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 4: My Platinum Table (Entry Period: 6/24-6/30) — Show us your sparkling tablescape for your most special celebrations!

I love my dishwasher.  I swear that baby is another member of my family.  Yes, I hate washing dishes that much.  That is why I was happy to become a Cascade Platinum Ambassador!  Cascade is one of the few dishwasher detergents out there that do exactly what it says it will do.  This is the first of 4 posts I’ll be doing about Cascade and my experience with it.

I usually end up running the dishwasher every day.  However, it tends to be in the morning, so our dinner dishes sit for a pretty long time before they get washed.  There is nothing worse than stuck on oatmeal and ketchup.  Actually, there is something worse — having to wash your dishes before you stick them in the dishwasher.  Defeats the purpose of a dishwasher if you ask me!

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.  First, they power away tough, 24 hour stuck-on food.  Using this eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes.  For a busy mom like myself, this is a huge plus in my book.   I love that it helps maintain the look of new machines and helps prevent additional hard-water build-up (which is super important to us since we just got a new dishwasher a couple of months ago!).  Lastly, it delivers an exceptional dishware shine.

Are your current dishwashing products performing to your standards? Do you notice streaks or films after washing? Do you ever find yourself wasting time by pre-rinsing or double-washing dishes? Or are you already a Cascade fan like myself and don’t have any of these issues?

 

Herman T’s Review and Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winner is Janet F. Congrats!

Are you a fan of BBQ sauce? If so, Herman T’s is something you have to try!

Herman’s T’s BBQ sauce was created by Herman T Jones back in the 1950’s and his grandson has recreated the original recipe.  However, this isn’t like the BBQ you normally are use to.  It is a mix and you add water and ketchup to it!  The reason I love this?  You can stick to their recipe or you can keep adding ketchup till you get it to taste right to you!  It also allows me to say that I made it from scratch :) because well, I kind of did.  You are also able to make whatever serving size you need.  The original sauce is quite good and the spicy sauce has a little kick to it.  I think the spicy would work great on a pulled beef sandwich (I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!).

Since I liked the BBQ sauce, I’ve arranged for one lucky reader to also try Herman T’s BBQ sauce.  The winner will get a package of the original and a package of the spicy sauce to try. Here’s what you need to do:
