As much as I love being in the kitchen cooking and baking until my heart desires, there is one thing I despise the most and that is cleaning up and doing the dishes. And let me tell you that when you cook a few recipes a day the dishes pile up and they pile up fast and furious. Before we had dishwashers we used to complain about washing dishes all the time. Now I love to complain about loading and unloading the dishwasher. I just wish they would come out with robots that would help you out in the kitchen with all this stuff. But since there are no robots yet, I do have my dear husband who does a great job of loading and unloading the dishwasher.
Anyway, I am still grateful for dishwashers and very thankful. As a food blogger, I use mine pretty much on a daily basis, especially now that I’m cooking like crazy for my book. Cooking a few recipes a day is pretty much my life. After using the dishwasher on a daily basis, even the dishwasher itself gets full of grease and other nasty things I’d rather not talk about. And I’m not one that rinses my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. I mean really? If I were to rinse them, then I might as well wash them myself.
So yeah after all that use and abuse, even dishwashers need to be cleaned about once a month to ensure that it runs at its best. Who knew? Which brings me to this great product, Finish Dishwasher cleaner which does your dirty job for you. Really you don’t have to do anything, except once a month or whenever you notice build up in your dishwasher, just place a bottle of this cleaner directly into your dishwasher, just like you see in the picture below. There’s no cap that you have to remove, all you have to do is remove a sticker from the top of the cap, and place the bottle upside down in the bottom rack of your dishwasher.
You simply have to run your dishwasher on the hottest cycle that it has, or if you have a sanitize option use that, and start it up and let it do its thing. And that’s all there is to it. Once the dishwasher is finished you’ll have a nice clean and sparkling new dishwasher that you’ll be more than happy to use because now it’s no longer gross.
A cleaner dishwasher means cleaner dishes, my friends, so trust me here. Say goodbye to greasy and filthy dishwashers.
