Dettol is one of those household names, and in my house, it was always associated with cuts and scrapes. But I recently discovered just how much the range has expanded. From hand washes, to anti-bacterial wipes, to house cleaning products… To really test out just how good the products are, I set them work on the flat that we’ve just moved into…
Different Dettol Products
Household Cleaning Products
Cleaning my house isn’t high up on list of fun things to do, and I really can’t stand the smell of regular detergents so I quite liked the multi-purpose surface cleaners on offer from Dettol. The Pine-scented cleaner still smells a bit detergent-y to me, but the citrus one is quite pleasant. It works really well on most surfaces, but I did struggle a little bit with marks on some of the bathroom fittings.
The kitchen cleaner is absolutely fabulous though, it smells great, and works better on counter-top stains than bleach!
Personal Hygiene Products
The hand wash products are good value, have an anti-bacterial agent, and there are quite a few options to choose from. I liked the PINK and YELLOW ones. But the best option has to be the hand wash with the automatic dispenser – no touching the bottle, no getting dirty hands everywhere. I also liked the neat anti-bacterial hand-wipes in 2 sizes – mini (for your handbag) or regular (which you could keep at your office desk, at home or in the car).
Overall I really like the Dettol brand, it’s familiar and with all the new products it still delivers on quality with a little bit of innovation thrown into the mix.
