The benefits of dishwashing tablets

Dishwashers make kitchen clean-up simple, but you can make the process even easier! Make your dishwasher even more efficient by substituting your standard powdered detergent with dishwashing tablets.

When you combine tasks into a single product, you make running your dishwasher a more convenient process. For example, with a product like the Finish All in 1 Powerball tabs, you get the pre-wash, wash and rinse cycles all in one tablet. You won’t have to spend your time soaking and scrubbing your dishes before you put them in the dishwasher or buffing out spots after you run the cycle.


Dishwashing tablets regulate how much soap you use every time you run your dishwasher. One of the ways to cause damage to your dishwasher is to use too much soap with each cycle. Suds build up and can cause your dishwasher to run ineffectively or to break down completely, and dishwasher repairs can be costly. To prevent problems, make sure you’re using the right amount of detergent with each load. The little built-in dispensers have lines, but they’re tough to read and big boxes of dishwasher detergent can pour out too quickly. Using a dishwashing tablet ensures that the right amount is used with each wash.


Because tablets deliver a precise amount of detergent and rinse aid (in some formulations) in a single serving, ultimately you will use less product per wash. By using less soap each time you run your dishwasher, less soap enters the water treatment system. Over time, with one simple substitution, you will lessen the burden on water treatment plants and keep extra soap out of our waterways.


Yes, saving time and being sustainable are great benefits. But one of the greatest benefits to using dishwashing tablets? Saving money! Because you use less product per wash, you don’t have to buy as much detergent. Plus, because all-in-one tablets keep your dishwasher running efficiently, you will save on repairs and possibly even prolong the life of your dishwasher.
