by ~mod*mom~ at 25.10.07 Â©
We all get that bag?! Yay! It's just what I need!I see on they're website it folds up into a little zipped ball
I use the grapefruit counter cleaner and no smell laundry detergent.
I have their handsoap in all my bathrooms!
I love method products. My favorite is the lavender stuff. I just got turned onto borax laundry detergent and man does it get stains out of baby clothes like no other!
Vinegar and baking soda gets the cleaning job done for me. ~lol~
I love the foaming soap. And the bag of refill soap (which I dilute so it'll foam). It's the only thing that gets me through the newborn-washing-hands-every-five-minutes stage!
i <3 method! it's hard to track down in alaska though :(
I use Method products everyday so I was thrilled to see that as a giveaway! I especially love their laundry detergent and fabric softener. It smells sooo good!
My favorite is the countertop spray.
My favorite is the soy candle and the detox kit.
I love Method stuff - I switched all my cleaning products to theirs. I read an article where they said that we have to re-evaluate what "clean smell" is: it doesn't have to be bleachy smell, but that's what we're used to. I totally agree! So I started using their lavender cleaning spray and wipes, and I'm getting used to a "clean smell" being lavender, not bleach!
I love the all purpose spray in cucumber. I love method products and use them all over my home!
Believe it or not this is the first time I have heard of these products and after reviewing their website I would say the spray - french lavender would be my favourite product. My cleaning tip would be to disinfect objects Lysol disinfectant wipes are great. It helps kill germs, and it smells great also.
I LOVE the pink grapefruit scent wipes - espcially in the kitchen. They ease my conscience knowing they are biodegradable!
I love the pink grapefruit handsoap.
I love method products! My fave has to be the mint window wash...Minty?! How cool is that? My cleaning tip...I use newspaper for washing mirrors and windows because it doesn't leave streaks.
The party prep kits look awesome, like they would make cleaning fun!
I'm a big fan of Method cleaning products! I love the dish soap, aroma rings, cleaning wipes, the baby laundry detergent... This list really could go on and on.
I bought my first Method product a few weeks ago and love it. It is the Tub and Tile cleaner. It does a wonderful job in the shower and there is no harsh smell or feel on your hands.
Can I be honest? I want to win this more than I wanted the pink Dyson!
(I promise this is not another entry, but I hit publish before including my e-mail: henfeatherzATgmailDOTcom)
I like their foaming hand soap. My son is potty training so my best cleaning trick right now is to entice him to wash his hands and foamy soap is a big hit with him.
I love method and so many of their products, but my favorite of all is the cucumber all purpose spray. Although, I have never tried their ylang ylang daily shower and that sounds fabulous.
I love the Method laundry detergent—I like knowing that what I'm putting on my body hasn't been washed in ridiculous amounts of chemicals!
I love the flushable cleaning wipes. They make cleaning around the toilet so easy.
I have never heard of, or used, Method cleaning products. I think they look like a fantastic product line, though! I would love to have the kit:
I've never tried Method products, but I'd love to. Best cleaning tip? We use Simple Green as a stain remover. Maybe Method is as good?
I'm a big fan of the hand soaps. I'd love to try some of the other products.
our older tod has very sensitive skin … so, we use ‘method’ foaming hand wash in all our bathrooms … the foam is fun to use for both tods but also reduces the amount of soap used for one hand wash. the funny thing is:: we chose the kind of turquoise colored ‘eucalyptus mint’ because its color matches the color of the accent mosaic glass tile and the wall color we used for our bathroom renovation …
I like all the products! The one we use the most is the surface cleaner. On heavy stains on the counter I just let it sit for a couple of min and it all comes off with one wipe. Its great.
baking soda and vinegar are basics here.
I love their french lavender spray all purpose cleaner.. though my hubby likes the cucumber!
As a rehabilitated Swiffer-mop user, I'm a huge fan of Method's Omop. I love the washable microfiber pad for cleaning floors, and the Omop's design is very ergonomic.
I love the free and clear detergent...easy on my baby girl's skin.
oops....here is my email:firstname.lastname@example.org
I love all the things purple, plus biodegradable wipes.
I love the foaming hand soap and the candles...I'd love to incorporate more Method products into my life, since now I have 2 little ones. It just feels more healthy to use Method rather than other crazy products.
I love the hand soap. I know this is silly but not only do I like the products for their earthly goodness but the packaging rocks.
I like to use products for cleaning that are safe for the human and for teh enviromant and non toxic. My cleaning tip: try reuseing while cleaning. Old t-shirts and clothes can make nice cleaning cloths, then you through it out, and (news)paper works when cleaning windows with the glass spray! Lets keep our home.
Sorry 'bout the repeat - forgot to include my email address! dagro1ataoldotcom
I love their surface cleaner...doesn't weird me out like 409 does.
I'm such a method junkie! Having a kid has turned me into an insta-germaphobe, but cleaning product residue where little hands touch also made me paranoid- so method's products have made me a tad more on the sane side (just a tad). Being green is another huge seller in our house.
My fave? The aroma sticks. My living rooms smells awesome!
My favorite is the lavender spray. When I love cleaning products makes me want to clean more!
I heart Method too! Their green tea+aloe hand wash is the reason my hands are always clean - I love that smell. And it's not "girly" enough and so the men in my house love it too :)
I am a bag lady. Er, bag lover. Wahoo! I just went out and purchased Method products for the first time. I got - microfiber cloths, dryer cloths, air freshener spray, and hand soap. Can't wait to try them out! Thanks for the giveaway!
I love a lot of the method products. I use their unscented laundry detergent and cucumber all-purpose cleaner all the time.
oh, how i love Method. My favorite products are the grapefruit dish soap, the bar soap and the spray bathroom cleaner. I like to take a shower, then spray down the walls and tub so it can soak in a little while I dry off and dress, and then wipe it clean after.
This is a great giveaway! I love their glass cleaner. The smell is much friendlier than typical glass cleaners and does a great job.
The all-purpose cleaning wipes are a must-have in our home... I use them for everything!!
I really like the method drying sheets - they smell so good!
i like the bag
fave product - all purpose cleaner spray
I like the creamy hand wash. Tip-7 minute rush. Set the timer for 7 minutes and have everyone pick up the house.
I've never tried their products before. I'd love to try them out! Anything lavendar or vanilla would be right up my alley.
I just bought the omop for my bathroom because I need products of convenience to be encouraged to clean in that room. The mop is right there and ready to go whenever I need it.
I love the wood polish spray. It smells like almonds/cherry and makes my coffee table shine. And I love the new cinnamon bark handsoap - I just bought some today!
I love Method! I have tried a bunch of their products and have not been disappointed! I love their Lavendar scent and the Euclyptus & Mint as well. And their handsoap is fabulous too! I could go on forever.....
I really want to try the compostable sweeping cloths and the microfiber pads
I love the foaming hand soap, not only is the bottle attractive but it leaves your skin feeling soft. My cleaning tip is using water and vinegar to clean my hardwood floors.
Oh I love their aroma beads!! But I also love their dish soap! It's all good!!
When it comes to cleaning I can use all the help I can get!
My favorite Method products is the wood floor polish. It smells great and does the job.
Love the stianless spray and anything pink grapefruit...
I love the hand wash -- currently using lavender but used green tea. I also like how Method has refill available.
My family uses the method bath soap and all purpose cleaner. We love method products.
I love their creamy hand soap in white tea. I have also used their laundry soap, which is great.
i love the method dish soap designed by karim rashid. it is so curvy and sexy!
MM I have been using method for years.
ive never used their products, but the laundry soap sounds nice.
my favorite is the stainless cleaner - great for getting tiny fingerprints off the refrigerator. Hmm, my tip? I use the old water/lemon combo in the microwave to loosen the gunk before wiping it down.
The method dishwash soap is by far my favorite (what a splendid design!). My secret cleanign method: Heinz white distilled vinegar. Cheap, effective and non toxic!
Let's see... I use Method's hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, and the Method mop with their wood cleaner and all purpose floor cleaner. (Yeah, I'm a loyal customer)
i have tro admit i loved the rosemary mint floor cleaner. i have a little bit that i'm rationing! i fill the sink with water, add a bit of that and clean bathroom surfaces, baseboards, windows, etc. i am allergic to ginger so the omop might not work for me. i know i don't have to eat it, but those of us with allergies know the deal! i see some things online that i haven't seen at target, so i'll order some!
I have always been a baking soda and vinegar cleaner. I love the method products as I can use the products and feel good about the environment and our health. Favs are the tub & tile spray and dish soup.
My favorite Method product right now is the wonderful almond smelling would floor cleaner. I could just eat it up!
I love the cucumber hand soap! For the shower and bath, I also use a mixture of water, vinegar, baking soda and a little bit of the cucumber hand soap. It cuts soap scum better than any bleach-based tile cleaner out there!
Love method products - can't leave Target without one in my basket.....
Love the omop, its an earth-friendly classy little step up from the swiffer.
I love the product packaging for Method. All their cleaners look so much fun, it actually makes me want to use them! My favorite is their grapefruit hand soap! Yummy!
I love their handsoaps, mainly sweet water. I have been dying to try their good for wood spray, it sounds fabulous.
thanks for the great cleaning tips!
I love the laundry liquid and counter sprays. I'd love to try the holiday scents.
We regularly use their hand soaps and dish soap, but love all of their products!
I've used Method since it first came out.

oh my cleaning tip: buy the Method hand soap refills in a different flavor each time!
I love Method products! My favorite is the pink grapefruit counter spray. It smells so fresh and yummy.
My favorite products are the bloq body bar, lotion, and wash.
I love the shower and bath cleaner. It's the only thing I can use right now that doesn't upset my sensitive, morning sick stomach.
I LOVE method. I have the air enhancer for the bathroom and it works SO much better than anything else we have had. Also, the counter top cleaner is just as good.
We use Method for our hand sanitizer. The holiday gift looks fantastic (includes a candle, aroma beads and more). While the looks don't help the functionality of the products, they sure make your house look beautiful.
I love Method! It makes me feel so much better to use non-toxin cleaners--especially with two small kiddos. On top of that, they smell amazing! My favorite products are Cucumber Melon all-purpose spray and the stainless steel cleaner. Hooray for Method!
Method is fantastic! I use it and give it as housewarming gifts and hostess gifts all the time. I am particularly fond of the furniture polish with the almond scent. It smells terrific and does a great job. My cleaning tip... I am a stasher.. I stash the cleaning wipes and other supplies all over the house... if I can reach it, I am much more quick to clean up a room while I am in it rather than having a long list of chores all over the house.
I love the mint window cleaner and lavender surface cleaner. They are so much lighter than other cleaners and yet still have an appealing scent - not toxic! Cleaning tips? I'm not the best person to ask about that! :) I guess, getting my kids to help out. The older two are 5 and 3 and enjoy dusting and wiping windows. I feel comfortable sending them with a bottle of Method and a rag to go off and bust the dust. :)
The green apple dish soap is my favorite! I love the design of the bottle and the sassy green color. My tip is that with Method products I feel great about letting my 3 yr old "Help" clean up. The surface wipes are safe for her to use and help me out!
I love their whole line and use it all. I think it smells great and the kids love it too.
this is the first time I've heard of Method. I'll have to look into them. =) I found reusable shopping bags at Walmart for $1 so I'm using those now when I shop! =)
I love the cucumber all purpose cleaner spray - reminds me of my favorite Keihl's scent!
I live in a small town and have never even heard of this company- would love to try it!
My obsession with Method products is a recent one. I love them all!
I love Method!! Their dryer sheets are fabulous--I could eat them. I also love their orange kitchen cleaner, cucumber all-purpose and lavender floor cleaner, oh, and their wood wipes.
method rocks! I love their dryer sheets and dish soap... yummy flavors and bio friendly:)
I love method's glass cleaner - it has a nice minty smell. My bio/kid-friendly cleaning tip is to clean the floors with vinegar/water.
I just started getting into method but I love those cleaning wipes---especially the grapefruit scent!
Hi.. my (new) favorite is the Eucalyptus Mint Hand Sanitizer they have. My tip is to ge those microfiber cloths - they work great without soap for small cleanups and get your stainless steel appliances looking so shiny without any work.
I have never used any of the Method products but have heard good things about them...And with a child in the house, I'm always looking for safe products to use. My cleaning tip would be to keep a roll of paper towels and some cleaning spray in each bathroom, that way it's easy access and a quick cleanup! Thanks for the chance to win!
I like the wood spray. It makes my living room smell like marzipan. :)
We really liked the baby detergent and I've been using the handsoaps for years...
I adore Method packaging and the scents. The handsoaps are my fave.
I first started using Method's hand soap almost three years ago. But my favorite product are the microfiber cloths, I absolutely hate using papertowels. I also love being able to buy refills, with less packaging waste.
I love their hand wash. I have used it for years. I would love to try some new products
I love their "home for the holidays kit", making every room in your home smell so yummy! Their cleaning wipes are wonderful, too. OH,and the sweeping clothes look fantastic...oh how I'd like to try them! Foaming soap is what I love best, as a cleaning tip...saves on water!
Love Method products! I use those as well as good ol' vinegar and water. Between the two, it's all I need to tackle my house!
I love their hand sanitizer that you can just throw in the diaper bag which is so valuable.
I LOVED the lavender floor cleaner they aren't making anymore (sob!) and we always have the handsoap next to every sink. My cleaning tip is that I clean the bathroom while my kids (big enough to play) are in the tub soaking and playing. I don't leave them alone, and I get the toilet, sink and floor done!
I love the hand wash. A cleaning tip is to wipe down the bathroom sink/counter with your hand towel when you replace it.
I am obsessed with Method products. I have their O-Mop -- amazing! It's so easy to use. But, my absolute favorite product is their wood floor cleaner. It smells like almonds mmmmmmm. I use it for dusting all my wood furniture as well as cleaning the floors.
We love Method at our house & use their products pretty exclusively. Some favorites are the lavender floor cleaner & the "good for wood" line which smells so lovely - like almond - YUM! Cleaning tip - put the kiddie clutter away each evening no matter how tired!
Method's Cucumber hand soap makes me happy every time I wash my hands.
I love the almond flower hand wash.
I love the creamy hand wash.
The o mop is amazing and gets under my kitchen cabinets from all angles.
I'm just discovering all the method products so my favorites at this point are the hand soaps b/c of their delicious clean scents. Check with me in a month and I'm sure I'll have more. My cleaning tip is citrus from a lemon. I use it to remove tough stains - but don't leave it on too long.
I have yet to purchase any Method, but my mother-in-law has the handsoap that smells just heavenly!
I love all their products... especially the almond flower scents.
