This post is brought to you by Finish and The Co.

I like my home to be clean. Like, really clean.  I work from home, so if I’m sitting at my desk and look around, only to see MESS… it just does not fly.  I physically can’t get my work done.  Having said all that, with two young kids, I find myself in a constant state of ‘tidying’, and I feel like I don’t always have a chance to do some of the deep cleaning that our home (often desperately) needs.

It’s a great thing that spring is in the air and deep cleaning is what spring is all about.  Right?! Something I learned way too late in life is that having the right tools and products makes cleaning SUCH an easy task.  I have spent too many hours doing unnecessary scrubbing and soaking, when really, it’s the products being used that really make all the difference. Another life lesson that took me longer to learn than preferable is that things like washing machines and dishwashers need to be deep cleaned.  Like, from the inside out.  Our stainless steel dishwasher gets a really awesome wipe down a few times a week, to make it sparkly and clean, but what about all that gunk that builds up on the INSIDE?



In the pictures above, what you are seeing is our dishwasher BEFORE we used Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner. It actually kind of grosses me out.  That gunk gets swished around in the water that cleans our dishes!  I feel kind of embarrassed that I even let that happen.  All good though, because look at what our dishwasher looks like AFTER a cycle using Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner



Bye bye lime, scale and grease buildup!  It’s not super easy to see just how big the difference is by looking at the photos.  You’re going to have to try it yourself to see how shiny and clean your dishwasher can be! 

The thing is that deep cleaning your dishwasher means getting into the hidden and vital parts: The filters, the spray arms and the pipes. It’s not purely what you see when you open up your dishwasher, it goes deeper than that! Other than the fact that we now have a nice clean inside of our dishwasher, I also loved how easy it was to use Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner.  You literally peel off the sticker, place it upside down on the bottom rack of your dishwater and run the dishwasher on the hottest setting. That’s it!



Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner has 5x power actions. It maintains your machine, removes lime scale, clears grease and cleans hidden parts of the machine; all while freshening the dishwasher.  If you haven’t deep cleaned your dishwasher, now is the time! If you already know the power of Finish® Dishwasher Cleaner, here’s your reminder to go grab a bottle and start your spring cleaning routine off right!
