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.
Sticks in the dispenser despite cleaning the machine to improve water flow. Leaves powdery marks on dishes because the residue in the dispenser contaminates the dishes during the final rinsing cycle. Rinse aid makes no difference. Complained to the manufacturer and will never use again. This product has been cynically cheapened to force people onto their ineffective tablets (Active are much better).
No, this product has too many drawbacks.
