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!
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.
Do you have the Chenille Hand Towel? Don’cha love it?!! I know I do! It’s sooooo very soft. Plus convenient to hang and use – and it’s always where you need it! I keep one on the handle of my oven where it’s really convenient to give my hands a quick dry.
Put one on your bathroom towel rack. Hang one off a stroller when you take the kids for a walk. Convenient to dry messy hands.
