Just today I was moaning to my husband about not knowing where the time goes and how there is never enough. As I unstacked and stacked the dishwasher for the third time today I threw my hands up in exasperation saying “I don’t know what the answer is, if I sit still for one minute it feels like the to do list multiplies astronomically!” In my moment of self pity I felt like my lack of time was due to my family of 7 and our large size, meaning lots of dishes and lots of laundry, but the truth is no one feels like they have enough time. It’s the one universal truth we can all agree on… there is never enough time to get it all done.
Cascade is my go to dishwasher detergent specifically Cascade Platinum. I have an older dishwasher that is not the best and I notice a big difference in the dishwasher soap I use and no one guarantees me clean dishes like Cascade Platinum. I am a pre-washer, a habit born of rewashing way too many dishes before I discovered Cascade Platinum, so when I found out I could skip the pre-wash and gain an extra hour a week I was ecstatic. I mean one whole extra hour… that is huge I could do something earth shattering like take my time in the shower!!!!
In all seriousness with the amount of dishes I do saving time is a big deal and no pre-washing is awesome, just rinse and stack. My kids can rinse their own dishes and if the dishwasher is empty they even stack so right there I am making my life easier.
A new survey from Cascade Platinum and Marie Claire reveals that nearly all people are doing their dishes incorrectly with 96-percent wasting up to an hour pre-washing their dishes each week – when they should not. In order to get the most optimum clean and shine, it’s important to skip the prewash and use Cascade Platinum. This is because the special enzymes in Cascade Platinum latch onto the leftover food particles, breaking them down so they can wash away – even 24-hour stuck on food. With no food particles on the dishes, the enzymes can’t do their job as well and this can lead to dish issues.
