How To Clean Your Dishwasher & #FINISHTHEDISHES

Finish Logo

Do you clean your dishwasher?  Most of us, including my family, don’t ever think about cleaning the dishwasher.   I mean, why would you?  The dishes are getting cleaner so the dishwasher should be getting cleaner too, right?

Wrong.  Over time hidden dirt, grease and lime scale do build up and this will reduce the performance of your dishwasher. Fortunately it’s not hard to clean your dishwasher with the FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner.  FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner is able to intensively clean hard to see places in your dishwasher where grease & lime scale build up. Simply put, a cleaner dishwasher means amazingly clean dishes. Again, simple to use – just three easy steps once a month will keep your dishwasher working great!

How to Clean Your Dishwasher

Step 1)  Remove the sticker from the top of the FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner bottle without removing the cap.

Step 2)  Place the bottle upside down in a dish rack or in a secure position in your empty dishwasher.

Step 3)  Run the dishwasher on the hottest setting possible (Sanitize or Pots & Pans).

See?  I told you it was easy to clean your dishwasher!

How to Boost Your Dishwasher Results

Now that the dishwasher was clean I knew it was time to top up my rinse agent.  I have been using FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent for awhile now as it keeps the spots off my dishes.  Did you know that using detergents alone, food and chemical residues can redeposit on dishware during the rinse cycle, causing spots and residues to remaine?  When you use FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent you rinse away leftover food and detergent residues for sparkling dishes, glasses and cutlery. Plus, as it wicks away the residue, it also helps the dishes become drier than when you use detergent alone. 

It is also so simple to use, all you need to do is fill your rinse agent dispenser with FINSH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent and it will be automatically released in the rinse cycle every time your dishwasher runs.  Just re-fill once a month or as needed.

Simply using FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner & FINISH® JET-DRY® Rinse Agent together in a routine will vastly improve the results you get from your dishwasher.  It’s been two weeks since I cleaned my dishwasher and topped up the rinse aid and my family have noticed a significant difference. My dishwasher no longer emits an odour during cycles and the dishes do not come out foggy or spotted looking.

Thank you, I have noticed a smell when I open my dishwasher. Perhaps this would solve that issue. I have never used a rinse agent. Thanks. Vicki.

I definitely did not know that about the re-depositing. It's neat that you've noticed such a difference!
