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.
I never thought I would ever load dishes in my dishwasher without first pre-rinsing/washing them. Never, ever. But, I guess as the old saying goes, never say never…because I am. And they are still coming out clean every single time thanks to Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Pacs. Not only are my dishes cleaner…but it is so powerful, it even helps your dishwasher stay sparkling!
The new Platinum Pacs delivers Cascade’s best clean with a premium, advanced triple action formula that helps prevent residue on your dishes, and even filming on your machine, scrubs away tough 24 hour stuck-on food, eliminates the need to pre-wash dishes AND has the Grease Fighting Power of Dawn. It is available in both Fresh and Lemon Burst Scents…and is available in most major retailers near you!
I have been trying out the Platinum Pacs and telling you about them and the #MyPlatinum Instagram contest for a couple of weeks. It is so easy to enter that all you have to do is take a picture related to this weeks theme, upload it to the Instagram contest and use the tag #MyPlatinum. This weeks theme is “My Platinum Clink.” Just share an image of your favorite drinks served in shining glasses and submit the image to the Instagram contest and you are done! Here is my entry this week:
This is one of my favorite drinks, especially during the summer. And it is SUPER easy to make and is going to look fabulous in your sparkling glasses. I recently made these for myself and some young girls I had visiting for the day. They loved that I got out the “cool” glasses for them. We had a fabulous time sipping on our treats, munching on popcorn and lounging in and by the pool.
Here is all you need: Some Ginger Ale, A tube of punch (like goes in a water bottle), some ice and a glass. Place ice in glass, sprinkle the punch over the ice and fill with Ginger Ale. Stir.
Seriously, that is it! You have a delicious sparkly drink to go in your sparkling, shiny glasses!
A toast to a great summer!

It is so true that now, more than ever, people eat with their eyes, and the evidence is all over sites like Facebook and Instagram. With that in mind, Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation. Here are some great tips from Simmons to help you make your food look it’s best:
· From prep to plating: It’s more than just a great-tasting recipe, but also perfect presentation. Sparkling dishes, shining flat ware and spot-free glasses truly let you put your best food forward with culinary creations that pop!
· Gail recommends impressing with a Platinum Presentation: “The easiest recipes pop with unexpected, gourmet presentations. Drizzle bright sauces on sparkling white plates or layer desserts in crystal-clean glassware. Keep your presentation sparkling with Cascade Platinum, which keeps dishes perfect for anytime entertaining and impromptu guests.”
