Review of Coles cleaning products
As one of the leading supermarket chains in Australia, Coles stocks most big name brands, but also has its own private label range of cleaning products. Prices may be cheap, but is the quality there? Canstar Blue takes a look at Coles cleaning products.
Coles Dishwashing Liquids
Coles offers several dishwashing liquids to help get the dishes done with a fresh and zesty scent. There is the Coles Ultra Lime Dishwashing Liquid and three varieties of Coles Ultra Concentrate Dishwashing Liquid:
- Ultra Concentrate Lime Dishwashing Liquid
- Ultra Concentrate Lemon Dishwashing Liquid

The Coles Sensitive Dishwashing liquid is specifically designed for sensitive skin but is recommended to be tested on your skin before use. Two other options from Coles in the dishwashing range are the Super Strength Dishwashing Liquid in a lemon fragrance and Ultra Limited Edition Concentrate Dishwashing Liquid.
Standard sizes are a 450mL bottle for both the Ultra Dishwashing Liquid and the Ultra Concentrate, plus a 1L bottle for the Coles Super Strength Dishwashing Liquid.

Should I use Coles cleaning products?
Coles doesn’t claim to have the most effective cleaners, rather focussing on value for money. The key to any brand’s success is finding the perfect balance between quality and price, with Coles seemingly doing a reasonable job in this regard. The Coles cleaning brand is certainly rather basic, but that may be all you need or want. You may like to have a read of online reviews – such as ours – to see how Coles cleaning products compare with the other brands before making a choice. With prices generally low, it won’t hurt to give them a go.
