I love the baby detergent... my daughter has very sensitive skin, and hasn't had any breakouts since we started using it.
The Method microfiber cloths work great on each of the different surfaces that go with their cleaner counterparts. Using a microfiber cloth on my windows, mirrors, and appliances is the only thing I have tried that gets them clean and streak- free with the least amount of effort.
How about that Peppermint Vanilla dish soap! The smell is INCREDIBLE!
I love the hand soap, with its great fragrances, and the laundry detergent.
We love the stainless steel polish and the microfiber cloth. The polish makes out stainless glow and the cloth can be tossed into the washer after every 2nd use or so.
I love, love, love the wipes, especially the grapefruit ones! I always worried about what was in the wipes that could harm my baby, now I don't wonder and I don't worry! The scents are just wonderful!
I know it's not the most glamorous thing, but they make a eucolyptus scented toilet cleaner that's pretty awesome.
I love the shower cleaner that you spray on and leave on. It has ylang ylang in it and it leaves my whole bathroom smelling wonderful.
I am turned on to everything Method! It's hard to pick a favorite. My kids love the hand soap - they love the fragrances and it's not too harsh on their sensitive skin. I love the stainless steel wipes and their counter cleaners.
I love the all purpose spray which smells like peppermint. Makes cleaner a bit nicer.
I've only used the all purpose bathroom cleaner. I like that it doesn't have a harsh smell and that your skin doesn't feel weird if you happen to get it on you.
I love the pink grapefruit dish soap-yummy!!
The pink grapefruit dishsoap as well but after going to their site, I'm now going to need to try out the Le Scrub for the tub.
I love the dryer clothes - they make my clothes smell so good and feel so soft. But I also love the hand soap, because that's what I use more than anything. The delicious hollyberry scent! Yum!
I just started using their products and love their All Surface cleaner in the Cucumber scent and the wood floor cleaner with almond scent. Cleaning is a lot more fun when you like the smell of the cleaners, and they aren't burning your nose! :)
Where do I even start? I love the pink grapefruit all purpose cleaner - I use it on almost everything and don't worry about it. I love the cucumber toilet wipes - my husband has become quite acquainted with those. I love the handsoap. I am really excited about their new line.
Very actually! I should receive this prize and present its my niece!
My favorites include the foaming hand soap, almond floor cleaner & cloth, and dish soap. If only they had lotion in a pump (for after you wash your hands!)
I registered for the baby stuff and have loved the baby laundry detergent for a few years now with the first little guy.
I'm probably one of the very few who hasn't used method home products yet, but they sound wonderful ~ and safe to use! *Thanks* for the giveaway.
fave method products = their free and clear line. Most products are over scented and we prefer the "open window, fresh air" smell.
I haven't used these products before but looking at the site I like the idea of the detox kit/set, my house could use some "safe" detoxing with a baby crawling around! Thanks for the giveaway!
I like having the hand sanitizer available when we are out. I like that it's triclosan free too :)
Oh I LOVE the mint window wash...love that smell, the almond wood floor cleaner those are my fav.
ok, so i LOVE it all, and they all smell so stinkin fresh - can i say stinkin? anyway, but my fav is the dish soap that smells like lavender. and i am looking forward to their baby products with much anticipation!
oh this looks so nice i love to try them all if i win this it will help me out a lot thanks

I have only used Method hand soap and I loved it - I would love to try more of their products because they seem to smell nice, work well, and be good for you :)
I have never used Method's products, but I have to say I'm sold on them now. I can't wait to try out their products, ESPECIALLY the new baby line (I'm due with my first in June)!
I love the Method leather wipes - I have two leather ottomans and these wipes keep them looking brand new! I have a 10 month-old baby girl and I would love to try these new products! Please pick me!
Hands down! It's the liquid hand soaps our family loves. They all smell very pleasant, but they also help keep our family healthy.
I like the hand soap and the aroma pill but my very favorite is the O-Mop and wood floor cleaner. Almond scent almost makes mopping less of a chore...
The everyday liquid hand soap "go naked" is this family's favorite. Not at all harsh on our sensitive skin--and we are ALWAYS washing our hands!
I like Method stainless steel cleaner and any products with the grapefruit scent. I like Method but I wish they'd publish and be more open about their ingredients. I had a friend with leukemia who couldn't use them b/c there wasn't enough disclosure on use of petroleum based ingredients. Just some feedback for them!
I must admit I am yet to try method - even though they always catch my eye in the store and I love the organic aspect
I love love love the wood floor cleaner. It smells so clean without smelling like pine!
I Love the hand soap. Smells so yummy!
i love the other method cleaning products so i can't wait to try these out.
These products sound great! I would like to make up a gift basket using them for a shower gift. I know the new mom would love them.
I love Method's Go Naked wipes for the house - I use them to clean everything and they work really well. They even got mushy teething biscuit goo off on my toddler's exersaucer! I also like the Go Naked hand wash - we have a bottle at every sink in the house.
I didn't know much about Method when I bought my cleaner. I was simply looking for something that was more natural and fragrance free. I love using it to clean my bathroom and not ending up with a headache from the fumes and smell of other cleaners (as I am super sensitive to smell) It even beats out the Clorox Green works that I won. I will continue to buy it and I would love to try the baby products!

I love the all purpose bathroom stuff! I try to make up my own eco friendly cleaning stuff most times but when I want to treat myself I usually get method cause I can still feel good about the non scary chemicals!
My fav is the mint window wash. Mmmmm, how I love to wash my windows! And the almond 'wood for good' floor cleaner, I have turned SO many people on to that one.
the baby laundry soap because it is gentle and eco-friendly.
Greetings! I like the "Detox Your Home Kit!" Pleas enter me in your drawing. I am out of most of these goodies and would love to win! Please enter me in your drawing. Many thanks,Cindi
I love the idea of green, safe products for baby...I love the hand soap and the dish soap. With new baby on the way this product would be much appreciated and used.
The aroma beads look very cool...between the cats and the toddler, I'd love to find something eco-friendly to subtly provide a more welcoming fragrance in the house.
My favorite products from Method are : The Al-purpose spray. It works fantastic and the french lavender scent beats pine-sol anyday and The Foaming handwash. It works great and its safe for my kids. We got thru alot of the stuff around here.
I love the shower cleaner, it's so easy to use. "I hate to cean the shower"
the shower cleaner
This is my first introduction to the products but after reading what others who have used them are saying, I am really excited about them.
I love the Method handsoap - the scents, colors, and containers!!
Love the wipes-great to have nontoxic products!
I like the wood floor cleaner
the detergent due to sensitive skin.
I haven't had the pleasure of using it yet. I've been using vinegar and water to clean, but I'm always on the lookout for great eco-friendly products!!!
I love Method's All Purpose Cleaner. I can clean counters, doorknobs, dvd players anything really and its not at all toxic to little bodies.
I love the method detergent. It cleans just as well and I use so much less of it!
The mint window wash is great..the smell is amazing compared to other window cleaners. bebemiqui82(at)yahoo(dot)com
I love the baby detergent. :-)
haven;t tried them , so don;t have a favor
the all purpose cleaner really seems to do the trick
I haven't used Method products yet, but a friend last week, was just telling me about the wonderful dish soaps that they have. Please enter me and thanks for this giveaway.
I haven't tried any Method products. I'd like to though. Thanks for entering me too.
I LOVE my Method Products.
I love the baby detergent... It would be great for babies sensitive skin!!!!!!!
I love the all purpose peppermint cleaner. It smells fantastic and really gets the job done!
The only method product Ive owned was the baby detergent and it works GREAT!!
The Bathroom cleaner smells awesome!
With a new grandson, I would love to try the baby detergent, I certainly don't want any chemicals on his precious little body.
I don't have access to method products in a local store. I would love to try them, though. Maybe I can get my local coop to start carrying Method products.
My favorite would have to be th pink grapefruit dish soap. I love that smell!!!
Dishwasher cubes--but I don't know if they make them anymore. I haven't been able to find them lately, and I miss them terribly!
I love the 3-n-1 wash!
I've been using their all-purpose cleanser lately. I like that I can use it in every room, so it ends up saving me money (and saving packaging from having a ton of different products).
We use the all purpose spray and love it.
I love the ginger floor cleaner, the peppermint hand soap from the holidays, and the window cleaner. All of the products are great and I am never disappointed by Method.
pink grapefruit dish soap
I love the all purpose spray! It's wonderful!
I love that people are trying to change the enviroment for the better. I've been recycling for about 10 years. Please enter me, thank you
We use lots of Method products... spray cleaner, stainless steel wipes, wood polish spray, dish soap, hand soap.... they work great and I love them all! I feel good using them around my kids..
My favorite product is the mint window wash. It does such a good job and smells great too!
I use all Method products in my home, my husband is very sensitve to cleaner smells and Method products are not only eco-friendly but husband friendly.
I love, love the Method cucumber dish soap. Tons of frothy bubbles, super scent, great product!
Method brand makes great cleaning peroduct.
I raelly like the stainless steel cleaner. Competing products can be pretty toxic.
I really love the everywhere surface cleaner, especially in Cucumber. I'm starting to associate the scent of Cucumber with a clean house!
Wow. I have so many faves!
I am finally getting my boys to wash their hands after the restroom thanks to the wonderful liquid hand soap.
I like the hand soap because I don't have to worry about my son not rinsing it well enough.
I LOVE Method products! I especially like the hand soaps and the kitchen cleaners 'cause I have little ones in the house and I don't have to worry about how the harsh chemicals are affecting them...
I love the Hand Sanitizer! Can't have enough.
I like the dish soap and hand soap. They smell great - and are earth-friendly!
I have not had the opportunity to try the method products yet, but I am headed to the store this week!
I like the handsoaps because (don't laugh) I really like the shape of the container.
The dish detergent. I've tried all the 'naturals' an this one has bubbles that last.
I love the method laundry detergent, hand soaps, and counter top spray. It was the first change I made when deciding to go green as my new years resolution.
the dish deterget
I don't have a favorite because I have never tried these products. I would love to though!
I have never tried these, but would love to with our toddler.
i haven't tried these but the peppermint vanilla dish soap sounds amazing
I've never used any Method products so I don't have a favorite. But - I'd love to try their non-toxic cleaners.
I love the all purpose cleaner, because it's all purpose!
I love their line of cleaning products. My sis-in-law gave them to me for our wedding, and I love them...
love the baby laundry detergent. I worry about his sensitive skin

I have Multiple Chemical Sensitives so I love Method! My favorite thing is the laundry det. It's the best safe one I have used! I hope I can win this. :)
I recently started using the Method line and I love it! I use the Granite for Good and Wood for Good almost every day. I love the way the products smell and I'm sure they help in not making our allergies worse.
Love Love the wipes
This sounds like an amazing product!
I've only ever used the hand soap, but am super excited about the new baby line!
the shower cleaner is my fav. it really works!!
I would love to try the baby and detox products! I do love their hand soap but haven't had the chance to try anything else! Would love to try them out!
with little ones around i love the method line of cleaning products. i love the hand soap, the shower cleaner, the Grannite for good and wood and they work work work.
I have never tried Method. My local stores don't carry it.
I love their basic cleaning spray. My little ones love to help me clean and that's the only cleaner (I'm still switching over) that I allow them to use (with supervision of course!) I would love to get all this stuff.
Great prize! I'd love to be included.
I have yet to try the Method products, but they sound wonderful and I'll have to see if I can find them locally. Thanks for the chance to win some!
I just discovered their furniture wipes and was really pleased.
Love the dish cleaners--in scents you can't find anywhere else, like lavendar!
I've used the hand soap at a friend's house. Does that count?
I love the laundry detergent
I know this isn't a terribly "earthy" reason, but I really like their packaging--it's attractive.
Lil' Bowl Blue! Our bathroom is always nasty with 4 boys in the house!
I use their green tea hand soap.
I would love to use the stainless steel cleaner!
I love them all. We use the detergent, the cleaning supplies, the dish soap, and the hand soap. I think the reason I like them so much is that I know they are not harmful to my family. The pink grapefruit dish soap is probably my favorite of all. It does a good job at cutting grease and cleaning my dishes, and it smells great.
The method wood cleaner is all I use on my wood floors and the granite cleaner does a perfect streak free shine on my granite counters.
i love the hand soap and the bathroom cleaner - the smell is great & doesn't give me a headache like most other cleaners do!
the peppermint all purpose cleaner
I've seen Method products but haven't tried them - YET - but after seeing this and reading all the great recomendations I will be trying several - I really need to educate myself and switch to a healthier - GREENER way of cleaning and living - I recently tried Green clean or whatever the name is of the new natural cleaner by clorox... but this sounds even better!
I love their hand cleanser. My son likes the bright green color and the neat dispenser. I like the smell too!
My favorite method product is their tub and tile cleaner. I use it in our bathrooms, and it has the scent of ylang ylang, but honestly I think it smells like baby powder, and I probably use a little more than needed because I love the smell so much. The thing I like best about it though, is that should I not rinse well enough after cleaning, I do not have to be afraid of my daughter touching the tub walls and such.
Oh I love Method products! They work good, they smell good, and they are just plain good all around. I'd love to try out their new baby line & read the book too. Thanks!
I've only used the hand soap so far, but I like that a lot. It smells delicious.
I currently use the pink grapefruit dish soap, hand soap and spray cleaner. I love them all. I have never seen their line of baby products but if I ever do I will definately give them a try. Please sign me up for your giveaway!
I love the microfiber cloth for cleaning windows and mirrors!
I've actually never bought any method products. I have used their hand soap at a friends house and I liked it, but have yet to buy any myself. I'd love a chance to win! Thanks!
I would love to try any of the baby products. This is something I've been really interested in lately. sharlacarbine at gmail dot com
I love the shower cleaner...my bathroom smells so yummy!
My favorite Method products are their Free and Clear detergent, tub and tile cleaner and mint window wash. The window cleaner is the one where I notice the biggest difference in smell. I cant stand the strong smell of normal glass cleaner anymore. Thanks!
We use their daily shower cleaner as well as their floor cleaner. Our new house will have stainless steel and I plan to use their cleaner for that. I was at Target the other day and they had their shower gel on clearance so I stocked up on their green mint...I look forward to trying it.
Pink Grapefruit All-Purpose Spray
We like the dishwashing liquid. I think it's Method dryer sheets that I've been using, too. (I wish they were available more places, though. Target is not a convenient place for us to shop.)
hand wash sea minerals because I'm always washing my hands
the dish soaps, the scents are heavenly and the dish get clean easily
I would love to try out the laundry soap for my daughter's ultra-sensitive skin.
To be honest, I've only used the Baby Detergent. but it has sold me on trying some more of their products!
The 3-in-1 baby wash looks really nice.
I love the Method bath products. I use to clean my bathroom while my kids are taking a bath. They are time and Earth savers.
I have never used Method products before. My husband and I have recently started our journey on getting green. I would love to win this!
Their baby detergent is the best. I don't think I will ever go back to anything else.
I love their dish soaps and hand soaps, but I would love to try more of their products!
I love the hand soap, that is all I have tried but would love to try more. Thanks for hosting this giveaway.
I've never tried them before, but would love to!
I love the pink grapefruit surface cleaner - so fresh smelling!
I love all of the products, especially the shower cleaner. It really works. I was stuck only on the Mrs. Meyer's but I have to travel over an hour to get to the store that sells it, so I gave the Method a shot and love it too!!!
Love their hand soaps. They smell so good and good for the environment too!
I'd love to win this selection!
I love the dish soap. I feel like I am doing something good for my son when I wash his bottles with it.
I know, I know....it's terrible, but I've never gotten to try Method products. They're on my current shopping list, though, for this week! Though I've never tried their stuff, the bathroom cleaner sounds like my first pick. Thanks! ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
I have never tried Method!!! I am trying to be very Green---we recycle everything, wash on cold, use CFLs, etc.
i've only ever tried their hand soap, but i've heard good things about the laundry detergent. would love to try more stuff!
I have their wood cleaner and love the smell!
Love their green tea hand wash!
I have been wanting to try these products!
I've only used their hand soaps, but I really like them. The scents are amazing.
I haven't tried these products YET. But would be interested in the all purpose cleaner considering my 10month old son licks everything!
I haven't tried these yet but would love to!
We love the handsoaps. They smell good and work wonderfully.
M favorite Method product is the Peppermint Vanilla Countertop Cleaner. It smells so good and leaves surfaces shiny and bright.
Definately the baby detergent. Some regular brands are ok for me to use, but mostly I have to stick to these kinds of baby detergents for my daughter.
I've honestly never used any method products but that doesn't mean I wouldn't like to. ;)
I've used the method handsoap at work - since we touch much of what goes into our mouths, it's good to have dirt, germ AND chemical free hands.
I love the method go naked surface spray and wipes-- use them everyday!
Mine would be the baby laundry detergent. I have to be so careful what I wash my son's clothes in.
I love the multi purpose "naked" product, but i also love the hand soap. Thanks!
I didn't even know they had home products. I just found out about Method when I bought my first item: Method Bar. I can't wait to try it. It smells so good. :)
I have never even heard of these products so I don't have a favorite! But, I'd love to have a chance to try them - they sound wonderful!
I love love love my OMop.
I love the grapefruit scented products. I'm in!
I haven't used Method before so I'm not sure what my favorite product would be - probably the multipurpose cleaner. I've heard a lot of good things about the brand and have been wanting to try them.
I've only tried Method's handsoap, but I would really like to try the Fuzzy Peach 3 in 1 kids shampoo. It looks like an awesome shampoo and the bottle is really cute too.
I've never used Method before but I would love to give it a try!
I like the method lavender hand soap. I just love the smell of laverder.
I would love to try the lil' bowl blu . I also think their microfiber cloths are great!
I cannot bay to try method products...and am positive I will have a hard time choosing a favorite! email@example.com
I love their handsoaps! :)
we use the handsoap, glass cleaner, all purpose spray, disposable cloth cleaner...tried the laundry softner and it smelled though...good firstname.lastname@example.org ... heidi
I love the Method hand soap. It works great and the packaging is stylish.
I luuuurve me some Method! My favorite is probably the new little bowl Bly toilet cleaner. We've been using other natural john cleaners Gor years and all have required serious scrubbing and smelled AWFUL! This one works like the conventional stuff and smells yum!
i love the hand soap as well as the cleaner for all the stainless stell appliances.
I love the wipes!
So far I've only tried Method hand soap, but I liked it.
