I like to have wipes handy in the bathroom for cleaning the toilet. For the rest of the bathroom I usually use a spray. I saw these on offer in Tesco after I moved in with my boyfriend and thought I'd buy them for our bathroom.
** The Wipes **
These wipes by Dettol are designed for the bathroom. They are suitable for most bathroom surfaces including sink and tiles, sealed wooden surfaces, toilet seats, glass and bins. It claims to kill at least 99.9% of bacteria which you kind of want in a place like the bathroom. They don't leave a harsh chemical residue even if you don't rinse which makes it a great choice for toilet seats!
I have used cheaper wipes in the past with satisfactory results, how did these compare? Well the wipe is strong and I don't have to worry about it ripping apart while I'm wiping. They remain quite moist in the packet and one wipe goes a long way. Though I tend to use two to clean the toilet (that includes the lid, seat and under the seat).
The result is good. My toilet looks clean and the wipe cleans everything in its path. Obviously I clean my toilet regularly so it doesn't get that dirty but the result is still good. In terms of other wipes I have used I can't say I notice much difference in performance. Where the wipe does excel is the strength of the wipe and how moist it is.
My one and only issue with the wipe is that it isn't flushable (at least there is no mention of this). Though putting it into the bin is no issue I have accidentally dropped one in and had to fish it out. It is a minor point only.
** Price and Availability **
I got these wipes on offer from Tesco for £1 for 36 wipes. They are £2 normally from Tesco (0.06p/ wipe). Though I am sure they can be bought from other stores from similar prices.
** Overall **
I quite like these wipes. Their strength is what sets them apart from other wipes I have tried (though they have been very cheap wipes). They clean pretty well but just the same as another wipe. They do retain their moisture and one wipe can clean a lot of mess. You can use both sides of the wipe but I am always mindful of what is on the side that I have just used to wipe. Previous wipes I have used have been flushable which have left me accidentally dropping this wipe down the toilet. They are good to use though. I'd probably not spend the full amount on these wipes but at £1 they were a bargain. I will shop around for more wipes for my toilet!
I always have a packet of wipes in the bathroom as I find it easy to keep clean with these. I am currently using these Dettol power and pure bathroom wipes and will buy them when I see them on offer. The last time I bought them they were on offer at Tesco for £1.50 so I actually bought two packets. There are 36 wipes in the packet and they measure 18cm x 20cm which is an average size for a wipe.
These wipes are said to kill 99.9 per cent of bacteria and they are suitable for use on your sink and tiles, baths and taps, toilet seats and shower screens. You can also use them for glass and wooden surfaces, bins and floors so they really are quite versatile. They contain active oxygen and are said to dissolve grease, dirt and soap scum. They come in a bright blue resealable packet and I find that only one wipe comes out at a time so you don't have to worry about stuffing any extra wipes back into the packet as you do with some others. The wipes are moist without being overly wet and they smell fresh and clean and not at all of Dettol disinfectant which is quite a strong smell. These wipes are strong and I have never found them to split or tear even when I am rubbing in tight corners.
I will use these wipes on the taps, shower, toilet and shower screen and find that they will easily remove any water marks and fingerprints and they don't leave any residue or film so you don't have to rinse afterwards so they really are quick to use. My taps and shower especially look shiny and gleaming after a quick wipe round and look as if I have spent far more time cleaning them. I will always finish the wipe off round the toilet, on top and under the seat and then the rim of the toilet and then dispose of it in the bin.
I have used these wipes for cleaning the skirting boards and window cill in the bathroom and I have also used them in the bedroom to wipe over the surfaces of the dressing table and bedside tables. They seem to erase marks and smears quickly and easily with the minimum of effort. I recommend these wipes especially if you can get them on offer. They are widely available in supermarkets and chemists from £1.50 to £2.40 and I recommend them for a good quality wipe which kills the majority of germs
I am just about to use the very last of my pack of Dettol Power and Pure Bathroom Wipes. There were 72 in the pack and I have found them to be very useful and easy to use. I bought them on special offer in Morrison's a few months ago and have used them both at home and in the house that I help to look after. I am always very keen that the bathrooms that I look after are sparkly clean and healthy and it was the Dettol promise of kills 99.9%germs that attracted me to this bumper pack. Dettol always inspire confidence in me and I also liked the fact that they left no harsh residue and I had read on their website www.dettol.co.uk that the ingredients used break down to oxygen and water so I did not need to worry about bleach when there are small children about.
The wipes come in a bright turquoise blue resealable pack. The wipe is accessed by a resealable flap on the front which has a nice fresh look to it with bubbles depicted on the front across which is written "with active oxygen" along with the famous Dettol shield and sword logo.. On the reverse we are told that it's powerful cleaning formula dissolves grease dirt and soap scum and kill 99.9% of bacteria such as E.coli. One of the best points for me is that it does not require rinsing and so is very easy to use and also leaves surfaces fresh smelling and sparkling.
You know it's clean!
I use them almost exclusively in the bathroom for all surfaces except marble. The wipe measures 18 x 20cm and comes out of the pack easily although I do struggle with it if i am wearing rubber gloves. There is a good amount of fresh smelling moisture on the wipe and it has a pleasant smell, you wouldn't really know that it was a Dettol product. A quick swish around the toilet seat or wash hand basin and I know that it is clean and fresh.My pack has a scent called mountain spring and it is really quite pleasant. They can be used on children's toys, bins, sealed wooden surfaces, floors and glass surfaces so they are quite comprehensive. just avoid marble, brass copper, unsealed wood and unwaxed vinyl.
I am very happy with these and will continue to use them. They produce good results and cut through bathroom dirt and soap scum easily. They have just the right amount of moisture and they give me confidence that the area where I have used them will be virtually germ free. The packet, if it is stored properly, the tab closed and stored face down, lasts all the way through to the end and has not leaked while in storage. With it's pleasant scent it is a 5 star product for me. Keep out of the reach of children and do not swallow!
Thanks for reading I also post on Ciao under splishsplash,
Made by Reckitt Benckiser they are readliy available in supermarkets my pack cost 2pounds for 72 large wipes. The packaging is recyclable.
I don't usually buy household wipes but I saw these in my local Tesco while I was doing my shopping and thought as they were on offer I would give them a try. I bought the Dettol Power & Pure Bathroom Wipes for just £1.00 for 36 wipes, they are usually £2.00.
The Dettol wipes are packed in a plastic bag which is mainly blue in colour, it has the Dettol logo on the front in green. The front of the wrapper also states that these are power & pure bathroom wipes with active oxygen and will kill 99.9% of bacteria. The wrapper also informs the customer that the wipes contain no harsh chemical residue and have a fresh mountain spring fragrance.
The back of the pack gives all the information you would need including how to open the pack, what the wipes can be used on, a few warnings which are standard for this type of product and a small statement about the wipes.
Dettol claim that the powerful formula will dissolve grease, dirt and soap scum without leaving harsh chemicals behind even though there's no need to rinse after cleaning with these. They are suitable for use on sinks, baths, sealed wood floors, bath, toilet seat, glass surfaces, shower screen, bins, floor and children's toys, pretty much everything really.
To open the wipes you just need to remove the sticky cover on the front of the packet and pull the wipes from the opening underneath, the wipes pull out one at a time and the pack can be re-stuck by just pressing the sticky tab back down again, I have used about 3/4 of the wipes and the tab has remained sticky.
There is nothing on the pack about the wipes being flushable or not so I'm assuming they are not suitable for flushing away.
When I opened the pack of wipes I could instantly see they looked very wet, the moisture was clearly visible on the wipes. The wipes are white in colour and measure approximately 22 x 16 cm's, the front of the pack claimed these were large wipes so I was surprised at how small they actually were, I was expecting them to be a bit bigger, however they are big enough. The wipes have a nice fragrance, very clean and fresh and really feel quite strong, it takes a lot to rip them.
I've been pleased with the Dettol wipes, I use them mainly for the washbasin, taps and toilet, they are not big enough to do a bath in my opinion. They certainly clean well and leave the bathroom smelling clean and fresh. I don't use them for a full clean, just when I want to quickly spruce up the basin or loo, I keep them in the bathroom cupboard so I can just have a quick wipe around when I'm in there. They are best kept in the bathroom then if I have unexpected visitors I can pop upstairs and give the basin a quick wipe, they are really good for removing splashes from the taps leaving them all clean and shiny. As I mentioned the wipes are nice and wet and they don't dry out whilst using them.
Now I'm not mean but I do like to get 2 uses out of something if I can, for example I always grate the zest from oranges before I peel and eat them, I just pop in the freezer until I bake and the wipes are no exception, they are really quite strong and if I've used a wipe just to wipe the taps I rinse it out under the tap and leave it to dry. I then use the wipe as a floor cloth if I have just a little spill to mop up or muddy paw prints in the kitchen. I wouldn't do this after cleaning the loo just when I've spruced the basin or taps up. It means I get a bit more for my money.
I would certainly recommend these Dettol Power & Pure bathroom wipes, they are quick, easy and convenient and although I don't use them all the time for the bathroom they are very handy when I'm a bit rushed.
