Supermarket Own brand washing powder

As the cost of Laundry Products rise ive been testing out some supermarket own brand laundry powders and below is what i think.

Aldi- Almat non bio washing powder at £2.39 for a 25 wash box is a great price. Clothes felt soft and came out clean although there was not much of a distinctive scent to the clothes after washing. Great price and good if your on a budget.
 Washing Powder - Non Bio

Asda- Chosen by you non bio sensitive washing powder £4 for 30 wash. A little more expensive but is ideal for people who have sensitive skin and is ideal for babies as well all know how sensitive a babies skin can be. The fragrance isn't very strong and the clean is ok but not so good at baby food stains.

Tesco- Non bio powder detergent 25 wash £3. The packaging isn't really inviting but the product itself is great! Clothes came out clean and it got rid of the baby food stains!! There was more of a fragrance to this than the previous 2 i tried. Definetly keeping this one on my list.

Morrisons-Non bio washing powder 35 washes £3.92. Again not very exciting packaging, But the powder itself was again very good. The clothes came out smelling fresh and looked fresh and clean aswell, and yes this powder also worked well on the baby food stains!

My overall opinion is that the four that i tested firstly need to update their packaging, maybe a different colour other than blue! But i must say all of them are as good if not better than the Branded washing powders available.

I went to aldi's earlier for the first time in ages and realised what im missing out on! Great priced products and their super six offers are amazing! I bought mushrooms, pears, potatoes and tomatoes for 59p each! Also got some lovely British butchers select sausages for £1.09. Check out their deal on there website they are regularly updated aldi

Hi guys, a lot of people have asked me to look into ways of saving money on groceries so thought i would post some ideas i have come up with.

Printable Coupons- If you sign up to supersavvy they have coupons available for many different products such as laundry products, pet food and nappies. The saving with coupons range from 50p- £2

Free instore magazines- When your in a supermarket always pick up the instore magazine because most of the time there is money off coupons inside. For instance this week i went to Morrisons and picked up the their free magazine and saved myself 50p on yorkshire gold teabags, i also went to asda where i picked up their magazine and i got a coupon to save 50p on clover! (and the magaizne came with a free sample of  garnier ultimate blends shampoo and conditioner)

Check websites- Before i leave to do my shopping i check each supermarkets websites to check prices of the products i need and where they are cheaper.

Also if you shop at asda dont forget to check on the asda price guarantee website as you may be due a refund!This can be found  here
