Product Review: These budget-friendly liquid capsules from Lidl are the joint-cheapest on test, but they could prove to be a false economy if they don’t clean properly. Lidl is a bit of a trek and the bottle is heavy, but next time I'm out that way I intend stocking up. My son also has sensitive skin and he has had no reactions. OWN BRAND: Lidl Formil Washing Powder (Colour/2-in-1/non bio), £6.19 for 4.875kg. So let’s take a look at the store brand offerings: Tandil Premium Original Laundry Detergent. VERDICT: My favourite brand Persil costs 24p per wash - and is worth every penny. For example, we now can't get hold of their good W5 eco dishwasher tablets. Whent shopping yesterday, and got to Lidl. This liquid is far better than some of the more expensive brands. Why you ask, because swedish CR listed Lidl Formil color the best detergent they ever tested. The Aldi non bio washing concentrated liquid is fab it has won good housekeeper awards it is cheap to at £2 a pop, I also buy Aldi's fabric softner which leaves the clothes smelling lovely, this is about £1. [editor's note: a similar tale resulted in a similar acquisition of 3L of Formil Biological Washing Liquid.] I have tried their other brand, dont remember name now and liked it. Effective at low temperatures: Liquid detergents can be used for washing at low temperatures as the detergent is already dissolved, so they’re excellent for washing delicate items. It's better than most top brand detergents washing detergent costing significantly less than 10p/load. Today 2010-08-28 we managed to buy some "Formil small & powerful" 'colour' (non-bio?) I use Lidl Formil Colour (powder) for everything and it's not highly perfumed. I wouldnt use the powder, it makes white streaks on darker clothes. The Tandil brands can be a little confusing, because their names are so similar, so making note of the color-coding and reading the packaging carefully is a good idea. The colour … I went to Lidl last weekend and they had none of the colour liquid left - I haven't tried the whites version yet - ended up buying Ariel Colour Gel in Waitrose reduced to £3, not my first choice. I did not need any color detergent in powder, but needed for whites. This is a red 100-ounce bottle that claims it is good for 64 loads. Good for coloured clothes: They’re also great at keeping coloured clothes bright and vibrant, as they don’t contain any bleach. I have used the Formil liquid detergent on whites and I am greatly impressed. Lidl has unashamedly sporadic availability of particular products. Synonymous, I too was pleased to have made my washing machine last many years. I also wash regularly at 60℃ for cottons and 40℃ for synthetics, always choosing very low temperature cycles can lead to smelly washing machines. The 10 best laundry detergents to buy in the UK.
