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.


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).
