Dynamo sent me a sample of the new Dynamo Maximum to review. I’m a long time Dynamo user, so I was curious to see the maximised version, with even more cleaning power. Now that I have kids, I need all the cleaning power I can get! And just to prove I’m not pretending to be a Dynamo user, here’s what’s normally in my laundry along with the sample:
My kids must have known about this review because they kindly gave me a giant puke (mostly over Mum!), a nappy “number 2” leak and a set of wet bed sheets, along with the usual food spills (plus my kids like to wipe their hands and faces on their clothes), for testing purposes. AKA just another week with a 2yo and 4yo. (Sorry if that was too much information!)
I also threw in another these extra challenges: the kitchen face washer (see above – which doesn’t get washed anywhere near as often as it should) and my scummiest tea towel (below), which is burnt from the hot pizza stone.
Dynamo Maximum has top loader and front loader variants. I tested the front loader version. Two capfuls into the wash (which seemed like a lot compared to other liquids) and switch the machine on (with my usual settings of 30°C and Cotton and Linens).
The result: clean, fresh smelling clothes, but not an overpowering smell (which I don’t like about a lot of powders). It’s a liquid, so no worries about undissolved powder on the clothes or wondering how well it’s distributed in the load. The usual food stains were all gone, and no trace of the nappy leak. No smell of urine or vomit either. Yay – just what I look for in a laundry liquid. The kitchen wash cloth was looking renewed:
It’s not a miracle maker though: my poor tea towel will never be the same, but it came out much cleaner than I expected (with no soaking or other pre-treatment)!
Dynamo Maximum is available in all leading supermarkets throughout Australia in 1L (RRP: $9.99) and 2L (RRP: $16.99) variants.
