When extra hygiene is needed
For hygienically clean laundry, we recommend using Persil Universal Powder or Persil Universal Megaperls. To prevent and improve cleanliness in the washing machine, it is also helpful to wash at regular intervals, in a normal household about once a week, at higher temperatures (e.g. 60 degrees) with a Persil powdered universal detergent.
Washing at higher temperatures
If people with a contagious disease such as flu, athlete's foot, skin or intestinal infections or a weakened immune system live in the household, our recommendation also applies. Check the instructions on the garment care label before each washing cycle. It is also important to know that bleach-based detergents are not suitable for colourful and dark materials.
Prefer longer wash programmes
Good things take time: For demanding laundry, you should also avoid short programmes or fast-cycling and choose the washing programme with the longest running time.
After washing, always try to hang your laundry immediately on the clothesline or clothes drying rack to prevent germs from forming in the drum due to the high humidity caused by damp laundry.
If weather conditions permit, leave the laundry to dry in the open air if possible and do not use a tumble dryer.
