I prefer to use dishwasher pacs for cleaning my dishes in the dishwasher because they are easy to load into the detergent dispenser and it's much less messy.
I like to use the Cascade ActionPacs because they get the job done. My dishes come out clean and streak-free.
The combination of the Cascade ActionPacs and rinse aid make my dishes sparkle. The ActionPacs do the same job the Cascade powder does, only with less of a hassle and less of a mess. For example, I do not have to worry about dropping dishwasher detergent on the floor and immediately having to clean it up.
The pacs also take up less room in my cabinets which is great because my cabinet space is so limited.
Finally, I do not have to worry about measuring the amount of powder that goes into the dishwasher when I use the pacs.
The ActionPacs are compact and have a very nice, clean, crisp scent. It also has Dawn which fights through the grease. I do not have to worry about having to re-wash the dishes with them, because they clean the dishes thoroughly.
I enjoy any product that is easy to use and that works well. Cascade ActionPacs do that. All in all I would not use another product.
Thanks Jill for your Cascade detergent review.
You sound like you really enjoy using this product, and I can understand why the pacs are so much more convenient.
However, read on below for even more reviews of Cascade's dishwasher detergent packs, in many different varieties and scents, because some people have experienced some problems with them.
I do want to note, however, that these problems with detergent packs are not limited to the Cascade brand. For example, another reviewer has also reported that . Therefore, this may be an issue with the design of this type of product, instead of something specific to the Cascade brand.
Some of the reviews below actually provide some tips for minimizing the problems with these pacs, so read so that if you choose to use them you can handle them properly for less breaking, spilling and mess.
In addition, you can , or read other reviews that have already been submitted. (I would also love to hear your own tips for dealing with these detergent pacs.)
All-temperature laundry packs work in hot and cold water.
Effective in HE & standard washers.
Free & Clear laundry packs are made for sensitive skin.
0% dyes, synthetic fragrances, and artificial brighteners.
Citrus & Cedar laundry detergent packs are gently scented with essential oils and botanical extracts.
Also storage comes into play. I need to store at least 12 boxes or bags of dish detergent packs for a years worth of dishwasher loads but only two bottles of the gel detergent. So I can stock up on enough of the gel dish detergent for a year, without filling up my stockpile cupboard. Which in turn saves room for other items I need to store.
"We don't have a good handle on exactly what's going on," he says. But the symptoms are worse than with other types of detergent that kids ingest. One hypothesis, he says, is that something in these detergent packs is acting like a strong, short-acting sedative.
