    Just been shopping at tescos unfortunately. Tescos doing 1ltr £1.50. Not as good at home base but still 75p cheaper then usual.

    Maybe not as cheap as Homebase, but any product cheaper than the norm is worth mentioning I think :) .

    Cleans better then your standered fairy, gives that sparkle!

    Fairy is petrolium based?

    Ecover is environmentally friendly :)

    It can also be used in conjunction with WFP and doesn't really effect TDS that much.

    Try to get the Lemon version, as it has a slightly lower TDS and cuts into dirt a bit better.

    for trad as G said its plant based so biodegradable which is why I've used it since day one the added bonus is that it doesnt leave a residue like fairy. Less turn lines when ya don't fan right.

    I don't think it washes dishes as good as fairy though lol.

    Surcare is good too if you can't find ecover, ingredients practically identical, might even lube a bit better, but got some ecover from morrisons the other day as it was on offer, so will try and gauge the 2 again! Hate the smell of it though, can only get the marigold version.
