Norwex...Nor-what!?!?



 Hello Friends~ If anybody knows me, they know that I am not the primary "cleaner" in our family. I am blessed to have a husband that LOVES to clean! I am so thankful for him when I come home to a clean house! He also LOVES cleaning products...he is slowly jumping on board with my new routine and happy that I am embracing his passion to clean! Haha!
Below is my new routine that offers the MOST EFFECTIVE, CHEAPEST, EASIEST, FASTEST, MOST STREAK-FREE cleaning I have EVER used!!! It's one of the very best things I've ever done for my health and for my home. And it might just shock you:

KITCHEN:

1. Greasy Stove Top:  ONLY WATER.

2. Kitchen Sink:  ONLY WATER.

3. Glass Fronts of Appliances:  ONLY WATER.

4. Stainless Steel Appliances: ONLY WATER.

5. Cupboard Fronts: ONLY WATER.

6. Inside Microwave, Refrigerator & Oven: ONLY WATER.

Are you ready for more??

BATHROOM:

1. Sink: ONLY WATER.

2. Toilet: ONLY WATER.

3. Mirrors: ONLY WATER.

4. Chrome Fixtures: ONLY WATER.

5. Bathtub & Shower, including moldy discolored areas:  ONLY WATER.

6. Bathroom Granite Tile:  ONLY WATER.

DUSTING / FLOORS / WALLS:

1. Furniture Dusting: ONLY WATER.

2. Wood Floors: ONLY WATER.

3. Windows: ONLY WATER.

4. Walls: ONLY WATER

So how on earth is this possible?!?

I learned about this from a new friend that I met at one of my art shows. She introduced me to this whole idea. She told me of a product that lets her clean 95% of her home with only water. I thought it sounded gross or like it probably was a hoax. HOW WRONG I WAS.

The product is (2) uniquely designed micro fiber towels.

-One is for washing. 


-One is for polishing.


The fibers are EXTREMELY absorbent - more so than any other microfiber cloth I have ever tried. Other micro fiber cloths do not even compare at all to the absorbency of these cloths. They are seriously so much better it's stupid.

How It Works:

You spray a little water on any surface - and then because of the super absorbent fibers of the cloth - the cloth will pick up and retain every germ, piece of dirt, residue, oil, etc. Also, the cloths are woven with silver fibers, which are naturally anti-bacterial. So any germs and bacteria within the cloth will be disinfected. This leads to another major plus: The cloths don't get sour and don't stink - EVEN IN SUMMER. I recently left my wet dirty ones after I cleaned the house on my washer for about 5 days and they had NO ODOR!

I can tell you I have NEVER gotten my house to look cleaner - yet I'm using no chemicals and almost no effort. You can literally smear a cube of butter on a mirror and within seconds wipe that stuff off with these two cloths!! NO STREAKS. NO RESIDUE. NOTHING. That's how absorbent these cloths are.
The real hoax is that we've been brainwashed to think we have to disinfect every last thing and buy a zillion cleaning products to make our home "smell clean" - no matter the toxins, no matter the cost to our health and our wallets. These cloths are all about removing germs and dirt in a physical manner- by absorbing them. They truly do make something clean as they leave nothing behind (sponges and other cloths can't even come close to that.) Also, using these allows you to free up loads of space normally occupied by 10 different cleaners! I had special cleaners for each job. But even then, it was nearly impossible to really get everything looking perfect. But by using these cloths with 100% water, I am telling you these items are absolutely SPOTLESS in literally seconds - grease and everything. They really, really are the best things I've used.

What Sold me!

First, removing the chemicals from our home that we breathe in when we clean is what first SOLD me!  But when I saw the demonstration on cleaning raw chicken with clorox wipes versus the norwex cloths...OMG!! Disgusting! Basically The sprays and wipes just SPREAD the raw chicken around and the anti-bacterial Norwex cloths REMOVE it with ONLY WATER! Y'all those sprays DON'T WORK!

These cloths also last about 500 washes~ That is almost 10 years with washing once a week! I am so impressed with the product that I may even start to sell the cloths as a company rep in my spare time! Ha Ha!. I am telling you, they are THAT good.






So how do you buy them?

Order from my friend, Tracy Peer, by going to her website. The cloth company is called Norwex (a company from Norway) and they don't sell in stores, but through reps. Tracy is located in Baton Rouge but can send the cloths to you anywhere. Here is the household package. I recommend starting with at least these three items. You can buy them in a set here and I highly, highly recommend getting an extra envirocloth or two. You don’t have to but I have one that I only use for the bathroom and one that I use for everything else. You can also email Tracy directly for any questions or training and tips on how to use your new cloths (trust me, the training from her is worth it as it's a completely new way of doing things). She also hosts green cleaning events here in Baton Rouge where you can learn about other products and techniques for "greening" your home. I will be hosting an event (CCP EVENT) for parents at the preschool as a fundraiser for the school to reduce the chemical use and purchase enviro-cloths for every classroom and I will also do one in my home in March! You can come to one of my events or order online on Tracy’s website

What do you think of this? Intrigued or shocked? Grossed out?! Would you even consider cleaning with JUST WATER?!? I will admit, it's completely a mental adjustment. It took me awhile to get used to it. But now I'll never turn back.
