I am taking part in a trial for Fairy Platinum Dishwasher Tablets. These tablets are different from other dishwasher tablets because they clean your dishes AND your Dishwasher!
The first thing I did when I received my pack was clean my dishwasher filter. (I’ll be honest, I don’t do this as often as I should, but it was cleaned before I first tried the Platinum tablets). The dishwasher itself was looking a little grubby, but not too bad. I usually use a dishwasher cleaning liquid once a week, so it never gets too dirty.
After using the tablets for a week, my findings are as follows:
Dishes: As clean as usual (we use a rival brand usually, and the dishes were just as squeaky clean using both products).
Dishwasher: Definitely looking much cleaner than usual! I won’t need to buy or use the cleaning liquid I usually buy if it carries on like this!
Scent: Every morning when I open the dishwasher, it smells squeaky clean, lemony fresh. This is a refreshing change for me! After 3 years with a Dishwasher, I have never noticed a scent when I open the dishwasher.
Filter: See for yourself! Here is the filter 1 week on….
98% empty! Now our filter never gets horribly clogged, I’ll grant you.
But there is usually a creamy coating on it – there are only tiny traces of this today.
(Visible in the bottom-right corner of the filter).
The tablets are not cheap, I’ll be honest! They have an RRP of £10.20 for 30, but they are currently half price at Tesco until 24th June.
Would I recommend the tablets? YES.
Would I buy them myself? If the price was right.
Would I pay full price for them? NO.
I have awarded the tablets 4 out of 5 based on the RRP as the price is just too expensive in my opinion. The price is in line with the other major Dishwasher tablet brand, but in my experience, as long as you keep your filter and dishwasher clean, the supermarket tablets do an equal job, for a fraction of the RRP.
This is not a sponsored post. I was sent the tablets to review, but all opinions and words are my own.
