Show your dishwasher some love with these tips from Finish.

Signs you need to clean your dishwasher

You’ll know it’s time to give your dishwasher a good clean if you keep an eye out for these signs:

  • A smell inside the dishwasher
  • Grease in the filter
  • Grime around the edges inside the dishwasher
  • Lime-scale and grease build-up in the sprayer arms

How to use Finish Dishwasher Cleaner

Want to make your dishwasher sparkle without scrubbing? Finish Dishwasher Cleaner breaks down and removes grease and lime-scale inside your dishwasher, including those tough spots like the sprayer arms and pipes.

  1. Use only in an empty dishwasher and follow pack directions..
  2. Don’t use with dishwasher detergent or soap.
  3. Only remove the sticker, not the cap.
  4. Place the bottle upside-down in the lower dish rack with cross bar to prevent cap contact with spray arm, like you would place a plate, keeping the cap closed.
  5. Close the door and start a dishwashing cycle on the hottest/most intense setting available (minimum 65°C).
  6. Once the cycle is complete and the dishwasher has turned off, take out the bottle and dispose of it.
  7. You may need to repeat this process if your dishwasher has extreme build-up.
  8. Use regularly.
