I am the true definition of a domestic dad. I take pride in being able to provide for and take care of my family. This includes home schooling, cleaning, cooking, and nurturing. I really enjoy because my kids are just so cute. Too bad they have to grow up.

Cleaning and Cascade Performance Boosters

The cleaning part of my domestic duties is not at the top of my list, but I do it and I do it well. I take full advantage of any help I can get to make this part of my life more efficient. Enter the Cascade Platinum cleaning products and Cascade Original ActionPacs.

As you can tell from my blog, we cook and eat A LOT. I consider our kitchen a place to gather, experiment, and learn. We use plenty of dishes and cookware that end up in the dishwasher. Not really sure if I could survive without the dishwasher. And, like any appliance, it also needs a good cleaning once in awhile.

Our dishwasher performs well and remains pretty clean, despite getting daily use. And, our dishes, glassware, and utensils always emerge sparkling. Cascade Platinum products are my go-to for keeping that machine working at peak performance. Cascade Platinum Rinse Aid makes sure everything is crystal clear and dry.

And, Cascade Platinum Dishwasher Cleaner makes sure the dishwasher doesn’t have mineral deposit build-up or funky odors. Cascade Platinum ActionPacs clean the dishwasher as they wash the dishes.

To be clear, I am not the only one who loads and unloads the dishwasher. My wife and I are pretty good about giving the dishes a quick rinse before they go into the dishwasher. The kids? Not so much. Brownie mix, pizza sauce, and even some cupcake sprinkles have been known to take up residence in the dishwasher. Still, we enlist the help of the kids and encourage them to pitch in when the dishes, and general housecleaning, need to get done.
