Finish dishwasher detergent helps get a mom's dirty job done #sparklyclean #shop #collective bias

Time Saver, Sanity Saver

If there’s one thing this funny mom of four needs is good cleaning products to get the job done the first time. Having six people under one roof makes for a whole lot of dirty laundry, dirty dishes and dirty…everything. So I don’t mess around when it comes to buying cleaning products. I want good products that are going to clean, clean well and clean the first time around so that I don’t have to do the job a second, or third time. Finish dishwashing detergent helps this mom’s dirty job get done the first time and that’s not just a time saver, that’s a sanity saver.

Having four kids not only means that I need and expect good cleaning products but that I also expect every one to help out with chores around the house. I am thankful that my two year old (otherwise known as my baby-faced-peanut-head) loves helping me load and unload the dishwasher.

Funny Fact: I use my foot to close the dishwasher machine door and now apparently so does he as you can see in the bottom left picture below.

Powerball Clean

In fact, I started purchasing dishwashing detergent capsule gel packs instead of using a dishwashing liquid just so my 2 year old could help me. Putting the gel pack capsule in the dishwasher is his favorite part. After using Finish dishwashing capsules for awhile (that look like Pokemon balls right?!) I prefer them over dishwashing liquid. Each capsule contains 3 parts, a quick dissolving power gel (wash and shine), pre-soaking powerball (that breaks down stuck on food) and advanced powder with bleach (that gets rid of stains). Each Finish gel pack capsule cleans and shines my dishes the first time, every time AND they’re perfectly safe for my two year old to handle with hims whittle chubby hands.

Superior Clean at a Super Price

Getting my dishes clean the first time around is great, however getting my dishes clean at a less expensive price is better. Saving money is always at the forefront of my mind and anytime my favorite brands offer a coupon or are on sale I run to Walmart like a dog to a bone to snap up the deal. Right now the Finish family of products are on Rollback prices until October at Walmart and there is even a money saving coupon. Cha-ching!
