Now that Mr. S is on summer vacation there are more dishes every day, which means we’ve gone from running the dishwasher once a day to twice a day. This of course means we’re going through a lot of dishwasher detergent, so when I was given the opportunity to try the new Cascade Platinum Pacs I jumped at the chance. We typically use Cascade powder since it appeals to our frugal side, but I’ve used Cascade Pacs in the past. Plus, now that we have an inquisitive toddler who likes to “help” I worry about him getting the powder in his mouth if I don’t close the lid fast enough. Yes, he’s that fast.
Having to load the dishwasher so frequently has even led to debates in our house on how to load the dishwasher for optimal space and who does it better. I really didn’t think loading a dishwasher was that serious, but there is apparently an art to using a dishwasher. Don’t believe me… check out this Youtube video of Jon Powell from Cascade’s Research and Development team explaining the details.
Anyway, I know you guys wanna hear the facts so here goes:
Cascade Platinum Pacs features a new triple action recipe that is designed to leave dishware spot-free and prevent the build up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls.
- 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
Cascade understands that many of us are now photographing our meals and posting them on social media. They’ve partnered with Top Chef judge, Gail Simmons in an effort to show that presentation is just as important as how your food tastes. This means sparkling clean plates and Cascade Platinum Pacs helps you achieve that sparkle.
We’ve been using our Platinum Pacs for about a week now and I’ve already noticed that the dishes are shiny with less spots. As I mentioned before we run the dishwasher more frequently now and to cut down on the use sometimes we over stuff the dishwasher. Prior to this week, I found myself frequently washing some of the silverware by hand because they weren’t clean enough. Out of a week’s use, I’ve only had to do this once, which is a major improvement. I’m definitely pleased with our experience and will be purchasing more once our samples are finished.
