Keeping the House Clean with Dettol – Review and Giveaway

One daily battle I have at home with the children is keeping their hands clean.  They are forever outside, collecting mud under their fingernails, or inside using arts and craft materials.  I’m constantly asking them to wash their hands whether it’s after using the toilet or before they have something to eat.  Dettol have come up with a great solution, Automatic Hand Wash.

dettol 2How cool is this?  I just love the sleek silver dispenser and no more messing around pressing fiddly hand soap pumps, just pop your hands underneath and a blob of soap drops onto your hands!

dettol 3This is perfect for my children to use and leaves no excuse for washing their hands.  I know my little boy would often say he couldn’t push the pump down on a normal soap dispenser but with this it’s so simple.  The hand wash is anti bacterial too, just what you need for muddy hands.  Both my children have been using this daily and I can definitely say they have been washing their hands more willingly.  When the soap runs out, you can simply buy a refill pack and it just pops inside, in place of the empty bottle.


I’ve also been liking the Power & Pure Multi Purpose Kitchen spray from the Dettol range.  With active oxygen and killing 99.9% of bacteria, this foamy spray is great for all round use in the kitchen.  This easily dissolves grease, dirt and soap scum, and I’ve had great results on my hob, draining board and around the sink leaving them shiny and clean.

dettol 4Also in the range is a Surface Cleanser spray which has no odour and is great for surfaces you want to place food directly on such as in the fridge.  Power & Pure Advance Bathroom wipes have a lovely mountain fresh fragrance.  They are large wipes and with 80 in a pack will last a while.  These are ideal for giving the bathroom sink a wipe round and over the taps.  I also used these around the bath and across the tiles.  They are so handy for a quick clean and being disposable means they are hygenic and not collecting germs like cloths can sometimes.
