I am elbow deep in spring cleaning so I thought I would try a few new things. Proviso: I am not getting any special perks from any company. This is just one mama's honest opinion about a product I've just tried.
So I tried these cleaners under the brand of Method. They are environmentally sound and tout their "greenness" so I decided to get these three. There are a few others in the line, but I only got these. Here's what I think.
This is the glass and surface cleaner. I loved this product. It has a lovely smell of mint and did a fine job on the mirrors. The scent is very pleasant and refreshing. I would definitely buy this again.
This is the all-purpose cleaner. It has the scent of French lavender. If you like lavender, this is very nice. Again, it cleaned well and I liked it.
This is the anti-bacterial kitchen cleaner. I used it on my counters and it did clean nicely. However, the so-called lemon verbena scent was appalling. It smells like lemon mixed with tea tree oil (maybe?) and mothballs(?). My daughter described it as "bad breath." I used it once and I really don't think I would ever use it again because I live my life through smell and this just did not appeal to me. It did clean and I am sure it would knock out any germs. I just can't have my space smelling like that. Smell is subjective so if you like it, God bless you. It just isn't for me.
I also found a new (to me) organizer. Having my own backyard flock, I need lots of egg cartons and they can get quite messy and gross. I found these bad boys at Target and I think I will love them. They can be washed and reused. I will probably get a few more, plus they look so nice. Another problem I have with regular cardboard egg cartons is that sometimes my chickens lay huge eggs and they don't quite fit. This organizer can hold any size egg. I'm sold!
I hope you are doing well. Have you started spring cleaning? We are on day two and I'm miserable...oh well! And we have a blizzard going on outside. Enjoy your day! Blessings!
