Besides TIDE and PERSIL, what is the best overall liquid detergent for removing stains? I GOOGLE this and PERSIL was the best. Tide 2nd. In the cheaper detergents they state A&H CLEAN BURST, ALL, and GAIN dead last. They did rank GAIN as #1 in the best smell category. I'm asking here because some of the tests "MIGHT" be biased. I have used TIDE since my divorce, but am looking to save money, maybe, if I can find something similar to TIDE, at a lower price.
What 'cha got?

I use regular Tide and add Borax to it. Nothing cleans hands better than Tide (again, not liquid) after working on a car, but boy does it burn if you have a scrape.

Probably not a brand available to the States. A brand called Sunlight is almost 1/3 of the Tide up here.

In any case, if you want to save money I would suggest the powder instead of the liquid one. If you look at the numbers you can go so much further using the powder.

Two or three factories pump out all the laundry detergent. In the end itís marketing that tells you which is better. Ever wonder why Proctor and Gamble makes multiple brands? Or Unilever? Or Colgate Palmolive?

Consumer Reports (Oct 2017) found Tide Plus Ultra Stain Release and Persil ProClean Power Liquid 2in1 to be the best. Cost about the same.

I've found the best is to pretreat and that will remove more than the most expensive cleaners.

I use ALL free and clear (liquid as the pods tested badly) and pretreat any major stains.

We like Era. Seems to be the best bang for the buck and gets my close clean after working on equipment. Heavy soiled clothes, blood or something else that stains bad, we will pretreat with shout.

Tide bothers my skin and persil smells horrible.

I do but itís all the same stuff. I use All Free and Clear Liquid. I hate fragrances. On tough dirt I add Borax.

I wonder if there is a laundry detergent equivalent of BITOG.

ERA is pretty good for getting out dirt and stains
