Anyone else sometimes feel like they need a laundry intervention? Yep, me too!  As a busy pet parent working full time, planning a wedding and traveling, it always seems like a struggle to keep up on the laundry.  I swear, just when I think I am finally caught up on the laundry pile, Reggie comes running in from outside with his muddy paws, which means bath time….and more laundry! I mean, don’t get me wrong...I love my little guy (just  look at that sweet face)! But I don’t always love the mess he leaves behind, especially on my white towels!

So here we go: A PET PARENT’S GUIDE TO TOUGH STAINS WITH Persil® ProClean® !


STEP 1: SORT

  • Light colors- whites, grey, tan- will go in one pile.

  • Deep colored clothes—black, red, navy, brown, dark gray—go in another pile.

  • Heavily soiled clothes (aka muddy towels from your pup) and all whites (such as towels or sheets) should be washed separately.

Also, be sure to always follow the care label instructions in case certain items need specific laundering care.

STEP 2: DETERGENT

I like using Persil® ProClean® Stain Fighter formula because it has stain fighting enzymes specially designed to break down stains and deliver an exceptional deep clean! And the great thing about Persil® ProClean® is it doesn’t require a lot to get your laundry clean!  Simply read the label for correct usage. This will prevent residue from being left on your clothing and also keep your washing machine running efficiently.


PRO TIP: If your clothes have stains, pre-treat them before washing so it doesn't set in.  Apply some Persil® ProClean® Stain Fighter directly to the stain, rub into fabric, then let it sit for 5-10 minutes (depending on the stain).  Then simply run it through the regular wash cycle recommend for that article of clothing.

STEP 3: WATER TEMPERATURE & CYCLE

It’s best to follow the washing machine instructions for water temperature guidelines, but unless your clothing is caked with dirt and heavily stained, washing in cold water will work for most average loads and bright colors.  Use hot water for white loads, to keep your whites bright.

PRO TIP: For an extra brightening boost, wash your whites with Persil® ProClean® Laundry Detergent then hang laundry in the sun for natural bleaching!

As far as cycle, you will want to choose the best washer cycle for the fabrics in the load. The “regular” cycle is best for heavily soiled items or sturdy cotton.  Permanent press is best for average loads, but you may also need to use "delicate" for certain fabrics. "Heavy duty" is great for articles like jeans and towels….especially towels that are stinky and dirty from muddy doggies.

STEP 4: LOAD

Load items into the washer one at a time, making sure they are not in a wad. Do not cram the washer too full. The clothes need room to move about in the water.

STEP 5:  RELAX

When using Persil® ProClean® Laundry Detergent and its exceptional stain fighting ingredients, you know your laundry will get clean the first time around….even those tough stains like mud and grass from your furbaby!  So now its time to relax, give your dog some extra lovins or belly rubs (Reggie’s favorite!) or tackle those other items on your to-do list…at least until it’s time to fold!
