ProVersatile and effective.

ConsIt has a strong smell.

EFFECTIVE BUT HAS A STRONG SMELL When I was a child my mother kept a medicine box. This wasn't large and wouldn't have contained anything like the amount of different bottles, tubes and jars that most people use nowadays. There were a few essentials kept in here such as aspirin, calamine lotion...

My dad is a regular user of TCP and always seems to use it at night for something or other but until recently, it's never really been something that I've had much use for myself. That changed recently, so much so that I've invested in a bottle of my own rather than using some of my dad's bottle...

“TCP - a real magic potion”

published 17/07/2011

ProCheap and effective for a wide variety of uses

ConsNone - unless the smell puts you off!

TCP is a mild antiseptic liquid for home use. The name is an abbreviation of the original active ingredient, Trichlorophenylmethyliodsalycil; it's easy to see why a slightly catchier acronym was used for marketing the product! It was first produced way back in 1918, after over 100 years to...

“What does TCP stand for?”

published 14/01/2011

ProVersatile.

ConsStrong smell and taste.

A staple item in the first aid cupboard If you want a big long word to impress your friends with, try Trichlorophenylmethiliodosalycil. This is the original chemical name for TCP, and you can understand why they abbreviated it, otherwise you would need one hell of a big bottle, just to fit the...

Even before kids, I have always had a bottle of this tucked away somewhere in the house for emergency use. Coming in a bit of an old fashioned brown glass bottle with a white plastic screw top lid, we seem to get through this quite quickly in our house because it is so good at killing germs and...

Consthe smell may put some people off

TCP is an antiseptic liquid with a wide variety of uses from dabbing on cuts to gargling with (not that I've tried the latter). I remember it from when I was a child and it still seems to be just as popular today, which suggests that it must do a good job. The bottle I have is a brown glass one...

ConsElderly person/hospital smell.

TCP Liquid Antiseptic is something that I believe should be a staple item in all medicine boxes around the world. TCP comes provided in a glass bottle with a screw lid and it's a brown glass colour with a blue & green label which I find to be instantly recognisable. The bottle automatically...

“Smelly But Soothing”

ProReliable

ConsNone

TCP must be one of the most well known antiseptics around. It has been around for years. It is made in France and the letters TCP come from the word Trichlorophenylmethyliodosalicyl (how on earth do you say that??) which was what it was first made of. In 1950 they changed it to a misture of...

Conssmell

TCP has been around for donkey's years and I have very clear memories of my mother dabbing my scratched and bruised kness with this when I was little and I had come off my bike. It used to hurt like hell, but that somehow made me feel it was actually doing me some good. We always have a bottle...

ConsThe smell.

Price and Availability TCP is something we always had in the cupboard at my Mum and Dad’s and since moving out it’s something I always make sure I’ve still got in the bathroom as it’s useful for so many things. TCP can be bought in a few different bottle sizes including 50ml, 100ml, 200ml and...

“Liquid Antiseptic”

Proeffective, versatile

Consstrong smelling

Whenever I smell TCP, it instantly reminds me of my childhood and various scrapes and grazes. It’s not a smell you can mistake – a really pungent, clinical smell that I am sure most people have experienced at some time or another. It is the liquid antiseptic that my mum used and, as with a lot of...
