“I have been on the lookout for an eco-friendly wood surface cleaner for a while and was more than happy to try out this spray and wipe. Besides being rather fond of the scent, I felt that it did a pretty good job, leaving a fine finish on my wooden blinds, cupboards, and bedside tables.

Unfortunately, I had an allergic reaction to the product, after my hands came in contact with the cleaning liquid. Having said this, I do have sensitive skin, so if you do too, I would advise that you use gloves when using this product.”

Olivia Choong

“The women in my family have ardent loyalists to lemon pledge for decades. This, however, is likely to change after letting them have a try of Method’s Wood For Good Spray. Unlike conventional wood surface cleaners, Wood For Good does not have a sticky texture thus making cleaning easier with less effort. More importantly, Wood For Good gives the same shiny result that makes your wooden furniture look as good as new, with an almond scent for that natural earthiness. Will definitely try out the rest of Method’s product range!”
