Finding the right dishwasher detergent {Giveaway}


If you’ve been following along with my FINISH posts, you’ll know that I’m a changed woman when it comes to my dish cleaning habits. Before becoming a FINISH Ambassador, I wasn’t a FINISH customer but I am now, and forever will be. I’ve had such a great experience putting FINISH Quantum to the test!

Today you can enter to win 2 boxes of FINISH Quantum to try it out for yourself and I guarantee once you try it  you’ll never go back. I’m also going to share some tips to finding the right dishwasher detergent and you’ll find out why FINISH is the way to go.


There are two types of cleaning agents that make up dishwasher detergents:

  1. Enzymes cleaning agent:  break down protein and starch stains. You’ll know that your detergent includes enzymes if your dishes covered in eggs, oatmeal or macaroni & cheese come out clean. If your washes are leaving these foods behind then your detergent probably doesn’t have the enzymes cleaning agent.
  2. Bleach cleaning agent: likes higher a temperature wash and will pick up where enzymes left off in the wash cycle.


FINISH Quantum contains both the enzymes and bleach cleaning agents. This is important for a couple of different reasons:

  1. Enzymes are effective in lower temperature washes like at the beginning of the wash cycle. As the main wash goes on, the temperature increases and enzymes die off at 140 degrees.
  2. As mentioned above, the bleach picks up where the enzymes left off.  Normally Enzymes are killed by bleach, which is why gels don’t work as well; bleach would kill enzymes before usage.  The Quantum capsules protect the enzymes from the bleach because the wall in the tab separates it them.
