What is the CHOICE Expert Rating

CHOICE Expert rating

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

CHOICE Expert Rating View more details.

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.

Refers to the consistency of the cleaner. A liquid will be easier to pour, but a gel will do a better job of clinging to the bowl where it's needed. Dry crystals are easiest to clean up in a spill, but need the toilet to be wet in order for them to stick, dissolve and work.
