Cascade Platinum Dinner party   #cascadeshiningreviews giveaway

This time of year is always busy for me!  School just started, so has soccer, PTO meetings, my boys both have November birthdays, several holidays and of course all the normal everyday things.  With all this going on at once I don't have time to do things twice.  I need it done right the first time.
Dishes seem to be the biggest offender when it comes to doing something twice!  I hate opening my dishwasher and realizing that my dishes are still dirty!
 I got an opportunity from Double Duty Divas to host 2 Cascade Platinum Dinner Parties.  So of course I did some research before the party and I was pretty impressed with what I read!  So I applied and to my excitement was APPROVED :)
With promises of triple action formula, no pre-wash needed and the power to remove 24 hour stuck on food I couldn't wait for my party.

First I was instructed to make brownies and let the pan sit over night.
I know a few of you are thinking that is crazy its going to be impossible to clean!  I too thought this and for sure thought my guest were going to laugh at me when I pulled a still dirty dish from the dishwasher.  
 I was to start my party by showing my guest the dirty pan and then during the party wash my brownie pan and show everyone the power of Cascade at the end.
So here is the before photos:

I love Brandon Jr's face!

We will see the after later. 
 I invited 10+ guest to my first party, as we enjoyed dinner I took the time to educate them on proper dish washing and to inform them about Cascade and its benefits:

1. Cascade Platinum delivers Cascade’s ultimate clean for dishes. It’s a premium product designed to achieve a clean so powerful it helps to keep the dishwasher sparkling while also delivering immaculately clean dishes each and every time. It even works on 24-hour stuck-on food! 
 2. Skip the pre-wash. Cascade Platinum works best when food soil is left on the dishes because its special enzymes latch onto that food, breaking it down so it can wash away. If there’s no food soil, there’s nothing for the enzymes to attach to and your detergent isn’t working its hardest for you. 
 3. Don’t worry about food left on the dishes damaging your machine or pipes. There is a garbage disposal built into the bottom of almost all dishwashers that works exactly like the disposal in your sink.

 By the end of dinner my brownie dish was done.  We all crowded around waiting to see the results and...

The brownie dish is on the top in the back.
No stuck on residue, no greasy feeling, no spots and my dishes smelled amazing.

My guest were beyond impressed!!

I had to post 2 photos of my nanny!  She doesn't understand cameras, she thought I was recording her and she kept turning the pan around and telling the camera what she thought and then afterwards told me that maybe she will be in a Cascade commercial hehe, I didn't have the heart to tell her I was just taking photos so I left her go on.
  You have to love grandparents!!!

I encouraged all my guest to go here:

And post first hand what they witnessed and how amazed they were at Cascade Platinum's cleaning power :).  I sent them each home with their own Cascade Platinum and Cascade Rinse Aids.

  2. Very cool review. Your Grama is adorable :)

  3. I have used non Cascade products and have been disappointed beyond belief..time and money down the drain. We only use Cascade Complete!

  4. I love using Cascade. One of my favorite things is that I never see spots or film on my dishes.

  5. We have hard water and sometimes it is hard to get the hard water stains off our dishes. It is annoying but there isn't much I can do until I buy a whole house water softener.

  6. I only use Cascade brand because it makes dishes so sparkly clean with no spots

  7. I learned that there's a refund offer for Cascade Platinum that starts September 1st.

  9. I have always used Cascade for my dish washer. It is the best one I have ever used. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Cascade does work really well. My kids have a habit of forgetting to load the dishwasher. I don't have to worry about the dried up food at all.

  11. I use Cascade because it seems like every single time I use something else I end up regretting it! The problem that makes me crazy is the spots on the glasses, I really hate that!

  12. When I had a dishwasher Cascade was the only brand I would buy, now that I am the dishwasher it is up to me to get them spotless and clean.

  13. I learned that cascade is handy for cleaning dishes

  14. Yes, I use cascade often and it works much better than any other brand out there. It gets the dishes cleaner and with no residue on them.

  15. I love cascade i find it does better than the other brands.

  16. My dishes always some out clean and I feel it works better than any other brands I have tried

  17. I use it already and it's awesome because I don't want to get a work out when I'm washing dishes and with Cascade it's so EZ!

  18. I am definitely purchasing some of this for my Mom who insists that dishes need to be pre washed. Way way back when I was young and had to load the dishwasher-I never pre rinsed (she never caught on) and there was never a problem--I think we used Cascade back then!

  19. I learned that More dishwasher brands in North America, like KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Maytag, and GE Appliances, recommend Cascade vs. any other automatic dishwashing detergent brand.
