Kitchen cleaner tested: which is better?

Test program

As part of international community testing, 14 kitchen cleaners in spray bottles available in Austrian stores were examined.

Test period

Products were purchased in April 2024. Tests were conducted from April to June 2024.

Cleaning

She was Cleaning person And also Fat dissolving power Check for dirt containing grease and dust.
Ceramic tiles (cleaning power) and stainless steel plates (grease dissolving power) were stained with an oil dye mixture specified for the respective test and dried. Contaminated test samples were then placed in an automatic scanning device and a specified amount of detergent was sprayed over them. After the exposure time according to the manufacturer's instructions, the test samples were cleaned with a damp cloth. After an individually determined number of sweeping movements for each test, the clean tiles and stainless steel panels were visually evaluated by five subjects. The tests were repeated four times each.

Surface appearance: The automatic wiping device used wet cloths to wipe mirror tiles on which a specified amount of cleaner had been sprayed. After a specified number of wiping strokes, the test samples were rinsed and dried at room temperature. The drop and streak formation were then visually evaluated by five people. The test was repeated four times.

Unwanted components

An expert evaluated whether cleaning products contain problematic chemicals such as allergenic fragrances and preservatives, potential hormonal agents, carcinogenic and reproductive toxicants, and environmentally harmful substances. No chemical analysis of the contents has been performed, so the result does not take into account the concentration of chemicals in individual products.

Packaging and labeling

Among other things, an expert evaluated the information on the packaging, its readability, and whether the packaging was made from recycled materials and could be recycled at the end of its life. Furthermore, it was evaluated whether the products were eco-labeled and how easily the ingredients of the products were recognizable.

Currency devaluation

A depreciation causes product defects to have a greater impact on the test result. These are marked with a footnote in the table. The following devaluations were used:

  • If the degree of undesirable components is average, the test result will be reduced by half a degree.
  • If access to information about ingredients is not satisfactory, the test result will be reduced by half a mark.
