Our test covers spray, powder and gel stain removers (testing them as pre-treaters) and compares them to washing with:
- water only
- water and a mid-tier laundry detergent
Our expert testers give every stain remover a thorough trial to find the products that:
- perform the best for stain removal
- work well on 10 common and difficult-to-remove stains
- are best for specific stains.
Our interactive comparison tool helps you easily see which stain removers claim to be septic safe, biodegradable and antibacterial as well as how they compare to washing with a mid-tier laundry detergent only. Just like our washing machine reviews, our recommended list will help you see quickly which products come out on top.
