Swiss Apple Norwex Skin Care is HERE!!!

Norwex-Naturally-Timeless-Day-CreamWow, we just returned from the amazing US Norwex conference, and I am overflowing with things to share with you!  There are so many great new products, but I want to devote this post to one of my absolute favorites… the “Naturally Timeless” cutting-edge skin care technology!!!  An Apple a Day…

We know how important it is to radically reduce the chemicals that are being used in homes all across America, across the world..  We understand what a difference that can make!

Norwex-Naturally-Timeless-Face-Serum

But are we thinking about what products we are rubbing on our skin… the largest organ in our body??  The newest Norwex skin care lines are dedicated to helping us take better care of our skin.  In skin care, it’s not only what magical ingredients are IN the formulation, but perhaps even more importantly, it’s the not-so-nice ingredients that are NOT in it!

I encourage you to give our new “Naturally Timeless” skin regimen a try!  Remember- we have a 60-day satisfaction guarantee!  If you don’t LOVE, love, love it, just return it with your receipt for a full refund.  And I’m convinced that you will fall in love, as well.  So far, I haven’t talked with anyone who does not absolutely love this skin care… how it feels on your skin… and even more importantly, how it makes our skin look!  Radiant!

The best part?  Skin care with this amazing technology can cost hundreds of dollars… but Norwex is offering them to us for just $59.99 each!

Make-up-removal-packageJust think how simple, yet effective, your skin care regimen can be!  Gently cleanse your face with the Make-up Removal Cloth.  Perhaps once a week, gently exfoliate with the Body Cloth.  After cleansing, apply Naturally Timeless Firming Face Serum around, being very gentle around the eye area.  Then follow with the Naturally Timeless Day Cream and the apply makeup as usual.  So SIMPLE.  So EFFECTIVE.  So NORWEX!!

Can stem cells from a rare Swiss Apple REALLY fight and even turn back the signs of aging & help lessen the appearance of age spots & fine lines?  I encourage you to try it for yourself!!  I can’t wait to hear how you love it!

A Swiss apple a day keeps wrinkles at bay

The Uttwiler Spätlauber is little known and has been dying out

Image Caption: The Uttwiler Spätlauber is little known and has been dying out

A rare Swiss apple is being hailed in the cosmetic and fashion world as an exciting anti-ageing breakthrough – even Michelle Obama is rumoured to be a fan.

Used in creams and serums, stem cells from the Uttwiler Spätlauber apple are said to protect skin cell regeneration and so delay the onset of wrinkles. The discovery was made by a Swiss company.

The November edition of the United States Vogue magazine went as far as to call the variety “the super-apple”, and asked if the tree could be “the new fountain of youth”.

The Uttwiler Spätlauber, which was first recorded in the 18th century, comes from canton Thurgau, in northern Switzerland.

It is well known for its excellent storability; it can stay fresh looking for up to four months after being harvested, long after other varieties have become wrinkled.

However, it has not been widely cultivated of late because of its sour taste and the number of trees have dwindled.

Amazing longevity

Having collected some samples, Swiss researchers set to work and found that the answer mostly lay in the amazing longevity of the apple’s stem cells.  Humans have skin stem cells, which replenish and maintain the balance of cells within the skin tissue and regenerate tissue which has been damaged. But with age, the number of skin stem cells decreases and their ability to repair the skin becomes less efficient. The result is – with added environmental damage like UV rays – a loss of skin vitality, and inevitably, wrinkles…

 

Norwex Pre Wash on Chocolate

When I came out to the kitchen, I found my 3 year old’s shirt covered with chocolate.

Chocolate on shirtNow if it were a small stain, I’d first reach for a damp Enviro Cloth to simply wipe it off, but this job looked a bit too much for that.  So, looking at the positive side, I thought what a perfect challenge for the Norwex Pre Wash!

So first I sprayed all of the stains with the Norwex Prewash:  Chocolate stains presprayed with Norwex PreWash.  Then I let it set for about 10-20 minutes.  I then put it in a load of “mediums”, using 1 teaspoon of the Norwex Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent.  (We only use 1/2 -1 teaspoon of Norwex Laundry Detergent per load in our front-loading HE washing machine!  Then I forgot to check it for stains before throwing it into the dryer, so I was relieved when I took it out of the dryer and…. Ta-da!  Clean again!  .    Norwex Laundry DetergentNorwex Laundry Prespray

*Please note, if you have an HE washing machine still under warranty, the Norwex detergent is not yet labeled for HE washers, so using it may void your warranty.  Which isn’t something we want, so if you’re under warranty, we recommend using only HE labeled detergent if that’s what your warranty states.  Per our Norwex Customer Service Department:  “Our Laundry detergent does not state HE on the package but is compatible with HE machines as it has no fillers and is low sud-sing; we do not recommend people who’s washing machines are still under warranty to use our detergent for the reason we don’t want them to lose the warranty on their machines. After the warranty period people with HE machine can safely use our laundry detergent.”

OK- I just had to add one more thing to this post!  I am now an even bigger fan of our pre-treat & laundry detergent!!  You know how hard it is to get mud stains out of clothes, right?  Well, my 2 oldest came home from a bike ride with these horrendous mud stains on their shirts.  I presprayed them, let them set about 10 min, threw them in the sink with concentrated Norwex Laundry detergent to soak overnight.  (I wanted to be *sure* to save these shirts so I took double precautions!!) The next day, I laundered them as usual.  Take a look at the photos:    Mud after bike riding... P1110588 Can you believe it?  I’m a happy mama.  :)

Dishwashing 101!

Today as I was looking at my coffee mug with its coffee stains, I was recalling how those stains used to be difficult to get off.  So I decided to write a little note today about how we wash dishes with Norwex!  Most of us have an automatic dishwasher, but if you’re like us, there are some dishes that you still choose to do by hand.

The Norwex netted dish cloth is for cleaning your dishes with dish soap.  (I love the Norwex Dishwashing Liquid!  It’s low-sudsing (takes a bit of getting used to), and it does a GREAT job at getting dishes clean!) I guarantee that if you try to wipe your counters with this cloth you will leave puddles!  It’s not intended for that purpose.  It does provide great scrubbing power for washing dishes, dries quickly, and doesn’t provide germs an area to “set up house” & multiply! Norwex Netted Dish Cloth A very common error when using Norwex products is when our customers use our Kitchen Cloths to wash their dishes!  They then tell me that their Kitchen Cloths have gotten very smelly!  And how we all hate the “stinky dish cloth”!   But if you’ve been to one of my Norwex parties, you already know that I educate you in using TWO separate cloths in your kitchen.  One for washing dishes (the Norwex netted dish cloth) and one for wiping counters, tables, etc, using JUST WATER (either a Norwex Enviro Clothor Kitchen Cloth).  Yes, this takes a bit of getting used to, but it’s very exciting to discover a “stinky-dish-cloth-solution”!!

I must also mention the fantastic NorwexSpirinetts These are our amazing no-rust stainless-steel scrubbers that provide some serious & quick “elbow grease” for cleaning pots and pans!!  (Spirinetts should not be used on surfaces that scratch easily, such as Teflon or porcelain though!)  Not only do customers love these for cleaning pots & pans, but also for oven cleaning (AWESOME in combination with our Oven & Grill Cleaner!)! Fantastic Stainless-Steel Scrubbers for Pots & PansAnd if you’re a “sponge person”, you will likely love our Spirisponge.  It can be washed in the top rack of your dishwasher (as can the netted dish cloth & the spirinetts).  It is a more disposable item than our cloths, so you’ll occasionally need to replace it.  Some people even use this sponge to scrub their flat-top stove.  Norwex Sponge safe to use on Teflon & porcelain

The Norwex Kitchen Cloths (the ones that come in green, tan & yellow) are to be used with WATER ONLY to wipe and sanitize your counters and tables.  (They also serve as great little-hand “napkins” at our house!)  However, as I mentioned above, IF you decide to use this antibac kitchen cloth to wash your dishes, you will find that it quickly takes on an odor!!  The grease & dish soap residue will quickly coat the silver agent that’s embedded in the fibers, making it ineffective against germs.  If you have done this, try soaking your cloths in concentrated Norwex Laundry Detergent overnight and then boiling them in a kettle on the stovetop for about 12 minutes.  This should help them release all the soap build-up, grease, and so forth.  And then begin using them properly… with just water.  Here’s a helpful tip that one of my good customers passed on in regards to the Kitchen Cloths:  “After each use, I scrub it (didn’t do this before, as with a regular counter cloth, I didn’t…had to change my habits), then I let it dry over the oven door handle, each time, so it does not sit wet.  This way, I can go one week without a sour smell to the Norwex kitchen cloth.  Before it would sour in about 3 days…love the cloths!!”   So remember to scrub it well against itself under water, wring it out well, and hang it to dry!  This will make for less frequent washing and boiling necessary!  And remember,use them just for wiping counters and tables with JUST water!

So back to my coffee stains.  I simply took the white netted dish cloth with the Norwex dish soap and scrubbed out the cup.  Then I dried it with the Norwex Suede Envirotowel (mint green).  (It makes a great dish-drying towel, especially if you’re a flour-sack dish towel fan!)  And my mug was sparkling clean and stain-free again!    In the photo, you’ll see the Dish Liquid, Netted Dish Cloth & Envirotowel setting by the mug.  I love Norwex kitchen towels as a “hand towel” for wiping hands in the kitchen or bath!!  And I use the kitchen cloths to wipe counters (again, NOT for washing dishes!).

Coffee Mug with Stains Sparkling Clean Dishes!

I mentioned above how most of us have automatic dishwashers.  So I’ll take a moment to talk about the Norwex Dishwasher Detergent.  This one Norwex product that I get some mixed reviews on.  In certain homes/ water, it seems to work beautifully and customers are thrilled with it!  (I must add that most of my customers who love it also use the Norwex Magnet Ball in their dishwasher.)  And some people simply aren’t so crazy about it!  So it’s not a product I sell a lot of.  If you’re purchasing it, you have to remember that it does not have all the chemicals that you’ll find in many other detergents, so it is a safer choice, but also may not be quite as effective as those with bleach, etc.

Our Dishwasher Detergent is NOT recommended for dishwashers that have a stainless steel interior, as it may lead to discoloration of the stainless.  In our previous home, we had an older dishwasher that wasn’t fantastic, but after playing around a bit with the amount of Norwex detergent I was using, I eventually found an amount (used in combination with the Magnet Ball) that did the job.  And in fact, it also started to remove the yellow build-up that was all over the interior.  But in our new home, we have a dishwasher with a stainless interior, so I have not been using the Norwex Dishwasher Detergent.  But the Magnet Ball works great in all dishwashers!!  I have found it has really decreased my water spots on my glasses and I no longer need to use Jet Dry!  Wooo Hoo!!  :)  When you use the Magnet Ball, be sure you are DECREASING the amount of detergent you are putting in!  This is whether or not you’re using the Norwex Dishwasher Detergent.

When I used the recommended amount of non-Norwex dishwasher detergent in combination with my Magnet Ball, I began getting a bad soap buildup on my dishes!  But when I decreased the amount, they began coming out beautifully clean!  (The Magnet Ball is sort of a crazy little thing, but it can really save you a lot of money given that you cut your detergent use by about 1/2!!  It pays for itself very quickly.  It can also be used in a standard (non-HE) top-loading washing machine.  Again, cut your laundry detergent approximately by half.)

As always, I hope this has been helpful!  Please contact me if you have any questions or would like assistance with placing an order.  And if you want to help us share Norwex across the USA and help us get chemicals out of our kitchens, our homes, and our environment, while earning a very good income, I am very honored to help you start your very own Norwex business!

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!

More Customer Feedback!

I am just back from a fantastic trip to Florida where I met some more amazing people- I’m so excited to see the good news about Norwex spreading throughout the southern states.  We can use *your* help in bringing Norwex to America! I wanted to take a moment to share some feedback that I received from a customer yesterday.  (By the way, I always love to hear your review of the Norwex products… I have learned so much from my customers on ways that they have found these products to be fantastic!)

Susan M. from Asheville, North Carolina shared: “Hey, Sonya!  One of my cats promptly threw up a HUGE hairball last night and I used the blue Norwex cloth and it took the stain out of the carpet like magic.  I usually have to put oxyclean on the carpet but this time only water and the Norwex cloth got that nasty orangey stain right out and it didn’t wick back up through the carpet as it usually does.  I’m IMPRESSED!

Another customer shared a synopsis of how she felt as she was introduced to Norwex:
1) Skepticism (when she received an invite to a party)
2) Intrigue (as she did a bit of online research)
3) WOW!!! (after seeing Norwex products in action at her first Norwex party)

So many of us can completely relate to this!!  I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas season!  Thanks for reading.  Check back often!

How about that Dusting Mitt?!

What happened the last time you dusted?  Did you find that your dusting cloth seemed to simply redistribute the dust rather than REMOVING it?  Do you ever find yourself sneezing or starting an allergy or asthma attack when you dust?  Would you like to actually decrease how often you need to dust?

If you answered YES to these questions, DISCOVER the Norwex dusting mitt!    Norwex Dusting Mitt

When using the mitt, a static charge is created to attract  dust particles INTO the mitt, rather than simply relocating the dust temporarily, only to have it resettle 20 minutes later. Every time you dust with Norwex, the amount of dust that comes back gradually decreases, meaning that over time, you have to dust less!  What’s not to love about that!!?   Here are a few simple tips to try when dusting with your Norwex mitt:

• You do not need to apply pressure when using the Dusting Mitt.  The plush Norwex microfiber actually likes to have room to work.  However, many customers have reported that the mitt removes fingerprints with just a bit of pressure, but for general dusting, you don’t need the pressure!!

• Fold your mitt in half and rub the fibers against themselves before dusting (or use the Norwex rubber static brush!) to help create a stronger static charge to suck up the dust. (Or even better, use TWO Dust Mitts together and rub them together to get them charged up!)

•The Norwex Rubber Brush is fantastic for cleaning the dust into the garbage and extending the amount you can use the mitt before laundering.  It is a great way to “recharge” the static cling of the fibers, too!

•Energy Tip:  Dust the back of your fridge to allow it to run more efficiently.

• Some customers like to use the mitt slightly dampened for certain surfaces, and this is fine to do, as well.

• Great for dusting ceiling fan blades!  Who knows how they can get so dirty!!  But they seem to stay cleaner longer when cleaned with Norwex!

• If you have used a lot of furniture polish or Pledge in the past, the mitt will tend to pick up those residues over time.  If you start to notice that your mitt is not picking up as effectively, it may be time to boil it in a kettle of water for 12 minutes to let it release the oily residues that are hindering its static charge.  And remember my Norwex microfiber care tips:  no bleach, no fabric softener/ dryer sheets, no linty loads.

Enjoy a cleaner, greener, safer home!  Discover Norwex!  Buy Norwex online or call me at 605-271-1814.  We have a special deal to offer on the Enviro cloth, window cloth, dusting mitt trio!  Be sure to ask me for details!  And just $5.95 shipping in the US & Canada!

How do Norwex cloths work?

Do Norwex cloths do what we say they do?  And how do they work?

Norwex microfibers thoroughly clean MECHANICALLY by removing dust, grease & grime rather than chemically cleaning!!  This is incredibly exciting as we see more and more confirmation of the detriment chemical cleaners are having on our health and our environment!   Buy Norwex Cloths Online 24/7!

The Norwex fibers are microscopically small (think about 1/200-1/250th the size of one single human hair!!), and reach into the teeniest, tiniest crevices!  Then the Norwex microfiber traps and holds on to the dirt, grease, and grime, until you wash out the cloth.   Using JUST WATER and a Norwex cloth, you can clean your home using only water.  The density of these cloths are phenomenal- about 1700 MILES of microfiber in each Enviro Cloth!!

And the naturally antimicrobial silver agent embedded into the fibers of the Enviro cloth microfiber is just one more reason that makes Norwex amazing!   It inhibits the growth of microscopic organisms within the cloth.

I invite you to try Norwex for yourself!  Remember:  Norwex stands behind their incredible products with a 60 day satisfaction guarantee!  That’s how much we know you will love these products and that they WILL improve your quality of life!  Order your own set of Norwex cleaning cloths today!  You’ll be so glad you did!  I strive to provide excellent customer service and I’m happy to answer questions that you may have about our Norwex products.  Don’t hesitate to call:  605.271.1814.  You’re welcome to place your order by phone, as well.  We ship anywhere in the USA or Canada for just $5.95!!

Thanks for reading!  Happy Green & Safe Cleaning!

What would YOU rather wash your clothes in?

Laundry Detergent Experiment

OK… so I did this little laundry detergent experiment OVER A YEAR AGO!!  I took the detergent that most of my customers guess to be the most popular laundry detergent in America… the High Efficiency kind in both HE liquid and HE powder (the powder one also had fabric softener built in) and I put in the amount for a MEDIUM load in an HE washing machine.  I also put the amount of Norwex Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent that we use in our HE washer for a medium load (just 1/2 teaspoon!) and put them all in the same amount of water.  Almost 1 1/2 years later, you can see that 2 of them are still full of fillers (and of course fragrance, too), and  the liquid is full of blue dye. Notice the gummy stuff settling to the bottom of the jar with the liquid!  Yuck!  What is America washing their clothes with?!  Norwex laundry detergent does a fantastic job of cleaning… and it has no fillers, fragrance, or dyes!  I can tell you the “clear” laundry solution!  :)  For a standard (non-HE) washer, you’ll use one 2T scoop per load.  For a HE machine, 1/2 teaspoon if soft water (some people even fins 1/4 teaspoon to be enough with soft water!!) and about 1 teaspoon per load if hard water.  And don’t forget to replace your toxic fabric softener & dryer sheets with the Norwex Dryer Balls!  (Why do you think dryer sheets keep mice out of your RV?  Rodents are too smart to go near the stuff!)

Well, I think a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll just leave it at this today!

Lovin’ the Micropad!

Just wanted to share some customer feedback that I received today:  Jennifer C. from Bettendorf, Iowa (Quad Cities) writes:

Just wanted to let you know I received my order today.   I used the Micro Pad for the first time this evening after doing the pots and pans from dinner.  I wanted to let you know that I was so surprised to see how well it worked on my very stained sink!   The sink is white again!   I love it, love it, love it … and no chemicals!    I will definitely want to keep these on hand from now on!”

So, check out these pictures of my Norwex demo table that my boys decided to adopt as an art table! I had tried to wipe the crayon off with just an Enviro cloth, but it wasn’t budging. So I went and got my micropad… and Presto!Going...=>Going...=>Gone!Going….                                                                       Going…..                                                                    Gone!!
