Don’t these look pretty? I had fun photographing these Lenor Unstoppables! I’ve seen the advert on TV and it stuck in my head because the campaign is fronted by Amy Sedaris, who I recognise from my all-time favourite show, Sex And The City. Being an adult and having to go to what I consider one of the most boring supermarket section, the laundry aisle, (even more mundane than putting in the wash load itself!) so spotting new products makes it slightly more interesting…
Even after seeing the advert on TV, I wasn’t clear what Lenor Unstoppables do but when I was offered to try them, I thought I’d give it a go!
These little pastel beads are like perfume for your clothes. As they have no cleansing properties in them, you are still required to add your usual detergent and fabric softener, Lenor Unstoppables are essentially a scent booster which last on your clothes for up to 12 weeks. They keep your clothes smelling fresh!
I don’t necessarily think they are an essential household item and I don’t use them in every single wash on items and not so much on clothes I wear daily, but I think they are really nice to use when you’re washing all the towels, bed linen, sportswear, and little things like socks, so when you pull them out of storage weeks after, you’ll still get that fresh laundry smell!
It comes in three scents. The pink beads are made up of red berries, cherries, peach and white jasmine. The blue one is a watery blend of soapy elements, minerals, and lily with sparkling oceanic green top notes. The gold one is a creamy fragrance of peach and red roses.
So, how do you use them? You fill the cap up with your favourite scent or you can mix them up to create your own! Throw them in to the drum of washing machine and then add your wash load in. You can personalise the intensity of the scent to suit you, so you can throw half a capful for a subtle fragrance or three capfuls to achieve a stronger scent. It’s a very versatile product as well as innovative and convenient. The beads dissolve during the wash cycle and the scent is infused in to the fibres of the fabric. It is safe to use for all colours and fabrics – but like I mentioned, it’s great for towels and sportswear, in particular. Each bottle of Lenor Unstoppables retails at £5 each.
