I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a Cascade Platinum sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank me for participating. All opinions are my own.

New Dish Washer Installation

Cascade Platinum Dish Washer Detergent

How to Make Your Dish Washer Detergent Work Better

Well, the new dishwasher is here and I’m mostly in love (read about my terrible luck with dishwashers here). First, I love that it came with a sample of Cascade Dish washing soap – that tells me the manufacturer recommends it and since we’ve had the worst luck with dishwashers lasting more than 5 years, I’m happy to know that the soap I’ll be using is OK. Second, I love the looks of the outside, but silly me, dark gray is not a good color on the inside for low-sighted people like me!

Still, now I can really give Cascade Platinum a try out with a new machine.  I love that the Cascade Platinum packs are all-in-one; pre-measured and ready to go. Just drop them in the detergent spot, close it up, and clean!  So far everything has been great and our dishes look fabulous. Granted we’ve only done two loads since the new dishwasher was installed. We’ll see how they both hold up over the next few weeks.

You’d think this is second nature, but you’d be surprised you may be doing it wrong! Check out how dishwashing detergent works and what you need to do to make sure you’re helping it work to its full potential.

Gail Simmons Partners with Cascade

Also, did you know that Gail Simmons, one of my favorite foodies and Top Chef Judges (she’s also the editor of Food+Wine magazine), has partnered with Cascade? She’ll be sharing why she thinks food presentation is as important as preparation – look good, taste good!

We usually see Gail critiquing other’s cooking – here’s a fun video where she’s wearing the apron!
