I grew up with a manual dishwasher. If you’re scratching your head, a manual dishwasher means we washed dishes by hand! Maybe that’s why I’ve always been a firm believer in soaking dishes. I love baking, but I really hate doing the dishes. When MyBlogSpark gave me the opportunity to take the 24 Hour Cascade Challenge, I had to give it a try. P&G, through MyBlogSpark, sent me a Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs kit.
The kit included:
- A beautiful Corningware baking dish with glass lid for cooking & a plastic lid for storing or potlucks
- 6 trial packs of Cascade Complete All-In-1 Action Pacs – one to use for my challenge and 5 for to share with you
- Wal-Mart Gift Card ($15) for one of my lucky readers
That’s the easy part. The hard part was the challenge. I do not mean it was difficult to cook, but it was difficult to resist the temptation to soak the dish. My instructions were:
- Bake a Blueberry Cobbler
- Set the empty baking dish out for 24 hours
- Without rinsing, put it in the dishwasher with Cascade Complete
No rinsing! No soaking! No way! But, I did it. (By the way, the cobbler was delicious!). The dish looked pretty sad the next day – all empty, dirty and abandoned. I had blueberry stain nightmares. I had my doubts, but the dish came out squeaky clean! Will I rinse in the future? Yes, it’s habit. But, it’s nice to know I don’t always have to if I forget and leave a dish out overnight.
How about you? Do you want to take the challenge too?
It’s easy, but you do have to leave a comment on this post. Maybe you could tell me about your dirtiest dish and how hard you had to scrub for it to come clean. If you’re a follower of this blog, you get an extra entry.
The prize? I have five trial packs of Cascade Complete All-In-1 Action Pacs to give away and one lucky reader will receive a $15 Wal-Mart gift card.
Hurry though as this giveaway will end May 25, 2011 at midnight
