Cheap Tabs Beat Brands: Best Dishwasher Tabs
At Stiftung Warentest, the test winners are surprisingly mainly discount and pharmacy products. You can score in almost any category. It is only when it comes to environmental properties that even the best performance is only “satisfactory”.
The overall rating is still impressive. Although no product was rated “very good” (rating 1), the winners of the cheap tests were all rated “good” (rating 2).
- K-Classic All in 1 Dishwashing Detergent Tablets from Kaufland – (2.1)
- W5 Multi-Power All in 1 dishwasher tablets from lidl – (2.1)
- Alio dishwasher tablets complete from Aldi south – “good” (2.2)
Expensive branded products, on the other hand, disappoint in the test. Four of the products tested concluded the test with the verdict of “poor”. They are not convincing when it comes to cleaning, nor when it comes to protecting the material. They sometimes discolor cutlery, shiny silver becomes dull golden – the discoloration can no longer be removed. This is especially troublesome with expensive crockery. From the All-in-one tabs of Ecover, Powerball All in 1 0% off Finish, Lime Dishwashing Tablets frog and Domol Dishwasher Tabs 12 in 1 from Rossman so you should keep your hands better.
All the best
At AllesBeste, inexpensive products can also convince. dm’s nature tab dishwasher to take the top spot around 3 euros per pack of 30. Although the tabs have the word nature in their name, they contain ingredients that are difficult to biodegrade. On the other hand, they are free of benzotriazole (BTA), fragrances and dyes and also contain no preservatives. Which also speaks of the dishwasher tablets: instead of being individually wrapped in plastic, the tablets are in a water-soluble film that dissolves in the dishwasher. Who runs to number 2, the Fairy Platinum all in one unfortunately worse. Instead of being in a box, the tabs are in a plastic wrapper. Unfortunately, the water-soluble foil, which is also used here, no longer compensates for this. The tabs provide a very clean washing result and leave a great shine on glasses and dishes.
