CLOSED ~ Cascade 24 hour Challenge and $25 Walmart Card Giveaway



I was recently asked if I would take the Cascade Complete - 24 Hour Challenge. What is the 24 hour challenge, you ask? Well, Cascade has come up with a new product. They say it will clean the messiest dishes, even if you leave them out for 24 hours.

Now, I am not the regular dishwasher in the house but every so often I have to do them so I know that sometimes they come out not so clean depending on the liquid or tablets we use. There have been times when I or hubby have to re-wash certain dishes. So when I got these Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs, I was wondering if they would really work. According to the information I received, they break down, dissolve, and rinse away tough food particles, leaving your hands free and your dishes sparkling. I would not have to pre-soak the dish at all.

I received a pack of the Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs and a wonderful Corningware Casserole Dish. My challenge was to bake a Blueberry Cobbler. Those of you who read my blog, know I don't really follow instructions very well so instead of Blueberry Cobbler, I made my famous Lasagna. Why, you ask? Because my lasagna is messy, messy, messy and it is the most difficult thing to clean up especially if I were to leave it out for 24 hours. So I made my lasagna and it was quite tasty! But after all was said and done, it was a mess.

When I told hubby that I had to leave this out for 24 hours, he thought I was nuts. Since he does most of the dishes, he was a Doubting Thomas and said that we would have to re-wash it after it came out of the dishwasher. He also thought I was nuts when I told him to use just one Action Pac. We usually use 2 tablets of a leading brand. But he went along with it and left the dish out for a day.

Well lo and behold, after putting it in the dishwasher with Cascade Complete, it actually came out sparkling clean. We were both surprised! But it worked and worked well. I think we are converts to Cascade Complete! And we have been using the rest of the pack for days and our dishes are coming out really clean. They are a lot cleaner with Cascade Complete then with the other brand we were using. So there you have it folks, a thumbs up for Cascade Complete.

And the people at P&G through MyBlogSpark were also wonderful enough to send me a $25 Walmart card so one of my readers can go try out Cascade Complete All-in-one ActionPacs for him/herself! WOO! So enter, enter and enter!!!

  15. I love breakfast for dinner. That means eggs. And eggs are the worst to clean after they sit for any length of time. If the new Cascade can clean day-old egg from dishes, it can clean anything!

  36. the worst is my husband. he leaves the biggest mess on my dishes. i mean he never rinses out his bowls, cups or anything for that matter. The biggest mess i had yesterday would have to be the egg salid mess.
    On that note i happen to know for a fact how amazingly well Cascade Compleat all in one action packs because I tossed all the dishes in to the dishwasher in a huff one night, I just scraped off the food and put the unrinsed unsoaked dishes into the dishwasher includeing dried oatmeal and pancake batter...well when it was time to remove my clean dishes there was not a spot on any of them. I would recomend this product to anyone who has a husband and/or kiddos who seem to think there is a live in maid!
