*Disclaimer* This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.
I have three kids and the last thing I want to worry about is rewashing dishes. I tend to just throw the dishes in the dishwasher and hope for the best. Although when I put steak knives in there my husband throws a fit…he’s lucky they are even getting clean these days!
Miss C is my little helper in the kitchen. I just ask and she knows what to do with the Cascade. She’s very excited to pass out the goodies for our guests.
Did you know that pre-washing actually hinders the dishwashers ability to wash dishes? I had no clue. Cascade Platinum is specifically designed to work best when food is left ON dishes. The enzymes in Cascade Platinum are designed to attach themselves to food particles, breaking them down so that they can be easily washed away. No food means the enzymes have nothing to latch on to.
Need to add valuable minutes to your life? Cascade thinks you do so they teamed up with Marie Claire to debunk dishwasher myths:
Nearly EVERYONE surveyed (96%) spends up to an hour pre-washing their dishes each week. But three-quarters of this group (74%) are still experiencing daily dishwasher fails with dishes that come out looking dirty, spotted, or streaked. And then, half of them (51%) are re-washing the dishes that didn’t get clean the first time. We’ve all had that happen!
Almost half (46%) of survey respondents believe that skipping the pre-wash means their dishes will come out gross. When in reality, they can break this habit and SKIP THE PRE-WASH.
We know that people pre-wash their dishes for many different reasons. Some do it because they think any leftover food will clog their pipes or such. This is understandable when you consider that almost no one (a mere 11% of survey respondents) knows that most dishwashers come equipped with a garbage disposal.
What kids don’t like brownies? Here’s my nephew holding up the clean brownie pan after the party. If you want honesty and to if a product works like it’s suppose to, let kids test it or be at the demonstration. They see EVERYTHING and don’t mince words. Hunter was very observant and excited to see if the Cascade Platinum worked. “Whoa. I didn’t think that would happen.” His words.
Some more fun facts about washing your dishes:
Two-thirds (65%) of survey respondents organize their dishwashers just like their closets – with everything stacked in its rightful spot. In fact, almost half (42%) have actually gone so far as to re-load the dishwasher after their family goes to bed because they didn’t think their family member(s) did it right the first time! Half of survey respondents (50%) stall when dishes need to be done. Now that’s just silly. Just drop in the Cascade Platinum, hit “start” and be on your way! I have no clue what they are talking about! I’m lucky if all the dishes even get to their rightful spot!
The majority of survey respondents (57%) cringe at the thought of hosting a party because of spotted wine glasses. And almost half (46%) would rather go out to eat because they hate cleaning the dishes. It’s your RIGHT to entertain, folks. Fight for it!
