This summer, I have relinquished the majority of my working responsibilities to have a summer. A summer full of countless beach trips, endless hours in the pool, ice cream, watermelon, play dates, new hobbies and plenty of childhood memories.

This is a sponsored post for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cascade. All cleantastic opinions are my own.
“The dishes are DONE, man” said Kenny Crandell in the iconic 90′s movie “Don’t Tell Mom The Babysitter Is Dead” after he shot the dishes down like clay pigeons.
That’s one way to get the dishes done.
There are a few household chores that I could do with out. Grocery shopping and washing dishes are at the very top of the list of stuff I hate to do. There’s something so mandatory and obnoxious about those two household chores that bum me out every time I have to do them (which with a family of 5 is nearly every day).
Daydreaming about shooting down my families dirty dishes like clay pigeons and then exclaiming “The dishes are DONE, man” to my husband is something I daydream about.
However, thanks to awesome cleaning products like Cascade Platinum, doing the dishes is virtually pain free. With no need to pre-wash or even to pre-rinse, Cascade Platinum cleans off the stuck on food and grease and leaves behind a beautiful spotless sheen on the dishes AND the dishwasher. That’s a two for one right there folks. A triple-action formula that provides ultimate clean for dishes AND helps prevent hard water filming so the dishwasher sparkles? Sign me up.
Given the opportunity to try these Cascade Platinum pacs out, I jumped at the chance. Any opportunity to do less hand washing before or after running the dishwasher sounds like a good time to me.
I was curious however, just how do these little magic Cascade Platinum pacs work? So I looked into it. Inside the quick dissolving pacs is a tripe action of threat to dirty dishes comprised of a triple-action formula with a better enzyme power that delivers a remarkable shine to your dishes and helps keep your dishwasher clean.
I can sincerely say with a straight face that Cascade Platinum pacs are amazeballs. My dishes and glasses have never had the same sheen. I regularly take pictures of my dinners to torture you all on IG and I have been known to clean the dishes with windex (seriously, I do) to make the plates shine. Now, with Cascade Platinum not only are my plates clean they’re SHINY.
Cascade Platinum saves moms time and energy ya’ll. And that in my book means the dishes are DONE, man.
Cascade has teamed up with Top Chef judge and Food + Wine magazine editor Gail Simmons to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation.
For the next 4 weeks, Cascade is encouraging fans to show off their sparkly clean plates, glasses, silverwar, pots and pans thanks to Cascade on Instagram during their Cascade “My Platinum” contest.

The dishes are so clean, even the baby approves!
Where my kid is tonight. In those awesome seats. At the Dodgers game. Where I haven’t seen a baseball game in almost 10 years.
I’m not jealous. Nope. I’m not.
Because I am here. With these two cuties. With their hooded bath towels. And their cute, happy faces.
He wiggled his tooth out and placed it on the table next to me. It landed with a click and an audible clang and my stomach lurched and curled, about to empty its day’s worth of contents.
I asked him to take it back as I turned away.
His father came home and was proud of his big boy accomplishment. He texted everyone he knew and exclaimed that his oldest lost his first tooth.
Blech…teeth gross me out.

Nothing says summer time quite like Popsicle’s after a swim in the pool or a day at the park. However, I’m not a big fan of unhealthy amounts of sugar in my kids snacks. I mean honestly, I have enough on my hands with 3 active kids, if I throw sugar in the mix we [...]

Long gone are the days of taking a picture and not seeing the result until you develop the film, those days are a distant past, so far away they’re barely an audible whisper. Long gone are also the days of taking a digital picture and not being able to share it on social media until [...]
