Cascade Platinum Prize pack

I told y'all about Cascade Platinum before and I'm back to tell you about it again. I have been using the Cascade Platinum duo in my dishwasher for about a month now and I have to say it really makes a huge difference. Before I would pull out a lot of dishes that were not clean (even with prewashing) so it came to a point where the dishwasher wasn't being used. I mean what is the point? If they are not clean why not just wash them by hand right? So I gave this a try and I've been using my dishwasher ever since.

I mentioned this last post and I will mention it again because I didn't know.. Most dishwashers have a garbage disposal in them so you do not HAVE to prewash. If you really want to freak people out invite a few friends to your house and load the dishwasher with out prewashing. Most people are so confused and their reaction is quite funny.

And here are a few other fun facts In 1953, Cascade entered the automatic dishwashing market with the claims of "spotless dishes" to the four percent of households with dishwashers. Fast forward 50 years Cascade more than 60% of households have dishwashers and Cascade continues to grow, striving for immaculate dishes every time with its brilliant automatic dishwashing powders, gels, pacs and additives.

Just in case you missed these amazing tips  I wanted to share them again: 

Now some useful tips for dishwashing success:

  1. Stack em high or low just make sure bulky items don't block the sprayer
  2. Place all of the tall dishes & pans in the back of the bottom rack so they don't block the detergent chamber 
  3. Check your bottom and make sure to place glasses and other fragile items in the top rack this keeps them away from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack. 
  4. keep glasses looking great by setting them between the tines on the rack, not over them. Wet contact points can cause spots. 
  5. Treading longer utensils through coffee mug handles keep them secure in the wash. 

Ok so Cascade wants ya'll to tell them what you think of Cascade Platinum and what you are doing with all the free time from not prewashing..

This was a sponsored post that was sponsored by Double Duty Divas but the opinion expressed is all mine. I only recommend products I feel are good for my readers.


  1. I think anything baked on is very hard to remove in the dishwasher. My husband swears by Cascade. I have attempted to buy cheaper brands, but my husband says you must use twice as much to equal Cascade! Charlotte

    the hardest food to remove from dishes is egg for me. we cook eggs in mugs in the microwave and it get sooo hardened on! i soak and soak to try to soften it

  3. The hardest food to remove is stuck on cheese! When I make Nachos it is almost impossible to get the stuck on cheese off the plate!

  4. I think it depends on how something was cooked for sure. But I have always had a difficult time with things like noodles, sauces, and cheese products that get stuck. I usually have to soak in hot soapy water for at least an hour before I can touch it with a sponge!

  5. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. I always end up washing the pans by hand.

  7. I think fruit cobblers, crisps,and pies are difficult to clean The fruit gets very sticky.

  8. for me, it would be baked on or burnt on cheese and tomato sauce products-I love to make tex-mex casseroles and lasagna, but cleaning up afterwards is a big hassle!

  9. Stuck on macaroni and cheese baked in a casserole dish.

  10. I make tons of cheesy casseroles and I believe the toughest most aggravating part is the CHEESE! It never wants to completely come off lol.

  11. I would have to say that when I make casseroles cleaning up is more difficult

  12. Some of the most challenging foods to remove from dishes- would include dried fresh egg, hardened monkey bread goo and surprisingly dried cereal crummies along the edge of a bowl.

  13. Anything involving spaghetti sauce is pretty hard to get off.

  14. The hardest food to get removed has to be anything with melted cheese! It is always such a mess!

  15. It seems to me that I have the hardest time cleaning casserole pans, no matter what's been cooked in them. There's always burnt-on food around the edges that can be really stubborn.

  16. Of course anything burnt or sticky becomes challenging.. Timing is everything. If you're able to rinse the dishes before things set it seems to be better i getting even difficult/stubborn items rinsed off . J Rene Chartier

  17. Dried eggs and spaghetti sauce seem to be the hardest to remove. I hate when you have to soak these first.
