remember when...

Did you know at one time method's all-surface spray cleaner was called Home spray cleaner? Pretty cool, right? And it only came in lavender. You also had Kitchen, in grapefruit mandarin (I still can't figure out why they got rid of this scent, it blows pink grapefruit away!), Shower in the ever fabulous ylang-ylang, Glass in mint, and Bathroom in cucumber. Yeah, most of these scents are still around, but at one time they were all specific to certain areas of the house!

Curious to know if anyone still owns some of these old-skool bottles? Check back this weekend for a post on hoarding (ha ha ha! No but, uh, really, hoarding!) long-gone-so-long method products!

I have been hoarding Magnolia dish wash for a few years. I have 6 bottles left- when Target clearanced them out. I love that scent-!
I used the dish cubes I was hoarding from that era too.

As much as I usually love the scent of grapefruit, I really dislike the smell of anything Method Pink Grapefruit. :( Grapefruit Madarin sounds good!

I have some blue sky mint glass cleaner in a flat kind of bottle--what's up with that? Or is mine not as old-skool as the ones you posted? Back when these ones were still around, I never thought to hoard my cleaning supplies--I totally took them for granted. :(

method had "rounded-bottom" bottles for quite some time, before moving to the more squarish/four corner bottles they now use. Not sure which ones you mean exactly? All the ones in the photos look like their early "rounded-bottom" bottles.

Huh. It's like, a wide, flat "oval" shaped bottle. The copyright on this one is 2002. I'm not really hoarding it because I love it, this is just an honest indication of how little I wash my windows. :) Here's pics so you can see what I mean.

Kirby,

The only place I've ever seen those bottles was at Linens and Things, a long time ago. They used to carry method products, and all the spray cleaners were in the "flat" bottles for some reason. If you didn't shop there, LOL, perhaps leftover Linens and Things items that were sent to Big Lots?

I actually never use my window cleaner for the windows. LOL (Even though they need cleaning! Ha ha!) I use it for all the glass in my house; mirrors, a glass table, the tv, etc.! Thanks for the pics!

OH, and I (finally!) shipped out your prize! Enjoy!

I still have a partially full bottle of the "Kitchen" cleaner -- I just don't intensively clean the kitchen that often. Though I'll be sorry to use it up, since I love the scent. I did pick up the "Pro" surface cleaner so I can switch over to that when the "Kitchen" runs out.
