I've been trying food products in Aldi and Lidl more and more recently, but haven't tried any toiletry or cleaning products (have continued to look elsewhere for offers). I just wondered if anyone can recommend any in Aldi or Lidl.

Aldi's Almat washing powder is as good as the top brands.

Lidl's W5 range of cleaning stuff is fine.

Dishwasher tablets from both are good.

I also always buy kitchen roll & tissues from Lidl.

The Lidl handcream is fantastic.

Their washing powder is good too. If I'm honest I don't think.it smells as nice as some other brands but its ok and the important bit is that it cleans well.

Have you got a home bargains as the Nicky loo roll is so cheap and amazing

I use Almat liquid 2 in 1 from Aldi, better than named brands. Their anti-bacterial cleaning wipes and shower cleaning spray are also really effective.

I wouldn't recommend the Aldi shampoos / conditioners (except for DP grin) but all their face and hand creams, face wipes etc are fantastic. Love their bubble bath too - the slightly more pricey one at £1.50 I think!

Im a recent convert to lidl ceil shampoo and soap. Quite like panten shampoo. Fragrence free soap lovely, non drying

Lidl 5-1 dishwasher tabs, washing detergent from both shops but no it softeners,not smelly enough.
The bodywashes are good, I look for the sensitive sort,dh has dodgy skin, the shaving gel suits too. Tin foils/cling are good value in lidl.

Shampoo, boots coconut and almond. Very cheap, often on offer 2 for £2. I'm considering super drugs coconut and almond though when the boots run out.

Cleaning products, Asda Smart price all purpose cleaner decanted into a spray bottle. Cheaper than chips.

33p Orange shower gel in lidl is lovely.

The Lidl shower gel for sensitive skin is good. I've had to use branded stuff for sensitive skin for years for both myself and the DC but thought I'd give this a go. It smells really fresh and lovely yet doesn't irritate my skin and it's only about 90p!

not really, unusually - their cheapest washing liquid absolutely REEKED of perfume, everything stank. So it is back to the Tesco or Sainsbury own brand 'basics' bio liquid which has almost no smell.

Dishwasher tablets are cheaper in Wilkinson if you've got one near you, as is dishwasher salt and rinse aid.

the washing up liquid is also fine; it is all the same stuff if the bottle is the same shape.

bog rolll and kitchen roll are the same everywhere so you might as well get that.

5 in 1 dish washer tab Lidl, W5 window cleaner lidl, their pine floor cleaner is brilliant and

I'm using the Lidl night cream at the moment and it's lovely. My skin feels smooth and plumped - all for £1.99!!!!!

Lidl W5 dishwasher tablets are good. Formin (think that's the name?) laundry detergent is great.

Toiletries - Lidl tampons - i think the brand is called Siempre - are just as good as Lil-Lets and so cheap.

bippityboppitypoo Mon 01-Jun-15 13:53:51

We use almat non bio from aldi, can normally only use fairy as all my family react badly to others. Almat is the first that we've all been ok with

I really like the cien range in lidl and buy most of my toiletries there. The Cien range in general is a good substitute for pricier
brands.

Aldi face serum, anti ageing day and night cream and their facial oil. They're all really good.

Petradreaming Tue 02-Jun-15 06:16:02

Any Aldi toiletries are great. Their cleaning products also work really well. If you are near a B&m you can also buy the Astonish range. All work really well, their bathroom mould cleaner is better than the dettol version. Neither ALDI or Astonish are tested on animals. So double points for them grin

I bought a pot of the Lidl Cien Q10 night cream a couple of weekends ago - at £1.99 I thought it was worth the punt! So far so good, it seems like a nice (fairly heavy feeling) night cream. It hasn't set my acne-prone sensitive skin off yet. I'll definitely try out their day creams once my current stash has been used up. Also a big fan of the Cien 'orange' shower gel, Lidl loo bleach and handwash - super cheap.

Does anyone use Lidl binbags - any good?

TeaAddict235 Fri 05-Jun-15 16:56:44

I use the Aldi Mega Moisture conditioner, an aussie moist copy, and it's great. I think that it's £1.99 for about 200ml and it lasts ages as it's so thick. If you are on the No-cone bandwagon, it works too due to the low cone content. I haven't tried the shampoo yet.

I also use the lacura facial cream with SPF 15, but I don't like the scent, it's very dated so I use another cream on top to mask the scent.

I like the Lidl Eco W5 washing up liquid in lavender. It does a very good job on cleaning stainless steel pans which I do by hand.
Their Dentalux soft toothbrushes are fine, been using them for years.
I don't like the blue window spray, it has a nasty smell. For that I splash out grin on Ajax Crystal Spray which is non-streaky, good for induction hobs too.

Sgtmajormummy Fri 05-Jun-15 17:26:45

Battenburg I use the white Lidl binbags with drawstrings a lot because they're thick and durable. Nicer than black as jacket covers if you do drama costumes too. Just poke a hole for the hanger through the bottom of the bag.

I'm also a fan of Aldi cleansing wipes and moisturiser. A couple of pounds each. Liquid soap a bit like Baylis and Harding is good too. We like Almat non Bio washing liquid but not keen on the washing up liquid so far.

Sgtmajormummy Sun 07-Jun-15 10:22:58

I also buy Lidl toilet duck/limescale remover. It's so cheap I don't mind using it a second time when somebody flushes away what I hoped would be an overnight soak.
