Dawn Ultra & Cascade Complete + Giveaway


The after-disaster of all the cooking, baking, and eating in life stinks. There’s food to put away, spills to wipe up, dishes to wash, and for some strange reason everyone else in the house mysteriously disappears post-meal. Hmmmmmm.

Plus, there’s always that one pan which needs a little extra tough scrubbin’.

Like this one.

I have to admit that I didn’t know there was that much of a difference between dish washing liquids. I only figured it out this month when I set aside my “Liquid Cheap” in order to try out Dawn Ultra.

Here’s the thing: they both clean the dishes, but Dawn Ultra does it quicker, easier and with less product.

And omg, the suds lasted forever! I filled that pan and forgot about it for two hours. When I came back, it looked exactly like it did when I left, and even then the bubbles didn’t disappear when I started washing. Impressive, I gotta say.

Dawn UltraDawn Ultra contains double the everyday grease cleaning ingredients in every drop versus the leading non-concentrated dish soap. Dawn cleans 2X more greasy dishes while suds last making clean-up quick and easy.

Now moving beyond the sink over to the dishwasher…

As much as I love having a dishwasher do the washing for me, it’s only as good as the detergent inside it, right? And believe me, I’ve learned my lesson with that.

There’s a huge difference between brands and formulas, and Cascade Complete Pacs are one of the few kinds I like.

They pop neatly into my detergent compartment and they eliminate the need for pre-rinsing (but I still kinda like to do that). Best of all, the dishes come out sparkling clean and free of food residue.

Cascade Complete Pacs combine the best of powder and gel in one pac to power away 24-hour, stuck-on food. Eliminates the needs to pre-wash since each formula can dissolve tough food particles.
