We tested floor cleaners on white ceramic tiles, following the manufacturer’s instructions on how to dilute and apply the cleaner.
We soiled tiles with a mixture of oils and dirt, to represent everyday grime that ends up on floors. To simulate mopping, we used sponges attached to a mechanical scrubbing arm and scrubbed the tiles with light pressure.
To measure how well the products cleaned the tiles, we measured the reflectance before and after cleaning with a spectrophotometer.
We tested each product eight times and averaged the results.
Claims are as stated on the packaging. We have not tested the claims.
