Persil Laundry Detergent | Presil ProClean Detergent

Persil is a familiar household brand name taking on top-ranked Tide vying for the best rating in laundry detergent. Persil is manufactured and marketed by Henkel around the world except in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Latin America (except Mexico), China, Australia and New Zealand, where it is manufactured and marketed by Unilever. A pioneer, Persil was first introduced over a century ago in 1907 by Henkel and it was known as the first commercially available "self-activated" laundry detergent. Although the name literally translates to “parsley” in French, the name was actually derived from two of its original ingredients: sodium perborate and sodium silicate.

Persil ProClean detergent is specifically formulated to deliver a deep clean for life's messy moments. It has tough stain-fighting enzymes specially designed to break down stains and deliver an exceptional deep clean on grass, blood, grease, plus so much more. As if that’s not enough, Persil ProClean scents deliver a powerful freshness that lasts long after wash is dried and folded and this even includes smelly sports gear as well as oil and gasoline.

What is the best laundry detergent?

Tide has been the best-selling laundry detergent in the U.S. for 68 years. It's no wonder it did well in our evaluations of price, scent, and cleaning ability. Yet, it lagged slightly behind Persil in the stain-fighting test, but it stood toe-to-toe in all other categories, says Our photospectrometer revealed that—across all our tests—Persil was best overall and removed an average of 2 percent more stains than Tide.

The Persil brand is available in two formulas in the US: Persil ProClean Power-Liquid and the single dose Persil ProClean Power-Caps. The liquid formula is safe to use in all water temperatures, standard and high-efficiency washers, and is safe for use with septic systems. It is available in several scents including fragrance and dye-free.

Persil offers a high level of enzymes and the other cleaning ingredients that are needed to remove tough stains and body soil and is ranked as one of the best performing laundry detergents.

What is Persil’s “self-activating” formula?

Wikipedia says, “The chore of washing the laundry began to change with the introduction of washing powders in the 1880s. These new products originally were simply pulverized soap. New cleaning product marketing successes, such as the 1890s introduction of Gold Dust Washing Powder (created by industrial chemist James Boyce for the N. K. Fairbank Company in the United States), proved that there was a ready market for better cleaning agents. Henkel & Cie, founded in Düsseldorf in 1876, pursued the opportunity, and on 6 June 1907 launched the first of its kind product, Persil. The manufacturer had found a method to add sodium perborate—a bleaching agent—to its base washing agents (silicate), creating what the marketing department called a ‘self-activating powder’ detergent. During the washing process, oxygenated perborate forms small bubbles, doing the 'work of the washboard'—saving consumers time and rendering the historic method of ‘sun-bleaching’ (by laying clothes out in the sun) unnecessary.

Persil was the first commercially available self-activated laundry detergent (combining bleach with the detergent). The invention of Persil was a significant breakthrough. The name, ‘Persil,’ is derived from two of the original ingredients, sodium perborate and silicate."
