Double Duty Divas Campaign: Cascade Platinum Party Post #1

*Disclaimer - This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Does your family use Cascade brand for their dishwashing needs? I know mine always has and this is a great product to introduce as Cascade Platinum. I received 21 packs of the Rinse Aid and packs, but only 10 are for the first party post I am hosting.

I was given a party pack of 21 Cascade Platinum packs as well as a small box of Rinse Aid for my party with the amazing website for campaigns known as Double Duty Divas. I have to follow specific instructions for the campaign when it comes to baking, washing, and the good things like that! The recipes that I am given for this campaign post are ultra starchy, tough food cleaning dishes, with my guests. 

Picture of the party pack that I received for this specific campaign for the party:

For my first post for the campaign, I made Mac N' Cheese which is courtesy of The Pioneer Woman, as well as two brownie mixes. 

In order to really show you the REAL results of the Cascade Platinum's 24 hour tough food cleaning, I was asked to bake a batch of brownies and do a Brownie Demo Experiment for my guests and let them know that the pan I used to bake them was sitting out for 24 hours, and then wash it in with the dishes from my party from the Mac N Cheese cooking session. I did not pre wash the pan I used the night before or rinse it in anyway before doing my party.

Mac N' Cheese Cooking:

As you know, macaroni and cheese is not the easiest mess to have to clean off of pans like this one was done by. I always tend to make a huge mess when I make it, so I knew that it was going to be the same thing for my party! I had to of course serve the dish while it was still hot and creamy. 

For the campaign, I had to SKIP the pre-wash due to the fact that Cascade Platinum works the best when the food soil is left directly on the dishes, because its special enzymes latch onto the food, which breaks it down so it can be washed away. See, if there's no food soil then there is nothing for the enzymes to attach itself to and then the detergent will not be working its hardest for me! 

I had to stack my dishes high as well as low, but the bulkier dishes couldn't block the sprayer. The tall dishes of course had to go into the back of the bottom rack of my dishwasher, so they didn't block the detergent chamber. And then, the glasses and other breakable dishes went on my top rack to help keep them from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack. If you have ANY bigger dishes, you need to load them on the bottom rack face down so that the water will reach all the nooks and crannies there are.

The true goal of this program is to show how truly clean the dishes are EVERY time! I have used a few different Cascade products for dishwasher, but the Cascade Platinum definitely works much better for my dishes.

I loaded my dishes into the dishwasher as per the instructions on the packet and added the Cascade Platinum as well as the Cascade Platinum Rinse Aid. I of course let the dishwasher run its normal cycle while guests are still at my home, so they can see how awesome the Cascade Platinum really works at the end of the cycle! 

Here's the brownie pan after 24 hours of being left out after baking:

  1. It sure did leave your pan spotless. I have to alternate between Cascade and Finish because we have really hard water here and I've noticed that Cascade don't do that great of a job at times.
