Sponsored: @MyCascade Final Thoughts – Week 4 #MyPlatinum

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

cascade1I’ve been using Cascade Platinum now for about a month. I am just as happy with it as it I was when we started this journey.  I run about a load of dishes a day, so I was able to really give the Cascade Platinum Pacs a workout.


Cascade© Platinum Pacs achieve a top-tier clean so powerful that they even help keep your dishwasher machine sparkling and deliver a variety of dish care benefits:

• Powers away tough, 24 hour stuck-on food
• Eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes
• Helps maintain the look of new machines and helps prevent additional hard-water build-up
• Delivers exceptional dishware shine

I have not pre-washed anything in a month, and that is a beautiful thing! I’ve used it to rid ourselves of dried on ketchup, spaghetti sauce, and even dough!  I will be continuing to use Cascade myself!

The Cascade “My Platinum” Instagram contest is in full force. This contest encourages fans to
upload photos related to the weekly contest themes. You get to show off how sparkly Cascade makes all
your pots, pan and plates! Here’s what’s still left:

  • Week 3: My Platinum Clink (Entry: 6/17-6/23) — Show us how you serve up creative concoctions in sparkling glasses. Cheers!
  • Week 4: My Platinum Table (Entry Period: 6/24-6/30) — Show us your sparkling tablescape for your most special celebrations!
