Do you like systems and organization? I do! I encourage my customers to color-code the microfiber cloths in their home. When Norwex lovers are asked what is their favorite product, it is predominantly the EnviroCloth! This cloth literally cleans up everything and it works amazing… with only water, so there’s no harmful chemical residue left behind– just the real clean.
Since the cloths come in four colors, I have always color-coded our home and have taught my customers to do the same. It’s a simple system:
Red is our go-to kitchen-cloth. It’s used for 2-3 days to wipe down the: counters, stove, microwave, exterior of the fridge and interior plexiglass shelving, the table after each meal, finger prints on the dishwasher and watermarks on the facet and in the sink! This hard-working cloth absorbs spilled tomato sauce, burnt on food, spilled milk or grape juice. Because you cannot bleach your Norwex cloths, red is a great color to camouflage any accidental staining from your daily kitchen activities!
Blue is the designated color for any heavy cleaning project. It lives under the kitchen sink and is pulled out for, wiping the floor when unexpected spills happen, cleaning the very dirty patio furniture, wiping the BBQ or oven, detailing the car, or washing outdoor windows. This way, one cloth does all the extra dirty work, instead of potentially staining every cloth you own!
Green cloths are used to maintain our bathrooms. Years ago we would squeegee our shower, but inevitably the doors and walls still got very grungy. Now, after each shower we quickly wipe down the shower stall to prevent soap scum and mineral deposits. In 10 years since our family was first introduced to Norwex, we have not sprayed any toxic cleaning chemical in our shower. That said, I don’t expect my family to deep clean after each shower. So we do use DeScaler for maintaining the tub and floor weekly. One green EnviroCloth wipes up the shower walls, bathroom counter and mirror for a week. Take a cleaning moment and you won’t need a cleaning day!
Yellow cloths are used for cleaning the toilets. Norwex has an excellent cleaner for inside the toilets, but this cloth is used for detailing the porcelain and seat. It hangs on the plumbing under each bathroom sink. It’s always handy if needed.
Friday is Norwex laundry day at our home and with this cloth system it is very simple. After the cloths come out of the dryer, each cloth is put back where it belongs. Only the Red cloths are folded and returned to the kitchen drawer, the rest are all returned to be used as intended in their designated areas for another week… until they are laundered again.
At my shows everyone laughs when I ask, “Now what would you be thinking if you found a yellow cloth on my counter when you come over for coffee?” : ) See… the system works! Everything stays where it belongs! Simplicity my friends!
