Overall score is the average of 6 scores for stain removal.
We test in a controlled lab environment using plates that are pre-stained. We get the plates from the same company that supplies consumer organisations and dishwasher manufacturers globally. We set the dishwasher to a standard cycle at 60°C and test each detergent 4 times. To see how well the detergents have cleaned the plates, we measure the reflectance with a spectrophotometer before and after cleaning.
That it is supposed to be more eco friendly
I had very poor results with this product. Did not remove quite a lot of food items even though I do rinse first. But the main drawback was that it left a dull film on the dishes and more noticeably the glassware. I frequently had to give an extra rinse even for a barely acceptable result. It also left a dull film on the stainless steel interior of the dishwasher. Do not recommend.
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
