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”!  :)

Cleaning your stove

Thanks to Jaclyn in Illinois for sharing these photos of her stove before and after being “Norwexed”!  She said she had tried multiple other products to try to clean the burner areas, but did not have success.

Jaclyn shared that she cleaned this with a WET Norwex spirinett & then cleaned with a Norwex cloth.  (Always use your spirinettes wet!)  I’m typically very cautious about using our spirinettes since they are powerful stainless steel scrubbers, and I recommend ALWAYS testing them on an inconspicuous area before proceeding.  They are, after all, stainless steel & should never be used on surfaces that scratch easily, such as porcelain.

These before and after pictures tell Jaclyn’s stove story the best:

Stove Before Norwex Stove After Norwex

Wow!  I always love to share before & after pictures like these, so if you have a “Norwex miracle”, please feel free to share!

If you are concerned about scratching a surface like your stove top, another fantastic cleaning option is the cleaning paste with either the Norwex Enviro cloth or the Norwex Kitchen Scrub cloth.  (Again, always recommended to test an inconspicuous area first.)

Doggie Nose Prints? Attention Pet Owners!

I was talking with some friends recently and they were exclaiming how well ourNorwex Enviro and Polishing cloths work at cleaning doggy or kitty nose prints off windows!  With JUST WATER!    I love when my hostesses leave me some nose prints to clean at their party, because it truly shows how these cloths can shine!!  Speaking of pet clean up, Norwex has incredible products for pet owners in general.  At one of the parties I did this past Spring, my hostess was kind enough to leave some muddy doggy footprints on her vinyl floor, and she was incredulous at how easily, quickly, & effortlessly our Norwex Superior Mop cleaned them up!  (That’s just one more wonderful thing about hosting a Norwex party at your home… what other party are you actually “required” to leave some dirt?!)  :)  And the mop leaves NO HARMFUL CHEMICAL RESIDUE that can make your pet sick!  My customers with pets are absolutely crazy about the Norwex Rubber Brush for removing pet hair from just about any fabric!  It’s amazing on pet beds, couches, or for the carpeting along baseboards where the vacuum doesn’t reach.  I’ve even had customers tell me that they’ve used it to remove pet hair from their clothing.  (And if you own our mop system, the Rubber Brush is also a must!)  The Antibac Microfiber Dusting Mitt does a fantastic job at picking up hair from a shedding cat or dog, as well.  And for those muddy and wet winter/ spring paws, the Antibac Pet Set is fantastic for cleaning paws when they come back into the house, as well as for bathing and thoroughly drying your pets (great for those cold months to minimize chill after a bath!)  Of course the damp Enviro cloth/dry Polishing cloth duo (a.k.a. “Burt & Ernie”) are essential for easily removing kitty paw prints with JUST water… effortlessly!   Oh, and let’s not forget about the Odor Eliminator and the amazing Carpet Stain Buster!  For pet owners, these are both essentials!  The Norwex Odor Eliminator is great for freshening pet areas, and the Carpet Stain Buster does an incredible job at removing pet urine, vomit, waste, and residual odors from carpet stains without leaving a residue.  And the Mattress Cleaner is great for removing pet (as well as human) dander from your mattress (along with other organic waste like dust mite feces!!)  Allergy sufferers find that Norwex products help significantly because they help to remove the irritating substances.  And if your pet drinks out of the toilet, you’ll be interested to know that our Sanira Toilet Brush Cleaning System will be a non-poisonous, non-corrosive cleaning solution- a much safer option for your pet!    Just one more reason to love Norwex…  :)  dog_cat Happy Pets, Happy Pet Owners!

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.”

Great cleaning ideas & tips!

As always, please call me if you have any questions, or if you have a specific cleaning challenge that you’d like help addressing!   Here are some more great ways to use your Norwex products.

  • Your Enviro cloths are excellent for removing stains from carpet and upholstery.  During my demos, I’ve been amazed at what has come off my hostesses’ carpet!  Go ahead…. try it!  Norwex also has a great Carpet Stain Buster if needed!
  • The Enviro microfiber cloths come in four colors- this allows you to “color-code” your house.  For instance, you can reserve red for “bathrooms”, green for “kitchen”, blue for “windows”, etc.
  • Your Norwex mop isn’t just for washing floors!  It’s a great way to clean your walls and ceilings- simply lock the head into place (so it doesn’t swivel, as it does when you use it on the floor) and “Voila”!  The superior mop pad does an excellent job removing dust from walls (Contractors love this mop for cleaning the dust off all the surfaces before selling their homes!)  (Please note that using the mop in this way may not work if you have rough or heavily textured walls or ceilings.)
  • Along the same lines as above, the mop, when equipped with mop brackets, allows you to place a window cloth on (over the dry mop pad), lock the head in place, and clean/polish hard-to-reach windows beautifully!  The mop brackets snap on, not slide on, and once they are on, you can simply leave them there.  They shouldn’t interfere with using your mop.
  • Be sure to “unlock” your mop head before going back to mopping your floor.
  • Your damp Enviro cloth & dry window (polishing) cloth team work wonderfully to to leave your granite countertops sparkling and streak-free and CLEAN… without any chemicals or cleaners needed!
  • The Norwex Rubber Brush is excellent for removing pet hair for home or car upholstery or carpet.  It’s also great to collect dust from those corners of carpeting that your vacuum can’t reach!

Stay tuned!!  More great tips and ideas to follow!

Happy Cleaning!
