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!

“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!

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!
