Usage instructions

Handle with dry hands only!

For best results, place one tablet in the dry dispenser and close. Do not unwrap the tablet. Use one tablet per wash load.

Optimal water temperature is between 125°F – 140°F. Finish tabs dissolve completely in wash cycle. If tablet does not fit, consult the dishwasher manufacturer or manual for advice.


Make sure all items are dishwasher safe and separate silver from stainless steel. Wash metal items according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Settling of tabs may occur in shipment. Always reseal bag after use. Store away from heat and moisture.

Finish detergent tablets are safe for septic systems. In hard water conditions, it may be necessary to continue to use Finish Jet-Dry Rinse Agent for optimal results. In extreme hard water conditions, monthly use of Finish Dishwasher Cleaner may be necessary for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

No! Pre-rinsing is a thing of the past. And although many do it, it’s time consuming and wastes up to 20 gallons of water per load! Modern detergents such as Finish Quantum contain both bleach and enzymes and are recommended by dishwasher manufacturers for use without pre-rinsing. Bleach fights tough stains like tea and coffee, and enzymes breakdown proteins and starches. All you have to do is scrape the larger pieces into the trash can and load your dishwasher.

Dishwasher tablets contain surfactants, which affect the liquid they are added to, making it more efficient at picking up and washing away debris. They also include enzymes (to break down starchy foods and protein), builders (to tackle hard water) and safe bleaches.

Once you’ve put your dishwasher tab into the detergent dispenser compartment, your machine will release the contents at the optimal time allowing the tab to disintegrate into the water, release all ingredients and clean your dishes!

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

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.
