Finish Quantum with New Power Gel: Review and Giveaway


I'm a generic buyer. What else would you expect from a complete and utter tightarse like myself? So does it surprise you to know I use one of the more expensive dish washing tablets found on the supermarket shelf?

It wasn't always the case though. I used to use generic branded powder, whatever cost the least. A few years back I was watching a friend stack her dishwasher after a hideously messy meal. Each plate was loaded with scraps of leftovers of saucy meat and creamy cheese stuck, remnants of our demolished lasagna that night.

I was shocked to see her just stacking each plate without another glance. I would have rinsed every single plate thoroughly first, removing all food scraps. Otherwise, I would be pretty much guaranteed to be scraping off food and rewashing plates by hand afterwards, and since I hate washing dishes almost as much as I hate ironing, I would rather take the time to rinse when the food is still rinsable.

I figured my friend was a dishwasher rookie, but she just laughed at me. Turns out, dish washing powder is one area that tightarsery does not pay. Her dishes all came out looking like an advertisement for Finish - sparkling and spotless. Without any of the rinsing effort I go to.

This is last nights dinner - nice and messy spaghetti, with our bowls all goopy going straight into the dishwasher with no prerinse. As promised, everything comes out spotless once a Finish tablet goes in.


If you want to source your Finish products on the cheap, I find mine on sale through the various group purchase sites (Groupon, Scoopon, Living Social, etc), and occasionally pick it up cheap in the supermarkets. Watch the catalogues for sales. I picked up this pack this week on the clearance rack - x4 of them! $2.70 for almost $20 worth of product!
