After sitting in something unidentifiably wet the other day, wearing the one pair of jeans that actually fit me at the moment, I decided it was time to do the laundry.
Since becoming a Mom for the third time just two short months ago the laundry has taken, shall we say, more of a backseat than usual. I’ve been known as of late to only throw in a load when the kids have run out of underwear or hubby can no longer find clean white socks. As for me, well, these days I tend to end up wearing the same clothes for two or more days in a row. (Hey, don’t judge, I figure I’m going greener and conserving water this way right)?
Before I go any further let me share with you….
all opinions are 100% my own.
After posting something to the above affect as my facebook status the other day I decided it was time to tackle the mounting piles once and for all. I need to develop a system. I’ve tried the one load a day thing. It just doesn’t work for me. I detest laundry.
Enter Method. What perfect timing and what better a company to work with! I already LOVE Method’s products so why wouldn’t I love their laundry detergent? I have to tell you it was very hard to pick a scent because they all smelled so good. I ended up with a bottle of their Fresh Air scent (love by the way) and was ready to go. That said, if I get back to Target next week I’m getting more! At this price and this efficiency everyone could have their own favorite scented laundry. I think I might be onto something. That’s the way to make laundry fun. There’s even a free & clear version which I’m a fan of seeing as we have a baby in the house.
Back at home the first thing I did was clear off the laundry shelf to make room for my new friend.
I have to tell you that I was pleasantly surprised by how neat and clean it looked with just that one sleek bottle of Method sitting there as opposed to the big bulky drippy bottle that was it’s predecessor. No matter what I did I always ended up with blue drips all over the place. I also replaced the big box of dryer sheets with a little bottle of Method’s dryer-activated fabric softener spray. (more on that later) Method is already winning points and I haven’t even gotten a wash in yet.
Eventually I quit procrastinating by taking pictures of this cute little bottle and threw in the first load. I was pleasantly surprised a bit later when I happened to walk by the laundry room and smelled this heavenly smell. Our laundry room is on the first floor so after a whole day of doing laundry our house smelled super fresh. Hubby came home from work and save the toys strewn about the living room and the pile of dishes on the kitchen counter he thought the cleaning lady had been there. Maybe I should revisit this one load of laundry a day schedule.
In all seriousness though I love that this little bottle of Method not only cleans great and smells divine but that it’s environmentally friendly too. In a growing effort to make our household just a little bit greener that makes me feel good about using it. I also love that it makes it easier for my 8 year old to help with his own laundry. It literally took him two seconds to figure out how many pumps to use without me saying a word.
Speaking of going greener. Did you know Method has an alternative to dryer sheets? And, by the way, did you know most dryer sheets soften clothes with animal fat? I was so excited to find Method’s Dryer-Activated Fabric Softener spray. I’ve been wanting to ditch the dryer sheets for years but (until now) have yet to be able to find an acceptable replacement. It really does work. Our clothes are just as soft, smell ridiculously fresh and there’s nothing to throw away after you take the clothes out of the dryer.
Method is in business to change business. Their challenge is to make sure that every product they send out into the world is a little agent of environmental change, using safe and sustainable materials, manufactured responsibly. And that also means no animal testing.
When it comes down to it, Method is here to make products that work, for you and for the planet. Ones that are as easy on the eyes as they are on the nose. It’s a tall order, but they wouldn’t want to do anything else.
Did you know the average household does about 600 loads of laundry a year? Yikes that’s a lot of suds. I think I’ll tackle mine one day a week thank you.
Don’t forget to enter Method’s sweepstakes. Who would not want a year’s supply of laundry products?
