I joke a lot about my husband and his inability to load the dishwasher.  I even wrote a course for husbands who may also suffer from the same dishwasher-loading disability as he.

He tries!  I will give him that.  I just feel like he might benefit from the game Tetris as his definition of “the dishwasher is full” is a lot different than mine.

I give you exhibit A.

My husband ran the dishwasher like this, while there was still a sink full of other dishes that "didn't fit".

So let’s ignore the fact that he has plastic on the bottom rack (ughhhh).

What my husband didn’t know when he ran this is that I switched out our dishwasher tabs.  We are HUGE Finish fans and have been using their individual dishwasher tabs for awhile now.  I have tried countless different types of tabs, powder and liquid and at the end of the day, we always end up back with the best!


When I heard that they have come out with a line of products that have less chemicals, I had to try them.  The swap was easy as the new tabs look pretty much like the old ones.  I said nothing to my husband and replaced them under the sink.  He loaded the dishwasher (his way) and ran the cycle as normal.

To be honest, I was expecting the results to not be great.  I’ve tried other products before in an effort to lessen the harsh chemicals in our home and have always been very disappointed.

However, the dishes came out with the same “Finish shine” I have come to know well.  I really couldn’t tell the difference and was truly excited that we now have a better option.

NEW Finish® Power & Free™ tablets use Hydrogen Peroxide instead of Bleach.  They also use less dyes and fragrances than ever before. Your dishes are left as clean and shiny, without you having to worry about the harsh chemical residue left behind.  Amazing!


Did I mention that they have an entire lineup of “Power & Free™” products?  This includes Quantum®, Powerball®, and Jet-Dry®!  The products we have already fallen in love with are now safer for the entire family!

Ok so I know I get a little crazy-excited when I find a new product.  I am even more excited to tell you that Finish is giving away FREE samples on their Facebook page so you can try it out for yourselves and compare.  Head on over to claim your sample and other exciting coupons!  Be sure to come back and tell me what you think!
