Persil Laundry Detergent - a hand holding a bottle of persil

Persil, you had me at hello…

I was a Tide user through and through until I purchased a discounted bottle of Persil… I figured, what the heck—I’ll try it. That’s when my love affair began. Yep, I was officially converted after just one wash! The European bestseller has been available in the US for less than five years, yet its popularity is soaring… And for good reason.

Persil’s stain fighting power is incredible! I have three dirty kiddos, and since switching to Persil, I find myself doing less pre-treating because the wash cycle alone takes care of most stains and blemishes. Although it may have a higher price tag, a little Persil goes a really long way (which helps stretch the dollar).

Ooh, that smell, can’t you smell that smell…

The first time I used Persil, I literally was sniffing ALL THE CLOTHES while putting them away. I was in heaven! What’s more, the smell is super long-lasting compared to most detergents, so I get to sniff myself into a happiness coma every time I dry off from a shower, hug a newly dressed kiddo, or snuggle into freshly laundered sheets… Mmm.

I persilnally 😉 will always be a Persil girl!

Ready to try Persil for yourself?

Target and Walmart are pretty much head to head on price at just under $12 a bottle (Persil ProClean Liquid Laundry Detergent, Original, 100 Fluid Ounces), OR do what I do and purchase Persil through Amazon’s Subscribe and Save monthly delivery program. Each month I have two bottles of Persil (Persil ProClean Power-Liquid Laundry Detergent, Original Scent, 75 Fluid Ounces) delivered to my doorstep. I receive a 15% discount for using the program, which means I score BOTH bottles of Persil for around $15 AND shipping is FREE!

    I was a Tide user once…then Persil came along! In spite of my allergies, the scent of Persil is not overpowering. Who needs perfume when I can wash my clothes and enjoy that fresh Persil scent throughout the day.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YES! I thought the same thing about Persil! Love the scent! Thanks for sharing with us!

    Unfortunately my kids have skin allergies and I can only use free and clear detergents. I really wish more detergents offered free and clear.

      I know what you mean, my daughter was very sensitive to detergents as a toddler, but not as much now as she is getting older. I do see that Persil makes a sensitive and a hypoallergenic option. I’m not sure what stores you may find them in, however they are available on Amazon. Hope that helps!

    I just received a sample of Persil in the mail yesterday. Guess I need to check it out. I also use free and clear detergents since I do not what any scent lingering. I like wearing perfume. I can’t use Tide as I am allegic to it so my options are limited.

    • Marley (Sister Sidekick)

      I hope you like the sample! Keep in mind that Persil makes a sensitive skin variety. 🙌

    Do you know if the Persil unscented works as good as the regular? I would be interested to know if anyone has tried them both out. It seems like unscented detergents sometimes don’t work as well.

    I find the smell of Persil off-putting. I don’t care for it. I also am one of the few people who finds Gain revolting. To me they just smell like chemicals. I don’t even like to be in a small room with people who’s clothes are giving off that nasty chemical odor….not pleasant. I want my clothes to smell CLEAN not like they’ve been doused in synthetic perfumes.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for the honest comment, Maggie. I do find the scent of Persil and Gain to be stronger than some of the other brands.
