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!

Scale – Not the Weighing Kind

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.

Not Just For Kids

Norwex has these kid’s towels that are really awesome…awesome because kids WANT to dry their hands on these towels! They are called Pet to dry towels and that’s just what kids do. Super-soft too!

You know how your pre-schoolers don’t want to take time to properly use a towel to dry their hands? That is a problem no more! These towels attach to your towel rack/ring and all the kids have to do is run their hands down the critter and voilà – DRY!

Here is a video so you can see the Pet to Dry in action! You can get a Grey Kitten, Brown Bear, Pink Pig and Yellow Tiger.

And, not to be left out – I know plenty of grown-ups who like these towels too, and hang them in their bathrooms!
