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.
Ecostore dishwasher tablets clean the dishes well. They are more environmentally friendly than the brands that came out better in your test and that is important to me. The tablets with disposable wrappers are very convenient.
Not just with Ecostore brand but all the dishwasher tablets with disposable wrappers. I don't know what happens to the wrapper when it breaks up. Until I find out, I'm tempted to use a pack of ecostore powder instead.
Yes, I recommend this product.
