These dishwasher tablets have a cost per wash of just 7 pence, making them one of the cheapest options among those that we examined.

In our comprehensive test results, we disclose everything.

Pros

Outstanding work in all aspects of cleaning
One of only three tablets that have been given a perfect score of five stars for their ability to remove tea stains from the interiors of mugs.

In addition to this, they are effective in preventing the glasses from developing a film even after multiple washes.

Test score 59%

Comparative verdict: acceptable, but there are better options

The liquid and powder components of the Fairy Original All in One dishwasher tablets give rise to the company’s claim that the tablets can “clean dried-on grease first time.” We put these tablets through their paces by using them to remove dried-on egg yolk, stubborn tea stains, and other messes. How does their level of cleanliness compare to that of other types of dishwasher tablets? Check out the complete results of our tests to learn more.

Pros
Excellent at eliminating milk stains as well as stubborn grease
The one that performed the best in the test in terms of preventing cloudiness and filming
Outstanding at preventing things from losing their lustre over time.

The tablets are only marginally effective at removing the most stubborn stains; for example, they have almost no effect on the residue left by pasta, and even less on the egg yolk.
Not particularly effective at preventing the formation of watermarks on cutlery.

Compare  verdict: Could be better

The All in One Lemon dishwasher tablets sold by Tesco are marketed as having the ability to “cut through grease” and “lift baked-on food.” In order to determine whether or not they really are capable of doing a good job of keeping your dishes clean, we subjected them to a wide variety of stains.

Pros
Excellent for removing milk that has been baked on.
Easy egg yolk removal Helps prevent glasses from becoming cloudy after being washed multiple times
Able to keep things from deteriorating and losing their lustre.
Cons
Have a negligible effect on the residue of tea and pasta

£7.00Typical price
Test score 47%

The conclusion is that the cleaning was unimpressive.
