Clean Up with Cascade-Easier Than You Think



When Dexter was born and I realized how many bottles and pump parts I was scrubbing everyday I begged Jason for a dishwasher.  Since we rent, we bought a portable dishwasher for $600.  It was BY FAR the best money I have ever spent in my entire life.  That was 6 years ago and my dishwasher works far better than any other I have ever used.  When I got accepted into the Cascade Party through Double Duty Divas I was elated.  I knew I had to have my party at my Mother in Law's house because her dishwasher is horrendous.  
My MIL, Mo, lives exactly 1.5 miles away from us so we are lucky enough to see her often.  She is a fabulous cook so we enjoy inviting ourselves over for dinner any chance we get.  The problem with that is that her dishwasher does everything except wash dishes.  She literally scrubs her dishes before she loads them in (and her dishwasher isn't that old).
When I told her that I was going to bring a bunch of friends and food over for a party she was excited to help me bake up some brownies and other goodies and show our crowd how well the new Cascade Platinum works.
We baked the brownies the night before and didn't soak the pan at all.  We let all of the pans and dishes sit in the sink until it was party time.  That was way harder on her than it was on me.  She is meticulous so she doesn't like having dishes sit in her sink or anywhere else in her kitchen for that matter.  It took a LOT of coaxing and convincing Mo that she didn't have to prewash her dishes.  I told her that Cascade Platinum actually works better when there is food stuck on dishes.  Here are a few of the pictures we took from our party:




My only regret is that I didn't take a video of my Mother in Law opening her dishwasher after washing her DIRTY dishes with Cascade Platinum.  She squealed!  It was amazing and she was SHOCKED!!  It was worth a million words because she started screaming that she was going to return the dishwasher pods that she just bought and she was going to get more Cascade Platinum (because I gave her and the rest of my guests each a bag when they came!)

It depends sometimes I clean before and sometimes I pray for a miracle.

I always clean 'em before I load 'em. I swear they never get clean if I don't. But maybe it's all in my head? Ha ha!

I usually rinse them and pre-scrub some of the dirtier pots and pans.

I would love not to scrub!!! It has been so bad that I only use the dishwasher to dry my dishes after I hand wash them!
