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?
Great stuff!

Best I have ever used

I love Method products in general, but the Wood for Good really stands out. My furniture is old and banged up from moving and general wear and tear, and the Method wood cleaner makes it clean, shiny but not oily, and good-smelling. It makes even our old stuff look amazing. :-)

I use this on all types of wood – solid, laminate, etc – with great results on all. And I love anything almond scented. I personally don’t notice a lingering smell long after I finish cleaning, but my nose may not be that sensitive to it. I will continue to purchase this.

don't waste your $

Not sure what kind of finish is on my coffee table, but left white marks on the test area. Would NOT recommend for older wood products

Not as great as I had hoped.

It smells so much better than the citrus scented oils and aerosols. AGAIN with the baby powder after-scent, though. I hate that. It is non-toxic, that’s great. That’s why it gets 3 stars. I tested it on all of my wood furniture, it ruined two test spots. One on an antique dresser, the other on my antique piano bench. Please test this on an inconspicuous area (it even says to do so on the bottle) before using it all over antique furniture. I wish it delivered more polish – I’m the kind that needs a heavier shine/polish on my wood furniture. All in all, this wasn’t the product for me. I will stick to what I buy normally. I’m glad I tried it, though.

Great product!

Outstanding product! Absolutely perfect for wood. Has no silicone or fake shine enhancers so it REALLY does bring out the natural beauty of the wood. Smells delightfully like almonds. I have a residential housecleaning business and this is what we use on the wood in our clients homes and everyone is okay with it. :)

Ghastly smell

I had two guests in our office when the cleaners arrived. They use all of the products we provide them and we generally use only Method brand items.

They sprayed the WOOD FOR GOOD polish on something and my guests jumped up faster than I did – we all evacuated the office and had all of the windows opened immediately. We closed the office and went for lunch – I let the others go on a break for 1 hr.

I had sore throat and also a headache for about 1 hr.

Within an hour the smell was pretty much gone and all was well again. We destroyed the cleaner and will certainly never use it again – what a surprise!!

Run from this product – horrible!

Thank God for the Non-toxic cleaner

I dedicated a post tonight based on my experience with this cleaner. I’m incredibly thankful that it was non-toxic, as are my children. I will forever buy Method cleaners and I’m going to replace the other brands that I have tomorrow.

Refreshed my tables

I used this the other day on my dark wood end tables and coffee table. They look SO refreshed with no build-up or film. The odd thing is the smell… it smelled yummy like almond at first but then it dried into a horrible baby powder scent! EWW!

This is great. It not only leaves all my wood furniture looking great but it even helps me get all the mess from my toddler off the wood surfaces at the same time. Time saving at it’s best!

Have been using the good for wood small bottle for awhile….just discovered my first bottle of daily clean…………………wow! It is by far the best dusting polish I ever used. I have put the products in all my customers homes.

Best thing I ever used on my wood! It cleans so well. It’s cleaned better than Pledge or any other wood product out there.

thumbs way up

not only does this cleaner smells yummy it makes our wood GLEAM. we feel safe putting on newly bought wood items to uses it to bring back the luster of antiques furntiure. Wish method either made the bottle a bigger size or make a refill bottle. either way this will always be in my house.

Surprisingly Wonderful Scent

When I saw Almond as the fragrance I didn’t think for a second that it might actually smell good. But Method had surprised me before so I gave it a try anyways.

It’s a wonderful subtile smell, not too earthy, it doesn’t scream oily or even almond for that matter. It’s very chill.

Oh and it cleans and shins wood superbly at that.

An amazing, delicate almond smell. Gives even old wood furniture a facelift! Finally a wood cleaner you actually feel safe to use on a wood table you eat at.

Good Product

This product works very well. Cleans and conditions easily and without a harth scent.

I have used those aerosol sprays for wood, the oils… all of which had a strong chemical scent and were not so gentle to the environment. I absolutely love the almond scent of this wood cleaner. The spray bottle instead of aerosol propellant, and the fact that it is non-toxic were instant selling points to me. I’ll never use anything else again.

I Love This Stuf!!!

This is the best wood surface cleaner I have ever used—it works well and never makes me feel sick after I use it. I’m confident that it isn’t harmful to my family or my pets and the almond scent is wonderful too.

Leaves wood shiny and smelling wonderful

I like all of the method products I have tried so far, but this is definitely one of my favorites. It really leaves an even better shine than Pledge, and the almond smell is so nice. I found a companion brown microfiber cloth made by Method at my grocery store, and using the two together leaves an amazing shine and saves the environment by reducing garbage from paper towels or disposable wipes. It makes me so happy about cleaning my house!

Love it!

Not greasy or waxy — does not leave residue. Smells fantastic — not over powering. I use it on antiques, modern furniture, even my kitchen cabinets.

Great clean, no buildup

Not to mention the great smell (just like every other Method product). I love knowing that my most special wood furniture won’t suffer damage/build up like other wood cleaners leave. I hate dusting but this makes the tedious task a more enjoyable one. Amazing price too!

Revitalized some old wood furniture

Method Wood for Good is truly good for wood. Brought out the brilliance of some older wood furniture. Will definitely continue using.

I’m on my second bottle of this stuff. My mom and I love the smell and it’s not overwhelming like some lemon furniture sprays are. It smells nice, and cleans my coffee table great. It gets all the stains, dirt, fingerprints off and leaves it looking great.

Non-toxic, mild almond scent

I love this cleaner because it leaves the woodwork looking great without a heavy buildup and it cleans and polished all in one! I only wish there was more of it in a bottle!
