Method Cleaning Products Reviews
And Information

Method cleaning products are designed to green clean your home with style. Read reviews and information to find out how they really work in your home, and if they are really environmentally friendly.

One of the most popular brands of green cleaning supplies available is Method. The company was actually founded by two male college roommates, which is not who you would typically think of as being interested in cleaning of any sort, whether green or not.

However, the company's vision is to provide environmentally friendly products that smell great, look great, and that people will enjoy using. Their motto is "People Against Dirty," and that seems to include both dirty homes, but also against packaging design which is not artistic as well as functional.

This article is focused on Method's products for cleaning your home, but the company actually has a whole line of personal care products too, along with laundry supplies.

What Makes Method Cleaning Products Environmentally Friendly?

Just because a company advertises that its products are "green" doesn't mean they really live up to the hype, since there are not hard and fast definitions for this and related terms. However, I've done some research into the products to help you evaluate the claims.

Basically, through my research I've concluded that overall the products are pretty Earth friendly, but as with almost anything, there is always room for improvement. However, if you're looking for cleaning supplies and products that are safer for the environment these are a great place to start since nothing is perfect.

Here are some of the attributes about Method cleaning products and supplies that I particularly think are Earth friendly. Please note that with so many products available for sale, in so many scents, these are just generalizations.

  • Non-toxic
  • Uses natural or naturally derived products (with some minor exceptions)
  • Biodegradable
  • Avoids cleaning chemicals such as ammonia, chlorine bleach, phosphates, and triclosan
  • No animal testing
  • Considers carbon footprint through entire manufacturing chain
  • Considers packaging and bottle design for less environmental impact
  • Uses 100% recycled plastic for bottles, which then can be recycled themselves

On the other hand, like I said there is always room for improvement. However, overall these are minor quibbles, and could easily be rectified by the company (and perhaps plans are in the works for some of them).

  • Has many varities of wipes available. Since these are a use once type of product, it isn't that environmentally friendly.
  • Not enough concentrated formulas in the Method cleaning products lines, where you can dilute them yourself. Instead many are already pre-diluted, meaning more packaging is used for water. (Note the Method laundry detergent is quite concentrated, on the other hand.)
  • Not enough products have refills available, which would enable you not to have to buy an entire new bottle.


Do Method Cleaning Supplies And Products Work Well?

It doesn't matter if a green cleaning product is actually good for the environment and your family's health if it doesn't actually work well to do what it is supposed to do -- clean your home. That is why one of my main criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of a green cleaning supply is actual results.

I've received a number of product reviews from other readers which I've collected here on this page to help you evaluate whether Method's products are right for use in your home. If you've used a product yourself, and want to share your own experiences with it, please skip down to share your own review here.

For ease of finding what you want, I have separated out the reviews into categories of Method cleaning products available, and also listed the major products available in each category, whether I've yet received a review or not. Please note that some products have multiple scents available, while others have only one scent. At my last count Method boasted 43 different scents across its entire line of products (including personal care and laundry products).

Cleaning Products For All Rooms

There are several Method cleaning products available which can be used in multiple rooms of your house, including all purpose cleaner, glass and surface cleaner, multi-surface wipes, cleaning and disinfecting wipes, nursery and playroom cleaner, a dilutable cleaner, and a hard floor cleaner.

Price And Availability Of Method Cleaning Products

Finally, in evaluating Method cleaning products, to decide if they are a good choice for use in your home, you need to consider both their price and availability. After all, if they are too expensive or hard to find they won't be easy to get and use in your home.

Fortunately, Method products are becoming easier and easier to find in stores. Of course, the best place to find them in retail stores is Target, where they first got their big break. However, since then they have gone out to more and more retail locations, including many other big box stores and grocery stores. In addition, these products are easy to find online too, often with good discount prices or packaged in bulk to reduce shipping costs and environmental concerns.

On the other hand, I've found that these products tend to cost a bit more than more conventional cleaning supplies. However, that is not unusual for green cleaning products, and my hope is that as these products become more popular and widespread their price will begin to come down some.
