How Cascade Platinum Pacs Made Me Fall in Love with My Dishwasher All Over Again

I love my dishwasher. I love how it sounds, I love how it cleans, and I love how it makes the dishes hot and steamy at the end of a washing cycle. What I don’t love is how grimy it can get after a while and how my dishes get a little filmy from time to time. Of course, that’s not my dishwasher’s fault. (I wouldn’t dare blame that on her!) The real reason is because of the dishwasher liquid I’m using.

Since my current liquid has let me down one too many times, I was overjoyed when the folks at Mom Central asked me to write a review of the new Cascade Platinum Pacs.


Right off the bat, what I liked about the Platinum Pacs is that you don’t need to deal with squirting dishwasher liquid into the little receptacle thingy. Just drop one of the little Platinum Pacs in the thingy and let them work their magic. And oh yes, they are magical.

Not only do the Platinum Pacs clean food, grease and grime off your dishes, they use a “triple action recipe” designed to leave dishes virtually spot-free. As if that’s not enough, that same triple action recipe also cleans the inside of your dishwasher and prevents the build-up of hard-water film on your dishwasher walls and parts. Clean dishes AND a clean dishwasher? I’m a little aroused just thinking about it.

After a few uses of the Cascade Platinum Pacs (at only about 29 cents per wash), I definitely noticed a difference over my old dishwasher liquid. Not only is my dishwasher cleaner, but so are my dishes! And clean dishes mean a lot to me because I take tons of photos of recipes and meals, and there’s nothing worse than great-looking food on a not-so-great looking dish!

Speaking of the importance of presentation and preparation when it comes to meals, don’t forget to check out the info about Cascade’s partnership with Gail Simmons below. Also below, you can find out how to win a brand new kitchen in Cascade’s “My Platinum” contest. Good luck!
