Getting Dirty Dishes Clean With Cascade Complete



One of the things that drives me nuts is when the dishes come out of the dishwasher dirtier then when they went in. I mean really, I barely have time to put the dishes in the dishwasher in the first place. I certainly don’t have time to inspect each dish to check for scum and dirt on dishes that are supposed to be clean.

Now that my sons are older, my husband and I have decided that the boys really need to start doing some chores around the house. I thought that having them do the dishes would be a good start. My youngest son is in charge of filling the dishwasher and my oldest putting away the “clean” dishes. In theory, this idea is perfect. However I have one son who the concept of rinsing dishes escapes him and the other son couldn’t care less whether or not the dish he was putting away, was in fact clean or not. Do you know how embarrassing it is to have company over for dinner and  have to inspect every dish carefully before putting it on the table? Or how gross it is when you go take a sip of coffee and get a chunk of last nights dinner mixed in? Yuck!


The makers of Cascade Complete must have children, or they must have heard the complaints of other fellow parents who have the same problem that I have. Cascade Complete Pacs are wonderful because there is no chance of an over zealous child overfilling the soap dispenser. You just pop one pac in, shut the door and press start.

Cascade Complete combines the best of powder and gel detergent in one convenient formula. This detergent was designed to eliminate the need to pre-rinse dishes, even though I still want my son to rinse, just to get used to it. Cascade complete even works on food that has been stuck on for 24 hours. It actually dissolves the food particles, leaving dishes sparkly clean and as good as new!

With Cascade Complete, 2013 will be “Sparkling Clean”. I will spend a lot less time hounding my sons about the dishes. I will also not have to worry about grossing out myself or friends and family by having scummy dishes and that is a great feeling!

Cascade Complete comes in Gel, Powder and my favorite, Pacs and in the following scents Fresh, Lemon Burst, and Citrus Breeze. You can find it at most grocery and big box stores!
