Spain is Different #2 Washing Up Liquid

It looks like a squeeze bottle, it’s got a nozzle like one and it smells like washing up liquid but it sure as hell doesn’t act like one.

Even being throttled into a deformed shape such as this results in a piddling, good for nothing, little drip of washing liquid. You could argue that it’s environmentally friendly as it’s impossible to get a decent amount of liquid out of the damn bottle.

  1. One of the few advertising campaigns (and my god have they been using it forevAH) is Fairy Washing Up Liquid – honestly it does work out cheaper! Not so sure about the being kind to hands thing, though, or maybe that’s just the hard water!

      I agree. This fellow is a poor imposter. Our friend Jo couldn’t squeeze a drop out of this. At first she was convinced we hadn’t opened it and then once she had scrutinised it an decided its valve was fully open suggested we decant the liquid into something else.

      Life is far too short to be decanting washing up liquid bottles.

  2. Thank goodness I inherited a dishwasher! 🙂

    Did you check that there isn’t a little piece of foil under the screw cap?

    • dragojac says:

      😮 I have now… and there isn’t. It is pure and simply a badly designed bottle that takes its place alongside matches that don’t light, toilet paper which sometimes has, sometimes doesn’t have perforations, choccie biscuits missing a biscuit base, youghurt that changes from being runny one week to thick enough to stand a spoon up in the next and… and… and… 🙂

  4. And I noticed that this dish washing soap does not make soap suds as well… Unless you use copious amounts of it.

    • dragojac says:

      Absolutely 🙂 I wonder if that’s why the nozzle is so ‘difficult’. If the liquid came out to easy it would be used up in a week and nobody would buy the stuff again… then again I won’t be buying it again anyway.
