How to Use Dishwasher Tablets:
Frequently Asked Questions


Dishwasher tablets are incredibly simple to use. If needed, remove any protective packaging (only some Finish tablets have wrapping that needs to be removed), pop the tablet into your detergent dispensing compartment, close the compartment, turn on your washing machine and let technology and Finish® handle the rest!

Detergent tablets should always be placed in the detergent dispenser compartment.

 

If you’re placing the tablet at the bottom of the dishwasher it’s likely that it will dissolve too quickly, releasing the detergent during the prewash and leaving no detergent for the main wash cycle. This will reduce the efficiency of your wash.

The standard shelf life of dishwasher tablets is two years but it’s best not to stockpile Finish® products in case the product and its packaging deteriorates over time.

 

While using an out-of-date dishwasher tablet isn’t going to cause any damage to your kitchenware or dishwasher, it may be less effective than when used within the correct timeframe.

Whether you need to remove the plastic from your dishwasher tablet depends on the product you have bought. If the tablet comes individually, loosely wrapped, like Finish Deep Clean Powerball tablets, you should remove the plastic wrap before using. If you bought Finish Quantum or Finish Max in 1, you do not need to remove any wrapper.

Dishwasher tablets should only go in the dishwasher detergent compartment of your dishwasher, not loose in the dishwasher itself.
