Even if you have a dishwasher, chances are you still buy dishwashing liquid for washing up in the sink. We lab test and review dishwashing liquids from most brands, including Aldi, Coles, Fairy, Finish and Palmolive.

Our expert testers give every dishwashing liquid a thorough workout to help find the product that:

  • removes the most dirt when scrubbing away in the sink
  • produces the most foam, and
  • cleans the most plates per pack.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which brands claim to be gentle on the hands, cruelty-free, have biodegradable surfactants and are phosphate-free. Just like in our dishwasher reviews, our Recommended list will help you see quickly which models come out on top.
