Norwex Products I Restock Regularly

Posted on June 25, 2018 Norwex products we restock often in our home

Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all the products Norwex comes out with that can make your home safer, so here’s a handy list of the products we regularly restock in our home!

Laundry detergent – powder or liquid
Both detergents are SO concentrated they’re very cost-effective, but the best part is they’re hypo-allergenic and biodegradable, so good for our skin AND for the planet. I use both types and probably have a slight preference for the powder.

Stain Remover and Odor Eliminator also both sit on my washing machine for use as needed. The odor eliminator is especially good for when you forget a load of wet laundry in the machine… I run a rinse cycle with a capful of OE then the clothes are good to go! :-)

Super Jet Dishwasher Detergent
Not everyone loves the Super Jet, depending on how hard your water is. We have a water softener and we love it! Just a half tablespoon per load.

Fresh Produce Wash
We use this for washing anything small that you wouldn’t wash with the Veggie Scrub Cloth, so grapes, strawberries, lettuce, etc. It’s crazy what comes off! Glad we’re not eating all that crud.

Water Filtration Pitcher replacement filters
My kids love the taste of Norwex water, and I love that they’re getting filtered water with magnesium and other minerals put back in!

Dishwashing Liquid – have you tried the newest formulation, made in our very own Manufacturing Institute in Dallas?

Mattress Cleaner – it lasts a long time, but I take it in a sample size bottle everywhere I travel, so that uses it up a little faster. Since I have asthma, we use it regularly on mattresses, pillows (including throw pillows), quilts, stuffed animals, and upholstered furniture.

I use the Crystal Deodorant, which seems to last forever, but my kids and husband use our Deodorant Stick, so that’s a common thing on my reorder list.

We have our Peppermint Foaming Hand Wash in both bathrooms and the kitchen sink, so that Refill is a common reorder. Pro tip: dilute it a little when you refill your pump sprayers, then the pumps don’t stick. I fill about 2/3 full then top it off with water.

My skin is pretty low maintenance in the summer, so I just make sure we’re stocked with Aloe Face and Neck Gel – my favorite light summer moisturizer. (And it’s also amazing on sunburns!) My husband uses Rescue Gel on his legs after biking, and of course I always keep Hand Cleaner in my purse for when you just have to dig into the Pringles on the way home from Target…

What do you need to restock?

Some things last forever so it doesn’t seem like we ever need to reorder, like Cleaning Paste and Oven & Grill Cleaner (of course, I RARELY clean the oven…). I think I’m still on my first bottle of Wrinkle Release Spray, too, even though I use it regularly. I pull clean clothes out of the dryer, spray, and hang them in my closet. By the time I’m ready to wear, they’re wrinkle-free! (Hooray for no ironing!!) And those Sanira toilet system refills last forever, too!!

I don’t use the Bathroom Cleaner or Descaler because we’re able to keep things clean with just the Bathroom Scrub Mitt and water. Maybe that’s because of our water softener system? And we don’t use a lot of Hand Cream or Body Lotion or Lip Balm in the summer. I think that’s because by showering with just Body Cloths and water, we don’t have soap drying out our skin!

Did I leave out any of your favorites?

Help Your Dust Mite Allergy the Easy Way

Posted on September 1, 2014

As I was following a rabbit trail on Pinterest (don’t pretend you don’t know what I’m talking about!) I came across this article on how to clean your mattress.

Now I completely agree about our pillows and mattresses being “the ideal breeding ground for bacteria and dust mites.”  But thank goodness there’s an easier way than dragging it outside and beating on it!

Dust Mites

Norwex Mattress Cleaner is an enzyme spray that “digests” the allergens in our beds, just like enzymes in our body digest our food.  Dead skin cells are what dust mites eat.  You probably didn’t WANT to know that you shed enough skin cells every day to feed a million dust mites.  But the most harmful allergen found in our beds is the, uh, after-effect of dust mites eating.  You know, their poop!  Did you know that’s mostly what we react to when we’re allergic to dust mites?

Preventing dust mites is tricky.  Lots of us have tried special covers on our pillows and mattresses, but the New York Times reported a study showing that those aren’t as effective as we would like. Norwex Mattress Cleaner

Norwex Mattress cleaner is NOT a pesticide.  It’s not a chemical that kills anything.  Because we wouldn’t want to breathe in a toxic chemical all night any more than we want to breathe in dust mite poop!  It simply works its way through your mattress “eating” away the allergens, converting them to carbon dioxide and water.

It’s not just for mattresses!  Spray on pillows, comforters, stuffed animals, upholstered furniture, vehicle seats, and pet beds.

A light mist will do it – about two sprays per pillow, and 12-15 sprays on a king-size bed.  Allow to dry before putting on clean sheets.  For severe allergies, spray once a month.  Otherwise every 3-4 months is fine.  So one bottle lasts a year or more!

The most amazing testimonials I’ve received from my Norwex customers are about this product. Husbands who’ve stopped snoring, kids who’ve stopped coughing at night, moms who are able to wear contacts because their eyes aren’t dry and itchy, people who don’t sneeze multiple times every morning anymore.  I personally ALWAYS travel with a samples-size spray bottle of mattress cleaner for hotel room beds!  Who do you know who needs some desperately?
