Washing Dishes Twice? Not Anymore! #MyPlatinum #sponsored

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.

Washing dishes is one of those chores that never ends.  Load, unload, load, unload – repeat.

To be honest, some days I’m just plain burnt out on the dishwasher loading then unloading then loading again cycle that never ends.  Those days that I say I’ll get to this later?  This is what happens:

dirty dishes dishwasher

In all fairness, my kitchen doesn’t always look like this, but there are definitely days that this is the norm.  Every time it happens I groan thinking how much easier it would have been if I’d just washed the dishes when the “crud” was fresh and hadn’t had a chance to get its grimy little paws super glued onto my dishes.   Sigh…

The worst though?

When I actually stay on top of my dirty dishes, open the dishwasher expecting to find clean dishes, and instead I find undissolved dishwashing powder, crud still stuck on the dishes, or other indicators that my dishes aren’t clean.

I did my part.  I expect ole’ Bessy (my dishwasher) to do hers.  But then again she can only do as good a job as the cleaner I put into her.

Cascade Platinum Pacs

That’s what led me to apply for this campaign with Cascade Platinum Pacs – keeping Ole’ Bessy and me from groaning about having to do dishes more than once.

Some of the Cascade Platinum Pacs talking points definitely got my attention:

  • Powers away 24-hour stuck on food.
  • NO need to pre-wash dishes.
  • Cleans the dishwasher and gets rid of hard water film build up.
  • Shiny, sparkling dishes.

I tested the pacs out and they delivered!  They also have the most AMAZING scent.  I love it!

I absolutely love the Cascade Platinum Pacs.
