Soiled laundry

The presence of soil in a wash affects the stain removal performance of a detergent. So to mimic as closely as possible consumer habits and practices in a laboratory, real consumer soiled laundry items are often included in performance testing. Such items help understand stain removal under more consumer relevant wash conditions. We can supply these articles to you.

Natural stains

Using stained test fabrics in lab testing will help you understand technically how well a laundry detergent formulation performs against competitive products or alternative development prototypes. We provide a range of natural consumer relevant stained test fabrics to help you assess stain removal performance.

Specialist services

Our range of specialist services can assist you in product development and gaining a broader understanding of your markets. Retrieval of competitors products and manufacture of product demonstration kits for use in supermarkets to demonstrate new product benefits and initiatives both help tailor products to consumer needs.
