Do you know a relative, friend, co-worker, or mistress who’s a little too obsessive compulsive? Sure, we all know one.
They wash their hands over 30 times a day; have a Costco-sized bottle of waterless hand sanitizer on their desk; opens public restroom doors with a paper towel; puts enough layers of sanitary covers on a toilet seat that it provides a slight cushion; or uses Lysol on EVERYTHING.
Well if you have yet to get that person a Christmas gift, what better gift to give them than the gift of cleanliness.
Might I suggest the Method Green Tea + Aloe Hand Wash.
Editor’s Note, Part Two: Um…For you smokers of the ganja, there is no correlation between the name Method and the fact that the color of this hand wash is green. Method products come in a wide range of colors.
I’ve been a really big fan of Method products for a while, although to be honest I’ve never used any of their products until now.
The reason why I didn’t try any was because I couldn’t get my dirty hands on Method products here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean (We so desperately need a Target). However, Impulsive Buy groupie Akiko gave me some.
Editorâ€™s Note, Part Three: Um…When I say, â€œshe gave me some,â€ I meant she gave me a bottle of Method Green Tea + Aloe Hand Wash. Just thought I’d clear that up, since she is an Impulsive Buy groupie.
I think I became a fan of Method products after reading an article about them in one of the Business 2.0 issues I stole from my doctor’s office.
I’m a fan because their products come in nice curvy bottles and I’m sucker for things that have curves, like Catherine Zeta Jones and the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Another reason is because their products are biodegradable, non-toxic, naturally derived, and arenâ€™t tested on animals, which satisfies my tree-hugging side. Finally, I like the company because its name starts with the letter â€œM.â€
As for the Method Green Tea + Aloe Hand Wash, besides being green in color and environmentally-friendly, it smells really good.
So what does green tea combined with aloe smell like? It smells clean. Itâ€™s not fruity, flowery, or girly. It just smells clean.
Just the way obsessive-compulsive people like to smell.
If you think about it, our obsessive-compulsive friends maybe on to something with all of this cleanliness. Think about all the things that get touched a lot on a daily basis by people. You don’t know what kind of people they are or where these people have been.
Imagine all the germs on these things, like doorknobs, money, elevator buttons, handrails, and Paris Hilton.
