If you're going to use a Method Home product you have to check for methylisothiazolinone!

We've emailed Method Products a few times over the years and they've been pretty prompt in replying. Until the question became, "Why do you use methylisothiazolinone (MIT) in your products?"

No reply. Not to many, many emails. Not to multiple Tweets.

Next to methylisothiazolinone they write, "inherently biodegradable; made from synthetic materials; low skin + eye irritation"

Complete lie. MIT is a powerful synthetic biocide and preservative within the group of isothiazolinones. Low skin and eye irritation? Then why is there an 'Epidemic of allergy to methylisothiazolinone, a preservative'?

Guess nerve damage isn't a problem for Method either.
