Finish Quantum Power and Pure with Active Oxygen.

I think just about all mums say that they are Time Poor. I certainly don't have to explain myself here. So, on the occasion where there's lots of glass and porcelain things to be washed I like to dump it all in the dishwasher. I've tried the cheap brands and expensive brands of washing tablets and powders. Since my dishwasher is very cheap, ahem, sensitive (it's a Cona brand or something hubby picked up with his dad a long, long, time ago) it doesn't do a good job unless I use a quality dishwashing detergent. Seriously. I am not kidding. It doesn't dry my dishes and it can leave even dirty dishes (I just can't go back to the Aldi powder anymore. Sad memories). I don't even think about how much chemicals are being used to wash my dishes. Do you?

That is until Woolworths had this amazing half price sale on all the Finish dishwasher tablets! Aaaahhh-le-lu- ya!!! I popped in one Finish Quantum tablet one day and everything came out sparkling and clean. Since then I have been using my dishwasher more often. I've tried their Gel version and it works but not as great as the original Quantum version in my washer (again, sensitive washer).

Now, Corrie at Retromummy, is recently testing out their new and less chemically made version : Finish Quantum Power and Pure with Active Oxygen! I couldn't say no to test it out myself. It's a healthier alternative to the normal stuff as it doesn't have heaps of nasty chemicals in it. Who doesn't want that for their family? I've been also starting to use less of my Teflon fry pans and use stainless steel instead.

She was really quick at sending me my tester pack too and I tried it out last night. Yes. I know. I am the world's WORST dishwasher packer-upper-er....  Since my washer is cheap, it also has no instructions on how to pack dishes for washing and I will never figure out how to set my bowls! It's also low so  my medium cutting boards only fit on the sides. So, there's the Finish tablet sitting in the dispenser (top pic) and my stuff inside. I put the plastic stuff that seems to be dishwasher safe on the top rack.

I must say after a Normal wash setting, Finish Power and Pure is AWESOME!!! Everything came out clean and shiny and spotless. I was very impressed. See below: the cutlery is shiny and the plate is spotless.

Even my baked on Pyrex dish came out clean. I had made chicken schnitzel and there were black crusty bits on the side. I put it in as it was and was so happy to see it so clean and streak free. 

One other indicator for me is how clean my dishwasher door ends up. No leftover tablet in the dispenser (yay-eee) Also, to save energy and carbon emissions I do turn my washer off on the dry part of the cycle after the dishes are clean and pull out the racks so they dry naturally. Seeing as my washer is in another kitchen (that's another story) it's not in the way of the kids or myself so I can do that.

So, now that you know, you better get these new chemical-less tablets. They are really great and a healthier alternative for you and your family. If they got hubby to do the dishes that would be heaven on earth.


  1. Just wanted to let you know that there are safer alternative cleaning products - no bleach, no fillers, NO NASTY chemicals. Choose no nasty chemicals - Melaleuca products are superior ,

Invisible zipper foot - Birch

I thought I might shed some light on the invisible zipper foot. I bought a Birch model from Spotlight and it came in a little plastic bag with four blue shanks and a rolling foot.

First I removed the standard foot from my Janome sewing machine (Sewist 521). I realised I still needed to remove the shank, which is the part that is screwed on, and holds the interchangeable feet. So with one hand holding the screwdriver and one hand holding my daughter, who just had to watch, it popped out disappeared somewhere. NO! I was about to kick myself but luckily I found it in the basket underneath my table. Phew.

The Birch invisible zipper foot comes with one shank already in place so you know how it's suppose to fit. You have to select the correct shank that fits your machine and slide it onto the foot piece.

I just tried each blue part on my machine and made sure it was wide enough to cover the metal leg bit and that I could fit the screw in it's side. Once you find the correct shank slide…

The cutest labels - Hippo Blue

This is my youngest daughter Jacquie. Jacquie is 3, turning 4 very soon and goes to day care once a week. She also has speech therapy once a week and bad mummy packs her food in plastic bags and old lunch boxes and scribbles her name on paper labels. 
Jacquie is very happy today because she's sporting a brand new lunch box which has her name imprinted on it and it was made by Hippo Blue. Jacquie is in dire need of special name labels and that is where Hippo Blue saved my day and made everything look pretty. Hippo Blue made up a batch of their Vinyl Label Variety pack and I could not be more pleased. I've had other labels before and these ones are quite impressive. Why? well because there's a lot more variety. I like how there are different sizes so I can plaster her name on all her pieces she needs for day care and school.
Did you see those cute footprint stickers? They're shoe stickers. How cool! We also recieved round dots and new square ones which I've never se…

Laser Eye Surgery

< feeling sleepy Blogger doesn't like any of my camera pictures at the moment so I can't show you the pictures taken while I was having my eye's lasered. Here are the pics that Blogger decided it would upload of my eye surgery. I finally decided not to wait any longer and after I saw an advertisement at the local medical centre for the Sebban Eye Centre I decided to see if I was a suitable candidate for laser eye surgery. The check only takes 30mins and boy was I glad to hear that I was! I booked an appointment the very next day but I had to still wait 6weeks.
< during the laser!
A week has passed now and I still have slightly blurry vision since having TransPRK or Advanced Surface Laser. Sometimes when I use the saline drops I have clear vision even from the kitchen to the lounge which is fantastic. I just wish it would hurry up so I can get on with things. I have to have IE at 125% otherwise I find it hard to read and I haven't been on the net for a few days now…
