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
