Welcome to My Fellow Dishwasher OCD Friends

Mom Central Cascade Dishwasher Disclosure

I have dishwasher OCD thanks to the Cascade I received from Mom Central Consulting. There I said it, I am crazy anal about very few things in my life, and it just so happens the  dishwasher is one of them. Although, in my defense, my dishwasher OCD is very similar to my closet OCD because it has to do with having things organized the right my way.
It is what it is.

My name is Mallery and I have dishwasher OCD

And for the record, just because I don’t clean on a regular basis doesn’t mean I can’t have cleaning OCD. I mean, Michael was the one who wanted me to become a girl so he must realize I can’t do things that might jeopardize my freshly painted manicure! You guys combined with Michael are really laying down the girl pressure these days!
No joke dudes. I painted my nails not once, but twice this week! Holla!
(Holla? Where the heck did that come from?)

Cascade Platinum dishwasher tablets contain water softening agents to help prevent hard water stains

OK, let’s talk about dishwasher tablets for a hot minute. We have always used Cascade because, you know, Cascade works and the scent is delightful. (Cascade is so delightful I kept the mailing package the dishwasher tablets came in to sniff it.) Well… this one time we tried a ‘different brand’ and sure enough when the cycle was done there was food on a few dishes. And can you guess what he said to me next?

“you should rinse the dishes after they go through the dishwasher, like my mom does.”

Did he just tell me to be like his mom? My ears must be playing tricks on me because he wouldn’t say that! Men know they aren’t supposed to say things like that! Just slap my silly and call me Susan because he DID tell me to be like his mom! Aiyiyi!
I think he missed the marriage lesson where you aren’t allowed to compare your wife to your mom

Ps: Top Chef judge and editor of Food+Wine magazine, Gail Simmons, has partnered with Cascade to discuss why presentation is just as important as preparation. With that said, you should head over and show off your shine in their Instagram contest!

  1. Love Cascade!

    I grew up washing the chunks off the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher (and still do it).

    My husband told me once.just. once. That I didn’t make some food like his mom.

    It was YEARS before I made it again. I told him to go to him mom’s if he wanted to eat it then.

    Hubby’s should NEVER compare or tell us to do things like their mom’s. At least not out loud.

    Some of us guys can step it up too… I have no problem taking care of loading the dish washer.. And you will love this.. It’s my part of my twins sons weekly chores is to empty the clean dishwasher…

    Great blog.. Thanks

  3. I have dishwasher and sink OCD! It bugs me to no end when food is scraped into the sink with no disposal, or the drain catcher is removed to shove food down the drain that isn’t a disposal….and then don’t mind me as I rearrange the dishes you put in the dishwasher so they can all be effectively clean.

    I love Cascade! The tablets are pretty awesome too.
