I know that there are plenty of people that don't have dishwashers in their homes, but I have to admit, that concept is prehistoric to me. I remember years and years of washing dishes by hand when I was growing up, so that, combined with my lack of time in our everyday lives, is why my obsession has grown and flourished over the years.
What a great set of cutting boards! Can they go in the dishwasher? No? Nope, not buying them.
Therefore, considering that just about anything and everything that we own goes into our machine, I find that I have fairly high standards when it comes to the results that it provides. Who wants to load in a set of plates only to have them come out with dried food still on them? Glasses with streaks? Pre-rinsing or scrubbing afterward? No, thanks.
Which is why from the very first time that I saw a television advertisement for Cascade Platinum, I knew that I would have to try it to see if it could be a part of my dishwasher love-fest.
Featuring an advanced triple action formula that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent the build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls, Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade.
In fact, Cascade Platinum's superior technology achieves a clean so powerful it eliminates the need to pre-wash or pre-rinse dishes while helping to keep your dishwasher sparkling — its enzymes break down even 24-hour stuck-on food for Cascade's best clean and shine.
But wait, there's more. The way that these magic pacs power away tough, dried food actually means that the special enzymes need leftover food particles to latch onto to break them down to wash them away. With no food particles on the dishes, the enzymes can't do their job as well and this can lead to dish issues... which explains why a new survey from Cascade Platinum and Marie Claire reveals that nearly all people are doing their dishes incorrectly!
Key findings from the survey include:
- 96% of respondents waste up to an hour pre-washing their dishes each week.
- 89% of respondents did not know that most dishwashers feature a garbage disposal, which safely disposes of any remaining food soil on the dishes.
- Nearly half (46%) of survey respondents believe that skipping the pre-wash will lead to dirtier dishes. When in reality, breaking this habit along with using Cascade Platinum, will help them achieve the ultimate clean and sparkle every time.
Around here, I love being able to reach right into my bag of Platinum Pacs...
...and know that I simply have to pop one into my beloved dishwasher for sparkling dishes, shining flatware and spot-free glasses every time (hint: it's totally not worth it trying out other brands or generics, they just don't compare).
There hasn't been one instance where I've pulled open my dishwasher and found anything dried, crusty, crumbly or sticky at all — and I appreciate that the premium formula leaves my dishwasher itself looking shiny clean, too!
If you're not using Cascade Platinum yet, what are you waiting for? As well as the cleaning power and performance that you'll gain, you'll also get to add up the extra minutes that you used to spend pre-washing your dishes!
