A raft of innovations have been announced for flagship P&G laundry brands Bold and Daz.

A gel variant of Bold 2in1 will be launched in May, in a bid to repeat the success of P&G's Ariel Excel Gel, which was introduced in September 2008. The gel will be available in four scented variants (rsp £4.39).

Meanwhile, Daz is adding two new variants - Summer Flower Power and Mandarin & Lime Splash (rsp £5.18-£5.28) - to its laundry powder range to offer consumers a greater choice of scent.
