Use Robert!

I think Savlon is a better choice as you'll be smelling like Izal after using Roberts. A particular hospital severally rejects Dettol for some strange reasons. When my wife was to give birth, when Dettol was mentioned, you need to see how the nurses vehemently insisted on Savlon. Dunno?

Yes...Savlon is good too. A doctor recommended it for me. I couldn't get it so i had to go for Roberts. The doc even insisted on Savlon. He kept on repeating it...but it wasn't available in the stores around.

Despite 85% of products in Nigeria being fake none has ever been recalled, corruption is killing Nigergans daily yet govt spend lots of money funding incompetent agencies like NAFDAC and SON.
Imagine SON awarding Super brand status to companies who produces substandard products, what are they fighting then.

Izal sure got a disgusting and embarrassing smell, used it on my dog once due to rashes on its head and the whole house was smelling the entire week.

Am waiting for our control agency to declare any world brand dangerous for Nigerians. Even when countries around the world is avoiding Chinese fish products, they are pushed into our market and we are munching! Cheap death traps!

For those saying competitors at work, please it only happens when regulatory bodies are efficient which we haven't seen around here. This product must have been proven to be dangerous before it is declared so!

I will ?

Most Multi National Companies are profit driven, they care less of safety standard. Why shifting such a product into the market since it's only 0.1% significant.

U called it ota pia pia, but the real name which i presumed shuld be Water pia pia

Dettol has not lost its value atall, maybe u are using fake Dettol cos its cheaper, buy the original Dettol that has a Nafdac number at retail outlets like Game, Shoprite, Park n shop or stores suppplied directly by RB sales rep and you will get value for your money. Thank u

Ok...please keep using Dettol. At least i'm not rich enough to buy the original one. You are soooo rich you can even buy the company itself. Carry go. I even mentioned that if you are generous enough to 'dash' me the one from the factory directly, I no go use am. Na by force?

Thank you too.

To disinfect. It's usually one of the required items needed when a wife is near delivery. Bia, which kain kwesion be this sef? Arrrrgggghhhh!

The National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) said the product had undergone bacterial tests and failed to kill 99.9 per cent of germs.

This is where the news is, a supposed false claim by Dettol. We have a lot here, especially these herbal guys who claim all sorts yet regulatory and advertising agencies let these ads play in the media.

The exaggeration of germs in their ads can be annoying too. They overplay it for sales purposes.

A disinfectant that kills 99.9% of germs will be toxic to humans.
Not really. 75% ethanol kills about 99.9% bacteria/micro-organisms and it's not toxic to humans. Some people even drink it in form of spirit.

IV tried that savlon and didn't like it. It doesn't dissolve in the water well though its mild. I still use Roberts sha. The big size is so economical.
