“We test ten different types of stains that people commonly get on their clothes, including perspiration, mud, cooking oil, chocolate ice-cream, makeup and blood,” a spokesperson said.
“We use cotton material swatches that have specific formulas of these stains applied to them. Before washing, we apply a set amount of each stain remover to the stained swatch and let it sit for five minutes.
“Then a front loader washing machine and a mid-performing laundry detergent is used to measure the degree of stain removal.”
