Our washing-up liquid tests separate the best washing-up liquids from the products you should leave on the shelf. The Best Buy washing-up liquid revealed by our latest tests is outstanding at removing fatty foods and baked-on grease, meaning it will help you get through the dishes faster.

We’ve tested washing-up liquids from big brands Fairy Liquid and Ecover, plus supermarket products from Aldi, Morrison and Sainsbury's. Thanks to our tough tests, we've discovered which washing-up liquids make short work of even the grimiest pots and pans. So you can use our results to help you cut down on elbow grease. 

The table below is currently locked. Once you're logged in, it reveals full scores and ratings for all the washing-up liquids we've tested, from best to worst. The best washing-up liquids can wash two-and-a-half times the number of dirty plates as the worst (per 100ml).

The most expensive washing-up liquids aren’t always the best, so we’ve calculated the cost per 100ml so you can easily compare prices.
