It took quite a leap of faith for me to give Cascade Action Pacs a try without pre-washing/scrubbing, but when I did, I was SHOCKED! My dishes actually came out clean! Even when I put them into the dishwasher with dried on food!
I can still remember looking at my husband and bemoaning all the years I've spent scrubbing each dish clean and then washing them in our supposedly high-efficiency Kitchenaid dishwasher. I can't even start to estimate the time these little packs of gold are saving me, not to mention water.
While they are a little more expensive than the traditional Cascade powder dishwashing detergent I was using, the cost is more than made up for in the time and water savings.
I have now used one entire bag of pacs, and in the time it took me to go through them, I only had to re-wash my crock-pot insert once (it had A LOT of baked on food residue) and one knife that had dried on banana on it. But other than that, those little Action Pacs have done all the hard work for me!
If you are looking for an easy mess-free way to get your dishes done (especially if you are like I was and have been pre-scrubbing all your dishes), give these a try! I'm so glad I did. :)
