Finish Jet-Dry Review & Giveaway

Another huge part of being a mom is washing dishes. Just like laundry, it seems that no sooner have you finished emptying the dishwasher than it is filled again. Having a dishwasher can be a huge help but what happens when you find yourself pulling out less-than-clean glasses or plates? It is so frustrating to have to re-wash dishes when they should have been clean the first time.

Our dishwasher is getting old and I’ve found myself needing to re-wash dishes after they were cleaned many times in the last few months. So do we need a new dishwasher or do we just need some help from a product like Finish Jet-Dry?

Normally food and chemicals can stick around and leave a residue on glasses and dishes, resulting in a less-than-clean appearance. Finish Jet-Dry advanced rinsing agent works with your dishwasher detergent by washing away this residue with its powerful formula. It doesn’t stop there; it helps prevent the need to towel-dry dishes by eliminating all moisture during the dry cycle.

I received a sample of Finish Jet-Dry to try out about a week ago. As I added it to the dishwasher that night, I told Nate that I wasn’t sure it would help with our yucky dishwasher but I’d give it a try.

A week later and it suddenly occurred to me that I haven’t had to re-wash any dishes all week! Everything has been sparkling clean! From the glasses to the plates to the silverwear, there has been a noticeable difference.

My dishwasher is also notorious for not drying everything completely. With our new Finish Jet-Dry, there was still a little water left on the kids’ cups, but the tops of the mugs and plastic items were now completely dry.

I am pretty frugal and until now, a rinse agent was one of those things I wasn’t willing to spend the money on. But now that I’ve been given the chance to try out the Finish Jet-Dry rinse agent, I can tell you it’s definitely worth it for the amount of time and frustration it saves me. You only need to add it about once a month and the small cost of  around $3.99 a bottle is very reasonable.

If you’re like me and haven’t thought a rinse agent worth it, I urge you to check out Finish Jet-Dry! The little bottle has some pretty powerful stuff in it!

Win It!

I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Finish and received a Finish Jet-Dry product sample to facilitate my review, a sample to giveaway, and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

  23. I put my everyday dishes in the dishwasher BUT I never put my good dishes and stemware in it. I’ll be using these for the holidays. These I hand wash which I don’t really mind except that I HATE to wear vinyl gloves on my hands when I wash anything. So, my hands get rough & dry from the dishwashing liquid. :-(

  26. I hate having to dry the dishes. I mean, my dish washer always breaks down, so I have to wash by hand. But every time I wash a few dishes, I have to stop for a minute to dry them, so that I don’t leave wet dishes around on the table. It is very irritating.

    I never realized that jet dry helped to leave your dishes dryer until I read this review, seems obvious now based on the name of it lol

  57. How funny…I never considered that Jet “Dry” left my dishes dryer! Makes sense!!

  58. Cheryl Barnett Saves says:

    I got some in the mail and was glad I did. I have very hard water in my area but this left my dishes clean and shiny.

  59. I love the look of the bottle for this one! It looks so sleek compared to most!

  60. I like the finish jet dry very much. I find it to clean well and my kids have a habit of not rinsing the dishes before putting in dishwasher.

    I have to use Jet Dry in my dishwasher every time it is ran. My water is so hard that if it is not in there, the dishes do not come clean so Jet Dry is like a staple in my household.

  62. We used to use this and it worked fabulously! I’m not quite sure why I stopped. Thanks for the reminder!

  63. I get so sick of rewashing dishes, I will have to try this

    I hate having to rewash dishes after theyve been in the dishwasher! Jet dry prevents that & keeps my dishes squeeky clean. I love it!

  65. Janelle Dorsey says:

    I have never thought to use the finish jet dry. Your review sounded just like me. It frustrates me to no end when the dishes are finished and they are still dirty. I will definitely give this product a try.

  66. Keri Ritenour says:

    I recently had a friend that moved to a new city. I was visiting her last week and she showed me the stains and hard water marks that her dishwasher was leaving on all her dishes. I recommended she try Jet Dry and she loved it. She cannot believe how great her dishes look. Great stuff!

  67. I sampled a rinse agent before but the brand was unknown to me. While I did notice it definitely helped as a drying agent, it kept leaving spots on my dishes that were never there before. I’m glad to hear there’s one out there that really works. I used to feel the same as you about it not being necessary, but now I’d like to give it another try!

  68. We love this stuff! Have tried a bunch of others, but always go back to Finish

  69. Tiffany Shanklin says:

    I am glad I read this review, I have been wanting to try it but wasn’t sure if it would work or not and I just didnt want to spend the money if it didnt!!

  70. Valari Avilez says:

    I don’t like washing dishes. This stuff is awesome!

  71. Jerri Davis

    Nice Packaging. Thank you. Jerri Davis

  72. Erica Early says:

    I just bought the store brand dishwashing soap and will NEVER buy that again. I think my dishes were dirtier after running it with that soap! :( Thanks for this review, I will have to try it!
