I love washing dishes

Well, that's a lie. But I'm a sucker for a beautiful package, and last time we went to Target, I was delighted (again) with Method's products. I shamelessly admit I bought their dishsoap, handsoap, and bars of bath soap solely for their packages. Way to go, Method. I'm your dream consumer. Good thing your product is actually good, too.

Er, yes... I just did the same thing today. Did we need more dish soap? No. Did I buy some? Yep.

I love the Method products also. I think my favorite is the blue mint scented glass cleaner. I'm a sucker for beautiful packaging too and they definitely have it!

This products haven´t come to Spain yet... ohhhhhh... But they looks really good... How does they smell? If they smell like they seems, they will be really genial

I buy the pink grapefruit hand soap because it is exactly the color of the 50 year old pink tile in my bathroom. Nothing else in the world is that color!

Their omop is also amazing. It almost makes mopping enjoyable. And I love that it's reusable!

Glad to know I'm not the only one who does that. There's a grocery store where I live called Publix whose generic products are packaged so much better than the real thing. I come back from the grocery store with all kinds of things I don't need. (but they look nice in my cabinet)

This is a beautiful product:
Biodegradable
Recyclable Packaging
No Animal Testing

I'm so happy they are building a Super Target in my neighborhood. It's opening next month...Yippee

No Chemicals with my clean, Thank You!

I couldn't get one of Method's OMop kits into my little mitts fast enough! Compostable dusting cloths? Hello! Lovely design? Done.

I had to keep myself from buying the soap during my last Target run...but the dish soap got me...didn't need it...going today..probably will get some soap...

I would buy a can of gelatinous frog legs if it had awesome packaging.

Christy said...

Wow, this is great packaging. Well done! I think I would love washing dishes, too. =o)

Matt said...

Shouldn't greenchick be concerned about the carbon footprint of a Super Target? Geez, isn't regular Target big enough? What a consumer!

shaz said...

we don't have target in canada, but man, do I love that place! yes, I am also guilty of buying just for packaging.

Andrea said...

I'm glad I'm not the only one entranced by the packaging. I can't believe I bought the stuff solely on the way the bottle looked!

cheeky said...

It is pretty. I like green. Does it smell good?
I too like the packaging as it would just look pretty sitting out.
Isn't Target great?

Jess said...

It smells really nice.

Amber Yount said...

Do you keep these after they're empty? I've been thinking about collecting some nicely designed packages/posters, but didnt know if they would be junky :P

Pierina said...

well... I see I'm not the only one who do this kind of things, we are a lot and in different places of the world! Love this!
A few months ago I bought one and then keep it to use the bottle again :)

We love method, and bought the new style packaging,like you have when we bought dish soap a few months ago.

While it is really nice to look at there is a resivior or valley in the top of the nozzle, so soap sits there dries and the clogs it. Needless to say we have been a little dissapointed. But it still is nice to look at.

courtney said...

Oh Elizabeth, I'm in the South East too, and love Publix's packaging. It feels like update 50's packaging.

For anyone not in the SE, here is one of the few online pic's of their stuff

How funny...I just discovered Method this week! I bought the All Purpose Surface Cleaner - Pink Grapefruit Scent...I love carrying that spray bottle around and cleaning stuff! I'll try more Method next trip to Target.
Happy cleaning!

They're so pretty! They remind me of some vodka bottles I blogged about too
