The Good Housekeeping Cleaning Lab got impressive results from the detergent during the testing process, “especially on tough stains like, chocolate and mustard, and testers agreed, it left clothes smelling clean and fresh.”

“At Henkel, we are constantly looking for ways to innovate and meet the needs of consumers through our products,” said Matt Bernick, Senior Brand Manager at Persil ProClean. “The recognition of our Persil Intense Fresh Discs by Good Housekeeping’s 2023 Best Cleaning & Organizing Awards is a testament to our dedication to providing a premium clean. We’re proud to offer people nationwide a convenient and easy-to-use option that provides laundry with our signature deep cleaning technology, all with an added fresh scent boost.”

Persil Intense Fresh Discs feature deep cleaning technology, which includes: stain-fighting enzymes that break down stains, patented performance boosters to ensure dazzling whites, and anti-graying technology to ensure vibrant fabrics. Moreover, the Discs include added scent boost and freshness technology to tackle odors. Additionally, the formula is clean-rinsing and low-sudsing, which is optimal for great performance in all machine types (including HE). The formula enables energy efficient loads by delivering a premium clean in cold water settings. Its Advanced Deep Clean Technology fights odors at the source, is loaded with a signature scent for powerful freshness, and cares for clothes while delivering a deep clean, right down to the fibers.

Good Housekeeping Cleaning Lab experts and a team of engineers, scientists and dedicated consumer testers set out to recognize the best performing, most innovative organizers and cleaning products, tools and appliances that get the job done the first time. They used established protocols and lab equipment to assess cleaning performance across categories, and reviewed labeling, product manuals and websites for clarity and thoroughness of directions, safety information and more. Consumers then weighed in, providing real life feedback on how the products worked in their own homes and for their families, how they compared to the products they currently use and if they would continue using them.
