Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Detergent Review and #MyPlatinum Instagram Contest Information! #sponsored

Friday, June 7, 2013
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.

To say we have a housefull is an understatement, at times, I don't know who is going to be here or who is coming or going.  We also often have unexpected guests or the kids friends over.  We are definitely a welcoming household.  The more the merrier, but, that also means more dishes.  The littlest ones often want a princess glass this time, and a Dora glass the next, so, to make everyone happy, we accumulate a lot of dirty dishes.  Nevertheless, I depend heavily on my dishwasher in my kitchen to make cleanup and dishes easier.

I love the ease and convenience of a dishwasher, I also get somewhat bent out of shape when it is not loaded properly, since of course, proper loading helps with the cleaning process. I know, I am grateful that the kids help, but, if it is not loaded properly, dishes don't get clean.  Another great way to have clean, sparkling dishes is to use the correct detergent.  I have been using Cascade for quite a few years now and have been very happy with the results.  My dishes come out sparkling clean and quite simply I don't have to worry about grime or food still left on the plates or dishes after being through a dish washing cycle.

I started using Cascade a few years ago, when I switched from another brand I had been using.  I noticed that I often got some swelling on my lips.  This went on for a while as I tried to figure out what was making it do that, since it was off and on.  I finally narrowed it down to the dishwashing detergent we were using and searched for others that didn't contain a certain ingredient.  Cascade lacked the ingredient that made my lips swell, and I have not had any problems since using Cascade.  I also got the great benefit of super clean dishes and peace of mind from no more allergy for me.

Cascade Platinum is so powerful, it even helps your dishwasher stay sparkling  Cascade Platinum is available in Fresh scent and Lemon burst scent.  I love that added benefit!  I also like the packs.  It is so convenient to put the pack in the dishwasher.  There is no measuring or under or over scooping loose powder detergent.  Cascade has done it for you in a perfect pouch!
