Growing up, I was the one who had dish-duty every single day. I’m the oldest of four girls so it was one of the many chores I needed to do on a daily basis. We lived in an apartment all my childhood life so washing dishes by hand was the norm for me. That is until my husband and I bought our first house in 2001.
Our new house did not have a dishwasher but thankfully my husband, who is a jack of all trades, installed a brand new, shiny stainless steel dishwasher for me. At first, it was an odd appliance to use. I was so used to washing dishes by hand that I was a bit apprehensive about using this foreign object. After some tips from a close friend, who uses her dishwasher every day, I got the hang of it.
Cascade is the #1 Recommended Brand in North America!*
After using my dishwasher for over 10 years, I’ve come to know which brands to stay away from and which brands to continue buying. And the brand I usually go back to buying has always been Cascade.
Thanks to Mom Central, I had the opportunity to try out the New Cascade Platinum Pacs.
The Cascade Platinum Pacs are very simple to use. They’re pre-measured (which is awesome!) in a cute little package and all you have to do is drop it in your dishwasher, close the door and press start. There’s no need to pre-rinse the dishes. Those little pacs have got you covered! After the cycle is done, you’ll have a sparkling clean dishwasher and virtually spotless dishes. I couldn’t believe the forks that were filled with dried egg yolk from breakfast had come off. You have to try it for yourself.
About Cascade Platinum Technology:
Cascade Platinum features a premium, advanced triple-action formula specially designed to deliver Cascade’s best-in-market performance:

Trust me, after using Cascade Platinum Pacs, you will not go back to using your usual brand. Cascade Platinum Pac left my dishes so clean and spotless; I can’t wait to photograph my next meal on Instagram!
