This is mostly a food blog, but in this case I’m going to make an exception. I was in Safeway about a month ago a noticed this in the laundry section.
This Method laundry detergent claimed to do 25 loads and it’s barely bigger than a cup of coffee. 300 ml to be exact. Way smaller by a factor of 3 or 4 compared to everything else on the shelf. 4 pumps of the dispenser per load say the instructions I was skeptical but I bought it just to see. It’s also “free & clear” so no added dyes or perfumes. We are a fragrance free household due to asthma & allergies so this is important. According to the package, it’s 95% plant based & biodegradable.
We’ve just bought our second “bottle” (hardly even feels right calling it that) and the stuff works as advertised.
What’s the big deal? Reduced plastic sure but what’s probably far more important in the long run is that it weighs so little compared to even regular “ultra” detergents. Less weight = less fuel to transport to market = less co2 emissions. That’s 2x clean in my books. Way to go Method.
What’s up with the title of this entry? The English tag line for this detergent is Extraordinarily Concentrated. The French is Hyper Mega Ultra Concentre, which is just cool.
Btw, I photographed this next to that particular cup because using this stuff seems awfully close to science fiction. Like something they’d use on the Enterprise when the molecular dirt dissolver broke down.
