How We Tested Method MutliSurface Cleaner

I tested Method multisurface cleaner on numerous surfaces, including laminate countertops, concrete countertops, tile backsplash, stainless steel, and wood cabinets. 

When I first got this cleaner, I wasn’t sure if I’d like the scent. I enjoy citrus smells, but grapefruit is never my top choice. But, to my surprise, it smelled great. The scent is noticeable without being overpowering and didn’t aggravate my allergies. 

The cleaner is easy to spray. One of the most significant downsides is that it gets soapy if you spray too much.

Here’s a look at how this cleaner worked on different surfaces.

  • Countertops – I used this cleaner on concrete and laminate countertops. It cleaned both well, leaving them spotless afterward.
  • Stainless Steel – Method Multi-Purpose cleaners worked well at removing dirt from my stainless steel appliances but did leave them a bit streaky.
  • Cabinets – I have stained wood cabinets and Method cleaned them without removing any of the finish.
  • Backsplash – The cleaner was successful in removing dirt and grease from my subway tile backsplash.

Are There Any Drawbacks to Method Multisurface Cleaner?

Overall the cleaner did an excellent job. It’s a great choice for a gentle, everyday cleaner. There were only three drawbacks:

  • It gets soapy if you overspray it
  • Left streaks on stainless steel
  • Isn’t a disinfectant

If you have stainless steel appliances, this will clean them, but you’ll still need to use a dedicated stainless steel cleaner and polish them every week or two to keep your appliances shiny.
