In the Kitchen with Finish – Power & Free

DenaFebruary 24, 2014


It’s no secret that things get pretty messy around here. Dishes have been a long-time battle in this house. We used to let the dishes pile up daily. There’s nothing worse than a kitchen sink & counter cluttered with dirty glasses & bowls. It’s only recently that we’ve started to get a handle on the situation. We’re actively making an effort to re-use glasses that aren’t really dirty, scrape plates when we’re finished eating & get everything into the dishwasher in a timely manner.

One of my biggest pet-peeves about the dishwasher used to be that things came out just as dirty as when they went in. Then, a few weeks ago, I started using the Finish – Power & Free line of dishwasher products. It’s made a huge difference. The Power & Free products feature Hydrogen Peroxide Action to power away the toughest food messes — even food that’s been caked on for 24 hours. (Let’s face it, I still deal with that problem…) I feel good about the new Finish line because it doesn’t contain chlorine bleach, and it uses less fragrances and dyes versus regular Finish detergents. I pop the little three-chamber capsules into the washer and my plates come out clean. No more washing only to have to re-wash.

I’m thrilled that Finish sent me some samples & invited me to be a part of its Power & Free – Alliance of Moms. It’s nice to have cleaning products that work so that I can spend less time cleaning up and more time doing what I love — being with my family, taking photographs, & cruising Pinterest. 😉

GIVEAWAY: I’m also excited to share that Finish has put together a sweet, prize package of product samples, a 2014 life + biz goals workbook, a canvas shopping bag & some other swag for one lucky reader! For a chance to win, just leave a comment below.

I hope you enjoyed this little peek into my kitchen. Be sure to like the Finish Facebook page and check out their special offers and discounts, too. The Finish-Power-Free-Alliance-of-MomsFinish – Power & Free line features less-harsh chemical formulas, without sacrificing the power of Finish results – a win for even the tiniest members of your family! Let’s put Finish Power & Free to the #FinishMoms test and #CleanItForward!

Many thanks to Finish for sponsoring this post & for inviting me to be a part of the Finish – Power & Free Alliance of Moms.

    We have a rental for now, and I cannot tell you the last time we used the dishwasher, everytime we did use it , the dishes came out cloudy and filmy, yuck! So we just said forget it and wash everything by hand now, although sometimes it would be nice to just load it run it and forget it for awhile.

      my mother never had a dishwasher, she hates them. and i can totally understand why! i’ve been so disappointed with it in the past. this new line of products is working really well. so fingers crossed it keeps up. it’s really is easy to just leave it and forget it!

    Oh cool!
    I’ve been on the look out for different detergents, ‘specially stuff that’s safer for Sam and does a good job. I actually just bought a box of Trader Joe’s powder stuff.

    We have the same dishwasher!

      I haven’t tried the Trader Joe’s stuff. You’ll have to let me know how you like it. Yes, I’m loving Finish at the moment. Clean dishes = one less thing I have to think/worry about! 🙂
