I've only used it a few times, but I think it smells and works great. I find that I have to spray once on top, then flip everything over in the dryer and spray again on the other side to avoid static; which also probably avoids the intense smells that others have mentioned by avoiding concentrating it all in one spot. Pretty minor I think.
I think 3 stars is generous for this product:
That said, I was hoping "fresh air" would be very subtle because my stash of Method dryer cloths ran out. Followed the instructions and put 4 sprays into large loads of sheets, towel and clothing. While the fabric softener does what it promises, especially with 3 shedding cats, I cannot stand the scent. I'm trying not to re-wash everything, but I have a constant headache because everything smells of "fresh air". I gave the bottle away to a friend who isn't as sensitive to scents as I am.
I really liked the "free clear" unscented dryer cloths. While I doubt Method will bring the cloths back, I really hope they make an unscented version of the spray. For now, it's plain white vinegar for me.
Another great product from Method. It smells really nice and lasts until the next wash. It removes static most of the time, except during our very cold, very low humidity winters (Alberta, Canada).
I like the product, works well. I do find that if you do back to back loads the initial spray is a little strong in the second round but that's not a huge deal. I liked the dryer sheets that were discontinued but my husband did not and never used them. Because this is "fun" to spray he uses it every time.
I enjoyed the product while it actually worked, but like many others, the pump eventually pooped out. It was fine for the first 10 times I used it and now it won't work at all. I have tried everything to unclog it, to no avail. I am very irritated, as I have most of the bottle left and can't use it!!
I purchased this despite all the reviews about the pump, and I am glad I did...There are no issues with it. I shake well before use, then shake it again, and place in the off position. I've used it about 4-5 times now with no issues.
It smells great, and I love that it's more natural and is not tested on animals.
Love the fact it's not a dryer sheet. So much waste with those! The clothes come out soft and smell great.
I've been using this one for a few weeks now, once or twice a week and have had not problems with the spray clogging. I shake it before every use.
My first bottle of this stuff worked great, and my family all loved it, and my husband's sensitive skin was not offended by it. The pumps on the 2nd and 3rd bottles have failed after a single spray. I checked the reviews, and apparently this has been going on for a while. They replaced a product that works with one that just frustrates people because they can't use it! Why don't they fix the problem? I'm looking elsewhere for a green fabric softener.
Love the product but the pump gets ridiculously clogged. Will this be fixed soon?
I have purchased 4 bottles of this stuff so far and the pump has become clogged and stopped working on every one!
I have taken to pouring a little on an item of wet clothing in the dryer and letting it distribute that way. Otherwise I'd have to dump the product!
As for softening and scent, it works well and the "Fresh Air" one is my favourite. I intend to buy it again to see if the pump problem is fixed!
I'm amazed at how long a bottle of this has lasted. I've used a single bottle for twice as long as I expected it to last based on the description on the packaging. I agree with some previous reviewers that the clothes sometimes retain static, but only on cold wintry days. I'll take soft, fresh smelling clothes with a bit of static cling over static-free clothing that gives my husband a rash the way all of the big label fabric softeners do!
I'm a Method user, so thought I'd give this a try, but I'll pass on a reorder. It works OK, but 'just' OK.
I too miss the mallow and rice scented dryer sheet, those are the best! I would have bought a stack of them if I knew Method discontinued it.
Was nervous to try this, as so many reviewers said the sprayer stopped working after a few loads, but that hasn't been my experience at all! Leaves clothes soft and smelling nice. Only downside is that I find clothes staticky, but that can be overcome with one sheet of Method's Free and Clear Dryer Sheets.
This fabric softener is far better than the traditional products. The smell is a bit too strong for me but it does get the job done. I love the fact that it is vegan too!
This product smells fantastic! I use soap nuts in lieu of laundry detergent, and using this product makes my laundry smell fresh and clean. It doesn't remove static cling out of all clothing (eg. fuzzy and fluffy baby blankets), but most of the clothes does come out static free. Overall a great product, I plan to continue buying this product again and again!
Not impressed! What happened to the mallow and rice dented baby dryer sheets? Now those were amazing! Please bring back Method!
I had high hopes for this product, but the clothes came out full of static.
The scent is quite masculine. It doesn't get rid of static any better than other dryer products I've tried (both traditional and eco-friendly).
