About Persil Washing Powder

As the first commercially available laundry detergent launched in 1909, Persil has been at the forefront of innovation for over a century. Persil played a major role in abolishing ‘wash day’ at the turn of the century, which radically changed women’s roles and their working week. They were also the first laundry detergent company to feature a man in their TV advertising, breaking down gender stereotypes.

Why Choose Persil Washing Powder?

Throughout the years, the nature of our stains has changed but Persil has continued to lead technical invention to deliver the best cleaning results to keep our colours bright and our whites whiter-than-white.

Using a washing powder over a liquid detergent has its benefits. The safety record for using powders is much longer than liquids or tabs which can spill or pop and cause injury to children and the elderly alike. Liquid or capsule detergents have a history of being swallowed by young children. Washing powder is much harder to swallow and tastes foul, discouraging your little ones from eating it. 

As well as being a generally safe option for your family, washing powder is also an extremely affordable option for cleaning your clothes as a full load of laundry will require much less product to get clean. The paper or cardboard packaging for powder detergent is also more environmentally friendly which is a huge perk for those who are more environmentally conscious. The packaging can be more easily recycled than the plastic bottles required for liquids. 

You can pick up Persil washing powder in bio and non-bio formulas. Biological (bio) detergent contains enzymes that help break down fat, grease, and starch that are found in some of the most common stains such as sauces, oils, and food grease. These enzymes help to break down these stains and lift them from the fabric, making them excellent stain removers. Non-biological (non-bio) detergents do not contain these enzymes. However, will still contain great built-in cleaning power to ensure your clothes come out of the washing machine clean and fresh. 

When washing with non-bio detergents, especially when tackling particularly tough stains, you may need to use a slightly higher temperature to allow the detergent to do its job properly, but for some families, non-bio detergents can be a great option, especially if someone in the family has sensitive skin.  

Persil allows you to continue exploring and living life to the full, no matter how dirty you get in the process. Today, you can still trust Persil to provide unbeatable cleaning that gets the washing clean first time, every time.
