Make your dishwasher work for you with platinum cascade

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 have been using Cascade since I starting using a dishwasher.  I did not know how spoiled I had been by Cascade until one day when my hubby brought home the generic brand.  When I went to unload the dishwasher I though to myself was this run?  There were so many pieces of food on the dishes.  What is the point of spending less on dish washing liquid, if you have to use twice as much?  That was all it took for my hubby to say, "we will only buy Cascade from now on".  The next day he came home with  a bottle of Cascade. We have tried Cascade liquid and Cascade pacs.  I prefer the pacs because they are so easy my kids can put them in without making a mess.   It's a great way for my 2 year old to help with the household chores!

This weekend I went out of town leaving my hubby home with kids and a Cascade Platinum Pacs.  I figured if I was going to leave him home alone with three kids I had to do all I could to make his life easier.     

Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade while simultaneously helping to maintain the sparkling look of your clean dishwasher interior.

Cascade Platinum Pacs feature an advanced triple action recipe that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls.
