Persil Small and Mighty Bio and Colour Giveaway


Looking for a great laundry detergent, well I am reviewing  Persil Small and Mighty again, I recently had my stain removal for a white t shirt, with chocolate, ink and pasta sauce,this time I am just using my usual family stain fest!!

I have to say its an easy review. Persil Small and Mighty this time I am trying the Bio and Colour, so my washing that I call pale wash and my dark colours have been put through their paces.



The first thing about the Persil that is unique, is the Stain Eraser Ball which neatly sits in the body of the bottle. You just pop it out and pour the dose, it doubles as a stain pre treatment, you just pour on a stubborn stain before washing in the usual way. Its a bit tricky to see the measurement dose but it is there.



The other nice feature is the easy-to-open flip top lid and spout for mess-free pouring, this saves the dribble of detergent around the lid and the unsightly trickle down the side of a bottle.

But clean is where its at, I want a detergent that cleans and removes stains. 

As always the family help immensely with throwing stains at their clothes, so thoughtful.



Chris gave me a shirt, had to be his best one a Reiss shirt with a lovely gravy stain after a carvery night out, the gravy had a greasy film, so it was what I class as a 'tricky stain'.




From previous use I trusted Persil would tackle it. So no other stain removal was used, but I did use the stain eraser ball before washing on a usual wash.



Result stain gone!!

My washing is clean, smells good and when I have troublesome stains, I can rely on Persil.

  4. I used to moan constantly about doing the washing until my mum explained to me that I am very lucky that all I have to do is put clothes in the machine and not carry a basket on my head to a river and wash my clothes on a rock. ;)

  9. My washing machine broke down a few years ago so my Mum did my washing for me including my bedding. I'm allergic to all wash powders/liquids apart from Persil so when I woke up in the middle of the night itching like mad & the following morning came out in a rash with blisters.I blamed my Mum for using the wrong powder & she was really apologetic but I had to apologise when I realised I'd actually got chicken pox

  19. I once threw the coal into the washing machine. I was clearly not concentrating at the time - my only explanation is that the washer was a metal box on the side wall of the house, and the stove was a metal box on the side wall of the next room

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am trying to teach my son at uni' how to do his own washing. He manages to wash it, but it then ends up all screwed up and a nightmare to iron because he is always in too much of a hurry to fold it up.

    ReplyDelete
  21. im terrible at ruining things in the washer whether its putting something that runs in hence dyeing all the clothes with it, leaving tissues in so everything comes out with tissues shredded all over it but best is leaving a whole wage packet in the wash i really should start to check pockets!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have shrunk jumpers on more than one occasion because of not reading washing instructions! Luckily as I buy from charity shops it hasn't cost me too much each time. But arrrgh how stupid!
