Readers who have been checking out the site for some time might remember the “discussion” that came out of my post about Method versus Seventh Generation. Seems that a lot of people had their own opinions, which is always nice to see. And thought we do stick to mostly Seventh Generation cleaners, there is definitely something to be said for Method products. Their design is hands-down perfect, and the products are all biodegradable. My main issue with them was the non-release of their Material Data Safety Sheet information, but they have assured me that this information is forthcoming.
So with this thought in mind, I decided that you might like to know about a new product from Method that looks pretty cool. It is called the “omop”, and it is both a washable microfiber mop for wet cleaning or a dry sweeper with compostable sweeping cloths. For wet cleaning, they have a biodegradable cleaning fluid you use with the mop, and the mop itself can be reused up to 50 times before you have to get rid of it. Granted, you COULD use a regular mop that lasts forever, but honestly, they never get clean and you cannot take the mop heads off to clean them thoroughly. So this is pretty ideal. As for the sweeper cloths, they are derived from 100% corn and are compostable…you can just toss them in with your kitchen scraps out in the garden. That is even MORE than ideal!
Supposedly these will be (or are already) available in a Target near you. As usual, the design team at Method created yet another beautiful project that will make your house look better just by being in it. Granted, I have not tried this mop system out yet, but I hope to be able to do so soon. (Method, are you reading this? hint hint) It looks like a pretty cool and useful way to keep our wood floors clean, which normally is a battle between a mop, a broom, a sweeper and a bucket of water and cleaning fluid. You can check out the omop over at Method.com.
