Finish Dishwasher Cleaner

I’ve lived in five different countries with my husband and daughter and one of the least favorites about living in different countries is the move.

No matter how clean a place looks when first inspected, you find hidden dirt. I wouldn’t say I’m a clean freak but what I would say is this: kitchens and bathrooms need to be clean.  Out of all the appliances in the kitchen, the dishwasher tends to get the most neglect.  A dishwasher is your kitchen workhorse.

It’s easy to think all one needs to do to clean a dishwasher is to run it and wipe down the door but you’d be mistaken.  I was never lucky enough to use a new dishwasher in any of our 11 moves and cannot tell you how many times I had to clean one.  Mineral buildup, lime scale, food debris, soap residue, and grease collect in the hidden parts of a dishwasher.  Filters, spray-arms and pipes are areas one cannot ‘see’ and therefore you think all is ok on the surface.  It can be one of the reasons for a ‘strange’ odor coming from the unit.  Bacteria thrive in warm, moist, and dark places (especially corners and crevices).

On one of our moves, the dishwasher was gross; dirty on the inside and smelly.  I went hunting for a product that would give the dishwasher a good cleaning and found Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner. I popped the bottle upside down on the bottom rack and turned the dishwasher on the hottest cycle.  The result?  The odor was eliminated and the insides actually looked brighter (insert happy face here).  It’s recommended to repeat this process once a month.

We bought a new home three years ago and even though our dishwasher is new-ish, I still use Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner. It helps protect our investment.

The Culinary Chase’s Note:  Before you start your dishwasher, always run the hot water tap first.  This not only clears the drain, especially if you have a garbage disposal, but increases the internal water temperature.  There’s nothing worse than trying to clean a dishwasher with warm or cool water.

Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner is available at Loblaws, Walmart, RCSS, Canadian Tire, No Frills, Sobeys, Metro, Food Basics, Fresh Co at $4.99. To learn more about the Finish® line of products, don’t forget to follow them on Facebook and YouTube!

Finish® wants you to see for yourself how great their dishwasher cleaner is so they’re holding a contest in which one winner will receive a spa getaway to the Caribbean! Simply leave a review on their Facebook page and you’ll be entered to win.

About Heather Chase

The Culinary Chase was coined by my husband whilst in a coffee shop in Hong Kong back in 2006. We wanted something that would be a play on my last name and by the time we finished our coffee, the name was born. As long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed cooking. It wasn’t until we moved to Asia that I began to experiment using herbs and spices in my everyday cooking. Not only do they enhance the flavor of food but also heighten it nutritionally. Over the years, I began to change our diet to include more vegetables, pulses, whole grains and less red meat. Don’t get me wrong, we love our meat, just not in super-size portions (too hard for the body to digest). I always use the palm of my hand as a guide to portion control when eating red meat. If the meat is larger than my hand, I save that portion for another day. Also, if the veggies on your plate look colorful (think the colors of the rainbow) – red, green, yellow, orange etc. then you’re most likely getting the right amount of nutrients per meal. I post recipes that I think help maintain a healthy body. I use the 80/20 rule – 80% of the time I make a conscious effort to eat healthy and 20% for when I want french fries with gravy (poutine). Balance is the key and to enjoy life with whatever comes my way. Thanks for visiting!
