Easy and Green Spring Cleaning with CleanPath

This winter I’ve had all sorts of spring cleaning and home improvement projects in mind!  But regardless of the season, I always try to maintain a clean home.  When it comes to household cleaners, I look for 3 main criteria.

1. I look for something that’s antibacterial.  This is just a given, considering I mostly use these products in my kitchen and bathrooms, where are some of the more germ-ridden areas in any home.

2.  I like something with a nice and clean (but not overwhelming) scent.

3.  And I like products that are environmentally friendly. [Read more...]

Great fabric softeners and scent boosters are a must in my house! I always want to make sure the boys have extra fresh clothes (and me too!). Not to mention, there’s nothing like fresh sheets and blankets for the beds.  Purex Crystals are a great product for this.  I like them, because I don’t have to worry about the product staining or fading out our clothes the way some liquid products.  They also give my clothes a very fresh scent, and I like that I can easily measure them out for any size load.

Today I’m sharing another party, starring Cascade as the clean up crew.  For this party, we had a brunch of sorts, featuring a French Toast Bake, as well as bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, and other breakfast treats, like…

Pina Colada Smoothies

Our guests received samples of Cascade, was well as product information and tips.

The biggest and most important tip to note……when you Cascade Platinum, NO pre-rinse is needed!  A survey found that 46% of respondents thought that skipping the pre-rinse would lead to dirtier dishes, but Cascade Platinum has an advanced triple-action formula has powerful enzymes that break down even 24-hour stuck-on food for Cascade’s best clean and shine.

I’ve definitely seen the proof of this, having used the product for the last couple of months.  Since I only run my machine two or three times a week, my dishes have plenty of time to set up and really put the product to the test.Cascade has worked great on everything from casserole dishes and crock pots to baking skillets and pans.

Skipping the pre-rinse not only helps your dishes to come out clean and shiny, but it also saves you time.  Here are some other tips, I shared with my guests:

1.  You can stack ‘em high or stack ‘em low.  Just make sure bulky items don’t block the sprayer.

2. Place tall dishes & pans in the back of the bottom rack so they don’t block the detergent chamber.

3. Check your bottom.  Place glasses and other fragile items in the top rack.  This keeps them away from the powerful sprayer under the bottom rack.

4.  Your tine to shine. Keep glasses looking great.  Set them between tines on the rack, not over them.  Wet contact points can cause spots.

5. Lock & load. Threading longer utensils through coffee mug handles can help keep them secure in the wash.
