As women we work practically 16 hours a day! Between my regular full-time job, being a blogger and being the CEO of my household there is very little time for a do-over especially when it comes to chores. So when I’m doing chores I need to make sure I’m using the best products for my monies worth. For my dishwasher I have used store brands (as clumpy, soggy no-no) and various brand name dishwasher detergent. The difference between brands is clear, crystal clear!
Cascade Platinum has become my choice for dishwasher detergent. Why? Because Cascade Platinum works best when food soil is left on dishes. Say WHAT?!? Yes, Cascade Platinum works best with leftover food soil because its special enzymes latch onto that food, breaking it down so it can wash away.
Between leaving my FT job, volleyball games, ball park duty and more, pre-wash is a thing of the past for me. Instead, I can toss the large bits of food into the trash or garbage disposal and that’s it. No running dishes under the water first, just load my dishes into the dishwasher and walk away. Time is Money.
Since Cascade Platinum delivers ultimate clean results, I was asked to host a #CascadeShiningReviews party at my house. At my party not only were we able to have some of our favorite comfort foods but I left my dishes so my guest can see how powerful Cascade Platinum detergent and rinse aid really is. The hardest part of this get together is leaving dirty dishes for my guest to see. Luckily I had family over so they knew I don’t regularly have a sink full of dishes in my kitchen 24/7!
Our menu included home-style items like Mac n’ Cheese (courtesy of The Pioneer Woman), a brownie experiment and some very hungry guests. If your an avid home chef, you know that baked starches and proteins on baking dishes requires deep cleaning. The goal at my party is to demonstrate how Cascade Platinum can perform on heavily soiled dishes without pre-washing will still leave my dishes immaculately clean every single time.
This is where I come clean. Truth: I am a huge fan of aluminum foil baking pans, roasters etc. I know they are wasteful and bad for the environment but like I mentioned before time is money. If I can save time, it is worth the money in my book. But since my family is trying to cut back this fall (only 17 more Fridays until Christmas), switching back over to my baking dishes is a more economical choice.
Notice my sink full of dishes. I am going to put these dishes straight into the dishwasher and not start the cycle until my guests come over. Then I can illustrate the power Cascade Platinum and immaculately clean dishes each and every time despite food stuck on dishes for 24 hour straight.
Mac n’ Cheese, brownies and clean dishes. Loading the dishwasher is as easy as pie. Now my 10 year old can help with the dishes and we can skip the pre-wash system we had previously. Try it for yourself and use the hashtag: #CascadeShiningReviews on twitter to share your experience. Even better, take a picture before and after you have used Cascade Platinum without pre-washing your dishes. We want to see your immaculately clean dishes!
