From 1958: Whiter Whites From Across The Pond!

This is a very charming commercial from England. Persil is one of England's oldest and best-loved brands. (Here in Phoenix, some of the specialty grocers keep Persil in stock because of the number of ex-pats who have retired here!)

Persil comes in "biological" and "non-biological" form; that is, with enzymes and without. If you have ever watched the BBC show How Clean Is Your House?, you hear a lot of cleaning tips involving "biological washing powder." Notoriously difficult to locate in the United States, if you were in England, you would just pop down to your corner store and pick up some Persil with the enzymes.

You can order Persil on Amazon, where it receives rave reviews.
