Because it had the best performance in our stain tests, we recommend the widely available Tide Plus Bleach Alternative HE Liquid . It was particularly great at getting out lipstick, coffee, and wine; very good at grass and beef fat; good at blood and just okay at chocolate. It topped our tests in stains overall, but fell short of being our main pick for the third update in a row because it was not wonderful at removing stinkiness in our bacon grease odor test. It tied for third there with my nose, but didn’t break the top three with our smell panel. So if you have a lot of smelly laundry, go with our top pick. If stains are your main concern, this is the pick for you.
