a relief, when combined with other household items such as loo rolls, kitchen roll, soap etc. Several less things to think about as long as capacious storage is available. With the cost of fuel driving to the supermarket, fee for home delivery, having a subscribe and save could still be a boon.
Fairy is always a favourite with our family as it is non irritating and smells right. Funny how other liquids/powders just don't have that clean, reassuring fragrance. It must go right back to childhood. The smell of a well run home.
Sometimes if there isn't a full load the liquid can leave a slightly gluey residue on the washing, this could be the gelatinous skin the liquid is necessarily encapsulated in. I also wish that the labels would peel off the plastic containers easily, these won't come away tidily. I use the plastic click lidded boxes for toys such as lego, matches, seeds, sewing stuff, and I like to label them clearly.
Because this is a non bio substance it is not so good at lifting stains or creating a brilliant white effect on socks, tea towels, summer trousers. So it has its place and for everyday low heat laundry it is fine. Don't put wet fingers into the capsules as the blobs may melt and ooze messily. Having your washing liquid pre measured out ensures no wastage; I had always been more likely to pour too generously in the hope of a better result...
