Dettol giveaway!

Sponsored post


Oh my goodness. I have never been so excited about household cleaning products as I have since I became a parent. I am no domestic goddess, but oh, the things I have seen. It can scare even the less-than-prudent (understatement in my case much?) house keeper straight. Just the fear of the whole family coming down with a group illness is enough for me! Sometimes sharing is just not caring!!! All those missed days of work and day care. We’re already racking up the absences and winter hasn’t even kicked in properly yet! Eek.

I’m definitely not a germ-o-phobe. I’ve got no problem with a bit of dirt or some toughening of the immune system (I like to keep it real), but there’s definitely a line when it comes to toilet training or raw meat juice on the kitchen counter. Not to mention coughing and snot and…you get the idea. Ew. Scary.

Also? When the primary stay at home parent gets sick, that’s just another nightmare. I get cold sweats just thinking about it…no wait, maybe that’s cold sweats from the fact that I recently got sick for the first time in years and it SUCKS. No-one gives the stay at homer a day off! WHAT? WHERE’S MY CONTRACT? I NEED TO REVIEW IT.

So right now I am all about prevention and damage control! I can’t tell you how well timed it was that I received a great range of Dettol products at my front door when I did. Let’s just say I was starting to lose my mind a little…

Dettol Healthy Touch instant hand sanitiser.

Oh, this is so good. It comes in a handy travel sized 50ml bottle, so it fits in your handbag/nappy bag and you can take it on the plane with you if you’re travelling. I love it. I’ve used it in many different situations. Before eating in a public place (for example if you’re on the go and you’ve had to touch dubious hand rails and other such things prior to your meal). When you’ve been coughing and you’ve used your hands to cover your mouth (although they say the crook of your elbow is better I keep forgetting so the sanitiser is important!). When you’ve had to run to the loo with your toilet training child and you’ve washed your hands afterwards, but you want some extra reassurance you’re not spreading germs around.

I am sure you can think of many other instances (I have too many to list), where this is so useful.

Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleanser.

These are THE BEST. Did I mention that they come in the form of 40 wipes per container? Wipes are the best – so convenient. Anti bacterial wipes are even better! It makes a quick spot clean so easy. I was concerned they might be too strong, but they don’t contain bleach which put my mind at ease. You can use them on SO MANY THINGS:

  • high chairs
  • changing mats
  • potties
  • toys
  • bench tops
  • chopping boards
  • fridges
  • bins
  • sinks
  • microwaves
  • toilet seats
  • baths
  • taps
  • wash basins
  • door handles
  • tables
  • desks
  • telephone
  • keyboards

You get the idea. I just love how quick it is to use these wipes. Time is everything when I have an active, sometimes grotty, demanding small human around!! I’ll admit it also appeals to the anti 50s house keeper in me. It doesn’t even feel like cleaning. Hot tip, though. Don’t absentmindedly leave the lid open. All your wipes will dry out and you’ll be very sad. Devastated.

Pro Fresh Citrus Splash pH-Balanced Shower Gel.

Until I received this product, I had NO idea that Dettol made shower gel. To wash your whole body with. It claims to protect against BO and can I tell you, this is a good thing. Especially after I just spent a few days in Sydney, in big crowds. Trust me. No-one wants to be THAT person in the airport either.

I wondered if it would make me smell like a walking spray bottle of chemicals or a hospital, but it is surprisingly innocuous. Kind of smells like a mild shampoo or conditioner, only it’s for your body. I can handle that! I don’t know for sure how great it is at eliminating body odour, because I am blessed with less smelly genes (literally – apparently it’s a Korean thing), but it certainly provides some extra reassurance!

Look at all that non-germy goodness!!! Want to know something else that’s exciting?? You can win these very products because I am hosting my first ever giveaway! How lucky are we?!
