Method Detergent

Does anyone use this detergent for diapers? all laundry?????
Tide ultra HE caused some stinkies for us. I'm still trying to work it out and find an amount that works but looking ahead I bought a bottle of this. I used it on a few loads of our clothing and I kinda like it..... It it really as environmentally friendly as say 7th gen? It states the optical brighteners biodegrade too!
I've done some searches on this forum but haven't come up with much info/reviews. What were your experiences with it?

Re: Method Detergent

I would have to see the ingredient list. I looked at some of their other products and they had sulfa in them, not environmentally friendly and I am allergic to it. I do love their scents though!

I could never get our regular laundry clean with Method. Gym clothes still smelled, towels were dingy and crunchy, etc. It's too bad bc the fresh air scent is my faaaaave. I just can't spend that much for stuff that doesn't work well. I use all of their other cleaning products though.

It isn't super highly rated on P&P either.

Let us know how it goes!

Re: Method Detergent

I bought some to use on vacation b/c they have a great easy to (plane) travel with bottle, and it seemed to work ok. I didn't use it on many loads, but what I did use, seemed to work just fine.

It works- I just had to use a little more than the suggested amount to get the 'clean' I was looking for. The sweet pea and lavender cedar smell so good!!! I did read somewhere it's not as environmentally friendly as it touts, but better than some, I suppose.
