Frequently Asked Questions
How much Cascade detergent should I use in my dishwasher?
For Cascade powder and gel detergents, start by trying the recommended amount on the back label. There may be times when it’s necessary to use a little more or less, depending on your dish load and water hardness. For something even simpler, try Cascade ActionPacs. Each pac provides the perfect dose of clean, so you know exactly how much to use, every time.
How do ActionPacs work?
Cascade, Cascade Complete, and Cascade Platinum ActionPacs make dishwashing even simpler by taking out the guesswork. They’re easy to use because they require no measuring, unwrapping, crumbling, or cleanup. ActionPacs contain a higher concentration of detergents than powders and gels, plus built-in rinse and shine ingredients. To use, simply pop an ActionPac into your dishwasher’s detergent cup, close the cup lid, and let your dishwasher run.
My dishwasher manual says to fill both cups with detergent. Do I need to use two ActionPacs?
Nope. You only need one ActionPac because the formula is concentrated. They’re designed to give you a convenient, simple way to dose detergent with no premeasuring.
Do I need to pre-rinse my dishes?
Actually, with Cascade Complete powder, gel, and ActionPacs, and Cascade Platinum ActionPacs, you can skip the pre-scrub and load your dishes in right off the table. These formulas contain advanced cleaning and rinsing power, so pre-rinsing isn’t necessary.
What if I have hard water?
Water hardness varies depending on where you live. The good news is all of our ActionPacs are formulated with water softeners to help fight hard water deposits on your dishes.
How can I prevent filming on my glasses and dishware?
Here are some simple steps you can take to help keep your glasses film-free:
- Fill both detergent cups for each load (if you’re using Cascade ActionPacs, you only need to use one).
- Try using Cascade Rinse Aid, which protects surfaces and boosts drying to prevent spots and streaks.
- Dishwasher water temperature should be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Try running hot water at the kitchen sink before starting the load to help reach this temperature.
- To help prevent low water pressure, make sure that no other water is being used in the house (showers, grass watering, washing machine, etc.).
- Be sure the dishwasher is loaded so that no items block the sprayer arms and prevent adequate water from reaching all the dishes.
- Once a month, use Cascade Dishwasher Cleaner to help remove limescale, grease, and odor buildup that can contribute to spotting and filming.

I've been washing dishes for more than 30 years and have done so by hand and with any number and type of dishwashers (even old portable dishwashing machines!). I've used every type and kind of dishwashing liquid and dishwasher detergent you can imagine. These Cascade Action Pacs are the best thing I've ever used--the are convenient, prevent waste (just how much dishwasher detergent SHOULD you add for an extra dirty load?--no worries here--one "pod" cleans as many really dirty dishes as I care to put into my top-of-the-line Kenmore dishwasher), get everything sparkling clean without pre-washing or rinsing, and smell great.
Again, if these aren't working for you, I suspect you aren't using hot enough water in your dishwasher (a fact that should trouble you re the cleanliness of your kitchen) or you aren't running a long enough cycle--it doesn't pay to run a short cycle--if you are worried about wastefullness, or environmental impact, wait until the the thing is completely full and then run the maximum cycle using the pots and pan scrub and sani-dry, features, etc.--you won't be disappointed with the results of this product and you will have peace of mind that you are really getting your dishes clean--a fact very important to your family's health.
Side note: These come in a plastic pouch that dissolves in water. That means that you should not handle them with wet hands, and you should not tear the plastic. Simply put the pouch in, and it takes care of itself.
This is clearly written on the packing, but I know not everyone will read it.
Honestly, Im just sad. These were always very convenient, but now I have to change out of principle.
Thanks for reading.
