Placemarking to leave my review grin

Also place marking. Keen to give this a try, non bio is normally no match for my 5 month old. I want to be proved wrong

It was a pleasant surprise when the postman dropped off the Fairy Non Bio Gel!

I've got a wash on now was a bit eager blush

Amazing timing with the delivery this morning! Thanks Fairy!

Done two loads today already, will keep trying it, but my thoughts so far are:

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel?

I love the smell (of all fairy washing products to be fair). It smells fresh, clean and simple

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes?

It lathered up nicely and seemed to produce the same amount of "froth" as my usual Fairy powder. A 60 degree towel wash and a 40 degree quick cotton wash- both times the laundry came out clean and fresh

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin?

Absolutely. Never had any reactions

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel? it's lovely, it smelt clean and comforting.

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes? very well, I was really impressed; I put a load on (a 1 hour wash at 30 degrees) and it got rid of the mud and grass stains from the new H&M joggers my 5 year old was skidding around the garden in yesterday 🙄

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin? Yes. Dried the clothes over the radiator (stuff that couldn't be tumble dried) and in the tumble drier and they feel very soft. I got my 5 year old (eczema & allergies & fussy thanks to asd) hasn't reacted or complained about the pj's I'd washed - a win!

Place marking. Will test when our DS has picked his skin flap and bled all over his clothes grin

Got my sample through the post today but sadly it has not fared well in the post, the bottle has split and royal mail have put it in a plastic bag but have lost most of the contents. Hopefully enough left to do a wash or two .

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Tue 07-Mar-17 07:08:43

Place marking for later smile

yasmin0147 Tue 07-Mar-17 08:15:14

1)I love the smell, it's fresh and clean
2)I have used it 3 times already on a number of different kid made messes and I have to say I am impressed. It's great at cleaning
3) yes I think it's great for sensitive skin, talking from experience and having a 5 week old and a toddler. It's lovely to skin

MrWriter Tue 07-Mar-17 15:26:08

Place marking, received my sample yesterday. Unfortunately it had popped a bit in the post, but it smells lovely and there's enough to carry out the sampling.

foxessocks Tue 07-Mar-17 16:12:02

Place marking going to try this evening!

VioletRoar Tue 07-Mar-17 18:33:20

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel?
Gorgeous, fresh, clean smell

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes?
I wish I could say it was great, but every stain remains the same as it went in! I'm on a crazily hard water area though so nothing ever lathers well!

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin?
Yes, definitely. Clothes were lovely and soft which was great because I don't use softener!

sharonad01 Tue 07-Mar-17 19:18:36

It was a lovely surprise yesterday from the postman! Love the smell already, so place marking for now, I've got s pile of laundry waiting just for mesmile x

duxb Tue 07-Mar-17 21:29:59

Placemarking! Postman delivered it yesterday!

Youstolethesun Tue 07-Mar-17 23:10:33

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel?
Fresh, clean and crisp. Smells lovely without being overpowering
2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes?
It dealt with the stains that come with having a newborn and a 4 year old very well. No need to do a second wash on any of the garments
3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin?
Yes its been great for both myself and my daughter, we both have very sensitive skin and it's left my newborns clothes feeling very soft

duggerlugs Wed 08-Mar-17 01:13:11

1. I tried the product out today on all my daughters baby bedding like cot quilts and sheets ready to sell as she's moving to big bed. The smell is clean and fresh like how I imagine candles to smell when they describe clean washing. It doesn't smell synthetic.
2. I did a second wash of towels and flannels that had been used to mop up and clean up so had various stains on from a 2 year old. All came out without need for stain remover.
3. The bedding feels exceptional. I did put it through the tumble dryer but coupled with the smell which has lasted the day I would swap to a gel instead of traditional capsules I usually use. Great product and neat on shelf.

Mrgoldensun Wed 08-Mar-17 09:42:21

1. Such a lovely smell. We have an own brand non-bio powder at the moment and I'd the smell is much fresher and more pleasant. The children's clothes smell wonderful!
2. It's done a good job. Nothing I've washed so far has been particularly soiled though. However, with a non-bio I would expect to use stain remover occasionally.
3. Yes, items washed were soft. I'm hoping it's gentle as the baby has some eczema developing so I'm going to need to be careful with washing products.

This arrived just as i was loading the machine, so naturally i got extremely over excited and used it straight away. Ds (aged 1) has had pneumonia and picked up a very severe case of hand foot and mouth whilst in hospital for it, so all of that on top of eczema that he's had since birth means that we need to be careful which washing products we are using so as not to aggravate his poor skin while it recovers. It was important for us as a family with a never ending stream of washing to find a product that not only cleans effectively but keeps things soft and fresh and non irritating. A big ask! We normally do a load of washing a day and a few loads on a saturday of bedding and towels.
We normally use fairy fabric conditioner because it smells so lovely and doesnt irritate, but have never actually used the washing liquid so I was excited to see if it matched up to that and my other expectations. I can safely say that I'm converted!

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel? It smells lovely and fresh and clean. Used in conjunction with the fairy fabric conditioner it actually has a very close smell to that of 'new baby!'. I've become one of those people from the adverts that take my washing out the machine, gather it into my arms and breathe in its smell heavily with a big satisfied smile on my face blush

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes? As I've previously stated, we'vehad a one year old whos recently come home from hospital after a bout of pneumonia and who caught a bad crop of Hand foot and mouth whilst on there. For this reason more than ever its vital our washing is cleaned to a high standard. I feel confident that Fairy nonbio has done this, even on a 30° wash. It's also tackled dd (aged 4) nursery clothing on a 30° wash and they've come out CLEAN!

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin? Yes. I've used it on a few loads such as towels without fabric conditioner and have been very impressed. It's not irritated anyones skin or eyes and all round has been a sweet smelling success!

First challenge was blood stained sheets due to DS clawing at his eczema on Monday night!
The gel is scented, usually use Surecare which is unscented, but the gel is quite nice, fresh and not too heavily scented.
The sheets are clean! Faint lines where the blood was but not too bad.
I rarely use softener, and was quite surprised that Fairy detergent really did soften the clothes.
So far there has been no eczema flare ups after the change in detergent.
Not sure about the 'hassle free' claim, the detergent went into the drum of the machine in the cup that was attached to the bottle, which seemed slightly more faffy than sloshing detergent into the draw.
All in all, I am quite impressed. If I see Fairy on offer I will buy it, and probably recommend it to my friends.
Thanks smile

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel?
I love the smell of the Fairy Gel! It smells lovely and clean which is amazing.

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes?
I believe it's cleaned my clothes very well. I even got to put it to the test with washing my husbands muddy running gear (from doing the Devil Mud Run over the last weekend) and it cleaned them perfectly.

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin?
I would definitely say that Fairy is great for sensitive skin. I used it for my babies clothes and my own too (I have super sensitive skin) and our clothes have been fine on us.

hanliying Wed 08-Mar-17 19:59:45

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel? Not too strong which I like. Has a clean smell.
2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes? Very well. It cleaned away the paint my child got from nursery painting project.
3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin? Yes. The Cotten shirt is very soft and no bad reaction to skin.

BillyButtfuck Wed 08-Mar-17 21:18:30

Well I've given it a go after a very messy day making finger painted cards and pictures with our 11 month twins, as well as BLW spag bol and I'm really really impressed!!

1. What are your thoughts on the smell of Fairy Non Bio gel? Delightful, fresh and really 'clean' smelling. Strong enough to notice but not overwhelming or chemically.

2. How well did you feel Fairy Non Bio gel cleaned your clothes? It stood up for itself against paint, tomato sauce, a lot of dribble and some unidentifiable baby mess! Really impressed, I wouldn't have thought these clothes had been worn by my devil children.

3. Would you say Fairy Non Bio gel leaves clothes soft and gentle on sensitive skin? The towels we used for bath time came out delightfully fluffy. Great on sensitive baby bottoms and compliment the clean bath time baby smell nicely.

Strongly recommend!!!
