We were recently sent a sample of Halo Laundry Liquid to test and review. I was interested in the product as it was advertised as being environmentally friendly and suitable for sensitive skin so of course it was right up my street. That and the fact that I do have a magicwhich never seems to be empty!
The liquid is advertised as being ‘the worlds first non bio laundry liquid that is scientifically proven to kill hospital super bugs even at 30 degrees’. Great news for those of us that like to wash at lower temperatures. You can see details of the bacteria and viruses that the liquid can tackle here, and it’s a pretty reassuring list. The product is environmentally friendly in that it works at low temperatures and produces very little foam. The ingredients are suitable for those with sensitive skin so perfect for babies and young children, or those with skin conditions.
So how did it perform for us?
We used the liquid on every type of wash. Whites, dark colours, cotton, synthetics and even cloth nappies. Every wash came out looking great and smelling great. We had no problems with stains even at 30 degrees and the clothes came out smelling nice and fresh. When using them to wash cloth nappies we used just half of the recommended amount and the nappies came out clean, with no stains. We did do the occasional nappy wash at 30 degrees (would normally do this at 40) and they were just as clean.
I would definitely recommend this product for washing cloth nappies, I found the nappies rinsed much better than with other detergents I have used. I understand that this product is now stocked in over 500 Tescos stores which is great news, I’m sure it will become very popular.
