Which? reveals Best Buy washing-up liquidsBest liquid on test is also one of the cheapest
19 August 2012
The latest Which? test of washing-up liquids has revealed four Best Buys, including two supermarket own-brands that cost less than £1 per bottle.
And one of those supermarket liquids is our top-scoring Best Buy, as well as being one of the cheapest products we tested.
That means that market-leading Fairy Original didn't make the grade as our top-rated Best Buy. Our washing-up liquids review shows you how we rated Fairy, and what the four Best Buys are.

One Don't Buy washing-up liquid
Not all cheap supermarket washing-up liquids proved to be good - one was bad enough to be rated a Don't Buy.
It could only remove fat from nine plates before losing its effectiveness. The best liquids we tested washed more than twice that amount.
