Persil Challenge

I have a joke about how I don’t leave the house without supervision now so when Persil sent us a little care package for Fizz to paint with and test out it seemed perfect timing to do some crafty stuff at home….that was until our washing machine broke down and not enough time to rope a friend in to help.

Normally we don’t use Bio washing powder due to eczema and asthma in our household. I thought however we would give this a go and see if it was just as gentle on our skin as well as our clothes. Since we have a lovely little local council run launderette we knew that the powerful machines there would give our clothes a really good rinse.

Persil supplied a mini art kit with chocolate buttons, ink, apple juice and paint. It took my back turned for seconds for the buttons to be devoured rather than melted on the clothes.

Trying to get outside for a regular Country Kids post has proved difficult so I let Fizz experiment with the other items on our balcony….we ended up with this….


Washing wise the liquid didn’t do too badly. It didn’t quite remove the blue ink stain from Fizz’s dress but it has faded upon 2 more washes.


A note from Persil.
