Do you have a dirty little secret?

We all like things clean. No one actually wants to live amongst mess, dirt and germs. It’s just some people put more of a priority on cleaning than others. In fact a recent survey* by natural cleaning brand method revealed that for some, it’s way down on their list.

Some of the revelations aren’t too shocking. Who hasn't executed the five-second rule when dropping food if no one is watching? We’re surprised it’s only 15% to be honest. And grabbing something to wear from the dirty laundry basket (one in five of us) is understandable when we’re in a rush.
 
But some of the grimy habits are less forgivable. For example, more than one in eight (13%) clean our bathroom less than once every six months while one in six (16%) wash our bedsheets just as infrequently. Yes, you read that correctly: EVERY. SIX. MONTHS.

Lifestyle

Other confessions include wiping lipstick marks off ‘clean’ wine glasses with our fingers and buying new clothes rather than iron the ones we have.
 
massive 90% of us blame cutting cleaning corners on lack of time, with over a third (37%) attributing this to spending too much time at work, so it’s hardly surprising that the survey also revealed that a quarter of people say their cleaner is more important to them than their doctor, dentist and hairdresser.
 

No matter who’s cleaning and how often, choosing the right products makes it much easier to maintain a clean, hygienic home and method, a pioneer of natural cleaning products, offers effective, great-smelling products in packaging so stylish it’s almost a shame to hide it under the sink.

The latest addition to method’s range is the pomegranate collection, inspired by the vibrant and vivacious superfood for its powerful, sweet smelling multi-surface cleaner, washing up liquid and hand wash.
 
It’s all people, plant and pet friendly – even if you fall into the camp that confesses to cleaning your house in the nude.
