“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Bleach / Category: Laundry „
I'm very keen on keeping a clean home, I don't mind mess but I can't stand dirt and something I buy every week without fail is bleach. I do like Domestos Bleach but it's often quite expensive so unless it's on offer I tend to buy the supermarket own version. I regularly buy Tesco's Thick Bleach which costs 75p a bottle although it's pretty much always on offer at two bottles for £1.30, even though it's only a small saving I do usually pick up two bottles as it's something I use anyway. This bleach is available in all Tesco stores, including the smaller shops and is available in three varieties, pink, aqua and citrus.
Tesco Pink Thick Bleach comes in a 750ml plastic bottle in a very bright shade of pink. The bottle has the nozzle which makes for easy application of the bleach especially around the rim of the toilet and also has a child proof cap which you have to press in a turn to open. The bottle is sturdy enough but at the same time it's light enough that you easily pour it and 'aim' it where you want it to go effectively. Tesco Pink Bleach has the usual bleach smell which I like as it's a very 'clean' scent although I know a lot of people don't like it.
When pouring the bleach it's a really good, thick consistency. Other supermarket own bleaches that claim to be thick often aren't but Tesco certainly stands up against more expensive brands like Parazone and Domestos. When it comes to bleach I use it for a few different uses, the most common use though is to clean the toilet which I do pretty much every day. This usually means squirting a good amount of bleach around the rim of the toilet and leaving it to sit for a few hours, usually overnight The bleach slowly runs down the sides of the toilet but as it is thick it coats the side which in my mind is what I want because of its germ killing capabilities. Whenever I give the toilet a good scrub (usually once a week) I use bleach, again because I know it kills any bacteria and claims to do so for 24 hours which is reassuring.
I also use Tesco Thick Bleach for bleaching whites, as my partner is a chef and wears white chef jackets. These jackets really do take a battering during work and although I tend to wash them on a 90 wash and have used various stain removal treatments they never look really clean unless I bleach them. The bottle recommends that you use a capful of bleach per 10l of water. However I just tend to fill the bath up with a good squirt of bleach and add in the whites that need bleaching. Tesco Thick Bleach has always delivered brilliant results it's strong enough that it removes any traces of stains from the clothes and really gives them whiteness back. I then just put the whites in the machine as usual to wash out the bleach and they are as good as new.
Tesco Thick Bleach is also great for pouring down plugholes, instantly removing any bad smells by killing the bacteria and in my opinion it helps to keep them clear too. I just follow a squirt of bleach with a blast of warm water after about ten minutes. I also keep a spray bottle with a small amount of bleach diluted with water for cleaning my work surfaces; it's a great cheap standby for if I run out of my usual antibacterial spray.
Overall, I'd really recommend Tesco Pink Thick bleach, it's just as good as the branded varieties but at about half the price. This bleach is very versatile and works brilliantly for everything I've used it for, it's a great all- round cleaner and definitely something I will continue to buy.
I get through quite a lot of bleach as I will usually pour it round the rim of the toilet most days. I have used other brands of bleach but I the one I use most is this one from Tesco. It is 750ml and is currently 75p or you can get two bottles for £1.30 making them just 65p each. It comes in three fragrances, citrus, original fresh and pink and I bought a pink and a citrus in this offer. I would describe the smell of the pink as slightly floral but still with the usual chemical bleach smell.
The ingredients and instructions for use are listed on the back of the bottle and are also in brail and it has the usual child proof lock where you squeeze the two grips on each side of the cap before turning. This bottle is quite a bright shade of pink and I am sure that it is sometimes bought for the pretty colour to match people's bathrooms as much as the smell.
The bleach itself is the usual pale yellow colour and is thick in consistency but it still pours quite freely out of the bottle. When I use it for the toilet I will direct the angled head underneath the toilet rim and take it all the way round. You can see the bleach starting to run down towards the water almost straight away but it does leave a layer of bleach down the sides. I will usually do this in the morning before I go to work and leave it all day, then when I get home will either just flush the toilet or give it a rub with the toilet brush if it needs it.
I have also used it to pour down the plug holes in the bathroom and kitchen to freshen them up and also to help to clean the waste pipes and keep them fresh. You can also use it diluted to soak white clothing items where you would use 50ml of bleach in 10 litres of cold water, however I have never done this myself. I would think this could be particularly useful for children's white socks and school shirts which can lose their colour very quickly.
It is a 24 hours bleach and although the smell does fade after a few hours I think it does aid with keeping the toilet generally fresh and clean for 24 hours and is also helping to kill germs and keep them away. I have used other well known brands of bleach and would say that this Tesco thick bleach gives them a run for their money as in my opinion it does just as good a job but for far less money.
=Tesco Thick Bleach 24 Hour Pink=
I hadn't planned on buying this Tesco bleach, but supermarket shopping 2 weeks before Christmas, my mind was on the forthcoming holiday and I ended up grabbing this bottle.
What I was impressed about was the thickness of the bleach, I loved the bright pink of the bottle, but was disappointed when the bleach came out yellow, pink would have been nice!
Joking apart though, the beach was easy to dispense, and I started off under the rim of the toilet, the bleach did slide down to the water level, and once flushed it brighten up the white of the toilet.
The bottle is bright pink, has the label in it, which gives us information on the product, the cautions, how to use and that there was 750ml in the bottle.
I paid about 60p for the bottle.
=24 Hour Bleach=
The product is promoted as a 24 hour bleach, providing 24 hours freshness in the toilet, I didn't find it lasted 24 hours, but with one toilet and four in the house, I could still smell the bleach after 12 hours so I was pleased.
We have used the bleach, left to soak in and scrubbed with the toilet brush, and the smell was pleasant, a slightly floral smell.
=Used Down Plug Holes=
We have used the bleach neat to go down the plugholes to freshen them up and we have had no problems with this
I feel that this bleach gives named brands a run for their money, and this is one we would highly recommend.
We have purchased this bleach regulary, doing a swop between our favourite brand which is a heavy duty bleach, and this has replaced some of the other purchases.
A bottle lasts us between 2 and 3 weeks, and that is giving the sinks and shower plug a bleach once a week, so it does go far.
I use tons of products from Tesco's own range and their Daisy range of cleaning products are just brilliant. I love the Daisy Thick 24 hour pink bleach they do. This costs only 69p at my Tesco Extra, for a large sized 750ml bottle. Apart from anything else, it's just nice to see bleach in a bright pink bottle for a change, instead of the usual blue it normally comes in.
The packaging of this bleach is great as it comes in a strong but very flexible plastic bottle which is curved at the top to allow me to be able to squire the bleach right up and under the rim of the toilet bowl. It also comes with a very good and highly effective child safety cap. I often have a bit of trouble getting the caps off myself, especially when they are new. The bleach is very thick, very strong and very effective. I use this at night and leave some in the toilet bowl, until I flush the following morning.
The results are fantastic and my toilet bowls are left looking and smelling fresh and clean. This bleach isn't pink in colour, as you might expect. It's 'normal' coloured pale yellow / cream but the difference is in the smell. My usual Domestos has a thick and heavy bleach smell to it, whereas this ones does smell of bleach, however, it also has a slight perfumed fragrance in the background, so it is a little bit more pleasant to use if you are one of those people who don't particularly like the smell of bleach.
The other thing I really like about this bleach s that it clings hard to the sides of the toilet bowl. It really is what I'd call thick bleach and it doesn't just run away down the inside of the toilet bowl as soon as it's applied. For only 69p a bottle I think it's fantastic value for money and it compares very favourably indeed with the branded bottles of bleach.
Another brilliant Tesco product.
WHAT IS IT?
Thick bleach from Tesco that comes in a pink bottle.
The bottle is plastic and has got a nozzle so that you can squeeze the bottle and the bleach will go under the rim of the toilet or can be directed to wherever you need it to go without making a mess.
WHAT I THINK
This is very effective bleach. I like that it hasn't got a very strong smell because I have got children so I do not like to have strong chemical cleaning smells around my home. The bottle design is very good and I have never dripped bleach where it shouldn't go by accident and I think it is very easy to direct the bleach to where ever I need it for cleaning.
I use it usually in the bathroom and that includes to clean the toilet, bath, sink and floor because I think it is very important to keep this room clean and without germs. The top of the bottle is made so that children can not take it off but bleach is so dangerous that I would not trust it and keep it locked in my bathroom cabinet when I am not using it.
It cleans stains easily and I like that it can be used neat or diluted because that makes it a versatile product for round my home. I dilute some in a spray bottle and use it for cleaning the worktops in my kitchen because it will kill germs and make it look clean also. It can be used on a lot of different surface but not soft surfaces or very polished areas because it can make marks appear and spoil the finish permanently.
Because it is thick the bleach sticks good to the toilet even if I have not dried it off with a cloth before I pour the bleach on and that is good because it is protecting my family for longer and the longer it stays on the ceramic of the toilet the better it is at killing the germs.
This bleach costs less than £1.00 a bottle and that is good value because it works very well. I do not care about it having a pink bottle and I only buy this because I like the smell but you can get it in different varietys.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
I bought this bleach because it was very cheap to buy and I hadn't bought it before, so thought was worth a try. I also found the bottle attractive with it being a pink colour and my favourite colour.
The bleach comes in a pretty pink plastic bottle, which has a child proof twist top. Nothing too special in the design of the bottle and just the label on the front.
It has a kind of inverted nozzle but it is still very easy to place the nozzle around the rim to release the bleach. I haven't experienced any problems with the inverted nozzle at all.
The bleach has a thick consistency and flows well from the bottle. It has a smooth, soft texture just like any other brand of bleach. It is a pale yellow colour. I thought the bleach would be a pink colour for some reason and was a little surprised to see the yellow colour. The pink bleach name means the colour of the bottle but I didn't mind it being pink but would have preferred it to have been a pink colour lol.
It has the usual smell of bleach but with a little added perfume fragrance which does help it smell really nice and not just the an original bleach fragrance, this one is a really pleasant smelling bleach and one I like quite a lot. Means it helps my bathroom smell a little nicer after I have used this bleach. It isn't an overpowering fragrance.
It clings really well to the toilet bowl and it cleans really well, it whitens my bowl in the way I like a bleach to attack and remove any stains and it leaves it smelling nice and refreshing. I just pour a small amount around the rim and just leave it to work overnight, the next morning I just flush it. It is also easy to rinse when flushed. You don't need much of the bleach to clean the toilet and a little does go a very long way with this one.
I also pour this bleach down my plug holes to help remove any nasty smells lurking down there, I then just rinse it and I just freshens the holes nicely. I just leave the bleach in the plug hole for a couple of minutes or so and then just turn the tap and rinse it. I also soak my dish cloths in a solution of the bleach with a little hot water and the solution just cleans them very well.
The quality of the bleach is excellent and it is very cheap to buy. I paid only 67p for a 750ml bottle, for this price I think it is very good value for the money. It is so affordable for any budget in my opinion and a good one if you are wanting to drop a brand and save a little money. I don't think you would be disappointed in the way this one works for removing stains etc.
I have poured a little in hot water to clean my floors and it has cleaned them very well and removed any stubborn stains on the floors. With this bleach because it has a little added perfume fragrance, the rooms do smell a little nicer and they don't have that bleach smell like an original smell of bleach.
It kills germs and bacteria really well and whitens the toilet bowl and sink. In my opinion this one works just as effectively as a branded bleach and I am extremely happy with the results. It is very good to know that this one does kill germs really well too and kill bacteria to leave my home as germ free as possible. I will most certainly buy his bleach again in the future because it cleans my toilet in the way I expect a shops own brand to clean it and it is a good price too and cheap enough to buy and help me save a little bit more money on my shopping bill.
The bottle is also recyclable after use too.
I highly do recommend this bleach from Tesco and I will most certainly buy it again in the future. A cheap bleach which works a treat around my home and you just cannot go wrong with the price of this one.
Also on Ciao under my username pinky50.
I give this bleach 5 stars.
Thank you for reading my review and I hope it has been of some help.
I am on a cost cutting mission what with the upcoming christmas period upon us and so getting things for cheaper where I can means more money to spend on presents! So when I saw this bottle of bleach in Tesco today for only 60p for a 750ml bottle there was no way I could resist. Especially after I read such good reviews about it on here already!
The 750ml bottle looks similar to mainstream brands of bleach as it has a protruding lid and has a red resealable cap. The plastic bottle is bright pink and as expected with these products, it has a child proof lid system whereby you have to squeeze it at certain pressure points and turn it to be able to open the lid effectively. This is good as although I keep my cleaning products out of sight you never know what may happen one day!
The bleach itself is a thick clear liquid, and I have to say it is a wee bit disappointing it's not pink at all even though I expected it from reading previous reviews. The description of it as "thick" is slightly misleading as I have had a sainsburys brand thick bleach and it was proper thick and substantial. This bleach is not necessarily is not thin or watery in any way but not as thick as other brands so this probably justifies it's lower price tag. I do find the smell of this bleach a bit more floral and fragrant as opposed to the harsh cheap bleach smells other budget bleaches tend to carry. This is nice as it leaves my bathroom smelling clean and more girly rather than all sterile as it has been bleached from head to toe.
We recently came back from a little weekend getaway and our bin smelled a bit offensive (can't think what we left in there!) so this bleach came in handy for cleaning and out the bin. Normally when I change my bin I always clean it usually with zoflora today it seemed appropriate to pour a small amount of bleach in with some boiling hot water and leave it to settle for 15 minutes before giving it a good scrub. This bleach was perfect for this job and with this bottle a little goes a long way as only a small squirt was necessary to do a good job. I also poured some down the sinks in the bathroom and kitchen as it had been a while since I had given down there a good clean and as this bleach has a 24hr period in which it "kills germs and bacteria dead" I am sure that by tomorrow down there will be gleaming!
I would say this is a good, cheap bleach, as it eliminates smelly odours, and kills bacteria as good as other brand name bleaches. The pink colour of the bottle is a nice attraction and I appreciate this as it allows me to save a few pennies! I would definitely recommend it :)
Up until a couple of months ago I had always purchased Parazone bleach to put down my loo but then noticed a promotion on numorous Tesco bottles which meant I could buy two from the Tesco brand which would work out cheaper than buying just one from Parazone. The Tesco toilet bleach range comes in 3 colours which during the promotion you could mix and match - the colours were yellow, blue and pink. As well as the low cost of these bottles I had my eye purely on the hot pink one to match my white and pink bathroom! I was also secretly hoping the bleach would be scented something pleasant and girly and would have a pink tint to the colour - although that is asking a lot!
The total contents for this bleach is 750ml and you get just this size in the three colours mentioned above. The bottle in my opinion is made out of a thin feeble plastic and if you happened to drop the bottle chances are you would have a really bad accdient with the bleach inside - I say this as when you grip the neck loosely with your fingers it tends to be squeezed and fold in with very little effort from you.
The front of the bottle gives product information in braille - for those who have sight problems and the labelling tells you the product is thick bleack and is pink? It also tells you the bleach works for up to 24 hours and kills germs and bacteria dead. In the backround it gives you the image of an internal toilet bowl to show what the product is supposed to be used for - and the nozzle to dispense the bleach under the childproof lid is also shaped on a slant to make dispensing into a toilet bowl much easier. As with other bleachs the childproof lock works very well and is the type where you need to squeeze the lid with two fingers
Due to the shape of the dispenser the main reason for use of this particular bleach from the Tesco range is for on toilets as mentioned above and also sinks and basins - and instructions for all types of use are given on the back label. As with all bleach this is an irritant and does go on to give the usual warnings and safety instructions for this product.
Sadly my high expectations of the bleach itself were not met when I was expecting a pink tint coloured bleach, nice scent and thick as the packaging promises... The bleach itself is quite watery in comparrison to Domestos - is in no way pink, in fact it comes in the normal yellow colour you often see in all other bleachs... and smells just like a regular bleach... So the only benefit of me having the pink bottle over the yellow or blue is the fact that it matchs my bathroom and thats it. I have since tried the blue and yellow ones and the scents and appearance of the bleach in each of them is no different.
Generally I use this bleach to pour around the toilet rim last thing at night to keep germs and the likes at bay. The nozzle on the bottle is easy to use works in the sense that it doesn't cause a mess. I am very dissaapointed that it claims to be a thick bleach when its actually very thin - and normal appearance and smell is a bit of a let down as well as I was expecting something a bit more girly!
However I do like the bottle colour which looks great in my bathroom (for a bleach!) and I guess you can't expect too much from a cheap bleach from a supermarket brand. I can't comment on how effective the bleach is at keeping germs at bay without using magnifying equipment but does seem to help keep the loo clean.
Would recommend to all - to me it works just as well as the higher priced bleaches. However I am marking this down to a 4 star as Tesco claimed this to be thick bleach - which it isn't - so I think it would be a huge dissapointment buying this when you actually needed something thick - the packaging is misleading.
The normal RRP on these bleaches in the Tesco range are 85p normally but are currently on a price drop at 60p each
Although I love Domestos Bleach, as a student and now saving for my wedding next year, I'm always looking for ways to save money. I get my shopping delivered from Tesco now at university so have been trying a whole range of Tesco's own branded products. One of the first things to be cut down on was cleaning products so I looked for a cheaper bleach.
The product that I chose to try was Tesco Thick Bleach 24 Hour (Pink). As you can probably tell from the pink description, this comes in a pink plastic bottle while other Tesco bleaches come in different coloured bottles. I really liked the idea of a pink bottle mainly as my things in the bathroom are pink and this way it would match. I'm sure my flatmate wouldn't care about this though. I wanted something that would last a long time but still do the job it is supposed to. As this is a Tesco product, it can only be found in store on online. For just 60p, you can get a 750ml bottle which is quite large and should last any household a decent amount of time.
The cap on this bottle is childproof so getting into it is sometimes a bit tricky, even for an adult. The best way to do this is to put the bottle down on a flat surface, squeeze in either side of the cap and then unscrew... then it will be ready for using. I generally use bleach in my bathroom and for the toilet but nowhere else in the house. This bleach claims to kill germs and bacteria dead but doesn't say much about the 24 hour thing. I assume it means that germs will continue to be killed for 24 hours but there is no way of proving this really.
There are many ways to use bleach but the main thing I use it for is cleaning toilets. I always use bleach neat in the toilet and just put enough around the rim and then give it a clean with a brush. However, if you are using this for things like cleaning walls or soaking white clothes, you will need to dilute the bleach before use. If you don't do this, there is risk of ruining your clothes or having a bad reaction to the bleach on your skin. If I am cleaning my bath, shower and tiles with bleach, I tend to get a big bucket filled with hot water and just squirt a bit of bleach in there and give it a good mix before using.
This Tesco bleach is about on par with other leading brands which do cost more money. I don't think that it is any better or worse than Domestos but it is cheaper. Due to the cost, I think I will be sticking with Tesco bleach from now on instead of paying more than I need to.
There are certain things that I just refuse to scrimp on but there are loads of other things that I personally believe the cheaper products are just as good. Tesco do their own brand of bleach that sits somewhere above the value range but below the branded range. In terms of quality though it more than matches the more expensive branded bleaches.
The Tesco pink bleach is just as good as Domestos or other more expensive brands I have used but it is a lot cheaper. It costs just 60 pence for a 750ml of bleach and instead the bleach is a nice thick consistency and not watery and thin.
It isn't actually as horrible smelling as some other bleach but it does have the usual bleach smell to it which isn't particularly pleasant smelling but it is comforting at the same time knowing that it is killing germs.
It can be used for a variety of different purposes but the main thing I use it for is cleaning. It does a great job of cleaning my toilet and works wonders at removing tea stains from cups. I also use it on the floor by diluting it in water and using a mop.
It is not the kindest thing to get on your skin as it causes mine to itch and go red so I always make sure that I try and wear gloves when using it. As with all bleach you need to make sure that you don't get it in your eyes etc but this is just common sense. It also has a safety cap which is not the easiest one to remove so is good for making sure that kids don't get in to it and try and swallow it as I can imagine the pink bottle might be a little bit tempting to children.
As I mentioned at the beginning this bleach is just as good as other more expensive branded bleach but it is much better value. It is just as thick and you can see the difference between this and the everyday value bleach. It does a great job of cleaning and I really can't find fault with it.
This is a review of Tesco Thick Bleach 24 Hour Pink which we have been using as a toilet bleach recently. I am a sucker for anything pink generally, so when it comes to buying boring items like household cleaning product, I am drawn to the pink of this bottle!
The purchase decision
I recently reviewed the Domestos blue thick bleach which we use for cleaning but for toilets, I prefer a bottle with a nozzle that I can use quickly and easily, not coming in to contact with the product or having to touch the toilet particularly and usually there is not time to put on the rubber gloves so this product is perfect for that. I also didn't want to spend a lot as you are just chucking it down the drain literally so no point in paying twice as much for the same product.
What I like about this pink bleach from Tesco is how thick it is. It is a light yellow colour at first so you can see that you are coating the toilet bowl when you squirt it in. It does sink in to the water in the base of the toilet eventually and then the liquid makes the white sparkling in the toilet. Obviously a toilet will require scrubbing on regular occasion to get it properly clean but this is a quick fix in between when you don't have time to don the rubber gloves.
Packaging and price
The bottle is a bright pink plastic (recyclable) and 750ml in size. This is just the right size to store without it being in the way. A bottle costs just 60p but I have seen them on offer on occasion at two for a pound and you can get clubcard points with your purchase too.
I always keep one by the toilet (might have to change this as our daughter becomes more independent and we actually trust her to be on her own!) and a couple under the sink in the kitchen so I never run out. I think that the 24 hour premise of this bleach does not really seem long enough, I can't say that I bleach the loo every day but I do it at least twice a week. You can clean with this bleach and use it with laundry but I have never tried this, we stick to using it down the toilet and plug in the sink or drain in the shower only.
I think this is good for the money and it gives me peace of mind that my toilets are nice and clean. It has that usual bleach smell that to me smells really nice and I much prefer this to scented varieties of toilet cleaner. A bottle lasts around a month per toilet which I think is fine although I may use a little more than I need to each time just so I know all areas have been covered. We have never had any problems when using this bleach and I will repurchase again and again in the future.
I like to bleach my toilets every other day just to keep them clean and fresh. For this reason I go through a lot of bleach and if I chose branded bleaches it would end up costing me a fortune, that's why I opt for own brands. The bleach I'm using for my upstairs toilet is this pink bleach from Tesco.
The bleach comes a 750ml bottle. It's mainly pink in colour (obviously) and has all of the relevant information on the label including safety information. The bleach is available to purchase from Tesco in store or online for 60p.
As with all bleach products, the cap is actually a safety cap to stop young hands from trying to get it off. To remove it you have to push in each side of the lid then twist off. It is quite tough to do but this isn't a problem as it's reassuring that my daughter wouldn't be able to open this herself. The pink in the product name doesn't apply to the colour of the bleach, it's simply named pink bleach as the bottle is totally pink, I don't see why Tesco would need to add this into the product name.
To use the bleach you just squeeze the bottle towards the surfaces you want to use it on, the toilet bowl in my case. The bleach is a clear colour with a slight tinge of a musty colour so you can see where you have squirted the bleach. It has the normal smell you associate with bleach but this stench soon starts to go after you have finished cleaning.
I find the bleach easy to squirt around my toilet bowl as the end of the bottle of bleach has a curve on it so I can squirt it right on the top of my toilet bowl with ease. The consistency of the bleach is quite runny, but it still takes some time to run to the bottom of the bowl so it isn't as runny as water. The bleach does leave my toilet looking sparkling so I am reassured it really does work.
I'd definitely recommend this Tesco pink bleach, at only 60p it is a lot cheaper than branded bleaches and does exactly the same job of cleaning my toilets well. Why go and spend more when this does the job just as good?!
One cleaning item that I don't use very often in my house is bleach however I do occasionally like to give my house a really good deep clean and then I will use bleach.
Bleach is available from many different brands and sold in many different places, I picked this one up in my local Tesco when I had popped in a for a quick top up shop and saw it was a decent price at just over 60p and I knew I was about to deep clean the house. I don't even like to keep bleach in the house unless I am actually about ready to use it as we have heard so many horror stories about bleach at work.
The bleach comes in a bright pink plastic bottle which thinking about it later was probably a bad colour to buy really as I feel it would interest my children if they saw it. On the top of the bottle there is a screw top cap which is a safety cap so children should not be able to open it and to be honest at first opening the bottle was quite stiff. There is a label on the front of the bottle which displays the name of the product and a picture of a drain, on the back of the bottle you get the list of warning which always go along with bleach such as it mustn't be drunk or mixed with other products.
On opening the bottle the bleach smell is evident, I actually quite like the smell of bleach when it has been used for cleaning but not when smelling it neat from a bottle. The liquid is quite thick which was great as I thought it may be a thin poor product for the price so was pleasantly surprised.
I used the bleach on my bathroom fixtures and it brings them up really clean, it is a slight yellow colour and so you can see where you have put the bleach and therefore make sure you have rinsed it all away safely. I also like to use bleach to put down my plug holes and this is really easy to so as the bottle has a little nozzle on it and the bottle is soft enough that you are able to squeeze out the bleach easily.
I would say this bleach is a really good product, it leaves my fixtures and fittings looking sparkling and everything smelling fresh, it's also a really good price and well worth what I paid for it. The only thing with bleach is that I am fanatical to make sure it is rinsed away properly and whatever you do make sure you do not mix it with anything the cleaner at work used bleach down the toilet and a toilet cleaner around the rim and the 2 mistakenly mixed and the fumes were horrendous.
One item that I use near enough on a daily basis is bleach. I am very OCD when it comes to cleaning and on a daily basis will bleach my sink, draining board, toilets, drains etc. Yes, it is a bit over the top but for someone who suffers with OCD it is a habit that is incredibly controlling. Therefore, my bleach addiction is quite expensive so I will always try cheaper alternatives in the hope that they will do just a good a job as the leading brands.
In my local Tesco recently I was stocking on cleaning products when there I was faced with my bleach selection. I ended up purchasing Tesco Thick Bleach 24 Hour Pink. Now my OCD really comes into play as not only is it bleach but one of the bottles will have to be stored in my en suite which is white with plum and fuschia pink add ins such as towels etc. Thus my need for the pink bleach yes a bit strange but I could not have a blue bottle of bleach in my en suite it would simply make me incredibly uncomfortable.
At 60p per bottle this was an incredibly decent buy considering the leading brands of bleach retail at over £1.00 and the bottle would probably last me a week as I'd be using it in the en suite and family bathroom. Tesco's own brand of bleach doesn't vary in terms of what it can be used for and I do find bleach incredibly useful when putting down plugholes, unblocking drains if unpleasant smells start to appear as well as bleaching white clothes and swilling round basins, toilet bowls etc to keep germs at bay.
Tesco Thick Bleach 24 Hour Pink comes in a large bright pink bottle which is made of a heavy duty plastic and isn't see through at all. It has a blue label which gives the product name together with the Tesco logo and an image of a drain. On the back there are strict warnings which should be adhered to such as it isn't for human consumption, be careful not to get it on the skin etc. There is also a lot of information on how to use the bleach together with what you can use bleach on/for which is actually quite useful. The bleach bottle does have a safety cap which when being opened you just need to squeeze in the two sides when turning it around to open.
The bleach much to my surprise (and probably naivety!) is not pink in colour which I was expecting considering the product name has the word 'pink' in. Instead it has the word 'pink' simply because the bottle is pink! The bleach itself is a clear liquid with a yellow hue to it so when using it to clean pale coloured surfaces such as a white wash basin you can clearly see the liquid. It has quite a decent consistency, it isn't water thin but not overly thick either but it manages to stick to the surfaces quite well. Of course it does come with the typical bleach type scent which isn't overly strong so once you've finished using it and rinsed whatever needs rinsing the odour doesn't linger.
To use the bleach to clean plug holes, drains, basins etc you simply need to squeeze the bottle and ensure the bleach hits the intended area. There is no need to dilute it first but when putting down drains for every day use after a few minutes you do just need to rinse it down with hot water thoroughly. To bleach white clothes you need to dilute a certain amount of bleach (generally about 50ml) into a bucket or bowl of cold water (about 10 litres) - you should always dilute the bleach first. If you want to soak the clothes overnight you just reduce the bleach by half.
I've been using this particular bleach now for a couple of weeks on a daily basis and I find that it manages to keep everything sparkling clean especially the toilet bowls and sinks which I intend to keep white. I have also used it to keep my sink sparkling clean which is does without any problems (I also bleach all my cutlery at least once a week to and they all come up looking pretty much as good as new!). The only thing I find I have to be careful is when I am using it to bleach white clothes (my other half has a lot of white shorts and football socks!) but it does the job perfectly and manages to keep the items whiter than white!
Overall, for 60p I think this bleach does the same job as a leading brand which you end up paying double for. I have absolutely no complaints about it whatsoever and will be buying it from now on as it suits my OCD needs perfectly and manages to keep everything clean. Definitely a recommendation and I can easily award this bleach 4 stars.

I have only recently started using bleach around the house, before hand I had a huge variety of different cleaning products for different jobs. But a few weeks back I bought a mop and bucket, sick of having to clean all the downstairs floors on my hands and knees with my floor wipes. We then needed some bleach!
I am not your typical girly girl, but sometimes when something pink catches my eye, I cant resist! Tescos do a variety of their own bleaches, but I just had to have this pink bottle, and at just 60p for a 750ml bottle, its a pretty decent price.
The bottle itself is a deep pink, with a red security lid that prevents children getting in, which is a most with bleach. The neck of the bottle is angled, making it easy to use in toilets, too.
The front label tells us it does what pretty much all bleach bottles say - 'Kills germs and bacteria dead'.
The back label gives us details on how to use the bleach for our various needs, and how to undo and redo the safety lid. It also very clearly states all the warnings that are needed on a bleach bottle - that it contains dangerous chemicals, releases dangerous chlorine gases, not suitable for dterilising baby equipment and so on.
My first job, was cleaning my floors. I had already filled my new mop bucket up with warm water, and wanted to add the bleach. I must admit I am bad for not measuring out and just guessing how much I need, but my kitchen, bathroom and living room floors are pretty long so I half filled my bucket with water. I tend to add enough bleach to get a bit of a froth.
Upon opening the bottle, I tipped it upside down and gave a gentle squeeze to the sides of the bottle to add my bleach to the bucket.
Now, maybe I am just being a bit dumb here, but I was actually really disappointed when the bleach came out of the bottle....and it was yellow!!! I had actually believed that Tescos had made a pink bleach! I was left feeling rather moody about this, having looked forward to using my pink bleach only to feel somewhat shortchanged by the mis-advertising of the fact it was just a pink bottle!
Once I got over this and mopped my floors, I found my floors sparkling clean, and even some stubborn stains on the kitchen that I had previously not managed to get off with my floor wipes came up with little effort.
The smell can be slightly overpowering, especially when I get a little 'bleach happy' and scrub every inch of my kitchen and bathroom with the bleach too. My husband has often come in and remarked its 'stinks like a swimming pool', but as I point out to him at least we know it is clean!
Using it diluted I clean my kitchen sides and cupboards, all my appliances, and all the bathroom. It has helped get our white tiles gleaming and works better than any of our old cleaning products, which have now just been thrown out and replaced with this bottle of bleach instead!
