Looking for the Perfect Bridal Shower?

Looking for the Perfect Bridal Shower?

You don’t marry someone you can live with – you marry the person who you cannot live without. – Unknown

Are you or someone you love getting married this summer?  Do you want to bless the bride-to-be with a shower to help set up her home in a way that will create a safe haven?  Whether the bride-to-be has never heard of Norwex or she already loves Norwex products and can’t wait to stock up her new home… a Norwex bridal shower is always a great choice.  I have helped set up their home with Norwex products that they will love and use for 10+ years to come!

Getting together with friends and family to celebrate an upcoming wedding is always soooooo much fun, so much excitement, so many hopes & dreams, and such a great time help brides-to-be set up her home so that it is free from unnecessary chemicals to create safe place for her new family to live and grow.

When I started my Norwex business in 2006, in the greater Edmonton area, I met many people who had never heard of Norwex. Often their young daughters would hang out during the party, watch and learn how to clean their home. It is amazing to teach people about Norwex, because it is a radically different way of cleaning homes.  It is chemical-free, uses green clean methods that actually work, saves time and saves money.  Now, 11 years later, nothing brings me more JOY than helping the daughters of the individuals I first met and help them set up their homes.  This generation truly cares about their environment and believe that they can make a difference.  They are also busier than ever and need quick solutions to keep their homes clean. Some of these daughters are lucky enough to have always cleaned with Norwex… so they have their favourite products and a long wish list for their bridal party.

How does a Norwex Bridal Party work?

Whether it is a request of the bride-to-be or a surprise shower, she will be able to stock her new home with LOTS of free product! So the bride-to-be needs to make herself a Wish List (this can happen during the party or before).

The bride-to-be earns free product through the generous hosting rewards:

  1. Everyone who attends the party can purchase product for themselves… just like any regular party.
  2. Invite friends and family who live near or far across the country to place an order.

The Norwex Host Rewards increases as the amount of total guest sales, the number of buying guest, and the number of new party bookings increase.  When family come together to shower the bride-to-be, the Norwex reward program will also supply her with free product to compliment the gifts she receives.  Every month the host rewards change; check out April  host rewards to get an idea of what she will receive.

Options for blessing the bride-to-be: 

  1. Friends and family can add anything off the bride-to-be’s wish list onto their orders… as a gift!
  2. Friends and family can bless the bride-to-be by placing cash or a cheque into an envelope to help her purchase anything on her wish list!

*** Remember that each purchase increases the bride-to-be’s host rewards!!!

What will the party be like?
Feel free to plan the party to suit the bride-to-be!  There will be a time of teaching about Norwex; it is fun, short and interactive. There will also be time required to place orders and get that organized. But the sky is the limit to how you plan the shower.  Whether you serve elegant wine and hors d’oeuvres or have a more casual gathering with drinks and finger foods… a Norwex Shower will certainly be a blessing.
The bride-to-be is always THRILLED with all her FREE product.  Once a home is set up with Norwex… they are set up for years to come!  Seriously, my mop is over 11 years old!!  Norwex products save time, money, our health and the environment.  I can’t think of a better gift than that!  Contact me today to set up your bridal party!

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile. – Franklin P. Jones

Are you moving into a new home?  Consider having a Norwex housewarming  party!  You will earn all the host rewards and make your new home a safe haven.

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.

Converse Shoes & Cleaning Paste

Converse Shoes & Cleaning Paste

Favourite Shoes need a little Brightening?

before shoes 3

Every once and a while our shoes start looking worn and dirty from all the places they have travelled.  Countless adventures in the backyard, at the campsite, in your garden, evening walks, stops at the grocery store, strolls through the mall, back and forth to your kids’ school and many countless errands have been made possible in your shoes. You may be tempted to buy a new pair, or maybe they are your very favourite pair and you would continue wearing them no matter what… luckily with Norwex, you won’t have to do either. Norwex has a solution to brighten up your tired shoes and give them a second chance.

Norwex affectionately calls its Cleaning Paste “elbow grease in a jar” because it works hard and it is has LOTS of different applications.  From cleaning stove tops, to making sinks shine, to removing coffee stains from coffee pots, to scrubbing the grout in between your tile…  and now you can use it to clean your shoes too!!! Plus… the Cleaning Paste only has 3 active ingredients: marble-flour, natural soup & coconut oil!

Dig out your shoes and simply grab a SpiriSponge and a dab of Cleaning Paste and give the rubber edges of your shoes a good scrub.  Use a damp, well-wrung EnviroCloth to wipe the edge clean. You will be amazed how your shoes will like new again and be ready for your next adventure.

In the case of these favourite shoes, new laces were needed too… sometimes you got to do, what you got to do, for a good pair of shoes 🙂

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.

Creative Kids? No Problem!

Creative Kids? No Problem!

Do crayon, marker and scuff marks decorate your walls?  What about soap scum on your bathtubs and shower stalls?  Many scrubbers are too abrasive, cleaning chemicals are toxic, and a cloth just doesn’t fix your problems.

I can relate.  As a mother of three creative girls, I know what it’s like to feel as if I need to walk behind them scrubbing their trail as they go.

My good friend Carole’s daughter has had a love for art since the age of 3, which became evident when she decided to draw on the basement walls of their home. She told her mom she was making them look “prettier”.

It makes me laugh thinking about how children’s brains function; their imaginations are so precious and it is something I wholeheartedly believe should be encouraged, no matter what. However, freshly painted walls are also something you wouldn’t want to ruin…

Norwex’s Micro Cleaning Hand Pads are a safe and effective alternative to leading brand cleaning erasers; products you don’t want to leave lying around your kids.

  • These cleaning pads are eco-friendly and chemical-free, unlike many similar products.
  • They will not cause skin irritation or absorb toxins into your skin while in use!
  • This product is tough on stubborn stains, yet less abrasive than a scrubber.
  • Works great on easy-to-scratch surfaces such as: walls, plastic furniture, tile, and most kitchen and bathroom surfaces.
  • They are great for erasing scuff marks from the: linoleum floor, trim, molding, baseboards, interior consoles, and dashboards, patio furniture etc…
  • Works with little pressure applied.

How to Use:

  1. Cut a piece off the pad – since it disintegrates with use.
  2. Dip into warm water and squeeze out excess water.
  3. Rub the surface with a light pressure.

**Not recommended for polished or glossy surfaces, or for brushed satin, dark or faux finishes.  Not for use on auto paintwork.

I have a couple of favourite demonstrations for this product at my Norwex parties:

  • Take an old tea cup, with bad stains from tea…within seconds it is totally clean!
  • For customers with dimpled white-handled appliances…totally wipe them clean!

This is an inexpensive solution to the irritating stubborn stains and scuff marks around your home.  Give it a try!Screen Shot 2015-02-13 at 9.14.12 PM
