Finish, You Complete Me #FinishRiseandShine

Latina On a Mission has partnered with Finish® to review Finish® Quantum® with New Power Gel 10-Pack.

Awww Kitchen, how I love and hate thee. The food and memories you’ve given me over the years have filled me with joy. Yet, the dishes, oh the dishes, they’re never-ending. They are one of the top reasons I loathe thee.

Do you have the same type of relationship with your kitchen? I have to admit I thought once I had my boys, my dish washing days would be over. I dreamed of assigning them that dreaded chore, as my Mom once did to me, and I am sure my boys will one day do to their own children, but the joke was on me. I’m such a perfectionist, I hate seeing dishes left on the counter and since I detest when the dish washing machine leaves residue, I end up doing them myself.

So, color me happy when Finish approached me to partner with them on the #FinishRiseandShine  challenge. I couldn’t pass it up, I had to say Sí/Yes! If it could save me from dish washing doldrums and provide me with squeaky clean dishes, I was all for it! Even better, if the Finish® Quantum® with New Power Gel 10-Pack could make my dishes shine, with an “ultimate clean & amazing shine”, without wasting my time with pre-rinsing, then I could finally enjoy my kitchen time.

To test out the capsules, I made white rice with pollo guisado/stewed chicken. It’s the perfect weekday dish, simple and sabroso/tasty.

As you can see by the almost licked off plate Andrew, my tween, loves pollo guisado! Yet, as hard as he tried he left some streaks of stew – he wanted to lick it but I didn’t let him. :)

I inserted one capsule in the dishwasher.

Tada, the finished product! Can you see the shine in the picture? It’s so clean you see the word “Finish” reflected in the plate!

    My problem is when the dishwasher is finished the dishes don’t jump into the cupboards when they belong and lord knows no one can help them.
    By the way that pollo guisado looks really good.
