Yes afraid they’re on their way out (as you know). The manufacturer is wanting to push people in to the liquid kind which is a shame, as one they don’t smell that great and 2nd, they don’t contain bleach so won’t be as good as stopping your washer smelling,

For anyone who loves these things, stock up now as they’re no longer being made.

Thankyou, I didn't know, will stock up, thanks again

I hate the liqui tabs and prefer the solid ones.
I find solid tablets hard to get too in Ireland, and I don't mind which brand.
When I see a box of the solid tablets I stock up.
Shouldn't we have a choice?

We definitely should have a choice, but unfortunately we’re at the mercy of manufacturers, they push a product that makes them money and benefits them, not us.

All liquid based detergents are cheaper to produce but can be sold at higher prices than powder variants as they’re perceived as modern/advanced product, so massive mark ups and profits will dictate product offering.

Apparently the liqui tabs aren't as good as the solid tablets

No they're definitely not, powders always offer more bang for buck.

I have suffered with eczema all my life & anytime an alternative washing powder is used other than Fairy Non-Bio Tablets my skin has suffered. Now that Fairy have discontinued this product does anyone have a tried & tested alternative. Very concerned.
