Timeles Aloe Vera Leg Cream: Hot Feet

I'll warn you, this is a fairly random use for the Timeless Aloe Vera Leg Cream but my husband has come to love it.  My husband's feet are always HOT.  It can be the middle of winter and he'll have a pile of blankets on him but his feet will be sticking out and he'll be complaining that they're hot.
 
I recently had the idea to have him use the Timeless Aloe Vera Leg Cream on his feet.  It has menthol in it so it creates a cooling sensation.  I think this feels great on my legs after I've been on my feet all day.  He thinks it feels great on his hot feet at night.  He even travels with it now.

Crystal Deodorant: Mosquito Bites

Did you know that Norwex Crystal Deodorant isn't just for stinky underarm pitties?  You can also use it to relive the itch caused by mosquito bites.  Yes, you heard me right.  I had heard this over the winter and finally had ample opportunities to test it this past week.

We went camping last weekend.  I HATE bug spray so I was trying something else to keep the mosquitoes away.  I would say it worked on the upper half of me but my legs and feet were not so fortunate.  I itched most of the way home.  Once I unpacked and found my Norwex Crystal Deodorant, I got it wet and started rubbing it on all of my mosquito bites.  It takes a minute or two for it to start working, but when it does, it feels so wonderful because the itching ceases.  I would say it lasts for a good 6-8 hrs. and then you need to reapply.

Here are some additional posts regarding the crystal deodorant:

Norwex: Now Shipping from Texas!

I never mentioned that Norwex opened a new distribution center in Texas in May.  Our products no longer have to go through customs to get to us!  Shipping has been very fast.  I placed an order mid afternoon on Friday and it arrived this morning (Wednesday).  Less than a week!  Norwex has had such amazing growth in the US, that a distribution center became necessary to sustain such tremendous growth.

Enviro Cloth - Kid Messes in the Car

I have kids.  They make messes.  This one is particularly photogenic.

I have no idea what that goo on the door is.  I'm sure it's a concoction of things since I haven't cleaned my car in months.


I got an Enviro cloth wet (with just water) and wiped it clean.

Don't believe me that this cloth is so wonderful?  We'll you don't have to.  WKOW, in Madison, WI put Norwex to the test and did a story about their findings.  Watch this short news story: http://www.wkow.com/story/22164393/2013/05/05/norwex
