My husband's truck caught on fire in our driveway. After this disaster and the mess on my carpet from the firemen airing out my home. My husband brought home some horrible chemical to clean up the black gunk on the carpet. It smelled dangerous and I have two cats. I was afraid the cat would get this noxious solvent on their paws. After all this I proceeded to get a hot bucket of water to try and remove the solvent as best as I could, I thought the method would help to wash away this chemical. To my amazement, areas that my husband had not gotten to with the solvent, I tried the method cleaner on it and wow. I did not even have to scrub to remove the tar like gunk. My husband was amazed as well.

I will always have this product in my home, all the method items are great. Thank you for a wonderful product.

This product had an overpowering artificial scent. I was misled by the "grapefruit" description, thinking it would naturally derived (from essential citrus oil. Wrong: I couldn't stay in the same room where I'd sprayed this product. It irritated my skin, and I can't use the rest of the quantity that I purchased. I suppose it was my fault for not reading the ingredients list.

This brand seems to market itself as a natural, green product line. There are a lot of companies out there like this these days, and it takes a good amount of effort on the part of the consumer to cross-check their claims. I've been using the ECW's guide a lot: http://www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners/5196-methodAllPurposeSurfaceCleanerPinkGrapefruit

After doing further research, I went with other legitimately green/eco-conscious products (Attitude, Aussan, Better life, Earth Friendly are a few to check out). We really don't have to be using chemicals to clean: it's not only harmful to the environment and to ourself, but from a practical standpoint, it's not even necessary.

    Smells like roses, not grapefruit!

        Comments about method All-Purpose Surface Cleaner, Pink Grapefruit, 28 fl oz:

        The label says "pink grapefruit" in english, but when the bottle arrived, I noticed the french part of the label said "grapefruit and rose." To me there is a big difference between a grapefruit/citrus scent and a rose/floral scent. And this certainly smells much more like roses than grapefruits. A major con for me, since I happen to hate anything rose scented. If I could send it back I would. Unfortunately, it's all going down the drain. I can't even find a friend who wants it for free.

          This is my second bottle and I love it! I only use naturally based household and personal care products and am so pleased at how effective this cleaner is. It smells great, like grapefruit, even my boyfriend enjoys cleaning with it! We use it to clean counter tops, oven top, bathroom and spot clean our kitchen floor. It dissolves grease and messes and leaves the surface very clean and usually shiny.

              I find it works great. I really like the scent of the grapefruit. Cook's Country Magazine and tv show rated spray kitchen cleaners and this one (in lavender) came out on top as Highly Recommended. I plan to try all scents.

                Really great! Even works if you spray it on burnt stuff of the stove... let it sit for a moment and it comes right off! Microwave too. And the smell is lovely.

                      Method All Purpose Surface Cleaner

                       –  Stinging eyes, burning lungs and headaches from strong chemical surface sprays don't have to be the cost of keeping your house clean. The natural ingredients in Method All-Purpose Surface Cleaner, Pink Grapefruit attack grease, grime, dirt and oil just as efficiently and effectively as other cleaners, and all you smell is a pleasant grapefruit scent! The surfactants – the active cleaning chemicals that loosen and lift off the dirt – in this cleaner are derived from natural botanical sources, including corn, coconut and soda ash. All of them are safe to use around kids, pets and, yes, you. So, go ahead and clean those counters, stovetops, sinks and showers – any surface from tile and steel to wood and glass – without worry. It does the job on the dirt, not you.

                      The Power of Green



                      Cleaning is a chore, but it shouldn't hurt you or the environment. It doesn't have to be a choice between them. Method formulas are designed with Powergreen Technology, which use only non-toxic, plant-derived, renewable ingredients, but still deliver a strong, effective cleaning agent. The safe ingredients used are natural and renewable, but they get the job done. That's the goal of a company that calls itself "people against dirty." At the same time, the Method products go easy on the environment: The ingredients are non-toxic and biodegradable, and instead of the smell of ammonia and other strong chemicals, you can enjoy the scent of flowers and fruit. The bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic, and they can be recycled again, too.
