I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
It took exactly one wash cycle with Cascade Platinum for me to see results. I will be honest here and say we have NEVER used the “packs” type of detergent in our dishwasher. It has always been the gel kind. These packs are kind of pretty to look at and our samples are lemon scented. Let me tell you they smell really good when you are washing dishes! For our testing we had TWO main areas to focus on to see results (I will post photos soon!) We have one certain glass that is notorious for having water spots and film, and the silverware, ALWAYS had spots. As sure as I am sitting here today that glass was crystal clear and the silverware was shiny too! As a bonus I took a plastic cup, the kind that always has a white film on it after washing, just to see if there was a film and there wasn’t. I couldn’t believe it.
Not too long ago I personally thought the whole “pack” idea was a hoax. I thought how could that even work since it doesn’t have separate releases for the rinse aid and all. Then these packs popped up everywhere including laundry. It wasn’t until I tried them that I believed it. I really thought this review wasn’t going to work because our water is SO hard. I am quite happy that Cascade Platinum has proved me wrong! The chelation is the key to breaking the hard water down, it just wraps around the minerals and zaps them so they can’t leave a film on my dishes. I love it, I wish I could do that in the whole well!
