New 2010 Fall Products are Here!

New 2010 Fall Products are Here!

I’m excited to unveil the NEW 2010 Fall Products!  Children are our future!  We want them to learn safe, chemical-free ways of cleaning, as well as instilling an enjoyment of cleaning.  Well Norwex has once again came with the answer.  Give them their very own Norwex products so they can learn and love to “Norwex the house”!  The children mop is a favorite, to be sure, as well as the mitt that is sized just for little hands.  And the kid-friendly colors are great!  The kids back pack is the perfect place for them to carry “their” cleaning supplies, and also perfect for lunches or trips to the park.

The veggie and fruit scrub cloth is back by popular demand!  This cloth has been proven to remove some pretty nasty stuff from our fruits and vegetables.  It’s also great in conjunction with our Fresh Wash.  For certain produce (i.e. broccoli), you need the Fresh Wash.  This cloth helps remove the “bio film” from our fruits and veggies!

The Lint Mitt is perfect size for tucking in your purse and taking on travel.  It works great!

The Norwex Washing Net bag is great for storing clean Norwex cloths, as well as for collecting, laundering, and drying the soiled cloths.  Very sturdy and well made, this bag will make laundering your Norwex microfiber even easier!

Last but no least… the suede, antibac make-up removal cloths.  These are great for sensitive skin around the eye area (as well as for those of you with sensitive skin!).  Stains wash out more easily than the Body Pack Cloths due to the tight weave.  These are perfect for traveling, too!

Call or email me today if you have any questions about our new products.  And feel free to order online or via phone or email.  I look forward to assisting you!

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!

2009 New Fall Product: Bathroom Scrub Mitt

NEW Bathroom Scrub Mitt

This new Norwex product is getting rave reviews from my customers!  It has one side that is more scratchy, but safe to use on surfaces like flat-top stoves, porcelain, etc.  The other side of this mitt is a plush microfiber (not antibac microfiber in order to keep the price of this product affordable).  My customers have given me feedback that this is incredible for removing soap scum in the shower/ bath tub (with the rougher side) and wiping clean with the softer side.  For hard water build up, it works well in conjunction with the DeScaler; or for serious soap scum build up, use with the Cleaning Paste.   And feedback from my customers tells me that it’s not just for bathrooms!  🙂

As with the other Norwex microfiber, this product works wonderfully with JUST WATER for general cleaning (wet & wring out well & clean your whole bathroom!).  In fact, customers are telling me it’s perfect to clean down the shower right before or after their shower.  No toxic chemicals or fumes to inhale– JUST WATER!  And super effective.  When you’re finished using the mitt, just rinse & wring out well.   Hang to dry.   Launder weekly (see Microfiber Care Instructions).

You will still probably want to keep an Enviro and  polishing clothin your bathroom for mirrors and stainless steel.  And of course our Sanira toilet system for keeping the toilet clean and smelling fresh.  These products make bathroom cleaning a breeze!!

Happy Cleaning!
