    How we test

    Overall score is determined solely by cleaning performance. We stain white tiles with a NASA formulation of simulated faeces. We then apply toilet cleaner to the tile and scrub it with a mechanical arm.

    We measure the reflectance of the tile before we apply the stain and again after cleaning. Each product is tested three times, with the results averaged for a final score.
