My bottle arrived this morning.

I'm impressed with how compact it is. A i right that there are up to 25 washes in that tiny bottle? I love the idea of the squirty pump.

Will be giving it its first test later this evening.

Marking my place too. First load just in the dryer so will report back!

Mine arrived today but not used it yet. Just wanted it noted that i really hope there is a refill pouch for it. It is a very sturdy bottle and it would completely defeat the purpose of being so concentrated if you threw it in the bin/ recycling everytime. Would stop be actually buying it if there was no refill option.

Marking my place, not received product yet though!

First wash is on, first impressions is that I like the dinky size bottle for 25 washes (about my weekly load) particularly because space is at a premium in our kitchen. I find the smell neat quite strong and chemically so will be interested to see how the clothes smell when they come out but will report back later.

First wash is on. It is just drying (Got a washer dryer) then I will be back later smile .

Got mine and second load on.
Schoolyard french came in handy to read instructions on the bottle.

Also marking place, did have a red card on my mat this morning (postman didn't knock I am positive as baby monitor was still on and dd's door open but I digress) so that could have been it but am expecting something else. Will find out Monday.

Just putting my wash on now. Was a nice surprise to find a package waiting when I got home from work. Smells nice. Hopefully will wash well too. Will report back soon.

First impressions good. Washed a load with it today. Clothes came out smelling fresh, and felt softer than usual. Clothes in dryer now, will add more tomorrow.

RachelHRD Fri 30-Nov-12 17:57:50

InkleWinkle Fri 30-Nov-12 17:59:06

Arrived this afternoon, just marking my place.

foxy6 Fri 30-Nov-12 17:59:13

got mine today done 1 load and am on the second one. english instructions on the bottle would be useful though, but i managed to figure it out, it's not that complicated

PoppyAmex Fri 30-Nov-12 18:00:14

Mine arrived this morning too. Just marking place, curious to see if it's a match for weaning poo grin

choccyp1g Fri 30-Nov-12 18:01:07

Lucky I can read a bit of French, because there are no English instructions on mine! But will give it a go, and will also try it with 2 squeezes, given that all the other washing products work just fine with half the amount.

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump?
I received mine yesterday so have done 3 loads already! Loved it, I use Method cleaning products as they are kind to my skin especially at this time of the year so have eyed this up a few times in the supermarket. The packaging is great a funky bottle and is ergonomic to use. I worked out the instructions despite being in French! It's not overly fragranced and looked like hardly anything in the soap compartment. The washing came out nice and clean even the whites (school shirts!) the soap drawer was spotless no nasty residue. Would easily compare with other brands I've used.
Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
Be nice in a bigger bottle, and possibly a bit cheaper as the price did put me off slightly as other brands seem to be on offer more regularly.
Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
Fragrance just right. If I need a longer lasting smell i'll use fabric softener. The cleaning power was spot on and worked well on the school shirts!
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 definitely, as its so simple to use great for the environment, cleans really well and is kind to my skin (no reactions so far). Cost as I said would be mentioned but really liked the product thanks for letting me test it! Will buy again.

Arrived today, and I will be tesrung it on school uniform tomorrow.

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump? Loved how small the pump was, and it made it easier for my 3 year old to help with putting the liquid into the machine. He usually tries to help with the big ol' bottle and dumps half of it in. Love that half the liquid isn't wasted in the measuring cap. The design is a revelation.

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
As with most things in the Method range, they can be a bit pricey. This would be what would keep me from buying it as compared to the store ECO brand I normally buy.

Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power? Fragrance was really nice and not too strong once the clothes were dry. Very pleasant. Cleaned fine, even my sometimes smelly dishcloths. Not sure about stain-power as we had nothing overly dirty.

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 use method cleaning products exclusively in my home...however the price would have to come down in order to think that this was worth replacing my normal eco brand and therefore probably not, due to the cost. With the rest of your line, for me there is no equivalent that cleans as well, smells as good, and is plant based. But with laundry liquid there are products that can equal Method and are more competitively priced. That being said, thanks so much for letting me be a part of the test. I do indeed love Method products!
