Cascade Platinum Review + Instagram Contest!

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I have always been one of those people who basically washes their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. You know... you say you are going to rinse them off, but you end up scrubbing every piece of food off because you know your dishwasher will not get them clean otherwise. 

Up until recently I always blamed my dishwasher for this problem. I had no idea that the dishwasher detergent I used could be the culprit! 

When I received the chance to review Cascade Platinum Pacs, I was really excited!  Here are a few reasons why:

  • Triple action formula helps to prevent residue on dishes and film on the machine.
  • Scrubs away 24 hour stuck-on-food.
  • Has the grease fighting power of Dawn!

  • I have been using Cascade Platinum Pacs for a week now and I am completely impressed! I loaded my dishwasher without rinsing my dishes {gasp!!} and they actually came out spotless! I could not believe it! 

    Cascade has partnered with Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons.  Check out this video where Gail gives you some tips on how to load your dishwasher:

    As I mentioned above, I have been using the Cascade Platinum Pacs for a week now. I absolutely love them! They work amazingly. They do not leave any stuck on food on my dishes and there is no gross residue either. I also love the great smell of the pacs as well. I would highly recommend Cascade Platinum Pacs to anyone and everyone. I will definitely be purchasing these pacs in the future and I think that if you try them just once, you would want to use them again as well.
