My husband and I successfully stayed married for almost nine years without the assistance of a dishwasher. Some people thought we were crazy, most insisted that it was a necessary. When we added kids to the mix, we still washed dishes by hand and although occasionally inconvenient, for the most part, we could keep up. We thought little of a clean dishwasher and even less of the type of dishwasher detergent we would need instead settling for a little elbow grease and traditional sponges. Last year, however, we moved into a larger house that came equipped with a dishwasher and boy, were our lives changed. More frequent family and friend get-togethers means we spend more time prepping in the kitchen, but would rather spend time with our guests than hand-washing all of our dishes. #SparklySavings #CollectiveBias
So when we made the transition, we knew we had to find something we would love that would stand up to the meticulous washing done by my previous dishwasher (Jim, my husband). A quick trip to Walmart in the cleaning section and we came across a variety of products by Finish.
Here are a few of our favorites:
1. Quantum™ Power & Free™ – this detergent tackles tough stains and built-on food all while using less harsh chemicals. Walmart also currently has the Finish Quantum™ Power & Free™ on Rollback which means that once paired with this coupon you have even bigger savings!
2. Finish® Power Up™ All in 1 Detergent Booster – Finish formula that works with your detergent to boost dishwashing, such as spots and tough stains
3. Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner – assists in cleaning your dishwasher to keep it running smoothly all month long
Finish Quantum™ Power & Free™ is simple to use once your dishwasher is loaded.
Simply place the pod into the detergent well. I prefer this form over the powder and the liquid as it is compact and significantly less messy.
One of the most frustrating parts of our old dishwashing routine was whenever our glasses would have a significant amount of smudges and never really seemed clean or clear.
After using Finish, we could see right through to our littlest Mister – a huge benefit from making the big switch.
Shortly after picking these up, we headed out on vacation to visit our friends in Nashville and I tucked away a few into our suitcase. Knowing that we would be staying with them and with five little boys total, I knew we would be using the dishwasher a lot! On your next family travels, consider bringing along some tabs of Finish dishwasher detergent to share or use to help add a little sparkle to someone’s day!
We made our way down to the home of country music, heat and boots!
Second dinner in and the old powder wasn’t proving to do the trick, so I shared the sampler tablet I picked up and left the other with the family as well. A full loaded dishwasher with dirty dishes came out sparkling just a short time later and our hostess shared how it really did a great job on her dishes!
And surprise! The sampler packet came with a handy coupon for future purchase.
Consider putting together some dishwasher cleaner and dishwasher detergent as a cute little hostess gift the next time someone invites you over! How can you share a little sparkle with someone you know?
