I (heart) Method!

Honestly!  I am lovin’ the laundry products…especially with my pretty new washing machine!!!

I’ve always envied my mother-in-law’s laundry because it smells absolutely incredible.  We used the exact same products (until I made new eco-choices), but somehow I could never duplicate that fab aroma. I always wondered if it has something to do with the washing machine or the dryer and how it scrubbed and tumbled the laundry.  Maybe?

Anyhow, back to my point.  Did I mention I love Method laundry products?!?!  They are so eco-friendly and come from a really green company. The items I’ve been trying lately are the detergent and softener infused dryer cloths.  The detergent is phosphate-free, bio-degradable and HE (high efficiency) for my new washer…but don’t give me a hard time about the dryer cloths.  They can be used twice and are actually compostable!  And they contain mainly renewable plant oils.

They really meet my eco-criteria, but above that….damn, they smell GREAT!  Both are “water lily + aloe.”  And they smell soooo good, I just want to chew on my laundry like a teething baby with a wet wash cloth!!!  (Was that too much information?)  I don’t know what it is, but besides being a very visual person, I appreciate my sense of smell and just like great smelling laundry…but with a consciousness too!

If anyone else has tried any of their products, I’d love to know what you think.  If not, warning….you, too, may want to gnaw on your laundry!

23 Eco-Friendly Ways To Save Money While You Save The Planet

"Going green" has always been a part of my daily life. It began, as a little girl, when I helped my mom gather the recyclables and deliver them to a recycling center. It continues today, as a mom myself, when I teach my own children those same responsible virtues.

There are so many more facets of going green in the modern day, and the definition of the term reaches far beyond simple recycling. But going green isn't just about installing solar panels on your rooftop... it's about all the little choices that make the biggest difference. From food choices, to cleaning your home, to saving money on your monthly utility bills and consumption; the choices are vast.

However, there is a popular misconception that "going green" will "cost you green." We're inundated with green products, eco-friendly formulas, organics and mountains of options, making it seem that going green is an investment rather than an opportunity.

Well, I'm here to help dispel that myth and actually show you all of the ways you can live green, keep your family healthy, and benefit the environment without sacrificing anything, including your money.

When you make wise choices to gain the most benefit, relieve the burden on the environment, and save money to use elsewhere, everyone wins. You've already taken the first step. You've come here for help to make it happen.

Put these tips into action, and you will soon find that you can "save green" while you "go green"!

  1. Hi there! I’m a lover of the soapnuts and eco balls – I was a convert a couple of years back and they are amazing.

    Moreso because I haven’t had to buy a single box or bottle of anything since! For fragrance, I just add about 6 drops of my favourite essential oil and that’s it!

    For stuff with horrid stains, either pre-soak in borax or soda crystals and your half way to having clean laundry that hasn’t been stripped of it’s fibre so to speak.

    Great blog by the way,
    Enjoying the read,

  2. Yes, I use method products — dish soap, hand soap and laundry detergent. When my whites are dingy, I’ll add a cup of borax.

    I use (and love) the “Fresh Air” scent which comes in a blue bottle. It’s very light, but leaves everything feeling very nice. I don’t use dryer sheets at all…no problem with that.

  3. Tracey – Soapnuts and eco balls?!?!?! I swear, I haven’t heard of either! (the names alone are kinda crazy!!!) but now I have to check them out! Glad you’re enjoying too!…. 🙂

    Elaine – you know I really need to check out Borax too!

  4. Hi Doreen! They are taking the UK by storm, so you may have to seek them out on a .co.uk website, but I’d be surprised if they were only being retailed here.

    Soapnuts are about £12.00 per kilo sack and that should do approx 250 washes and eco balls are £25.00 for the 3 that come in a box and they do about 1,000 washes AND come with refill balls!

    All the best!

  6. Tracey – I am so curious now! I MUST find out more about them!!!

    OGM – They do have a lot! My friend even uses their stainless steel cleaner for all of their appliances.

  7. I am a mom of 7! I have used everything out there including method. 3 years ago I was turned onto the Melaleuca products….a company that is Green inside and out….the best products, the best value! All their products are
    2 – 6x concentrated! I don’t buy “packaged water” any longer!

  8. devorah – mom of 7?!?!? Well first of all, I bow to you! 🙂 And I have heard a lot about Melaleuca from a friend that swears by their products, but also some negatives from another friend — but for the life of me, I can’t remember now what those negatives were! Whatever the product, as long as they’re ‘green’…they’re okay by me!
