Having your friends and family over during the holidays is one of the best things about summer. Christmas Day is renowned as being the #1 exciting day of the year for getting the kids together and sitting down for a memorable meal. Once all the entertaining is done though, there’s the dreaded clean up that can sometimes make those special occasions end up feeling like a chore.


Never fear, Finish is here to take the hard work out of cleaning up after those Holiday Season good times.


To ensure it’s effortless, it’s important to make sure your dishwasher is ready for Christmas too. This is something that’s easily overlooked, but over time grease and limescale builds up in the vital parts of your dishwasher’s filters, spray arms, pipes, water pumps and drains. These need to be cleaned to ensure your dishwasher keeps performing at its optimum level.


If you look closely you’ll notice small holes (water outlets) along the spray-arms. Its good practice to clear any built up grime that may be blocking water-flow from these by using a toothpick or something similar. Another area that’s prone to collecting debris is the waste water drain at the base of your dishwasher, under the bottom spinning-arm. The grill is usually pretty effective in preventing food items from seeping through, but making a habit out of lifting the grill every couple of weeks to have a quick look always helps in preventing a situation that may require you to source and pay for external help.
