Keeping My White Stuff White

household cleaning products, grown up stuff

Ever since I was an infant, mum made it a point to clothe me in white, she said she finds those infant tie-side shirts and those itsy bitsy little booties and mittens look so much better in white. Mum also bought me a couple of dozens of cloth diapers, which was later on used as bibs, instead, and those were my favorites and I never go out of the house without one of them. Apart from those white cloth diapers, mum also made it a habit to buy me white shorts and sandos {sleeveless undershirt}, like the one am wearing on the photo, for example, which mum bought when we went to Baguio about 2 years ago, as they are the comfiest to wear, especially when I am just at home and the weather is sweltering, I perspire too much, you see.

Those sandos that mum bought are mostly a size or two bigger than me so that I can get to wear them longer, probably for a few months more or even a year, but due to the wear and tear of regular use, those white sandos are mostly grayish and worn. Mum does not have the heart to throw them away while they still fit me so she was hoping to find something that would restore their white color so they would look better than their current state.

I guess that is the reason why mum was excited to stumble upon Perwoll Brilliant White Liquid Detergent at South Supermarket, where we usually go to buy groceries. She said she was wary about using just any detergent on my stuff, but Perwoll won her over because it is safe to use on sensitive skin like mine and promises to be gentle on mum’s hands, too. In addition, this product is also environment-friendly, which earned it another point in my mum’s book. 

Perwoll according to mum who made it a point to read the labels, is manufactured by the German company, Henkel, and not only uses the innovative fiber rebonding technology that prevents colors from fading and restore the gray appearing fabric but also has optical brighteners that re-new white colors without using any bleaching agents. This particular variant is most ideal to use on white colored clothes. The manufacturers have also come up with variants that are perfect to use on black, as well as colored, clothes, which I am sure most mums will like.

If you must know, Perwoll White Liquid Detergent is easy enough to use, says mum, all you really have to do is follow the washing instructions found at the back of the packaging. When hand-washing, all you have to do is dissolve the 60-ml sachet in 10 liters of water. When using the washing machine, on the other hand, 2 sachets are to be poured into the main wash with 35 liters of water. You also have to set your washer on delicate or gentle wash cycle. For a couple of my sandos, mum just poured part of the contents onto our wash basin and soaked the clothes for a few minutes.

Mum said her mobile phone’s camera may not have captured the slight difference between this “before” and “after” photo, but she said she noticed that after she washed my sando with Perwoll, the graying spot on the right side of the clothes {your left if your looking at the photo} has noticeably lighten up. Next time she said she will try to soak my clothes for half to one hour to get more positive results. Did I mention this liquid detergent also comes with a really nice smell, there’s probably no need to use a fabric conditioner. Mum also noticed that her hands were not left rough and dry after she was done washing, unlike when she use her  usual detergent when hand washing. As for me, am just delighted to use my pristine white sandos!

Mum said the next time you have problems keeping your little one’s white stuff white, maybe you might want to consider trying Perwoll Brilliant White Liquid Detergent. By the way, for more information about Perwoll and their other products, do not forget to:

    1. that’s the problem with me, i have to patience to wait, but maybe i should try soaking them for more than an hour + see how they return to white 🙂

  1. nice product but i probably won’t be using that. i just throw everything in the washing machine (although i pause the operation to soak the white ones when necessary) and they are already good to go. LOL!

    1. that’s my common practice, too! but sometimes, i really get annoyed with older white clothes fading into gray after a long time of use….

  2. I am always in search of the best laundry soaps in the market. I look for ones that can really get the dirt and stains off without too much handwashing effort (because I hand wash clothes) and will not leave my hands red and itchy (because I’m very sensitive to laundry soap). I haven’t tried Perwoll, but I might try it out when I finish our supply. Thanks for sharing!

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

  3. Looking at the before and after photo, the before looks whiter but it might just be the effect of the lighting when you took the photograph. I would like to try this though.

    1. from what i can recall it was particularly sunny the day i took the first photo, but if you can see the actual shirt, it sure is much whiter after i washed it with Perwoll 🙂

  4. I like looking at my kids wearing white shirts, but darn it, it gets dirty and stained easily. Thank goodness though to bleach, but I don’t really like to use it as much. It is just too harsh. I doubt Perwoll’s even available here in the US, but sure sounds like one great product. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Perfect timing! My Ziggy’s white clothes have started graying too. Will definitely consider using this product from Perwoll. 🙂

  6. Never tried this before. Even though I don’t do the washing, I see to it that our clothes look good even after a number of washes. I dont like faded colors or dirty whites. Thanks for sharing this. Will ask my yaya to try this one

    1. dirty whites are also one of my pet peeves, good thing i stumbled upon this product 🙂
