The fabulous Norwex toothbrush!

More Norwex Raves!  Nichole P. of Cedar Rapids, Iowa shares: “Love love love the Norwex toothbrushes and amazed with the difference in our dental hygiene/ mouth health.   Actually, there isn’t a single Norwex product I don’t love.”  Another customer recently shared that she’s noticed she no longer has “morning breath”.  Another reported improved gum health!  My husband says it makes his teeth feel like they’ve just been cleaned at the dentist!  I love getting your feedback, and I thank you for sharing your tips and product secrets that you discover along your Norwex journey!  Just one more thing that makes this job so rewarding!

silvertooth_smThe Norwex toothbrush really is fantastic!  The silver base means that your toothbrush “self-purifies” between brushings- which is huge since “regular” toothbrushes are a haven for bacteria!  I love that I can use one refill for 6 months, rather than needing to replace my entire toothbrush every 3 months (and after being sick with colds, etc.)  Be kind to our environment– don’t dispose unnecessary waste (i.e. toothbrush handles) into our landfills.  I have personally found that I need to use less toothpaste with the Norwex toothbrush.

Your dentist would recommend that you use the soft (and that’s what we personally use), but for those who prefer a firmer brush, the medium is firmer because of the microfiber bristles & does stand up a little longer (which makes sense, of course).  I’ve shared several of the “pros”, now I’d like to mention some possible “cons”:  one customer reported to me that she would like to see Norwex also make the toothbrush in a smaller size for those folks who have smaller mouths.  And personally, I’d like to see Norwex send each refill with a new cover to fit over the toothbrush head.  I love theses covers for traveling, and one of my little ones broke one of our covers.  So far, that’s all the “negatives” I have to share!  PLEASE NOTE: Norwex does NOT recommend using these toothbrushes for young children, as the refill could potentially be a choking risk.

I want to add a quick update to this post… I recently switched over to using the medium toothbrush because of it’s microfiber bristles… and I’m afraid that I like it even better than the soft!!  Now I know that most dentists do not approve of medium (which is why it took me so long to actually try the medium!), but ours is very soft IF you first run it under very warm/ hot water before brushing.  With that said, I was also very happy with the soft toothbrush, I just think that the medium seems to do an EVEN better job… and the bristles seem to hold up a bit better.   Either way, I think you’ll be thrilled with this toothbrush!

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.
