How we test

How we test

Our test is based on the standard AS/NZS 2040:1998. The test was completed using machines filled with 3.5kg loads.

Overall score

  • Dirt removal (50%)
  • Water efficiency (10%)
  • Rinse performance (20%)
  • Spin efficiency (10%)
  • Gentleness (10%)

Dirt removal
Calculated according to a formula in the standard, which reduces the score in proportion to the variability of dirt removal over a range of test swatches in the wash load.

Water efficiency
Based on the amount of water used in the whole cycle, per kg of clothes.

Rinsing
Based on the amount of detergent residues after rinsing.

Spin efficiency
Calculated from the amount of water remaining (per kg) in the damp clothes.

Gentleness
Calculated from the amount of wear on easily frayed squares of cloth.
