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.

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!

Need allergy relief? Try our mattress cleaner!

First of all, I’ve been *so* excited to no longer have dry, itchy eyes every morning! This mattress spray made an almost immediate difference for me and my husband. But what is even more exciting is the consistent feedback I receive from customers! One customer reported that the product significantly decreased her husband’s snoring. Another found her general allergy symptoms to be much less. Another noticed less asthma attacks in her son (which had typically happened at night). The stories just continue to pour in. This is definitely a product that you need to try! Here’s a little excerpt written by Sonia Michalyshen about our mattress cleaner:

NORWEX MATTRESS CLEANER
by Sonia Michalyshen

Norwex has introduced a new product for the elimination and removal of all organic wastes inside mattresses, pillows, cushions and stuffed animals.

Nothing personal, but your house is crawling with all kinds of critters. There are flakes of animal skin floating around as well. A recent article in the Winnipeg Free Press on Allergies read “stop sneezing and ah-attack dust mites and pet dander”!

You need a microscope to actually see these dust mites and pet dander, but people know they are there – and they have the stuffy noses and itchy eyes to prove it. As hibernation season approaches these critters are forced indoors to join the already thousand or so subspecies that inhabit your home. Research shows that even if you do not have a pet, all homes contain pet dander. Mouse allergens also exist in 82% of homes.

Your face is in your pillow 7-8 hours daily and every time you plunk your head down on a pillow, a little cloud of dust mites and their dead bodies and drippings come up and you breathe them in! Pillows weigh 10% more a year after purchase due to dust mites.

I am proud to introduce you to The Mattress Cleaner by Norwex. Because this product has micro-organisms & enzymes in the solution, it has the ability to continue working until all organic material or waste is removed. The solution must be sprayed directly on the mattress with 10-15 sprays of the solution used for a queen size bed. It sells for $35.99 and should be used every 2-6 months.

mattress-cleanerThe good news is: even if you make minor changes to housekeeping, like dusting with a Norwex dusting mitt, which *collects* the dust rather then re-arranges it, those with allergies suffer less. The bad news is: most people don’t make the changes because they don’t know about our products. So please tell your friends about Norwex Products.

The Buzz about Norwex

EnvirosNearly everyday I hear another rave review about the Norwex products!  Are you curious what all the fuss is about?  Give me a call and let us get some of these incredible products into your hands.  You’ll soon understand.  :)  Or better yet, let me come do a party in the comfort of your living room!  These products are SO worth sharing, and as an added bonus, you’ll earn a bunch of free products!
I found Sonya’s presentation very enjoyable and informative. I have always felt that we should do all we can to protect our environment and not waste resources; consequently, I have tried to avoid using throw-away products like paper towels, paper napkins, Swiffers, etc.  At the party I bought the superior mop starter package, the enviro cloth, the window cloth, and the dust mitt, thinking that I would probably keep my house cleaner if I had products to use that were more convenient than the wet mop, dust rag, etc. that I had always used, but not really expecting anything special.
I was amazed when I tried these products. When I began dusting with the dust mitt, not only did it pick up the dust better than my oiled dust cloth, but I noticed it dragging a bit so I applied a little more pressure and it even removed the fingerprints that were normally left behind when I dusted.
Then I tried cleaning off the stove with the dampened enviro cloth.  The handle of my oven door had a build-up of gunk on it that I had tried and tried to get off.  Nothing I tried would remove it, but the enviro cloth got it off – every bit of it.  I was amazed.
Not only do these products clean without contributing to the waste that is building up around our country everywhere, but they do an incredible job! Thanks!

“I received my Norwex cloths and cleaned my front windows and front door as soon as I could and it is amazing.  I don’t think they’ve ever been that clean before and we’ve lived here for 11 1/2 years.  My husband is quite impressed.”
