I personally love white clothes. They go well with any color and any accessory. And most of all, your overall look is just classic and elegant. However, due to oxidized iron content that makes our water orange, our whites turn grayish or kinda yellowish even after just a few washes. And I hate it when that happens. So instead of fighting the losing battle, I give in–I avoid buying white clothes altogether.
However, I cannot do that with my daughter’s school uniform. After all, it’s standard issue. It is now February and after several months, her white tops have turned rather ashen.
Thankfully, I was introduced to Perwoll Brilliant White Laundry Detergent. It is an environmentally friendly liquid detergent with fiber rebonding technology that is made by Henkel in Germany.
In order to really know that the product works, I washed one of Dindin’s white blouses while I set aside the other as was my control item. I also included one of my younger daughter’s face towels that has turned rather brownish because of our rusty water.Siobe’s face towel. The one on the left is new. The one on the right has been discolored. Perwoll Brilliant White added into the water. The blouse and face towel soaked in Perwoll. Photo taken under fluorescent lighting.
Honestly, after one washing, I did not notice any difference. Not until I took a picture of the two blouses side by side under natural light. The one washed with Perwoll became a bit brighter and I believe that it is because of Perwoll’s optical brighteners that renews white colors. I was told that with continued washing, the blouses will be restored to their white best.Blouse on the right washed in Perwoll.
I so love Perwoll Brilliant White Laundry Detergent! Not only is it great for whites it is also gentle on the hands. I know because I hand washed the blouse and my hands easily get dry. And most of all, it smells really good!!! Gosh! I like laundry that smells good. That means I no longer need to buy a separate fabric conditioner. It is so easy to use, too. Just follow the instructions at the back of the bottle on how much detergent to use for the volume of laundry that you have. Easy peasy!
