Sparkle and Shine with Cascade Platinum #MyPlatinum #Sponsored

During the summer months it feels as if I am on overdrive. The last thing I need to worry about is dirty dishes – I mean that is why I have a dish washer, right? But what happens when your dishwasher can’t seem to get your dishes clean?

Disclosure: “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 spend a lot of time in the kitchen. I love cooking up something different for dinner and experimenting with tasty desserts. As you can imagine, between all that cooking and 4 children who are constantly eating something, we produce a lot of dirty dishes!

I think the dishwasher is broke!

Over the past month or so I’ve convinced myself we need a new dishwasher. With each load of dishes I put in, at least half need to be washed again due to spots and stuck on food. This is actually a sore spot in our home, as my husband and I often debate why I would even bother using the dishwasher since it does such a poor job.


Instead of rushing out to by a new dishwasher I was willing to give it one more chance using a new detergent, Cascade Platinum

#MyPlatinum

What makes Cascade Platinum different?

Cascade Platinum is a new premium product designed to deliver Cascade’s most
powerful clean while helping to maintain the sparkling look of dishwasher interiors. So basically you have a dish cleaner, rinse aid and dishwasher cleaner in one convenient pac.

Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver a variety of dish care benefits:

  • Powers away tough, 24 hour stuck-on food
  • Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
  • Helps maintain the look of new machines and helps prevent additional hard-water build-up
  •  Delivers exceptional dishware shine

Platinum Pacs by Cascade #MyPlatinum

I was pleasantly surprised at the difference something as simple as dish detergent could make. Not only do I find myself saving time (and money) by not having to wash my dishes twice, but felt good enough about dishes to share photos straight from the dishwasher to my table.... and to think I was truly ready to buy a whole new dishwasher!

In this age of social media we find ourselves sharing just about everything including dinner. Those of you who are frequent readers of mine know I adore sharing my latest recipes with you all, but it takes more than a yummy recipe to make you say "mmm." It's that great photo with the sparkling dishes, shining flatware, and spot-free glasses that give your culinary creation the mmm factor.

No room for spots in a close-up
With that in mind Top Chef judge and editor of Food + Wine magazine Gail Simmon has partnered with Cascade, to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation.

I'll be honest, I have never been really happy with Cascade and use Finish. But it sounds like maybe they have come out with a comparable product and since Cascade is usually less expensive I will most definitely be trying this!

I love Cascade! Ever since I saw the commercial with the woman who puts the entire pink cake in the dishwasher and the plate and dishwasher come out spotless, I tried it, and haven't used anything other than an occasional sample since. None compare to Cascade when it comes to getting all of the baked on, fried on, dried on food off of your dishes. I can't wait to try the Platinum pacs!

I've never used the Pacs before but the end result looks great! I've used the liquid Cascade for years now and love it.

We love cascade and has been in our family for many years. I haven't tried the platinum yet but if it is like the rest, it is wonderful!

I have the same problem you had with your dishes/dishwasher and have to wash some of them 3 times! what a waste of time and money. I'm gonna give these a try and see if they work for me. Thanks for the honest review.

We actually just tried these yesterday and they made a HUGE difference. We thought that our dishwasher was broken, but it turns out that we just weren't using the right product with it.

Those little pods are great. I never use liquid or powder anymore.

Now that all 3 kids are home for the summer, my dishwasher is constantly running. I'll have to keep an eye out for these and check the ads for sales.
