Finish Giveaway

My Dishwasher

Plates and bowls, cups and glasses, filling up each tray;

Big spoons, little spoons, knives & forks, they weigh you down each day.

You work so hard week in, week out, cleaning up our wares

Sometimes more than once a day, you’re the dishwasher that cares.

I feed you well I’d like to think,

You keep me sane and from the sink.

So, especially for you I supply the very best,

The ones that do the greatest job & stand up to the test.

Your task, it isn’t easy, the water here is hard!

Luckily you like a challenge & are always on your guard.

Exfoliate with salt, followed by a cleaner,

A little lemon to aid the rinse, then a liquitab for dinner.

A perfect ‘Finish’ to your day, my hardworking friend,

A member of the family for whom this ode is penned.


As you can tell, we (me!) would be absolutely lost without our dishwasher, with 7 of us in our household it is not unusual for it to be on twice a day. With that in mind and the fact that we have very hard water, it is important to use quality dishwasher products, it pays on the long run, cheaper alternatives combined with hard water can result in needing to replace appliances more frequently.

I always use Finish products in my dishwasher, they provide me with the best results, and keep my machine running to the best of it’s ability, considering the condition of the water in our area. If you have hard water in your area, you should take a few minutes to read this hard water information page, it dispels quite a few myths!


The lovely people at Finish kindly supplied me with some complimentary products to use in my dishwasher, and not only that, they have given me a second bundle to give away to one of you!!

  1. Done and crossing fingers here now; I lived for two years without the dishwasher and now that I have one again I LOVE it, and finish products are great!

  2. Love the poem 🙂
    Finish is the only thing we use here too. Tried cheaper alternatives but they don’t clean as well. Dee (It begins with a verse)

  3. I can’t see my original comment… I was trying to match you with a wee ditty, but I failed miserably on both accounts!! I’d love to win this, as a family slightly bigger than yours, our dishwasher is a hardworking beast (but most beloved by me)

    1. I’d love to see your ditty Emily – that sounds so rude!!-lol 😀 I bet your dishwasher and my dishwasher would love afternoon tea together, they’d lament the days they arrived in our kitchens! 😉 Best of luck!

  4. Similar to Emily (without the ditty) my dishwasher never stops, its the heart of the home, we inherited it with the house and before us a single guy lived here – I bet its cursing the day we moved in!! Would love to win this 🙂
