Okay I know it’s a stretch putting household products under ‘Beauty’, but given how pure and free from chemicals Method products are, I don’t know that I am reaching that far.

When I lived in Manhattan, everyone I knew used Method products. You could buy them in every Walgreens and Duane Reade and, in a city that’s full of grime, I liked using products that were clean in themselves to clean. (They work by utilising naturally derived surfactants to dissolve and remove dirt.)

When I came back to London, I moved around the corner from a Whole Foods, and started working my way through all the natural and free from products on their shelves to clean my house.  (With the amount of gunk we inhale each day, why would we want to fill our homes with any more chemicals?) Unfortunately the cleaners weren’t such fans. They complained incessantly that they weren’t lifting the dirt or cleaning my clothes properly.

So when the PR for Method asked if I would like to trial pretty much the whole range for my new apartment, I said yes. Both from nostalgia and because, as far as I remembered, they worked, and I was fed up with metaphorical tugs of war over the noxious chemicals my cleaners favoured.

Maria the cleaner wasn’t so keen when I unpacked the box and she saw they were natural products, but now, after two months of using the products above (glass cleaner, bathroom cleaner, laundry detergent, surface cleaner, kitchen cleaner and hand soap) she’s come around to my way of thinking.

Well, put it this way, she hasn’t been turning up toting huge bottles of bleach as was her wont, so I am guessing she approves.

I stumbled across these products in my local North London Morrisons – I had no idea they were everywhere in the US – and have been pleasantly surprised. They really do work! The super-concentrated laundry detergent is particularly good, and takes up way less shelf/cupboard space than bulky boxes of power or tablets – perfect for the Londoner living in a small space.

I love Method laundry detergent – it works and smells divine. Where can you buy the whole range of cleaning products? I’ve only seen the laundry detergent at Waitrose…

I love the sound of these – I didn’t know you could get them in the UK. Thanks for the heads up!

I didn’t know these existing, thanks for the heads up – sounds like a great range of products. Nice, pure and not too nasty for the environment either. Lovely!

Tesco, or at least my local big store, carries a good range of Method products too 🙂

I read about these on fauxfuschia but only just found them in my local supermarket. So far, only have the kitchen and bathroom cleaner but I love them and they smell divine. I am a convert, thanks!

I am desperate for a cleaner and in the Camden area. Is Maria taking on any new clients? Would love a recommendation rather than someone random.
