Fairy Platinum Dishwasher Original

Fairy Platinum has come top in the latest Which? dishwasher tablet tests, with Finish Powerball Classic tablets a close second.

Fairy Platinum got higher marks for cleaning overall, while the Finish tablets were slightly better at preventing watermarks and keeping dishes shiny.

Three other tablets were rated as Best Buys in the test, with one costing just 10p per wash.

You can see the full results from the test and read more about how we carried it out in our dishwasher tablet reviews or by reading the  March issue of Which? magazine.
