Starting the #CleanItForward Challenge with #FinishMoms

I love my dishwasher. Going without one for a few years made me really appreciate the luxury of not sinking my hands into dirty dish water each day. That being said, I kind of have high expectations for the automated dishwashing process. If I’ve got to thoroughly rinse off each dish and they aren’t completely clean after running a cycle, then what’s the point, right? Exactly.
IMG_4520A rinser I am not, but a crammer I am!

Dishwasher detergent, garbage bags, and flour are three things I refuse to buy generic and am willing to spend a little more money on. Finish is one of a very few select brands of dishwasher detergent I use and I was excited to hear about their new formula with less harmful chemicals!
finish power and free
Making the switch to a more natural home environment is something we are in the process of doing (more about that in tomorrow’s post) and the Finish Power & Free Product Range aligns with that goal. What makes Power & Free different from other formulas?

  • Finish Power & Free detergents feature Hydrogen Peroxide Action and power away the toughest food messes
  • The detergents contain no chlorine bleach, and use less fragrances and dyes versus regular Finish detergents
  • Finish Jet-Dry® Power & Free contains less harsh chemicals versus the regular formula

This is good news for us as Sweet T has an obsession with her olfactory receptors. Interpretation: she loves to smell things. Including dishwasher detergent tabs. Sigh.

So does the new formula indeed provide adequate dishwashing power while being free from some of the chemicals in traditional formulas? See for yourself!


Yes, we really do drink out of Mason jars around here.

  1. Love the coupons! I have been wanting to try this brand for a while now, our current detergent just isn’t doing the trick.

  2. I really wish I had a dishwasher.

  3. Drinking out of Mason jars……’s a southern thing

  4. I drink out Mason jars, too. My husband thought it was the weirdest thing at first. 😀 But anyways, I need to give Finish try since I’m currently not satisfied with the brand I am using now.

  5. I’ve never tried Finish. Might have to take a look at it!

  6. Finish works really well for us, too. My daughter loves to drink out of Mason jars :)

  7. Yep. Mason jars are definitely a southern thing! :)

  8. We drink out of jars too 😉 I love that this has less chemicals, we are doing what we can to reduce the chemicals in our home.

  9. I’ve tried this brand. It works pretty good. I love mason jars, but I got rid of ours when the boys were small because they kept breaking them.

  10. We didn’t have a dishwasher the first few years that we were married too and it definitely makes you appreciate them!

  11. I’ve been using a different one of the Power & Free detergents & it is amazing! I don’t notice a difference between it & the regular Finish {which is what I already used} &to have less chemicals with all the efficiency is amazing.

  12. FInish is one brands I like and use. We really need a new dishwasher. This one is old and way past it’s day and just isn’t getting it done any more.

  13. I admit I am a die hard fan of their competitor, but I like the idea of the less chemicals. i may give them a try!

  14. We drink out of mason jars too. Best glasses around imo

  15. Thanks for the coupon! I will have to put it to the test.

  16. I love these tabs and almost always use them! We bought a different brand for a good sale recently and I remembered now why I stopped buying them.

  17. I love how well these tabs work. We’ve been using them for a about a month now.
