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 a lot of thoughts about washing dishes, especially since I generally make all of our meals from scratch. For a family of five, that adds up to a lot of dishes, and I'm running the dishwasher daily! Prior to living in our current house, I did a seven year stint with no dishwasher, and I particularly loathed the winter months when the pipes would freeze and dirty dishes would pile up in the sink. I sure am glad those days are past.
Over the next four weeks, I'm going to be blogging weekly about our dishwashing routine, as I've been selected in an Ambassador program for Cascade Platinum! I will also be sharing information about the "My Platinum" Instagram contest and Cascade's partnership with Top Chef Judge, Gail Simmons. Cascade has been a frequent product in our household, as I've bought the Cascade Complete Action Pacs in bulk for years. I've found them to perform well in our dishwasher, and I don't even tend to pre-rinse, as you can see below (yuck, lasagna buildup):
I have never tried Cascade Platinum though. In the coming weeks, I'll be putting Cascade Platinum to the test, and I'm eager to see how it will handle load after load of messy dishes. I'm especially interested to see how it handles our glassware - in the picture above you can see that the dishwasher is mostly loaded with plastic kiddie plates and lunch tupperwares. But we do have glassware and I want to see how clean my wineglasses and plates can be. Cascade Platinum is supposed to leave dishware spot-free and prevent buildup on dishwasher walls - all while providing the most powerful clean Cascade has to offer.
