Lets Get Clean Dishes with Cascade #MyPlatinum! #Sponsored

“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 know that most of us don't really love doing chores, but I hate them. One chore that I seem to do on a daily basis is unload the dishwasher. I'm not joking, we literally run our dish washer every day or if I'm lucky, every other day. I honestly have no idea how a family of two adults and one toddler can go through so many dishes in a day, and I hand wash a lot too! Right now we are renters and the appliances in the house we are renting have been here probably since the house was built, however many years ago. The dishwasher still works and has a lot of life left in it, but it really isn't the best dishwasher that I have ever encountered. One issue I have is that I have to make sure that I pre-rinse my dishes, actually scratch that, I practically have to wash my dishes prior to putting them in the dishwasher in order to ensure that my dishes are sparkling when I take them out. For as long as I can remember, we've always used Cascade, whether it be liquid or powder soap, the Cascade brand has always done well for us. For about two months Mr. Hunky and I actually decided to stop using store bought dishwasher detergent and start making our own, but we quickly changed our minds again and decided to go back to store bought, and started purchasing Cascade again. Growing accustomed to my ritual of emptying the dishwasher only to put dishes back in that didn't get fully cleaned, I jumped on the opportunity to apply for a Cascade Campaign through Mom Central Consulting and I was ecstatic when I was accepted as a blogger. I was promptly sent a sample of the Cascade Platinum  dishwasher detergent and couldn't wait to try it out. 

Cascade Platinum achieves a clean so powerful it helps keep the dishwasher sparkling while delivering a variety of dish care benefits. 

The Cascade Platinum differs from the traditional Cascade soap that I was using before because the Platinum comes in detergent pods (called Pacs) that you simply place into your dishwashers dispenser and let it do the rest! According to Cascade, "the Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade while simultaneously helping to maintain the sparkling look of your clean dishwasher interiour. The Cascade Platinum Pacs feature an advanced triple action recipe that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent the build up of hard water film on dishwasher walls." In addition, the Cascade Platinum Pacs power away tough 24 hour stuck on food, eliminate the need to prewash your dishes, help maintain the look of new machines, contain the grease fighting power of Dawn, and deliver an exceptional dishware shine.

Even my dishwasher recommends Cascade over any other brand!

When my dishes were finished I couldn't believe how clean they were! For the first time in months, there wasn't a single dish that didn't need to be put back in for a second wash! I had a mommy moment and it didn't occur to me to take a before and after shot, but let me assure you that the dishes were literally sparkling. 

Cascade is even endorsed by Top Chef judge and editor of Food + Wine magazine, Gail Simmons! Gail understands that a full meal is not only a great-tasting recipe, but perfect presentation, and a perfect  presentation includes sparkling dishes, shining utensils, and spot free glasses! “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
