The experts explained how dish detergents can make a huge difference between getting sparkling results in the first cycle or worse, having to wash the dishes by hand.

“No matter how good your dishwasher is, you’re never going to get sparkly results if the detergent you use is performing poorly,” said Ashley Iredale, CHOICE reviewer.

‘Switch to a good quality detergent and you will immediately notice a better cleaning result.’

The supermarket tablets, capsules, gel and powder were evaluated based on value for money and cleaning performance against common stains such as egg yolks, red wine, coffee and caked cheese.

The experts recommended the seven best detergents from the 29 products tested.

‘We use a row of four identical dishwashers and use pre-colored plates. Why do we use pre-colored plates? Because if you want to fairly compare the performance of the dishwasher detergent, you have to use the same terms for all, Mr. Iredale said.

‘These stained panels are embedded with a certain amount of dirt, are identical and have a very specific formula.

These are used around the world by major detergent manufacturers and other consumer organizations and are considered a standard in detergent testing.

“By using these, you can minimize the number of variables so you can see which detergent looks best when you compare them.”
