Just two days after we returned home from Botswana, I received a surprise delivery – a sample box from the Home Tester’s Club!


Well, I kind of knew the box might be coming, although I wasn’t 100% sure. I was super excited though when I realised that it was actually going to be delivered! This was the very first time I’d received a sample box from the Home Tester’s Club too.


It was a new laundry product which was just the most perfect sample for me because a) I love doing laundry and b) I love trying out new laundry products, whenever I can. I didn’t know until the very last minute though, and until I actually opened the box, which laundry product was going to be included inside, and this was it:


OMO Auto with Freshness laundry liquid.


I received 6 x 1.5 litre bottles – 1 bottle for me and 1 bottle for each one of my 5 friends who had accepted to share the campaign with me. They were all so chuffed when I gave them their samples. As for me, I simply couldn’t wait to stuff the next load of laundry into the washing machine to try out the new product.


And I absolutely loved it. The scent is heavenly. The laundry liquid is fairly thick and it didn’t just run straight into the drum before the machine even drew all the water it needed for the cycle. During the wash it foamed nicely on just 30 C° and, as I’m sure you know, not all laundry detergents do that on a cold wash. The label on the back of the bottle also suggests washing with OMO Auto with Freshness laundry liquid at 30 C°.


I prefer to wash most of our lightly soiled laundry (except towels and linen) on either 30 C° or 40 C° as this prolongs the lifespan of clothes, especially cotton, and also saves a bit on electricity. To prevent the build-up of bacteria in your washing machine if you’re regularly running cold water washes, doing a service wash cycle without any clothes in the machine once a month is generally recommended.


I haven’t seen OMO Auto with Freshness laundry liquid on supermarket shelves yet so I’m not quite sure how much it costs. The label on the back of the bottle says it is equal to 2kg of laundry washing powder which should last for some time. The packaging also suggests using less than a full cap of laundry liquid for lightly soiled garments, which is what I did, and doing this could make the product go even further.


All in all I was pleased with how our first load of laundry washed with OMO Auto with Freshness laundry liquid. I could smell the Freshness of the bouquet while it was washing and the scent lingered on the garments long after the washing was done.


Have you tried the OMO Auto with Freshness laundry liquid yet?
