* Overall satisfaction is an individual rating and not a combined total of all ratings. By default, brands with equal overall satisfaction ratings are sorted by the mean overall satisfaction score as rated by consumers. You can click the arrows at the top of any column in the table to sort by the results in that column. ^ By clicking on a brand or ‘details’ button, you will leave Canstar Blue and be taken to our referral partner to compare. You agree that Canstar Blue’s terms and conditions apply to this referral. If you click on a brand that our referral partner does not cover, you will be taken to a brand page on Canstar Blue.

Aussies have rated ALDI Di-San as the top brand in Canstar Blue’s latest laundry stain remover ratings. It scored five stars for effectiveness, value for money, ease of use, packaging convenience and overall satisfaction.
Our review compares laundry stain removers on customer satisfaction, so you can find out what other Aussies think about the compared brands before you go ahead with a purchase. Think of it as like asking hundreds of your closest mates which laundry stain remover they think is best!
Respondents rate their satisfaction with their laundry stain remover brand(s) from zero to ten, where zero is extremely dissatisfied and ten is extremely satisfied. Brand satisfaction was rated by respondents on the following criteria:
Overall satisfaction: measures consumer satisfaction with a laundry stain remover brand as an individual score NOT a combined total of all criteria.
Effectiveness: the laundry stain remover was effective in removing stains from fabrics.
Value for money: the cost is reasonable for the quality and performance of the laundry stain remover.
Ease of use: the laundry stain remover was easy to use, with sufficient instructions provided.
Packaging convenience: the laundry stain remover was easy to open and store.
Scent: the laundry stain remover has a pleasant odour that matches the description (i.e. ocean breeze, etc.).
The winning brand is the one that receives the highest Overall satisfaction rating once all the scores from the Overall satisfaction criteria are combined and averaged.
Overall satisfaction is asked as a specific question and represents an individual measure, not a combined total of all criteria.
When we cannot determine a clear winner from the criteria for the Overall satisfaction rating, we will then look at the other criteria measured in the rating.
The brand with the highest number of five-star ratings within the supporting criteria will become the five-star recipient in overall satisfaction, and thus win the award. If a clear leader still cannot be determined from the supporting criteria, joint winners will be declared.
Brands must have received at least 30 responses to be included, so not all brands available in the market have been compared in this survey. The brands rated in this survey are listed below in order of best overall satisfaction.

Why should you use a laundry stain remover?
Stained clothes are inevitable, and removing them can be a real challenge. Stains can become chemically bound to certain materials, making them hard and sometimes impossible to remove without damaging the fabric itself. That’s where laundry stain removers come in. They typically contain a special formula with oxidizing agents that basically target and ‘unbind’ stains. What’s difficult though, is finding a good-quality product that will do the job and also keep your favourite t-shirts shmick.
You should also be careful when using stain removers, as fabrics such as silk, velvet and leather shouldn’t be treated with a stain remover, as you’ll more likely end up doing more damage. If you’re not sure about what you can use a stain remover on, read the instructions on the stain remover, as well as the fabric instructions to ensure your wardrobe is left intact at the end of the washing cycle.
