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?
If so, then imagine this: You are at the mall food court with your 2 small children. It’s right at noon and your kids are in a terrible, whiny mood from shopping too long and being hungry. You grab a couple of kids meals and look for an open table to sit at. It’s super crowded and it looks like there are no tables to sit at. Out of the corner of your eye, you see another family is getting up, ready to clear off their table. But right before they leave, one of their kids sneezes all over the table. You also see a large smear of ketchup they left behind. You look around again for a cleaner option and there is not one single table open. You slowly and cautiously walk over to that table as its your only choice. But First, you dig through your purse and find your disinfectant wipes to create a clean environment before your kids touch anything! PHEW! You Are Safe! The disinfectant wipes saved the day! …………Or did they??!!
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 until I watched this:
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!! When I first read and heard about the Norwex and was like “YEAH RIGHT!” I’ll admit that when I heard about this company in the past, I ignorantly just rolled my eyes at another sales gimmick (so if you are skeptical right now – that’s ok – SO WAS I!!)
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 ordered and Envirocloth among other Norwex products to try. In fact I quickly turned into one of those fanatics that wanted the entire catalog ASAP!
You too might be wondering how the Norwex Microfiber works better than a disinfectant wipe or cotton wash cloth. Here’s why:
What’s cool too is that 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 re-usuable 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!
Here is me doing a quick Facebook Live demo on how to using an Envirocloth and Window cloth is the EASIEST way to clean mirrors and windows!!
Norwex doesn’t just sell envirocloth’s – there are hundreds of products! They also offer monthly customer specials – and here are the ones for July 2018:
More about Norwex: 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 it – 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!!!)
Since becoming a mom, my 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 in 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!
