cascade complete:: take the 24-hour challenge {giveaway}

Yes... we took the challenge.... sort of:)

We baked a delicious blueberry cobbler and enjoyed it. Then the leftovers sat covered in the frig a couple of days while we went out of town. Bummed that I didn't really do the challenge right and waiting for room in the dishwasher, I left in the fridge another couple of days ;/

Finally, I got it out, dropped out the food fragments left. I didn't immediately soak or scrub out the brilliant blueberry purple... but I wanted to, in fear of staining the beautiful white dish provided for the challenge;)

Instead I left it out on the counter for 24 hours... and stuck it into a normally loaded dishwasher. Instead of using my own generic detergent, I stuck in the Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPac knowing that I really deserved to scrub out this dish if it didn't get clean... if the sticky (and now dried) blueberry even could be removed.
Before

When the dishwasher was finished, that dish was the 1st I checked!!
And I really was amazed at how clean it got....
After

This picture doesn't lie. You can tell that a few marks were left and I did get them off very easily with a soapy cloth. And since the dish was in there with other dishes (real life) it could have even been the way it was IN the dishwasher... my dishwasher tends to be pretty FULL:)

But for the dish to have baked bubbling blueberries and blueberry pie filling, sat in the frig for 4 or 5 days ;/, left open on the counter to dry out for 24 hours and then NO pre-washing before sticking it in the dishwasher... I was impressed! Super easy and no work on my part!

Now I'm wondering what other sticky and delicious meals Cascade Complete can clean up for me;) Especially when I can't immediately soak or don't want to spend time scrubbing out the pots and pans.

** And just a FYI from P&G, there is another Family Movie Night happening tonight (Saturday June 11th) on NBC at 8/7c! It's called Field of Vision and you can check out more and even watch a trailer here!! I've enjoyed the other movies co-sponsored by P&G and hope to enjoy this one too;)

  9. I would LOVE Cascade Complete to remove the condiments that never seem to get rinsed off the plates (ie. ketchup, ranch, mustard) and sit in the sink waiting for pre-scrub before making their way into the dishwasher.
