A Breakfast For Dinner Clean Plate Club Party // + A Giveaway

Monday, September 29, 2014

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. 

Everyone loves breakfast for dinner so that's exactly what I did one Friday night with some of my closest friends and family.   When everyone arrived, they received a champagne glass of Orange Juice and got the chance to check out my signage!

Everyone could use some tips on making the most of their dishwasher right?

I told my guests how Cascade Platinum is the ultimate way to clean dishes.  In fact it was designed to clean dishes SO well that it can even get your actual dishwasher sparkley! Cascade Platinum works well on 24-hour stuck on food, just like the brownie dish that I loaded in front of them from the night before.   I then let everyone enjoy some brownies! 

It was time for me to start cooking breakfast for dinner.  The delicious breakfast meal was titled A Toast to French Toast.  Such a starchy and syrupy meal! My guests were excited to see how the dishes would clean up. 

 As we waited for things to cook and be ready, we discussed how to get immaculately clean dishes.

My tips were:

[] Never block your sprayer with bulky items. It's okay to stack dishes high and low but if you block the sprayer your machine can't work effectively.
[] Place tall dishes and pans in the back of the bottom rack so they don't block the detergent chamber.
[] Glasses or fragile items should be placed in the top rack so they are safe from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack.
[] Long utensils should be threaded through coffee-mug handles in order to keep them secure during the wash cycle.

James heard that there would be syrup on the French Toast so he was happy.

Once it was ready - I served it and as everyone ate, I showed them how I would be cleaning my gunky dishes with Cascade Platinum!


I explained  that Cascade Platinum works best when the food soil is left on the dishes because it's special enzymes latch onto the food and break it down so that it can all wash away. If I were to pre-wash it, there would be nothing for the enzymes to attach to and the detergent wouldn't be working its hardest for me. And no worries about damging the machien or pipes with stuck on food because there's a garbage disposal built into the bottom of most all dishwashers. 

And did you know:
96% of people surveyed spend up to an hour pre-washing their dishes each week.   Yet, 74% of that group are STILL having daily dishwasher fails with dishes coming out dirty, spotted, or streaked.   And 51% of them end up re-washing the dishes that didn't get clean the first time!!!      

And 46% of people surveyed believe that skipping a pre-wash means that their dishes will come out dirty and gross. WRONG.    Remember everything I said above?   

I also explained that I put the brownie dish and some of the other items on the bottom rack face down so the water could get all the hard to reach spots! 

Look at how simple it is to just toss a Cascade Platinum packet in and add some Cascade Rinse Aid.

We all hung around and chatted and watched some TV while I ran the dishwasher.

Everyone got to pick up their goodies and instructions and we waited for the big reveal.

Holy moly!   Once again, super squeaky clean and spotless!

I told everyone to follow Cascade on Twitter and Like them on Facebook so we can rave about them on there!
