Persil Small and Mighty
Advantages: Smell, Softness
Disadvantages: Stain removal
I am a Bzz Agent and have been trying the product for free.
I must say I used to use Persil Small and Mighty if it was on offer at my local Supermarket and it didn't really have an impact on me. I usually buy the cheapest clothes washing product at that point in time as apart from the smell I always think that they are all much the same.
I used my Persil Small and Mighty from my bzz agent kit and initially was very pleased. I love love love the smell of my laundry when it comes out of the washing machine and lasting fragrance in my utility room. I love love love the soft feel of the clothes, especially my 10 week old baby's babygros. But what I really want on top of both of those things is a detergent that actually washes out "tough stains" as promised, and like all other detergents Persil Small and Mighty still doesn't deliver. I was expecting (as the marketing of this product is all related to our "little ones") that it would be able to get leaky nappy stains out of babygros - it doesn't unless you use it with an extra stain remover, like Vanish. And as a busy mother of two, you don't want to have to soak the clothes, put on Vanish and then put them in the washing machine, you want a product that does all that for you. Nappy leakage stains are tough, but nappies leak all the time with explosive babies!!!
The other notable comment that I have is that although the product is concentrated, it takes you a while to get used to using less - although in a very hard water area such as mine you probably end up using the same amount as with normal liquid. What I would recommend would be putting some clever top on the bottle that stops you from filling the ball up too much - ie gives you one wash load amount at the time, then you would be far less inclined to add "just a little bit more as I live in a hard water area". In regards to the measuring ball, I found it really difficult to get the plastic measuring ball off of the top of the bottle!!
Not quite mighty enough for me, yet.

Summary: Not quite as tough on stains as it suggests but smells great and washing is very soft.
