I’ll be honest . . . I had never used a rinse agent in my dishwasher until about a week ago when I received a sample of Finish Jet-Dry.
I was excited to try it out, though a little confused. I couldn’t find any instructions on the bottle itself (though that doesn’t necessarily mean they weren’t there . . . ). However, when I looked at my dishwasher, sure enough there was a twist-off cap in the door that was clearly labeled “Rinse Aid”.
Once I unscrewed the lid on the dishwasher compartment, it was very clear where the Jet-Dry was supposed to go. The bottle I had was the exact amount that my compartment said it would hold, so I put it all in.
I didn’t really know what to expect, especially since I generally don’t bemoan minor spots on my dishes, but I was very pleased at how sparkly my dishes looked, particularly the glossy ceramic ones.
It has definitely been nice that my fun and bright Christmas dishes looked even brighter this season!
I decided to really put it to the test, though, with some stainless steel utensils.
The difference isn’t huge, but there is a difference. I feel like there’s some water-spot-build-up on them, and perhaps it will get better the more I use it.
While minor water-spots don’t drive me bonkers, I so wish I would have tried Jet-Dry where we used to live. Our water there was insanely hard and the dishes always looked awful. (Edited to add: I have no idea if Jet-Dry would take care of the hard-water issues, but searching online makes it seem that people do use it for that! No claims here, but I definitely wish I had tried it there!)
Honestly, my favorite thing about this product is that is memory-free. Meaning . . . it provides an extra benefit, without an extra step! Once you fill the rinse agent dispenser with Jet-Dry, it’s automatically released each time you run your dishwasher. You can find out more at the Finish website.
I also get to give away a sample of Finish Jet-Dry to one of you! (NOTE: Giveaway has ended.) Just leave a comment on this post, and I’ll choose a winner on Thursday at noon Central time.

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.
