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

 

Deep Cleaning Demonstration

For those of you who like a visual I’ve created a Deep Cleaning Video so you can see the process. I borrowed two really dirty cloths from customers (thanks Kay and Andrea). Watch these cloths come clean right before your very eyes!!

Keep this in mind:

  • You can boil water on the stove and add the cloths to clean them. I don’t use this method because I would walk away and the cloths would end up permanently stuck to my pan! I prefer to boil the water and pour it into a bowl or sink.
  • Remember also that the gunk in your cloths builds up over time, in layers. To remove all that gunk you will likewise have to soak your cloths multiple times, each soak will remove more layered gunk.
  • Stains do not affect the working power of your microfiber – they are just stains. This will happen when you use your cloths for cleaning. When you are done deep cleaning there may still be stains. Don’t panic. Just launder and use.

Here are the written Deep Clean Instructions from an earlier post.

 

Fur Babies – The Rest of the Family

Many of us have fur babies of one kind or another; dogs, cats, gerbils, bunnies, the list could go on and on. How many of you want, no NEED, to keep them clean as they navigate outside and throughout your house?

Norwex makes it easy with the Pet Mitt and Towel. You can easily wipe wet bellies and paws after a walk, or dry your pets after a bath. And that Pet Mitt, made of Norwex fantastic microfiber, REALLY pulls the dirt out of a furry coat.

Care and Feeding of your Norwex

There’s not a lot to it. All you need to do is properly wash and dry your microfiber when it gets dirty. Use Norwex Laundry Detergent for best results, but that isn’t necessary.

  1. No bleach
  2. No fabric softeners or dryer sheets

That’s it! Simple.

Q. How often should you wash your Norwex?
A. Wash when it gets dirty. If you use it regularly wash every 1-2 weeks. Or if you prefer wash it every time you use it.

Norwex microfiber is good for 500 washings, so you can  “Keep It Clean” however you prefer.

When you spend your hard-earned dollars on a product, you want it to work right? I get it – I’m the same way. I will tell you I was not too thrilled that my first purchase of Norwex was going to cost me over $30. I mean, how could those cloths do any better job than what I was getting from my recycled rags I was using at home? BOY was I wrong!!!
