Fairy Liquid offers the change to help lower your energy and water bills
Fairy Liquid has been changed in an effort to help people save money amid the cost of living crisis.
Millions of families now pay hundreds more per month for their energy bills, leaving many looking for ways to help cut costs.
Cleaning giantairy has now revealed a makeover to its popularairy Liquid bottles as customers look to save money over the coming months.
Manufacturers changing ingredients and adding new instructions to bottle labels can help reduce water and energy bills.
A new label appeared on the bottles that read: “New. Sparkling in the cold. Energy saving.”
Traditionally,airy Instructions have advised customers to use washing up liquid in warm water to effectively clean dishes.
However, the company has confirmed that the new formula will work at lower temperatures and still provide “a great clean.”
Aairy spokesperson said: “Fairy’s upgraded formula provides a quick clean from start to finish and is designed to clean quickly even in cold water temperatures.
“With the newairy formula, you can wash at lower temperatures and get a great clean.”
Energy price cap in effect
The change comes as the government introduced an energy price cap to protect households and businesses from the worst effects of higher oil and gas prices, taking effect on Saturday (October 1).
The new Energy Price Guarantee replaces the £1,971 cap and limits the unit price paid for electricity and gas.
The government said this meant that the annual bill for a typical household in England, Scotland and Wales would be carried around £2,500 over the next two years. A similar scheme would work in Northern Ireland.
Without action, energy bills were expected to hit £3,500 from October to reach £6,500 next year, according to the government.
This is because the government’s plan only sets the cost per unit that households pay, which means actual bills will still be determined by the amount of energy consumed. Consumer savings is usage dependent, which means if households use more energy they could end up paying more than £2,500.
It comes after Liz Truss falsely claimed that no one in the UK would pay more than £2,500 in their annual energy bill from October during a round of interviews on Thursday.
Mr. Lewis explained that the cap is actually on flat charges and unit prices for gas and electricity, which means if you use more energy, you’ll pay more.
He said calling a price cap was ‘risky’ as some people might mistakenly think they could leave the heating on all the time in the winter without paying more than £2,500.
In a tweet posted on Thursday, he wrote: “The reason why it is important not to report a cap of £2,500 is because it is risking some people, possibly frail elderly people, thinking they can maintain their maximum heat all winter., and they will not pay more than the sum of a certain “.
In another tweet, he added: “There is no cap on £2,500 on energy bills.
Instead, the new October 1 guarantee, like the old covers, limits – daily charging (28p gas, 46bn electric) – and unit rates (10p/kWh gas, 34p/kWh electricity).
“So use more, pay more. £2,500 is what an average person would pay.”
Households will also see the first payment of the £400 Energy Bill Support Scheme on their October electricity bill, with the discount automatically applied monthly in six installments between October and March 2023.
Companies, charities and public sector institutions will also be protected for the next six months.
“Livelihoods and businesses were at stake,” said Liz Truss. “Government energy subsidies limit the price they pay for gas and electricity, protect them from massive bill increases, and are expected to curb inflation as well. The cost of non-representation would have been prohibitive.”
