FINISH Quantum Blog Tour & Giveaway (Five Winners)




If there is one thing I hate, its having spots on my dishes. Its always annoying, but  this time of year, when we have lots of company coming over, it can also be embarrassing. I have tried the bargain brands of dish washer detergent, but they just don't cut it. Who wants to wash the dishes by hand before you put them in the dishwasher? What's the point of having a dishwasher if you have to do that? When it comes to getting my dishes sparkling clean FINISH has always been one of my favorite brands. But the FINISH Quantum gives new meaning to clean. The power ball action  will take off all of  the messy grease and crusty build ups.  Its wrapper free and biodegradable so its not hurting the environment. And it dissolves completely in the wash cycle. Add in a little  Jet Dry Turbo Dry,  and dishes will be so clean and shiny, they will sparkle like diamonds.  One bottle of Jet Dry will last for 65 wash loads so there is no reason not to give it a try. It really makes a big difference in the way your dishes will look.




As if all that isn't exciting enough, FINISH was some more exciting news to share. They were recently featured on an episode of Designing Spaces. The segment provides an excellent overview of the dos and don’ts of dish washing. You can check out the video here. To learn more about FINISH and their family of products, you can visit their website. While you're there, be sure to print out some coupons to save up to $3.00.

And now for the giveaway. Five very lucky winners are all going to receive a package of the FINISH Quantum and a bottle of Jet Dry Turbo Dry.  To enter, check out the Designing Spaces Video and tell me something you learned.  This will be the only entry for this one. This giveaway is open to the US only and will end on 12/11/10. Winners will be chosen at random and will  have 48 hours to respond.  Enter by leaving a comment below. Thanks to Mom Central and Jet Dry for sponsoring this wonderful giveaway!





***I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of FINISH and received a sample of FINISH Quantum and JET-DRY Turbo Dry. Mom Central Consulting also sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.***

Not to toot my own horn or anything, but honestly I didn't learn anything that I didn't already know in that vid. I could see how it could be helpful to some though. What I want to know is why dish manufacturers still make dishes that are not dishwasher safe! This is the 21st century, people! Nobody should have to hand wash anything any more. Barbaric!

I rather agree with any earlier post that I didn't learn anything I didn't already know--with all the messages about not letting water run, it isn't rocket science to know that you can waste a lot of it by pre-rinsing dishes.
