In the 70s and early 80s, many families soaked terry nappies in a bucket of Napisan until it was time to wash them.  Not only did it disinfect the nappies, it also whitened them beautifully which is why this is the perfect product to use when looking to get your whites white again.  Every day you can come into contact with germs when in crowded environments, in public places or in the presence of pets.  A regular detergent cleans but does not disinfect.  Napisan works by releasing active oxygen to remove stains.  Items washed with Napisan will not only be clean but Napisan also kills the germs you cannot see to leave your garments more hygienic.  Microbiological tests show that Napisan disinfects even at 30 degrees and safely takes care of your laundry. In contact with water Napisan is able to destroy the germs in the laundry.
