Yesterday I posted about the sample pack I got from P&G through WagJag. I decided to start with last night's dishes and the Cascade Platinum Pacs sample.
I usually use the Finish Powerball Tabs in my dishwasher. Yesterday I decided to dive right in and give these a trial by fire, since we had pasta for dinner and the sauce tends to get all over the place and there are times when I have to re-wash dishes after they've come out of the dishwasher. Did I mention that I am not a pre-rinser or pre-soaker? I'm not. I toss them in there at the end of the day and hope for the best.
According to Cascade's website, here is a description of this product:
I received the 'Fresh Burst' Scent. I sniffed the pac and it did smell pretty fresh. Not overbearing and perfumey, just nice. I popped it in with no pre-wash and let the little dishwasher elves work their magic. I got home from work today and peeked into the dishwasher to see if there was any difference from what I usually see.
You know what? There was! I was truly surprised to see a few differences from what I normally get. First off, it was so shiny inside my dishwasher. I guess this stuff works really well on stainless steel... I kinda want to smear it all over the outside of my appliances to see if I can get them that shiny on the outside! Secondly, I did not have to pick one speck of dried, crusty food off of any utensil, dish or pan. That was a pleasant change. I saved the best for last: There was no gross film on the bottom of my glasses! Every bloody time I empty the dishwasher there's a little dried pool of yuck on the bottom of each and every glass that was sitting in my top rack. Every one. So annoying and gross and sometimes I have to re-wash them because there is too much to clean off with a paper towel. That did not happen with this load. I don't know if that was a fluke (I'm glad they sent me two sample pacs, tonight I'll use the second and see if I get the same result), but this stuff really, really seems to work! Just to be fair and impartial, I usually try to post something I didn't like, but I can't think of one thing. I was really, really pleased with the results and will absolutely be switching from my usual brand to the Cascade Platinum.
