squirt + mop wood floor cleaner
no-wax, all good
we used to reserve our floor cleaning for very special occasions—like limbo night or the queen’s visit. but this non-toxic + biodegradable no-wax wood floor cleaner turns a chore into an almond-scented delight. just squirt, mop and bask in the glow of a gleaming clean. formulated for sealed hardwood and laminate floors.
what's that smell?
rich. nutty. good with chocolate. if these were clues in a game show, you’d guess almond. and you would be right. of course, the answer could also be macadamia. or willy wonka.

Favorite wood cleaner:)
I went to my local Hannafords to buy more Method almond cleaner. they didn’t have any on the shelves. I spoke to the assistant manager and she believed it had been discontinued! She gave me a free bottle of Method all purpose cleaner. It does work on most everything but doesn’t give the glow of the wood cleaner. Also the lavender scent is really strong and smells odd in the kitchen. where canI I buy the wood cleaner locally?
Some good, Some bad
My cleaner uses this once a week on my light colored hardwood floor…no problems, and I’m planning on purchasing some myself for the days inbetween… smells great and my dogs can pretty much eat it and I don’t have to worry but if you have a dark colored hardwood floor its a bad choice of cleaner…method really needs to put this on the label, I see a large number of you are quite dissatisfied with it and honestly I would be too.
horrible cloudy film
I am so upset about this product. I read so many great reviews and decided to buy it for my lovely Iroko wood floor that is just 6 months old. What a disaster. I have this dreadful cloudy film all over the floor now and I cannot get it removed. I have been so proud of this floor that I saved up for a long while to get and now it is ruined. I also have spent over £20 on the box of this from Amazon
I LOVE USING THIS PRODUCT ON SOME WOOD FLOORS NOT ALL WOOD FLOORS CAN HANDLE THIS PRODUCT ESPECIALLY THE DARKER WOODS LIKE DARK BROWN TO BLACK IT WILL LEAVE A STREAKS.HAVE TO GO WITH THE GRAIN OF THE WOOD. LITE COLOR FLOORS IT WORKS GREAT BUT THE DARK’S SOMETIMES HAVE A PROBLEM WITH NOT SURE WHY.SOMETIMES DEPENDING ON THE WOOD IF IT HAS A SEAL SHOULD ALWAYS TRY IN ONE SPOT BEFORE DOING THE ENTIRE HOUSE WITH IT.
BUT GREAT ALMOND SCENT DOES LINGERER AROUND FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
I WANT to love this...
I love Method’s other wood products but I wish I could like this one as well. The scent is great, and the floors look great right after I clean them. But once it dries it leave a film on the floor that I can’t get off. Anyone know what causes this? I have had similar problems with other brands too but Method actually seems to read their reviews so maybe an improvement is in the works.
It Really Works!!!!
I read the reveiws and tried it today (almond). I am going to order these other scents as the almond scent is the only one I found locally. We have countless cleaners for wood flooring in our cupboards not one has worked, we found one that worked but the toxic smell was so bad, to use it we had to open all the windows. I have used steamops, the leading squirt mops. They left the wood flooring cloudy. If you had to walk on the flooring before it dried it left footprints. I had given up, til today. Today I am looking at clean wood floors that are shiny!!! The smell is delightful. It was so easy, I squirted it on and used a micro fiber mop and I’m done!!
I have used this product for a while now but I was impressed, AGAIN. I did my parquet dining room floor yesterday. It looks great, and I was impressed all over again when I got up this morning and went downstairs to make coffee. That wonderful almond smell still lingers. A nice greeting first thing in the morning :)
I have awful finished walnut flooring. Its so hard to keep clean and loads of other cleaners leave a foggy, waxy residue which your little feet leave shiny (indents) in the residue. I love this cleaner! It hardly leaves a residue, and if you mix it with some hot tap water, it makes everything feel clean and sanitized. I have reccomended this product to other people with hardwood floors and I will continue using this product as long as i have wood floors. Also, I love the scent.
Awesome on acacia
I’ve tried a few other hardwood floor cleaners, I like this one the best. I don’t actively buy “green” cleaners. It cleans well, it leaves your wood fun to walk on, and it smells good. I have to admit that I’m not a fan of the fact that it does leave a baby powder scent when it dries, but it disappears quickly. It doesn’t leave a greasy (and therefore dangerous) sheen on your floors, but it does enhance wood’s natural sheen and beauty. It’s easy to use. It’s affordable at around $6 a pop. I’ll keep trying different cleaners, but so far this one is my No. 1 pick.
smells like baby's bottom-blek
Since Target stopped carrying the Method Lemon Ginger floor cleaner that I used to buy up by the crate and use like a crazy fiend, I have to go back to making my own because I just can’t stand the cloying, powdery, lingering offgasing of this Almond one! As for cleaning power, it’s just average.
After my Walmart stopped carrying Bona,I tried every other thing in the store and wasn’t impressed. But I had to go to Target(which is way out of my way),and bought some of this and I LOVE it,I’ve even bought it for other people too and they love it. I’m sure I can find Bona somewhere else,but I don’t even want it now.I just make regular trips to Target and buy in bulk. This stuff not only works great but it smells amazing. I also bought the wood furniture cleaner,granite spray,and mopping stuff. All of it works and smells awesome.I don’t even feel like my house is clean until I use all those products.
Did a terrible number on my hardwood floors
This also left a cloudy, hazy film all over my floors, after using it once as directed. Not only do my floors look very dull, and have a film on them, but wherever I squirted this product on to the floor, it left marks that are still faintly there even after much scrubbing. I didn’t use very much of the product, and I used a large bucket of water while cleaning yet this still left a terrible film on my floors. I’ve gone over my floors with diluted vinegar, and dish soap and it’s very slightly improved although there are still slight marks every single place I “squirted’ this on my floor. I have regular hard wood floors that were quite nice and shiny before using this. Will never be using this again, nor would I recommend it.
All around excellent - my new favorite product
I know it may be a little silly to get excited about home cleaning products, but this stuff is the bomb! Works amazing, super easy to use, doesn’t leave streaks, smells delicious! I was at first concerned about nut allergy, but read in the FAQs that Method uses synthetic nut scents, so no worries on that.
Hands down my favorite cleaning product!
Cleans floors so much nicer and easier than Orange Glo
I love this wood floor cleaner. When we first had hard wood floors put in my dining room, it seemed the only cleaner around was Orange Glo. I was not happy with that stuff at all. If there was anything stuck on the floor I had to go back and scrub it with a sponge. I found the method cleaner and decided to try that. I was trying to convert to greener cleaners anyway. I was so impressed with how well this stuff works. Everything comes up with hardly any effort.
love the smell !!!
this stuff is awesome it cleans and makes my floor shine plus its good for the environment…but the smell is awesome and stays around unlike so many other cleaners on the market….i try to stay away from chemicals i once had vertigo for 3 weeks (i didnt have a ear problem) i worked in chemicals where i worked and since i had that experience i dont want to use chemicals in my home around my children (other cleaners fumes are bad plus some are linked to cancer) plus i have read some blogs on how some of the chemicals in cleaners are causing dogs to have seizures so i choose non chemicals for my home….and this product is awesome actually 5 stars isnt even enough i give it a 10
Squirt and Mop
I run a small kennel with 6 Havanese that is 24 dirty paws to wipe up after all day.
I find this product amazing ! The smell , and most of all how clean my floors are !!!!
The dogs can run and play on it and I am not afraid they will get sick licking their paws, Best of all it can be used daily no build up of wax !!!!!!!!!
Looking forward to purchasing more Method products !
New Favorit-ist Product yet!
I used the yellow bottle until I got wood-laminate flooring, and used what Home Depot recommended for cleaning. That stuff left a horrible film. Bought one bottle, and Oh My GOD! It removed the cloudy film from before, smelled FANTASTIC, and left my floor sparkling clean. Woot for perfectly clean floors, at least until my boys get home from school!
Left cloudy film/residue all over floor
I was so happy to find an environmentally-friendly product to clean my maple hardwood floors, couldn’t wait to try it. I mopped my entire main floor last evening and this morning with the daylight/sun shining in, I was mortified to see a hazy film/residue over every single square inch of my floors. In reading others’ reviews of this product online this evening, I sadly see I’m not the only one who’s experienced this. Perhaps if one’s hardwood floors are light colored it wouldn’t be as noticeable but because my floors are darker (basically the shade of the floor cleaner itself), you couldn’t miss the dismal appearance. I’ve always loved and purchased almost all of the Method products, so I’m really very disappointed. If anyone has any suggestion on how to use this product without ending up with a horrible hazy film/residue all over my floors, I am all for it. I poured the product into the container attached to the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop, the mop pad was brand new/clean.
Newb with Wood Floors? No worries.
So we’ve been living in this condo for a while, and I’m not sure about how to clean it off. I tried putting this off for a while because I was just not confident in my ability. So, being a Method nerd, I picked up this bottle and set about doing my work. Amazing. Seriously, is it that easy? Squirt it? Mop it? Okay!
So now my floors are clean. Wonderful. Beautiful. And the smell? Oh yeaaaaaahhhhh. Makes me want to mop my floor again. Not really, but you know what I mean! Love it!
MY FAVORITE METHOD PRODUCT
I have to say that I am truly impressed with this floor cleaner. We recently got new wood floors and they continue to look brand new with this cleaner. There are some cleaners that leave little track marks when you start walking on them. This is not the case and I love the scent. I use a microfiber mop and this is the only way I will clean the floors now….I have recommended to everyone…
Amazing Wood for Good cleaner- Almond Scent
My son is almost 2 years old and recently we decided to start cleaning our home ourselves. WOW!!! What a difference it has made using your Non-Toxic Wood for Good product!!! It is absolutely amazing and the Almond smell is so incredible. Plus, it works so incredible well on my hard-wood floors!!
My son loves the taste!
Besides the best clean and the yummy smell… when my son was a toddler he use to lick the floors because he like the smell so much. Thankfully I did not have to worry as much about the chemicals as I would with other brands. I do not nor have I ever advocated him doing it and I would not give it to him in a cup but it was certainly necessary to keep him off the floors right after I mopped lol
Best clean ever!
Other wood floor cleaners have left a bit of residue that marks up and streaks, especially with bare feet. I don’t want to see foot marks on my freshly cleaned floor! Not the case with Method Squirt + Mop Floor Cleaner. A perfect product for our pretty floors. I can’t forget to mention the delish smell of this cleaner. These Method Men have this down. Can’t wait for even more products to come our way.
smells so good
This is just a heavenly clean smell. I love to clean my wood floors cause this smells so incredible. The only other thing I use on my wood floors is a refinishing solution, but I have only used it once in the year we have been in this house cause this floor cleaner is so good I don’t really need to use it unless we get scratches in the wood that I can’t get out otherwise.
Best wood cleaner on the market, hands down
I was nervous about having my wood floors refinished because I know how fussy cleaning (I mean really cleaning) a wood floor can be. I generally put a lot of trust in Method products because they use such responsible and effective ingredients, and this product is another hit. The squirt+mop cleans up my floors without leaving a damaging residue, and smells absolutely amazing to boot. I can rest assured that my floors are clean and free of any lasting chemical residue that will eat away at them over time.
My only regret is that this scent is not available in another product!
