A clean kitchen helps me feel like I have a clean house. Even if it’s not true. When I buy dishes, glasses, and utensils I try to ensure they’re dishwasher safe because I hate doing dishes by hand. Inevitably there are some dishes I have to do by hand, but if given the choice into the dishwasher everything goes.
When we moved from Colorado to Texas, my usual natural rinse agent of vinegar stopped being effective. The hard water in Texas created buildup inside the dishwasher and all of our dishes had spots on them. The dishes were all clean and certainly sterilized, they just didn’t look it. I can’t tell you how embarrassing it is to have company over and have spots all over your glasses that make them look all murky and dirty.
Since moving here I’ve been going through a lot of trial and error trying to find a natural rinse aid that’s budget friendly and cost effective. My new secret for spotless (or nearly spotless) dishes is Finish Jet-Dry. This rinse aid truly has transformed how my dishes look. No longer do I have to worry about unsightly spots when company comes over because Jet-Dry takes care of those hard water build up problems for me.
During the holidays I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I cook dinner most nights and bake pretty regularly anyway but during the holidays I’m in the kitchen for hours on end. Extra cooking and entertaining means extra dishes to wash so it’s been a relief to have something that works so effectively. I still rinse dishes before placing them in the dishwasher because I’m a creature of habit and it’s something that I’ll probably always do, but if I don’t have the time I can quickly load the dishes and get back to my family. There’s nothing more important than spending time with family during the holidays and all year long, so any extra time I’m able to spend with them is a bonus for me.
