Photos from AmazonClorox and Method are two big names on the cleaning front, but they've got nothing on Mother Nature.

Don't take my word for it -- the votes are being tallied over at Vote Daisy, a site put up by Method in response to a Clorox lawsuit that claims the company has sole rights to the dainty flower.

"It's like trying to own the rights to the cucumber or the question mark," Method's founders say in a YouTube plea. 

Their site notes Mother Nature would object to Clorox's claim on the Daisy design for its GreenWorks label, and they're letting you vote on who gets the flower. Mother Earth is claiming the bulk of the votes at the moment.

Of course, Method would like a little piece of Mother Nature's action themselves -- that's the point of a letter from Clorox laying claim. According to a report by The New York Times, the trademark counsel to Clorox has asked Method to "stop using daisies in ads, promotions, and other forms of marketing."

Frankly, the fight over a flower doesn't engender a whole lot of love for either company -- their green credits notwithstanding.

I wonder what they'd have to say about the sour cream company?
