I can remember so many years of lugging the large size dishwasher detergent home from the grocery store. It was heavy, and also messy, when I poured it into the dispenser. (Granules were always falling on the kitchen floor.) I was so excited to find Cascade All In 1 ActionPacs! These small pacs do everything. There is no reason for pre-washing, as they clean thoroughly, and rinse. They're amazing.
My favorite scent is Citrus Breeze. These action pacs combine Cascade with Shine Shield, and Dawn dish-washing detergent. Shine Shield helps to stop that cloudy film that we are all familiar with, that is particularly noticeable on glassware. And the Dawn helps to cut the grease. You only need one pouch per dishwasher load. This was a bag with 20 pouches.
Another thing I noticed is that the dishwasher also smells clean, when the cycle is over. It's so simple just to put a pac in the dispenser, and let the wash begin!
Cascade ActionPacs are easy to store. They don't take up nearly as much room, as those old fashioned powder dishwasher detergents did. I love this product for the convenience and effectiveness.
