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…

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.
