Dirty Little Secrets about Laundry Suds & Method Detergent for a Year!


Am I the only one who hates the smell of clothes that have been dried outside on a clothesline? Hate it, hate it, hate it.

It smells like my little brothers did after playing outside all day, and that was just gross.

So as much as I appreciate trying to be green, I’m staying inside. (But I’ll wave at you from the window as I fold my freshly laundered “Fresh Air” scented clothes washed Method detergent style!)


And you can’t even be that mad at me for not drying my clothes outside, because at least I’ve been using an eco-friendly detergent. Talk about a green product from a green company!

Method is in business to change business. Their challenge is to make sure that every product they send out into the world is a little agent of environmental change, using safe and sustainable materials, manufactured responsibly. And that also means no animal testing.

When it comes down to it, Method is here to make products that work, for you and for the planet. Ones that are as easy on the eyes as they are on the nose. It’s a tall order, but they wouldn’t want to do anything else.




Have you ever thought about how the fill line in your laundry detergent cap is meant to help you use the correct amount of detergent, but yet that line is nearly impossible to see? A little sketchy, huh?

I love the four pumps per load exactness of Method!

Dirty Little Secrets about Suds

(caused by detergent overdosing)

Residue on clothes
Odor in washing machine because of residues trapped in washer
Wet loads of laundry that haven’t been properly drained as extreme suds can slow spinning cycle down
Leaking, particularly in front load washers so Longer washing cycles as the washer automatically adds extra rinses and
pauses to break down suds
Less water savings as more water is used to rinse the load if excess suds are detected
Wear and tear on the washing machine’s pump and motor because the suds act like a brake

When I read about the suds, I had an a-ha moment. In my last house, my laundry drain was pumped into the sewer through a sump pump, and when that pump burned out, the plumber told me that the suds make the pump work extra hard, so I should be careful. I pretty much dismissed what he said because it didn’t click.

Until now.

So if I could just fix my other dirty little secret about laundry, I’d be set.

Folding procrastination. Oy.

I highly recommend the “Fresh Air” scent, by the way. (Smells better than fresh air, or at least better than fresh air in combination with little brothers.) 😉

    I like that they are eco friendly! As a person who is sensitive to scents though (allergic) I wonder how it would fare in that department??

    I haven’t tried Method in a very long time! I usually make my own laundry detergent but since purchasing an he washer, I’ve only used the specialty detergent.
