    We test manual liquid toilet cleaners by using a scrub tester against synthetic faecies (based on a NASA formulation). We test three times and measure the soil removal by scanning the tile on a picture scanner, and then using colour assessment software to measure the area of tile cleaned. Results scaled using a benchmark of 45% performance for tap water, and are rounded to the nearest 5% to account for statistical significance.
