New Norwex Bath Towel Colors!!

Our customers have been asking… and Norwex has heard us!  They have introduced two new bathroom towel color options- latte and teal!  Check them out here:

And they are also still available in the standard beige color.  I love the NEW Vintage Body Pack colors, too!  For those of you who have not yet discovered the amazing antibac* Norwex towels, call to order today!  Once you’ve switched over, you’ll not go back.  I love stepping out on our Bath Mat (it quickly absorbs any dampness from my feet), wrapping up my hair in the Large Bath Towel, and using the XL as a body wrap.  The hair turban is also a customer favorite for dramatically reducing dry time for your hair (and no more drips!)!  Purchase your Norwex here!

As long as we’re talking about our Body Line Antibac* Microfiber, I want to take a minute to say… I can’t imagine living without my Body Cloths to wash my face!  My new favorite is the Vintage colorsI’ve been using them for 3 years, and I can’t imagine going back to facial cleanser and makeup removers!  These leave my face feeling so clean!  For those of you with more sensitive skin (or for the eye area), you may prefer the Makeup Removal Cloth Set for removing your makeup, and the body cloths for the occasional deeper cleaning/ exfoliation.  IMPORTANT TIP:  When using the Body Cloths on your face, REMEMBER to leave PLENTY of moisture in the cloth. Do NOT wring it out tightly, and do NOT scrub.  These cloths are gently exfoliating on their own, and NO scrubbing is required!!!   This is important.  Just gently cleanse your face with a cloth that has lots of moisture left in it.  I say, “Just squeeze out the excess moisture so it’s not dripping”.  These cloths are amazing for travel (I actually love to use the Baby Body Cloths when traveling because they’re smaller, slightly thinner, and dry more quickly but the Body Cloths work, too!)   And, as we’re approaching Christmas, these packs make perfect stocking stuffers!!  For just 19.99, you get the 3-pak, and you can split it out into 3 stocking stuffer gifts!  More on great Norwex stocking stuffers to come… :0)

Shine and Clean with Norwex Cleaning Paste

cl_pasteOur Norwex Cleaning Paste is a fantastic non-toxic cleaner that provides mild, chemical-free abrasion to polish, sine, and clean.  Just today I was cleaning our basement laundry sink- which I’ve tried many times to clean, but hadn’t yet tried the Norwex Cleaning Paste, Kitchen Scrub Cloth, and Spirinetts.  Now let me tell you, this sink has been extremely well-used over the years!!  Paint.  Caulk.  Grime.  Hard-water build-up.  Not too pretty.  So, I’m going to input a photo of what I accomplished in a short time with the Cleaning Paste, Kitchen Scrub Cloth, and Spirinetts.  And around the faucet, I used the DeScaler to cut through some of the hard-water deposits.  basement laundry sink
It was an amazing improvement!  Now I need to go down and finish the other half.  :)

A bit more about the Norwex Cleaning Paste.   It is definitely one of our most popular cleaning products.  One of my favorite things is that  I can identify & pronounce all four of the ingredients:  Marble Flour, Chalk, Natural Soap, Traces of Coconut Oil.   The cleaning paste will replace your Ajax, Comet, SoftScrub, and other chemical abrasive cleaners.  It polishes, cleans, and protects!  It’s great to use on plastic, stainless steel, aluminum, porcelain, tile, painted surfaces, enamel, chrome, coffee pots, glassware and food storage products.  It is NOT recommended for cleaning brass, silver, and acrylic.  NOTE The cleaning paste is extremely gentle, but it is still mildly abrasive.  While it’s safe to use on most surfaces, as with all of our cleaning products, Norwex recommends you first test an inconspicuous area if you are concerned about the possibility of scratching.

The Cleaning Paste becomes a “paste” once you have rubbed your wet Enviro, Kitchen Cloth, Spirisponge (or whatever cloth you are using with it) on the compact “chunk” in the container.  It is not liquid or powder, but rather is hard and compact in the container.  I find that it lasts a *very* long time, making it not only a safe & effective cleaning option, but also a very economical choice ($28.99 for a canister that will last you a LONG time)!!   Once you have accumulated the product on  your cloth, clean & polish the surface.  Then collect any residual Cleaning Paste by going over it with an Enviro cloth and a Polishing Cloth to leave a streak-free, beautifully polished surface.

I find it’s great for built-up soap scum, rust stains, tile, and some hard water stains in bathrooms (although this is where the Norwex DeScaler really shines!!).  In the kitchen, I love mine to polish up stainless steel or white/ beige sinks and faucets.  I also have many customers who absolutely love it for their smooth-top stoves.  (To clean my flat-top stove, I use the Cleaning Paste with the Kitchen Scrub Cloth and it works great!)  PLEASE NOTE:   Although I have many customers who love the paste for their stovetops, Candi Bezte mentions below that it may be too abrasive for some of the new enamel or ceramic stove tops, so ALWAYS be sure to test a small inconspicuous area first!

Here’s what Candi Bezte writes about the cleaning paste:

“Spring” Cleaning Paste!

It really is amazing how well the Cleaning Paste works! It gets the worst scuffs/marks off fiberglass tubs, marks off vinyl flooring, or that permanent ink that mysteriously may get on the kitchen counter! It will take rust out of stainless steel sinks and off plastic dishwasher walls, and even remove permanent ink off white board.  It is fantastic for those “normal” cleaning  jobs such as getting the soap scum out of your tub or shower.  Considering you need to use so little…one container of Cleaning Paste really goes a long way! It is nice to use a cleaning product that is not a liquid (eliminating possibility of inhaling while using) – just a damp Envirocloth, a small dab of paste, and you’re good to go!

How does this amazing product work? It contains some soaps and a very small amount of sodium laureth sulphate combined with marble fl our and chalk (calcium carbonate) which result in a very slightly abrasive product that has the ability to also remove grease. The majority of the work is simply the result of very mild abrasion – similar to the Micro Pad. The paste basically functions like ultrasuperfine sandpaper, with a bit of soap added to it.

CAUTION: Since the Cleaning Paste is mildly abrasive, always test in an inconspicuous spot before using. Not recommended for use on acrylic surfaces, brushed stainless steel, the new enameled or ceramic stovetops or other delicate surfaces. The Cleaning Paste is a physical scrubber and is not intended to be an everyday use product; it is intended only for stains and marks that do NOT come off with regular soap and water or the Enviro and water!
