CFT Hand dish method

We are proud to introduce our hand dish method to you. This method allows you to test the performance of liquid hand dish detergents in a standardized way. In our method. The Sheen Washability tester (Sheen PG 903) mimics the cleaning movements. The Sheen even allows you to mimic manual pressure by adding weights. We developed an adapter to place 4 of our dishwash monitors in the Sheen.

Suitable Tiles

  • DM 03 – Shepherd’s Pie
  • DM 06 – Cheese
  • DM 07 – Spaghetti Bolognese
  • DM 42 – Blueberry Yogurt
  • DM 54 – Oatmeal/Chocolate
  • DM 60 – Spinach
  • DM 76, 176, 276, 376 – Corn Starch
  • DM 77, 177, 277, 377 – Mix Starch
  • DM 78, 178, 278, 378 – Rice Starch

Method

  • Premeasure the tiles, preferably using a MACH 5, because this allows you to measure inhomogenous surfaces.
  • Soak the 4 dishwash monitors for 5 of 10 minutes, in your detergent solution
  • Soak temperature of 40°C
  • Amount of strokes (a from and to movement): 0 (To measure the soak effect), 5, 10, 15 and 20 strokes.
  • Pressure: 300g, 600g and 900 g.
  • Measure the tiles after wash, preferably using a MACH 5

Measuring the tiles using the MACH 5, allows you to quantify the results in graphs, without relying on human judgements like in the IKW-method.
