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.
Summer is here which means one thing… summer parties!! Yes, I love entertaining and hosting summer shindigs at my home. One of the biggest elements of any party is the food and the presentation. I always want to make sure my serving platters are the cleanest they can be, as well as my bake ware and other dishes I use to cook and serve food to my guests! This is exactly why I was excited to test out the new Cascade Platinum Pacs.
Cascade Platinum aims to achieve the most powerful clean to your dishes as well as keep your dishwasher sparkling. These pacs can scrub away tough 24 hour stuck o food, and helps eliminate the need for pre-wash. Now I admit, I’m a pre-washer. I totally wash my dishes before sticking them in the dishwasher. I was nervous to put dirty dishes in my washer, but I knew it the was only way to really test out these Pacs! Helping Cascade achieve this powerful dishware shine is the grease fighting power of Dawn! That’s right… Dawn is included in each little pac to give the cleaning power even more of a boost.
The pacs are super easy to use. Simply place the pac in your dishwasher and run it. Like I said above, no pre-washing is required. I tested the pacs out on my pots, pans, bake ware, cookie sheets, and our every day dishes. I admit, I was nervous that it might not get the job done, but wow was I wrong!
When I pulled items out of the washer, I was super happy to see that there wasn’t any food left behind, nor were there are watermarks on the glassware. The watermark issue I’ve had with other brands of dish washing liquid in the past. My ceramic serving ware was perfectly clean, even though I had place it in the dishwasher with bits of food from the previous casserole on it. Major plus!
Not only did Cascade Platinum clean my dishes, but the inside of my dishwasher was clean as well! When I loaded my washer with dirty dishes, bits of food, liquids, and sauce were dripping into my washer. Boy was I cringing! Again, this is a reason why I normally take the time to pre-wash. So glad the pacs cleaned my dishwasher too. As a busy mom, it is nice to know I have one less task to do each day. No more pre-washing for this momma has long as I have Cascade Platinum!
