Testimonies to Eliminate Stink…Odour Eliminator

Testimonies to Eliminate Stink…Odour Eliminator

Our homes are often bombarded by unwanted odour.  Life is messy, stinky business.  And that is okay… especially because we usually love those and the activities that stink up our homes… such as hockey-playing boys, well-used running sneakers, sick kid during the night, cloth diapers, the family pet — like our new addition Bentley, just to name a few.

Norwex has a fabulous line of enzyme-based cleaning products, including: Sportzyme, Carpet Stain Buster, Oven & Grill Cleaner etc.  This post highlights the Odour Eliminator, another amazing enzyme-based cleaner that is effective because of the bacterial spores in the solution that work to eat up the organic matter causing the odour.  It is an organic solution that leaves a fresh scent without any dyes or chemical-laden masking fragrances.  My team and I have heard lots of great testimonies about the Odour Eliminator… Here are a few that may be a solution for you.

 

tip“I want to thank you for recommending Norwex Odour Eliminator as a way to combat pet smells in my home.

I am a cat owner and work very hard to keep my home fresh from a pet smell. After moving my cat boxes to another room, I noticed the “cat smell” in the room. Making sure there where no “accidents” on the floor, I sprayed the room with a mixture of the Odour Eliminator and water. I sprayed the entire room and left (I did not open any windows for airing). I came back a half hour later and the smell had lessened but was it was still there. I sprayed the room again and this time I also sprayed the litter boxes themselves.

WOW!!! I came back about one hour later and the smell was completely gone!

I am so happy to not only have the smell dissipated but the knowledge that it was done with a green product that is safe for pets.  It is amazing!

“Odour Eliminator has now become a part of my cleaning routine with my pets. I cannot thank you enough for making my house happy and healthy!”  Sincerely, A satisfied pet owner ~ Melinda

“I have a client who swears by this for her horse barn!” ~ Melissa Gregson-Webber

“The odour eliminator does just what the name says! It eliminates our cloth diaper odour in the wash with just a squeeze! It also works great to get rid of pet accident smells!” ~ Charly Ball

“At a show I did last night, a lady was having trouble with her cat going #2 in her dog kennel. She sprayed the kennel with a strong dilution of Odour Eliminator and the cat stopped.”  ~ Arlene George

“I love a capful of Odour Eliminator in my fabric softener slot with laundry. I have a boy who still wets at night and in the middle of the night will kick off his soaked bottoms and put new bottoms on. He sometimes leaves them under the covers and I don’t always find them until a day or two later. The smell is very strong. I love that the Odour Eliminator takes care of the source of the odour (as it is an enzyme cleaner) and doesn’t just mask it like scented detergents!” ~ Darci Cree Grifhorst

“I spray the soft surfaces with the diluted Odour Eliminator spray – curtains, pillows, cloth couches and chairs, rugs, etc. I clean 10 cottages every week and do this on a regular basis. Freshens and deodorizes without the heavy scent.” ~ Lois Gitzel

Cooking is another source of unwanted lingering odouring in our homes.  Here is a great tip on how to remove lingering smoke smell from burnt food.  Use 1:7 Odour Eliminator to Water and spritz the air, it works amazing!  Carole Kuypers, a fabulous consultant, admitted to burning the broccoli one night, “ It was broccoli, yes! I used the Odour Eliminator. Love that stuff… works great!”

As you can see there are countless ways to use Norwex’s Odour Eliminator!  It’s that fantastic… another simple way to keep our homes clean (& fresh) without harmful chemicals.

Well-Used Ovens and BBQs need some Love?

Well-Used Ovens and BBQs need some Love?

Recently my family hosted a delicious lasagne dinner for our extended family. It was a full house — with approximately 40 people in attendance. We needed a lot of lasagne that night! We baked a few in the oven and a few (my husband’s brilliant idea) in the barbecue. Not only did we cook a lot of lasagne that night, we made a lot of mess in both my oven and barbecue!  The lasagne exploded all over the place!!!  Lucky for me, Norwex makes a great Oven and Grill Cleaner.

Here are pictures of my personal oven … Before & After.

Cleaning Oven Collage

I did included step-by-step cleaning instructions in an earlier Spring Clean post… but thought that if you have a busy family or a lasagne party, or are hosting Thanksgiving dinner and need to clean up the bottom of your oven before cooking the turkey, or you were ready to put the barbecue away for the winter season, this enzyme-based cleaner will make your oven/barbecue clean and look brand new!

Did you know that the “self-cleaning” cycle in your oven releases toxic lingering fumes in our homes making it an unhealthy for our families and especially our small children and small pets?

Here’s a little ‘how-to’ refresher:

Cleaning Racks CollageCleaning the oven used to be an enormous task but with Oven and Grill cleaner, simply turn the oven on to 175°, once it is preheated turn the oven off. Spray the Oven and Grill solution on the racks, walls, base, door  and glass window. Let the solution sit for 10 minutes. Wipe it clean with a Spirinett and then an EnviroCloth.  These targeted enzyme breaks down any burnt food or residue in your oven or on your racks and turns it into a black liquid which is easy to wipe clean. Never before has cleaning your oven been so simple or toxic free!

What shocks me every time, is how my Norwex EnviroCloth rinses clean after wiping up these significant messes!!

Cleaning your barbecue is also made simple with Norwex Oven and Grill Cleaner. First roll your barbecue on to a tarp to catch any drips from the cleaning solution and black char from your barbecue. It would be awful for the cleaning process to damage your deck boards. Next, preheat your barbecue to approximately 175°. Turn the barbecue off. Then, spray the Oven and Grill cleaner on the racks. Wait for approximately 10 minutes, when you return, wipe down the rack with a Spirinett and then with an EnviroCloth. The EnviroCloth will also do beautiful job of cleaning/polishing the stainless steel exterior of your barbecue.

 

 

So if you missed the cleaning fever in the Spring or your summer has been filled with hosting backyard barbecues or lasagna has been exploding in your oven, Norwex has a safe and easy solution… again.

Quick & Easy Clean Up For Sick Kids!

Quick & Easy Clean Up For Sick Kids!

This post is not for those with a weak stomach, but it is for those with real-life troubles, like throw up in the middle of the night on your carpet and other undesirable areas and a real-life, non-toxic solution from Norwex.
Our family was invited to a celebration that went late into the evening. Our youngest daughter had enjoyed many treats which were left out and was encouraged to filled her plate.  What 11-year-old doesn’t like great snacks? Unfortunately, later that night at quarter past midnight, Doug and I both heard her in the washroom. In all our 16 years of parenting we had never seen the sight that we were about to find. All three of our girls have been good at either hitting the toilet, or grabbing the throw up bucket located in the hallway closet. Occasionally some vomit would hit the bed, or the carpet, but we had never seen anything like this.  This came on way too fast and furious for her to react. As she crawled out of bed it exploded across her room. It hit everything including her bed, carpet, down the mirror, walls and curtains, everything. With a slight break in the heaving, she managed to make it to the washroom. Standing on the edge of the carpet, it struck again. The projectile vomit reached from the edge of bathroom door all to the way to the wall by the toilet paper. Luckily, the majority of it landed on linoleum, but it was pooling everywhere. It was on the baseboards, down the white cabinetry, on the shower curtain, all over the toilet, even running down the walls. A friend of ours who was once a doctor in the pediatric emergency ward told us that since it came on so quickly it was likely food poisoning. It’s short, but explosive!  Thankfully her last bout hit the bucket.
If you’ve ever been in the same situation you know how we felt.  First, it requires all hands on deck!  Second, it requires comforting and cleaning up the child. Third, it requires tackling the clean up.  For those with weak stomachs, the aroma is sometimes enough to make them want to vomit. After Doug and I assessed the damage, we each picked an area. I was thankful Doug tackled the carpet and I tackled the rest.
When things like this happen in my life, I wonder what on earth do people do without Norwex? Our home was converted over 10 years ago and I can’t imagine our lives without it.
This is the alternative. When our daughter was in grade one, another kid got sick at school.  When our daughter informed the custodian, he came armed with his mop and bucket … but the bucket of smelly water smelled worse than the kid’s vomit.  Our family home is a chemical-free zone.   Our school is not. Our society has affiliated the smell of chemicals with cleanliness. But chemicals are dangerous for us to inhale because when we inhale, we ingest and absorb the chemicals into our bodies. Vomit is gross, but the tradition chemicals used to clean them up, is toxic.  Hence the scull and cross bones.  Just because it’s pictured on many household bottles, that shouldn’t alarm us less.
So how did we clean up our massive midnight disaster? You may laugh, but I considered taking before and after photos, but reconsidered in order to spare both you and I.
Step One:  Get a bucket, a large spoon and scoop up the mess.
Step Two:  Cleaning the linoleum. Grab an EnviroCloth and pour the magical enzyme-based solution Odour Eliminator into a sink of hot water.  The worst thing about vomit is the strong stench and slime. This odour eliminator is unbelievable, it works to eliminator the odour as you work to clean the mess. The enzymes imediately go to work to totally get rid of the odour that fills the room. If you are the one who is sick,  you’ll especially appreciate scent of the Odour Eliminator, as the smell of the vomit alone can make you throw up again.   Tip: Use the Odour Eliminator as a air freshener by diluting with water in a water spray bottle (1:7). This is a chemical-free replacement for aerosol and spray bathroom fresheners.
Step Three:   Launder the bedding, blankets and stuffed animals. Use Norwex Ultra Plus Power (UPP) Laundry Detergent and a cap full of  Odour Eliminator. The enzymes of the Odour Eliminator together with the UPP Laundry Detergent will work to get your linens fresh again. There is no need for chemical-laden-scented fabric softeners to freshen the laundry.
Step Four:  Cleaning the carpet. Our carpet is ivory and therefore we have a handy little carpet cleaner. Put a cap full of  Norwex’s UPP Laundry Detergent into your machine. Once you have gone over the surface, grab your Norwex enzyme-based Carpet Stain Buster. This is an amazing product. It is not designed to give you instant results.  It is an enzyme, it works over time giving you long-term effective results.   After the mess is cleaned up and you are left with the stuborn stain, mist the Carpet Stain Buster over the affected areas and walk away. Let it sit on the surface and the live enzymes will be activated by the organic matter and will remove the stains in the upcoming hours.  Done!
Read this testimony from a Norwex customer.
“My son threw up in the middle of the night all over our cream-coloured carpet. I grabbed the first carpet cleaner off the shelf, a Super Market brand, and used that to scrub the carpet. A week later the carpet was still stained. I took the Norwex Carpet Stain Buster and used that instead of the other brand and within a week the stains were completely gone! As you had explained to me before, I believe it is because the enzymes keep working until they have nothing else to “eat up” and I think this story proves that!”

HELP:  Sweat Stinks!

HELP: Sweat Stinks!

The smell of sweat is not attractive! Do stinky, smelly sports gear and clothing intrude on your senses?  What about smelly shoes that have been on sweaty feet all day?   Norwex has an amazing enzyme-based product, Sportzyme, which eliminates organic odor from shoes, high heels, work boots, equipment bags, shoulder pads, knee pads, skates, cleats, helmets, air casts and more.

The special bio-active formula in Sportzyme contains dormant, non-pathogenic, fast-acting microbes and enzymes that break down and eliminate the organic residues which cause odours.

When sprayed on a surface, these microbes feed off food sources such as sweat, urine and other organic matter present on sports or work equipment, clothes, footwear, or other gear.

These microbes release enzymes that break down the organic matter into smaller particles, which allows the microbes to digest the organics and convert them into water and carbon dioxide.

Key Features:

  • Destroy organic odours completely.
  • Based on natural enzymes.
  • Formulated with enzymes that target organic odours.
  • No animal testing.
  • Non-aerosol pump.
  • Container is recyclable, HDPE #2.

TO USE:

  1. Shake well before using.
  2. Spray over the entire surface where the odor is present.
  3. Apply heavily for the first application.
  4. Allow time to work.
  5. Reapply after 48 hours if needed.

Sportzyme is regularly used at our home! From hockey equipment, the girls’ basketball shoes, winter boots… everything gets a good spray to eliminate the odour!

I once did a presentation for a lady who jokingly told me that the Norwex Sportzyme saved her marriage.  Her husband had played hockey for years.  He had a routine after each practice or game which involved placing his hockey gear, including the gloves, on all the heat registers around the house.  YES, it REALLY STANK!!  The whole house was rancid.  She purchased a bottle of Sportzyme which her husband now uses faithfully after each game and, to their delight … his gear is odourless!

Do you have a stinky shoe closet?  Leave the Sportzyme bottle on the top shelf of your closet for easy access.  Give your footwear a quick spray and in the morning your closet will be scentless.

Many are skeptical about this product, until they try it.  At my parties, I state that I’d stick my head into my husband’s hockey bag… without hesitation!  There is NO odour!

Did You Know?

Enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts, capable of speeding up chemical reactions, which help complex reactions occur everywhere in life.  They bind to the reactants in a chemical reaction and assist in the reaction without being changed at all themselves.

Science has been able to identify approximately 3,000 enzymes in the body, and each one of them carries out a very specific task. Most enzymes are used for the body’s normal metabolic processes (digestion, breathing).  Certain enzymes ensure that, in the case of injury, the blood coagulates and the wound heals, while other enzymes control the production of important hormones in the body. Enzymes also destroy environmental toxins and disease-causing free radicals and can kill intruding pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and fungi.
