- Joint Gold – Antibacterial laundry tablets (RRP £5.20) by Milton
About the product: “NEW Antibacterial Laundry Tablets can be used in washing machines at 30 °C, it negates the need for long cycles at high temperatures, preventing damage to clothing and reducing environmental impact.
Perfect for disinfecting all laundry, whites and colours, from deodorising towels and bed sheets, to refreshing grass-stained sports kit, the tablets act quickly on stubborn stains found in babies’ and toddlers’ clothing, even at lower temperatures. Effective on durable items that are worn and washed regularly, such re-useable cloth nappies, bibs and baby grows, and also delicate materials.
The tablets leave items hygienically clean, removing bacteria, yeasts and viruses, including Coronavirus. A pack of 12 tablets costs £5.20 and one tablet per wash is added to the usual laundry liquid or powder and fabric conditioner. Milton Antibacterial Laundry Tablets can be used in a machine washing or in hand washing. The latter requires one tablet to be dissolved in 4L of warm water (at least 30 °C), leaving the items to soak for 30 mins to ensure they are cleaned properly.”
What our tester said: “Great product – highly recommend in this climate! We also have a toddler who has ‘accidents’, so it’s reassuring to use this without it affecting the smell etc of the laundry.”
- Joint Gold – Adoracub Organic Baby Zip Sleepsuit (RRP £19.99) by Adoracub, a brand of Clickmegetme Ltd
