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.
Do you have mineral deposits, scale, on your sinks and showers? Faucets and water dispensers? How would you know? It’s that white crusty stuff that forms where water sits or drips.
You see the water we use is mostly taken from the ground and that means it has microscopic bits of dissolved stone, or ‘mineral deposits’. So when water sits on a surface or drips from a faucet, tiny bits of minerals are left behind and over time these build up and cause scale.
How do you remove the scale you ask? Norwex makes a fantabulous Descaler that works like magic!! See the before and after pictures? Aren’t they great? I can’t say enough good things about this product! I absolutely LOVE it!!
Remember the scale got on the surface over time, in layers; so when you use our descaler it might take a few applications to remove all the scale because you will be removing it in layers as well. When I initially use descaler on a surface I usually have to apply it a few times to get the build up off. Then I can use just enough as a ‘maintenance’ amount.
Do you need some? Shop for Norwex Descaler on my website.
It’s March, time to spring clean all around the house right? Well maybe not – I’d rather be outside enjoying the warm weather! One job I can get done really quick is cleaning my fireplace doors. I use a Norwex basic package, some water and Norwex Ultra Power Plus laundry detergent (UPP).
Spray bottle of UPP – Add about 1 teaspoon of UPP to an 8 oz. spray bottle, fill with water. Shake to dissolve.
Put a wet enviro cloth under the door to be cleaned, this will catch the drips.
Spray fireplace door with the spray bottle of UPP. Let it sit for about 2 minutes. (The creosote will start to run off the door when the liquid starts to work. This is where your enviro drip cloth comes in handy.)
Now take your enviro cloth and wipe the door clean.
You may have to repeat the process if your door is really dirty.
Use your Purple Polish (Window) Cloth to dry the door to a streak-free shine.
NOW – go take a break! You deserve it for being so smart!
Norwex sells a Rubber Brush – which by the way is AWESOME!! There are lots of uses for the Rubber Brush. I’ll list some here, but you may have some of your own. We’d love to hear what they are, so feel free to share in the comments.
Is your oven door dirty – on the inside? Like, between the glass? Well how the heck can you get that clean? Actually there is a method that is pretty simple. I’ll outline the steps here. Your job is to let us know how it went.
Make sure the oven is cold.
Now look at the bottom of the door, you might have to get on the floor. Notice the holes in the bottom of the door? You’re going to use these for access.
You’ll need a long device that fits in these holes. I suggest either the Norwex envirowand, or perhaps a ruler or a wire hanger straightened out.
You’ll also need a wet enviro cloth. You may want to also rubber band the enviro cloth to the long device – this is optional but can be helpful.
Now push the long device with the enviro cloth on the end into the window to clean in between the glass!
Do you know there are many cleaners and household items you buy that contain harmful chemicals? Even reducing some of these will help your family. And you can start today. Just commit to removing ONE of these items, because all progress starts with the first step.
Have you considered joining the Norwex family? What would you do with an extra $400-600 a month? Two average shows a month is all you’ll need! I’m extending you a personal invitation to consider this opportunity.
This month Norwex sweetened the starter kit for new consultants. ALL you have to do is sell $1000 in 90 days!Easy Peasy!! Norwex sends you the kit for $9.99 + sales tax, then your 90 days starts. (Normally you need to sell $2000 in 90 days.)
Maybe you need a few extra dollars to pay off a bill, or save for a dream vacation? Or maybe like me, you just want a FUN night away from all your other responsibilities once in a while?
How do you start your own Norwex small business?
Have your own show where you invite your social circle, and guess what? You’ll probably be halfway to your $1000 goal. In the meantime you’ll get the Norwex 35% discount.
Hold another show in 4-6 weeks and invite the folks who couldn’t make it to the first show – or maybe a friend will host a show for you to earn their own Norwex? An average Norwex show is just over $600. With these two shows you’d earn your kit in less than 60 days.
What if I don’t sell $1000 in 90 days? If you don’t earn $1000 in 90 days, no worries. After having only one average show you’ll make $210. That will pay for the kit, which is valued at OVER $250.
I’ve never done anything like this, is there training?
Yes! Lots of training available. PLUS – you get me to help you navigate this business. I’ll be there to help you along the way. If you work it – you’ll earn it – and you’ll have something to write home about! You can do this – lots of folks have done it before you, you’re not alone.
I have more questions.
Great! If you are interested I’d love to chat with you, answer any questions, and help you discover a side of yourself you never knew you had! No pressure, no obligation, just a chat over beverages. Contact me to meet. Or – join my team and start earning today!
I have a request of you as well; PLEASE stop using fabric softeners of any kind. They are literally a swill of chemicals, some of them known carcinogens. It’s hard for me to believe companies are allowed to sell them to consumers. So let’s educate each other. Tell your friends and loved ones to skip the softeners and save themselves!
How can you get your laundry soft and static free without chemical softeners you ask? Use Dryer Balls. They tumble in your dryer and even help dry your loads quicker, saving you money.
Norwex Wool Dryer Balls naturally soften with lanolin and are fully renewable.
