Our test covers spray stain removers and compares them to washing with:
- water and a mid-tier laundry detergent
- mid-tier detergent mixed into a slurry and applied to stains, with extra detergent in the wash as well.
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.
