A Summary of Methods Cleaner Review
Method Cleaner is a line of toilet cleaning products developed by Kent Hoover and distributed by Wmh Inc. in early 2021. The product is promoted as an alternative to harsh commercial detergents. It is marketed as a safer alternative because it lacks triclosan, a common antibacterial ingredient found in most commercial cleaners. In addition to this, Method Cleaner is presented as having a low ewg score, which is the maximum number of toxic components allowed in a product.
In this article, we will compare Method Cleaner to its closest competing brand, Disinfection cleaner. Specifically, we will focus on two different aspects of the cleaners performance: its effectiveness and its safety. To accomplish our comparison, we have to examine each cleaning product's effectiveness. The aim of this article is to provide consumers with the information they need to make an informed decision when making their choice between a safer alternative to commercial cleaning products, and an expensive and possibly hazardous method cleaning product.
Method Cleaner is presented as having a low ewg score, because it is claimed to be a natural, un-irritating, gentle bathroom cleaner. According to the Method Cleaner website, the product is formulated with grapefruit seed extract, coconut oil, sodium hydroxide, and sodium lauryl sulfate. Among the ingredients described in the bottle, there are only sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium hydroxide, both of which are common ingredients in detergents. The website claims that Method Cleaner "is safe for the environment and non-toxic". However, in this cleaning comparison, we cannot assume that these claims are true.
Method Cleaner does not have a number of known ingredients that are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. For example, benzene is a substance that is considered a carcinogen by the E.P.A., even though there are no human carcinogens present in the amount found in this cleaner. There are a number of other common toxic chemicals that are used in cleaning solutions that are not regulated by the E.P.A. These include petroleum-based ingredients, such as petroleum jelly, mineral spirits, and petrolatum. It is unknown whether these ingredients pose a threat to health or whether they cause cancer-causing agents. Using a product with a small number of known ingredients that are regulated by the E.P.A. would probably not be a concern, since it would not contribute to the presence of a carcinogen or cancer-causing agent.
This product comes at a price of $40. Given that it has a small number of ingredients and its ewg score of less than two, it is unlikely to be a top choice of professional cleaning experts, who generally rate higher. For consumers, however, it is hard to find a cleaner that is better than this at a reasonable cost. Since the majority of consumers do not require the highest quality of cleaners, it is unlikely that they would be willing to pay more for this one.
The Method Cleaner is not the only floor cleaner with a questionable list of ingredients. Among the other frequently reviewed and rated hand soap and shower gel cleaning products are the Norelco Bodygroom, which contains a number of synthetic ingredients; the Aquaverve Deodorant Bodygroom, which contains silicone as an ingredient; and the Missful Hand and Body Shampoo and Bodygroom, which contains cetylpyridinium chloride, a known irritant. Each of these products has its own share of supporters, but consumers need to take precaution and check the product labels before buying.
One of the best rated green cleaning products is the Missful Hand and Body Shampoo and Bodygroom, which has a great list of ingredients that is supported by scientific research. It does not contain any artificial fragrances or colors, and the pH level in the cleaning solution makes it ideal for use on all skin types. It does not contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which is found in most hand soap brands. Green cleaning products such as these make the skin look and feel softer and smoother, and have no adverse effects, unlike their traditional counterparts.
When you read the above summary, you can see that the objective of this method grapefruit scented cleaning products review is not to say that they are ineffective, but instead to highlight their positive qualities. This is important, because although most of these cleaning products claim to be natural and organic, it is always up for debate as to whether or not chemicals really are "natural". There are safer options than using these type of products, which have a number of benefits over conventional methods, but they should only be used under professional guidance.
