Welcome to the first of my Random Product Reviews, lol.
Today I’ll be reviewing the Finish QUANTUM Dishwasher Detergent.
I have been washing dishes by hand my entire life (which at this point is 21 years, but since I probably didn’t start washing dishes until let’s say age 10, then let’s say I’ve been washing dishes by hand for about the last 10 years). That’s just the way I was taught and the way I grew up. (The fact that I never had a dishwashing machine could have contributed to it as well. And it could also be an Asian thing).
So when Mike and I moved into the our new home (which I still need to write a blog post about in and of itself), I wasn’t sure if I should start using the dishwasher that the kitchen came with. But Mike insisted that I give it a try so I did… and I hated it!
The first detergent brand we bought was Sunlight and it. is. so. bad.
Even when I pre-rinsed, it would still come grimy, streaky, just plain dirty. I was not impressed. I was about to switch back to washing dishes by hand altogether when Mike pointed out that we’ve only tried one detergent we should try a different one since Sunlight sucked so bad (logical fellow, he is).
And that’s where Finish QUANTUM dishwasher detergent comes in…
I LOVE IT!
It says it’s so powerful that you don’t even need to pre-rinse, which at first, since I was bitter about dishwashing machines and detergents, I didn’t believe. But I tried it without pre-rinsing and the dishes came out SO SHINY!
It’s apparently the #1 recommended brand by leading dishwashing manufacturers and promises amazing results and I can definitely vouch for that. We only bought a small pack because we were testing it out, but I can’t wait to go back and get the jumbo size!
@ChrisInRedDeer pointed out that QUANTUM is more expensive than most detergents. As I’m a dishwashing detergent newbie, I was not aware that this was more costly than the norm but I’d say the price is worth it.
I love the Finish QUANTUM Dishwasher Detergent and I definitely recommend it to all!
And so that’s my random product review of the day. Baha.
What do you think? What’s your favourite dishwashing detergent?
