A method to my Cleaning Madness

Props, as they say, to the inimitable miss Dyanna.

She made a hilarious post of an IM conversation started by method laundry detergent.

Curious about what the hell she was talking about, I clinked ye olde link to method and found their products interesting. Cleaning products made without the pointless, supergerm-creating antibacterials found in nearly everything else on the market? Astounding! And they're available at my local Target and Costco.

I've frankly never been a fan of Lysol, but it's what I've been using to clean the bathroom for ages. Maybe it's just me, but cleaning products labeled with "MISUSE OF THIS PRODUCT IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE" don't make me all warm and fuzzy inside. Plus Lysol Tub and Tile smells like ass. Not literally like ass, mind you, just not good. To the point I had to turn on the exhaust fan every time I cleaned the tub, and leave it on after I was done.

So I went to Target and grabbed myself a bottle of method tub and tile and then I came home and cleaned the tub.

Damned if it doesn't work better than the Lysol. Lysol never managed to get the caulk between the tub and the shower surround back to white; method managed it on the first wipe.

My hands still feel like flesh, too, as opposed to the abused pieces of soggy beef jerky Lysol tended to turn them into. (Plus they'd smell like Lysol no matter how many times I washed them, which is really awful.)

Verdict: method makes good products at a price comparable to crappy products.
