The Persil ProClean Laundry Test + Giveaway!


A sponsored post. 

I actually like doing laundry.

However, this only happened very recently. Paul and I were living in an older complex that had shared laundry facilities and I used to dread having to lug baskets back and forth. Since then, we’ve moved into a condo with an in-suite washer and dryer unit and I can’t stop doing laundry.

It gives me this weird sense of control, calm and feeling of productivity. Since our laundry machines are right there, I find myself throwing a load in whenever I can. Now that I have in-suite laundry, I can never go back!

The second most important thing was finding a powerful detergent that can bust through the stains and smells of two adults and a dog. Between our multiple trips to the gym, dog park, hikes and camping trips – we have a lot of laundry to do.

Persil ProClean 2in1 is a blue power liquid detergent with pro-lift technology that recently launched in Canada. Haven’t heard of it? Persil is a top European brand and recently beat out Tide in a Consumer Reports ranking.

Not only does it work amazingly, it also smells great! Even after pulling my clothes out of the dryer (with no dryer sheet), my clothes still had that freshly laundered smell – aaaaahhhhh. The pro-lift enzymes worked hard to remove tough stains and lifted away all the paw prints I have on my pants from my dog BINGO jumping up on me.

Each 1.18L bottle is good for 25 loads and the bottle is small enough that it can tuck away neatly next to my laundry machine. For really tough stains, you can pre-treat the spot with Persil ProClean detergent, rubbing it in and letting it sit for just 5 minutes before washing For great tips to tackle lots of tough stains, visit the ‘laundry tips’ section on the Persil ProClean website.

Need something tougher for your whites? 

I hear ya. When your sheets look like they’re starting to yellow and your towels need brightening up, reach for Persil ProClean Power-Pearls which are formulated to make your whites even whiter. It even works for colours.

Just sprinkle the pearls into a load of whites and let the cleaning enzymes do all the work. The dust-free pearls don’t make a mess, you only have to fill up to line 1 for a regular load, and it dispenses easily out of the jug. A bottle is good for about 50 loads and dispenses easily out of plastic jug. No more heavy boxes of powder to lug around!

    You’d be surprised by the amount of blood stains I come across. With one husband and two little boys it seems to be a common stain in our home and I always have a super difficult time removing it especially if I don’t catch it right away. I heard a lot of great things about Persil and will be sure to give them a go 🙂 Thanks so much!
