What temperature should my water be?
You can wash your dishes in hot or cold water, since our products are formulated to perform in any water temperature. Try helping to save energy by washing in cold water. You’ll find you get a great clean, with less energy used. If you prefer to hand-wash using hot water, try Dawn Hand Renewal with Olay Beauty.
What should I do if I have hard water?
All of our dish products are designed to work effectively in all kinds of water hardness. Our dishwasher pacs, like Cascade All-in-1 Pacs, are formulated with water softeners to help fight hard-water deposits on your dishes and—as always—are the perfect dose.
Is there a correct way to load the dishwasher?
When you’re loading your dishwasher, it helps to put dishes in the best position for cleaning. Load all dirty dishes so they’re separated and facing the center, and always put plastic items on the top rack of the dishwasher. You can begin by placing large platters, cookie sheets, baking dishes, and pans around the perimeter of the bottom drawer. Next, add your plates. Stagger large dinner plates and smaller salad plates to give each dish more exposure. Set large and medium-size bowls in the remaining space in a slanted or completely downward position for optimal cleaning. Place dirty silverware in the cutlery container.
To organize the top drawer, line downward-facing glasses and mugs along the outer edges. Add bowls and extra-small saucers to the center section, placing each on a slant to create extra space. As a rule, the bottom drawer of your dishwasher is exposed to more heat than the top, so place plastic items on the higher drawer to avoid melting and warping. Gently nest stemware along the left-hand side—many dishwashers feature a protective holder for these items. Be sure to check the height of your stemware before closing the drawer to avoid broken glass!
In the small pockets of space between your top-drawer dishes, lay long, slender items like tongs and spatulas. Last, be sure no items block the sprayer arms, which can prevent water from reaching all of your dishes.
How do I ensure my dishes dry properly in the dishwasher?
Use a rinse aid, which is designed to ensure dishes dry properly in your dishwasher. Cascade Rinse Aid is specifically formulated to give you outstanding spot and film protection along with amazing shine. Our rinse aid helps to rinse away food particles and residues that can cause spots on dishes. Load the dishwasher so that all items are properly tilted for good drainage. Avoid nesting of dishes and silverware by staggering shapes and sizes and placing utensil handles both upward and downward. If available, use the "heat dry" option.
