Received mine today will be trying it tonight smile

Q1. Loved the design, nice and small.

Q2. I'd change the price!! having recently converted to aldi washing powder which is a third of the price, I couldn't justify buying it at full price (although I'd buy it whenever it was on offer if it was on par with persil for example)

Q3. Fragrance was lovely, I will comment more when I've used it a few times, as washing fragrance is always more noticeable the first few times you use it. Coped well on a quick 30 degree wash, with my husbands stinky shirts. (better than other brands).

Q4. Yes I'd recommend method for it's cleaning performance.

received mine- like the little bottle, I have a pile of washing this weekend so will be giving it a good try

CharlotteBronteSaurus Fri 30-Nov-12 19:02:12

just got ours today - thank you very much - and marking the thread for later.

Haberdashery Fri 30-Nov-12 19:10:28

Oh god, the fragrance is horrible. I will add proper feedback later but this smell is everything I dislike about detergent/softener smells and compares very unfavourably to Ecover which is what I normally use.

Got mine today will pop back soon as first wash is on smile

Mine arrived today...

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump? I really liked it. I liked that it is environmentally friendly. Love the pump bottle as you end up only using exactly what you need and there's no wastage. It did the job of cleaning a load of quite dirty clothes really well.
Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid? The instructions on the pump were in French. I don't know if this was just for the tester packs?
Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power? The fragrance was good, the clothes just smelt clean rather than highly perfumed. I tested it on a fairly dirty load including some of my toddler's soiled clothes and it got them really clean.
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, I'd say it was good for the environment, effective and the bottle is very cute!

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump? Seemed very small but at least it doesn't take up room like my box of capsules does.
Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid? The smell.
Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power? I didn't like the fragrance. Haven't inspected the clothes yet as washed them but been ill.
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? Might mention to my MIL I have tried a new detergent and it is really quick and easy to use, but other than that I probably won't talk about it with anyone. Not a topic I discuss with the mums at school!

Arrived today , have already done a spectacular 3 loads !
Love the small bottle , and the squirty pump , will compare and contrast in a couple of days .
Thanks very much

Waiting for mine...

JiltedJohnsJulie Fri 30-Nov-12 19:19:16

Mine arrived today. Am way too excited about doing the washing now!

Whyriskit Fri 30-Nov-12 19:24:26

Liked the bottle, short of space in kitchen! Didn't mind the smell. Washing is currently drying so will comment more once dried, ironed and worn!

Wash is on smile, google translate helped me with the directions!

Usage instructions:
"IT'S EASY

first use: twist pump to open. pump until you get a steady stream

to wash: squirt liquid into drawer or directly into the drum

2 pumps= small load

4 pumps= medium load

6 pumps= large or very dirty load

if you have very hard water add an extra pump

to pre-treat: squirt a pea-sized amount on stain. allow to stand, then wash as usual."

MsElleTow Fri 30-Nov-12 19:33:13

Marking my place.

Done one load so far. I used 7squirts in my 11kg machine and I was impressed that it got tomato sauce completely out of the table cloth. I'll leave more feed back when I've done more loads, including Rugby kit!

PoppyAmex Fri 30-Nov-12 19:33:55

I got an email from Helen, I assume we all did but maybe didn't check it so here it is for people who are about to use it:

Hi all,

Most of you should have received your samples by now. If you haven't yet, don't panic! It should be with you by Monday.

If you've received yours already, you'll notice that the usage instructions are in French! Method asked me to pass on their apologies for this mix up - they will be sending you a little something in the post to say sorry! I've copied the English translation below so please use this when you're trying the product out!

I'll be in touch again soon with the feedback thread link.

Thanks
Helen

Blah, cross post

All set to try it out tomorrow - are people squirting it in the drawer or the drum? If in the drawer does it go where the powder would go? <clueless>

paneer Fri 30-Nov-12 19:36:22

yes, goes where you would put your usual detergent

lubeybooby Fri 30-Nov-12 19:36:52

Mine arrived today, will start testing tomorrow smile

Haberdashery Fri 30-Nov-12 19:39:40

You know, I'm particularly shocked by the smell because most other Method things smell lovely. I use the wood polish when I don't really need to just because it smells so gorgeous.

paneer Fri 30-Nov-12 19:43:07

First wash complete! So far....

Q1 What was your overall impression of the Methon Laundry Liquid 25 Wash Pump?
Love the compactness and little packaging. (Not impressed they sent out French labels). Like the pump part.

Q2 Is there anything you'd change about Method Laundry Liquid?
At the moment not.

Q3 What did you think of the fragrance? And the cleaning power?
Love the smell, not overpowering or flowerly. Subtle and clean-linen-smelling.

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?
At the moment yes... I washed sheets and DD's school shirts and they smelt and looked clean. Smells nice and subtle. Packing brilliant. Very easy to dispense and clean. Small bottle as well. (Maybe when I finish we can use the bottle for something else?)

ThePathanKhansWitch Fri 30-Nov-12 19:43:20

Q1) I loved the bottle, the pump means no waste. Great size.
Q2) Sorry but a bit more cleaning power.
Q3) I loved the smell, didn,t. find it overpowering. My first wash was kids clothes, mud and chocolate (bad stains, i know).I would usually pre treat, i didn,t and stains were still there. I think in "normal" stains it would be fine.
Q4) I wouldn,t recommend just because i didn,t find it hit the spot with stains.I will use it to do my underwear, i love the smell.

paneer Fri 30-Nov-12 19:43:41

habs do you not like the smell??

Sparklingbrook Fri 30-Nov-12 19:44:56

I think when I review I will need to know how much it costs.
