Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump? Very well thought out concept very good at controlling amount of liquid used
Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
The only thing would be the price
Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
I liked the non overpowering fragrance and the cleaning power was as good as previous products i used so a i would give it a good rating
Q4 If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not? I would recommend it as it is just very hand to transport and has a good size for popping into a shopping bag

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump?
Expected it to be rubbish. However it seemed to be able to wash clothes!

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?

Seemed to little "stuff" to be believable.

Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?

No noticeable fragrance for me. Cleaned really well.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not?

Would recommend. Like the fact it is concentrated n' green.

maxybrown Wed 02-Jan-13 19:30:02

ooh thank you. Yes but the large refill is 85 washes!!

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump? 
It was okay, some items were not as clean as with my normal washing powder, and the washing smelt fresh and clean.

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
The pump was awkward to use when half empty and to try and aim it into the drawer.

 Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
The fragrance was mild which was lovely, it was a clean, fresh scent. I didn't find the cleaning power great on heavily stained
Q4 If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not?

I would recommend it for people with only lightly dirty clothes.

They sell them in large branches of Sainsbury's and Waitrose methinks!

DW is trying to psyche herself up to spend £12 on a refill pouch - it's a lot to spend in one go on laundry liquid

MrsDeVere Wed 02-Jan-13 16:59:32

I have seen them in Sainsburys maxy

maxybrown Wed 02-Jan-13 16:24:40

mummysmellsofsick - where did you purchase the big refill pack please? Only seen it online at JL but would like to buy that myself

gorionine Wed 02-Jan-13 07:37:29

Thanksvery much for the opportunity to take pat in the testing. I am sorry I had to delay my feedback and hope it is still ok to feedback now.
Q1 What was your overall impression of the Method Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump?
It looked nice and compact. I loved that it took so little space to store under my sink and it is a big plus for me. I have been wondering though whether there are some refill packs you can buy to avoid buying the pump every time.
The fact it was in French was not a problem for me but probably was for quite a few.
The "precaution d'emploi" was very big on the bottle (compared to other detergent containers I have come across) and made it a bit "scary".

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
Not really, it was indeed very economical and did the job. I love the idea of a laundry product that both does clean well (I adapted the dose to my 9kg washing machine) and respect the environment.

Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
I think cleaning power was equal to my usual brands (Persil, Ariel).
The fragrance was really light and disappeared totally in the tumble drier but not really an issue.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not?
If it did come up I would certainly mention the more environment friendly side of it.

mummysmellsofsick Tue 01-Jan-13 15:13:22

Thanks Method I used my voucher to help buy the big refill pack. One happy tester/ customer

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Method Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump?
I found the pump bottle very easy to use and store

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
Its a bit pricey

Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
Fragrance was nice, not as long lasting as what i'm used to though, cleaning power was good, didnt get bolognaise stains out of bibs though.

Q4 If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not?
I probably would recommend it as it is lasting a long time

My good was what a lot of carping! I'm still using the original bottle and getting to like it more and more so will probably use my lovely voucher to buy some more.

Happy tester here!

I bought the Bathroom Cleaner today, using the £1 voucher (which I thought was quite adequate for a 'problem' that wasn't too much of a problem in the first place).
It smells divine! And cleans wonderfully. Am a big fan of Method now grin

PenisColada Mon 31-Dec-12 10:49:56

I would rather have the washing up liquid as I have to spend money to use the voucher.

Also the pump is not easy to use as it gets empty.

butterfly42 Mon 31-Dec-12 10:47:28

What was your overall impression of the Method Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump - great size pump doesnt take up much room and very simple to use. Loved the pump idea less messy than a bottle.

Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid - apart from the price, it does compare with other branded washing liquids but I tend to buy whats on offer at the time

What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power - I always use fabric softener and didnt wash without it so cant comment on the fragrance. The cleaning power was as good as other products but no better, still had to treat stains separately.

If it came up in conversation, do you think you would recommend Method Laundry Liquid to a friend/relative or not? If so, what would you say about it? If not, why not? I would recommend it for anyone to try simply for the ease of use and less mess and certainly if someone wanted an eco product, but price wise its expensive and the cleaning is on par with other brands.

maxybrown Sun 30-Dec-12 14:22:52

wow, less is more eh? hmm

Well I buy other method products regularly and happy with my £1 voucher thank you - and we found the letter quite funny! However, I will be buying some more washing liquid now too as mine has all gone sob, and very pleased with it - my towels still smell good even after tumble drying and normally they don't.

For those of you saying your stores don't stock method - I never buy it from a supermarket as they don't sell it, but Homebase sell it, B&Q and surprisingly, John Lewis have the best range and are the cheapest

Sparklingbrook Sat 29-Dec-12 23:18:10

The £1 voucher is off Method in general I think Happy so you don't have to buy the washing stuff.

HappyNewSkyebluesapphire Sat 29-Dec-12 23:16:29

I had a £1 voucher today as well. Probably wont use it if the stuff costs £6 though

aristocat Sat 29-Dec-12 21:28:51

£1 voucher also arrived for me, must agree that its not much of a 'gift' hmm personally the French instructions were not a problem really and a simple email/letter (with English instructions) and an apology would have been enough.

Otherworld Sat 29-Dec-12 20:15:32

Just to add - after having used nearly the whole bottle I'm really liking it (and DP does too) so we're planning to switch once I get the Fairy non-bio mountain used up (we'd stocked up...)

I haven't had a voucher sad and don't know if my instructions were in French or English as I didn't read them!

I like Method, I love their Clementine washing up liquid and would happily buy their products because they feel and smell less chemically than the competition.
