Clean like a Mother

This post is sponsored by Method, but all opinions expressed are my own. (And P.S. There’s a coupon below!)

It’s sort of funny, but I well-remember the first time I saw Method products on the shelf. I was in a Target and the packaging caught my eye. I’m a sucker for simple, attractive packaging, and I think I have some sort of delusion that if I buy beautiful cleaning products, I’ll start to enjoy the process of cleaning.

For the most part, I got away with just owning said products, but having a baby (and now a puppy) has changed that. Alas, cleaning (or at least wiping) has become a routine part of the day.

Of course, when we first had Hudson, it meant even more new, attractive cleaning products I was secretly loathe to use (e.g. free-and-clear detergent so that I might actually, gulp, do laundry). But those Method products came in handy: they’re made from naturally derived, biodegradable ingredients that are non-toxic, so I feel better about using them around our little one. In fact, you can find a health + environmental summary for each of their ingredients on their site.

So, when Method asked me to join their “Clean like a Mother” campaign, I happily got on board. The euphemism actually fit. Screen Shot 2013-02-06 at 11.38.24 PM

When you purchase Method’s all-purpose cleaner through, use the coupon code APCBLOG at the checkout to receive $1.00 off your online order.

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.

Let’s Discuss

  1. Hi Ashley,
    I could have written this post (except for the puppy and the fact that I clean obsessively ). I also bought method because of the clean , attractive packaging . It helped that I was a new mom and worried about toxic material in our home.
    Sadly, I’m in Germany so method isn’t available here but I still reuse an old method hand wash container in my guest bath….everyone thinks it’s some posh , limited edition stuff.
    Sigh….I miss Target !!!

      That’s so funny, Eme! They were recently acquired by a larger company from, I believe, Belgium… so maybe they’ll come to Germany soon!
