A client recently contacted me about her Norwex bath towels. She LOVES them, and takes really good care of them, so they should last her for years. Lately tho they don’t smell so clean, and she reached out to ask for advice. I suggested a deep clean of her towels and in the telling I realized that adding the Microfiber Laundry Booster to her Norwex cleaning collection could help with this as well…so I suggested it, and now I’m suggesting it to you as well.
The Microfiber Laundry Booster is new to Norwex in the last few years and I use it regularly; both as a booster by adding a scoop to the load, and as an additive to Ultra Power Plus powder. “What the what?!!”, you ask. Here are the two ways I use this fabulous product and the third Norwex recommendation to use in deep cleaning…
When I open a new bag of Ultra Power Plus powder detergent I add 1/4 to 1/2 cup to the bag, seal it back up and shake. I like the extra boost that gives me every time I wash a load.
If I’m washing a particularly dirty, smelly, and/or grimy load I add a scoop to the washer, right along with my powder or liquid Norwex laundry detergent. (Reminder: always add detergent first if you don’t have a detergent dispenser.)
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.

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.
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.
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…
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.
