I’ve been using Cascade Platinum for a few weeks now. As I mentioned earlier, we happened to purchase a new dishwasher at the same time and I couldn’t help but smile that the manufacturer believes so much in Cascade that they recommend it right on the inside of the dishwasher and they provided a sample with the purchase. That makes me feel better about using it.
Since we have a new dishwasher it’s hard to know if our newly cleaned dishes are because of the change in detergent, the new dishwasher, or both. Whatever the reason, I’m just glad to find clean dishes after a cycle instead of the dried-on mess we’ve been experiencing for the last few months.
I do know that detergent counts because in the past our glasses have become cloudy. I didn’t know that it was the soap causing it. Some of my favorite Disney glasses were destined for the garbage can until they got their shine back after changing soap. Since then we haven’t had the cloudy problem so I wasn’t able to test the Cascade Platinum, but the fact that our clear glasses haven’t picked up the problem leads me to believe it’s an issue we’ll no longer have to face.
I also noticed all of our dishes are covered in what I thought were fork scratches. Now I think they may have been from the old dishwasher. I’ve purchased new dishes to replace them and those will only get washed in Cascade Platinum because I hope to keep them looking new. They’re white Fiestaware – my dream dinnerware because it’s made in the USA. Here’s hoping they stay new looking and fabulous! In the interim, our glasses look fabulous, even on the 1988 geese shelf liner (I really need to change that).
