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.
Guess what, folks? I’m a brand new Cascade My Platinum Ambassador! Yippee!
What exactly does that mean?
Well, it means that over the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing information about Cascade Platinum dish washing detergent with you as I begin to use it in my own home.
As dishwasher-owning people know, it’s ALL about the detergent, isn’t it?
When I was growing up, my parents bought a home that had a dishwasher already built into the kitchen. My dad, saying that dishwashers wasted too much water, removed the dishwasher and replaced it with shelving for my mom. My mom didn’t want the dishwasher either, as she said you still had to wash the dishes before loading it, so what was the point?
I remember the agony of seeing that dishwasher being pulled out of the cabinets…knowing full well that as the oldest daughter, that meant more work for me. I wasn’t wrong! My mom and youngest sister still bicker over who is going to wash the dishes, some 20 years later!
I remember growing up, in my teens and then my 20s, always gazing longingly at the dishwasher I saw in friend’s homes. As you might be aware from previous blog posts, Chris and I bought my grandparent’s old home…which didn’t have a dishwasher.
Not only did it not have a dishwasher, but our original cabinetry is so narrow that we can’t actually fit a dishwasher into the cabinets without remodeling the entire kitchen. Our kitchen is nothing fancy, but because the 50 year old cabinets are solid maple, I just can’t wrap my head around tearing them out!
So Chris and I got creative and we bought a portable dishwasher in 2006.
BEST INVENTION EVER IN THE HISTORY OF MAN.
While I don’t pre-wash dishes before loading them in the dishwasher, I do rinse off any food that’s leftover. Lately we’ve had some issues, even with me doing this, with our dishes coming out clean. Sometimes I have to wash the pots and pans by hand, which really stinks. I have a feeling that my spotty glasses might be the result of my budget-friendly dishwasher detergent, and I’m excited to try out the new Cascade Platinum and share my findings with you!
