This is the product's overall performance score, based on key tests conducted by our industry experts in the CHOICE labs.

We tested most products in front loaders, as they all claim to work in front loaders. We re-tested soap nuts in top loaders because the distributor came back to us claiming that they perform best in top loaders.

General detergency View more details.

The all-rounder 'general detergency swatch' is stained with nut oil, milk and a colour pigment. It's a measure of how well the detergent keeps soils suspended in the wash liquor and stops them from redepositing on your clothes; enzyme action on protein-based stains; and oil removal.
