Dishwashing tips I found helpful from #FinishRevolution

As part of the #FinishRevolution blogger program I was invited to take part in a Webinar filled with dish washing tips for your dishwasher. I did not attend the webinar but through the magic of internet I was able view it all later once I got home.

For the last 22 years of owning a dishwasher here I thought you only had to put the dishes in and press the button. I have learned so much about the science behind dishwasher detergents and taking proper care of my dishwasher. Here are some of the things I learned as a result of this program:
  • dishwashers need hot water to function properly at least (120*)
  • nesting your dishes in the dishwasher while loading prevents the water from circulating properly
  • pots and pans can go in the dishwasher along with stainless steel water bottles (I can hear all your sports moms cheering already about that.)
  • a pre-rinse is not required if you are using a quality detergent
  • storing your detergent under the sink is one of the worse places as it is usually moist there and that activates your detergent even before it used in the dishwasher
One of the most important things I have learned is that 80% of time repair technicians are called in, there’s nothing wrong with dishwasher.

Here are some things I have done to help my dishwasher work more effectively ...
  • I have cleaned my dishwasher with FINISH® Dishwasher Cleaner
  •  I have stopped nesting my dishes and allowed to water to flow to the top
  • I double checked the temperature of my water
  • I have switched to the Quantum tabs indefinitely
  • moved where I store my detergent
I want to thank Mom Central Canada and Finish Canada for this opportunity that has now my dishwasher to run more efficiently.
