Norwex Your Bathroom!

Bathrooms!  Your favorite room to clean, right?  How can you do it without annihilating yourself with harmful fumes and chemicals?

Enter Norwex!!  I want to share some Norwex Bathroom Cleaning Tips!

What you’ll need:
1 Enviro Cloth
1 Polishing Cloth
1 Pink Bathroom Scrub Mitt
1 Sanira Toilet System
1 Blue Diamond All-Purpose BR Cleaner (opt.)

If hard water is part of your bathroom-cleaning-challenge, then add:
1 Norwex Descaler
1 toilet pumice stone

And if you prefer NOT to clean floors on your hands and knees, then you’ll be thrilled with our:
1 Norwex Large Superior Mop System
1 Rubber Brush

OK, ready?    With Norwex we primarily clean with just water and a a Norwex Antibac* Enviro Cloth!  But in the bathroom, you’ll also want to have a couple of our specialty cleaners on hand!

First rule of thumb: clean cleanest (i.e. mirror) to dirtiest (i.e. toilet).  So first clean the mirror (be sure to use the dry Norwex Window Cloth to polish up the mirror and anything else that shines immediately after deep cleaning it with the Enviro!) Then on to the sink, faucet, vanity with a damp Enviro cloth.  Once you’ve done this deep cleaning around the sink, you can clean any additional areas before finishing up wiping down the toilet.   (At our house, the yellow Enviros have a very special job… cleaning up after 4 adorable little guys around the toilet!!  If you’ve raised boys, you may know why we chose yellow… sometimes aim comes secondary to distractions.  LOL)

Now obviously, you won’t want to clean *inside* your toilet with an Enviro cloth- so that’s where the Sanira Toilet System comes in!  Read my post HERE for more details on the Sanira.  It will leave your toilet smelling fresh, but not “chemical”.  For a bit deeper clean, first pour in a half-gallon of water to lower the toilet bowl water level.  Directly apply either the Sanira solution, the Blue Diamond Bathroom Cleaner, or spray with Descaler- let set 5-10 minutes, and then finish cleaning with the Sanira brush (or a toilet pumice stone combined with Descaler  can be especially helpful for getting rid of the mysterious toilet ring!)

OK- so what about the shower/ tub?  The pink Bathroom Scrub Mitt is perfect to hang inside your shower for a quick wipe-down after a shower.  And it does amazing things when used with just water!!  But many or our customers are loving the Blue Diamond cleaner in combination with the Bathroom Scrub Mitt for shining and cleaning the shower.  If you have more hard water, you’ll want to consider the Descaler.

And the wrap up with a quick mopping with our amazing Norwex mop system!  It makes floor cleaning SO easy.  And we are loving the new Norwex Tile Mop Pad (used wet on tile and vinyl)!!  The mop is nice sized to cover the area quickly, yet it maneuvers easily beside and behind most toilets!!  You’ll love it!!

So, it’s hard to put it into words, but believe me, you’ll have your bathroom deep cleaned faster than ever before!!  Oh, and one more quick tip before I sign off:  if the toilet area is getting a bit stinky… try spraying our Norwex Mattress Cleaner around the area.  The enzymes do a wonderful job of “cleaning up”!  :)

New Norwex Blue Diamond All-Purpose Bathroom Cleaner!

We recently returned from our annual USA Norwex Conference in Minneapolis, MN, and had an amazing conference!

I want to introduce you to some of our new Fall 2012 Products… starting with our brand new “Blue Diamond” bathroom all-purpose cleaner!  This product is really made for those people who know that they truly can clean their bathroom with just their Bathroom Scrub Mitt, Enviro Cloth, Window Cloth and Norwex Mop and WATER…. but still find themselves wishing for a safe bathroom cleaner for the tough jobs like the toilet, around the faucet, and the shower!

Take a minute to watch this clip from Norwex that explains Blue Diamond.

One thing I love about the Blue Diamond is that you may apply it full-strength as a gel (nice in the toilet basin, for instance, or around a faucet) or you can dilute it 9:1 with water, and use it as a spray instead.   A powerful cleaner… I can’t wait to hear how you like it!  Once you’ve used it, feel free to post your feedback in the comments section!

To order your bottle of Blue Diamond, click here, register at my shopping site, and order anytime you need- it will be shipped right to your doorstep.  I *highly* recommend using this fantastic cleaner along with our Bathroom Scrub Mitt!  My customers love my recommended Norwex special bathroom cleaning package- call me if you’d like to get details on that! 

I can’t wait to connect with you to help you answer your cleaning challenges… naturally!

Make it a great day!

Cleaning up the shower! Norwex DeScaler!

Norwex DeScaler- fantastic for hard water build-up!!

Thanks to Suzanne K. in Port Jervis, New York, for sharing her cleaning experience with the Norwex DeScaler:

“Sonya, I must get back to you about the Descaler. I have to tell you – it is amazing. Being a clean freak, as soon as I got it, I used it. I think I told you the main reason I got it was because of my 12″ rain shower showerhead with about 100 holes it where the hard water would sit and leave spots and scale up.  I would clean it all the time but never could quite get it the way it should be. The descaler made it look better than it has since I purchased it. I then used it on my shower doors which we squeegee every time we shower much to my husband’s disdain… and they look better too.  I am so glad I purchased it.  I know my cleaning products and I am constantly vigilant about my things with the hard water that I have and I can tell you this is the best product I have used. I’m glad I found you.”

As you know from reading my past Norwex blog entries, I LOVE to hear how the products are working for my customers.  And if you really want to do it up right, take some before and after pictures to share!  :)   Click here to purchase DeScaler and Norwex cloths!

Sanira Toilet System

sanir_toiletThe Sanira Toilet System is great! I love that it doesn’t get all orange and yucky like typical toilet brushes. It actually looks very neat next to my toilets. The cleaning solution and the brush are produced from environmentally-friendly raw materials. The cleaning solution is vegetable-based with coconut oil and a naturally-occurring sugar surfactant. The brush doesn’t contain metal parts. Using only 3/4 teaspoon weekly (compared with 2T of traditional cleaners) the solution will last approximately 1 year! The Sanira solution is not poisonous nor corrosive. And it breaks down within 48 hours compared to other solutions that need at least 30 days!!   Might I add… I think the Sanira solution smells wonderful! :)  Diluted in some water, it’s a great way to freshen up the toilet area in the bathroom!

Here in Cedar Rapids, customers often mention the “pink ring” in the toilet, as well as the pink scum that accumulates in the shower.  In my experience, this system removes that from our toilets!  Yay!  :)  I must admit that toilets can present quite a cleaning challenge sometimes, and there are times when you’ll need to pull out “the big guns” when facing a particularly stubborn toilet task.  Some people have found that the DeScaler and toilet pumice stone work great on the more stubborn stains like hard water build-up.  First you will want to pour a gallon bucket of water quickly into your toilet.  This lowers the water level, allowing your cleaner more direct contact with the porcelain.  Then you can either apply the Sanira solution full-strength & let it set for a bit, or you can apply DeScaler and let set for 10 minutes before cleaning with Spirisponge or toilet pumice stone.  (As a side note:  porcelain scratches very easily, so you would not want to use a product such as our spirinetts on your toilet!  It will scratch off the porcelain.)   The Sanira brush is different from your standard toilet brush, and takes a bit of getting used to.  I have had a couple of customers say that it does not fit well down into the “toilet hole” in some older or smaller toilets.
