How Do I Use My Norwex Cloths?

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??

(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!

My Version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ice bucket challenge has done a great job of raising awareness about ALS. So when I was nominated for the challenge, I figured one more video of someone dumping ice water on her head might not accomplish much.  Instead, I started researching more about the suspected causes of ALS at places like the National Institute of Health and Mayo Clinic.

What I found was similar to when I was researching causes of Auto-immune disorders – our bodies are simply being exposed to too many toxic chemicals in our every day lives, and it can cause things to go haywire inside.

So here’s my version of the challenge, switching gears to start focusing on what we can do to PREVENT diseases like this. My number one tip for reducing toxins in your world is to stop using dryer sheets!  Here are 7 reasons why.

What’s your top tip for reducing toxins?

Car Detailing So Easy a Child Can Do It!

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?
