Recommended laundry detergents, by Consumer Reports

“Our latest tests using conventional and high-efficiency washers continue to show that buying a high-priced detergent doesn’t guarantee cleaner clothes,” says Consumer Reports. “Several products that cost 15 cents or less per load out-cleaned several pricier competitors. Our tests also reveal that none of the triple- and other super-concentrated products were tops at cleaning.”

Here is the Consumer Reports’ selection of recommended laundry detergents. The maximum overall score is 100, and “Best Buy” models offer more value.

Consumer Reports is an American magazine published monthly since 1936. It features reviews and comparisons of consumer products and services based on reporting and results from its in-house testing laboratory and survey research centre. The magazine accepts no advertising, pays for all the products it tests, and, as a not-for-profit organisation, has no shareholders. It also publishes cleaning and general buying guides.
