I want a dishwasher. Everyone that walks into my home hears the same story, and even worse, when I am entertaining a lot of people, they hear my complaints about hand washing EVERYTHING. Then I have to listen to their less than comforting responses: dishwashers aren’t that great, I have to wash everything twice. They leave a film behind. Liars. You are all liars. Because when I go to my brother’s house, his dishes are spotless. There is no film left behind, or even a smidge of dirt. His glasses don’t taste like soap after they are washed. Seriously- what is my sister in law doing that no one else is doing?
Then I noticed that my mom was still using the old fashioned squeeze bottle full of dishwashing detergent in her machine. My mother in law was using the same. My sister in law, on the other hand, was using these futuristic looking packs in her soap dispenser. I asked her what they were and what she thought of them, and she replied with “They are Cascade and I love them.” No further explanation was given, or necessary.
So, since my mother in law hosted Christmas, and my mother was hosting New Years, I thought it would be a great time to introduce both of them to Cascade Complete Pac. Neither of them had used them, and quite honestly, neither of them were interested. Although they weren’t happy with the results of their other detergent, they mainly blamed their dishwasher for not cleaning the dishes properly. I think this was a perfect opportunity to start fresh. I handed my mother in law a Cascade Complete pack and both my mom and mother in law questioned if that little pouch can really clean the entire load of dishes. They scoffed at me and I crossed my fingers that it would work so I wouldn’t look silly.
The results were in less than an hour and low and behold, the dishes were clean, fresh, and film free! The mom’s in my life were impressed, and I saved the holiday.. or at least that is what I like to think 🙂 I was able to do it all over again at my mom’s house on New Year’s Day, but she already knew the power of the Cascade Complete Pac and actually requested that we use them. Turns out, Cascade Complete Pacs clean without pre-rinsing, and can get stuck on food off your plates. They clean twice as better as other brands and you don’t even need an extra rinsing agent!
So, I’m back to the same complaint: I want a dishwasher!
