foaming hand wash


foaming at the mouth, bad. foaming at the sink, fun.

foamy stuff. it’s just one of those things that everybody likes. kind of like marshmallows and puppies, but without all the calories and obedience classes. so pump, lather, smile and the next thing you know your hands are soft and clean. what’s not to love? especially when the formula is biodegradable, naturally derived and contains no dirty ingredients.

    blue poppy

    how many times have you thought to yourself, “no one ever sends me flowers. I should buy myself flowers,” and then not followed through? us too. so we came up with a solution: the scent of sun-drenched wildflowers. even better? no wilting.


    french lavender

    is there really any other kind? this enchanting medley of lavender, bergamot, purple sage + chamomile is like a brief respite to the french countryside. incidentally, to the exact coordinates where the sun always shines + all of your cleaning fantasies come true.


    green tea + aloe

    bliss can be defined in a lot of ways. drinks with umbrellas come to mind. but if you were to express it through a scent, it would probably be something very close to this soothing fusion of fresh ivy, agave, green tea + aloe vera.


    hibiscus flower

    take in the aqueous blend of ripe fruit + summer blooms wrapped in a sheer musk. it’s cool and calm, bright and cheery. this is the scent of the classic surfer girl, bottled for use all year 'round.


    juicy pear

    just because eating a juicy pear results in sticky hands and a wet face, doesn’t mean we avoid them. as a matter of fact, it sort of inspired us to create this mouth-watering scent of pears, apples + melons. enjoy the same luscious sweetness, but without all the mess.


    pink grapefruit

    there are certain scents that seem to put an extra spring in your step. like this refreshing fusion of pink grapefruit, blood orange + cassis. in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this vibrant medley induces spontaneous skipping. it’s been known to happen.


    sea minerals

    it seems like every time fresh + clean get together, something wonderful happens. uniting in this watery blend of bergamot, lemon + rosemary, with crisp marine notes is no exception. it’s like a mini-vacation to the seaside, minus the sand in your crevices.


    sweet water™

    if we had a signature scent, it would probably be this. sweet water is like a cool splash of grapefruit + lemon leaves wrapped in watery petals of star jasmine + lily of the valley. it’s rumored that water from the fountain of youth smells similarly.



    since it’s not practical to call it quits on reality and retreat to Windermere Island, consider this your temporary solution. your 15-second escape. your oasis in a desert of routine. surrender to the scent of cool, cascading water lily + sandalwood.

I will never buy Bath and Body Works hand soap again! My hands have never been softer, and it is amazing how easily it takes away odors on your hands!! It’s like you never chopped those onions! Fabulous! Will continue to buy Method soap and I can’t wait to try all of your other products!

excellent product

I actually bought this for the bottle. It can be hard to find decent foaming pumps o use with bulk refills. The green tea scent smells so nice however and the soap works so well I may have to rethink things. Too bad green tea isn’t sold in bulk bags. I’ll have to test the two that are.

Works great until refill

This product works fantastic. However, when you have to refill it, it become all gurgly and dispenses even more product.

Green? Not.

You can’t call your product green and safe when it contains sls which people are deathly allergic to.
There are other alternatives, you know.

Green Tea + Aloe!

This is my favorite soap ever. The scent is so fresh and light and it’s perfect for both women and men (my boyfriend hates smelling like flowers). The foam rinses clean and feels less wasteful than gel soap.

My only minor gripe is that the color is a bit too intense. It needs to be rinsed out of the sink after each use. Less dye and it would be absolute perfection.

Sea Minerals is the one for me...

Probably my favorite method product of all time! It makes washing hand fun while also rewarding you with a unique scent that I have yet to find anywhere else. As someone who has never met anyone with larger hands than myself, I was surprised to find out that I only needed two pumps, since I usually need three. Sometimes the bottom of the bottle can take in/exchange some water, but you’ll go through it so fast, that probably won’t matter. The only other downside I can find to this product is that it can be pretty challenging to find the refill packages for Sea Minerals. They usually carry sweet water, but never Sea Minerals (at least at Canadian Tire).

Sea Minerals is the *bomb!*

Only the coconut & honey in the moisturizing hand cleaner can top it. This is especially appreciated in the bathroom (my nieces love the foamy thing) and it works for me

Love it!

I absolutely love Method’s Foaming Hand Wash in Sweet Water. It cleans and rinses well, never dries out our hands or leaves a film. The container is attractive and not too bright or gaudy to leave on the counter. And it smells absolutely divine! Best ever

rinses well

I like the foaming soap because it rinses away when you wash so you aren’t left with soap residue on your hands. That can’t be good. My hands feel clean after washing with foaming hand wash. Smells good, too. Attractive on the sing vanity. And the bottle is nicely designed so it is stable and not falling over into the sink.

LOVE this product!

Sea Mineral Foaming Hand Wash ROCKS!!!! We keep this by the kitchen sink and it’s so easy to just pump a bit into your hands (a little goes a long way). Leaves our hands squeaky clean without drying. LOVE that we can just refill it with the super easy refill bag. I’m proud to be a Method Mama.

Great pump

This is the first pump I have used that actually gets all of the soap out of the bottom of the container so there is none wasted.
