Every single glass we use is covered in hard water stains.
At our last family get together, my sister asked for a sip of water. As I handed her the glass, I felt the need to explain, “These glasses really are clean, they just look dirty.”
“Eww, gross. They do look dirty,” she laughed.
I felt myself blushing as I repeated, “they really are clean.”
That’s when I knew that I needed to find a new dishwasher detergent.
After comparison shopping at Walmart, I decided to try Finish Quantum Power and Free along with the All in 1 detergent booster and the rinse aid. (I believe in letting all of the products work together for maximum results.)
With different products to put in the dishwasher, I decided to make labels to show which product to put where. (I say I made it for my daughter since unloading and loading the dishes is her chore, but truth be told, I’m the one who forgets.)
First, I emptied the detergent and booster into jars that I had on hand.
Tip: The easiest way I have found to remove labels and sticky residue from jars is with a good ol’ SOS pad. I’ve tried peanut butter, olive oil, alcohol…you name it. The scrubbing pads are the quickest and most efficient.
I traced the words “Pre Wash” and “Main Wash” onto the jars using a removable letter stencil and glass paint markers.
I’m not one to measure so the labels aren’t perfectly straight. (I’m pretending that it’s okay with me.)
And I used a q-tip to wipe away smudges and bleeding.
I am so glad, thankful even, that now I can set the table and serve guests without having to explain my clean, but dirty dishes.
If you want to give Finish a try, Walmart has a Rollback on Finish products until October that you can combine with this coupon for extra #SparklySavings.
See you in class,
