Last month I trialled the Finish Power & Pure dishwasher tablets and gave 100 of my readers the opportunity to trail them, with the chance to win some really awesome prizes. Now one month on I have to say that I am a lot more confident putting just about everything (casserole dishes, thermomix bowl, baking bowls, saucepans etc) into the dishwasher and that it will come out clean with no extra scrubbing necessary, I also noticed less residue which then means less chemicals left on the dishes, which is much more pleasant to eat off. Usually if I cooked through the day I would leave these dishes in the sink ready for the evening hand wash (as I only wash once a day). It would clutter the kitchen and make it look untidy. Now after baking a cake or making a hot lunch I put all the dishes into the dishwasher and keep my kitchen tidy.
Reading through the reviews left from the readers who received samples, many were really pleased with the results:
- Dishes are sparkling
- No chemical smell or taste left on the items
- Removed tea stains from the cups
- Removed poached egg from the silverware and crockery
- No pre-rinse needed for pots and pans
- LOVED how you didn’t have to unwrap the tablet
- Plastics came out clean and dry
- Wishes they were suitable for clothes!!
- Dishes smell amazing
- Dishwasher appears cleaner too
- No water marks on glasses
I have found that I am filling my dishwasher up a little faster therefore our regular routine of the kids emptying the dishwasher in the mornings is now quite staggered. Sometimes I put it on through the day if I have done a big cook up and they can empty it after school. So I made up this little label which I have laminated and put a magent stripe on the back (found from Riot Art & Craft stores). Whenever I put the dishwasher on I turn it to say dishes are clean so it’s s ‘subtle’ reminder for them to unpack it when they get home from school. Also makes no excuses for them to put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher too!
7 Day Detox
A few weeks ago I participated in the 7 Day Detox and from this I must add that I really do prefer to use the vinegar as a natural cleaning solution when cleaning the floors. It cleans the floors beautifully but what I truly like is that it doesn’t leave a slippery residue on the floor. You can read more about how I naturally clean elements of my kitchen.

As a mum with two very busy little boys, anything that makes life easier and allows more time with the family is a winner in my book. If I can reduce our chemical waste too – even better! Enter Finish Power & Pure. Its fair to say I threw everything I had a Finish Power & Pure. From casserole dishes to pot pie ramekins, in it went. I was unsure what to expect as post dishwasher re-washing is a common requirement for me, however I was most pleasantly surprised. Not only was I hit with a nice fresh smell when I opened the dishwasher but everything was clean and sparkling. EVERYTHING!
Casserole Dish – Sparkling!
Pie Ramekins – Clean as a whistle!
Dried on Weet-Bix – Gone!
Well done Finish Power & Pure, you’ve won over this (slightly less) Organised Housewife for sure.
