If you are wondering which is the best dishwasher detergent then Which? currently say one of the Fairy dishwasher detergents is best. It has been for the last 4 years and we have been using it ourselves. There are other best buys too – and they even advised to avoid one specific detergent sold at Asda.
However, they recently said that one of the detergents at Aldi is virtually as good as the long-term winner but at a quarter of the price. I can confirm that we have tried it out and will be using it from now on. We noticed no difference at all.
All information is available at Which? They’ve reviewed and tested 27 dishwasher detergents (so far) and although I can’t just publish their results because of copyright issues they do publish some helpful miscellaneous information to non members.
The interesting information open to non members shows the 27 different detergents by brand and gives the cost per wash price, which ranges from 4 pence to 26 pence. Having said that the information is of limited use because it’s not much help to know which detergent is cheaper if you don’t know how it performs, but it’s still interesting.
