Sticky Messes Are Easy To Clean With Cascade Platinum
“This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.”
A few months ago we hosted a party at our home and stunned our guests with Cascade Platinum’s ability to take filthy dishes and turn them sparkling clean… with hardly any effort! I personally discovered that I had been doing my dishes entirely wrong for years and the fact that I was cleaning and pre-soaking my dishes, prior to putting them into the dishwasher, was actually unnecessary. By removing all of the food and grime from my dirty dishes, there wasn’t anything for the Cascade dish soap to work with, rendering it useless. It was simply just getting sprayed around my dishwasher without anything to help it activate it’s food cleaning power. You actually need that food and dirtiness in order for the Cascade Platinum to work it’s magic. So I left my old ways behind and never looked back… I have to admit that live has just been dandy ever since! My dishes get done so much faster now that I am no longer spending that extra time rinsing them off. Plus my water bill has gone down since I am using less running water. Everything about this change has been positive an I could not wait to share my new found knowledge with another round of party goers.
French toast is by far one of the easiest and most delicious meals I like to make, so I could not wait to cook some for my guest. If you are interested and making a batch or two for your family, follow this recipe below:
French Toast Ingredients:
•1 cup half-and-half
•3 large eggs
•2 tablespoons honey, warmed in microwave for 20 seconds
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•8 (1/2-inch) slices day-old or stale country loaf, brioche or challah bread
•4 tablespoons butter
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together the half-and-half, eggs, honey and salt. When ready to cook, pour custard mixture into a pie pan. Dip bread into mixture, allowing it to soak for 30 seconds on each side. Then remove to a cooling rack that is sitting in a sheet pan, and allow to sit for 1 to 2 minutes. Over medium-low heat, melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch nonstick saute pan. Place 2 slices of bread at a time into the pan and cook until golden brown, approximately 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and place on rack in oven for 5 minutes. Repeat with all 8 slices. Serve immediately with maple syrup, whipped cream or fruit
Make them by mixing equal parts champagne and orange juice. Simple and easy!
The french toast came out delicious and we had quite the mess leftover in the kitchen. Everything went straight into the dishwasher without even landing in the sink. No cleaning, rinsing, soaking or anything… just took off the large pieces of food and they were good to go. Guests were shocked, once again, to see that the dishes came out sparkling clean despite not being rinsed off first. This never ceases to amaze people when I show them how clean my dishes come out when I use Cascade Platinum!
Here are some great tips on how to load your dishwasher to obtain the best results:
- Stack your dishes high and low but please be sure that bulky items DO NOT block the sprayer.
- Place tall dishes and pans in the back of the bottom rack so they DO NOT block the detergent chamber.
- Place glasses and other fragile items in the top rack. This helps keep them from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack.
- Set glasses between tines on the rack NOT over them as wet contact points can cause spots.
- Thread any long utensils through coffee-mug handles to help keep them secure in the wash.
- Check to ensure that there aren’t any stray utensils that will block the nozzle or sprayer.
- And a special call out for any big dishes: load them on the bottom rack, face down so the water is sure to reach all the nooks and crannies.
And here is an example of just how amazing Cascade is at getting your dishes super shiny and clean!
