Norwex is in the news again.  This time someone who cleans houses talks about the growing trend to clean without all of the chemicals.

Cleaning Paste - Rust on Bathroom Sink

So, my husband left a can of shaving cream on his bathroom sink and it left a few rings of rust.


This is what it looked like after I tried to use just a wet Enviro Cloth to wipe it away.  It took care of some of it but there was still some rust left.  So, I got out the Cleaning Paste.


That took care of it!

Gift Ideas for 2013!

It's that time of year again.  We all have Christmas shopping to do for a variety of people.  My list of Norwex gift ideas for 2013 is very similar to last year's (everyone still needs the awesome basics of Norwex) with a few additions from our newly released products.  Want more gift ideas?  Check my website.  The links in the product descriptions below will take you to previous blog posts for the item so you can learn more about the products you're interested in.


#1 - Enviro Cloth:  This is a must have for every home.  You can clean 95+% of your home with this cloth using only water on it.  Not a fan of blue?  It also comes in yellow, green, and red (pink really).
#2 - Window Cloth: Once you remove the grease and grime from your windows, mirrors, faucets, stainless steel appliances, etc, use the Window cloth to dry the surface for a streak free shine.  No really, I'm not kidding.  Check out this post for more info on these first two items.  Want to save some money?  Buy the Basic Package which includes both the Enviro (blue) and Window cloths.

#3 - Dusting Mitt: Use it dry to easily dust all of your surfaces.  Use it damp to clean window screens.  The mitt is microfiber but has a higher pile than the Enviro cloth.  With the mitt on, it is easy to remove dust from even the oddest shaped objects.  And no more sprays that leave residues behind.  Want to save even more money?  Buy the Household Package which includes the Enviro cloth (green), window cloth, and dusting mitt.



#4 - Enviro Wand: Hands down my favorite new product for 2013.  The Enviro Wand gives you a little extra reach when you're dusting.  It also BENDS to make it easy to dust ceiling fans, above cabinets, bookshelves, etc.  If you have a Norwex mop, you can attach the Enviro Wand to the end of the mop handle to get those really high spots.  Several people are getting one of these from me this year!






 #5 - Reusable Sandwich Wrap & Snack Bag: These items are both BPA, Phthalates, PVC, & Lead free!  The reusable sandwich bag keeps your sandwich snug with a Velcro closure and unfolds to make a place mat!  The snack bag is perfect for fruit, veggies, crackers, etc.  It also has a Velcro strip to keep the bag closed. 


#6 - Optic Scarf: Many of us are carrying around at least one screen for part of our day.  This microfiber optic scarf is great for cleaning phone, e-readers, tablets, glasses, and jewelry.  Safe for anti-glare surfaces.  And, it can attach to a purse, backpack or luggage so it's always handy when you need it!

#7 - Body Pack: How about a little pampering for yourself?  Or a friend or family member?  The body pack includes 3 cloths that are great for cleaning your face.  With just water!  How easy is that.  Simply your bedtime routine!  Body packs come in the vintage colors shown, neutral colors (while supplies last), and vibrant colors.


#8 - Naturally Timeless Lip Balm: This paraben-free lip balm includes organic aloe vera, coconut oil, and tea tree oil.  Can your current lip balm claim all that?  Check out the ingredients of your current lip balm.  You may be surprised what you find.  And not in a good way.

#9 - Cleaning Paste: This really should be higher on the list but I got tired of cleaning products at the top of a Christmas list.  While they are awesome cleaning products, it's good to pamper ourselves during the holidays too.  Anyway, this is another must have item for your house.  Excellent for glass top stoves, sinks, soap scum on shower doors and tub, cleaning grout, removing cleaning solution residue from stainless steel appliances, removing rust spots on flatware, and so much more.  I've had my cleaning paste since February, use it at home and at all my parties, and still have 3/4 of it left.  It lasts forever!

#10 - Superior Mop Set: This is one of the most coveted items in our catalog because of it's ease of use and how well it works.  The yellow pad is the superior dry mop pad.  This pad picks up all the fine dust that leaves streaks when you mop.  The blue pad is the wet pad.  Just get it damp with water and clean your floors like they have never been cleaned before.  You use just water so there is no residue left behind for your kids or pets to pick up when they walk across the floor.

#11 - Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent: Filler free, fragrance free, dye free.  It may not be the most conventional gift, but everyone needs it!  If you have an HE machine, you need 1 tsp. of detergent to make your brights bright and your whites white.  With 1 tsp, you will get 276 loads from a bag.  That's $0.08 per load!  This also works in traditional washing machines, you just need a little more.
#12 - Dryer Balls:  Dryer sheets are full of chemicals.  You dry your clothes with them and those chemicals coat your clothing.  Then you put the clothes up against your skin all day.  Your skin is the largest organ you have.  It absorbs all of those chemicals.  Think about how a nicotine patch works...  Norwex dryer balls are softer than other brands so they don't make the clunking noise in your machine.  They tumble with your clothes, lifting and separating so your cloths dry faster, saving you more money!




#13 - Descaler:  This is the product that really caught my husband's attention.  I cleaned our shower doors and our bathroom didn't stink for days afterwards.  This product is great for removing mineral build-up on shower doors, around sink faucets, on sink faucets, around sink drains, or from refrigerator drip trays under the water dispenser.

#14 - Mattress CleanerOur mattresses are full of dust mites.  And what do dust mites do?  They poop.  For many, this poop irritates their throats and this is what causes them to snore.  I've heard many many stories of people who got a better night of sleep thanks to the Mattress Cleaner.  The cleaner is an enzyme based cleaner.  You spray 10-12 sprays on a king size mattress every 3-4 months.  The enzymes eat the dust mites food source (dead skin cells) and poop.  This causes the dust mites to starve.  Then the mattress cleaner goes to work digesting the little bodies leaving you with a clean mattress.  Once the enzymes have done their work, they break down on their own.  Why not give the gift of better sleep!

UPP - One Tough Laundry Detergent

A few weeks ago I helped my son get his jacket on only to find that it was covered in dirt. 

I'm assuming this happened at school the week before when the weather was cool.  Then it warmed up and we didn't need the jacket so I didn't notice it right away. 

I decided this was a good test for Norwex Ultra Power Plus (UPP) Laundry Detergent.  I didn't pretreat this with anything, just tossed it in the washing machine with 1 tsp of UPP.  Yes, just 1 teaspoon. 

This is what came out of the dryer!  Not a spot of dirt to be found on it.

With an HE machine you need just 1 tsp. of detergent.  That's a cost of just $0.08/load for detergent!  There are not fillers, fragrance, or dyes in it so it is very gentle on sensitive skin.

Check out this post for pictures comparing UPP to a leading brand of "free" detergent.
