what's that smell?
Enjoyable scent, but...
While I love the out-of-the-box scents, I was very disappointed with the cleaning power of this detergent. I run a laundry detergent review blog, so I intentionally stained one of my white work shirts with chili and let it sit for a while.
I pre-treated the stain with the detergent, let it sit for a good 15 minutes then put my shirt through the wash with a small load of laundry. I followed the recommended amount directions and did two pumps. By the time my wash was over, there was still a very large, visible chili stain on the front of my shirt. It looked as if I had just run it through hot water, little more.
In the end, I will only use this detergent on lightly-soiled clothing, or if I want a unique scent on my clothes.
The Method laundry detergent bottle is husband proof, as I no longer have to remind him what line the cap needs filled to for what size of load or clean up his messes :) No more wasted detergent left in the cap or spillage from the other foolish (as I now call them) bottle designs! My clothes smell AMAZING afterwards…even after sometimes forgetting them in the washer overnight :/ I’m so happy refill pouches are now offered!!!
I’m serious about my laundry. I don’t mess around. I need my stuff clean and I don’t like using scents, which is why I love the free + clear (please method, don’t discontinue it). It works great, the pump is solid… what else can I say? If you’re still using laundry detergent that smells like a DuPont factory and poisons the water table, you need to shake yourself and buy a bottle of this stuff!
Clean, Fresh, & "Green"
I have been looking for this particular fragrance for awhile! I was afraid the bottle lasted so long, Method stopped making it… So happy to find it online!
Love the travel size!
I don’t own a car and walk/bike exclusively. This tends to create problems when trying to get something home like a giant jug of laundry detergent. Well on my last trip to the store, I saw this handy little backpack-sized detergent and I’m hooked! It cleans better than my old detergent, and the packaging (and refills) are much easier to get home!
WHYYYYY I can never find the Peony Blossom anymore? It was FANTASTIC! Why would you get rid of it?! Spring daisys is okay, but it’s not the peony blossom, I use everything Method but this has me seriously debating checking out other all natural detergents to see if I like them better simply because of smell and I am not the only one, as I saw below!
I like it but...
I really liked trying this detergent, and liked the way it cleaned. My main gripe is the fact that it says 50 loads. I kept track on it to see how true this was, and I only got 35 loads out of it! I stayed withing the directions and didn’t use more squirts unless I didn’t get an entire squirt. I really don’t think I wasted enough to short me by 15 loads of laundry! If they come up with a different pump to get everything from the bottom or be sure that we get our 50 loads out of it, I will consider using it again.
please bring it back
I love the convenience of this detergent! It does a great job cleaning, and I don’t have to carry those huge jugs around anymore. My only gripe? PLEASE BRING BACK THE PEONY SCENT!! i can’t find it anywhere and miss it so much! Please, please, please!!
method laundry detergent
method laundry detergent is good stuff but the one thing I don’t get is why is it $16.00 for (20 fl oz)
The reason why I say this is because you can go to Walmart and get Tide (150 fl oz) for $18.00.
SWITCHED FROM TIDE !!!
I am such a loyal brand shopper. I have always used Tide. I read an article about Method, got a sample in LOwe’s and thought, uhm, let’s try it. So with a load of regular clothes I washed with Method laundry liquid… I WAS HOOKED!! I love the fact that I can do all my laundry with 4 -6 pumps per load. I get 50+ loads from one bottle (depending on the month and how dirty my boys get!!). The price is higher than you would think for this little bottle, but when you actual see how many loads you get from the large size Tide versus the 50 load bottle of Method, the savings is there. I find myself shopping for laundry soap a lot less than I used to and since I have my husband trained on 5 pumps, he gives it no more and I can save even more! I have never had any problems with the pump going bad or needing a longer pump line. As a matter of fact, when I get so low, I add a little water to the bottle and use what is left in there. LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!!!
Love this product but with the price was a little lower
I really do like this product, but I find the price point to be a little bit high. Whenever I am at Target and am ready to buy some more laundry soap, I always feel like this product is priced too high. There are some other earth friendly lines that are less expensive, so I tend to buy those instead.
This has a pleasant light, fresh, floral scent. If you like peony(my favorite), you will probably like this fragrance.
Love my laundry
Great stuff and a nice light & clean scent. Works well but it’s priced a bit on the high side compared with Clorox Green Works.
Love love love spring daisy
This scent is so fresh. I don’t like perfumy scents for my laundry and this one is perfect. It really smells like you dried your laundry in a meadow- very natural and soft. I want it to stay FOREVER. Plus I want dryer cloths and fabric softener and REFILL on this scent, PLEASE METHOD!!!
SPRING DAISY RULEZ
I LOVE SPRING DAISY – PLEASE MAKE IT PERMANENT AND AVAILABLE ON THE WEBSITE!!!
I picked this up at Target in the Spring Daisy scent (50 load bottle- yellow). I can’t find it on the method website… Anyway, it works well and takes up so little space. No more messing with laundry detergent powders that don’t fully dissolve or sticky liquids that drip everywhere. I’m not missing cruel Tide at all!!
The Fresh Air scent and
The Fresh Air scent and packaging sold us the first time around. We have a city apartment and lugging all the laundry plus detergent, etc. 29 floors down is a pain so the compact size (and concentrated product) help. (And let’s face it, in a big city, carrying a small bottle of detergent home from Target on the bus is a lot easier than some gigantic plastic behemoth bottle.) Needless to say, we keep buying this because family members don’t mind the scent, it doesn’t irritate our skin and seems to clean our laundry despite the crappy water we have. The downside is it’s a little pricier and we have to search for it a bit.
Love, love, love and need Method for my daily use!
It was recommended for me to try the laundry detergent. I did. So impressed with the fact that I do not need anything extra and the stains, dirt and ickies come out just by the normal wash. No pre-treating, no extra care for area with issue, just wash.
*Bonus is children with eczema do have any issue that they did with others, even the pricey baby detergent! NO matter what scent I use, they (2 of 4) are just fine.
The 3 different fragrances I have tried are gentle and pleasant.
I do not have to lug a big container from the store or every time I was to wash a load. Simple, easy and clean!
All of their products work so well. I no longer feel sick or headache half-way through cleaning from the toxic products I once used to clean the home. I scrub less, get more clean and feel just fine.
Laundry products – Rain, Lavender – fresh and gentle scent
bathroom cleaning – all! Cleans fast, with ease and without the toxic headache I usually get while using cleaning products.
Kitchen cleaning – fav grapefruit and Lavender- depending on my mood
Dishwasher tablets – fav is grapefruit – scent makes everything fresh!
Thank you Method!
Pump not good
Love the product, love the fact that it’s refillable, but the pump broke after 5 uses. So sad…
Make all your detergent bottles refillable please!
i love the scent of the detergent Sweet Pea, the quality of the actually detergent and its cleaning power is okay. But please make ALL of your detergent bottles refillable! And please start making refills for Sea Pea and Poeny Blossom refills and sell them on Well.ca !!!
Sad about this one...not good with odor
This is the first method product I haven’t liked and will have to switch out when it’s gone. :(
I sweat a lot, especially in the summer, and my clothes, especially blend fabrics, come out of the laundry smelling like they never went in. I’ve tried putting half the amount of clothes so that there’s plenty of water (a bit of a hardship for me since I pay for every load), different water temperatures, and pretreating. Pretreating seems to be the only method that helps a little, but for the cost of this detergent, I don’t want the aggravation of having to pretreat every shirt when I can get some Seventh Gen detergent for less and not have to go through that step.
Sorry method guys. I’ll keep using all the rest of my products, but this one is fail.
I like the way it cleans, I like the green aspect a lot.
BUT, once the bottle is half empty (half full?) when you tilt the bottle to squirt it into the tray of the front loader machine, nothing comes out. Which just seems like a HUGE design flaw for an HE detergent. So for half the loads I can use the pump, but then I end up having to pour it directly into the dispensing tray, and there’s no spout of course so it drips.
The refill bag is genius though, love the hard “straw” to grip to make it easier to pour.
This is a fantastic detergent! I agree about the bottle but it was suggested to my mother that an HE machine needs a very limited amount of soap so she uses (passed one on to me) one of the liquid baby Tylenol measure cups. This has come in very handy when the soap is low.
I use the Fresh Air laundry detergent in conjunction with the Sweet Water dryer sheets, and it’s great! I love it :) Smells nice and gets my clothes clean (I work in an animal hospital so I get some interesting stains/smells on my scrubs). I will definitely keep using this product!
Reading love it, dont love the limited avabilty of scents
I love this detergent, I just wish I could find more of differnt scents in retail stores. I’m not wasting money on shipping ect though. Its not worth it. All I can find are the peony blossom, free + clear and fresh air. But the product is awesome and here’s hoping more retailers will carry more versions.
I would love to see some of the fruity scents, such as Clementine, extended into your laundry line.
I don’t like anything perfume-y or floral, so I currently use the unscented laundry pump. I occasionally use a squirt or two of my Clementine dish soap in my towel and linen loads :-)
I know a lot of men don’t like the smell of most laundry soap, as it’s generally feminine, I bet Clementine/Fresh Apple/Etc would be a hit with them too!
Longer Pump line?
I too have been using Method Laundry Detergent since it came out – specifically the Free and Clear. I have allergies to other Laundry Detergents and discovered through lots of trial and error that Method is the one that does NOT cause me to break out into hives and/or rashes.
My biggest concern when Method came out with the new Pump container is that I have a top load washer (and stackable at that). Due to the small space, I have to tilt the bottle to get the detergent aimed into the washer. As the detergent lessens, the pump does not have the ability to get the detergent. So at about 1/4 left, I have to unscrew the top and approximate the detergent for the remainder of the bottle.
The other container with the cap was so much more easier to use. I understand Method trying to be less wasteful but is there a happy medium? Could they offer two containers – one for those who have the side door washers and one for those who have the top loader/stackable?’
In any case, thank you for all that you do for the environment and for those of us with allergies! Thank you!
Smells so lovely!
I use both Peony Blossom (for my & hubby’s clothes) and Free + Clear (for baby.) I love the smell of Peony so much! It cleanses our clothes so well and I love the pump action! I hope you guys come out with Peony Blossom fabric softener & dryer sheets. Seeing as it doesn’t affect baby’s skin I think my next purchase will be Sweet Pea because it smells soft like a baby should!! :)
Llove this detergent. Like all the others say. It cleans great. Love the pump and love that if you read the bottom of the bottle it tells you to line up the arrow to the pink straw so you can use every drop without taking the lid off. The only thing I would love to see is a window strip down the bottle so I can keep track of when I’m almost out, so I can buy another great bottle of detergent.
This is the best detergent I’ve used, mostly for the things I DON’T notice. Like itchy skin, sneezy laundry day and fading colors. I like the pump design, but can understand why some would find it wasteful. I don’t have an issue with it because we have recycling. I would love to see refill bags though, just because I know that would probably reduce the cost greatly!
I’ve been using Method laundry detergent for years; I can’t say enough good things about it. It works fabulously and flawlessly. I’ve always been conscious of the environment, but what really hooked me on this detergent was the small size and design of the original bottle (you’d squeeze the bottle and the detergent would self-measure into a little cup attached to the top of the bottle.) Thank you for once again moving to a bottle that can be operated with one hand, plus it’s even smaller and more lightweight. Now, if you could only bring back the Morning Bloom scent I would be the happiest Method customer on the planet (until then I‘ll mournfully use the fresh air scent).
no smell yeah!
this is the first product i used. i love that there as no scent and weird stuff in it my family has skin allergies. we also don’t like going around smelling like laundry. the small bottle also great so you don’t have to keep lifting a huge jug. refils would be lovely!!
Love it, but is it discontinued?
I like how concentrated this detergent is, which means a nice small bottle for many loads of laundry. And it works great too, cleaning effectively without adding an artificial scent.
But amazon just told me that it has been discontinued and cancelled my subscription to it. Is this true? Or is it still available elsewhere?
Easy Peasy, fresh, no muss no fuss, this detergent WORKS, takes up little space in the laundry room, and can be used on everything from the grime duds to the delicate undies. I love it!
dosing without the pump
This stuff is awsome!
FYI to those having trouble with broken pumps:
The proper dose (4 pumps) is pretty much exactly one measured table spoon (the kind used for baking, not just your regular spoon!), or 15ml if you prefer.
The detergent is great
The container, well, not so much. It’s nifty looking but not functional. I have a front loader with a little drawer that you need to pull out to fill with detergent, bleach, etc. Once the bottle of detergent starts to get low and you need to tilt it, you start having problems.
Some sort of soft refill bag would also be much more practical than having to buy a new container every time, as well.
Other than that, I love the soap. I understand the concept of pre-measured pumps, I just wish you had stuck to the original packaging. For now, I just spend a lot of time unscrewing tops and condensing small quantities of almost-empty bottles. Not a pleasant (or easy) task.
I never bought baby detergent for my baby (just used free+clear) – but I recently purchased the Method baby detergent (sweet pea). I love it! It does a great job on baby messes and smells so good! I want to use it on everything and find myself making excuses to wash his clothes (and toss in something of mine too).
Got out stains other detergents didn't
I’m a bee keeper and occasionally things get a bit messy. I was able to get out stains that other fully synthetic detergents were unable to get out. Love the scent and I had no allergic reaction, which is HUGE for me. Great product.
Product: yay! Pump: improvement needed
I was thrilled to find Method brand laundry detergent for my HE washer. I was even happier to find it in Free+Clear so I could use it on even my baby’s clothes!
The product works great. (Though I miss having any scent. My husband actually wondered if it was getting our clothes clean because there is NO scent at all.)
I like the shape of the bottle. It doesn’t tip over due to the wide base.
However, the pump doesn’t seem to hold the product between washings and it eventually just stopped working. There was still plenty of detergent left in the bottle, but nothing would coax it into the pump. I had to resort to unscrewing the top each time I used it. (Besides being inconvenient, it also made it difficult to accurately measure the amount of detergent I was using.)
I will buy it again, but I hope the pump will work for the duration of the product.
Love the product, not so much the packaging
I’ve been using Method’s Laundry Detergent for years now, I love it! Nothing cleans or smells better. I use a laundry service and one day when I was picking up my laundry, the store manager ran after me to ask where I get such a wonderful detergent! I’ve never been chased by someone…let alone chased for my laundry soap :)
Now the bad, I love the sleek new design, I even think the pump is a good idea…however, because I travel with my detergent and there’s no lock on the pump the trunk of my car now has laundry soap all in it. Things tip over, soap leaks out…not quite sure maybe the pump pressed down? In any case, I wasted a lot of detergent in the trunk! I am, though, enjoying the lovely smell when I open the trunk?
Still how about a cap? A lock? Something to keep the pump from pumping…something for us laundry toting folks?
Love it, too! But the pump...
… really should be refillable. And I can’t get ALL of the product out when the bottle is empty… I want to access every little drop!
Love It!! But...
Love this product. Smells fantastic and cleans well too. Only thing that bothers me is the pump doesn’t seem to retain the product well – so I have to pump a lot of times initially to get the detergent to come out.
Love the new bottle design, hate that it’s not refillable! Why by a new pump every time when you could sell this in a bagged refill, like you do for (some of) your other products? Or at least sell a non-pump version of the bottle, like Aveda does with their products, so you can transfer the pump and recycle the old bottle.
It cleans great, can be used in any washing machine, smells great, easy to use pumps = no soapy hands (which I hate when doing laundry!), space saving, planet friendly….need I go on?
I have severe arthritis in both hands and the design of the bottle is so wonderful! And it smells great and cleans as well as any other detergent I have tried!
greatest laundry detergent ever
This stuff is so good I even use it to pretreat stains. It even got out a set in blood stain on one of my husbands white dress shirts. I can’t say enough about how great this detergent is.
