You just don’t need window cleaner anymore!

Posted on November 4, 2015

Many of you know I’ve been on a “crusade” for a while to make sure no one I care about buys dryer sheets anymore . User dryer balls instead to be healthier AND save energy!

My new focus is to make sure no one I care about is buying and using window cleaner, because you just don’t need it anymore! Technology has advanced so that you can use our high-tech microfiber and just water. So don’t chance your kids and pets licking the residue off your sliding glass door, not to mention reducing your own chemical exposure while cleaning. Oh, and how many trees will you save by not using paper towels?

Use our Norwex basic pack instead. (Don’t let the word “basic” fool you – these things are magical.) Not only is it a healthier way, it’s ALSO faster and easier! AND, you buy them once and use them for years – cheaper, too!

Do you know anyone still buying window cleaner? I’d love to do a quick demo for them!

P.S. They’re not just for windows. You can use them all over your house – kitchen, walls, bathrooms, even carpet stains!

No More Window Cleaner

Why I Started Teaching People About Norwex

Posted on September 17, 2015

Six years ago I was looking at my children (ages 3 and 5 at the time – see how adorable?), and thinking about our family history of various autoimmune diseases. I really wanted to know if there was anything I could do to give them the best shot at growing up without chronic health problems.

Kids Tea Party

The list in our family was getting kind of long: allergiesasthmaCeliac diseaseJuvenile Diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis – all stuff where our immune system attacks our own bodies. What was going on? A friend recommended the book The Autoimmune Epidemic. There were lots of eye-openers, but the biggest thing mentioned, that hadn’t been on my radar at all before, was basic household cleaning chemicals.

I had heard before that kids that grow up in cleaner homes have more allergies and asthma. The theory was that these kids just weren’t exposed to enough germs, so their immune systems got bored and started attacking themselves or something. Now we’re getting smarter and we realize it’s not the lack of exposure to germs, it’s the increased exposure to cleaning chemicals.

So I started looking for greener options. I got a book with recipes for making your own cleaners. Who was I kidding? I don’t even like to cook, so that solution wasn’t likely to sustain itself for long. I bought some more natural cleaners, but they just didn’t work very well. I don’t like cleaning anyway, so I didn’t have much patience with it taking longer. I kind of gave up and decided I would just clean less.

When my cousin started describing Norwex to me, I kind of blew her off, thinking, “Yeah, I’ve tried those green cleaners. No thanks.” Plus, I really didn’t want anything to do with a party business. I had tried one before and knew I was a lousy salesperson. It wasn’t until I saw her wipe butter off a mirror with just a cloth and water that I went, “Wait, what?? How did you do that??”

She sent me home with a set of the basic cloths to try, and I (the non-cleaner, remember?) deep-cleaned my kitchen for two and a half hours that night. It cleaned the grease/dust mixture from the top of our microwave. It was literally “squeaky” clean! Then I did the walls around the stove – WOW! I couldn’t believe how EASY this was. It seemed like magic. All I was using was just a wet cloth! It “looked” like a rag, but this thing was actually a high-tech cleaning power tool!

I realized I had found what I’d been looking for. Not only would this provide the safe haven I wanted for my kids, it actually made cleaning easier and faster!! Everyone I knew deserved to see this stuff in action. I realized the reason Norwex is sold in parties is that you really have to SEE a demo to get the power of the cloths. Cleaning with water doesn’t *sound* like it would work. You have to see it in action.

So I invited some friends over to show them what I’d found, and here we are! I had NO idea it would turn into a full-time income and a life mission for me, but that’s a whole other story… :-)

Does my story resonate with you? Please reply and let me know!

Stinky Norwex Cloths?

Posted on February 2, 2015

Stinky Norwex Cloths

Because they look like rags, we sometimes forget that Norwex cloths are high-tech cleaning tools and need to be taken care of the way we care for other power tools!

Last week at a demo I met a woman whose cloths didn’t work as well after she washed them the first time, and she wasn’t happy with how her mop was picking up pet hair. Turns out she didn’t know that fabric softener clogs the cloths, and that the rubber brush recharges the dry mop pad. One of the main reasons we offer the education of in-person demos is so we can make sure you know how to keep these tools working well for you for years to come! They pick up so much grime for us, we have to know how to help them release that grime so they can work over and over and over.

The main instruction for use is to use only water!  The reason the cloths work so well is all those microscopic fibers grab everything on the surface and pick it up into the cloth.  If you were to use any kind of soap or cleaning product, it would make the cloth slip along the surface instead of being able to grab everything, so it wouldn’t work as well!  Plus, if soap gets deep into the fibers and doesn’t get rinsed out properly, it will block the BacLock self-purifying action and your cloths could get stinky.

Always follow the correct washing instructions.

After each use, scrub the cloth against itself under running water, rinse well, wring out, and hang to dry.  (Isn’t that EASY??)

About once a week, machine wash and dry, hot water is best, with three simple rules:

  1. No bleach
  2. No fabric softener
  3. No linty fabrics

The laundry detergent that will keep the cloths at their best for years to come is our Norwex Ultra Power Plus, now certified for High Efficiency machines! (It still works great in conventional machines also.)

If you ever end up with cloths that aren’t smelling clean, the best remedy is to soak them overnight in hot water and Norwex laundry detergent.  Then wash as normal.

If your cloths have gotten fabric softener on them, or you have hard water and minerals are building up in the cloths, you can choose to boil the cloths in a pot of hot water with some vinegar to help dissolve what’s trapped in the fibers.

Last but not least, contact me for troubleshooting help!!

How Do I Use My Norwex Cloths?

Posted on September 5, 2014

It was so amazing!  This woman cleaned off ALL this crusty dog slobber so quickly and the sliding glass door looked gorgeous!  So of course I bought the Norwex cloths, and now they just arrived and…  how do I use them again??

Clean Window

(No, she didn’t make the dog disappear.)

Whatever you do, DON’T leave your amazing Norwex cloths sitting in the bag on your counter because you can’t remember how to use them!

Here are step-by-step instructions for how to use and how to clean Norwex cloths:

norwex basic pack1.  Start with the Enviro cloth (check the tag in the corner for which cloth is which). Get it wet, and wring it out.

2.  Fold the Enviro cloth in half, then in half again, so it’s a square.  Hold it flat in your hand, so all those millions of tiny fibers can grab all the gunk off your surface.

3.  Find the dirtiest spot in your kitchen and scrub it clean using just the Enviro cloth and water!  Try your stove hood, or on top of the refrigerator, or the wall beside your stove.  When one side is dirty, refold the cloth another way so you have a clean square.

4.  When you’ve used all the clean surfaces of your cloth, or when you finish the job, take it to the sink and under running water, scrub the cloth against itself.  If it’s really greasy and dirty, you can use just a little dab of dish soap to help release the grease.  Rinse well.

5.  Now take both cloths into a bathroom that needs to be cleaned.  Start with the mirror – wipe with the damp Enviro cloth first to get rid of all the toothpaste and hairspray.  Then wipe with the Polish/Window cloth.  Doesn’t it look gorgeous?

6.  Do the same thing to your faucet – damp Enviro first, then wipe with the Polish cloth.  Wow!  You’re an AMAZING housekeeper!!!

7.  Wipe the rest of the countertop and sink with the damp Enviro cloth.  Wasn’t that easy?  And truly, that surface is probably cleaner than it’s ever been, with no chemical residue left behind!

8.  Scrub out the Enviro cloth again under running water, wring it out, and hang it up to dry until you need to use it again.  The BacLock silver agent is self-purifying the cloth as it dries!

9.  Sit down and be amazed by how easily and effectively you can clean now!

10.  Once a week, or more often if heavily soiled, wash your cloths in your machine in hot water with three simple rules:

  • no bleach
  • no fabric softener (NOT liquid or dryer sheets)
  • low lint (wash with sheets or jeans, NOT cotton towels)

A laundry detergent without fillers or fragrance is best.  I love our Norwex Ultra Power Plus detergent!

SO EASY! Norwex cloths have a two year warranty, so you will save so much money not having to go down that cleaning aisle in the grocery store again!

Any questions?

Can you really make money working from home?

Posted on September 3, 2014

I’ll be honest with you here.  I never thought anyone could make more than a little play money working any business with home parties.

Portrait of tired young business woman at the office

I was wrong!  Hooray!!!

I started doing Norwex parties just because the Enviro cloth knocked my socks with what it could do on the greasy walls around my stove.  I decided everyone needed to know about this magical new way to clean!

I had been searching for alternatives to cleaning chemicals based on my research into suspected causes of auto-immune diseases like lupus, celiac disease, type 1 diabetes, and asthma.  (We have a little bit of everything in our family and I wanted to know how to give my kids the best shot possible at avoiding them!)  But the natural cleaners I had tried were a lot more work.  And like any busy mom, I’d rather things be quick!  So when I scrubbed every nook and cranny of my kitchen that night (WAY out of character for me) because it was so unbelievably easy, I knew I had to share.

Because of the growing awareness of the dangers of chemicals, and because I discovered I love mentoring others to succeed beyond their wildest dreams, after three years in business I had passed up my pre-mom full-time income as an E-Learning Consultant.

Do you wish you could test-drive a business like this with no risk and no obligation?  Your wish is granted!  In September only, Norwex is offering a Join For Free special. Get a mini starter kit and full consultant privileges, including the opportunity to earn all consultant incentives, for only $7.99 shipping!  No obligations or requirements!  Join a team known for building leaders and encouraging each other.  At the least, you’ll be able to help friends and family make their homes a safer haven.  At most, you could just find yourself living the dream of setting your own schedule, working from home, and answering to no one but yourself!

Car Detailing So Easy a Child Can Do It!

Posted on August 11, 2014

Carpooling to the Norwex national conference is as good an excuse as any to get the car cleaned up inside and out! My children helped because they like being a part of my success.  (And I rewarded them with a trip to the donut shop…)Cleaning the Car

Our only tools were a handheld vacuum and the Norwex basic cloths with water!

Windows so clear you think you’re in a convertible? Norwex Enviro cloth and water to clean and Window Cloth to polish!

Cleaning up the dashboard? Norwex Enviro cloth and water.

Stains on the seats? Norwex Enviro cloth and water.

Old, dried strawberry smoothie that I didn’t know had spilled on the floor in the back seat? You guessed it! Norwex Enviro cloth and water.  Can you believe it??

Seriously miraculous!  Yes of course I’m happy we didn’t have to use any chemicals, but the bottom line is, it was so EASY!

For the outside, I could have gotten out the hose and my Norwex car wash mitt but instead I chose to drive through a gas station car wash, use the cheapest wash, drive home and then polish it with the Norwex car cloth. Gorgeously shiny, streak-free, and because I removed all soap residue with the car cloth, dust won’t stick to it so it will stay cleaner longer!

I’ve even heard customers say they’ve washed their car in the garage in the middle of winter with just a bucket of water, the Norwex car wash mitt, and a car cloth.  Because you’re not using any soap, you don’t need to rinse with a hose, and it dries so quickly with the car cloth.

Do you love having a clean car?
