Are you a germ conscience mom like me that is wary of getting sick when touching door knobs, public toilets, shopping carts, or restaurant tables?
Do you carry around disinfectant wipes in your purse to wipe down these surfaces in order to keep your family safe from germs?
What if I told you that there is some small print on the back of those disinfectant wipes containers that you may have missed?
- Did you wait long enough for the table to be wet before you sat down to eat? (like 4-10 minutes until the table was disinfected?)
- Did you also rinse off the table with water before eating from it after wiping with the chemical wipe? (no one wants to ingest that stuff!!)
You didn’t do those things?? Me neither!
What if I told you I know of a product that cleans better than a disinfectant wipe, and uses just water (no harsh chemicals on tables you are eating off of!)? No waiting and no rinsing to know your surface is totally clean. Don’t believe me? That’s ok – I didn’t either.
After I watched this demo for the first time, my jaw literally dropped! Who would really think there would be something that works better than a disinfecting wipe to clean our counters??!!
I found out that Norwex microfiber users claim they do and that this cloth picks up more dirt and bacteria off of your counter’s surface than any other spray cleaner + a paper towel or normal kitchen towel, or disinfecting wipe!! Norwex users even claim they will clean up raw chicken juice just using this cloth and water – no disinfectant spray needed – seriously!!
I used to be a high school biology teacher and one of my favorite biology demos I would do with my students was using that Glo Germ powder in my hand and fake sneeze to simulate how far germs spread. When I saw a company using the same stuff to show me really how clean my counters will be after using their cloth, I started paying attention.
The more I learned about how the microfiber cloth works and self-cleans, the more intrigued I became. Needless to say, I ordered an EnviroCloth among other Norwex products to try. In fact, I quickly turned into one of those fanatics that wanted the entire catalog ASAP!
Still wondering how the Norwex Microfiber works better than a disinfectant wipe or cotton wash cloth? Here’s the answer:
Norwex also offers a travel pack of smaller EnviroCloths. You can carry these in your purse and use these when you would normally get out your disinfectant wipes! Keep them in a wet wipes bag and wash every week.
No more chemicals, plus you’ll save money since you are no longer buying disinfectant wipes! Don’t make the same mistake I was by assuming everything was clean after using those disposable wipes!
Norwex doesn’t just sell Envirocloth’s – they have hundreds of green cleaning products for your home!
They also offer monthly customer specials – and here are the ones for April 2019:
If you are a nerd like me and want more details on how these clothes work – then keep reading:
The Norwex antibacterial Microfiber EnviroCloth removes dust, dirt and grease from all washable surfaces using only water—no chemicals! Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions. The super-absorbent EnviroCloth picks up dust particles and traps them in the cloth until you rinse it out. The BacLoc traps particles, including bacteria so that it stays in the cloth and won’t cross contaminate.
I’ve been doing more research and this cloth is not an actual disinfectant. It traps the bacteria until you clean it. Rinsing it in water helps wash out the germs and grime. Laundering in the Norwex Ultra Power Plus Laundry detergent officially cleans the Norwex cloths – but boiling them for 10 minutes every couple of months will completely sterilize the microfiber. (Oh, and if you get the laundry detergent, a little goes a long way and a bag can last you 4-6 months!!!)
My House Is Clean Again!
Since becoming a mom, the cleanliness expectations of my home have significantly decreased. I’ve let cobwebs linger, dust collect, tubs to go un-scrubbed far too long and with two small children because I’m just too tired to care! But since Norwex products arrived at my house, my kitchen, tubs, windows, and floors haven’t been this thoroughly clean in a long time! These products make cleaning easier and faster for sure!
