We tested different liquid dishwasher detergents and created three separate categories to rank each product. With over 35 years of experience with testing products, we’ve learned that creating categories can allow us to narrow down our top choices and have more accuracy with rating each item. The power, application, and odor of each product were evaluated to determine which liquid dishwasher detergents stood out in the industry.
Power: Our top category was the power of each liquid dishwasher detergent to determine how well it cleaned with each use. We evaluated how well it removed grease and dried residue on different types of glassware, pans, and silverware. We checked each dish to determine if any needed to be rewashed.
Application: The application and ease of use of each product were examined to determine how convenient it was to apply and rinse off. We tested how convenient the bottle was to hold and grip and if any scrubbing or pressure was needed to achieve the desired results.
Odor: During our testing process, we evaluated the scent of each dishwashing soap to determine if it had a pleasant odor or smelled artificial and like chemicals. We also looked for any scents that were left behind after the dishes were dried.
