Finish Dishwasher Giveaway

I am long on record as not being a fan of washing up. At all. I have even rated recipes based on a “washing-up index” (lots of washing up = bad score).

It’s a pretty joyless diversion really, the washing-up, it’s wet and messy and sticky. The dish rack is always full, or so it seems, and there’s always a pile to the right of the sink of dishes waiting to go into the dishwasher or to be washed themselves.

I hate it. I hate the pickled hands, the food residue, all of it. I also hate scraping plates for the dishwasher, the smell of the dishwasher when you open it before you put it on, and emptying the dishwasher. I’m lucky really though as anything my dishwasher can’t manage my live-in dishwasher (aka husband) usually volunteers to take care of (I think it’s a quality control thing, my washing up is not up to scratch tee hee)

Recently, (not that recently though, in fact ages ago, this post is way overdue) Finish sent me a pack of dishwasher products to try out.


They smell nice and work well, especially the Apple Lime one (doesn’t it sounds like a great cocktail?) but alas I still have to do all the horrible dirty-dish-related jobs that will only be alleviated by (1) aforementioned live-in staff or (2) the environmental no-no of only using disposable plates and cutlery. I guess option (3) would be to only ever eat out, but that would require a lotto win, and sometimes you just want tea and toast at home.When Finish contacted me I also asked them if I they could teach me how to load my dishwasher correctly and they kindly sent me this video which you might find helpful too.

However, this strategy from the Oatmeal really suits me better. (I’m the one who’s learning not teaching in this comic strip). Read it HERE.


Finish have also offered a second dishwasher pack for readers of Bumbles of Rice  which contains the same products that I received:

  • Finish Rinse Aid Lemon 400ml
  • Finish Performance Enhancing Dishwasher Salt 2kg
  • Finish Dishwasher Cleaner 250ml
  • Finish Quantum Max with Power-Ball, Apple Lime Blast x 40

Competition closes on 26th October. Part of this giveway is hosted on facebook but it is not associated with facebook. UK & Ireland residents only. The prize will be provided directly by Finish. I did not receive payment for this post but received products to try for myself (and my dishwasher).
