Cascade Platinum Pacs deliver the most powerful clean available from Cascade while maintaining the interior of the dishwasher. Let’s face it, if the dishwasher isn’t clean inside, how clean are the dishes really?
My dishwasher isn’t new. At all. It’s about 10.5 years old. It does a reasonable job. Most of the time dishes come out great. Occasionally we’ll have a load that just didn’t get clean for whatever reason.
After learning about Cascade Platinum Pacs, I checked out the interior of our dishwasher and it was icky! I couldn’t believe how gross it really was. Just being honest as much as I’d rather not admit it. These pictures are big enough – I just can’t show them full size. Ewww.
We do have exceptionally hard water. When we first bought our house we had to replace the dishwasher because it was completely limed up. I scraped it off the sides, used Lime Away and the thing plugged up. Bad news. We finally just replaced it. The water softener was ruined too, due to there not being a water softener installed. So we bought a new dishwasher, water softener and water heater soon after moving in. $$$ after buying a 8 year old house!
Now I’ve tried and been using the Cascade Platinum Pacs the last few weeks. I’d have to say, after I ran the first load was disappointed. My dishes didn’t come out as clean as I thought they should and the inside of my dishwasher wasn’t any cleaner. Just not cool. I took a sponge and wiped the inside top of the dishwasher. The sponge came back full of gunky goopy stuff. Ugh.
So I decided, that’s it. Time to clean this thing. I took it apart. Pulled out the baskets and other parts that snapped out in the back that spray the water. Cleaned it all out and replaced it. I wiped down the whole interior of the dishwasher. Not good at all. I should pay attention to these things more.
Every dishwasher is different. Mine is over 10 years old and the interior wasn’t sparkling to begin with so I guess I can’t expect miracles. My theory is, the Cascade Platinum Pacs loosened up all the crud and made it easy for me to wipe out and remove.
Now my dishes have this beautiful finish on them after washing. They truly are beautifully clean! Cascade Platinum Pacs really do deliver exceptional dishware shine! My dishes look new.
Use Cascade Platinum Pacs to help maintain the look of new machines and help prevent additional hard-water film build-up.
