Recently Norwex introduced the Counter Cloths. Use these as a replacement for the ‘pick-a-size’ paper towels is how the marketing team bills them. I use them for everything in the kitchen. I usually have two of them going at the same time. They fit nicely in my hand and are easy to hold, so that’s a bonus. By having two out at a time there is always one available no matter where I am in the kitchen. They have become a favorite of mine.
Every cloth is made of a combination of Norwex microfiber and at least 50% recycled plastic, but you’d never know it because they are very soft. They also contain BacLock so are self-purifying; I can use them for days and they never smell!
Norwex Counter Cloths are available in different color palettes, and if you want to store them or other Norwex in a cute way on your counter, check out our house-shaped Counter Cloth box. So fun!
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:
No fabric softener, dryer sheets or bleach.
No linty items in the load. (Wash all your Norwex together or with your bedsheets.)
Use a laundry detergent with no fillers, such as Norwex laundry detergents. Of course!
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.

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.
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).
Last fall Norwex introduced the Ergo-bend attachment for the mop handle. It adds some inches to the handle and allows you to clean under furniture without having to bend over. I’ve created a video for you to see exactly how it works and how I use it.
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.
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.
This month the Pet Mitt and Towel are on special. Save some money and keep your pets, and thus your home, clean!
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!!!
Norwex microfiber gets results. A picture is worth 1000 words…
This Dynamic Duo is on special in February – but available anytime! Use the Magnetic enviro cloth to clean – then attach it to your refrigerator or washer. There is a small magnet in one corner so I keep mine hanging in my kitchen where it’s really handy for the unexpected spills and messes on the floor. When I’m done I just hang it back on my fridge.
Use the Purple Polish cloth to do just that – polish!! What you ask? Polish anything to a streak-free shine; windows, mirrors, stainless appliances, granite counter tops, faucets. The list is endless.
Use the Magnetic Duo to clean and shine ALL the windows in your home.
I do not like microfiber, but I LOVE Norwex!! Why? How is Norwex different? There are technical and factual reasons which I’ll outline later in this post – but the real difference is that IT ACTUALLY CLEANS SURFACES! I can clean my patio doors, inside and out, in 5 minutes. And I clean the rest of my windows using just two Norwex cloths (read Basic Package) and water. It takes soooo little time to clean the windows, and when I’m done, no streaks! NO kidding!
Norwex microfiber is so incredibly micro – the fibers are at least 1/200th the width of a human hair! Yeah – that thin!! I don’t know anybody or anything who is that thin – do you? LOL
And notice how those fibers are woven? The fibers grab everything out of all the pores on the surfaces they touch.
The best part is all you need is water. You no longer have to shop for cleaning chemicals; no trips to the stores, no bringing home cleaners to spray all over and inhale. JUST WATER! That’s definitely the best part.
