Cascade Platinum Shines in Performance

Disclosure:  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.

Do you love washing dishes?  If you are like me, then the answer is no.  I don't really like pre-rinsing or even worse double-washing if my dishes do not come out clean the first time, who has time for that?  For the last week I have been using Cascade Platinum Pacs and I am super impressed.  Not only has it become super convenient to just pop one of the Cascade Platinum Pacs in my dishwasher (no mess, no measurements, no fuss) but my dishes have never looked cleaner.  My glass is actually sparkling.  I had forgotten that it was suppose to sparkle.  I guess my previous dishwashing product was not holding up and it took Cascade Platinum to show me that!  Let me show you a few examples.

 What Cascade Platinum Pacs look like.

 A very dirty pot - yep, spaghetti night!

 Not a drop of sauce!

 Remember my breakfast smoothie?  I left the remains in my cup for a few days and put Cascade Platinum to the test.  I did not pre-rinse at all but instead put this glass straight into my dishwasher.

How about that glass?  Amazing, right?  I was beyond impressed.

My days of pre-rinsing are over.  I am handing that job over to Cascade Platinum for all my future loads.  Cascade Platinum Pacs worked on my glass, non-glass, pots, crock pot, you name it.  These Pacs cleaned both the inside and outside of my dishes and that is important.  If you haven't tried this product yet I would highly recommend it!

WOW! I haven't used cascade in awhile since I find it to be on the more expensive side, but wow it looks like it is worth the price!

I don't have a dishwasher and I am so tired of playing that role... I would love to use Cascade (other than on my white laundry!)

Cascade rocks, and these are pretty (odd to say, but I think they are). :)

I am amazed by how clear the glass items came out--spotless, too.
