I'm part of Mom Central Consulting and being a part of that great group of bloggers allows me the chance to review products and tell others about new things coming up. It also gives me some compensation for my time, even though the opinions are always my own.
I was recently given the chance to review Cascade© Platinum Pacs, and I was actually excited to do the dishes- well not quite excited. I was ready to put it to the test.
I hate having to rinse and "wash" my dishes before washing them in the dishwasher. I get scraping food off, but when I have to wipe ketchup or syrup off of dishes that should have been "clean" I get kind of frustrated.
Before I get into my review, let me share a bit about the Cascade© Platinum Pacs:
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.
•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
I was sold! We have hard water in my city, I usually have food that has been stuck on for 24 hours (when my dish hunt turns up all the ones I missed!), and like I said- I hate pre-washing the dishes.
Another thing I was excited to hear about was Cascade's partnership with Gail Simmons. If you check out instagram (or even my facebook posts) you know that people take pictures of their food. It's an experience, not just a meal, and when the dishes are dirty it kind of ruins the appeal.

As for my review, I was very impressed with the product! My dishes didn't have a film when I put them away, and I didn't have to rewash. I've used it all week (and while being at camp and various activities, there are times when the dishes don't get rinses or in the dishwasher right away).
I love that it also uses Dawn, because that is what I use for my dishes that can't be put in the dishwasher. I've tried other brands, but there's something about Dawn that makes my dishes FEEL cleaner, and I think that helps enhance Cascade Platinum.
As if Sparkling Dishes aren't exciting enough, Cascade is hosting a contest where you could win a Kitchenaid Kitchen Makeover just by taking part in their Photo contest and more information on their Instagram!
