Casa Beta: Method's Le Scrub

Casa Beta: Method's Le Scrub

While I usually clean my bathroom (or, ahem, I should say, my husband cleans the bathroom) with vinegar, baking soda, and Bon Ami, I decided it was time for a switch. And to be completely honest, this switch was pressured by the hubz's complaints about the overwhelming vinegar smell in our small bathroom space during cleaning. And I agree, it's definitely a pungent scent. So, when Method sent over some cleaning products for me to test, I immediately grabbed the bathroom products. I started off testing Le Scrub ($6), a mild abrasive cleanser.

I needed to use the Le Scrub because I'd dyed a silk dress in a bucket, which I'd placed in the bathtub. And when I poured the dye water out, the tub was stained with the fuchsia dye. It looked positively crime scene-like in our porcelain tub, since the bottom and sides of the tub were stained and speckled a reddish pink. The hubz was not pleased. "Great, we have a pink tub," he groused.

Thus, the dye situation led me to put the Le Scrub to a stringent test. To see how it did,

I'm not going to lie to you: this job took a little elbow grease. However, I'd much rather put a little oomph in my scrubbing than breathe in bleach! And wow, does the Le Scrub smell good. It uses eucalyptus oil for its scent, and it smells absolutely dreamy. I could've sworn I was on a hike in a local park's eucalyptus grove instead of in my pink-stained bathroom.


My method with this Method product was to immediately scrub with the Le Scrub after I'd poured out the dye water. Then, I sprayed the product over the bottom and sides of the tub and gently dry-scrubbed the product onto the porcelain. I let this sit overnight, and scrubbed it out the next morning. I doubt that you'd have to employ the same technique on a normal, dingy tub, but for a big job like this, it worked splendidly.

Method's site reveals that none of its products use nasty cleaning agents such as phthalates, parabens, ammonia, or triclosan, and the Le Scrub's ingredients seem pretty natural to me. I definitely liked this product, and while I'm a pretty staunch supporter of vinegar and baking soda, I'll be restocking Le Scrub for dealing with the tub in the future.

Love Le Scrub, we also use their Lil Bowl Blu Toilet Cleaner and the Tub n Tile Spray and love them both! The Lil Bowl Blu is similar to the Le Scrub in that it's best to apply it, and then let it sit for a bit to do it's magic before scrubbing. I usually squirt it in the bowl when I start cleaning the bathroom, and then scrub it when I'm done cleaning everything else (about 10-15 mins later). Works really well! Method rules.

Thanks Casa for this post. My bath-mat recently made orange rings on my tub that won't come off and I was going to use smelly bleach but will now try this Method product.
