Dettol Power & Pure {product review}

This post is a Product Talk by Nuffnang. I received this product in exchange for a review but my opinions are completely genuine and honest.

Insisting on no harsh chemicals
I don’t really buy a lot of expensive cleaning products. But the one thing I do insist on is to avoid using harsh chemicals. This is especially so because I have a super active and curious toddler who gets into everything… sometimes even picking up stuff from the floor or mystery corners to mouth or taste them.



Cleaning with water and oxygen
So when I heard about the new Dettol Power & Pure range, I was intrigued to try it out for myself. Especially since it emphasises the fact that it uses an active oxygen formula which breaks down into water and oxygen, leaving no harsh chemical residue, whilst killing all those nasty germs.


The range comes in two versions in line with the two areas of the house which require the most cleaning: The Bathroom and The Kitchen.

For general maintaining and cleaning, the spray bottles work well and are easy to use. Just spray and wipe down. Easy breezy. They leave a pleasant scent behind and I feel content knowing that the surfaces cleaned are left germ-free without any harsh chemical residue.

The next part is to put these down to the real test of some tough cleaning.


The Bathroom Test
In our master ensuite bathroom on the ‘his’ sink, there is one stubborn spot of calcite build-up. No amount of elbow grease seemed to have been able to get rid of it.


I squirted a couple of sprays and left it for a few minutes before wiping it down. I had to rub it a little to get the really stubborn bits, but miraculously it all came off… here is the ‘after’ shot.


Verdict for Bathroom Test: 4 out of 5 stars



The Kitchen Test
On to the kitchen. As everyone familiar with kitchen cleaning knows, one of the toughest spots is the burnt grease spots on the stove top.


The general grease spots came out fairly easily. The blackened spots required a bit more elbow grease. But eventually the results were pretty satisfactory. There were still a couple of really stubborn black spots, but nothing I can’t live with.


Verdict for Kitchen Test: 3.5 out of 5 stars



The Conclusion
In conclusion, this is not one of those super power products that magically melt away grease and grime to nothing. If it did, then I would seriously question the chemical components in it. But it is an effective all-round cleaning product that cuts to the chase in getting rid of grime. And because it’s from Dettol, I can pretty much trust that it will get to the germs effectively.

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.
