I have heard a lot about Method products from Beth and a few friends that use and swear by them. Giant Eagle just started selling them and I had the opportunity to review a great selection of Method Products. What makes Method Products so family-friendly is that they are all made up of naturally derived ingredients. Plus, they are paraben-free, phthalate-free, triclosan-free and EDTA-free!
As I said, I’ve heard good things about Method cleaning products, mostly about how Green they are making them good for your family and the planet. Method products discloses all of their ingredients so you know what you are getting. Each ingredient is evaluated by EPEA to be sure it is safe for your health. Do your cleaners do that? Yikes.
I was able to review the Method All Purpose and Antibacterial Spray, Method Laundry Detergent, and several Method Hand Wash products that are all available at Giant Eagle.
Method All Purpose and Antibacterial Spray Review
I tried out the Method All Purpose and Antibacterial Spray first because we just installed granite countertops and I have yet to find a product that I like. I was surprised that the bottle was 20oz as it is a really generous size compared to other granite cleaners I have used. The Method All Purpose and Antibacterial Spray cleans all natural surfaces. It has a light grapefruit scent that smells clean and fresh when I spray it and then dissipates.
It cleans my counters really nicely and I like that it isn’t leaving a chemical residue on my countertops and bar like other cleaners do. Because let’s face it, food doesn’t always make it on a plate and can often be found on the counter – I’m just as guilty as my kids on this one – just ask my husband. 🙂
I have really been enjoying the Method hand washes in our bathrooms and at our kitchen sink.
The fragrances are light and fresh but not overpowering. It leaves my hands feeling clean and smooth. I especially like the fresh scent of Pear. My brother commented on how nice the juicy pear smelled in the bathroom while he was over for Thanksgiving. Yes, even guys notice things like that!
I also like the limited Pink Your Sink promotion that Method is offering in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Like all Method products, when you Pink Your Sink with Method Hand Wash, you are using only naturally derived formulas not parabens, not phthalates, not tricolosan, and not EDTA. Plus, the bottles are pretty on the counter too. 🙂
I have been using the Method Smarty Tabs in my dishwasher too.
Normally, I use powder dishwasher detergent since I have used tabs in the past with mixed results. Sometimes I would find that the tabs made the soap door stay shut. That was with my old dishwasher, my new Amana dishwasher did wonderfully with the Method Smarty Tabs. The tabs were very convenient to use too, just pop one of the Grapefruit scented tabs in the dishwasher and you are all done. No spills or messes.
They clean my dishes really well too. In fact, Consumer Reports recommends dish washer tabs over powder detergent. Thumbs up for this product.
I’ve been enjoying my Maytag Bravos Washer and Dryer since I received them a few months ago. They wash my clothes so well. I tried out the Method Laundry Detergent this week and found it cleaned my clothes very well. The Fresh Air scent is light and fresh, just perfect for my family’s clothing. I like that the bottle is small but delivers detergent for 25 loads! Just pump the amount you need from the bottle.
