I have spoken many times about my unhealthy addiction to wipes. No, not the adult, use on your buns type I talked about last week (although I am totally addicted to those, what is it with me and the wipes?). I am talking about wipes of the cleaning variety. But I harbor a lot of guilt when I use them. It doesn’t really stop me from using them because unfortunately I am really, really good at pressing through the guilt. And really, really, really lazy when it comes to cleaning. Hence the wipes.
I have been a fan of Method for a long time. Honestly the reason why is I love the way their products look. I am a sucker for good design. But also because they are affordable and easy to find at the mothership, I mean Target. And because they actually clean. I hate it when you buy “earthy” cleaning products and they don’t clean. And sadly I have found that it happens a lot. Which is why I frequently fall back on bleach.
But Method’s new botanical antibacterial products kill germs without bleach or triclosan. In fact, Method has partnered with CleanWell Company to create a patented botanical formula that kills 99.99 percent of household bacteria including E.coli, salmonella enterica, influenza A and H1N1 virus on hard, non-porous surfaces. Just in time for flu season!! I am hoping it also works on bed bugs. Cause what is up with those things? Freaky. Thankfully they are not in Michigan, but is it just me or does everyone else’s bed suddenly make the itch?
The new line consists of antibacterial kitchen cleaning spray in lemon verbena, antibacterial bathroom cleaning spray in spearmint, all purpose cleaning and disinfecting wipes in lemon verbena. I have to be honest, I don’t completely dig the lemon verbena scent. Oddly enough I don’t mind the smell of bleach though so maybe it is me with the issue, not Method.
In short, the products ACTUALLY clean, ACTUALLY kill germs and I don’t have to stress about using them. Also, they are affordable, easy to find give me an excuse to go to Target. Seriously, I am in love. Love.
