Skipping the Pre-Wash with #CascadeShiningReviews + Giveaway

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 always pre-washed my dishes. I didn't know that you shouldn't. It was how I was taught. I was recently given the opportunity to have a little cooking party over at my house to share that Cascade not only provides superior clean for your dishes, but you don't have to pre-wash! I have a long lasting love for Cascade Platinum, so I felt up for the challenge!

 

So I decided to invite some family over for a taste of comfort foods, which included The Pioneer Woman's Mac N' Cheese. I have never made any of her recipes, although I love her blog and show. I also made some yummy Duncan Hines brownies (which I also received) that I was told to make the night before and leave the pan so my guests could see that Cascade Platinum delivers ultimate clean for dishes, even 24-hour stuck-on food!

The key to this party was to skip the pre-wash. Not many people know this, but most dishwashers actually have a garbage disposal unit built in and it works exactly like the disposal in your sink. Cascade Platinum actually works best when food soil is left on the dishes because it has these special enzymes that latch onto that food, breaking it down so it can wash away.
 
My mom and sister were very excited about getting some free Cascade Platinum products to test out for themselves! And I was excited to see my sister.

Things you need to remember to achieve immaculately clean dishes:
* Stack your dishes high and low but be sure that bulky items DO NOT block the sprayer.
* Place tall dishes and pans in the back of the bottom rack so they DO NOT block the detergent chamber.
* Place glasses and other fragile items in the top rack. This helps keep them from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack.
* Set glasses between tines on the rack NOT over them as wet contact points can cause spots.
* Thread any long utensils through coffee-mug handles to help keep them secure in the wash.
* Check to ensure that there aren't any stray utensils that will block the nozzle or sprayer.
 
Now it's your turn! Put Cascade Platinum to the test and head to the Cascade website to leave a short review of Cascade Platinum including #CascadeShiningReviews. One reviewer will win a Kitchen Aid Dishwasher!

Make sure to keep up with the #CascadeShiningReviews fun on Twitter and Facebook!
