gel hand wash refill


refill not landfill

glasses are better half-full. hand wash bottles, too. better yet, totally full. and for that, we offer this refill. it’s full of enough biodegradable, naturally derived gel hand wash to refill your bottle nearly 3x. because the only thing worse than dirty hands is employing jeans-wiping as an interim solution.

    the natural cucumber extract with bursts of light citrus is like a spa day in a bottle. it’s crisp, cool + refreshing, just like the vegetable itself. only better, because it cleans. for best results, use while wearing a white, fluffy robe.


    free of dyes + perfumes

    shamelessly clean. no dyes. no perfumes.


    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.


    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.

Very drying

Can you offer a moisturizing liquid hand soap? I have used all the varieties you offer, and I find that my hands are terribly dry. I wash my hands a lot taking care of a little one.
Thank you

Hand soap is staining sink, counter & towels!

Soo incredibly bummed by the Green Tea & Aloe Gel Hand Wash Refill. It will leave stains on just about anything I touch after washing my hands. If some should remain in the basin after washing my hands, I have to actually scrub it to disappear. The most disappointing thing is that my nice, white towels are permanently stained by this soap. I love you Method, but this stuff is horrible.

Refill Comments

Just purchased 3 French Lavender and 3 Sea Mineral on-line. Also wanted to purchase the Green Tea scent which is my favorite but it was not available which I wasn’t happy about. I hope this scent is not being discontinued! I would like to see Method take out the sodium lauryl sulfate in this product. I was able to get these refills for 25% off plus free shipping. I’m super thrifty and make my hand soap stretch by making my own foam soap by using a empty bottle of Method Foam Hand Wash and filling it with 1/3 Method gel soap and 2/3 water.

Refills? Yes Please!

When deciding on a refill for our hand wash (previously had the Sea Minerals, which I also loooooove), my sister suggested Pink Grapefruit. We love that now too.

These refills are excellent because you save money and the planet. It’s like buying a whole bunch of hand wash bottles all at once! I’ve actually lost track of how many times I’ve refilled our little pump. Next up will be Sweet Water! (even though the Christmas scents are catching my eye. Too bad they don’t make a little refill pouch for those!)

love the refill

We usually buy sweet water, but I also love the lavender. I was the first method product I bought when I moved into my first solo apartment, and has remained a staple in my house as a married “grownup”. Thanks for making safe, effective, environmentally friendly products. Also, what I would REALLY love is the opportunity to buy refill bags of the holiday scents. pretty please?

This is where I started

It all started for me when I visited my Aunt in Florida the soap in her bathroom was amazing. The scent was just like the ocean. I had no idea about the healthy, eco friendly side of method. Talk about a bonus!

I love that I have bought the dispenser once and then painless refill it for years. Way cool!

I absolutely love your soaps

I absolutely love your soaps refills, and I agree that all your scent should be available. Especially at target because thats where I buy them. The only reason why you don’t get 5 stars and is because sodium lauryl sulfates are used and I would much rather it not being present in your formula.

I like the pink grapefruit

I like the pink grapefruit flavor because it’s not overwhelming but smells bright.

love the refill

Years ago Method was the only greener liquid soap that could be bought in refill form, not sure if this is still the case. We have bought all kinds of these in various fragrances as well as the go naked (fragrance free). It all depends on what is in stock on the shelf of the local hardware store or We love the go naked, sea minerals, pink grapefruit and lavender. Those are the ones I remember off the top of my head, I know we have bought some of the holiday scents in the past as well. Please never stop making your refills.

green tea and aloe

bought this because i typically love products with either or both of these ingredients. Unfortunately, this smells like glass cleaner. it’s really aweful!!
