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!

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.

The incredible water-deposit-remover!

The Norwex DeScaler. descalerI’ve known how incredible this product is for making glass shower doors sparkle again (by removing lime build-up, etc.), but recently I was very excited when I was able to remove the build-up around the base of my faucet handles (especially the hot water side).  I’ve previously tried soaking it with vinegar-soaked paper towels, which sort of worked, but was a pain.  I was thrilled to see that by spraying the area, letting it set for a few minutes (while I went around spraying Descaler on the other places that I was going to clean) & then wiping it off with my Enviro cloth (followed by the window cloth for a streak-free shine!).  It looks like new again.  And I’m a happy lady.  :)

To clean the hard water spots off your glass shower door, spray DeScaler evenly over the glass.  Let set for 3-5 minutes.  Wipe off with your bathroom scrub mitt, followed by the dry window cloth.  Sparkly clean!

Any cons or downfalls of this product?  Well, this stuff does not smell the greatest (quite unlike the Sanira solution, which smells lovely!), but not terribly offensive.   The DeScaler used to be a brown, ugly color, but the new clear formula is fantastic!  If you let it dry on, you won’t be able to easily wipe it off except by spraying it down again… so make sure you don’t wait too long to wipe it off the surface. And on the subject of toilets… I’m told the DeScaler works well on lime build-up in toilets, as well.   People in our area complain of “the pink ring” in tubs and toilets.  I find that the Sanira toilet system solution does a great job getting rid of the it.  But at our house, we also have a bluish ring just at the water line that seems to have become part of the porcelain… I don’t know what this is from, but so far I’ve found nothing (toxic or otherwise) that will take it off.  I did have one customer who was trying to remove long-term hard water build-up from the textured side of her shower door, and reported that she wasn’t able to cut through it with the descaler.

So that’s my 2 cents on the DeScaler!  I’m still staring in amazement at my gunk-free faucets…
