Bottom line: This powder dishwasher detergent performs only just OK overall, but it only costs 13¢ per wash. It's OK at removing red wine stains, but it's just OK at removing coffee stains and minced-meat stains, and poor at removing egg-yolk, rice and baked-on cheese stains.

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.
