I tried this product because I’m trying to go green, the dishes came out dirty greasy. I had to wash them by hand and run the dishwasher again. Not worth the money if I have to use 2 tabs and all that extra time to get my dishes clean. I will throw these out and try another brand [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

We'd hope to put the extra sparkle back in your dishes after the first wash, so we're sorry to hear about your recent Cascade clean. We do want to share that dishwasher detergents are formulated to provide the best cleaning possible, however, we do know that hard water and other factors may sometimes have an effect on our cleaning performance. Dishes coming out of the wash cycle still dirty could mean the water isn't hot enough - at least 120F/49C (run kitchen sink hot water before starting dishwasher); water pressure is too low (run solo, no shower, washing machine, etc); dishwasher sprayer arms are blocked; cycle isn't long enough; water softener not working properly; or leaked rinse aid. For the strongest fight against tough stains, we recommend using our Cascade Platinum ActionPacs™, which provide 10X the cleaning power. If you'd like to say goodbye to pesky dirt and grease once and for all, please give us a call at (800) 765-5516.
I used it for washing and sanitizing canning jars before canning applesauce. I opened up the dishwasher to check on the process of the wash cycle and found the whole basin covered with thick suds. I’ve never seen a dishwasher detergent do that before. The smell is obnoxious and overpowered the smell of applesauce. Not impressed .

We always hope for a clean that leaves nothing behind, so we're sorry to hear about your recent dishwashing experience. Since rinse-aid can cause excessive foaming, be sure to check your dispenser to see if any liquid may have leaked out. Also, if you have the option to adjust your rinse-aid dispenser, we suggest doing so according to your dishwasher's manual. Other causes of excessive sudsing include the dishwasher not filling completely, the door gasket not sealing the door properly, and the dishwasher not being level. For the best results, make sure the water in your dishwasher is at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit (49 degrees Celsius) so suds can be dissolved completely. To make the water as hot as possible, run hot water at the kitchen sink before you start the dishwasher. If possible, run the dishwasher when no other appliance is using water (shower, washing machine, and so on). These tips should do just the trick for you, but we can always be reached at (800) 765-5516 for any future questions, comments, or concerns.
I’m a Cascade person, I’ve tried other brands and just go back. I typically like the liquids for my dishwasher and stay away from pods. But when I moved into my new house I grabbed a small pack of these because, honestly, I was drawn to the packaging. I liked that for awhile I could pop these into the dishwasher instead of tearing through boxes to find my bottle of Cascade. And I was shocked at how much I loved them. They not only clean my dishes and leave my machine clean, but they completely dissolve. I also seem to need less rinse aid and don’t keep my dishwasher filled up on that anymore.
I was happy to find this eco-friendly product at a great price compared to other earth friendly products & I’m sure this product will meet expectations. First issue is quantity, only available in 16 actionpacs which demands multiple packages. The other issue is the packaging - it can’t be recycled & since I need to buy multiple packages, I throw away more. Please use compostable or recyclable pkg.

We're always working to make our products and packaging the best they can be, so rest assured we're sharing your feedback with the rest of our team.
I've been a Cascade user for many years and was excited when I saw this new product. I was extremely happy to use it and see that it cleaned my dishes even better than before. No rinsing required and got stuck on food off. It also smells so fresh and clean! Love it.
I recently partnered with Cascade to try out their new Cascade Pure Essentials action pacs. I absolutely love the product!! It left my dishes nice and clean and I love that I can feel good about using this product! The scent was just lovely too! The Cascade Pure Essentials will be my new dishwasher cleaner from now on!
