How “Micro” is the fiber?

Getting all of the surfaces in your home as clean as possible, as quickly as possible, can be challenging.  In addition, many of today’s popular cleaners contain harsh chemicals.  One would easily assume that since they are sold in our local stores that they were tested and are safe to use.

I was shocked to learn that; “About 80,000 new chemicals have been introduced into the environment in the last 50 years.  Sadly, only about 200 of these have ever been assessed for their impact on human health.”   Bjorn Nicolaisen (co-founder of Norwex)

When first introduced to Norwex, I was intrigued and excited, but my husband was the skeptic.   Hearing that Norwex Enviro Cloths could clean the surfaces in my home without the need for additional chemical cleaning products was foreign to me. On top of that, the claim that I could clean my home in a quarter of the time seemed too good to be true.  But, I loved a clean home and was more than willing to remove the chemical cleaning products from where I was raising my young family.

My first thoughts included, What’s the difference between Norwex Enviro Cloths and the cloths sold at the dollar store?

What differentiates the two, is how “micro” the fibers in the Norwex cloth are.  The cloths available at your local store generally have a fiber size of approximately 1/6 the size of a human hair while the Norwex Enviro Cloth threads are sized at 1/200th the diameter of a human hair.  It is how “micro” the fibers are that determines the cleaning ability of your cloth.  If we were to completely unravel a Norwex Enviro Cloth, the 2.9 million meters of microfiber would reach all the way from Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada) right down to the Gulf of Mexico!

As incredible as that is, there is still more cleaning ability contained within the cloth!  Norwex BacLock Enviro Cloths are interwoven with MicroSilver, an antibacterial agent which goes to work against bacterial odors, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.  This self-purification process ensures the cloth is ready to use again and again.

The Norwex antibacterial Microfiber Enviro Cloth removes dust, dirt and grease from all washable surfaces using only water – no additional chemicals required.  The super absorbent cloths pick up and trap everything that was on the surface until you rinse it out.

Our family was totally sold on the Norwex product collection when we learned the cloths were already being used to clean hospitals.  It was this simple; if these cloths cleaned to a level high enough to pass the stringent testing required to be used at the hospital, they certainly were good enough for our home!

Key Benefits:

  • Used them dry for dusting, it creates static electricity that lifts the smallest particles of dust and dirt up into the cloth and prevents them from resettling on the surfaces.
