Cleaning Supply Review: Method Glass and Surface

Method Glass Review

 

*This is NOT a sponsored post, I pay full price for all my products and I am a regular paying consumer just like you*

Cost: $3.99 at Hannaford for 28 fl oz ($.14/oz vs Windex at $.11/oz)

Method products are advertised as eco-friendly appealing to customers wishing to inject a little “green living” into their homes.  This particular glass cleaner is said to have “ammonia-free plant based powergreen technology”.  When first picking this up in the store I had absolutely no idea what that meant (as most people probably don’t).  So… I did a little research and according to methodhome.com it means:

“powergreen™ technology is cutting-edge green chemistry that harnesses the strength of naturally derived, non-toxic ingredients to deliver a mighty cleaning punch.  In our glass cleaner, a corn-based solvent eliminates dirt, dust and pesky handprints, so ammonia is but a distant memory”

I’m still not 100% sure what it means but it is better than using nasty smelling ammonia.  From what I have researched so far I can tell that the Method Home company does in fact try to make the world better and does take steps to create products in a more sustainable way (at least according to them).  Their bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic (that’s good), they never test on animals (also good but not sure it is relevant to glass cleaner), and they seek to reduce their carbon footprint (good if they ARE reducing their carbon footprint).

Now, back to the product.  As far as glass cleaners go this one does work.  It does not streak and does a great job of cleaning glass and mirrors.  It is also labeled as a surface cleaner but it doesn’t necessarily have any anti-bacterial power so I personally wouldn’t use it there.

This product is mint scented.  I found that incredibly odd at first.  I don’t think I have ever bought any cleaning product with a mint scent before this one.  Personally I really don’t like the smell but it doesn’t linger and if you like mint I highly recommend it.  It also smells WAY better than Windex or ammonia.

Grade: B+

I give this a B+ because it does work.  However, it is $3.99 (compared to using vinegar at $.50 for the same amount) which is a little high for cleaning windows and mirrors.  I also really did not like the scent but I am going to be trying their other products soon and those scents look amazing!

If you have an extra $3.99 to spare and are in need of glass cleaner go ahead and buy this and know that the recycled plastic and lack of ammonia are doing just a little bit more to help “green” up the Earth.  Also if you like the scent of mint than definitely buy it!!

 

Have you tried any of Method’s products?  What are your thoughts?  Which ones would you like to see reviewed?

Scent Booster Pinterest Adventures

Pin Worth Trying!

I love Pinterest!  I always find amazing tips, DIYs, and recipes that I never would have thought of.  Since signing up with Pinterest I have tried many (many) of the pins I was intrigued by.  I will be sharing with you the trials & tribulations of various pins I have tried and how they worked out.  Today we will start with an easy one that you can try today!

The original pin (the one I found) came from Amber at Texas Tales (Bells and Kilts)

Use Downy Unstoppable Scented Wax Beads in your tart warmer as an air freshener.  I have tried this trick and I love it.  It makes the whole house smell like clean laundry (if you like that) and since it is being warmed with a candle the scent lasts at least as long as your candle does.  These also pop out of my tart warmer much easier than Yankee Candle tarts.  As much as I love the scent and dual purpose, take the cost into consideration.  These little scent boosters are super expensive and you can go through them incredibly fast.  If the cost doesn’t bother you, do it!

Do you have any pins you are scared to try?  What have you pinned that you are curious about?  Let me know and I will try them out and let you know how they work out!
