Before & After 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.

Before I skipped the pre-rinse, I was wasting SO MUCH TIME! And now that I have included Cascade Platinum products into my kitchen clean-up routine, I have saved so time, money on my water bill, and my sanity.

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!

Housewife Bootcamp: My Least Favorite Household Chore

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

What's your least favorite household chore? Since I figured out my laundry situation, my least favorite chore is always going to be emptying the dish washer (and it's my husband's too). Thank goodness I have a dish washer though because although the picture below is a common occurrence in our household, I couldn't imagine if I actually had to clean them by hand.

With all of these dirty dishes, I despise when I have to wash most of them by hand after they have left the dish washer!
And then insert Cascade Platinum Pacs.

Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade while simultaneously helping to maintain the sparkling look of your clean dishwasher interior. They feature an advanced triple action recipe that is specially designed to leave dishware virtually spot-free and help prevent the build-up of hard-water film on dishwasher walls.

Presentation & Preparation

Now, more than ever, people eat with their eyes, and the evidence is all over sites like Facebook and Instagram. With that in mind, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation. She’s encouraging everyone to “keep their presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.” To do that, you’ll need to know the correct way to load a dishwasher as seen in the video below…
