Electrasol Finish Quantum Powerball Dish Detergent Review and Giveaway

I am absolutely thrilled to have been invited to do this review.? I hate hand washing anything. I grew up in a world of dishpans and dishpan hands. I welcomed my dishwasher back then even more than my washing machine. Over the years I have tried powders, liquids, and various packets. I have been buying Electrosol faithfully for many reasons.

Even though I received a sample of Finish Jet Dry along with my box of Electrasol Finish Powerball Dish Detergent, I wanted to know for myself what the product could do on its own. I ran three test runs with the Finish on my Maytag – light, regular, and heavy. The results are in. Everything meaning pots, pans, serving utensils, dishes, and glass wear all were 100% clean no matter what cycle or water temperature I selected. Wow! The glassware sparkled – no streaks The plastic containers looked new – no tomato stains. The frying pan squeaked – no grease. It got coffee stains out of the glass pot unfinished from weekend entertaining. It got the worn in discolor from my teapot, a wonder since I use it 24-7. It even managed to remove the residue off a burnt-on baking sheet that I had spent previous days soaking in dish detergent. It really is amazing. Another money saver is the $$$ I won’t need to spend on lotion for dish pan hands.

I can say with complete honestly that I love the packaging. The multi-chamber system, measured and wrapper free, is precise and convenient. No more pouring powder or liquid into a cup then hoping that the door will open. No more trying to get the competition’s stuck together packets apart without falling apart in my hands. It does leave an amazing shine. It looks like this new product and its new name Finish will give me even more reason to keep using this product.

My dishes looked great without having used the rinse agent.?I can’t wait to see what happend when I use the FINISH Jet Dry I received.

  4. Cherise –

    I was able to triple those coupons from the newspaperon the FINISH and it was on sale so I’m stocked up!



  5. Presently we have Cascade but often times we use the store brand name. Thanks for having the wonderful giveaway.

  6. We use Electrasol… from all those great coupons last month! Thanks for the chance.

  7. Stacey,

    I’m a big coupon shopper. I was lucky and also found a great deal on this FINISH and got to use triple coupons too!



  8. Right now, I use Cascade…..it seems to work pretty well…but, I would really LOVE to try something that is less of a mess than pouring!

  9. I use whatever I have a coupon for….Electrasol, Cascade, etc.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  10. Dear Carol,

    Electrasol is what the majority have replied so far.

    Thanks for visiting and entering.


  11. Dear Kendra,

    Lots of people replying Electrasol. If you liked the old one you’ll love this new one!

    Thanks for visiting and entering.


  12. Dear Andrea,

    I love coupons! I never shop without mine. I don’t think I’ve tried the Walmart brand yet. I just found a great deal on this FINISH and got to use triple coupons too!


    1. Dear Janet,
      I love that kitty on your site. I see that you really like shopping and reviewing.

  13. Dear Chrisatine,

            I think I have tried everything on the market but that last one.  Will look next time in the cleaning aisle of my local supermarket.



    1. Dear Linda,
      Look for a sale and use the coupons that you can print. This one is the best.

    1. Dear Vivian,
      That is great. Husbands and wives should help one another in this modern world–way too busy.

  14. I actually started using this one and I am hooked! It gets your dishes spotless and a shine to the dishes! Count me in!

    1. Dear Cassandra,
      I do that a lot too. watch for sales and coupons then try it.

    1. Dear Wehaf,
      I have previous to finding the tabs. Watch for a sale and pair it with a coupon then try it.

  15. I’d love to try this 😀 We are currently using Cascade and are new to the world of dishwasher detergents as our new place has one and we’re just getting used ti it 😀

    1. Dear Lauren,
      I use my dishwasher for everything now even sterilizing baby bottles (not nipples thouogh.After 37 years without one, I am used to it bigtime!

  16. I buy whatever is on sale, which means sometimes I get very mediocre results. Right now I have cascade which is good but i notice some of the glasses arent coming out crystal clean like i’d like. I’d love to try this product.

    1. Dear Victoria,
      I understand the bottom line word price. Most stores will take four of the same coupon–nice to know when there is a sale. I used to get several Sunday papers because of that. If you have a product and need to rewash, avoid that product again. The cost of washiing dishes has to include the cost of the water and its heating.

  17. Dear Selene,

          I am surprised that so many subscribers just use the email.  So many different ways to get around nowadays.


  18. Dear Selene,

           I am hoping to have mine scheduled soon.  It is easier with support and inspiration.  That’s my girl.


  19. I commented on your daughter’s post – Weighty Words – The Last Supper – and learned she was having lap band surgery. I wish her the a speedy recuperation.

    1. Dear Selene,
      My daughter decided on this the right way by reading, discussing this with people who knew from first hand experience, and from many consults with doctors. It is the best way to make any decision. I am going to follow her lead if they ever straignten out my insurance.

  20. Dear Jackie,

          You are not alone.  The Sun packets in the box I bought stuck together then disintegrated when I tried to separate them.  So much for precise measuring since I hate waste.



  21. Dear Jackie,

          I never thought I would have anything more thanan email.  Now look at me.  I surprised myself.



  22. Dear Maureen,

         It is where I usually stay.  Every now and theen I get brilliant asnd turn off the heat then get wet dishes when I unload.



  23. Dear Jackie,

          I am very proud of that writer’s skills.  She writes well.  I wonder who taught her.
