My husband and I recently hosted a party and invited quite a few of his Remote Control Car Racing friends over and their spouses!  It will was a fun night filled with laughter, beer, brownies, mac n’ cheese and of course Cascade Platinum!

When it comes to washing dishes I am lazy and I don’t like touching the old food parts, thankfully I have a dishwasher but I have struggled with finding a good dish washing detergent or soap to use that thoroughly cleans everything, then along came Cascade Platinum and blew my mind away!


Who doesn’t love brownies? I am probably the messiest cook in the world but surprisingly I managed to keep my kitchen clean this time whilst making some brownies for my party guests to enjoy!


Now do you see what I mean by messy? Luckily I managed to keep everything inside the bowl, then I placed my brownie mix in the oven and once it once ready and cool down I placed the dish in the refrigerator overnight to keep everything fresh.


I also followed a cool recipe for Mac n’ Cheese then added my own touch to it with tomatoes and crumbs on top, can you imagine having to wash this in sink or with cheap dish washing detergent?


For once my cooking turned out great and as you can see, this dish was in need of a good cleaning.

Did you know that skipping the pre-wash is a key step for success in the dish-washing process? I actually had no idea until Cascade kindly filled me in, usually when I put things in the dishwasher I rinse them off first so that there is practically no food left anywhere and I have been totally doing it wrong.

By skipping the pre-wash Cascade Platinum works to it’s best ability, it’s special enzymes latch onto food and break it down so it can wash away.  If there is no food left, then the enzymes cannot attach to anything which means your detergent isn’t working it’s hardest for you!

Just toss the large bits of food left in the trash then let Cascade work it’s magic for you, saving you time with no pre-wash!

Did you also know that most dishwashers have a garbage disposal built in? No need to worry about any food clogging up your dishwasher.


Once my guests were finished eating we then moved onto some beer and wine, then I loaded up both the top and bottom trays in my dishwasher and used both Cascade Platinum detergent and Rinse Aid.

3Now for the results!  Both my guests and I were shocked at how sparkly, shiny and clean each dish turned out, this was my first time using a rinse aid and my first time using Cascade Platinum (although I have used their older products).  I have never in my lifetime using a dishwasher seen such sparkly clean dishes come out of my dishwasher!

Usually I am left scrubbing off any excess soil or I end up putting my dishes back in the washer for another round, not this time and I am super happy to have found out about the rinse aid too!

Each of my guests also took home a Cascade Platinum detergent and Rinse Aid to try out in their own dishwasher!

To make the most out of each dish wash with Cascade Platinum, follow the steps below!


Overall the party was a success and my guests learned about Cascade Platinum, we were all shocked with the amazing results and I will be using both Cascade detergent and Rinse Aid from now on!
