Anyone who's seen my house knows that housework isn't my favorite thing. I'd much rather be playing with the kids or crafting up a storm. That's why it's so important for me to find the best working products that really work, work really well and help make clean up time faster and easier. I'm willing to bet you are all interested in that too. I have the answer for your dishes!
I have been on the verge of breaking up with my dishwasher for awhile now, cups that came out with streaks, plates that came out with lingering food residue...yuck. I hated having to pre-wash my plates and then still have to re-wash some after a running a load of dishes. I thought it had to be an old machine. When the Cascade Platinum pacs for review showed up, I'll admit to being skeptical. I mean how much of a difference could they really make? Turns out, a lot.
The first wash I noticed right away, how sparkly my glasses were and how my plates and bowls were not only clean they were bright white. I had no idea the difference would be so noticeable! This is due to Cascade Platinum being designed to deliver exceptional shine, virtually spot free dishes, advanced tough food cleaning, and their best film prevention for a sparkling machine. They offer the best clean from the Cascade family of products for not only your dishes but also your dishwasher itself.
Beautifully clean dishes, shining flatware, and spot free glasses are more important than ever in our world of Facebook and Instagram, where you can see countless meals all on display in people's feed. I personally love taking meal pictures, here's a recent one of my favorite healthy breakfast. Prior to now, I usually tried to make the food take up most of the picture because of my less than perfect looking dishes.
Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine Gail Simmons has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is as important as preparation. Impress with a Platinum presentation and keep your dishes perfect and ready for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests. See some of her plating tips in the video above and learn how to put your best food forward with culinary creations that pop. I'm excited to try them so that my recipes posts here on the blog will make the food look even yummier!

I'm not usually one to get excited about a cleaning product, scrapbook supplies are usually the only thing that gets me going besides my family! But I definitely feel Cascade Platinum is an improvement on the other cleaners we've used. I plan to continue using Cascade Platinum and I'm looking forward to picking out a new set of glasses, because this time I know they're going to stay nice and clear without build up over time.
Even if you are happy with your dishwasher cleaning products, I urge you to give Cascade Platinum pacs a try and see the difference for yourself!
