I had a fantastic opportunity to try out Ariel 3in1 pods. I received a full size box of 16 pods (RRP £5.49), 10 individual sample pods and 10 money off vouchers at 50p each to pass on to friends and family. Ariel also provided with a project handbook with lots of useful background information and questionnaire sheets.
Using Ariel 3in1 pods was incredibly easy. I simply put them in the drum before the washing, no fuss and no measuring required. The pods are contained within a recyclable plastic tub with a snap-on lid that is very andy for storage.
Ariel 3in 1 is a super concentrated pre-dosed liquid detergent that has been specifically designed to clean, lift stains and brighten your clothes all at the sae time. I put Ariel 3in1 through a very rigorous testing process and have to admit that I'v been left very impressed with the results.
My son's jumper had a big stain from a marker pen that he sneaked in the washing machine drum and inevitably it leaked during a wash cycle. I had no hopes whatsoever of getting rid of the stain but saved the jumper for messy pay in the garden. The jumper had been washed with a regular washing detergent but as I expected the stain wouldn't budge. However, when I washed it with Ariel 3in 1 to my amazement the stain was gone completely!! I wish I took a picture to share with you but the jumper is as good as new now and my son is wearing it to the nursery again.
Ariel 3in1 has also been very effective at removing finger paint, beetroot and blackberry stains. It wasn't as good on some really tough dried in mud and food stains.
On a couple of occasions due me cramming too much laundry in one wash Ariel 3in1 capsule didn't dissolve completely and left a light blue soapy stain on an item of clothing. My advice is be careful not to overload you washing machine, Ariel recommends leaving a hands width gap between the wash load and the top of the drum.
All in all, Ariel 3in1 is a great and convenient washing detergent, it was effective at removing some really tough stains, the whites came out brighter and it made my clothes smell lovely. I had lots of positive feedback from my friends and family whom I gave out the samples to. Ariel 3in1 is a bit pricey but I would still highly recommend it.

Laundry tip: If you can, immediately rinse a fresh stain in cold water as it reduces the chances of it settling into the fibres. Do not rinse in hot water, thus will set the stain making it more difficult to remove.
