Method Clementine Dish Wash Liquid
Advantages: Smells beautiful and cleans effectively.
Disadvantages: None at all.
I use Method products in my home almost exclusively for cleaning as they are remarkably good and are natural and free from harsh chemicals. That isn't to say that I don't use heavy duty bleach based cleaners and so on for jobs that demand it, but on the whole these products are excellent for keeping on top of household chores.
The product that I value highly is the Clementine dish washing liquid which I have been using for many months now. It is available from many supermarkets as well as from Amazon and from Method themselves at www.methodproducts.co.uk. Appearances in certain supermarkets such as the Co-op seem to be sporadic and unpredictable. I spotted some on a recent trip to Britain's most remote Co-op in The Outer Hebrides, but on my subsequent visit it had vanished, but it certainly is stocked in all the major stores including B&Q and Homebase. It is also available from online retailers operating in the ethical field such as Ethical Superstore and Big Green Smile.
The beauty of this product is that the bottle itself is a pump dispenser which holds a generous 532 ml and that refills are available in 1032ml size plastic tetra-packs which represent excellent value for money.
The bottle itself is an excellent design and looks very sleek indeed, and the pump dispenser allows the product to be either squirted directly onto a sponge or cleaning cloth, or onto a bowl of hot water, or even onto dirty dishes directly. It produces masses of lovely bubbles and the scent is absolutely beautiful as it is fresh and has a citrus aroma. The cleaning capabilities of this dish washing liquid are excellent. Compared to Ecover which is another brand leader in this ecologically friendly area this surpasses this hands down in my opinion. Although I have a dishwasher I have certain items that I prefer to hand wash such as my Circulon pans and so on which I am hoping to keep for a long time, and sometimes these present quite a challenge. In every case to date the washing liquid has surpassed all my expectations cutting through dried on food effortlessly leaving the dishes clean and with a lingering orange oil scent.
It took me a long time to accept that there really was an eco-friendly product that was as good as Fairy which was my dish washing liquid of choice for many years. Having tried several others in the environmentally friendly category I had never been sufficiently convinced that they had the right amount of cleaning power to make the job less than a massive chore- until I found Method!
The product is also remarkably kind to hands as well, and I have never found my skin to be made dry by using this so again this is another attribute. This maybe due to the coconut oil content and the inclusion of vitamin E and aloe vera which all impart moisture and softness. This of course is not a problem if you use Fairy but some other liquids can be very harsh when used with regularity.
Furthermore it is also lovely to use to wipe down kitchen worktops on a daily basis, and just recently Method have launched a sister product in this Clementine fragrance which is a surface cleaning spray to complement their existing multi-purpose sprays in the Pink Grapefruit and Lavender ranges. This is excellent too and ideal to use on kitchen worktops and in bathrooms.
It is also useful to know that a little of the product goes a long way so it is economical. Although I am always looking to purchase ethical and environmentally friendly products, I won't do so at the expense of performance and this product excels in all aspects of use from cleaning capabilities to dispenser design, and also has skin preservation and protection qualities.
The entire bottle is recyclable as well, but of course if you buy the tetra-packs you won't be doing this on a regular basis. I tend to purchase refills in bulk from Amazon as I always have a supply ready. I do this by taking out a subscription which is a highly effective way to ensure you never run out, and can benefit from the discounts associated with this scheme. I highly recommend this if you haven't looked at it already. I have many groceries on subscription with Amazon on either a monthly or longer interval delivery schedule, and it is easy to amend, postpone or cancel them at any time. The refills work out at £8.09 on subscription for 2 tetra-packs of 1064mls which equates to a bottle refill for just over £2. Of course they offer free delivery as well for their grocery orders.
Method also make this washing up liquid in a Cucumber fragrance which is equally effective at removing grease and dried on food, but overall I prefer the Clementine scent a little over this one.
I highly recommend this product. The packaging is sleek, the scent beautiful, the results are outstanding and it leaves hands soft and pleasantly fragranced. It is also great for the environment and excellent for recycling qualities. Added to this it is economical and is a joy to use. I sometimes even wash up by hand instead of using the dishwasher just for the pleasure of using it so it really is that good!
