Washing Clothes with Persil small & mighty: How to Use the Stain Eraser Ball to Pre-Treat Marks

When it comes to dealing with stains, speed is your friend: whip off the garment as soon as possible and start the pre-treatment process. If you find the stain has already dried in, however (mud on P.E. kits comes to mind), the Pop, Pour, and Rub method below will still work. Just check the label on your garment and on your small & mighty detergent bottle first to ensure the fabric is compatible.

  1. Pop the Stain Eraser Ball out of the small & mighty bottle.
  2. Pour a small amount of detergent directly onto the stain using the ball. Do this neat – do not add water.
  3. Rub the area gently with the bottom of the Persil Stain Eraser Ball to loosen the stain.

The Stain Eraser Ball is ideal for pre-treating marks because the small ridges and bobbles on the base can be used to gently break up ground-in stains. The roughness of the Persil ball will also ensure the detergent gets right down into the fibres, tackling the stain from the source. Just watch this video for a demonstration!

After you’ve used the Persil Stain Eraser Ball to pre-treat stubborn stains, it’s time to put your washing machine to good use:

  2. Fill the Stain Eraser Ball with the correct dosage for your laundry load. This is indicated on the small & mighty bottle, and thanks to the handy bubble design of the Persil ball, is easy to measure out. Just fill up to the lower ridge for smaller loads, and the upper for large ones.

  4. Set the machine to the usual setting for your fabric. If you’re short of time, why not adjust accordingly? small & mighty is designed to deal with tough stains even in a quick wash, so you can give yourself time for more important things!
