I seem to be having more baking disasters than I do successes lately. Today I thought I would make some gingerbread men from my new book – Mary Berry’s Baking Bible. Everything was going really well, the mixture smelt delicious but when I turned it out it just wouldn’t come together. Instead of gingerbread men I made big fat gingerbread cookies which tasted good, it was just a shame about their appearance.
I made quite a mess in the kitchen as the sticky mixture seemed to get everywhere – I might have been a little frustrated!
My messy kitchen gave me a good opportunity to try out three products* from method, pioneers of planet-friendly and design-driven home, laundry and hand wash products. The powerful new formulas contain only non-toxic, bio-degradeable ingredients and even the bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic!
First of all I tried the kitchen cleaner which had a gentle clementine fragrance and gave such good results I went slightly mad and used it on the oven and kitchen cupboards too. Then I used the glass cleaner with a light mint fragrance with similar good results. Finally I used the multi-surface cleaner in the bathroom which had a lovely french lavender fragrance. Each bottle contains 828ml and has a RRP £3.06.
The clever powergreen technology uses plant-based solvents and surfactants which are optimised to tackle tough soils specific to each cleaner type meaning you can clean effectively without using dirty solvents! Perfect for use around the house as they are definitely kinder to the environment and will hopefully have a positive effect on my children’s eczema.
Method products are available at major supermarkets such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Waitrose as well as smaller independents.
