10 Reasons to use Persil: Power, Care and Efficiency

Nowadays, information about the products we use is more readily available than it ever has been – and that means many of us are more careful with our shopping as a result. After all, when you buy something you want to be absolutely sure you’re making the right choice. When shopping for laundry detergent, you might ask yourself: “what are the benefits of using Persil?” or “is Persil power too powerful – will it damage my clothes?”

To help answer these questions, we’ve put together a list of ten ways that the power of Persil is great for your clothes, your family, and the world around you.


1. Great cleaning power is kind to your clothes

The power of Persil is well-known but did you know that our detergents can be good for your clothes too? When used correctly, our detergents help to keep your clothes fresh, clean and protected. Persil Colour is specially designed to keep your coloured clothes vibrant while Persil Silk & Wool is PH neutral to skin.


2. Dosing system makes laundry simple

One of the first things you might look for when you’re wondering how to use Persil is guidance on how much detergent you should use in each wash. Our dosing balls and scoops make measuring out washing powder or liquid detergent easy. And, if you’re really pressed for time, our laundry capsules just go straight in the drum – no measuring required.  


3. Stain Eraser Ball gets tough on stains

At Persil, complaints about kids getting mucky are frowned upon. We believe that Dirt is Good which means we’re committed to making cleaning up spills and stains as easy and quick as possible. Our unique Stain Eraser Ball is designed to help you pre-treat any marks on your clothes – just pop, pour and rub!  


4. Four great formats

Everyone has their own preferred way of using the power of Persil. That’s why we offer our detergents in powder, tablet, liquid capsule and concentrated liquid formula.


5. Bio formula boosts cleaning power, even on difficult stains

Our biological formula contains enzymes to help break down protein-based stains, such as blood, egg and grass. These work great at 30°C (helping you to clean efficiently and save energy at the same time) but aren’t suitable for delicate fabrics like silk and wool.  


6. Non-bio formula is extra-kind next to delicate skin

Worried that biological detergents might be harsh on you or your little one’s skin? Persil non-bio is formulated to be tough on stains but gentle on skin. It’s enzyme-free and hypoallergenic. Pair it with Comfort Pure fabric conditioner for added kindness.  


7. All non-bio products are dermatologically tested

We test all of our non-bio products rigorously to make sure they’re skin-safe and our research is supported by the British Skin Foundation – so you get clean clothes and delicate skin stays protected.  


8. Concentrated liquid – value for money, less packaging

It’s not easy being green – or is it? A few small changes can make a big difference and that’s why Persil small & mighty liquid detergent is concentrated to give you more washes from every bottle, without impacting on the quality of the results.  


9. Persil’s power guarantees brilliant cleaning even at lower temperatures

We’re always working to find ways to make our detergents even better and more effective. That’s why we’re so proud that our high-performance detergents clean thoroughly – even at 30°C.  It also makes it easier for you to save electricity - now, that’s Persil power!
