And then I did the dishes- Cascade Platinum Sponsored Review

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.

We've been having some issues lately with our dishwasher. As in I'll put the same cup through it three times and it will still have crud on it. Yes, I know, I could just wash that one gross cup by hand... but that would defeat the purpose of having a dishwasher. Am I right? 

So I was excited when I was contacted by Mom Central to do a review of the Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Packs. I knew we needed to try something else to get our dishes washed, but I didn't want to buy a bunch of different things and have them not work. 

The Cascade Platinum packs were really easy to use. No need to pour powder or measure anything. You just plop one pack into the soap dispenser thingy and start the machine. That alone sold me on them. The second part that sold me on them was when I totally overloaded the machine and all the dishes still came out clean. Not just some of it was clean, all of it. Even the nasty cups that had already been washed with my usual detergent and come out gross.  

Cascade Platinum is also supposed to help keep your dishwasher clean and prevent hard water stain build ups. We don't have hard water, but I did notice that the dishwasher smelled better than it had previously. 

Gail Simmons (judge on Top Chef) has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as the preparation of your food. Gail recommends impressing with Platinum Presentation; “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations.  Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”

Now that you know about my experience with Cascade Platinum, here's your opportunity to get involved. Cascade is hosting a #MyPlatinum Instagram contest where you can win awesome prizes such as a years worth of Cascade or a Whirlpool Dishwasher. The contest runs for 4 weeks, and each week there is a theme. There are weekly winners and a grand prize winner who gets a KitchenAid Kitchen Makeover. To win you just have to register and upload a picture with the hashtag #MyPlatinum and tag @Cascade in it.
