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.
Those dreaded words any mother would like to turn a def ear to…especially me! In fact, as a young adult I would always look for ways to get out of any type of washing dishes chores…especially since we didn’t have a dishwasher growing up! Oh yes. Made a daunting task a little more stressful!
So being blessed with a dishwasher now, it’s no wonder I want to make sure every single plate, glass and silverware is spotless when the machine beeps “CLEAN” (do I really want to spend more time washing them by hand afterwards?? N-O).
That’s where Cascade’s new product, Cascade Platinum comes to the rescue: it’s one of Cascade’s most powerful cleaning products that fights grease and grime, while at the same time maintaining the sparkling look of your machine’s interior! Pretty cool.
I’ve always been a fan of Cascade, I mean, it’s one of the most recognized dish washing brands out there. But truth be told, the regular detergent didn’t always leave my glasses and silverware spotless…so I was particularly eager to try out the premium line.
I’ve been using the newest Cascade pacs for about a week now and can see improvements in my dishes already! Not only are the glasses sparkling clean, but I’ve also noticed that those icky food particles that are always present between fork prongs are gone! It thrills me to know that I don’t even have to use extra “gel” in the pre-wash area…because those little pacs work extra hard to fight dirt.
A few awesome FACTS to note about the new line:
- Delivers Cascade’s ultimate clean for dishes
- Scrubs away tough 24 hour stuck-on food
- Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
- Provides exceptional dishware shine
- Contains the Grease Fighting Power of Dawn
In today’s world where people are snapping photos of their favorite foods left and right, I’m so glad Cascade Platinum can help make those dishes look extra scrumptious. In fact, Gail Simmons, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation:
“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.” – Gail Simmons
