Let’s look into the Fairy dishwashing detergents on offer to see how they stand out.
Fairy dishwashing liquid products
Fairy detergents are designed to cut through grease with longer-lasting suds. Each formula comes in a 433mL bottle. There are three Fairy dishwashing liquids available on Australian supermarket shelves:
- Fairy Hand Dishwashing Liquid Original
- Fairy Hand Dishwashing Liquid Lemon
- Fairy Platinum Dishwashing Liquid Lemon
Fairy dishwashing tablets
Fairy produces two types of dishwashing tablets:
- Fairy All in One Liquid Dishwasher Tablets
- Fairy Platinum Liquid Tablets
All in One Liquid Dishwasher Tablets aim to help remove dried on grease. Platinum Liquid Tablets are also designed to clean, but claim to further help remove grease from dishwasher filters. Both dishwashing tablets come in an option of a Lemon or Original scent. Standard sizes are a 24 pack for Fairy All in One dishwasher tablets and a 30 pack for Fairy Platinum dishwasher tablets. Some retailers offer larger sized value packs.
Should I use Fairy dishwashing detergent?
Fairy dishwashing products sit around the middle of the price range compared to other brands. While Fairy does produce more fragrance options than just original and lemon as well as detergents for sensitive skin, these aren’t available in Australian stores. If you are looking for a particular sent or a dishwashing liquid that is gentle on hands, you may like to widen your search to include other brands. Nevertheless, Fairy is committed to producing detergents that cover the basics and leave you spending less time scrubbing dishes. You may also like to consult online reviews and ratings – such as ours – to see how Aussies compare other dishwashing liquid brands to help you decide which liquid to try next to tackle that daunting pile of dishes.
