New Laundry Sanitiser. Kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria
Approved by British Skin Foundation

Laundry Hygiene Tips

  1. Tip 1Washing with a laundry detergent alone at temperatures below 60°C can’t kill all viruses and bacteria. Use a sanitiser such as Persil Antibacterial Laundry Sanitiser in addition to your regular detergent to kill 99.9% of viruses* and bacteria, even in a quick and cold wash (20°C).
  2. Tip 2For a hygienic clean, you might particularly want to add a Laundry Sanitiser to washing cycles that include items such as the clothes of someone who has been ill, underwear, bedding, towels and sports wear!
  3. Tip 3When your wash cycle is finished, remove your garments from the machine as soon as possible and dry thoroughly. Not drying your clothes properly can allow bacteria to grow. Get them dried as soon as you can.
  4. Tip 4Remember to wash your hands after handling dirty laundry using soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
  5. Tip 5Try to clean your washing machine regularly (such as once a month) to keep it clean and germ-free. Top tip: Persil laundry sanitiser can also be used to sanitise your machine; simply pour 100ml of Persil Laundry Sanitiser into the empty drum of the machine and wash at 60°C!
