Disclosure: 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. All opinions are 100% my own.
My husband and I don't regularly argue (I would probably argue more but hes such an easy-going guy there's really not that much to argue about) but we do debate about a lot of things around the house. Examples of this would be the direction that the toilet paper roll is installed and how thoroughly the dishes are cleaned before they are put in the dishwasher. I tend to rinse the dishes and then place them in the dishwasher. He literally uses soap and hot water and WASHES the dishes prior to placing them in the dishwasher. With our old dishwasher tablets the dishes didn't always come out spot free (and sometimes cups come out with white powder) but my argument is you can always throw them back in, right? When I was sent the Cascade Platinum packets and read that they promise to eliminate the need for pre-washing and even wash off food that has been stuck on for 24 hours, I got really excited.
Since part of the art of fancy food is also making it look delicious on the plate. I think it's exciting that Top Chef judge and editor of Food + Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, is now partnering with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation. Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum Presentation: “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
I will honestly admit that in the past I have let price determine which dishwashing detergent I would buy. Now that I see that I can obtain cleaner dishes with less work on my part I will honestly be switching to Cascade Platinum. Beyond making my dishes more sparkly I must say that serving my families meals on cleaner plates is not just more palatable but more desirable from every aspect.
Its not a secret that I love giveaways and contests so I wanted to share with you that Cascade is hosting a “My Platinum” contest on Instagram.
