Spotlight: The Norwex Carpet Stain Buster

The Norwex Carpet Stain Buster {I mean super, amazing, Save the Day Miracle Spray} is literally a lifesaver when it comes to carpets, rugs, and upholstery. 

Let me begin with - I have a toddler...

Like most toddlers, he really enjoys making messes. I am sure all toddler parents are familiar with the days that your loving little toddler makes messes faster than you can clean them up. I refer to these days as days the toddler wins. {Endearingly of course}

Well, Norwex's Carpet Stain Buster makes it so much faster - and frankly, less stressful wen you come across that mystery {or maybe not so mystery} stain. 

Quick, easy, and SAFE!

I spray the area with the cleaner. Then depending on the stain, use the EnviroCloth, or even the rubberbrush to vigorously rub the stain out and then let it dry. I cannot tell you how impressed I have been with this item! It is an enzyme based cleaner, so as the liquid dries it actually continues working away at the stain and breaks it down even further. An added bonus is that if my toddler decides to assist with clean-up, I know he is perfectly safe doing so!

Seriously, I came across CAULK on the cream couch in my kitchen the other day...gone! 

Potty training? Been there, cleaned that! 

Yes...that is the back of my couch when my favorite toddler decided to 'farm' his {um...yeah...} on the back of out couch...

Our poor couch...this time with ink pen...

A few things I remember cleaning with the Carpet Stain Buster:
  • Ink pen off a couch 
  • Crayon off a couch
  • Potty from carpets and couches 
  • Poop from carpets and couches 
  • Chapstick from couches 
  • Self-Inking address stamps from couches  
Happy Norwexing!

The Norwex Dish Cloth

One reason I fell in love with the Norwex Products instantly was because my now 2 year old son has tons of allergies. We recently visited an allergist and discovered that he has additional food allergies. We suspected this due to the amount of itching he had been doing this spring and summer. Luckily eliminating the allergens from his diet has done wonders for the little man!

With his new allergy diagnosis I have been making homemade bread – because I can’t find any bread in the store that is free of the allergens we are attempting to remove from his diet.

Making bread isn’t a big deal; my grandma had an amazing recipe that she made every Saturday and Sunday for family meals. The mess that the flour / dough mix leaves behind is another story. I didn’t want to clean up the gunk with my EnviroCloth because I felt like it would ‘gum it up’ quickly and be very difficult to get out of all of the tiny fibers.

So I grabbed my Norwex Dish Cloth and decided to try it out on the ‘gunk’.

Of course, it worked like a charm. I followed the Dish Cloth with the every wonderful EnviorCloth and – CLEAN!

The loosely woven netting allowed the gunk and other residue to rinse out of the dish cloth into the sink. It still had a flour/yeast smell so I tossed it in the washing machine with my other Norwex items and it came out fresh, clean, and ready to use.

 It doesn’t look like much but I tell you what, I going to reach for it anytime I have something in my kitchen that is an ooey, gooey, mess!

Happy Norwexing!

Spring Cleaning...with the Norwex Car Wash Mitt & Car Cloth

Spring has finally arrived! With the warm weather come all of the wonderful things of the outdoors. One of which is giving your car a good clean.

Our Camaro is something my husband really enjoys. However since our home renovation and the arrival of our little man, it has been put on the back shelf - for a couple of years…there are only so many hours in a day!

As the weather grew warmer and warmer, Sunday afternoon we decided to get the ‘old girl’ out of the garage and give her the first bath she has had in…hmm…years. I pulled out my Norwex Car Wash Mitt and Car Cloth half expecting my husband to object. I washed a quarter of my SUV to double check there wouldn’t be scratches and sure enough – no scratches. Without hesitation my husband allowed me to clean his Camaro while he followed behind me with the Norwex Car Cloth.

With less time, less water, and no soap his car was clean! I was very impressed with how the car cloths worked and while he tinkered around with is car, I quickly – and easily went over the rest of my SUV!

Like most Norwex Products there is somewhat of a learning curve – or habit reforming – that makes it feel different.

How to use the Norwex Car Wash Mitt & Car Cloth
  • First, you will want to spray your car off, and removed as much dirt and debris as possible.
  • Second, you get the Car Wash Mitt soaked with water. You can do this by filling a bucket and then submerging the Mitt, or by spraying it with a hose.
  • Third, wring out excess water. Begin at the top of your car and work your way down. Wash it in quarters, drying with the Norwex Car Cloth as you go.
  • Forth, move onto the next quarter of your car! Rinsing your Car Wash Mitt as often as you feel needed.

Happy Norwexing!

The Deep Clean Method

The Deep Clean Method:

This is one of the reasons I feel it is so important for those people interested in Norwex to attend a demonstration! There is so. much. information! If you have used regular liquid dishwashing soap on your cloths, or haven't let them dry out all the way before using them again, don't beat yourself up! I did it! Yep, it's true! Your clothes should be able to be saved by using a "Deep Clean Method".

There are several different approaches to this method, basically boil water, add Norwex Detergent, add cloths, remove from heat, allow to cool, rinse with hot water, and allow to dry. If a smell remains, or when rinsing your cloth the excess water is still dingy, repeat. 

This is my method more in-depth. 

1) Heat water (enough to cover the cloths) along with 1 teaspoon of Norwex Ultra Power Plus(TM) Laundry Detergent to a boil. 
2) Remove pot from heat and add cloths. 
3) Allow the water to cool - I typically let it sit overnight. 
4) Rinse each cloth with warm/hot water to allow any debris that was released during soaking to be removed. 
5) Wring to remove excess water, make sure the water is clear. 
6) Allow to dry completely - either by hanging or in the dryer. 

Photos...for those of use who enjoy visuals!
Fill a pot with hot water. 

Add 1/2 Teaspoon of Norwex Laundry Detergent

Heat water to a boil.

Beginning to Boil...

EnviroCloth Pre-Deep Clean.

Remove pot from heat source.

Add Cloth(s) - you can do more than one at a time. :o)

Allow water to cool completely - I prefer allowing them to sit overnight.

Rinse with hot water, this will release any debris that may have been left in the fibers. 

The water after one deep cleaned cloth...yikes!

Wring as much water from the EnvrioCloth as possible. 
The EnviroCloth after the deep clean, the cloth is stained and that is ok! It still works great!

Hang to dry! Our fabulous custom cabinet company installed this super cool towel drying rack that keeps the damp cloth away from the wood! It is awesome! (And full of Norwex!!!)

You can also toss it in the dryer at this point if you wish!

Use Norwex Ultra Power Plus™ Laundry Detergent for best results.
Make sure you allow your cloths to dry completely. Either hanging to dry or in the dryer. If they are not allowed to dry completely they may develop an smell. The smell can be taken care of with the "Deep Clean" method.  

Happy Norwexing!!!

Thank Goodness for Norwex

We all have days where we feel like we just can't keep up. Whether it is housework, schoolwork, work-work, or one of the other hundreds things that demand our time. If those things actually deserve our thoughts, time, and energy is a completely different thought altogether!

Today, my toddler was providing me with a "Thank Goodness for Norwex" day. I should have known when I as given five minutes of distraction free time to get ready to leave the house this morning. I should have known...

This is what I walked into...

 This is our little guy, with yes, lotion all over our couch...He sure is having a great time!
Couch and side table that is...

Knowing that this will be one of the smaller messes our little guy will make, I pulled my green EnviroCloth from under the sink and began to wipe the surfaces covered with lotion. It worked quite well, until I realized it was working a bit too well and the lotion was completely clogging my cloth - Uh-oh!

All cleaned up - Thank Goodness for Norwex!

I was running the cloth under hot water, rinsing, and going back for more lotion. In the end, my Norwex EnviroCloth removed all of the lotion from the surfaces YEAH! However, I wondered if I had ruined my was still filled with lotion residue after many repeated rinses...hmm...had my Norwex finally met its match?
I thought to myself, "If there is ever a time to test out the deep clean method - this is it." 
I began the process...see the full process at the bottom of this post. All in all, it only delayed our departure time long enough to get the pot of water boiling. Once it was I turned off the heat, added the cloth, and headed out the door.

When we returned later that day I checked on the cloth - the water was still warm so I moved the stockpot out of the way to allow it to finish cooling and check again later. When later came, I pulled the cloth from the water and began squishing the fibers between my fingers, testing them to see if the dreaded lotion residue still remained in the cloth.
To my pleasant surprise all of the lotion residue was gone from the EnviroCloth! The deep clean method had worked - and quite well! YEAH, Norwex!
I tested the cloth on several surfaces in the kitchen and continued to be surprised by the result. I tell you, these cloths never seize to amaze me!

Happy Norwexing!!!

120+ Uses for the Norwex EnviroCloth

On an ideal morning I am awake, have completed my morning treadmill run, and have showered by the time my little guy wakes up. On this particular morning I gave myself a challenge as I was putting in my 'treadmill time'. 

I challenged myself to come up with 100 uses for the ever so versatile Norwex EnviroCloth. With my phone in hand I began jogging and typing...there was some walking involved as well. Half-way through my run I had quite the list. My phone was awful sweaty (thank goodness for my EnviroCloth) and filled with over 120 different ways to use the Norwex EnviroCloth. 

Enjoy a few of my thoughts! 
I am sure you can think of more!

The ideas kept flowing! You really can clean about 90% of your home with that wonderful little cloth!

Happy Norwexing!

The Amazing EnviroCloth

One of the most used Norwex products in our home is the absolutely fantastic EnviroCloth. Looking at the cloth you may ask yourself – or me – what is so special about Norwex’s cloth…

Well, let me tell you…
The Norwex EnviroCloth is the Highest Quality Microfiber on the Market
In North America to be considered a microfiber, a fiber must be split 1/6th of a human hair. Norwex’s closest competitor splits their microfiber 1/100th of a human hair. Norwex guarantees that their EnviroCloth is at least 1/200th of a human hair! That is super small.

All that fiber adds up!
Those small fibers really add up in that EnviroCloth! In fact if you were to unravel the EnviroCloth from end to end it would stretch from Maine to Miami, FL!!! That is A LOT of fiber!

I know you’re thinking, “So what, there is a lot of fiber in the cloth. What difference does it make?” All that fiber makes the cloth very dense, giving it the ability to collect 99% of bacteria from a surface when the proper care!!!

The cloth holds all those particles until it is rinsed under warm/hot water. The warm water open the fibers and allows the fibers to release the particles.

Silver, Silver, Silver!
The Norwex EnviroCloth contains their exclusive BacLoc™. Each of those tiny microfibers have silver woven into them. The silver is an antimicrobial, which prevents any bacteria remaining in the cloth from reproducing. As the cloth dries the silver goes to work! This means with proper care the Norwex Cloth should not develop any odors from bacteria, mold, and mildew within the cloth! The Norwex EnviroCloth is a cleaning cloth and DOES need to be cleaned! Look here for my cleaning instructions!
