I do not like to do dishes, the only reason I do it is I like dirty dishes even less! I want to get it done as quickly as possible with the least amount of work and hassle. Now, mix in the fact that I have a teenage boy that eats constantly (and I really mean constantly) yet leaves his dirty dishes all over the place and I really, really don't like doing dishes! I own a dishwasher but it makes me crazy to have to pre-wash dishes before I put them in the dishwasher. Isn't that what a dishwasher is for.... to wash dishes?
I had the opportunity to try a new product from Cascade calling Cascade Platinum Pacs. I'm a fan of Cascade, I personally think it works the best. Well, now they've improved it. Cascade Platinum eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes, scrubs away 24 hour stuck on food, and really shines your dishware. If that's not enough, Cascade Platinum also prevents hard water buildup in your dishwasher so your dishwasher can sparkle along with your dishes!
So, does it work? Why, yes it does! First, I love that they are little pacs that I can just toss in my dishwasher soap dispenser, no muss, no fuss! I've used it several times and my dishes come out looking cleaner! My glasses don't look spotty! I even gave it the ultimate test... dirty dishes I found in my son's room that had been there for who knows how long. Yuck! Cascade Platinum actually got all that nasty stuck on mystery food! I even noticed that my dishwasher is looking cleaner! Woot! I'm a fan!! Big thumbs up from me! Now my dishes can act as a showcase for the great food I cook!
Speaking of food presentation, Cascade has teamed up with Gail Simmons, who is a Top Chef judge and editor of Food + Wine magazine to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation! You can check out some great info from Gail Simmons on the Cascade Facebook page!
Now for even more fun, Cascade is have a "My Platinum" contest on Instagram with great prizes! Each week two winners will each win a new KitchenAid dishwasher and a 6 month supply of Cascade! There is also a grand prize of a Platinum Kitchen Makeover! Wow!

Cascade, I'm a fan!
