Using cold cycles may be great for saving energy, but it could mean bacteria and germs aren’t being properly removed from your laundry. That’s not to say you have to turn up the heat – with Dettol Antibacterial Laundry Sanitiser, you can confidently remove germs even in cold water (from 20oC).
Detergent alone isn’t always enough
Every day, our clothes and linen pick up bacteria and other germs. These germs can come from our own bodies, like sweat. They can also come from our surroundings, through contact with our pets or someone who’s sick. Your clothes can even pick up germs from the washing machine itself!
Most of these germs will be harmless, but sometimes they can make us ill. Washing our dirty laundry is important not just so our clothes look clean and smell fresh, but to protect us from cross-infection and disease.
Unfortunately, detergent alone isn’t always enough to effectively remove germs in the wash, particularly when washing at lower temperatures (below 60C). Laundry may look clean, but that doesn’t mean it’s hygienically clean. And that unpleasant musty smell that may linger even after washing? This can be caused by surviving bacteria that have been able to grow, especially if the laundry has been left damp.
Washing at 60C is not always possible nor energy efficient. That’s where special laundry additives like Dettol Laundry Sanitiser come in. Containing antibacterial chemicals that are released during the rinse cycle and remain on the fabric after laundering, it helps remove the germs that detergents can’t while also providing lasting germ protection.
