Review: Cascade Complete + $25 Walmart Gift Card Giveaway

Walmart gift cardGuess what? It’s time for another Frugal Bon Vivant giveaway! I was contacted recently by MyBlogSpark to do the 24-Hour Challenge with Cascade Complete.

The challenge involves baking a blueberry cobbler, leaving the empty baking dish out for 24 hours and then putting it in the dishwasher with Cascade Complete. However, I’m in the middle of a move, so by the time I got the info to review, baking in a half-packed kitchen was a little less than desirable. So instead I put it to the test of getting dried Kashi apple cinnamon instant oatmeal off my cereal bowl (If I don’t leave it in the sink to soak before putting in the dishwasher the cinnamon “bakes” to the bowl in the dishwasher and I end up hand washing after).

before afterThe results: The oatmeal bowl ended up spotless, so that was good news. Now the deal with Cascade Complete is that it’s an all in one dishwasher tab. I don’t currently use any of the “jet dry” rinse agent (the blue liquid) type products in my dishwasher, so while I was excited that it worked, I can’t vouch for it in comparison to a regular dishwasher detergent/rinse agent combo. But does their 24-hour claim hold true? Yes, I was surprised that it was better than my current one. If the price is reasonable, I would recommend it, but I’d have to do some price comparisons first. :)

Now the folks at MyBlogSpark & P&G have offered up a $25 gift card to Walmart to one of you — so let’s get this show on the road!
