polka dot headshots (7 of 14)…into cyberspace! You’ll find me all over the web. I hope you’ll link up wherever you to see all the cleaning hacks and save yourself time, money, but mostly YOUR HEALTH!

No need for any chemicals of concern anymore. We’re wiser than a generation ago, when they thought cleaning products were great. They’re not! Water and microfiber and a few non-toxic cleaners for bigger jobs (that are not tested on animals and biodegradable) is all we need!

YAY Norwex!

Laundering Your Norwex

Lots of questions about this lately. And I hear some interesting stories about how people keep their Norwex clean. It really is simple though, just wash in the washer and dry in the dryer. But like all your favorite items there are a few things you’ll want to pay attention to in keeping your Norwex in tip-top shape!

Four Simple Rules:

  1. No fabric softener, dryer sheets or bleach.
  2. No linty items in the load. (Wash all your Norwex together or with your bedsheets.)
  3. Use a laundry detergent with no fillers, such as Norwex laundry detergents. Of course!
  4. Toss in the dryer.

See how easy that is?! Remember your Norwex microfiber has a 2-year warranty. So use it – and keep using it. Wash, rinse, repeat.

BacLock – What is it?

At my shows and demonstrations I introduce the concept of BacLock† to clients.

What is BacLock? Micro silver providing antibacterial protection to our Norwex cloths.

BacLock

I explain it like this; the Norwex cloth cleans the surface, the BacLock cleans the cloth. When you clean with a wet Norwex cloth you can be certain you are removing almost every single bit of gunk and grime from the surface, the microfiber locks the dirt in the cloth. When you rinse the cloth most of the dirt goes down the drain. Anything that remains is acted on by the micro silver, a natural antibacterial agent.

“From the 2017 Norwex Fall Catalog p.6;
“…Micro silver in the wet cloth self-cleanses within 24 hours to drastically reduce mold, fungi and bacterial odor. Your cloths and towels stay cleaner and fresher, longer.”

Do you still have to launder your cloths? Of course. But probably less frequently. See Norwex FAQs for laundering tips (see the Microfiber section).

† BacLock is a Norwex trademark

 

New in the Fall of 2016

Watch this video to learn more about our Essential Oils, the Camouflage Optic Scarf, and the Norwex Cutting Board.

I Love to use the Essential Oils on my dryer balls, it gives my laundry a fresh scent! The cutting board is now an essential item in my kitchen. I use mine ALL THE TIME! The best part is you are not cutting into a plastic board so you are not ingesting plastic. Plus my cutting board still has no cut marks in it after 10 months of use!

And of course Norwex finally came out with an Optic Scarf for the guys! Although plenty of the ladies love it too. It is green camouflage and on a carabiner clip. Nice!

 

Lose the Paper Towels

It may seem hard to do in our ‘throw-away’ society, but you really can stop using paper towels in your kitchen. I have greatly cut back on my paper towel use. I never did like to use them much, probably because I’m frugal and hated throwing the towel out after just one use!

Did you know…
…paper towels are made with chlorine, which releases harmful chemicals into the air and onto your food?
…40% of the US landfills are paper trash?
…paper products that have ANY food products, grease or body fluids can not be recycled?
…3000 tons of paper towel waste are created every single day?

I use the Norwex kitchen towel and kitchen cloth set instead. Norwex microfiber holds 8 times its weight and cleans up any kind of dirt or spill in your kitchen. I use the kitchen towel to dry my hands and dishes. The towel dries quickly and can go a long time between laundering.

Both the Norwex kitchen towel and kitchen cloth contain micro silver so they self-purify. Use Norwex Kitchen Set for days in your kitchen with no musty smell. And…they are a Customer Special for April!
