    Me likes that flash gel lemon concentrate and smells nice too :D

    I've still have loads of ecover but next time I'm out if I remember will buy some asda eco to try out too.

    Magnum from Aldi-
    [love it
    ] / as second choice W5 by Lidl, its a slightly diffrent mix from the magnum and eventually stings my skin ,after several yrs though,not straight away

    It is similar but the same consistency as a normal washing liquid with the slip of ecover
    The bonus is it is strong enough to use on its own unlike ecover
    I still add flash as it is turbo power then and i think it leaves a great shine

    I need to find a lidl on my travels
    She can have the w5 to wash up with but i want the bottle for the pull up lid
    As i carry my liquid on my belt i am forever dropping it and breaking the standard flip lids

    Fairy washing up liquid has always been the best for me, lasts days in the bucket (yes I do sometimes use yesterday's water)

    Has good slip and good cleaning power...

    Ecover lemon, Fairy lime and lemongrass, both are great if you add a touch of vinegar.

    In all my years of window cleaning I've never used it, even though I've heard of it.

    How much? Like how much ml of apple cider vinegar to 500ml of detergent/water?
