How to Use the Power of Persil to Remove Stains

When you’ve already got a full to-do list, laundry can feel time-consuming and even stressful, especially if you’re washing for the whole family. But there’s no need to worry – a few simple tips and tricks can help make laundry day easier and quicker! With this advice – and the power of Persil – complaints about how long the washing takes you will soon be a thing of the past. Read on to find out how to use Persil power to pre-treat all kinds of different stains and put your laundry basket in its place.  


Which detergent do I need?  

With so many different kinds of detergent available, it can be hard to know which is best. This often comes down to personal preference, but there are a few things to consider:  

  • Bio or non-bio: tough stains such as grass and grease respond best to bio detergents which contain enzymes that specifically target these types of stains. These enzymes can damage delicate fabrics, though, and bio detergents can also irritate sensitive skin, so in those situations you’ll want a non-bio detergent instead. You’ll find the power of Persil in both and can find out more about the difference between bio and non-bio detergent here.
  • Powder, liquid, or capsule: Persil’s power comes in many forms – including washing powder, liquid detergent, capsules, and tablets. Concentrated liquids give you more washes from a small container to help your wallet and the environment while our capsules are a great time-saving and convenient option that go directly into the drum. Which one you prefer will depend on the type of washing you do most often and your lifestyle.
