soaking clothes


 If an item of clothing is heavily stained it may need soaking before you wash it.

First, make sure that:

  • The colour will not run (check the care label)
  • It is not wool, silk, leather, an article with a flame resistant finish or metal fasteners
  • The detergent is fully dissolved before you put the garment in and the water is not too hot for the fabric or dye
  • The garment is not scrunched up
  • White and coloured articles are not soaked together – especially white nylon you are not using an enamel bath or basin
  • You are not using an enamel bath or basin

And then:

  1. Soak stained clothes in Persil for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Simply wash clothes as usual for brilliant results.

Quick tip: For those tough 48 hr dried in stains, try Persil Ultimate.
