Recently I was sent a kit to take part if the Cascade 24 hour challenge.  I got Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs, and baking dish.  My task was to make blueberry cobbler (you mean I “have to make cobbler?  I’m so into this review already)  and then leave the dish on the counter for 24 hours (I confess here that part’s not hard either around this place).  After leaving it out stick it straight into the dishwasher without rinsing.

Okay the last part was a big breath holding moment for me.  We have a funky dishwasher that is really dish drawers and well putting anything like this in there without pre-scrubbing isn’t a grand idea (that’s another review for another day).  I opened the dishwasher expecting to see a dish pretty similar to the one I put in, but was in shock to see a white sparkling baking dish.   This is just my first load with Cascade Action Pacs and might be a bit to early to say this, but I think the might help me to restore my relationship with my dishwasher.

Want a Chance to love your dishwasher again?

I have a $25 Walmart giftcard courtesy of Procter & Gamble for one reader to go and try out Cascade Action Pacs for themselves.  To enter leave a comment with how many loads of dishes you run a week.

    • Miriam Scogin

      I run 3 loads a week.

    • Tonya

      One to two loads per week, so I always pre-rinse b/c I’m convinced that the dishes won’t clean up after 3 or 4 days of sitting in the dishwasher – plus I don’t want to invite in any of the creepy crawlies.

    • Anonymous

      my husband uese the dishwasher about once a week. I hate to have to wash off dishes the put them in there so I do it all by hand. If I have to wash anyway .

    • Jen

      I run about a load a day so I guess that would be 7 a week!

      • Beth

        With our family of 5, I run the dishwasher 1-2 times a day – so 7-14 times a week. I would love the giftcard to try out the Cascade product! I’m intrigued to see if a really dirty dish would be as spotless in my dishwasher as it was in yours… :-) Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

    • Megan

      I have to say that I run dishes about every other day

    • Jackie G

      I do at least 8 loads a week…

    • Mary Ellen

      5-7 loads a week, seriously.

    • miatd

      maybe once a week if that…i love how the dishes look when handwashing them and i never get that using the dishwasher so this would be a great opportunity to try a new product and perhaps free us some time using my dishwasher again

    • helenetremblay

      I run an average of 7 loads a week.

    • Sav87

      I usually run between 5 and 7 loads of dishes per week.

      I do one every day, so 7!!

    • Ellie

      I run about 3 loads of dishes a week.

    • Tessy

      2-3 times a week

    • Bethiepoo

    • Libby Salvador

      I would like to try this challenge b/c I always go back and forth with liquid and the dishwasher pacs. I run my dishwasher 3-4 tx a week.

    • Janet

      Usually 3 loads a week

    • littleduncan007

      I try to be efficient & run my dishwasher every other day (4 times a week), but I must confess, I'm still old school & rinse/scrub all of my dishes before I put them in the dishwasher:)

    • Amy

      I run about 5 loads of dishes each week!

    • deborahelaine

    • JennyU

      I only use Cascade Action Pacs, have been for a couple years. I go through 8 a week, 2x on Sunday, once every other day. Why hand wash when these do a much more efficient job?

    • Maehen

      Four to Five loads a week

      Wow, sounds like a great product! I run my dishwasher at least 7 times a week.

    • Brandi

      We run it 3-4 times a week, if I'm good and actually cook. Less if we eat out. I've used these little packs and really like them!

    • courtney_80

      we run about 4 loads of dishes each week. i'm not in love with my dishwasher, either. maybe these would improve its function.

    • vgwagoner

      5-7 loads a week and am ashamed to say that many times I have curdled milk in the sippys or 2+ day old plastic ware containers I put in.

    • As a single gal, I run it twice a week BUT I am not into dishpan hands so if things have a bit of leftovers on them, in the dishwasher they go and hope for the best! :)

    • DKelleycoupons

      We run about 5-6 loads each week. Crazy number I know but that's what happens when you cook and eat at home vs going out to dinner.

    • tiffany1119

      I run it at least once a day so 7 for me!

    • reedandshannon

    • Theresa

      We do 5 loads a week.

    • Samantha

      We run the diswasher every day and sometimes even twice a day, depending on how many pans we have to wash. To be able to just put them in without prewashing would be great!

    • Sara

      4 loads a week at a minimum!

    • Cheryl

      I run my dishwasher every other day. It's a “vintage” 1982 model and we can't afford another right now, so I'd LOVE to a better wash!

    • farcoup

      I run about 9 loads of dishes per week and that's just a family of 4!!!

    • allyg24

      i run it 7 – 10 times a week.

    • GoodHusband

      We have a large family here too.. atleast 20 loads a week… The off brand never seems
      to get things squeaky clean.. So we rewash many plastic items…

    • mandy

      Usually 4 or 5 times a week.

    • Heather

      We typically run 3 sometimes 4 loads a week. I have to cook a lot because my husband works 24 hour shifts for the fire department and ambulance service. It isn't uncommon for him to be gone 48 hours in a row and I make him meals to take so he doesn't have to eat out.

    • Natalie559

      2-3

    • Kimberly

      I have to do a load of dishes every day – if not two loads a day! We have eight people for dinner every night and no one but me cleans up! I'm tired of having to pre-scrub or rewash dishes – I hope the action pacs work for me like they did for you!

    • Emily

      We probably run ours 6 times which in my opinion is way too much for 2 adults and a toddler!

    • dawnhm

      I run 5 o5 6 loads a week.

    • peysmom

      Usually 8-10 times a week.

    • irisfaith

      I run it 1 or 2 times each week. We are not good rinsers, and dishes often sit in there for 3 or 4 days before they get washed. They usually come out cruddy. We know its our own fault.

    • amanda

      I Run at least 2 a day, more on the weekend

    • Susan

    • couponkelly75

      6 times a week

    • dianecatherine

      2 adults and 2 kids here. We run it 6-7 times a week which I think is too much. But, we eat all our meals at home, so I guess that's why.

      I have 4-5 people eating here every day so we run the diswasher 5-7 times each week!

    • gabrielmorris

      Usually every day-7 times a week!

    • Rebecca

      Ours is run at least twice a day, between reg dishes for 5 and bottles etc for the little one…so our total is 14(minimum) for the week. That's a lot of detergent!

    • Jennifer Meyer

      I take care of five kids a day and usually have family over for dinner 3x a week. We run our dishwasher usually once a day. Maybe twice on the days we have family dinners!

    • Cindy

    • Michelle

      i usually do about 3 loads per week but PACKED loads!

    • BirminghamBrian

      We typically do 2-3 loads per week.

    • angelgdh

      I think I do at least 7, sometimes 9 or 10! Gracious! LOL!

    • sbdugger

      We are a large family and homeschool, so we are home for all 3 meals everyday (plus assorted snacks). Our dishwasher has to be run at least 3 times a day, sometimes 4 or 5. Even with that I still have some dishes that have to be done by hand. I would say we average 25-30 loads in the dishwasher per week. My dishwasher doesn't like dishes that haven't been pre-rinsed, so I would be very interested to see what the Cascade Action paks actually do on non-pre-rinsed dishes.

    • Amanda

      I run a load of dishes at least 1 time a day, So that would make for 7 loads a week. My son learned about recycle last year in school, so ever since then, we recycle or reuse everything. which causes alot of dirty dishes. no more on use cups or plates in this house

    • Taylor

      My husband and I only run our dishwasher about 4 times a week. I would love to try these amazing Action Pacs!

    • cyoung

      We usually run it 3-4 times a week. We're in Nashville and were without power over the weekend and now we're under a mandatory water conservation order so I haven't been able to run it since last Saturday. It's making me crazy!! (but I'm just thankful to still have a house and dishwasher)

    • SelenaDJ

      We (I say we because my thirteen and nine year old are responsible enough to help out) run our dishwasher about four to five times a week.

    • Jeanette

      5 or 6 for 2 adults and 2 teenagers

    • mdawnrose

      I have 7 children and run 14 loads per week(unless I buy paper plates BOGO w/ Qs)!! Would love some free Cascade!!!!

      I have 2 kids so our dishwasher runs constantly. We usually run our dishwasher anywhere form 4-6 times a week.

    • Deborah

      Two very busy professionals a few loads of very dirty dishes. I love to cook and work too many hours. So…I cook, then don't clean. Two days later, I run the dishwasher twice to get all the stuff off the dishes, then go back and scrape off what doesn't come off. I hate….hate….HATE…pre rinsing dishes. Yucky water sitting around in dishes and pots are gross!

    • crystalyoung1022

    • shannonrdh

      We usually run our dishwasher once or twice per week so the caked on food is, well, “extra caked-on” :) Sometimes our dishes don't come out clean. I'd love to give these a try and see if they meet up to the challenge!

    • kwaters70

      Our dishwasher runs every night after supper and also midday on the weekends. Some days during the week, we have to run a middle of the day load also. So, I'd say we run at least 13 a week.
      We have a household of 7 so the dishwasher is definitely my friend.

    • janet5631

      There are 8 people in this house… and I tend to run the dishwasher at night and then reload it again and run it first thing in the morning daily!

    • amyfurlong

      I'm a huge fan of the Cascade action packs. They are fantastic! Pick me!

    • Dawn

      We run at least 9 per week because we cook 3x a day. I currently use the Cascade liquid but have been hesitant to use the Gel Pacs because of a bad experience many years ago. I would love to try it again!

    • Shellie Morrow

      We do at least one load a day.

    • tracibynum

      We are a continuously running family of four that LOVE to eat good ol' Southern food. My oldest son wants to be a chef one day and my husband and I both love cooking. There are ALWAYS dishes to wash! Our dishwasher runs 7 days a week.

      As well, I'm very blessed to have a full kitchen at the office. I cook at least three times a week, along with snacking and breakfast dishes. I run the dishwasher 5 days a week here!

      12 times per week, I LOVE DISHWASHERS!!!

    • Rebecca

      I run mine about 9-10X per week. I feel bad about it sometimes, since there are only 4 of us, but my house feels so much cleaner when everything is clean and put away. I would love to try them if they're as good as you say they are. I love cascade, anyway, and only buy the other brands when they're FREE.

    • jodiek

      We run our dishwasher about 10-14 times a week. I love to cook and cooking at home and eating on “real” plates is a great way to save money and be healthier and earth friendly…

    • bravo375

      I run the dishwasher everyday! Since I cook three meals a day, the dishes, pots and pans, add up fast for a family of four!

    • avageorgia

      I run my dishwasher about 4 x's per week. I always pre-rinse, and sometimes pre-wash b4 putting them in.Don't trust it enough!

    • Addie

      6-7 loads a week.

    • Rebekah

      We tend to run the dishwasher everyday twice a day! Sometimes we even had a third load! So you could say the dishwasher is our best friend :)

    • Jana Lee

      We run our dishwasher 4 to 5 times per week.

    • yelik01

      My family runs our newly purchased dishwasher once a day. I have tried the powder detergent but it never seems to work for me so i purchased some cascade pacs that were pink for breast cancer it was a double good buy it turns out i love these pacs much better they work great and would love to purchase much more in the future free is always great!

    • We are a very busy house and we run 2 loads a day so that would be 14 loads in a week. Now the whole rinse off the dishes is one of the biggest arguments my husband and i have. He says there is no need I say you have to. So when he doesnt rinse them I am usually opening the dishwasher showing him stuck on oatmeal or mac and cheese. So having something where you did not have to rinse would not only make life easier but would finish a squabble we have been having for years.

    • I typically run it once a day, and sometimes twice a day on Saturday or Sunday. We fill it up all day long, and I run it at bedtime. Unload the next morning and start again!

    • melissa

      I run the dishwasher 2-3 times a week.

      I run my dishwasher daily. I am amazed at how many sippie cups we go through in one day around here!

    • Rachel

      I've never really stopped to notice but I think I run about 3 loads a week.

    • beckyr

      8-9 loads. Sometimes it's almost easier to use paper plates though!

    • monice

      At least once a day, sometimes 3 times on clean out the fridge day – so maybe 10 max. Never put a dirty dish in thedishwasher (and I just got a new one). Might have to give them a try even if I don't win :)

    • TOO many to count!! I love my dishwasher, my husband and I went 4 years without one. When we redid our kitchen, the dishwasher was first in line to be top knotch!!!

    • Jessica529

      We run our dishwasher about 10 times per week.

    • Gail

      I have always gone for the cheaper brands for dishwashing detergent and I admit I have to prerinse and sometimes rewash. I have an older dishwasher that runs at least 11 loads a week. I would love to try this….. It sounds like it may be worth the money and save me time and the yuck factor of rewashing. Gail

    • Diane

      Pick me! Pick me! We run 1 load per day and we LOVE Cascade Action Pacs. I also soak my son's white baseball pants in them and they always come out looking brand new:)

    • aaronsgirl77

      I run the dishwasher about 3-4 times per week.

    • Molliec

      We run ours once a day. We live in an older apartment complex and I have a love hate relationship with our dishwasher. While I am thankful to have one, somedays it is more trouble than it is worth. I would love to see if these actionpacks change that!

    • Mall0ry1

      About 7 times per week.

    • Courtney

      Once a day=too much!

    • shanhillga

      Wow, I feel like I am always unloading the dishwasher! I run mine a minimum of once a day. I would love to try Cascade Action Pacs to hopefully save time with pre-washing!

    • Denise B

      Twice a day for us!! I considered having two dishwashers installed when we had our home built, but my husband said it was ridiculous!! :S WE R BLESSED TO HAVE SO MANY MOUTHS TO FEED & DISHES TO WASH!! :D

      I run about 3 loads a week and there are only three people in the house!!!

    • adb3936

      With a newborn baby and lots of bottles and accessories to clean, we run our dishwasher at least once per day.

    • An Cope

      I do 6 loads a week. And you are right about Cascade Action Pacs…I think I will only switch to another brand if they are free.

    • sara Hanle

      1 load every 2 days…

    • Sarah

      I actually don't use my dishwasher at all!!! I know, people think I'm crazy, but I've never had a good exeperience with them. I don't feel it washes my dishes as good as I can….has always left spots or food and why wash your dishes before washing them again??? Never made any sense to me?? So….I do dishes by hand pretty much every day. :(

    • jennifermcgrathbutler

      i run our dishwasher about 4 times a week…it's only my boyfriend & i living there; our family & friends do looove to come over for my yummy southern cooking, though! (which is where all the dirty dishes come from) everyone offers to wash my dishes, but i never let them, i think i'm a little too ocd to be able to go with that…and i do the whole “wash” pre-rinse thingie, too…would love to “restore my relationship with my dishwasher”!

    • Elizabeth

      I do 3 to 4 loads a week.

    • julie

      At least once a day.

    • Amy_Q

      I run the dishwasher almost every night, so that's about 6-7 times per week. I load it right before bed and then start it up and head to bed. I have the hardest time not “pre-washing” my dishes. My Mama always did it, and so I do it too. Would love to be able to just throw them in there and let 'em go!

    • tina0381

      I pre-rinse, my husband doesn't. So, if I've loaded the dishwasher, we run it once a day. If my husband has loaded all or part of it, we usually end up running it again… lending to a possible 14 times per week! (Though I dare say, a week when he has placed dishes in the dishwasher EVERYDAY is a far stretch!) =)

    • abryant

      We run our dishwaser twice a day most days. I have messy people at my house!

    • Anna

      I would love to try them! I run about 15 loads a week (alot of cooking and alot of kids!) I don't have the best dishwasher so this might just be the thing for a busy working mom like me!!!!

    • irmolees

      We run our dishwasher daily! It is always full of small Target bowls used for snacks, small cups from milk, choc milk, Koolaid, etc throughout the day and the never ending cycle of utensils and cookware or bakeware I don't HAVE to wash by hand! Families of 5 and more – especially 3 growing boys who seem to eat ALL the time .. and SNACK all the time too .. LOTS of dirty dishes! Would LOVE to try this!!

    • It's just my husband and I but we still manage to run around 4-5 loads a week. I would love to try these out!

    • Dee

      2-3 times a week

    • mhinkle

      I do about 3 loads a week and I usually wash the really tough stuff by hand. Maybe I should change.

    • Lyne

      7-9! We dirty up a lotta dishes!

    • LaDonna

      I run about 9-11 loads a week.

    • Kim

      With 5 kids ranging from 5 mths. to 14 yrs. I do alot of dishes. I run apprx. 10 loads per week.

    • PrizedPrices

      I average 1.5 loads a day!

    • wes

      I try to get the most bang fo my buck so I run 1 full load per day. Sometimes I have to run it twice in a day so I would say 7-8 times per week.

    • Lori B.

      I run at least 1 load per day. Somedays 2 if we have friends over or on the weekends when the whole family is home all day.

    • Mom2teenagers

      We run about 4 loads a week. Looking forward to trying these new pacs.

    • gamego71

      I do about 5 loads a week typically

    • Angela

      7 days a week

    • gisellev

      I average about 7-8 loads a week.

    • Kristen

      7 times a week!

    • drcmetzger

      I feel the same way about my dishwasher! I only do 1 load a day/ 7 a week on average because I tend to wash a lot of items by hand. The cobbler pan I would NEVER put in the dishwasher. I would definately wash that by hand. I would be completely shocked to see any thing like that come out clean. It would be nice to find out if I can stop washing all those baking dishes by hand! Save more time to be with the kids at night and save my hands! Thanks.

    • lorrainedanielson

      I would love to win this prize because with 5 kids, I run our dishwasher at least twice a day – sometimes 3! This would really help.

    • adriandg

      I do a load a week and would love the chance to try this new product out!

    • 5dkmom

      We run it 10-12 times a week normally, more in the summer when everyone's home.

    • Kristin Stowell

      I've worked really hard to get our dishwasher working only part-time now. We (all the kids) take turns hand washing what we can to save water. BUT the pots and pans that go into the dishwasher are pretty wicked. I like to cook from scratch and I make a big mess. Now that Nashville is trying to cut water use in half, I'd love to get my once-a-week cycle's worth!!

    • Alzina

      I run my dishwasher a minimum of 10 times a week. I can't imagine not pre-washing my dishes before I load them into the dishwasher.

    • That's amazing….I love to hear real stories like that on products from people I trust! I do a load of dishes in the dishwasher every day or every other day.

    • melissa

      4-5 loads a week

    • robinwiser

      I run my dishwasher atleast once a day, sometimes twice on the weekends. So, I do 7-8 loads a week. I would love not to have to scrub my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher.

    • katherinestreetman

      I run the dishwasher morning and night, so about 14 times a week!!

    • Probably 6 a week. We have a tiny apartment with a tiny sink and tiny dishwasher. The days I don't run it its because I utilized the counter space around the sink to store dirty dishes until I regained my motivation. :0) And I never pre-wash so some things stay in their for a few cycles.

    • Jen

      We run about 4 to 5 loads a week. Should run it more often , but I stuff as much in there as I can!

    • dblase

      Three times a week, and my dishwasher and I could use some bonding, too.

    • I do 7-9 loads of dishes a week. We just moved and installed a new dishwaher. It doesnt seem as good as the used portable diswasher we had in the old house so maybe this soap will make the difference!

    • Deediamond

      I do a load a day everyday and wash big bowles and pans myself.

    • laureek

      I run a load a day,…so 7 in a week!

    • jennifer_b3

      7 loads/wk. I run a full load of dishes generally once a day. If I don't have a full load on one day I end up having to do 2 loads the next day but it averages out to 1 load/day, 7 loads/wk.

    • Brianne

      I have a baby, so we are running the washer every day!

    • Nikki

      I haven't found a good enough dishwasher product to run my dishwasher that much. They all leave spots, or don't get all the food off, so I run my dishwasher only 2xper week, I will wash them by hand because I know I will get the food off.

    • Kristie

      We run 7 loads a week, 1 load per evening!

    • cruisingmom

      I do about 9 loads a week. With a five month old and a four year old I am doing laundry or dishes at all times.

    • RachelML

      I run a load at least once a day…oy!

    • Lisa M

      At least once a day. With 4 kids I could do a full dishwasher a day of just glasses and cereal bowls!

    • Robin

      I just got a sample pack in the P&G sampler! I run the dishwasher everyday so I'm not going to rinse the dishes and try it out today.

    • keithskelly

      Normally 5-6 times per week!

    • Sarah Star

      I probably run 10 loads a week.

    • uscjayme

      We run 6-10 loads a week. We also wash most of the boys small toys in there and they take up space!

    • Christin

      We recently bought a house with a dishwasher (previously I did not have one). When I used it for the first time, I was so excited about seeing sparkling dishes with no work–however, I was wrong (and my dishwasher is brand new!!). I now only run about 2 loads a week, because I wash many things by hand to get them clean. I would love to see if this works!!

    • Nina

      7 loads per week

    • heather

      I probably run our dishwasher 5 times a week. But, we have a baby on the way, so I expect that number to increase!! Really hope I win this one.

    • Tonya Caywood

      I love to cook first of all and trying a new type of Casade is even better. We use the liquid now and know I can't NOT rinse with it. Would love to try this challenge too!! Thanks.

      • Tonya Caywood

        And I do 7-8 loads a week!!!!

    • crickola

      Generally about 4 or 5 times a week. When we have events to cook for , etc. of course it's more.

    • Erin

      Usually 4 loads a week does it for my household

    • LilKim00033

      OOooo! Sounds like I NEED THESE! I do 3-4 loads a week.

    • Kristi

      At least 4 times a week. We are so busy dishes usually sit before they get put in the dishwasher so this would be great to try!

    • Momlovesdeals

      I run the dishwasher once a day.

    • dwaynejenn46

      I have 6 people to feed and LOVE to cook, so I do about 1-3 loads a day…14 a week on average.

    • Kristy Lentz

      WOW! I am always so skeptical when I see THOSE types of commercials! I would love to try these out, and with 2 teens and 2 toddlers, well I do at least 2 loads of dishes a day!

    • johannadavenport

      I run 2 loads a day. I have a family of 5 and we go through a ton of dishes.

    • Anonymous

      Living in Pasco county our water bills are high, so I try not to wash more than once a week. I love cascade and don’t have to waste water rinsing before loading!

    • stacydinello

      We wash between 7-10 loads in the dishwasher a week… with some handwashing along the way…

    • Denen Kimbrell

      I use these a lot.I rarely prerinse. They always do a great job. I do about 7 loads a week..

    • Usually 3 or 4 loads of dishes a week for me.

    • shannonmullins

      I usually run at LEAST one load of dishes per day, so weekly I'd say 9-10 loads.

    • Mary

      With 4 kids and a full time job, i do not have time to wash dishes daily. So, I run my dishwasher quite often during the week, and i am always looking for something that will give that spot free shine.

    • christy

      4-5 times a week

    • taradelong

      I run at least once a week. Sometimes on the weekends if we have people over for cookouts I have to run 2 times a day.
      Thanks for the chance to win.

    • angelleeson

      I run the dishwasher every other day.

    • Ryan

      It's hard to say how many loads get done a week. On a normal week, it would be around 14 if my oldest or I are the ones doing the dishes. If it's my younger daughter she runs it every time she empties the sink (good and bad). lol My 22 month old thinks it should be running all the time. He helps himself to pushing the buttons and getting it started whether there is anything in it or not.

    • Amanda Bailey

      I usually run about two loads during week days and twice on the weekend. So that is 12 loads total.

    • kpatrick0712

      I do a minimum of 7 loads a week, and sometimes 2 loads a day. It averages to about 10 a week. I am with you on the pre-rinsing and the dinosaur dishwasher. Hmm……would like to try those.

    • peanutbutterandjelly

      We run between 5 to 10 a week.

    • anothercog

      WOW I would love to try this, I am hating my dishwasher right now… we run an average of 12 loads of dishes a week. sigh.

    • Trish

      We run the dishwasher at least once a day, usually twice. I have 9 homeschooled kids which means they are home messing up the kitchen all day, everyday! I wish Cascade would make an environmentally friendly version of the ActionPacks, is there any info on the package that would lead you to believe this is the case already?

    • Michelle

      I usually do aout 2 loads a week and wash everything else by hand :) I would love to try these!

    • Tabitha

      I do 4 loads a week when my husband is out of town (we eat a lot of leftovers), and probably 7 times a week when he's home.

    • Susanne

      I have 4 children (two of which are with me all day) and I cook all of our food from stratch due to food allergies!! So, I do 3 loads of dishes per day which would be 21 loads a week!!

    • sbrooks722

      Usually once a day

    • kim4

      14 loads per week

    • Shannon m

      That is amazing, we have a dishwasher where we shouldn't have to pre wash everything but we do. I used to use Cascade but switched to a different brand for financial reasons. I will try this again. We run our dishwasher everyday
      Thanks for the info

    • deniseadmire

      I run about 7 loads of dishes a week. I love that you were able to leave your blue berry cobbler alone for a whole day. That will be a challenge in itself here!!

    • Beth

      I do 2 loads a week!

    • Dy

      I wash around 10 loads a week-I wish my machine was bigger!!!

    • KLlovesQs

      Usually I run 2-3 loads a week. I'm one who always thoroughly rinse my dishes first b/c I'm too afraid they won't come out clean. I'd love to give this product a try!

    • We Run 2-3 Loads a week
      Love to cook pasta and chicken dishes and cleaning sometimes can be a task

    • Kim

      I do about 2 loads a day, so I'd say about 14 loads in a week.

    • Linzi

      Around 5 loads per week!

    • couponingprincess

      we run at least 2 a day most days. so 10-14 loads. Wow that seems like a lot when it is in writing!!

    • rmjoys

      I do at least 5 loads a week, sometimes more than one a day.

    • GAJulie

      I run about 4 to 5 loads a week.

    • meghanld

      Usually 3 loads per week – I have two pots that currently would benefit from this! :D

    • becky

      My family of 3 does 5 to 6 loads per week.

    • Chris Walker

      There are just 2 of us in our household, but with the amt of dishes we use, u would think there were 12! We usually run our dishwasher about 1 time a day, which is about 7 times a week. Not to mention we still have a counter full even when that's running!

    • julie1973

      That is something I am willing to try. I have 2 little ones and do a lot of cooking. And even though I wash daily if I can there have been days where that is not on the “To Do” list.

      If there is something that would make i easier and do a good job then I am all about it.

    • amberburr

      I have 5 people in my family, by the dishes that I do each day, you would think I have 20 people living with me. I do about 4-5 loads of dishes a DAY. So thats about 30 loads a WEEK, Nothing I have tried gets them as clean as I would like them to get, always something stuck on, on a weird film, whats the point of a dishwasher if I pretty much have to wash them after I get them out of the dishwasher? I dont get it! Slowly becoming a betty-crocker, housewife, and boy, cna I make some messes, thanks for taking me into consideration

    • amytrunnell

      Hey, I run my dishwasher 8 times a week. I have an in-home daycare, so clean cups, bottles, bowls & spoons are important to me.

    • Abbie

      I would guess 7-9 loads a week. Usually it's 1 load a day, but when I do a big housecleaning and collect all the sippy cups that end up hiding under beds and couches, that's usually another load. ;)

    • elaineh6

      4 to 5 loads a week

    • I run the dishwasher once a day. Any dishes beyond that I try to do by hand. I would LOVE to try these, as I do a “pre-scrub” on my dishes too, which sometimes makes me think it's pointless to even run the dang thing!!

    • cak0937

      I do at least 7…

    • Mika

      I run the dishwasher about once a day, which would be 7 times a week. Here's hoping I win!

    • Kristin

      7 loads a week here at our house…sometimes 6 if I can squeeze it all in!

    • Joanna

      I'm excited about the cobbler pan! I don't pre-wash my dishes because if I wanted to rinse them all first, I'd just wash them all by hand! My hubbie is appalled at the thought of not pre-washing! I just tell him he's welcome to do it his way if he's going to do them! :-) With 5 kids, we wash 7-9 loads of dishes a week, at least one a day, unless things were extra rough and by not pre-washing – have to do them again!!! :-) Thanks for the opportunity to try the gel-pacs!

    • Kaboose621

      I usually do one load every other day, so that's about 3-4 loads a week. I, too, have a cruddy dishwasher and lately the glass items come out SUPER cloudy. If this works, I'd buy it for sure!!

    • Modern Mia

      I run my dishwasher on average 10 times per week.

    • SavingsPro

      About 10 loads a week. Dishwashers are a great! Maybe these Cascade gel packs will turn them in your best helper.

    • alli michael

      I run my dishwasher daily. When I really make a mess, I run it twice a day! On average I run it 7 times a week.

    • taradelong

      I run once a day. Sometimes on the weekends if we have to people over for cookouts I have to run it 2 times that day. Thanks for the chance to win.

    • JESS

      I run 2 loads a day, seven days a week. More if we have family and friends over to our home. I have a very disfunctional realtionship with my dishwasher as well! I think my washer thinks it is really a dish rinser! I always have to go back through and post wash several items! I have tried talking to my dishwasher about this problem we are having, i've event threatened to replace it. However, i think my dishwasher knows this is only a threat due to the economy! This new Cascade might not only convince my dishwasher of it's true duties it may save me from asking for a dishwasher for mothers day! Then maybe I can think of something nicer for mothers day!

    • Usually we run it at least 7 times a week- unless there is a great sale and coupon on paper plates! :) I also have a love/hate relationship with my dishwasher and always have to pre-rinse. If these really work, it would be amazing! I'd love to try them out!

    • Julie

      5-7 loads of dishes per week

    • Paula

      I run the dishwasher an average of once every other day, sometimes once a day.

    • connieb03

      This is awesome!!!! Thanks!

    • Lori Byrd

      I run about 9 loads a week! My dishawasher is old and cheap and I worry that my childrens' cups are not getting as clean as they should be. I wash everything that will fit into my dishwasher b/c I have severe eczema on my hands and cannot hand wash dishes. I would love to take the challenge!

    • Laura

      I run 3-4 loads a week, plus dishes by hand. All that for only 2 people!

    • cherith

      at least once a day; some days twice

    • Stefanie

      I run 4-5 loads of dishes a week!

    • tiffanym1969

      I run my dishwasher usually 1 time a day but lately it has been 2 times. Once in the morning and once in the evening. Needless to say I have a large family.

    • AngelineCM

      We run dishes at lest once everyday, so anywhere from 5-7 loads a week. I already use Cascade, but I use the powder and have not tried the Action Pacs, but would like to.

    • Yanina

      We run 4-5 loads a week

    • singleymom

      Dishes? Ha! I run no loads because that is one task that my wonderful husband has taken over completely!!! However, as much as I love him, I would LOVE <3 for him to receive this wonderful gift card for the new Cascade!!!!

    • Tina

      We have twin toddlers and a 7 year old and we run our dishwasher once a day during the week and twice a day on the weekends, so that is 9 times a week!! We could definitely use dishwasher packs!!

    • teresacurrey

      I do 7 loads a week – one every day.

    • blondieholmes

      4-5 loads for our household.

    • Beenerc

      I run my twice a day. I cook breakfast and dinner for my family every day and I can't stand to see the dishes in the sink! So….that makes 14 times! Oy vay!

    • shannabmc

      I would say usually about 6-8 loads a week.

    • Kristen

      With a three year old and a 9 month old, we do at least two loads a day because of bottles and cups. It's a never ending cycle of dishes!! I would love to try this because I always scrub everything before putting it in the dishwasher.

    • Valerie

      7 days a week for a homeschooling family of 4. Probably more if I did not do some dishes by hand.

    • Melissa

      I run the dishwasher at least once a day. Sometimes, on the weekends especially, I have to run it twice. On top of that, I wash all my pots and pans by hand, so that is only the plates, glasses, bowls, et cetera.

    • Lori

      About 5-6 times a week we run the dishwasher. :)

    • Anna

      probably 14. I bake a lot during the week.

    • Jozette

      My family and I run 2 loads a week :)

    • Jennifer

      I'm going to estimate about 5 a week. But I pack it pretty tight, which is probably why half the stuff doesn't come as clean as I would like, but it kills me to waste the water/electricity/detergent on a not-completely-full dishwash.

    • coxshelia

      One maybe 2 loads a week

    • cherylwashington

      i usually run it once a day and would love to try these!

    • tgold6

      Every day!!

    • Vicki

      I'm kinda tickled to read your post. I bought Cascade action pacs On Monday because …welll :::hanging head:::: Thats the only thing left on the shelf! I relunctantly
      bought them and used them… I have only used one pac so far and after reading this I went to look at my dishes.. Cause I ALWAYS have to redo some of the silverware <because the 12 yr old> never scrubs them…. Wahhhhlaaaaaa I am not gonna have to rewash dished again! I love this stuff already.

    • Jennifer

      I think I have dishwasher OCD – I pack in as much as I can, and rearrange everything my husband puts in, so I only have to run 2 loads per week.

    • evascoupons

      At least 7-9 loads per week

    • Christy

      I run our dishwasher about 8 times a week. I have to scrub the really dirty stuff before I run the dishwasher. It's either that or I'll have to scrub them after! Thanks for all you do!

    • 7 loads per week.

    • imacausey

      I do between 4 and 6 loads a week. I do handwash some of my larger pots and pans, and I prerinse the chunky stuff or I find it later on my glassware. :)

    • evelynjohnson

      10 loads

    • SetTheRays

      Usually 5 or 6 which is a lot for just a family of 3 :)

    • kadywood

      I run 7-8 loads a week.

    • Robin

      I am a working mom of 4 kids. My husband is a stay-at-home dad and he is usually the one loading the dishwasher and starts the load. However, I usually have to re-do the load because of the way he loads the dishes in. Can Cascade Action Pacs do something about that? Would love to give it a try. We usually do around 10-14 loads a week.

    • Ashley

      I would say we run the dishwasher at least 4 times a week.

    • berneta

      We run between 11 to 14 loads a week.

    • I run every other day… it is a stretch, but I save water and electricity by running every other day.

      I run about 8 loads a week! I love my dishwasher, but I always rinse my dishes first!

    • jojoesle

      I have a busy household with six adults and only two currently employed and every little extra would be greatly appreciated; we would love to be considered for this giveaway.

    • kimberburrell

      I ALWAYS run ours at least once and sometimes twice a day. We are a family of 5 and there's never a moment that we don't have something “dirty” in our house. I have three children under the age of 6 so I would LOVE to try these!

    • joy

      We do about 5 loads a week.

    • kristen442

      one to two times daily

    • john

      Wow! I'll have to try it. Our dishwasher sounds similar to yours. We do a load every night and many times have to wash some of the dishes again in morning.

    • shana

      6 or 7 times a week.

    • Patty Terech

      2 loads 7 days a week. Would love to try it.

    • Andrea Watts

      One a week. My dishwasher sometimes cleans and sometimes don't.

    • Nancy Smith

      I do a load of dishes per day and sometimes 2 loads a day, just depends upon what I am cooking and how many kids I am cooking for (I have 2 teenage sons with a lot of friends). Our house tends to be the gathering place but I'm cool with that ;)

    • Lisa

      I run at at least once a day… sometimes more.

    • carlybingham

      We run the dishwasher an average of 5 times a week

    • cield

      6 to 7 times a week

    • candicestoves

      I run my dishwasher at least 7-10 times per week. That's lots of dish scrubbing before the dishwasher even sees my dishes. This would be a huge time saver!

    • Paige

      6-7 per week.

    • Karrie

      I do about 5-6 a week depending on how much cooking I actually do!

    • Brandy

      I run the dishwasher once a day…so 7 times a week.

    • I do about 5 loads each week.

    • cindymccurry

      I run the dishwasher 10 or more times a week. I have a big family.

    • debrafabiszak

      We do about 9 loads a week

    • couponsyay

      I run about 10 dishwasher loads per week!

    • Laray

      7-8n loads a week

    • jenniferr

      i literally stopped using my dishwasher because i was so fed up with it not working well..i might as well hand wash if i have to pre-rinse (ie wash!) everything before i place them in the dishwasher…or wash them after they come out not clean (our dishwasher is almost 7 years old, but still?! so for our family of 5 and we do not eat out ever! i am handwashing!!!! ugh!!! i would love to open up our dishwasher again and give this a try…

    • rhughescoupons

      wow, that is impressive! I usually run the d-w every other day if I can stretch it out that long.

    • Heather J.

      My family usually does 2-3 load a week!

    • Crystal Lukas

      On average 4-6 times per week, so sometimes things just sit in there getting dried on the dishes. My wonderful husband never rinses anything. So I usually have to scrub something after the fact that its already been washed.

    • Christy

      I try not to run it more than once a day but it seems I almost have to completely wash some of my dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Looking forward to trying this to eliminate the extra work!

    • rhlos

      well my family of 3 total still makes me run the dishwasher 8-9 times per week. And then I get to rewash about half of those because I have the worst expensive dishwasher in existence!

    • sherry

      We run eight to eleven dishloads per week.

    • Jessica

      We run our dishwasher about 3 times a week. Come to think of it… I could use a new dishwasher too. :)

    • My dishwasher works overtime! I run it at least once per day, sometimes twice, depending on if we're all home…we are a family of 6. I'm looking for a product that can make our small town water not smell fishy! It's discuting to open a freshly run dishwasher and have a horrible fish smell hit you in the face! I'm hoping I can try this product and that it will remove that stinch!! Thank you

    • April

      7+ times a week

    • elizabeth

      I run it at least once / day. I NEED this. Will definitely have to try it out.

    • great_state

      3 times/week

    • rolltidemomma

      I run the dishwasher at least 5 times a week! Would love to try the Cascade Complete All-in-One Action pacs! Sounds like our dishwashers must be friends!

    • Lisa

      I run 4 or 5 loads a week.

    • rlba272

      With having a household of 8 we normally do at least two loads a day, sometimes more depending on if its a school day or weekend where we eat all 3 meals at home.

    • aimee

      At least 10. With a family of 6 that dishwasher is always on!!

    • Andrea

      3-4 times a week

    • dawn

      Usually the dishwasher gets run 10- 12 times a week.

    • gailr

      I run 7-9 times a week. Would love to try this product.

    • Jenny

      I usually run the dishwasher twice a day…5 kids + 2 adults adds up to a lot of dishes!

    • Shellie Contos

      We run at least one a day…probably 7-8/week. And I don't waste one inch of space in there – my biggest talent is packing the dishwasher full.

    • We do 7 loads of dishes per week!

    • jerrywillis

      Seven loads a week.

    • Alicia S

      I usually end up doing 3 -4 loads of dishes a week. I have a terrible dishwasher as well, you kinda need to wash the dishes before you run them in the dishwasher!! I would LOVE to try these!!

    • Susan

      1-2 loads per day! I have 6 kids (ages 1-17) and three of my daughters share the chore of unloading the dishwahser. They are always leaving dishes in to be rewashed- would love to try the pacs!

    • Mrs. Morgan

      every 2-3 days. There are just 2 of us and if after 3 days it isn't full, I run it anyway because I think they won't come clean if I don't.

    • Becca

      I've got a little one, at least 5 but up to 7

    • Amy

      I love these cascade action pacs! I decided to try them when the cascade gel I was using was leaving a white residue all over my plates. We have hard (read “chemical laden”) water in Florida, and it is difficult to get all the dishes clean. The cascade action pacs do the trick! No more dried detergent on my dishes!

      • Amy

        Oh yeah, I forgot; I run my dishwasher 7 days a week!

    • Michele

      I usually run my dishwasher once a day.

    • Donna

      With three growing boys in the house I usually run the dishwasher at least once a day.

    • Adele

      I run about 5-6 loads a week. On lighter cooking days, I can squeeze two days into one.

    • KBBest

      I typically run my dishwasher 3 times a week. In the summer, we have to wash them more often (even when we don't have a full load) because things start to smell sour- YUCK!

    • Nicole

      I do about 10-12 loads of dishes per week If the kids are out of school. When they are in school, I do about 8-10.

    • hminnesota

      I do once on weekday, twice on weekend..so total about 9.

    • jenjax8783

      Four to five dishwasher loads per week is my average.

    • Robyn

      about 18-20 times a week, family of 6, 5 of us are home all day and twins that use bottles

    • Sparky

      at least once a day! blueeeeeeeeeeeberry cobbler … YUMMY!! :)

    • mattjanet

      We run at least 5 loads per week & would love to try the action pacs!

    • Sunshine05

      I run our dishwasher 1-2x a week… we try to be frugal about this and not run it too often and waste water. When we do run it, it is cram-packed full!

    • tonya c

      On a normal week at home our dishwasher runs anywhere from 4-6 times.

    • carolinejgeer

      We run the dish washer every day. 7 days a week. Daddy, Mommy plus 6 kiddos!

    • michellemcc

      I run the dishwasher about every other day.

    • April

      That sounds amazing! We never eat out and spend most of our time in the kitchen, whipping up meals for our 3 kiddos (ages 6 and under) who all have severe food allergies. If anything could really reduce the amount of time we spend in the kitchen, I'd love to give it a try. Our dishwasher is a little finicky at times and adds stuck on food to our glasses. Ew! We run the dishwasher 7 to 9 times a week.

    • tansygirl

      Hmm, I'd have to see it to believe it–not that I'm saying you're lying or anything! I made a blackberry cobbler Sunday and stuck the dish in the dishwasher without scrubbing the remaining crust off. When the dishes were “clean,” the dish wasn't, and neither were the plastic cups and bowls. Those always give me the most trouble.

      Anyway, we do one, sometimes two loads a day, depending on if the kids are out of school or not.

    • kcreviews

      I run at least 7 loads of dishes per week. One a day. More if I have company or cook extra stuff other than breakfast and dinner. I have never been able to feel like I can put dishes straight into the dish washer. I have always rinsed them first. This would be a godsend!

    • Susan

      I run 4 to 5 loads a week.

    • lrwinfl

      Once a day

    • kellib

      I run the dishwasher about 8-10 loads a week!

    • klgacg

      I run the dishwasher 8 times a week. Once a day and twice on Sunday due to a special breakfast in the morning. I can't imagine not pre-rinsing – that would be nice!

    • kellycain

      about once a week, sometimes more, sometimes less

    • Kim

      I run my dishwasher about 7-8 times a week. More if we have company.

    • Melody

      I love my dishwasher but would love to try what you tried and see if it really works!! Pre-scrub is my first name when it comes to my dishwasher. I have a family of 4 and homeschool so we create 3 meals worth of dishes daily. I also love to bake, and try new recipes in between so….I wash on average 2 loads per day and some days as many as 4 loads. Just think if I had to hand wash them……don't think I would cook as much!!!

    • Carrie Anne Rowan

      I run about 7 loads in the dishwasher per week.

    • Linda

      We have 5 in our family, and I run the dishwasher almost every day.

    • molly

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day!

    • Mary Kate

      I run the dishwasher at least 6 times a day.

    • sheryl

      We run ours almost every day…we are a family of 4 with one toddler and one baby. Our top rack is usually full of sippy cups and bottles and our 'regular' dishes the rest of it up pretty fast!

    • rlkim1974

      I run my dishwasher at least 1 time if not 2 times on an average day and 3 – 4 times if we have guests, I am cooking for a friend or doing extra freezer cooking or baking. My dishwasher is an old one (14yrs old) and I would love to see what it could do in my dishwasher.

    • We run about 8-10 loads per week.

    • allaire

      I do atleast one load a day sometimes two with my family and the cascade action packs are so easy to use and work really well.

    • Kim

      We run one or two a week. There's only myself and my husband, and the washing is usually more necessary because we run out of dishes and not necessarily because the dishwasher is full.

    • carol payne

      I would say 15 times a week.

    • 1990cher

      Family of six so our dishwasher runs every day, on average 7 loads a week. I have a very love/hate relationship with my dishwasher. I love having one so I don't have to handwash but mine doesn't always clean as well as it should leaving me to have to handwash the dishes anyway. Argh!

    • reggie55

      Run the washer 5-6 times a week.

    • On average we run 14-16 loads a week. My 13 year old is responsible for the dishes as her payment for her cell phone (teaching responsibility). She does a great job overall but I must say I get rather frustrated when I grab a dish or siverware that has the dried on dishwasher food still on it. I would love to try the Action Pacs and I know my daughter would too! Thanks for this opportunity.

    • Barbie Tallent

      IO run the dishwasher once a day! And that's bad considering there are only 3 in the house and I do pots and pans by hand!

    • Sally

      I wash at least 3-4 loads a week.

    • Michaela

      We do 8 loads of dishes a week.

    • Abi

      I do lots of loads because I have a little baby starting solids! And bottles!! I would love to try these, Cascade is awesome!

    • Teresa

      I'd love it! I run at least 6 loads a week.

    • Lisa Cochran

      I do a load a day.

    • Lisa

      We run the dishwasher every other day – mostly because we try to hand wash certain types of dishes.

    • Melanie

      I probably run about four loads a week… sad for only two people!

    • Kimberly Morales

      I would love to try it out. With three kids, the dishwasher never stops. I run at least seven loads every week.

    • orutulsa

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day and sometimes more. I would guess I run it 10 times a week.

    • lyssibee

      5-6 times per week
      It used to be less, but now that we have groceries in our house (thanks to couponing!), we are eating in more frequently.

    • savingdeals

      I run at least one load a day. I always assumed my dishwasher was just stank, but maybe it is my choice of detergent.

    • lizz0255

      at least twice a day and then still have to handwash bottles LOL we have 5 kids and I have made eating out a thing of the past.

    • clatty321

      We have to run our dishwasher at least once a day, so at least 7 days in a week. I have no idea how we accumulate so many dirty dishes, must be all of those sippy cups.

    • Hunter

      I run 5-6 a week! Too much for just my husband and I!

    • klgacg

      I run the dishwasher 8 times a week. Once a day and twice on Sunday since I cook a special breakfast for the gang and the extra kids spending the night. No pre-rinsing? Wow, that would be nice!

    • jessica0603

      I do the dishes about 10 times a week and hardly ever pre-rinse……hahahaha! I hate to!

    • tamiami

      5-7 (too many!)

    • rhondacampbell

      7 – 10 per week. I hate rinsing before I wash, seems reduntant. However, sometimes I have to scratch off food then rewash. Would love to try.

    • Kay Sauceman

      Ok so I really know how you feel about the holding your breath part!! I have six kids and you would not know the dishes had been done sometimes. As for how many loads a week…well, we do 2 per day so at least 14….sometimes more depending on holidays and things like that. Love to try them for the sheer fact that I may not have to rewash loads! Thanks for the info!!!!

    • carayara

      Oh at least once a day, but often twice. Family of 6 that loves to cook makes a lot of dirty dishes! :)

    • Melissa

      At least 7 loads a week. Sometimes I wish I had two dishwashers… then I wouldn't have to put the dishes away before loading the dirty dishes into the second one. What's the point of putting them back in the cupboard when you're just going to take them out again an hour later?

    • Wendy

      We run it once a day at my house and my 21 month old can't wait until it is finished so he can help unload……

    • brandybates

      I two loads a day. I have 3 children at home all day and when I have to make 3 meals…it means I have lots of dishes

    • Becki Marin

      18-20 loads per week! With little ones running around, there's always dishes to do!

    • ashleymich02

      i have a family of 6 that lives in my house! (one a two year old and we also have a two year old that we babysit everyday!) so the dishes add up. we usually run it once in the afternoon and once after supper!

    • I run my dishwasher around 2 times a week. Just me and my hubby, who provides very sticky plates by leaving them on the counter top. Oh, and the dog bowls & toys too :)

    • Kristie

      We do at least one load of dishes everyday! I confess! If not clean the first time I will run them again!

    • Gabi

      My dishwasher runs about 4 times a week. Sometimes it's not very full, but I'm afraid if I wait another day the dishes won't come clean because everything is dried on. Would love to try the Action Pacs to see if that could help reduce the amount of energy we use!

    • Terri M

      We do a load a day and that's not counting the pots and pans. And sometimes, that “clean” load gets done again because my dishses did not come clean!!!!

    • Ashleigh

      At least 8 times a week. We try to always have a full dishwasher :)
      Ashleigh

    • JIMason6965

      I run the dishwasher about 5 times each week… give or take with away from home events around supper time:o)

    • Jen

      Run mine everyday! I love the Cascade Action Pacs!!!

    • We run about 5 loads a week. I always have to prerinse all our dishes. I hate it!

    • summersharp

      I think I run mine about 5-6 times a week, but nthing ever gets sparkly. This sounds great!

    • Kristi

      We run the dishwasher about 5 times per week…but I always pre-rinse. I can't imagine not having to do. I cannot stand to pull out dishes with food still stuck on them!

    • Amber

      I'm guessing at about 3-4 loads a week.

    • tjackman

      Usually one a day – 7 a week. We have very hard water and it seems that my sample of Cascade Complete works very well! Better than other things I have tried.

    • My husband loves to hold poker parties, usually 2 a week and I love to cook for them. I usually fix a meal in a crock pot for them. But I don't alwaus get to it the next day to clean it up. You guessed it, a stuck on mess. I would love to be able to throw the crock in the dishwasher and have it come out clean. Right now i have to clean it twice. Hope you can help me find a solution to just do it once and have it done.

    • 3kidsandamom

      Being the SAHM mom of 3, I probably run the dishwasher at least once a day. Since I'm at home, I cook more, and that results in a lot more dishes. I hate that I have to wash the sticky messy yuck before I put it in the dish washer- it takes time away from my family! No pre-rinsing sounds dreamy… :)

    • Summer

      We do a load a day! big family!!

    • cristieeli

      On average I have to do 14 loads a week, even more when I get in to a baking mood! My least favorite chore, by far, is emptying the dishwasher and I think it is because you never know what you are gonna find! I would rather scrub a toilet than empty the dishwasher, maybe a little Cascade Action Pak would change that!

      • Kelly

        I also HATE unloading the dishwasher…who know why….I would rather scrub out cloth diapers by hand than unload it…that's really pathetic, eh?

    • Racheal

      We run it about 8-10 times a week. Too many dishes!

    • Nancy

      We do at least one load a day sometimes two or three. Would love to try these

    • Sherry

      I run my washer as little as possible. I usually do no more than 2 loads a week (but we only have a 2 person household;-)

    • Puppylovernorris

      We run about 3 or 4 loads a week.

    • Lori

      I run mine two or three times a week.

    • griffins00

      I usually try to give my dishwasher a break a couple of days a week, so I usually run mine about 5-7 times a week, and not usually every day. unfortunately, I can relate, Jenny, and it is not uncommon to see a dish sitting on the counter for 24 hours!

    • elisabeth

      i run the dishwasher about 2-3 times a day!

    • anawertz

      I run the dishwasher 4-6 times a week sometimes more If I bake that week!

    • Super

      I do 5-6 loads a week!

    • Tonya

      7 times a week

    • HomeTownLife

      We do 2-3 loads of dishes a day, for a family of 7 … so, something like 17 loads per week!

    • Sarah

      unfortunately we run our dishwasher 7-9 times a week. Sometimes 2 loads a day. With a 5, 4, and a 3 month old, we have lots of dishes, bottles, and a pump to wash daily!!

    • PAM HOWELL

      on the average about 6 x's per week

    • Charlotte

      There are six in my household with one more that comes in and out so our dishwasher is ran once everyday or two. And lots of time we just don't put some pans and dishes in the dishwasher because we know they will never get clean so what is the point. So on top of a full dishwasher I spends loads of time having to wash things that you think should be able to go in the dishwasher. It would make my life so much better if the dishwasher would actually wash all my dishes. Your luck with this makes me want to try this out but I am sceptically because nothing has worked in the past and I don't want to just through money away on something that does not work.

    • LABRABRO

      I run anywhere from 7 to 12 loads of dishes in a week depending on the amount of company I may hoave at my house. I love the Cascade Action Pacs (I have received a sample in the mail) because I do not have to add a rinse agent to my dishwasher.

    • stephaniem0303

      We run ours everyday if not more. I have a one year old so it fills up with sippy cups very quickly. The dish washer is old and I end up having to hand wash half of the stuff that has already been through.

    • K. Todd

      7-9 loads a week. Always got something cooking/baking in the kitchen for my great family and HATE, HATE, HATE to wash the dishes so it seems the diswasher is either getting loaded or un-loaded constantly.

    • Heather

      I do a load of dishes every night. Sometimes 2 if I have a lot of baby bottles and really dirty pans. I don't want to run them together.

    • Couponing Campbell

      It might be easier if I just told you how many loads we wash per day! If it's not running after every meal, you can bet your bottom dollar that we're not home!

    • Hi there! I read with interest your email about Cascade. I usually only wash dishes twice a week or when the dishwasher is full. I would love not to have to fully wash them ahead of time, so this would be an awesome test!!!

    • I have a family of 5. The dishes pile up so fast. In a good week i only use my dishwasher 9 times. I do hand wash some so that i dont have to run it more. Kids seem to lose their cups and drop their silverware frequently. I love the cascade action pacs. They do the job. I just hate when i run out of them and am left to use the store brand.

    • MalcolmsGirl

      My dishwasher is used once a day. I usually run it every night after dinner.

    • mistyb

      I run my dishwasher about 5 times a week. We are a 5 person household, 1 load per person I guess!!

    • Kristen

      CHOOSE ME! I think I have the same relationship with my dishwasher that you do Jenny! The thought of put anything unscrubbed in tehre send shivers down my spine. Right now I run my dishwasher about twice a week. It's me, my husband and our 2 1/2 year old…but we've got another on the way so in 2 months I'm guessing the dishwasher cycles will multiply exponentially. I'd love to try this product!

    • scmommy

      I am slightly “germ-a-phobic” so I put anything that goes into my kids mouths in the dishwasher so I can sanitize it, and I have to do that everyday because I have a little one that is still taking bottles and pacifiers. One the weekends I usually do an extra load since we are home and getting more stuff dirty, so I would say about 8 a week.
      I also read somewhere that using the dishwasher to wash a full load of dishes uses less water than handwashing them. Don't know if this is true (can't remember where I read it), but if anyone does know and this is not true, please tell me so I will stop thinking it! :-)

    • krumley

      I received a 2 pack sample recently in the mail thanks to your website and it's links. I can't wait to try it tonight. I will be baking lazanga. I typically do 9 loads a week and I have been waiting for the dishwasher to quit so I could get a new one.

    • Racheal

      We do 8-10 loads a day. Too many dishes!

    • selenajackson

      I run my dishwasher about 8 or 9 times a week

      5-6 times each week

    • Kellymoe

      We have a family of 5 so we dirty up dishes like it is going out of style!! We run our dishwasher every day and still have to wash some by hand after dinner each night.

    • Kathy Barton

      I run my dishwasher every day most days

    • Natalie

      3-4 Loads per week… Would luv to try these.

    • TwinMom2xs

      There are 6 of us in my family and my two youngest and myself are home all day so we unfortunately accumulate dirty dishes very quickly. As a result, we have to run the dishwasher every day without fail!

    • We run our dishwasher about 4 times per week

    • dusteen

      Three times a week, if the whole town isn't flooded and we are sitting here on a water conservation order!! Hello from Nashville Tennessee!

    • Michelle

      “My task was to make blueberry cobbler (you mean I “have to make cobbler? I’m so into this review already) and then leave the dish on the counter for 24 hours (I confess here that part’s not hard either around this place). After leaving it out stick it straight into the dishwasher without rinsing.”

      This made me laugh…I do this ALL the time! LOL

      I run my dishwasher almost every day (usually the only day I can skip it is if we eat dinner out).

    • ruthSC

      We run a load a day, but all pots and any thing with sticky, baked-on, or otherwise tough to clean are done by hand (specifically, by my hands). I'd love to be able to throw all that in the dishwasher and know it's getting clean!

    • tatumoc

      5 loads a week

    • Susan

      I got the two pack sample in the mail this week. It worked great. I run my dishwasher three or four days a week.

    • Heather

      We run about a load a day most days- at least 5x a week,if not 7x.

    • I do 5-6 loads a week, not a ton, but our dishwasher STINKS!! So I have to prewash everything!

    • Sarah

      I do maybe 4 loads a week. I should do more but I tend to let them sit there.

    • at least 4-5x a week

    • YOOHOO126

      At least 14!

    • Christi Scholl

      Usually every other day.

    • Kelli

      I have twin 11 month olds so between bottles, sippie cups and just regular old dishes we run the dishwasher 7 or 8 times a week. I haven't tried the action packs yet but would love to.

    • bonnieblue031

      I run 6 to 7 loads of dishes a week.

    • Christina

      Since there's only 2 of us…as of right now. I probably run it on average 3 times a week.

    • monkiesfam

      we normally wash about 6 loads a week! thanks for all that you do!

    • lbcook

      I/my husband wash 1 load per day in dishwasher, not to mention the grimy dishes in the sink!

    • Lori

      I have a very old dishwasher so I always scrub out the dishes in the sink first, put them in the dishwasher and run them. We run right at a load a day. (7)

    • Laura

      I too have a love/hate relationship with my dishwasher and would LOVE to try these! I usually run my dishwasher 4-6 times a week.

    • ItsACouponThing

      I was no less than twice/day, sometimes more. Unfortunately, my dishwasher doesn't like cleaning a full load, either, so I often take out what got clean and re-wash the same load, without adding more. I typically wash around lunch time, take the clean dishes out for supper before putting away, wash again after dinner (depending on the amount of pans & dishes, this, again, might be split in two washes), and then by morning I often find there's a whole load in the sink again for me to wash in the morning. I might sound like I'm exaggerating, but I assure you, I am not. Example: although I washed last night, in my sink right now is a pan from fried eggs (some still in there!), two empty bowls from ice cream, a bowl with yucky carrots that were left in the fridge too long, a bowl of leftover mash potatoes (did I mention they get hungry at night? LOL), and three glasses. I keep telling them, “That's why I stocked up on disposable plates/cups,” but that message just doesn't get through to them, when I'M the one constantly washing dishes!
      I made the joke last week when my husband asked me to tidy downstairs, “I guess I'll need to leave the dirty dishes in the sink, so I'll have time to work on the rest of the house!”

    • Rajbishop

      I'm pretty bad about leaving my dishes until I have a full dishwasher load so I what they look like with hardened food residue! I run 2-3 loads a week.

    • knvista

      I run my dishwasher about 9 times each week. With 3 of us home all day, every day it really fills up fast! That, and I love to cook! I had a Bosch dishwasher in my last house that could clean ANYTHING! My new house has a run-of-the-mill dishwasher and I'd love to see if this product could restore my previous dishwasher's capability in our inferior dishwasher.

    • Amy Eubanks

      it is just the 2 of us, so we only run twice a week. I probably should run it more though.

    • aluv5102

      my husband and i have 4 kids…there are days when i wash 3 loads of dishes…we try to eat at home as much as possible…i do alot of cleaning up in the kitchen! at least once a week i have to rewash my dishes…i use cascade :( so i think it may be my dishwasher…i can promise you that it would NOT wash off blueberry pie that sat out for 24 hours!

    • ruthsimms

      I try to keep my loads down to one a day so I conserve on water but I usually end up doing about 8-9 a week.

    • lisamcannally

      I do a minimum of 7 loads a week, but usually about 10 loads a week. I love to try these as many of my dishes have to be scrubbed if I hope for it to come out clean. Thanks for sharing!

    • Cheri Anderson

      Every day. 7 times a week

    • Shannon

      5-6 loads per week

    • I usually run at least 3-4 loads a week! Love Cascade!

    • 4jesusfreaks

      9 loads

    • Connie

      I run the dishwasher at least 4 times per week.

    • Pamela

    • maedae93

      I run the dishwasher once a day/7 days a week. thanks!

    • Vikki

      I run my dishwasher 6 – 7 times each week.

    • Kendra

      I run my dishwasher every day at least and on days I prepare freezer meals it can get ran twice.

    • Bev

      I love Cascade Complete! I had a similar experience with a dishwasher that wasn't very good at getting off the surface junk on dishes. It really does an amazing job! Would love to win this! I do at least 7 loads of dishes a week (1 per day)–sometimes more!

    • MMurdock

      LOVE my dishwasher–but hate the pre-rinsing required on everything! We have a family of 5 and run 8 to 10 times a week!

    • Jennifer

      I generally wash a load a day. (There are just 3 of us.) Occasionally, I can get by with one every 2 days. I run everything through the dishwasher though! I can't stand to handwash dishes! I don't feel like they get clean enough! :)

    • carlockstinger

      We have 7 children and do alot of cooking at home, so we use our dishwasher quite a bit! Sometimes on weekends we use it twice a day! On average per week, we run ours 8 times! Lots of dishes, but it beats hand washing them!

    • Christy Haas

      I do at least 4 loads a week if not more and I'll be doing one tonight or we have nothing to eat out of!

    • adamsmom1

      I usually do a load a day, except when we are having an eating-out binge. Then I only do one every 2-3 days.

    • kendrawilliams

      I run my dishwasher 6 – 8 times a week depending on the family schedule. I usually hand wash anything like that cobbler dish so I would really enjoy a product that would keep me from doing that part. Hey how do i become a part of that kind of review process? I already use Cascade plastic booster and recommend it to all of my Tupperware customers.

    • kelly tucker

      OMG!!! I run about 10 loads a week but before you say that's alot I have 5 kids and alot of mess to load and sometimes I have to run it twice because the food still sticks to the pan or plate. I would love to try this on my plates it would save me time and less loads a week to run. Thanks

    • stephsboyds

      I run my dishwasher twice a day! As much as 14 times a week. We have two adults and three kids! Our dishwasher is standard size but not big enough! No one is able to use a glass more than once! My daughter has the ability to lose two sippy cups a day by putting them under beds and leaving them outside. My oldest son and husband do not always pre rinse before running the load. Usually that means it has to be run again!

    • Kelly F.

      I normally run the dishwasher once a day, so 7 times per week. I would LOVE to be able to run my dishwasher without rinsing! I don't believe it's possible.

    • katiegreenvillesaver

      We run our dishwasher about once a day! I love to cook and, for the most part, cook only from scratch. And, as we all know, cooking from scratch = dirtying up LOTS of pots and pans!!

    • Gabby Rona

      usually everyday:)Seven times a week

    • Allison

      I run about 5-7 loads a week.

    • sundrop474

      At least once a day, if we have guests over for a meal, twice. My sil has two dishwashers. I think that is awesome.

    • Beverly

      Only 1 load per week…mostly because my dishwasher is on its last leg, so I end up handwashing most of the dishes!

    • missthemister

      I have a small family, so I only do about 7 to 10 loads per week.

    • BT

      Do 2-3 loads per week. Thanks

    • Klaughery

      I run my dishwasher about 4-5 times a week.

    • $SavinMom

      Between all the sippy cups and snack dishes from my son piling on top my husband and I's dishes, we usually fill the dishwasher up once a day. Sometimes we can stretch it every other day if we eat out or cook something that requires only one dish. We are not big on “hand washing” so we often run a load 5-7 times a week. This sounds like something I would really like to try and would make working in the kitchen that much more fun if I didn't have to pre-scrub every dish!

    • crystal1214

      I do atleast one load in the dishwasher a day, thats 7 loades a week, ugh… and needless to say my dishwasher is old, since we rent the house and they refuse to put a new one in. So, we have to deal with it. It would be nice to try this and see if it would help me not have to presoak and prewash….seems to me if you have to do that, you might as well wash all of them by hand, lol.

    • Renee

      At least 7!

    • Lizzy B

      We run our dishwasher about 5-6 times a week! So many dishes!

    • mel327

      With 5 of us, lots of glasses and coffee cups, I run 2 drawer-fulls every day. I love these dishwashers, don't know if I could go through with the challenge without rinsing!

    • Ronda

      Usually once a day, unless we eat out…sometimes it gets funky smellin' in there ;)

    • Beth

      We use ours about 1 to 2 times a week!!

    • sfncb15

      Anywhere between 14 and 21. Having 3 year old and 8 month old creates alot of dishes! Not to mention feeding my husband's single soldier friends! Ahh. Army life.

    • sixsigmamom

      I do around 10 loads per week.

    • Valerie

      Everyday…7 times a week, I guess we eat a lot!

    • lori B

      I do at least a load a day, sometimes twice a day on the weekends. We have a HUGE family!

    • Michele

      Usually about 3 – 4 loads a week, but up to 7 a week when I'm experimenting with my cooking. (Lots of hand washing then too…)

    • susandtim

      I run 5-7 loads a week

    • Amanda

      Wow…how many? Well we have started to try and save money by eating three meals a day here at my house. So I usually do at least one dish load a day…sometimes 2 or 3 if we have company!!

    • tuckyblue

      too many!!! about 14

    • Corrie

      It's just two of us so I'd say 2-3 times a week.

    • ucfmissy

      About 4-5 times a week.

    • kristen2002

      I run my dishwasher about 3-4 times a week depending on how much we eat out. I would love to not have to pre-wash my plates, pots, pans anymore.

    • 3 – 4 loads weekly usually; wash some stuff by hand also.

    • Jspoon

      Every day at the least. My dishwasher is a constant at our house. Not only do I put my dishes in there…. I put our toothbrushes, toothbrush holder, my bucket I water plants with… pretty much anything that fits! LOL!!!

    • kbogle

      Dishwasher runs usually 8 – 10 times a week.

    • denaSC

      I wash dishes in the washer 4 times a !week

    • Allison

      We usually run our dishwasher once a day. We have a toddler, so there are always dishes to be washed!

    • Ronda

      once a day

    • Tonya

      at least 10 and some because I didn't prescrub so they didn't get clean:)

    • Leslie

      Usually once a day so 7 times a week.

    • I usually run about 5 loads a week

    • Brittney

      I run the dishwasher once a day and I wash everything including pots and pans as long as it fits it.

    • flossieg

      Running it once a day!

    • kimgarner

      I usually run my dishwasher once a day, every day. What doesn't fit, I wash in the sink. I tried to develop this habit years ago, so I would not wake up to dirty dishes :)

    • cheryl merritt

      Hi Jenny,
      Wow could I ever use this! We have a large family- teen daughter still at home, daughter & SIL & 2 boys live with us & I often babysit our other 3 wonderful grandchildren. We cook, eat & do dishes all day long!! We run our dishwasher 2- 3 times each day. Our d/w is old and finicky so all the dishes have to be pre-rinsed. That means if our teen daughter thinks she can get away w/ it, she just crams everything in and we start over again ;) I'd love to have something to make dishwashing a quick and easy task for us.
      Thanks,
      Cheryl Merritt

    • Stacey Sprouse

      1 per day, so 7 per week. I hand wash one or two sink full a day as well.

    • Alli

      I run the dishwasher almost everyday. Probably average 6 loads a week. I'm already a user of Cascade Action Pacs. They are expensive, but they really work. Consumer reports had them listed as top rated which brought them to my attention. My dishwasher is 14 years old, I never rinse anything (except red sauces, pasta, and rice), and everything comes out clean the first time. No coffee stains and my copper bottom pats don't need to be polished.

    • melody

      it seems like we run the dishwasher once a day!!

    • I run my dishwasher 5-7 times a week.

    • Julie Slack

      I run 7 loads a week, and I preety much put everything in the dishwasher-I don't wash anything by hand if I can help it.

    • KJEH

      I run at least a load a day (baby bottles and nipples have to be run through each day–ay, yiy, yiy!) and when we have family over, which is frequently, then sometimes 2X a day. I HATE handwashing and I am also really bad about pre-rinsing, but my dishwasher usually handles it kwell. :) Yay for dishwashers!!

    • granjen

      Usually 4 to 5 a week, unless the grand kids are here…then it could be twice a day.

    • terri52

      Seven days, seven loads, carefully. My dishwasher reminds me of that Doris Day movie with the soap suds all over the house and pool! I rinse the dishes, run the disposal first, and watch and wait carefully while it runs!

    • Sara

      Gosh, I run about 5-7 loads of dishes a week. I would love to win!!

    • Shannon

      I run my dishwasher usually at least twice a day. We work from home and I have 1 child, but usually some other children tagging along. I just think the dishwasher is the safest way to kill germs. Handwashing only happens for items not suited well for the dishwasher. I'd say total, I run about 14 to 15 loads a week.

    • tambo913

      I do at least 7 loads a week…… sometimes 10!

    • deenateena

      I run about 2 loads a week in the dishwasher.

    • sdred85

      There's only 2 of us and we run the dishwasher everyday!

    • Sarah

      Seems like I run the dishwasher daily. As a stay at home mom I use a lot of dishes during the day with my little ones. On a budget, my husband takes a lot of meals in tupperware for lunch at work. And after a full dinner our dishwasher is packed! I run it each night and have fresh dishes ready to use the next morning again. Would love to try Cascade Action packs considering I use the bulky gallon of liquid detergent now.

    • Amy

      I run the dish washer about 10 times a week. I cook every day some times 2 times a day. You better believe I am not going to hand wash all those dishes. So needless to say my dishwasher works really hard.

    • Susan

      I run about 4.

    • adrianneholley

      Do you think because of the verbiage on the package, I could get my husband to break the chains of his mother, and quit pre-rinsing???? BTW, we do between 5-6 loads per week.

    • dawnj123

      Can definitly use this!! I wash a load every day and normally use electrosol so I would love to try this product!!
      Thanks

    • wendeeb

      I had to LOL when you said “how many loads do you run a week!' My DH complains DAILY about the amount of dishes we do. At least 7 and sometimes 9 or 10 times a week, I run my dishwasher.

    • Jenntn

      We run ours once a day.

    • Leslie

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day. I have had trouble finding a detergent that gets my dishes clean enough, and I always pre-rinse. I was amazed to hear your review, I will even try these if I dont win the giveaway (as long as I can find some great coupons, that is)

    • Bianca

      we do at least 14 a week some times more and I know what your talking about my dishwasher is the same way even if I pre rinse I still get crud on glasses it so aggravating.

    • Theres Stralow

      We run the dishwasher 3 or 4 times a week, but I try to wash the pots and other items that do not fit. Those items have a tendency to not come clean as easily anyway.

    • staceyn

      i use the dishwasher at least once a day, i am the recent mother of twins, so it has recently been a bit more, i'd say 9 times a week

    • jennielouwho

      I run about a load a day, so about 7 a week.

    • CarolinaGirl80

      I run a load everynight. On holidays, I run it twice that day!

    • sblyth

      I run about 5 loads a week. More if I'm doing heavier cooking for the week.

    • Rebecca

      3-4 loads a week. I hate it!

    • wandaschenck

      I wash 7 loads in my dishwasher per week but I have always prewashed my dishes. How nice it would be not to have to prewash everything.

    • Butlbr

      I only have to run the dishwasher about twice a week. Mostly because I still do a good portion of dishes by hand.

    • Valerie

      I barely run my dishwasher because the detergent I use now doesn't work well and I'd hate to throw away perfectly good detergent! That also means I have to wash everything by hand… including the baby bottles!

    • aussie509

      every other day, about 4 days a week. I have to scrub some of them because they don't get clean some times, especially the utensils.

    • Mary Alice

      I must run my dishwasher almost everyday. I have a six and a half month old who just started solids and now that I am a stay-at-home mom, which means cooking at home, I feel like my dishwasher is running non-stop between cereal bowls, dishes, cups and, of course, bottles.

    • Amy

      I run about 7-8 loads a week.

    • meldeb3k

      Well, because we're on a tight budget like everyone else, we don't eat out much and it seems the dishwasher is always going. With 3 teenagers running in and out all day and everyone on different eating schedules (except I insist on dinner together at least once a week!) our dishwasher does double duty. I'd say almost two full loads a day. Seems we're always emptying the dishwasher. :)

    • MariPratt

      We do anywhere from 6 to 9 loads of dishes a week in my household. It really depends if I decided to make a large Sunday dinner or bake on the weekend.
      I do use Cascade Complete. I am a working Mom of three & I like anything that can save me time & money.
      Using Cascade complete saves us money on our water bill but I do have to admit. I have never put a pan fully crusted & covered in blue berry cobbler in my dishwasher. I think I would using a nylon scrpaer & Dawn on it first.
      But now I know better.

      Mari Pratt

    • Nicole Jones

      We have two babies and run the dishwasher at least once a day. (7 loads per week). We have to keep their bottles and sippy cups clean!

    • abcdsclark

      i run around 2 a day it seems, it is always running! sippy cups bottles plates, the girls think each food needs a new utensil!

    • Diane

      The dishwasher in my house runs 3-4x week, I love these things.

    • ynotbee

      I probably run 3-4 loads of dishes per week on average, sometimes more. I, too, have stuck on food! I would love to take this challenge!!

    • jenniferduckworth

      I run at least 2 loads of dishes per day with 6 people in our house. I would love to try this!

    • Amy

      With two small children and eating at home more often now that I coupon, we do about 10 loads of dishes a week.

    • Chata_Ren

      There's two of us, but we cook so much that we run a load a day! And we sometimes have to run a load twice just to get the baked on goodness off!

    • Melanie

      We use our dishwasher everyday, with 3 boys, two parents and a grandmother, we make lots of messes =)!

    • mncetheredge

      I run my dishwasher any were from 1 to 2 times a day. More times then not its twice a day. my 3 girls will not drink out of the same cup!! makes me hate dishes. lol

    • Well…if I didn't have to scrub all of the dishes prior to placing them in the dishwasher I would probably use the dishwasher more often, but as it stands I basically wash the dishes just to put them in the dishwasher, so usually hand wash most of my dishes. Otherwise I would probably do 1-2 loads a day with the amount of dishes we go through.

    • Angela

      I do at least 3 loads a week. :)

    • kesha1975

      We always do about 7 loads a weeks. We eat at home most of the time. And I too have one of those dishwasher…It almost seems like you have to completely wash them before you put them in thd diswasher! AUGH!

    • JessieP

      I'm a college student (so yes, I'm always broke). I heard about this website about 3 months ago and LOVE IT! I used to do A LOT of fast food, but since I'm using coupons and actually buying groceries now I'm saving money and eating healthier. However, the only down side is that I am now doing about a load of dishes each day (versus about 2 per week before).

    • At least a partial load everyday…

    • Kelly

      4 or 5 times a week. The actionpacs are great – my favorite to use (when they're on sale)

    • April

      I run my dishwasher at least every other day if not everyday! It depends if I am feeling lazy and let them hang out for a while!!

    • Meloney Cooke

      We wash daily if not 2 times! Family of 5 eats a lot!

    • Amy

      7-9 loads a week, approximately!

    • MaeLenaD

      About a load a day in a very unhappy dishwasher. It would seem to me our dishwasher could use a special pick me up! :)

    • kimparler

      I'm single and dishes stay dirty till there's a full load. Would love to try it!

    • kim79ga

      Probably 5-7 loads a week.

    • lizmm

      We do about 6 loads a week–sometimes depending on how many family members are visiting I will do 10!

    • angelahelms

      I have 2 load per day. One in the morning that includes breakfast dishes and any snack dishes or glasses from the night before and one with dinner dishes.This is done everyday unless by some rare rare chance we eat out. With 3 year old twins and a messy husband :) it would be nice to not have to waste that extra time with pre-rinsing.

    • cgordon6

      I try to wash only one load a week. I use this brand of Cascade and it works wonders!

    • shelley

      1 load a week. We eat out alot!!
      Shelley

    • Leslie

      We was at least 10-15 loads a week. Stay-at-home mom who tries to cook most of the time with four young children – yep, LOTS of dirty dishes!! :-)

    • Nicole

      We have a pretty big family so we do 25 a week.

    • jkjjhuddle

      I run the dishwasher about twice a day times a day. I LOVE this giveaway. Sounds like just what we need! I always have extra people in the house.

    • MMHSOLOMON

      We run a load each day. We ore-rinse as I have not found a detergent that I trust my dishes with.

    • Diana

      I do 4 or 5 loads a week depending on how often we eat at home. I would love to try the Cascade Action Pacs as my husband helps with the dishes sometimes and has no idea how to load them correctly.

    • disneybellarella

      5-7 times a week

    • cbwebber

      Close to daily!

    • Aly B

      At least one load a day, sometimes two! Cooking plus kids equals lots of dishes to wash!

    • michele8

      We do only 2 loads a week. We use Cascade but the powder type.

    • Elizabeth

      I run 1 a day – wash the rest to save water, power and detergent.

    • Erica C.

      I usually run about 8-10, depending on if we smoke or grill outside…..my husband uses EVERY DISH IN THE KITCHEN if that happens! lol! Thanks for the chance!

    • JENNIFER

      About three times a week. I always wash off my dishes first before sticking them in the dish washer. Sounds like a great product.

    • trishap

      I wash 6-7 loads a week. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • I run about 4 loads a week and ALWAYS have to pre-rinse or the dishes come out dirty! I would LOVE to try this product and see just what it can do for me ;-)

    • Christina R

      I do 3-4 loads a week. But I admit I usually scrub before I put dishes in. Nothing worse then seeing dirty dishes come out and knowing you have to rewash!

    • Christy

      I run the diswasher everyday and with a big family get together on Sundays after church, we run 2-3.

    • sarahann78

      I run ours at least once a day here. Would be great for when my husband does the dishes and crams everything in there without rinsing…that way I can say “Thank you for doing the dishes!” Instead of thinking—now I have to rerun the cycle with half the dishes that didn't get clean. :)

    • tweedle1218

      I usually run about 14-16 loads a week :)

    • sush

      i run every day… but the thing is i have to rinse dishes very clean, if i keep a dish as it is, it will ruin the whole load. I would like to try this one.

    • kkeenan79

      7-9 loads per week!

    • Jennifer

      We do at least 1 load every 2 days, sometimes a load everyday.

    • Ellen

      Every night before bed I put my personal dish maid to work washing dishes for the 5 of us.

    • Lara

      i wash 7-8 loads and week and hate to unload it but hate to wash dishes by hand more!!! I would love to try the new cascade

    • ashelton

      I do 6-8 loads a week, and I have wanted to try the Cascade Actionpacs!!!

    • Atleast 10 loads a week (if I am lucky) Too bad this wasn't a give away for a new dishwasher ;)

      • RobinB78

        That WOULD be an awesome give away!! Lord knows all of us busy ladies could use new dishwashers! Ones that don't answer to our first names! LOL

    • nancyjo1557

      We run, a minimum, of one load per day. There are five of us + boyfriends and friends, which gives us plenty of dirty dishes!

    • Kim

      We run our diswasher every other day. I try to stretch it to 3 days.

    • This is horrible and I'm afraid that someone will throw something at me when I say this… for our family of two (hubs & me) we run the washer two times most days with the occasional one time a day. I make all of our meals though and we use reusable containers for lunches and water bottles and stuff…. It is even worse if I do a lot of cooking over the weekends because I'll make muffins or bread and really have a lot of dishes to do. I would LOVE to win these becuase I am about ready to break up with my current dishwasher tabs.

    • courtneywhobrey

      I do around 4 or 5 loads of dishes a week.

    • Renee

      I LOAD THE DW AND RUN AT LEAST 5-6 LOADS PER WEEK.

    • a_k_umphrey

      1 load per day!

    • Sarah G.

      Usually once a day, but sometimes more. On average 7 times per week – and that's after practically washing the dishes first in the sink! UGH. I think I need to try the Cascade ActionPacs too!

    • laurapetersen

      We do 10-13 loads a week. I am a stay at home mom of a 4 year old plus I also take care of my Father-In Law who is a qaudrapalegic..Our dish soap is OK but sometimes I still have to go back and handwash or just stick back in and let the machine re-wash(I get lazy) anyhow..would love to try it!!!

    • I only do one or two loads a week with just 2 of us here, and a lot of times even fewer because I've been almost washing the dishes before putting them in, but this stuff sounds like it might change my mind about the dishwasher.

    • Dawn

      I susually run 3-4 loads a week. I always have to rinse my dishes really well before I put them in the dishwasher. I would love to find a product where I did not have to pre-rinse! That would be a huge time saver!!!

    • Julie

      We do at least one load of dishes a day. This doesn't include any larger items that we hand wash. Thanks for the chance to win!

    • Aminie Ford

      A full load every other day! (4 – 5 per week)

    • Sherri

      I run dishwasher about 6-7 times a week and would love to try it because some of my cooking essentials didn't wash off and sometimes the glass baking dish won't wash all the corners off.

    • Elizabeth

      5-8 loads a week!

    • 1 1/2 a day, depending on how much baby food I'm making that day and whether my husband has been taking lunches to work. I have a brand new dishwasher, yet still seem to pre-wash my dishes. I thought somehow I didn't learn how to do it right, but maybe it's just my detergent!?

    • Jessica

      We probably load the dishwasher around two to three times per week. But I find that I wash dishes by hand every night, because of pans that won't wash well in the dishwasher.

    • Emilytwinmom

      Good lord some people have a lot of dirty dishes! We try to keep it to 5 or 6 loads a week for our family of five. We use regular cascade, have never tried this! Thanks for the review even if we don't win!

    • RobinB78

      I run the dishwasher at least once a day! Twice on Wednesday's when it's our turn to host our dinner club!!

      I think I'm going to recreate your experiment!! I just got an Action Packs sample in the mail! This should be fun!! LOL

    • Stephanie B

      Seems like I am always doing dishes – LOL! I average 1-2 loads a day. So I am going to say 10 a week!

    • Jaclyn

      I do around 6 loads a week

    • I run probably about 7-8 loads a week.

    • rachelsouliere

      7, we run it every night, uhg! Lots of dishes aorund here. We have many friends who do paper, but I can't decided if that isn't worse, money to buy products, more trash, more waste for environment. Not sure, anyway, would LOVE to try these!!!

    • Jenn

      I probably do a load every day/every other day.

    • nikkibirdie

      I usually do a load every day. I think our sink has a dirty little secret, because dishes put in there seem to multiply!

    • karen

      3-4 loads a week here, as well as washing a few pots, pans, skillet, crockpot, etc., each evening.

    • barbara

      We run our diswasher every other day, sometimes everyday.

    • Erika

      5 times a week

    • maggieorames

      About 2-3 times a week, but we have an old dishwasher that leaves all sorts of build up and we pretty much have to have the dishes clean before we put them in there. These little packs sound great! Thank you!

    • bridgetn

      One load every other day, so 3-4 a week.

    • Tara Robison

      5-7 loads a week. It takes forever when you have to basically wash the dishes first!!!

    • Crystal

      I wish I could say I ran one load per day, but unfortunately I'm a little bite lazy and run about two loads every three days.

    • christi

      Every day I run the dishwasher… three meals a day go out of my house. Iam a family of 4. I would love to just be able to load with no rinsing!!!!!

    • Heather

      Seems like we're always running the dishwasher! It's just my husband and I, but I love to cook and bake, which will quickly fill it up!

    • Millie English

      8-10 loads a week, which seems way too high for a family of our size. I really like Cascade Complete, so I'd love to try the ActionPacs. Thanks for all you do, Jenny!

    • kristiewilliams98

      We usually do 5-6 loads a week…thanks!

    • Heather

      I run my dishwasher once a day. That is on a normal day where I'm not baking for someone or cooking food to freeze for later use.

    • plumkaty

      I would say I almost run a load a day but on average probably about 5 times a week.

    • K. J.

      7-8 loads a week for me!

    • Dixie

      I do about 2 loads a week at my house, and 2 at my boyfriend's.

    • Mistletoes405

      I run the dishwasher at least once a day…sometimes twice due to my husband's inability to pre-rinse. :( I'd love to give these a try and see if they'd help cut out that occasional 2nd cycle on the same dishes!!

    • I run mine at least once a day if not twice. Sometimes the second time is a rewash……… I'd love to try the Cascade…. You even have me wanting to make a Cobbler tonight lol!!

    • suejean1

      We usually run the dishwasher daily.

    • I run at least 7 a week, if not more.

    • SM

      I use mine 7-8 time a week.

    • carol brady

      I run the dishwasher every third day or so.

    • Leslie

      I do a load everyday, so 7 x's a week. I am a working mom with 2 sons and a daughter and A LOT of dirty dishes, not rinsing everything would be a huge help in saving my precious time :) I have been wanting to try these.

    • sue

      I currently use my dishwasher for storage for bags of chips ect. I would love to try something that would convince me that it is worth using the extra electricity to run the dishwasher and not have to rewash anything.

    • Jaimie

      I run my dishwasher every day!

    • tbeck79

      Anywhere from 3-5 loads depending who came over!!

    • Marana

      Hmmm…we probably average 8 loads in a week. Ugg…that really is horrible!

    • Tiffany

      1-2 loads a day…..around 8-10 a week!!

    • Ali

      about 9 loads a week. I have stinky little boys who don't always scrape their dishes clean before putting them in the sink so I am REALLY eager to try this one :)

    • Regina Glass

      I run mine about once a day!!

    • jamie

      I run my dishwasher about 3 times a week. It is usually full, but i have to have clean sippy cups.

    • atdgatlin

      I do on average a load a day, but I also hand wash baby items at least twice a day — stuff that doesn't clean well in the dishwasher.

    • RBate

      7-8 times a week.

    • Rei

      I usually do 4-5 loads a week!

    • davidreynolds1529

      I would say my wife and I and our son (21 months old) (who always likes to help with this) probably run the dishwasher at least once a night sometimes two so i'd say 7 to 10 times a week. I'm the one usually doing the dishes because my wife usually cooks because i don't get home till 8pm. Of course i have to do the dishes her way and that includes having to pre wash stuff which i absolutely hate with a passion. Thats what the dishwasher is for, right? So i'm always trying to sneak stuff in there so i don't have to do it by hand but she usually always catches me then i get yelled at and educated on the proper loading procedure at least once a week. So it would be nice to not prewash and not tell her that i used this seemingly wonderful product and then i can get away with it. So yeah I would love to avoid any prewashing!

    • Michelle

      4-5 loads per week

    • dealfinder86

      Our household of 8 runs the dishwasher at least 14 times a week (2 times a day)… We all eat together almost every night and it results in lots and lots of dishes!! We try to cut down on the dishes with the disposables- but that gets pricey too! We would LOVE to try the Cascade complete. THANKS!!! :)

    • underhiswing

      ….7-8 a week….

    • Mom_Of_Five

      I run the dishwasher with a full load of dishes every single day with the occasional extra load! With 7 in the household, it fills up pretty quickly. I'd love to give this product a try because my dishes don't always come out clean and I get tired of rinsing and drying.

    • Lisa

      I have a dish drawer type of dishwasher too, and we run one drawer each night for a total of 7 loads a week. I'm curious to know what issues you have with yours… I really like ours.

    • Susan

      more like a few loads a week

    • zigwald33

      Once a week…start filling it on Friday evening and run it Sunday evening so I can be relaxed of at least one thing to enjoy my weekend…

    • melissa m

      7-9 loads a week! A family of 5 and always guests on the weekend!!! WOw.. never thought of it that way

    • Lara

      I run it 1-2 times a day after scrubbing the dishes prior to placing them in the dishwasher. We rent so we cannot buy a new dishwasher. I would love to give Cascade a try!

    • kelly

      there's only 3 of us- I do a lot by hand too- about 4!

    • christi reaves

      probably about 9 times a week family of five with twin 17month olds lots of sippy cups!!!!

    • JmeMacD

      I do dishes every 2-3 days. Depending on if I feel like hand washing the BIG stuff!

    • wendy erhart

      I run my dishwasher atleast once a day – sometimes twice….usually to rewash what wasn't clean the 1st time. I'd love to try this out for you

    • DawnMD

      I run at least 6 loads aweek

    • ashleigh

      Once a day, plus a sink full of baby bottles etc. I would love to try these!

    • I probably run 3-4 loads a week.

    • smrichars2

      Probably 3 times a week, maybe 4.

    • Alison

      Pretty much one a day, so 7 in a week.

    • pickleplug

      4ish

    • 1home

      I have a deal with the husband. I cook he cleans. He does about 7 to 9 a week.

    • Sarah M.

      I run the dishwasher approximately 3-4 times a week. I hope I win!!! :-)

    • Rector10

      There are 6 in my family, so I average about 1.5 loads per day=10 times per week.

    • Bree

      Three or four!

    • aubrngrl

      I probably run 4-5 most weeks…

    • valj16171

      I probably do 5 loads in the dishwasher a week. Plus the dozens of times I wash dishes in the sink too!

    • alexis

      probably 7 or 8 a week.

    • Lindsey

      We probably do 5 loads of dishes a week for a family of 4!

    • maybe 3-4 per week.

    • Tonya

      I run about 4 loads per week.

    • freya336

      Like many others here, I run my dishwasher 5-7 times a week and EVERYTHING must be cleaned off before running it in order for the dishes to come out clean.

      Unfortunately, my husband refuses to accept this fact, so if I'm not paying attention and he gets into the kitchen to “help” me by loading up, I end up doing it over again because everything comes out just as dirty, usually with the cheese and egg, etc. actually “baked” on and harder to scrub off. :(

    • jerilyn

      I probably do 3-5 loads per week.

      I haven't tried the two-colored ones but the action packs are worth the extra money- it saves me time and time is money! :)

    • kestermom

      I run about 10 loads of dishes a week.

    • Brittney

      I do about 13 loads a week. Baby bottles, making my own baby food and a family that children are kept in my home all week. :)

    • summs78

      I run the dishwasher about three times a week (there's only two adults and an infant in our house) but we always have problems with spots and dishes having a film on them! It's so frustrating to me and my hubby. I would love to try this!

    • toma

      I run at least 1 load a day!!!!!!

    • andrea

      I am a single woman who cooks alot. It takes me 2-3 days to fill up my dishwasher (I average 3 loads per week). By Day 2/3 stuff is really stuck on my dishes and I'm constantly rewashing even though I rinse in advance. I would love to know if this would work on my dishes that have been in there for days.

    • betharp

      I run it once a week, mostly do the plastics by hand. I would run it more if I had the Cascade Action Pacs!

    • Tonya McC

      I usually run 6 loads a week. I hate having to wash them before putting them in the dishwasher, but like you my relationship with my dishwasher isn't anything to brag about!

    • Jenn_D

      I probably do 5-6 loads of dishes a week.

    • Msmada

      I run my dishwasher about 4-5 times a week. I have used this product before and have noticed the difference in my dishes. I would love to receive this giveaway for more Cascade Action Pacs.

    • Mitzi

      Currently, I have a household of six. Ten months ago, we took in another family who had loss theirs in foreclosure. Thus, taking us from a 3 person household to a six – so needless to say we run our dishwasher a lot. We average about 1-2 loads a day and more than that in the way of laundry. By the way, any laundry detergent giveaways??

    • Burke2010

      We run the dishwasher 5-6 times a week! I'd love to try the Cascade Action Pacs! :-)

    • kkscarlett

      For our family of four, we run about 2 loads a week. My husband would LOVE for me not to make him prewash everything, would like to give cascade complete a try.

    • Anna

      on average 5 loads per week.

    • bj wildey

      Nine loads a week!

    • janet87

      I do 7-8 loads per week!

    • debbie

      2 sometimes 3 times a week. Would love to be able to love my dishwasher again.

    • We do a load everyday so thats 7 and sometimes we do 2 loads a day. We probably average 9 to 11 loads a week. Thats my sons job and he complains everyday. I told him that if he wouldnt dirty so many dishes he wouldnt have to do them all the time.

    • Lily

      I pre-rinse by hand too due to past experience and would love to try this. We do dishes once a day after dinner so that totals about 7 a week unless we eat out which is rare.

    • Cynthia Hofacker

      There are only two of us, so I do about two loads a week. If I am too lazy to rinse them well, they get crusty sitting in the dishwasher(which is 11years old). I need a super dishwasher detergent!

    • mommaluv

      I run my dish washer about 6 times a week. I spend forever pre-scrubbing and soaking dishes. I'd LOVE to try this product!

    • kristenirwin

      I run around 7-8 loads a week.

    • Crystal

      I have 4-5 loads of dishes in a week's time.

    • Donella

      Neither myself or my husband like to hand wash, so we're doing 7 loads of dishes in the dishwasher a week….but sometimes it could be 10!

    • Dawn

      Mine usually runs once a day. I actually just got done loading it and everything did not fit in, so I'll have to hand wash a few things. Great Giveaway!

    • amystew

      With my family of 6 we run the diswasher every day and sometimes two times a day—so average about 9 times a week.

    • Christie

      I run 4-5 loads a week. I refuse to handwash!

    • carolc23

      Maybe two a week, but we're not quite in the house full time yet either. I always prewash – especially for anything cheesy. It's a brand new dishwasher. We've been going through a pack of the walmart version of little gel pack thingies. Still have to prewash using them. I'd love to not spend time rinsing!!

    • Ashley

      I run a load every night before I go to bed and empty it first thing in the morning. I do feel like I have to prewash every dish I put in so I would love to try Cascade complete! Thanks!

    • amylaurenscott

      We run about 2-3 loads a week. It's just me and my roommate, and we eat out a pretty good bit. Plus we always wait until the dishwasher is completely full :).

    • wpsmiles2

      I rum a load every couple of days, but run the rinse cycle when I add in dishes. I would love to be more GREEN and save on energy/water by not running the rinse cycle before I wash a load of dishes!

    • i have bought cascade actionpacs 3 times and yes they leave your dishes sparkling. I run mine around 5 times a wk. Hope you pick me!!!

    • Kellie

      Approximately 4 times per week.

    • shasham72

      I do about 7 loads a week. We fill it all day and turn it on before bed. Gotta love your dishwasher!

    • Megan

      I have yet to try the action pacs but use Cascade Complete already. We run the dishwasher nearly every day—-I don't wash anything by hand (unless it is fine china which only comes out a few times a year). I'd say 5-6 loads a week and it will be more soon with baby #2 coming next week!

    • Stephanie Scarborough

      Never prerinse, have always used cascade complete. No other dishwashing detergent stacks up. Plus you don't have a god awful smell when the dishwasher is running. The company is also great in fixing any problems with product.

      We run 7-10 loads a week, depends on how much cooking I do or entertaining.

    • MeganHe

      I run 3-4 dishwasher loads a week. I would love to try the new action pacs so that I don't have to pre-scrub the crusty dishes! Eww!

    • Lauren

      Usually once a day. I'd love to have a chance to restore my relationship with my dishwasher.

    • festas20

      I run my dishwasher every other day… There are only three of us but it stays full!! I almost wash every dish before loading into my pre-historic dishwasher. I am currenlty using Electrasol but would love to try these. Thanks!!!

    • cdzgrls

      I run my dishwasher daily on normal weeks. Some days I may run it a few times. I also have a questionable dishwasher where rinsing is necessary.

    • SweetDenia

      Wow – wouldn't I love to not have to “wash the dishes” BEFORE I wash the dishes! I got a sample of this in my USPS sample kit, so I think I'll try the same experiment. I do 5-7 loads per week.

    • anhoover

      I run 6-7 loads of dishes a day. With two small kids, there are lots of bottles, sippy cups, and other misc items to wash. I would love to try the cascade pacs to see how they work. Have a great day!

    • hd

      We run it 7 times a week

    • KimberlyNicoleBrown

      I do about 6 loads a week!

    • cindy s

      7 per week, once night around here ;(

    • Tori

      I run my dishwasher every other night!!

    • lovesavingmoney

      I have never tried it but I am always looking for something to make my life just alittle easier. I run atleast 7 loads of dishes a week. sometimes upwards to 14.

    • MrsK

      We probably run the dishwasher about 5 times a week. We still pre-rinse our dishes.

    • denisejeter

      About 4 times a week.

    • Jennifer

      We only do 1 or 2 loads a week since our dishwasher always leaves stuff on the dishes. That's right – we hand wash A LOT!

    • Aman5000

      As much as I can, I try to keep up with my family and their eating habits! I run about 6 loads all together from Sunday to Saturday. I normally use the cascade liquid because I can find it a bit cheaper than the packs. I hear the packs work real well and according to these comments I am missing out on them!

    • Shelley Patterson

      I run the dishwasher 4-5 times per week.

    • kjmiller

      About 5 times a week. (I hate handwashing, but I do it for most plastics since my friend had a disaster with a plastic bowl melting in her dishwasher!). Since I don't run the thing every day, I definitely have a harder time getting everything clean. Would love to try these!

    • narrowgate

      The dishwasher usually fills up after 4 meals, so it runs 5-6 times a week here.

    • jessica kent

      my house is always full of teenagers and small kids so i have to run my dishwasher one to three times a day 7 days a week

    • Julie Q

      I try my best to conserve water and cut down on running the dish washer until absolutely necessary. I'm a great packer, so I tend to organize my dishes in the rack so as to use every available inch. This has resulted in us being able to only run the dish washer once per week. My challenge is getting the silverware to come out clean. I have a real problem with achieving clean spoons, though we pre wash everything! I've had my eye on this product and am very excited to read your results. I would LOVE to test this out!

    • heidi

      I would love to try these out – they sound amazing!! We run ours through 3-4 times per week.

    • hsvmom

      Feeding 3 teenage sons, girlfriends and any other friends looking for a good meal, I often run 2 loads of dishes a day. I would love to try the new Cascade and see if it can keep up with the dishes these kids can use and often leave in the sink over night for me to “discover” in the morning with dried on food. To not have to soak and prewash those dished would be great!!!

    • 6 a week

    • Michelle

      I do about 2-3 times a week.

    • Suzanne

      We run about a load a day.

    • Jeremy

      We do 2-3 loads a week

    • dpcat

      I pretty much average 1 load per day. Depends on the week. Don't know about putting stuck on cobbler in the dishwasher without prescrubbing…it goes against my nature! =)

    • shellybee33

      I do about 7 loads a week. I am constantly telling my thirteen yr. old to rinse the dishes first. Thing is we have to pay for water so it is not very efficient. Can something really clean the dishes without rinsing first? I'd like to see.

    • godawgs428

      I am in need of repair in my dishwasher relationship as well! :)

    • ctet0731

      I do 7-8 loads a week and still was a lot by hand. We have a 7 of us in the house. I can't wait to try Cascade Action Pacs!

    • Michelle

      I pretty much wash my dishes before I load them in the dishwasher, too. If these work that great, it would be a huge time-saver!!

    • clairewait

      Hah. Great story.

      2-3 loads a week. Up to 4 if I choose not to handwash any plastic.

    • juliekent

      About 8 a week. Lots of dishes around here!

    • Karen

      We run our dishwasher about 8 times a week.

    • janalpierce

      I bet I do 10 loads a week!

    • Meme

      How many loads of dishes a week? Well, seven to eight (and that is packed full) or several a day when twenty four of us are all here for a family visit. Any hints on becoming a tester for these products?

    • Jessica

      Typically, we run the dishwasher twice a week. I definitely have to try these out. After sitting in the dishwasher a few days, everything gets fairly “caked” on.

    • BrandyGhaus

      Unfortunately I run at least 7 loads a week! We have the same relationship w/our dishwasher as well, however; I've only had success with electrosol powertabs so I would love to see if Cascade action pacs would work as well! It's nice to have options when couponing…thank you!!

    • dannysangel

      I run my dishwasher everyday. With a husband, @ teenage sons & a 10 yr old son, I don't have much choice.

    • brandi

      we do 7 and some weeks 8 around here. we seem to go through a lot of dishes.

    • I have had my “rolling dishwasher for 17 years.” I purchased it new for my “new”house”. It is a love and hate relationship. For some reason it decides to stop working or cleaning totally or to dump all the water in my floor randomly. At that point we usually start talking about getting a new one and just as I decided to try one last load it works and the cycle starts again!

    • teaparty24

      I run the dishwasher 7 times a week, but if I'm baking, catering and doing tea parties I may run it up to 12 times a week!

    • Jennifer Smith

      I have an old dishwasher and run about 6 loads a week for 7 people in the family. I bet that stuff can't hold up to the Smith household!

    • Renee

      I run the dishwasher every couple of days. Not much for a family of five, but it's because my dishes have to be prescrubbed like yours and I just think it's easier for the kids and I to do most of them by hand. I hope I win just to see if there really is a product that will get my dishes clean. Thanks for the opportunity!

    • dr. coupon

      I, too, wash everyday – with kids, I think it's a must

    • Stephanie Craycraft

      I am a full time working Mom and that comes home to a wonderul husband, 3 year old twins and a 1 year old…and yes, they are all boys…………..so we run our dishwasher EVERY DAY……….and YES it is ALWAYS a full load…..we run it right before heading to bed…………..so that is one load a day (sometimes more on the weekends if I am doing MORE cooking) seven days a week, 52 weeks a year…..wow, my dishwasher really gets a work out!!!! (and YIKES, the boys aren't even teenagers yet!!!!)

    • ginger

      I run about 4 loads a week and only use
      cascade complete. I love it!

    • karenzak

      I run it at least 7 times a week — sometimes it's more like 8 or 9!!

    • clucas3

      I run about 4 loads of dishes a week.

    • ereka

      I run the dishwasher about 5 times per week.

    • gigglemom

      I do 6 to 7 loads in my dishwasher a week & I do rinse them before I load them. I couldn't imagine not doing so. It was my understanding that the only way not to rinse them first would be to set the dishwasher on pot scrubber which uses tons more hot water (making it not very cost affective, verses rinsing first in cold water.) I would be very impressed if I could use Cascade action and run the dishwasher on the regular cycle. Thus the reason I have never thought the cost of these pacs worth paying for.

    • coughs1

      I do about 14 loads of dishes a week (yes, two loads a day)! Family of 6 and we eat home a lot!!

    • Amanda74

      5 times a week…

    • emarsh6711

      We run 7-9 loads a week here. I wanna try this stuff!

    • AnnJ

      I run my dishwasher 7 times/week…every day!

    • Stephanie

      I run at least seven loads a week.

    • 7 times a week.

    • Alison

      I run 4-6 loads every week. Making everything from scratch and baking uses lots of dishes. Not to mention the kids think they need a different glass for every different kind of drink.

    • heathermeier

      With my 3 kids' various snacks and meals, I run mine once a day at least and more if I entertain. 7 times a week! I try to save money by not buying paper products– but it really stinks when the dishes don't come out clean! We take food to my church every Sunday and eat there and I try to sneak in my baking dishes from time to time, but rarely do they come out clean. I would love to try this product and see how well it really works. Your story about the blueberry cobbler is amazing!

    • jcchtc

      All the children are home from college, so including their friends I cooked for 12 people at least one time a day and sometimes two time son the weekends. I try to just wash them all by hand to avoid buying stuff so i wash comstantly. I would love a gift card and then I could turn the dishwasher on again.

    • Amanda Beckett

      I run the dishwasher 7-8 times a week and it is only myself, my husband and my 8year old. HHMMMMM….we may need to switch to paper :)

    • MyBoxoRox

      Impressive! We avg washing 4 loads a week. So our dishes sit overnight usually before filling the dishwasher completely on the second day and then running it. We don't want to run it for half a load.

    • Deb

      Just HD and myself-we do 2 each week.
      He washes some by hand in between :0)

      • Deb

        Sorry-that would be DH :)

    • Jo

      1 or 2 times weekly

    • Chrissy

      We probably average 3 loads per week.

    • Brandi

      We do one load of dishes a day. And we are thrilled to have a dishwasher. For the past seven years we have hand washed and at our new house we actually have a dishwasher. We have two kids under the age of two and I keep my niece and nephew three days a week so we have lots of dishes. :)

    • Caroline

      We do about 4 loads a week for a family of 5.

    • bonnie

      i do at least 6 loads of dishes each week. basically one a day, but sometimes i take a day off and let the sink pile up.

    • Katie

      We run about 6-7 loads of dishes a week

    • Beth

      I wash one load a day. Three kids x 3 meals per day is lots of dirty dishes!

    • 3-4 a week

    • kathihill

      I run the dishwasher once a day – sometimes more often on weekends!

    • Kathy

      I run the diswasher at least 4 times a week.

    • amberveuleman

      About a load a day! That makes 7

    • one a day . . . seven loads a week!

    • Kelly

      About 3 times a week…sometimes more if we have Sunday dinner at our house!

    • Mindy

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day. So about seven loads a day.

    • skunkie

      I do 1 to 2 loads a week

    • lo1987

      after reading how many times people run there dishwasher a week…geez…10+ wow!

      I will have to say I probably run my dishwasher about 2-3 times a week- there is myself and one other that live there (so 2 people). My spouse is has to have everything spotless (no joke). So when we go and put stuff in the dishwash- we pretty much wash them by hand first (haha) and then put them in there- he doesnt like to put them in the dishwasher with any kind of food on it- “it wont clean the dishes” is the famous quote! :) so I would love to give cascade action pacs a try and see if they can meet his expectations! :)

    • kandamom2

      I run the dishwasher 7 or 8 times a week. plus, some of the pots and pans are washed by hand.

    • teacherspet84

      Typically 4 times a week…. if I'm lucky!

    • Michele

      I do 7 loads a week and there is only 2 of us!

    • skunkie

      I do 1 to 2 loads a week

    • Marianna

      At least 7 if not more!

    • gritsmommy

      We have five kids and we run ours everyday… So 6-7 times per week!

    • singmeganlea

      Um ok I don't feel worthy of the prize after seeing some of these comments. I do 1-2 loads of dishes per week. Single female who works full time so I'm not home alot to dirty them up but would still love to try it!

    • christelhannigan

      I have four children, all of which are home all day, everyday…we are homeschoolers. Lots of dirty dishes are around here. At the least we use the dishwasher twice a day. Probably should more but I just get tired of the cleanup – all the time.

    • Vicki

      We are a family of 8. On an average week…10-12 times. I would love to try it!!! :)

    • Danielle

      On average, I run the dishwasher once a day, so that makes 7 times a week.

    • Karen Freeman

      I'm a stay-at-home mom with a toddler and a baby. Between the sippy cups, the bottles, and eating mostly at home (to cut back on extra spending) I probably run the dishwasher every other day and sometimes every day. And I've been saving so much thanks to Southern Savers! You have been one of the best things that's happened to my family!

    • Nat

      The amount of loads depends on whether I load the dishwasher or my husband does. If him, seven+ times a week. If me, three or so times a week. I pack it efficiently.

    • Melanie

      Probably 3 times a week.

    • angiea

      2-3 times a week. Sometimes more

    • bdvcarter

      5-6 times a week. Why is it you can never find a clean kids sippy cup?

    • Cherise

      About 3 loads a week. I try to prewash everything or it won't come out clean! I wash all big pots by hand and because I prewash it all I tend to wash the large stuff by hand. SO I would be more than willing to do more washes if the dishes would come clean!!!

    • Teshanna

      3-4. I wash pots and the kids things by hand alot since we go through them so fast. It also saves water!!

    • daynamiller

      We have 4 kids who would love some home-made blueberry cobbler. We run about 14 loads of dishes a week.

    • Tonia

      Normally one a day but at least 6 per week! And I make sure it is FULL!!! And I don't rinse before I wash – it's a waste of water to do so.

    • We, generally, will run a full load through our compact dishwasher once each weekday so that's 5 loads per week.

    • jhooks4

      I usually do about 4 loads a week.

    • septmac

      I run one load through my dishwasher each day. Would really enjoy giving that product a try.

    • evd

      our dishwasher sucks, so I have to rise everything first–so there there is no leftover food or grease–we do 7 load/wk

    • shannon

      I run mine about 6-7 times a week. I usually pre rinse everything and would love to try that.

    • I run the dishwasher at least once a day, probably twice on 2 days a week since I can't fit all the dishes in the first load. So i would say 9 times a week. We try to cook each night instead of eating out to save money so the dishes pile up quickly around here. I would love to see if the Cascade Pacs can allow me to fill my dishwasher to max capacity and and still have each one come out clean!

    • Mandy

      I run a minimum of 7 loads per week, mostly averaging about 10.

    • redheadshopper

      I run a load of dishes everyday. We are a busy on the go family who eats at home. My dish washer gets a workout!

    • tommysmom

      I do about 10 loads a week. I would love to see how these work. My dishwasher leaves food on the dishes.

    • Kristen

      I bet I run a load a day! Between the kids and the people we have coming and going in our house the dishwasher is ALWAYS full!
      Hope I get to try it for free!
      Thanks!
      K

    • Amy Greene

      I do 1-2 loads a day! I have 3 boys and a husband that just dont understand the concept of using the same glass all day!

    • Traci F

      We do 3-4 loads per week.

    • sanford_C

      At least 8 loads a week.

    • emily0780

      Cool giveaway! We probably do three or four loads in our dishwasher a week… the hubby and I are probably a little odd that are still so many things we prefer to wash by hand! :)

    • tmcaninch

      Although there are only 3 sometimes 4 people eating at my home, we run the dishwasher every other to every day. The problem is my husband puts EVERTHING in there, so sometimes the dishes are clean and sometimes not so much. Could use the incentive to try this product out.

    • tori

      I do between 8 and 10 loads of dishes per week

    • Janice

      We run our non-stop ! 9-11 times per week and always have to wash/rinse first would LUV to try this !

    • yumiaoabc

      We run between 1 to 2 loads a day.

    • tooleyv

      With 3 small ones and 3 adults who love to cook and eat about 12-14 loads a week.

    • jessica

      I would say atleast 5 loads!

    • Pam

      I run my dishwasher 3 times a week and it would be more but I hand wash some because I need them before I get a load washed. I am new to the couponing and I am loving your site and the work you put into it. I have become addicted to it now. We are blocked from looking at it at work now; can you believe that? LOL I am trying to find a way to be able to stay at home again before my kids leave for college.

    • Danielle

      I would say probably a minimum of 7/week. I'm constantly running the dishwasher. I'd love to try these, they sound great!

    • Maranda

      I run the dishwasher once a day.

    • Sasha

      I only have to do 1 a week. When my brother and law and his girlfriend was living with us it was 2. No kids.

    • Denise

      I do about between 7and 10 loads a week. Great giveaway!!!

    • taranvk

      Once a day

    • Debbie

      It's just my daughter and me, so I usually only run the dishwasher once or twice a week. I hand wash all of my bigger items like pots, pans, serving bowls.

    • b12mommy

      5-10 loads a week! Thanks for these great opportunities to win!

    • MEL

      We tend to prescrub everything which is half the battle of washing so we only run 1-2 times a week. With this we may be using it more!

    • mcwfamily

      We are a family of 6 and we go through a lot of dishes! We run it about 10 or more times a week just depending on who loads it.

    • gennefir

      I've got four people who eat and cook all for themselves. We are a 7 loads a week family for sure!

    • Michelle

      I think I do about 3-4 a week. :) But for a house of only 2 thats kinda alot if you ask me!!

    • chaliz

      I run my dishwasher about 10 times a week. It is one of my most favorite appliances (next to my washing machine)!

    • Janice

      I do anywhere from 7 to 10 loads per week. I have infant twins and I have to wash a ton of bottles daily. My two year old son also goes through many sippy cups!!! Sometimes I only fill the top rack of my dishwasher because of all the bottles and cups.

    • joybuyer

      We generally run the dishwasher every day – that way the dirty dishes don't sit in the dishwasher, becuase they never come out clean if they sit too long!

    • robinporter

      I am running a load as we speak! At least 2 a day. one in the am and one in the pm

    • Jennifer White

      We usually wash our dishes by hand, but I would love to be able to use my dishwasher again! I just haven't been able to find a good detergent!

    • Whmartin

      I do a minimum of 7 loads a week. I do have days that I have to run them through twice because the first time didn't get them clean. I even rinse before putting them in. I am pregnant and have two other children and I just don't have time for this. I have since began to hand wash the dishes to save water. If I could do a load a day I know that my water bill would go down as well. I hope I get this gift, so that I can try these out. Hopefully they work.

    • Stacie

      We usually run about a load a day around our house! Thanks so much for all you do!

    • We do about 2

    • lsmith3377

      We are a family of 7 and I run the dishwasher an average of 10-12 times a week!

    • Ginger

      My dishwasher is getting put in next week! I can't wait and have been trying to decide on what to use in it. How great would it be to win it!!! I will probably run 3 loads a week.

    • Snowski824

      We wash about 3 times a week if it's just the two of us but when we entertain a lot it might be 5-6 times a week.

    • Laura

      Usually a couple loads a week…i must confess when haven't been doing a lot of “good cooking” around our house lately!

    • Kelly

      I run a load once a day so thats 7 days a week! :)

    • SSheila

      My husband is on a special diet and I make all my own baby food. Lets just say I'm in the kitchen A LOT! I would say that I run my dishwasher about once a day and I also hand-wash all dishes that just won't fit for that day. And, I definitely pre-scrub everything that goes in. This would be so awesome to win!

    • One a day, minimum! So at least seven a week!

    • msuweather

      I do about two loads of dishes a week.

    • anland1005

    • Dana

      I run the dishwasher every other day so about 3-4 times a week.

    • jlnails

      I do about 4-5 loads a week. I must admit I am truly in love with Cascade Complete. You really can leave food and the dishes and they will be sparkling clean when you take them out and the food magically disappears.

    • Mrs. G

      I usually only have 2 or 3 loads a week. It's just the hubster and me!

    • Amy

      At least 3 loads

    • Jane

      3 times a week.

    • Laura

      At least 3 and there are only 2 people living in our home!

      I have 5 kids and run the dishwasher 2-3 times everyday. Lots of fun, but Praise the LORD for a dishwasher???

    • Chellep78

      Well, do I count the dishes at my parents house too? I seem to run the dishwasher there too! I do 10-14 loads a week!

    • Caroline

      There is only two of us, so we run every other day, sometimes more, so 4-5 times a week!

    • sing4jc17

      I run the dishwasher about 3-4 times a week…great giveaway!

    • Lindsay

      I run 2 or 3 loads of dishes week.

    • dyemiola

      I read this and I was shocked! Run a dishwasher without pre-scrubbing the dishes?! UNHEARD OF! We are a family of two but my fiance goes through dishes like he is a family of four. Thankfully we have a large sized dishwasher and only have to run it about 3 times a week but with all the messes he makes, I would love to not have to scrub and scrub every dish I have to put in there!

    • brent42

      We run ours 4-5 times a week, but have to pre-rinse everything.

    • Ashley

      I run mine around 4 to 5 times a week. I'd use more paper plates if I could find a good deal w/ coupons on some! Maybe you'll tell me where to get some soon!

      Thanks,

      Ashley

    • Kim

      My dishwasher runs twice a week, and could run three but we are too busy/lazy to unload it any more so the other dishes sit in the sink….

    • lisastafford

      I run my dishwasher 7 – 8 times per week. It is about 10 years old, and my dishes are no longer getting clean with regular detergent. I would love to try Cascade Action Pacs.

    • LauraBo

      We run at least 10 loads a week…sometimes more.

    • Janelle

      3-4 loads a week.

    • mel

      Maybe twice a week, sometimes three.

    • MomOf4Blessings

      I usually run two or three loads a week in my dishwasher, depending upon how much I cook vs. how much we eat out. I'd love to try the Cascade Action packs!

      Thanks!

    • jackie

      I probably do 4 loads a week. The first 7 years of marriage I didn't have one. I am very thankful to have one now.

    • karagriff

      I was probably around 6 loads of dishes a week! thanks!

    • lmhaney

      I have a family of soon to be 6, and we have to run the dishwasher everyday. On days that the grandparents come over we have to often run it twice. Lots of dishes here!!

    • sammie0706

      I run the dishwasher once every other day.

    • Jen

      I do 2 loads every day! We are a family of 5 that eats at home almost always and I babysit during the day. I would love to try the new Cascade Complete, because there are so many times that I find “not so clean” dishes tucked away in the cabinets when its my 11 year old sons turn to unload the dishwasher.

    • Sarah Mullins

      I run mine almost everyday so at least 7 loads a week.

    • Kristin

      3-4 loads per week

      We run the dish washer abut 4 times per week

    • AMNitsche

      A week? With two kids (one at home and one in school), a hubby and me, our dishwasher does at least a load a night. Maybe it gets one day off! :)

    • Laura

      I run it on average once a day, sometimes every other day. This sounds crazy given that there's only two of us, but I'm at home and I cook and bake a *lot*. So naturally I go through dishwasher detergent like you wouldn't believe.

    • shanespell

      I run two loads a DAY, seven days a week. Sometimes, I run the dishwasher and hand wash the other load. I have 5 kids, so that's a lot of dishes!!

    • Stacy

      We run the dishwasher every night after dinner, so that makes it 7 loads a week.

    • trwilkin

      we run 1 load a day…

    • Boo'sMama

      With a hungry toddler, we usually run the dishwasher daily. Unfortunately, we live in Nashville and are facing water restrictions due to the flooding which means 4 days (and counting) with no dishwasher (not to mention laundry and a proper shower)!

    • erikajfoster

      I'm not sure how a baby can generate so many dishes, but I went from running the dishwasher twice a week to running it every day!

    • Lisa

      I run about 6 loads a week and hate to rinse prior to running my dishwasher! I tried the Quantum detergent holder with the last coupons special but it was not good at cleaning stuck on food!!! I always buy Cascade but have never tried the new Cascade Complete! I would love to see if it is even better than regular Cascade. i love the little packets too they smell soooo good! ( New apple scent is nice)

    • Suzanne

      I have a very lovely freestanding Maytag dishwasher and I am so lucky that it cleans really well, I NEVER have to scrub my dishes! I love Cascade but haven't tried the action pacs yet, for the 2 of us we run the dishwasher about 5 times a week!

    • eeratt65

      1 load every night!!! SO 7 times a week.

    • Elizabeth M.

      We run ours 3-4 times per week. We should run it more, but for some reason, I like loading it much more than emptying it.

    • stefwoolverton

      WOW, 1 gift and right now 992 entries.. those aren't good odds! I run my dishwasher about 4 times a week, every other day or so. I sort of prewash my dishes before they go in the dishwasher. I always assumed I didn't have a powerful enough sprayer in the dishwasher – I would be REALLY curious to see if something like this worked for me. Thanks.

    • lizziewheat

      My dishwasher gets run probably 3 times a week.

    • jess

      Just me and my bf run the dishwasher about once a day, or maybe once every 2 days if we go out to eat.

    • I do 7 loads a week. I currantly use amways soap because I like it better then anything else I've tried. It is more expensive tho. :( I'd be delighted to find something that does the job for less $!!

    • lsmajor

      We run it 7 – 8 times a week, and we too have to scrub everything, the dishes are practically clean when we put them in there!

    • Kimberly

      I run my dishwasher about 2-3 times a week, however, I constantly have a pile of dishes drying on my counter because I scrub them and don't put them in the dishwasher (it won't get them clean). Would love to try this product and save time, plus get those dishes off my counter!

    • bree clayton

      I run 2 loads a week (should be more) :)

    • smbrunelli

      I do about 7 loads of dishes in my dishwasher per week!

    • catie516

      I run about one a day and would love to have the same results you found! I've got a stockpile of Finish, is it better than the Finish?

    • Heather

      I run the dishwasher at least 2 times a day!! Sometimes more..

    • eplusm

      I run out dishwasher at least 7 times a week! Sometimes on the weekend I may run it twice a day. My husband and I have three boys and they think everytime they use a glass they have to get a new one when they are thirsty again! They also don't like paper plates for some reason so we dirty up alot of dishes!

    • ddflamingo

      we run ours at least 5 times a week.

    • christine west

      we run our dishwasher twice a day. maybe even three times a day. bottles and sippy cups take up most of the dishwasher!! i wish we had two top shelves!!

    • beverlyw29

      7-8 loads a week

    • Sarah

      I run the dishwasher about 3 times/week. And I LOVE Cascase!

    • Wendy

      I do anywhere from 5 to 7 loads a week. Then I also hand wash my pots and pans and whatever won't fit into the dishwasher. It would be nice to receive this gift and be able to try it. My present dishwasher detergent isn't doing such a good job and I'm having to clean some dishes a second time. :( But I'm someone who doesn't want to waste, so I'm stuck with it until it runs out. Thank you for this special opportunity.

      I do about 12 loads a week!!! would love a product that keeps me from washing them before i put them in the dishwasher!!

    • Shawn

      2 loads per week and usually don't unload until it's time to load another! :)

    • Wow! I would have been skeptical too, but that is amazing. I usually run the diswasher 2 or 3 times a week.

    • Jordan W.

      We run the dishwasher at least 4 times and maybe 5 times a week.

    • We do 3-4 loads of dishes in the dishwasher a week. I have gotten very good at loading it to maximum capacity to cut down on the amount of water and energy used each week. My husband on the other hand….not so much :)

    • Brenda Sessoms

      I may run my dishwasher daily unless we are out of town. It is a never ending cycle for a large family. Thanks.

    • janellewilder

      I run my dishwasher at least 2 maybe three times a day. So roughly 14 times a week. I have two toddlers (2 and 3 y.o.) and a baby (9mths). Each toddler uses 6 sippy cups and 2 snack trap cups each day, and then their dinner/lunch and breakfast dishes. I cook every night for dinner and sometimes cook for lunch. Being a stay at home mother of three, I use my dishwasher a lot. I feel kind of bad for wasting so much water, but between diaper changes, I don't have time to handwash dishes and keep up with all of our laundry for five too.

    • Ladyink

      Run it 4 to 5 times a week…Depends on how many of the 4 kids are around!

    • momsdword1

      I usually run my dishwasher three times a week for our family of 3. I usually wash larger bowls and pots by hand, so that I have space for other dishes.

    • BunnyFabulous

      I run my dishwasher 6-7 times per week. Only 3 people, but with all the cooking I do it fills up fast. Would love to try these.

    • dawn

      i run the dishwasher once a day, so that makes for 7 times a week… Cascade is my favorite dishwasher soap too!

    • Cathy

      We do at least one load of dishes per day… sometimes Two.

    • We run the dishwasher probably more than we should, at least 6-7 loads a week.

    • I run mine once a day..7 times in a week..Thanks for the contest. Good luck everyone…

    • jane

      I probably do about five per week.

    • Lindsey

      We use our dishwasher about 3 times per week

    • tkonitz

      We run it about twice a week.

    • claire

      I typically run a load a day, as well as hand wash several pieces. The only exception to this is if we are out of town or if my husband is working a double…I tend to not cook big meals when he's not home since my children are still pretty young, so when's he on a double and gone for 48 hours…well…we live on pb&j or hotdogs, lol!

    • Jamie

      On average… 4 to 5 a week.

    • creames

      I use my dishwasher about 3 times a week. Love these packs.

    • I run the dishwasher once, sometimes twice a day. THe average is about 8 times per week. I always use the best…Cascade. I got two action pack samples a few days ago and they do work wonderful.

    • downs1418

      With a new baby and a small apartment, washing dishes is a daily chore. Between baby food, last night's casserole, and tonight's mystery meat, the dishes are continually in a state a flux. It is not uncommon for us to do 5 washes a week.

    • Ms. T

      With a full load at school and work, I've been running the dishwasher 3 times per week. I just switched to another brand recently after seeing how well it worked. so, I'm intrigued to see how well these new Cascade Action Pacs product perform.

    • Susanne

      Probably 4 or 5 loads a week!

    • Carrie

      I run mine 2 times a week.

    • Karen

      We typically run around 10-14 loads if we eat every meal at home. (this is usually the case- we have a family of six)

    • Ashley

      I usually only run the dishwasher 4 times a week. It would be less if my husband didn't use a plate for everything! (ie – he won't eat a sandwich off of a paper towel). :)

    • Beth

      We run about 5 to 6 loads a week.

    • Jennifer D

      I run about 2-3 loads in my dishwasher every week.

    • Tracey

      I usually run about 2-3 loads per week.

    • sarae_25

      7 …. always 7!!! I always run the dishwasher right before I head up to bed…. and trust me… its ALWAYS full!

    • Paige Gregg

      I run our dishwasher 7-10 times per week depending on how much we cook over the weekend. But definitely once per day.

    • lpowell77

      When the kids are in school I run mine once or twice a day. Summer time with 5 kids and friends 2 to 3 times. UHG!!

    • Laura P

      I run about 5-7 loads a week.

    • ajinfinger

      i run 5-6 loads every week. pretty much one a day and still have to hand wash some bigger items

    • Cat

      We run it every day of the week.

    • Chamisa

      I used to have a love-hate relationship with my dishwasher. Now, that's melted into mostly hate. It's old and doesn't belong to me (we live in an apartment), so we are stuck with each other. Consequently, I only run my dishwasher once/week to sanitize everything that we hand wash on a daily basis. My husband calls it the extra large drying rack. Getting a Cascade Action Pac might restore all kinds of relationships in our house!!

    • deannemk

      I run my dishwasher at least once everyday and sometimes twice a day. So, anywhere from 7-10 times a week. Free detergent would be AWESOME!!!

    • 8 Loads for me! At least one a day and usually there is at least one, if not two days that I run two!

    • Anita

      We average 7 loads per week, one each day.

    • KatieKat

      4-6 loads a week

    • AmerEagle84

      We run about 4 loads a week, but sometimes it feels like 8 or 12 because we have to wash them all before and wash some of them after. I am so glad your experience was good… I think I have a coupon for this too!

    • mchavis

      I run my dishwasher about six times a week :))

    • Linda

      i use my dishwasher once a week

    • amyinsc

      We probably run 6-7. I don't even know if that is normal or way too high for a family of 4! But I use a lot of dishes and such when I cook.

    • Tammy

      We run it about once a day. I LOVE the Action Pacs!

    • Ashley

      About 3 or 4 times a week. As my baby grows and more kids come along, I imagine that number will continue to increase.

    • haileyR

      We run our dishwasher about 3-4 times per week.

    • Amy

      We should do 7 but normally it's only 5 or 6

    • Linda

      i don't use it often but would love the walmart card and try it

    • Mariah

      I do at least 7 a week and it is just me and two kids. I bake….A LOT and I HATE handwashing dishes.

      I would gladly make some blueberry cobbler…well it would be mixed berries, surely that would make it even dirtier!

    • kcpaulk

      Well with snack bowls (my kids have to have a bowl for some reason for EVERYTHING), sippy cups, regular cups, water bottles, and the MUCH needed coffee mugs AT LEAST once a day! I have become a master loader so I don't have to run it more than once due to energy costs etc!

    • Jody

      I run my dishwasher 7 times a week…some times I run it twice a day if I have a lot of dishes!!!!

    • charlab1990

      I run a load a day if not 2.

    • Gena

      We run about 1 load per day.

    • deltacrzr

      I usualloy run my dishwasher 4 to 5 times a week, except this week my husband re-ran a load of jsut-washed dishes because he thought they were dirty!

    • I do 5-6 loads every week. One a day sometimes… and still have to hand wash someof the bigger items. Thanks for the Op.

    • juliegalloway

      We probably run about three (we have to wash baby bottles almost every other day!!)

    • laura

      I do a load everyday

    • carrisaallen

      I run mine twice a week. I love the action packs. I never have to prewash my dishes when using them.

    • tnashis11

      7 loads per week! But I wouldn't mind them so much if I had the same experience and didn't have to scrub everything first :-)

    • renatajohansen

      I run my dishwasher once everyday Free detergent AWESOME!!!

    • christie

      I have Five Kids 4 being teenagers so im luck if i run mine less than twice a day but I know I'm sure glad I have a dishwasher or id be washing dishes all day everday

    • savers1

      2 loads per week.

    • Jenny

      I run at least one load a day, and usually two on the weekends when everybody's home. :o)

    • kaity107

      We use the dishwasher everynight (7 days a week). On holidays or weekend get togethers we run twice a day.

    • Julie Gilliland

      8 per week

    • camper3

      I usually do 4 loads a week. My house didn't come with a dishwasher so for 6 years I had to hand wash everything so I love my dishwasher!

    • Unfortunately, I have to run the dishwasher every day.

    • Jill

      only one or two load a week b/c i have to prewash all dishes and its just not worth it!

    • sdavisva

      We run ours every other day – but do a lot of hand washing. In an effort to save money, I tried making homemade detergent but I didn't find it cleaned enough. So of course now I just try to buy on sale with a coupon!

    • starlight_1011

      1-2 loads a day

    • jazecher

      So I run a load about everyday (if I don't I should) but why I think I should get the opportunity is not based on how many loads I run but on how long the food sits on the plates on the table or counter before they make it to the dishwasher. Unfortunately this is probably where I've got other mommy's beat. I usually get around to cleaning my dishes and clearing the table after 20 hours….sad but true. Got to clear enough space before we have to do homework.

    • Mimi1979

      I usually do one load a day. Thanks!!

    • jmthacker

      I run mine at least 7 times a week. I would be skeptical too. I like your comments and would love to give it a try.

    • Rachel

      I am mom to 2 1/2 yr old twins, so there's always some dirty dish! :) We do around 9 loads a week.

    • Michelle

      To save on energy costs, I try to only do a load once a week. I make sure I take up every space in the dishwasher before I run a load :)

    • bethbarnhill

      We run our dishwasher about once a day (that is, if I feel like emptying the dishwasher of the clean dishes! If not, it ends up being about every other day.)

    • HeatherVacari

      Bring on the challenge!!With a 1 year old baby and Husband, I cook twice a day so my dishes stay in the dishwasher. I usually can get away with 4 times a week.

    • Jennifer

      I do at least one load a day.

    • jacksonat25

      I typically do dishes once every day or day and a half. Would love to try the new cascade. Thanks.

    • Stephanie D.

      We have to run our dishwasher at least once a day and sometimes even twice. So I'd say in an average week we run it about 7-10 times. I always have to rinse everything before I put it in the dishwasher, so I would love the chance to try these Cascade Action Pacs.

    • Michelle

      Every other day or so – depending on the amount of cooking and hand washing I have done.

    • Lisa

      I run 6-8 loads a week. Usually once a day, but sometimes I can skip if we're eating dinner out.

    • Crystal Mullins

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day, sometimes twice. On average we run the dishwaher 9 times per week.

    • Cindyrella2

      Family of 6 and we do at least 7 loads a week, usually more. Wow. You make Action Packs sound wonderful.

    • alice

      I run my dishwasher about 14 loads a week! Hope I win!

    • moneysavingmama

      We try to only do one big load of dishes a day. Although there is rarely a moment when my sink is empty. Those darn dishes just keep piling up. I can totally relate to that holding your breath moment, because often we are tossing things in as we're running out the door to soccer or gymnastics etc. and we just hold our breath and hope they are clean when we get home. If not someone is stuck handwashing it later and no one wants to do that!

    • Laura

      I just got a new dishwasher, and I love not doing dishes by hand! I'm finding that I run about 3 or 4 loads a week. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    • i<3freestuff

      I do between 10 and 14 loads a week…
      My carbon footprint has to be awful!

    • Suzanne Scott

      I would say on average I do about 3 loads of dishes a day!! I have elderly parents and every week I cook their meals and take them to their house. In return I get a pile of Tupperware to take home and wash!! My house on Sunday's looks like a tornado hit!! I spend until Tuesday usually washing and organizing the containers, I than on Thursday begin to cook the food that my brother will take over to them on Friday for the week. So between the Tupperware and all the dirty dishes from cooking my dishwasher gets a work out. The sad part is my brother has already bought us one new dishwasher and our house is only three years old!!! Yikes!!!

    • 4foot

      With 5 in the family, at least 7 -10 per week.

    • Sandy

      I run 5-7 loads a week

    • brodybugsmomma

    • tanyalulu

      1 load a week. We wash dishes by hand mostly.

    • twothumbs

      one load a day, but if i didn't have to pre-wash that one load would be so much better! :)

    • Lauren

      I think I run mine aobut 2 times a week. I try to cram it to capacity every time. I would love to try these!

    • Susan H.

      At least ten.

    • wgdennis

      I end up running the dishwasher at least every night. On the weekends if I really cook, more than once a day. (I wish kids would understand the concept of using the same glass through out the day instead of a new one each time they need something to drink :-))

    • Stacey

      I try to stick to only one load a day, so that puts us at 6 – 7 a week. What a FUN giveaway!! :)

    • Heather R.

      We run a load everyday so at least 7 loads a week if not more

    • Holly Krause

      I do between 4 and 6 loads a week.

    • shawnalei

      There's just two of us in the household- we usually run two loads a week.

      5 loads a week. i can organize and fit a bunch of stuff in now !

    • Victoria

      I run my dishwasher at least 3 times a week! We are a family of 3 and I cook dinner every night, so dishes pile up quickly!

    • divya

      i run my dishwasher daily ones because i have 2 kids.and they need each plate for each snack.and i like to give it a try.

    • Missy S.

      We have 6 people in our family and since am doing more grocery shopping thanks to coupons, I also do more cooking at home. We probably do about 7-9 loads a week.

    • Monica Frazier

      I run 3 or 4 loads of dishes a week. I could do more but sometimes I am too lazy to unload the dishwasher and just hand wash the dirty ones!

    • sldp

      I do approximately 9-12 loads a week:(

    • Jenna

      This is a great giveaway. We run 3-4 loads a week.

    • elainemast

      About5 to 7 loads a week. I have a sample pack that I want to try!

    • valerie

      I have a family of 6. We run our dishwasher 2 times a day so a total of 14 times per week or more if my husband cooks!

    • Carrie Russell

      Because of being a stay-at-home mom and not eating out a lot, we usually are eating 3 meals a day at home. We normally run the diswasher between 7-9 times a week.

    • chickymcnuffin

      At least one load a day, usually more! I'd LOVE to try that sample pack as our dishwasher doesn't seem to get everything very clean… I was afraid it was just the dishwasher!

    • Melodie

      I do about 2-3 loads a week

    • braskasmith

      I do at least one a day sometimes more.

    • Mommycfo

      I would normally run at least one load of dishes per day, but with my husband gone for the year, I try to keep it to one every other day, which means a lot of dried on food at times since I am temporarily a single mom. Go Army! :)

    • reneet706

      I run 3-4 loads (depending on how much caffeine I have had that week!)

    • Jessie

      We do about 4-5 loads a week.

    • lacye16

      We like to cook and eat at our house. We also have people who like to come to eat at our house like the neighbors. We do about 14 loads a week.

    • Jennifer Power

      I do about 2 loads of dishes a day, not including the pots and pans I wash by hand. My dishwasher is very crappy, so I always pre scrub and then stick in the washer. I watch 5 children in my home and don't have a microwave, so you can imagine the amount of time I spend in the kitchen. If this works, I might have to come give you a hug!!!!

    • Wendy Curtis

      I do 5 or 6 loads of dishes per week, I have a new dishwasher. It is a Kitchenaid. It works much better than the old one we had and looks pretty also. But it still does not always get off all the baked on or burned little bits of food. Very often I have to rewash dishes by hand to get off food residue.
      When I make spaghetti or meatloaf I usually have left overs and like most people I store them in plastic bowls. I have never been able to get the stains out of the bowls.
      I have found that I can use dishwasher detergent to easily clean other things as well. If you put a little hot water in your bathtub with dishwasher detergent it will clean those nasty tub rings without any scrubbing.
      I love dishwasher detergent. Cascade is a great brand. I never have to use extra detergent when I use Cascade. Its a strong and wonderfully effective brand.

    • jeanie

      I run my dishwasher 1-2 times a day. We usually eat all three meals a day at home so we have lots of dirty dishes!

    • LorieO

      With a large family, we probably run 10-12 loads a week. My dishwasher's not the greatest; we have to rinse and scrub prior to loading. I'd love the chance to try this product… esp for FREE!

    • Jessica

      About 5.

    • chow4302

      I run 7 loads a week, sometimes 10.

    • suthrngurl67

      I run about 2 loads a week.

    • Jenni

      We do about 1 load a day, so about 7 loads a week. We have a funky, portable dishwasher, so I would REALLY like to try these! I can relate with having a strained relationship with one's dishwasher.

    • kimbiesl

      We do about 12 big loads a week… the biggest challenge is that my 16 year old son always loads – and of course he NEVER scrapes or pre-rinses anything – I think I've had some egg-ish and cheesy plates run through 4 or 5 times!

    • wendythelen

      We run between 7-11 loads a week.

    • homeschool4christ

      We wash 1 or 2 loads a day. We seem to have a houseful of guests after church most Sundays, and my girls have lots of friends over that always stay for din din. Would love to try this product.

    • TallahasseeLassie

      About 4 loads a week, depending on if any of the kids are home from college.

    • Bonnie

      I don't average over load a week!!I don't use the dishwasher as I should. Is it because it's not worth it to have to pre-wash, load and then unload, and possibly still have to reclean some dishes? Could Cascade Action Pacs change all this for me?

    • janet

      i run about four loads a week.

    • rebeccama

      I run my dishwasher all the time. I feel like that is the appliance that is used the most.

    • cherylgoss

      We do about 4 per week. Empty Nesters don't cook too much anymore!

    • cassia2

      We run it about every other day (so maybe 3 times a week). Which can be a problem when it comes to dried on food. Especially since oatmeal is a favorite around here. Yikes!

    • I run one load a day most days – some days I skip, other days I add an extra load. An average of 7 loads per week. Pick me, pick me!!

    • Robin

      I run about 11 loads of dishes a week. I would like to restore my relationship with my funky dishwasher also ;)

    • momof3andteacher

      I have a family of 5 (includes our newborn). We run our dishwasher 2 times a day = 14 times a week so all those baby bottles can stay clean as well :) THANK GOODNESS for dishwashers because without one I would go CRAZY and when would I have time for my children???

    • Alisha

      I run my dishwasher about 6 times per week. I would love to try this!!

    • tamperly

      I run about 4 or 5 a week.

    • Kim

      On an average week, I do 5 – 7 loads in my dishwasher. This week there were extra because a mouse got in our kitchen drawers and cupboards (YUCK!!!!!) and I had to wash everything that used to be clean.

    • mooseb84

      I usually do about 7-9 loads a week :0)

    • With two toddlers, and RARELY eating out, we run approximately 7-10 full loads per week. I cook the far majority of our meals… trying to keep the little guys on a balanced diet. How I would love to move beyond pre and sometimes post scrubbing our dishes!

    • Brooke

      We do about 2 loads of dishes a week

    • aceraley

      We wash 4-5 loads a week but it is a fun time at our house. Our two year old gets to push the buttons to start the dishwasher. Highlight of the night before bedtime at least to a two year old!

    • melanejackson

      I wash every other day – but two to three loads on those days. I like to see how gross and crusty they can get before I wash them! Just kidding- I have lazy teenagers and a household of 5!

    • amandajarvis

      At least 1 a day…sometimes 2. With six kids and a husband that loves to cook, but not clean up, dirty dishes are always around!

    • jma5281

      We run about 4-5 a week, but my husband likes to run the dishwasher when it's half full. Arrggghh. At least he tries!

    • candice7sc

      I run at least 1 per day. Sometimes it can be up to 3 (depending on how much I cook!).

    • Each week varies dramatically for me! I probably run one load every other day most weeks.

    • Melissa

      I love my dishwasher! I run about 4-5 loads every week. This week I'm home alone, so it's definitely gotten a break (I can't fill up the dishwasher by myself!). Next week—it's back to the grind!

    • Sherri Cummings

      I run the dishwasher 3-4 times a week.

    • Kelly

      13 weekly. Six kids & cook at home A LOT!

    • Lucybell

      I would love to try them out. I am never quite sure if things will be clean after running the dishwasher. No pre-rinsing (scrubbing) would be great!!

    • I need to see this myself! I run 1-2 loads a day!

    • FTMamaPTStudent

      We do 5-7 loads per week :)

    • Kam

      5-6 times a week. I use to hate emptying the dishwasher. Now my 12 yr. old does it! :)

    • jeannav

      I usually run between 4 and 5 loads a week! We always have to prerinse and almost always still have stuff on the dishes after the wash cycle too!

    • Christine

      I run the dishwasher everyday. I have now been using paper plates a few times for meals just to make the loads a bit lighter. Some how I still run it everyday. This product sounds great!

    • lady_k

      I run about 5 loads of dishes per week.

    • atleast 5 im lucky if i do less than 7

    • Soda

      5 to 6 a week and feel like we wash them before putting them in.

    • Vicki Hendrix

      We run the dishwasher 5-7 times a week.

    • Kim L

      I would love to try this! I run my dishwasher atleast 4 times a week.

    • Jennifer

      I usually run 2-3… although we live in nashville so right now we're not doing any to save water! Would love to try action packs when our water emergency is over!!

    • Kinzie Harvell

      At least once a day!!!

    • April Hunt

      I run a load at least once a day!

    • celine

      i probably run the dishwasher once a day

    • valeriemartin

      8-9 loads a week :)

    • Jackie

      we run the dishwasher 7 times a week and have to pretty much wash before putting in – would love the chance to try this out!

    • tammynsc

      About 3-4 times a week.

    • I run my dishwasher 5-7 times per week, more if we have friends over (and we usually do once or twice a week!). Although we do a lot of prewashing so it would be nice to not have to!

    • Diane

      I usually do about 2-3 loads a week.

    • aligee

      seven times a week!

    • Deborah

      I always prewash my dishes. This sounds too good to be true.

    • Heather

      I run 7 loads a week.

    • Veronica

      We run 7-8 loads a week here.

    • crystaltripp

      I run the dishwasher every other day with my hubby gone but at least once a day when he is here. I would love to try this!!

    • Brittney

      I do seven loads of dishes each week- and could probably do more!

    • rashelle628

      We run the dishwasher at least once a day and twice a day on the weekends when everybody is home from school and work to help dirty up the dishes!

    • Jennifer

      I do AT LEAST 7 loads a week-would love to try these!!

    • Danielle

      I run the dishwasher about three times a week. I try to not use it as much as I can because the dishwasher tablets are so expensive! I'm almost out, and then it looks like I'll be washing by hand for a while until I get another great deal on dishwasher tablets!

    • lisa

      I run the dishwasher about 9 times a week and have to pre-soak. I have well water and would love to see how the combination would work. Would love to try.

    • alliann

      Our family of eight manages to dirty up 7-9 loads a week plus a good many handwashings- prob. my least favorite chore!

    • Melissa Y

      We run the dishwasher about 8 times a week, and do quite a bit of pre-washing. These sound great, I can only imagine how much time and water I would save by not having to pre-wash!

    • BarbaraJon

      I wash at least 5 loads of dishes in my dishwasher a week. I would love to try the Cascade Action Pacs. Thanks

    • michelle

      I would love to try those!!!

    • Sara

      I run my dishwasher twice a week :)

    • Shannon Sawyer

      We run our dishwasher about 4 times per week.

    • mythreesons

      I would love to love my dishwasher again! (Or should I say “again”….) Sounds like I would with Cascade. No prerinsing – that's my kind of product with the crazy schedule our family keeps……

      • mythreesons

        OOPS! I didn't say how many times we run our dishwaher. On average, I'd say three times a week. =)

    • momin09

      i run the dishwasher at least 4-5 times a week. i prefer to hand-wash simply b/c that's what i was raised doing HOWEVER, now my husband & i (& our 15 mth old toddler) live next door to his brother & his wife & their 7 yr old boy. We are always eating together to try & save money, but as you can imagine, having 4 adults & 2 boys can make a mess in the kitchen (& that doesnt include the dishes needed to COOK the food). As money s very tight, this would be a great way to save time in the kitchen & in the wallet. I would love to win :)

      thanks for the opportunity

    • Karen

      Due to my at home job (B-setting) we manage to wash 7 – 9 loads a week. I have to run the diswasher because I run out of dishes.

    • Brooke

      I run my dishwasher about 5 times a week!

    • cherylkidd

      We run 5-6 loads per week.

    • Tamara

      It's amazing how a stay-at-home mom can create so many dishes. For just us three, I probably run the dishwasher 5-7 times a week. My dishwasher is also crazy, and we have to pre-scrub everything that goes in. Would love to try something that actually gets my dishes clean!

    • fishfriend

      I run at least my dishwasher twice a day. So that make it at least 14 loads a week. I would love to not pre wash all my dish this would save alot of time.

    • Sarah

      Even though it's just me and my hubs, I'd say we run the dishwasher probably 4 times a week. I love to cook, so there are always lots of dishes to wash! I don't have the best relationship with my dishwasher either, so I would love to try these out!

    • carrieholder

      Well for me and 3 kids I have to wash 6 to 7 times a week and my dishwasher I have to clean before i put in.
      So the only reason I put stuff in there is to sanitize really.

    • kristifromchelsea

      There are 5 in my family and we run the dishwasher about 7 times a week. We always pre-wash.

    • Anna

      I do about 7/week and my old dishwasher only works well when I use those detergent packs.

    • We have a case of the funky/not really functional dishwasher too! Sometimes, I think that with the time I spend “pre-washing” my dishes, I might as well not even run the dishwasher at all! HOWEVER, I run it at least 5 times a week. (Make note that most of those loads contain dishes that have been through the dishwasher cycle at least 3 times, and still aren't clean!)

    • Running the dishwasher is an everyday occurence around here and I'd love to try something that would save me money and time…(not having to basically pre wash them before we load the thing!
      also its noisy…does it help that ??? ha ha
      seriously, i don't know how you're going to choose between all the 1800 or so entries…but if humor helps..think about me dancing around the kitchen with a clean dish…
      and thanks for all your hard work

    • Mary

      I cook a ton so I do about 4-5 loads a week just for my husband and myself and I have to prewash the dishes or they don't get clean!

    • TrishB_FL

      7-10 loads a week….and like you doing a major prewash before they go into the dishwasher!

    • Janna

      5 loads – just got some of these and am excited to try them!

    • jwcrady1

      I run my dishwasher about 12-15 times per week–with 4 kids under 6- these days it's just easier to throw it in and hit the Start button….

    • karencoupons

      I run my dishwasher 3 times a week because I wait until it is so full that you can't fit one more thing before I run it. I prewash almost everything because it doesn't get things clean if I don't. My dishwasher broke down on Monday and I have had to hand wash all week until I get a new one early next week.

    • kty1234

      Run the dish washer twice a day sat thru tues. My boyfriend empties it in the morning, then i load it. Because of the busy days and preparing meals for the rest of the week i am once again running it and unloading by 5!! The rest of the week we have so much going on with our daughter the dishes ten to sit and wait for our sat loading of the dishwasher to begin again. I need a maid or some cascade so do not have to rerun some of the dishes. Thx for the opportunity!! (;

    • samanthapeppes

      usually 6 loads….

    • Sydmagg2

      Cooking? yikes…ok…..I'm in. 4 loads a week.

    • mticknor

      I run 10 loads a week, soon to be more though. i have a baby on the way. she is due July 19th

    • JaimeeL

      once a day- 7 loads a week

    • Malaya

      I run the dishwasher 3 to 4 times per week. I hand wash my plastic items, most of the time, but use the dishwasher for everything else. There is 4 of us at our home.

    • PM

      At least once a day, with some manual hand washing

    • megsc

      2-3 times per week

    • lauriecl

      We run about 10 loads a week. At least one a day, and two or three extras for good measure. :)

    • valeriehughes

      10-12 loads per week. Growing teenage boys:)

    • Denise P.

      It probably averages out to 8 times a week, plus we do pots and pans in the sink. There are 4 of us and we try to reuse cups and mugs where possible.

    • Lynn

      at least 4 times per week

    • Patricia L Bell

      I use my dishwasher once or twice a week. Although I wipe off any large food from the dishes I don't rinse them. They sit in the dishwasher waiting to be washed with Cascade! I have used it for more than 30 years. I have tried others but there is nothing out there better than Cascade, I promise. My uncle was an appliance repair man and always gave me tips on using appliances to maximize their performance. He always said, If you are going to run it, run it full. Use the water miser and water heat functions. Always let your dishes air dry and don't use the dry cycle on you dishwasher it will bake the item and if there is any food particle it will not come off!

    • Wende

      I generally run 9-11 loads a week!

    • Allison

      I run around 5-7 a week.

    • lackley

      I do about 4-5 loads a week. I hand wash my pans and large items.

    • gleavekj

      Our household does about 5 loads per week. On the weekends, we sometimes run it twice per day!

    • whitneybutler

      I generally do at least a load every day, so i guess about 7 a week. I wash my cutting boards, chopping knives, and large pots by hand.

    • I live alone, so usually just 1, maybe 2 loads.

    • thedrakesx4

      I do about 4 loads of dishes a week.

    • Dana Cheatwood

      Your dishwasher sounds just like mine! I would LOVE to try this. I wash 4-5 per week. Thanks for the chance to win.

    • Terri

      Nine loads a week.

    • Dale

      I run my dishwasher every other day…just got a new one because I fell way out of love with the old one. Still have a hard time not rinsing completely before putting dishes in…just can't bring myself to trust the new one…lol

    • Jenn

      Probably 5-7 times a week, and often the bowls on top don't get cleaned very well. We do pots and pans by hand in the sink.

    • thecastelfamily

      I run 1 load every night :) 7 loads a week…

    • shellygentry

      Usually about 7-9 loads a week. (Sometimes more than 1 on Saturday or Sunday). I have a picky son who doesn't like any of his food to touch, so he uses a LOT of dishes!

    • Lisa

      With Teenages in the house I run between 10 to 14 a week. As I am typing this I'm saying to myself…wow that's alot.

    • sheilawright

      i would love to try these, i use whatever i can get for a great deal usually. with 4 teenagers plus my husband and i and constant kids friends and nephews coming over we run our dishwasher at least 2x every day and an average of 16x a week plus all the big stuff we handwash! this would be awesome, thanks so much for all your work.
      sheila

    • SB

      Probably between 5-6 FULL loads a week!

    • Angie

      at least once a day — with very little to NO hand washing. I try, try, try again until it comes clean in the dishwasher.lol

    • kristytallarino

      At least 7 loads a week! Poor dishwasher works on over time.

    • Nicole Moon

      My family does about 10 loads a week. My dog does help me pre-rinse though because when I put dirty dishes into the washer he likes to sneak up behind me and lick my plates clean. :)

    • Suzanne Clark

      We try to conserve! Our fam of four probably runs 2-3 a week :)

    • Heather

      I wash at least 1 load a day. I do rinse off the dishes before loading them but that is it.

    • debp

      I do about 5 loads a week.
      twoofakind12@yahoo.com

    • jen

      we do one load a day and I try not to rinse them first, but sometimes I end up having to rewash what I didn't rinse first…

    • Megan

      Usually 2-3 loads per week. And while that may not sound like alot to some, I prewash every single item before it goes in the dishwasher!! That gets really old and is very time consuming!!!

    • nursekaraj

      6-7 loads per week. I do try to rinse the dishes first.

    • Patricia

      I only do about 6-7 loads a week but like you, my dishwasher is more of a dish-holder! We are in a rent house so there is no sense replacing it…we would have to leave a new one here when/if we move. We have to pre-wash dishes first OR we have to wash them as soon as we finish using them. Even then, many of the dishes have dried food flakes on them and have to be wiped down after the dishwasher finishes drying! I would love to try something that might work to cut the time we spend unloading or re-washing dishes each week!

    • Marisha

      My hubby and I use a TON of dishes, so we run our dishwasher at least every other day. If not daily. (:

    • Amy

      We probably run the dishwasher 5-6 times a week, but clean pots/pan by hand. Like Jenny, I am not on good terms with my dishwasher, and scrub off EVERYTHING before loading.

    • Jennifer Elrod

      I usually run the dishwasher 1-2 times a day, so anywhere from 7-14 times a week. I try to use paper products at supper when most of us eat to cut back on dishes, but I know that's not great for the environment either. We've just never had a dishwasher wash really well, but maybe we've been using the wrong dish detergent all along! :)

    • Melanie

      Oh man! I am having the same problem with my dishes. They just don't seem to come clean and I'm not supposed to have to pre-rinse for our dishwasher. I'd love to try the action packs to see if they do really make a difference. I just read on another site that using vinegar in the rinse cycle is a great rinser. I just tried that on my last wash and am eagerly awaiting the results, so this post is very timely for me!

      We do approx. 10 dishwasher loads a week, if not more. I run it 1-2 times a day and I also wash the larger, hard-to-get-clean pots and pans by hand. I cook most of our meals at home and we have 4 kids, so there are lots of dishes!

    • Melanie

      6-7 times a week – rise everything before it goes in and some glasses still come out gritty!

    • Christi Brownlow

      We run the dishwasher 7 – 9 times per week! We have a newborn who goes through the bottles like no one's business, so it's just easier to wash them in the dishwasher than by hand.

    • Karen

      I run the dishwasher 5-7 times per week! I would love to win a $25 gift card to Walmart, who wouldn't? Good Luck Everybody!!

    • Chrissy

      Averages probably about 7-9 per week. I have never used the Cascade action packs, mainly because I haven't been able to find a sale good enough to make me willing to try something new. I bet that giftcard could buy a few packs though!

    • hollyhodges

      I run 3 or 4 I guess. I just bought a whole big thing of these on sale at Kroger for 9.99 plus had coupons and got the $4 off for P&G products.

    • reniemoss

      We run about five for a family of four.

    • loyal2disney

      Somehow my family of 3 runs the dishwasher every other day (and my infant is even breastfed and not on solids yet!). So, I am sure that number will go up even more in a few weeks when my little one starts on solids.

    • Kristen

      We run our dishwasher anywhere from 7-14 days per week. I cook every day, sometimes multiple times so that I have food to put up from later in the week so that we have an easy meal to grab. Then I make coffee every morning and every night before I go to work. I absolutely refuse to wash that coffee pot by hand!!

    • czesak

      About 10-14 times a week. Crazy!!

    • Beth

      I run the dishwasher about 4-5 x a week. ( I think)

    • amycorene

      About 5 times a week.

    • kermnelmo

      I run our dishwasher 5 times a week. I LOVE the Cascade action packs. My dishwasher came with a sample of 5 of these and I fell in love with them. They work incredibly well !!!! ;o)

    • Marisa

      We do about 4 to 6 loads a week. I use the Cascade Action Pacs and they are great. I'm so grateful for my dishwasher. I thank God for it everyday!

    • Aurora0081

      I hand wash all of our dishes, then put them in the dishwasher because I can not stand dirty dishes. I run the dishwasher about 4 times a week.

    • lisatek82

      I have one of those washers with two seperate drawers and I do 12-14 loads a week. Two toddlers with sippy cups and a husband that needs a fresh cup for every drink really adds up.

    • SpeedyEmma24

      We have two children and we are constantly running the dishwasher. We are currently running it 3 times per week. I would to have a product that works that good! Sometimes I have to rewash some items in the dishwasher with some of the products that I have used.

    • Larissa

      I run mine 5 times a week. Would love to win!

    • shananava

      We run 2-3 times per week. Run rinse in middle at time. Its older so have to use 2 tabs sometimes if fuller load. Thanks!

    • Laurie

      We run our dishwasher 2x a week. I do a lot of handwashing, though. I love the Cascade Action Pacs – SO easy!

    • busymommy628

      I run the dishwasher 3-4 times / week. Would LOVE to try something that means I don't have to pre-rinse everything before putting in in the dishwasher. Would run it more, but half the time, I end up washing the dishes by hand instead of just rinsing them.

    • Coupon Cat

      4 to 5 times per week. I haven't used the cascade packs yet, but I have switched to a pack or cube. Find it cleans so much better than gel or granules.

    • Bridget

      We have a least one load of dishes in the dishwasher every day, but sometimes we have to do two.

    • skgaff

      we run about 5 loads a week

    • Sheri Sessions

      I NEED to run my dishwasher 3 times a day…but I actually probably run it only 4 or 5 times a week. Thanks! Sheri

    • bbunch

      There are 7 in my family with my 5 children all under age 11. I run the dishwasher at least once a day- if they eat Pop Tarts for breakfast! So 8x average for me a week!

    • Lindsay M

      We have a small family with a toddler, but I do a lot of baking and run about 5 loads a week. Good dish soap is hard to find!

    • cojacks

      We have a household of & and hve stopped buying paper products to save money ang go green! this means we run the dishwasher at least twice a day. This would be so awesome to win. thanks.

    • cmccabe

      I run my dishwasher 3 or 4 times a week.

    • 2Cor12_9

      We are a family of 6 during the week (my Dad works here)and we run it at least once a day so, I'll say 10 x week…

    • Wendy

      I try to keep it to 2 loads a week. Laundry is another story:)

    • kc131391

      14+ family of 7.

    • Erin

      We run about 5 loads a week.

    • aprilorr

      We do probably 4 loads a week….including scrubbing the dishes before we put them in the dishwasher:)

    • sheilaelrod

      we run 1 a day

    • melissa hodgen

      7x a week, but my toddler son starts the dishwasher on his own a few times as well.

    • Mommaof4kiddos

      Ha! You caught me! I am SO guilty of putting in barely rinsed off (very quickly under running water) dishes…my husband gets fussing at me when he sees me do that(his mom practically washes the dishes before she puts them in the dishwasher, NO LIE!!! That's just insane to me, it is a dish washer right???) Well, I do not leave big chunks of food on the plates, but you get the idea, right? But does he volunteer to do it his way??? Absolutely not! I can make all dirty the dishes fit too!!! We will have a sink full plus to put in dishwasher, I can make it happen. My sister-in-laws(at special family gatherings) will try to fit dishes in to make it work to no avail, and then they will ask me because I can make the most of every little inch in that dishwasher =) Luckily, at these family gatherings at my mom's house she uses these litte Cascade Action Pacs so it gets all clean!!! They REALLY do work!!! I have four kids, so my dishwasher runs at least five times a week. I try the “use one cup a day” and some days it works great, and then there are those other days!!!

    • jana8

      Family of 8, and i love to cook and bake. Needless to say I run my dishwasher sometimes 2X a day. Up to 14 times a week.

    • Ivy

      We run the dishwasher everyday, so 7 times/week.

    • tracycook79

      There are four people in my family. we run the dishwasher about once a day. our dishwasher is “funky”. we have to wash the dishes before we load them in the dishwasher. my husband calls it “rinsing”. i have not quite figured out why my husband still insists on using the dishwasher (seeing as he is scrubbing them with hot water, soap, and sponge before he puts them in the dishwasher……..)

    • Izo_Leo_mom

      I do about 3-4 loads a week with my kids and husband helping to dirty dishes. They tend to sit for at least 12-24 hours on the counter unless it is a cleaning day!! I never rinse and I always use Cascade complete gel packs. I LOVE them and don't ever go for the cheaper brand in this area. I use my coupons and wait for sales to get it! I could use the gift card to get more!!!

    • Tracie

      We are a family of 7 and I am constantly baking, stewing, boiling and freezing baby food that we make ourselves. Not to mention I make pre-made meals for my teenage boys and freeze them. Having a new baby, I wash 3 loads of dishes per day with bottles included. We are a very busy family and are on the go all of the time. I do not know what I would do without our dishwasher. We would be washing dishes by hand all day long if there was no dishwasher, I can't live without it!~!~!

    • I do about 3 loads per week. Not too bad!

    • texasgirl79

      OMG! My family would love that! We run the dishwasher almost every night! We are only a family of 3 but we are on the “Dave Ramsey” budget so we all pack our lunches every day and eat at home every day. With 2 working parents and an 11 year old and living 30 minutes from civilization it seems, I am a stickler about everyone “washing” their dishes before putting them in the dishwasher because I just don't have the time to have to re-run the dishwasher if dishes aren't quite clean. I have to say my husband and son would appreciate these things the most :)

    • Jennifer

      3-4 loads a week…i *heart* my dishwasher!

    • sashadberitiech

      We do at least one load per day. Lots of family always stopping in to eat/snack = LOTS or dirty dishes!!

    • Stacy

      3-5…but I'm like you and have to pretty much wash them first. :)

    • Nina Gerald

      LOL— when I started trying to figure out how many times I ran the dishwasher I had to laugh!!! With 6 people(teenagers, young single adults, and adults who don't want to rinse dishes) living in our house right now and I babysit for a girlfriend's toddler and my own granddaughter(10 months)–well, are you getting the vivid picture!!!! I guess I run it at least 2x a day– that's 14x week. And some days well there are more times than that. No wonder my dishwasher is falling apart :) I had better try these!!!!!

    • mrkscott

      We run 6 loads a week

    • SFLS

      We run our newer dishwasher about 4 times a week. Ended up buying a new dishwasher when we priced out the replacements racks (old ones rusted out) and it would've cost $500 just to replace them. Crazy, right?

      One tip from the installer – keep the dirty dishes wet (using the rinse cycle) and the door closed on the dishwasher, otherwise the dirt dries on the dishes. Hope this tips help others – they work like a charm for us.

    • Dianna

      Wow, no rinsing?! We do 3-4 loads.

    • carly

      2 to 3 times a week

    • ladybug57

      I run my dishwasher at least once a day.

    • Theresa

      Seriously, I wash 10-14 loads a week. The dishes are never done around here and the kids are always complaining about how I make them clean the dishes before they load them, but if you don't they never get clean. If there is a detergent that can accomplish this, i'll have to see it to believe it. Bring it on!!!!

    • jamie

      i do 3 to 4 loads a week

    • rachelmcknight

      I usually do 2 loads Monday – Thursday, 3 on Friday & anywhere from 4-5 on Saturday & Sunday. I cook from scratch on the weekends, so there's lots of bowls, pots & pans to be scrubbed then thrown in the dish washer! So anywhere from 19-21 loads a week for a family of 5.

    • Jennifer

      I run my dishwasher 7 to ten times a week, sometimes more because if doesn't get everything off and I'm way to busy to hand wash dishes.

    • whitney

      i run the dishwasher atleast 4 times a week

    • Amy W.

      We run our dishwasher every night–no dishes by hand here!:)

    • tamileckbee

      We run the dishwasher AT LEAST once every other day; dishes pile up as fast as trash around our house and there's only 3 of us !!!

      We do 1.5 loads a day. Usually 3 every other day. My daughter goes crazy when I ask her to rinse them. She is 12 and it is her chore to load the dishwasher. I am sure she is definately up for the challenge.

    • Christine S.

      We usually run the dishwasher every other day — there are three of us living her most of the time — daughter is away at college.

    • dana

      I run the dishwasher every other day.

    • MDBJohnson

      I run our dishwasher anywhere from once to 3 times a day. I have 4 kids and we homeschool so we are always home messing up dishes and I don't have time to hand wash most days.

    • 6 loads and prewash means push the quick rinse button on the dishwasher. colleen

    • susiela

      I run one load a week.

    • Teresa

      Usually 7-8 loads a week

    • sherra

      We run the dishwasher @ LEAST once a day… I cant stand seeing a mess! drives me nuts! would love to try it!

    • Hannah

      We do about 10 loads/week.

    • Lel

      I run the dishwasher about 5 times a week. BUT my dishwasher sounds a lot like yours. What goes in exceptionally dirty, usually comes out dirty (just not AS dirty). I have to scrub things off my dishes before they go in the dishwasher. If this product cleans as you say it does, I'll buy this everytime!

    • mariaquackenbush

      6 loads a week, but I have to prewash it all!! agh!

    • Rachel

      I rund the dishwasher about 4 or 5 times a week.

    • carmarm

      We do between 5 and 9 loads a week. Usually, it equals out to one a day.

      thank you for the giveaway.

    • rslindner

      We run it once or twice a day -so probably about 10 times a week.

    • awphillips

      Usually about 6 loads per week.

    • ASmith

      We wash 7-14 loads of dishes in the dishwasher per week. What a great contest!

      Susan

    • couponfox

      once a day here too!

    • Ashley

      I run my dishwasher at least twice a day sometimes it gets a third. So it's no stretch of the imagination that I run around 16 to 17 loads a week. I never really thought of how many loads I really do. (I have a two year old and a newborn. Plus my husband works rotating shift work for the Navy so we always have dishes in the sink.)

    • Amie

      About 4 times a week.

    • Jillybean441

      I think I run about 5 loads a week…My husband is a one cup wonder…He uses one cup and then gets another for the next drink.

    • linlou

      Every other day! So about 4 times a week.

    • Robin

      We run about 10-12 loads a week in our dishwasher. We have 6 people in our home plus a toddler. We always have dirty dishes and I HATE to wash them by hand.

    • misty99

      I would love to try these. I wash everything out before I put it in the dishwasher. We have a dishwasher that is pretty high tech and it still will not get everything clean without rinsing it out first. I would love to try something that actually works.

    • Kate

      I do about 4-5 a week. Although, right now in Nashville with the flood damage, we are being asked to conserve water. I'm doing my part by slacking on dishes!

    • Brandi

      I try to only run it every other day :)

    • Junie01

      My dishwasher is so small and my family is so large that we do 3 loads of dishes a day. I guess that equals out to 21 loads a week. Although it feels like much much more. :)

    • sandnsable

      I run my dishwasher 7 days a week:)

    • crissyk

      oh my, I would say everyday. 7 days

    • kristenphill

      2 to 3 times a day dishes get washed in my dishwasher. With the kids and my husband dishes or steadily having to be washed.

    • andrea

      I run a load every other day!

    • akllholl

      We wash daily and twice on baking day so eight times a week!

    • Leangela

      I feel like I'm lucky after ready some of these comments. I really only have to do a load of dishes about 3 times a week — and I thought that was too much!

    • logansmom318

      Here we run the dishwasher 7 days a week. Can't seem to keep it empty lol.

    • carol

      I only run my dishwaher about 3 times a week. It is full when we turn it on.

    • Melanie

      I usually run my dishwasher daily.

    • Swimc9912

      I run one load on M,W,F.. but Saturday and Sunday we do 3-5 loads! ahhh… I like to cook, what can I say

    • tiffany8582

      I have a large family and end up having to wash dishes about twice a day for all the pots and pans too. We have five kids and 3 of them are teenagers who eat and eat and never reuse a dish.

    • Kim Garrett

      I run my dishwasher at least three times a week because for some strange reason my children don't understand what it means to rinse a cup out.

    • denab

      I have to run my dishwasher two times a day sometimes 3 depending if they have friends over. I feel like I am always doing dishes.unload, rinse, load, repeat.

    • Annette

      I wash 7 loads of dishes a week. We run the dishwasher every night before going to bed! I'd love to try the Cascade Complete 24 Hr. Challenge! Bring it on!

    • I usually run my dishwasher 5 times a week.

    • sdshaw

      I do about 4-5 loads every week. Except my OAMC days, then I might do that many in a day.

    • Corrie

      There are only two of us, but we run the dishwasher almost every day – at least 5 times a week. This is only because I cook a lot and we eat most meals at home. I don't want to think about how often I'll have to do dishes once we have children!

    • Robyn

      I run the dishwasher at least every other day. My boys seem to think they need a new cup every time they walk by the kitchen. Maybe this summer I'll implement a 'dishwasher prize' at my house – the child that can implement a new way to save on using so many dishes wins!

    • Rachel P

      I usually run it about 1-2 times a week. Depending on how often I cook. ;)

    • Mindi

      I run 6-7 loads a week. 2 adults and 2 toddlers.

      When I'm home, I do 5-7 loads a week – 3 adults.

    • sandyc215

      The dishwasher and I take Sunday off, but other than that, it's once a day, every day. Plus all the hand wash stuff I don't expect to come clean. Sigh.

    • Faith

      I do at least 10 a week. rarely do I get to go a day without doing 2 loads.

    • ssapp16

      I was about one a day…BUT I have to prewash because I hate to open the dishwasher to dishes that still have food on them. I would LOVE to try it!!

    • Teresa

      I run two to three completely full loads per week. I do not put pots and pans in my dishwasher because I feel like it doesn't get them clean enough. I would love to try this product – maybe I could put them in there then!

    • Jennifer

      Probably 5-6 loads a week – would love to try it!

    • cham

      2times a week usually but when my friends drop by for dinner the number doubles :)
      most of the time i use cascade pks just b'se they simplify the whole thing and cleans everything nicely
      so i'd be happy to be a winner on this

    • Megan D

      I run my dishwasher atleast four times a week-lots of bottles and sippy cups. We're also trying to eat all/most of our meals at home so that generates a lot of dishes!

    • Erica

      I feel like we do 7 loads a week, every day!

    • lsbcrb

      Good lord, I have two teenagers, one 19 year old male, 17 year female and a one year old male, as well as a husband, not too forget there friends that are over daily, being the “kool-aid ” house, so i cant really tell you how many but its quite a lot

    • Jill

      I do about 10 loads a week. I always run the dishwasher at least once a day and twice on several days of the week. We are a family of five plus I babysit two other kids, so my dishwasher is a well-used appliance.

    • rendeetrout

      I run my dishwasher at least 4 times a week. I never put plastic in my dishwasher because it never gets clean. Would love to try this on all my plastic ware.

    • maysette

      4-6 times a week, depending how often I cook at home!

    • Denise Merritt

      I do at least 7 loads of dishes a week. Four kids and three meals later = lot's of dirty dishes.

    • cschad72

      i run it 4-5 times a week, and i must “prewash” my dishes before putting in. sometimes i use it to just dry all the dishes i just washes! lol! i would love to try a product that would actually wash my dishes!

    • I wash about 7-10 loads of dishes a week. With 4 kids under 8yo, we go through a lot of dishes and sippy cups! :) I would love to give this stuff a try! Anything to make life a little easier!

    • Janice

      We run 7 or 8 loads a week and ALWAYS prewash! Would love to be able to skip that step.

    • we run about 7!

    • jennifer914

      I have four children, a husband, a church family who loves to eat and I work with 7 men all day who always expect me to bring in food! I think my dishwasher is always running around the clock. I am scared to even guess an amount but modestly I will have to say around 28(four loads a day x 7 days in a week). I still think it is more but I want to scream just hearing the 28!! LOL

    • ann taylor

      I try not to do more than 4 loads of dishes a week.

    • ToriPinSC

      Minimum of 7 loads a week [one for every day].

    • carissan

      Oh my, we run our dishwasher between 10-14 times a week. I have 3 kids under 5 and they eat all day! We tend to have house guests that stay for a week at a time, because our family lives so far away.

    • Ada

      At least 7, more if we have friends over!

    • Denise

      My hubby and I usually run the dishwasher a couple times per week. Thanks for the giveaway!

      Minimum of 7 loads a week. Have to prewash a lot of things (and this is a new dishwasher – got it in December)!

    • Zmama24

      Cool…it would be awesome if I could start liking my dishwasher…
      We do 7-10 loads a week. Once a day and some days more than one

    • Kelly

      I do about 4 loads a week.

      I probably do about 5.

    • Barbara

      I usually run 7 – 10 loads a week, and i have to prewash everything!

    • June

      2-3 loads–but since I save up until I get a full load–I end up with hard to get off “Dried up”

    • Aimee

      I do at least one load a day – so between 7 – 10 a week!

    • rclay18

      7-10 loads

      We run ours at least 7 times a week.

    • leslie7635

      We run ours around 3 to 4 times a week; but, with a baby on the way, I am sure we will be using it much more

    • Sangurkie

      We run our dishwasher about 5 times a week.

    • Kara

      about 4 times a week!

    • linda

      7 loads a week daily dirty dishes

    • Patti

      I would love to run it once every other day, but it doesn't happen at my house, even with 4 people! I too have issues with dishes not coming clean if by chance they have sat too long in the dishwasher or if they weren't rinsed well. If I have to rinxe them I may as well wash them!

    • sheree00

      7-9 loads per week

    • becky.e

      We run at least 7 loads a week. I prewash especially tomato based foods.

    • leighpl

      At least 14 loads a week unless we have friends over for a bbq like last Sat and we ended up doing 4 extra loads just from the bbq. I never pre wash – too lazy, we just stick the item that didn't get cleaned properly back in the next load!

    • hshoosier

      I only do about 3 loads per week. But I have to admit they are pretty nasty loads. My children do NOT understand “pre wash' so I never know what i will see when i open it up. I would be excited to try this. Will they wash my kids too??? ;0

    • danandstef

      I run 8-10 loads a week. I love to cook and there are 6 people in my family, so needless to say, we use a lot of dishes! I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one–we could really use it!

    • Christie

      I run mine 10-12 times per week.

    • Mine runs about 8 times per week. :)

    • melissalk

      At least 7x times a week.

    • shaubold

      There are only 3 in my household so we do 4 loads on average unless we have house guests, then the loads increase to 3 a day. What a great giveaway! Good luck to everyone.

    • Nelanie

      Our dishwasher runs about 5 times a week on most weeks.

    • joanna00

      I typically run about 4-5 loads per week. I know – I'm lucky! I was beginning to think that pre-scrubbing was part of the dishwasher ritual! How great to know that the Cascade works so well!

    • SS

      We run the dishwasher once or twice per day. So I guess about 10 loads a week. And yet, there are always dirty dishes in the sink!

    • Amanda

      At least one load a day!

    • Suzette

      I run my dishwasher at least 10 times per week. Between my 1 year old son, step daughter and my hunsband, I have a ton of dirty dishes. Dirty dishes that appear in the sink to be cleaned by the magical dish fairy(Me)! I currently hate my dishwasher! I have to soak dish and rinse them off before every load. With a son who does not want me to spend time doing anything else but playing with him and who will not go to sleep until 11:00, I would love not having to scrub the dishes before I go to sleep or before I pick him up from daycare after teaching all day…

    • Marsha

      I have tried these Action Pacs and they are truly wonderful. I run my dishwasher about 3 times a week. Would love to win the gift card!

    • orpah

      At our house the dishwasher runs 10 – 12 times in a normal week. If we had guest well it would be more.

    • miami7

      I have a full load every day. We are 7 in our family. My husband and I usually load it up and my 8 and 6 year old unload. They are awsome helpers!

    • Wendy

      I was between 7- 9 loads a week while my oldest children are away at college, but this summer it will be 10-12 a week. Sure would love that giftcard to try the Cascade Action Pacs..

    • jamie

      at least 4 loads a week

    • gail

      between 3 – 5 now, but this will increase during summer break!

      I run at least one load a day. We'll probably do two loads a day when we're all home in the summer.

    • Sherry

      I run between 2-3 times/week. Things dry on in between each wash. It would be nice not to have to pre-wash before loading the dishwasher.

    • drosendeals

      With 12 people in the house, we run our dishwasher three times a DAY which translates to at least 21 times a week! (do not ask about laundry loads!) I'd really like to try out those cascade power pacs as my kids don't always scrape the plates well enough ( or fast enough after we eat) to do a great job. THANKS!

    • There are only 2 of us. We avg. about 2 loads per week.

    • LaVie1

      I run at least one load a day!

      I cook for my 5 children in the mornings (before school) and a few neighbors. Then I have a family of 7 so again at night. Twice a day times 7, so 14 times a week.

    • Lori Valentine

      We run our dishwasher at least once per day and sometimes we need to run it twice. I have 3 boys of my own and keep 2 little girls everyday. So with 5 kids around it can fill up in a hurry. That doesn't include all the pans that I wash by hand.

    • Ashley

      My runs about 5 times a week.

    • Kristen

      Between bottles for our baby and all the dishes my husband uses each day (he can eat and eat and never show it. Lucky!) we run the dishwasher a lot. I would say we run it 4 to 5 times per week!

    • kennedyssavingmama

      7 per week

    • Angela

      I run the dishwasher about six times a week. And, I was a part of a focus group for these little miracle packs. I told them that a casserole wasn't nearly as much of a challenge as the dried Rice Krispies on the side of the cereal bowl!

    • chrystalm

      We normally do about 6 loads a week.

    • TC220

      With 2 kids under 2, we do a load a day for all the bottles and sippie cups. So, 7 a week.

    • conniekiser

      Jenny – I am reading this while sitting here beside my dishwasher … which I also have a love/hate relationship with (love b/c I hate to hand wash dishes; hate b/c it also doesn't do the best job). In a normal week, we run 7-8 loads … at least one per day. But lately, life has been anything but normal … we've had a few 12-13 load weeks! Thanks!

    • Jenn

      we run our dishwasher about once a day, so 7 times a week on average

    • DonnaTN

      I usually run mine once a day sometimes twice, so an estimated total about 8-9 loads a week.

    • kelly

      atleast 8-9

    • Michelle

      we are trying to sell our house so we run it at least every day, some times twice – I'd say 7-10 times/week. Seems like it is always running!

    • mp5494

      I run 2-3 loads a week, depending on if we are home for the weekend :0)

    • Lori

      10 loads a week

    • apriljoseph

      I run at LEAST one a day. Sometimes two when I do dinner dishes at night. Recently I went to making homemade dishwasher detergent to cut the costs on how expensive the regular stuff is. I also reverted in using white vinager in the jet dry compartment. It really does just as good of a job to keep the dishes from coming out crummy. I'm very interested in how well this one works.

    • kristenww

      7 loads a week

    • It's just me, but I run 1-2 loads per week. I hate having dirty dishes sitting in their, so even if its not full I will run it. I never use heated dry, I just always use air dry. I do this in hopes to cut down on the power bill :)

    • Vicki

      I probably run 4-5 loads per week.

    • Stacy

      I run 7 loads a week!

    • at least 5-6 loads a week depending on what nights I cook and if its something simple I will just wash in the sink, or put those in and then wait until I have a full load…lol

    • acwindsor

      I run about 4 loads a week.

    • sheilagg

      I run a load a day, normally. Two or more when kids and grandkids are here.

    • Stephanie

      I run mine once a day. I would love to not have to rinse them all but if I did that then they definately would not come clean. It is hard to imagine that those work so well – I may have to go buy some and see for myself.

    • Lisa

      I do 8-10 loads of dishes per week.

    • knightgang

      I run about 5 loads a week and just had to buy a new dishwasher. I love the cascade action packs but found out the hard way that they need to stay in their original packaging. If you combine them with other brands, they stick together. OOPS!!! Moral of that story is, don't mix brands and stick with Cascade. LOL!!

    • S_Carolina_Girl

      Although it's just my daughter and me, I think I have the smallest dishwasher in the world! LOL! I run 3-4 loads per week, when I actually cook at home.

    • sheilagg

      I run a load a day. Two or more when kids and grandkids are here.

    • Shannon

      We run at least one load a day(sometimes two), so 7+ a week! No wonder my electric bill is so high!!

    • I would LOVE to try this…I hate to pre-wash and hate that sometimes it is necessary!

    • Shan

      8-10 loads a week. I'd love to see how this product works.

    • Amanda

      I run 1-2 loads of dishes every day…so I would say on average about 10 loads of dishes every week….family of 5!

    • susiesimmons

      i run my dishwasher in the morning before work and every night before bed, so two times per day (14 times per week). no wonder my water bill is so high! :)

      With 2 people, I run it 2-3 times a week.

    • skylandteacher

      I wash four to five loads of dishes a week. I'd really like to try this Cascade Complete All-in-one.

    • janis

      We need to run the dishwasher everyday. We have had a bad few months. We needed to replace our washer, dishwasher and frig. I like using the pacs. They are easy in a busy lifestyle with kids.

      • JamieB89

        I hear you there! In the past month, we have had to replace our washing machine, lawn mower, weed eater, over a $1000 worth of work on one of our vehicles….and all of this was right after we tore up our carpet to put down hardwood floors… now the hardwood floor project is on the back burner and our floors for the moment is plywood floors!

    • Kelley

      We run our dishwasher about 4-5 times weekly. My kids just loaded it tonight when dinner was finished!

    • Jan

      I dont have a dishwasher but my daughter does. With young twins she does a lot of dishes. Probably a load a day and when family is over it might be two.

      I run 1-2 loads everyday. We are a family of four but we go through a lot of dishes! This would be great!! Thanks so much Jenny. Still loving all the info from your Montgomery trip. Also have recruited friends in Nashville to see you on Saturday.

      There are four teenage to adult age people living in our household, so between all of us, we normally do 1-2 loads a day… or 7-14 a week…… Lately, there have not been too many good sales on dishwasher detergent stuff, and with it being so expensive, I have been trying to wash more dishes by hand and give the dishwasher a rest… I would love the opportunity to try out anything Cascade! I love that brand!

    • savyredhead

      On a regular week I do maybe 2 to 3 because we try to use paper plates when we can and then we fill to the max before we run it.

      If I kept up with my diahes so my MIL wouldn't have to help (she is getting the BIGGEST present this Mother's Day!), then it would probably be 6-7. But, she helps, so I only catch 4-5.

    • bmcutshall

      We do at least one load each day, and sometimes more if the dishwasher doesn't do the job – especially on the top rack!!! So, about 8-10 times each week!
