Chapped Skin’s All-Season Cure

Chapped Skin’s All-Season Cure

Alright my friends… here’s a product you shouldn’t live without!  Norwex’s Shea Butter is fabulous for severely dry skin including: hands, feet, elbows, cuticles, scalp, and lips.  It’s all natural and organic ingredients include Avocado Oil as well as Vitamin E.

Harsh environmental elements such as the sun, wind, heat and cold can dry your skin.  Norwex Shea Butter is your much needed moisturizer.  Your skin will feel nourished and be protected against the elements as it soaks up this incredible moisturizing product!

What I also think is fabulous, are the ingredients which are not found in the bottle.  The Ecocert-certified Organic Shea Butter is free from:

  • GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms)
  • Parabens
  • Phenoxyethanol
  • Nanoparticles
  • Silicone
  • PEG (Polyethylene Glycol)
  • Synthetic perfumes and dyes
  • Animal-derived ingredients

Do you have a family member or friend with fly-away hair?  This product is also an excellent balm for taming dry or frizzy hair.

This product feels firm when removed from the jar, simply massage it into your hand to warm it up prior to use.

Did you know?

People have appreciated the healing properties of Shea Butter for centuries.  Its history can be traced back to ancient Egypt, where it was used to protect the hair and skin against the fierce effects of the sun and hot, dry desert winds.  It is derived from the nut of the Shea tree and melts at body temperature.

For those who are enduring cold weather for the entire winter (as many of us are), the cool temperatures and dry winter air are guaranteed to challenge our skin, leaving us with cracked hands and sore lips.  Not surprisingly our hands are one of the first parts of our bodies to show signs of aging.  You can combat the winter effects by soothing your hands with Shea Butter.  It’s a perfect year-round remedy!

**Allergy Alert:  Contains oil from the Shea Nut

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

No Tricks – Norwex is a Treat!

No Tricks – Norwex is a Treat!

With Halloween right around the corner, festive activities are fast approaching. Costume-making, decorating and entertaining at our home are all parts of Halloween enjoyed by the whole family. Cleaning in preparation for these festivities, however…is preferred to be done quickly!

Maybe you have a dog that frequents your windows, or it’s been a while since you’ve have the time to clean, so your front windows are streaky.  Do you want to give them a quick wipe down before the big night?  Try the Norwex Window Cloth  and an EnviroCloth for totally cleaning your dirty windows.

Norwex’s Window cloths are a fast and effective way to get your windows streak-free. In fact, because you use only water with the cloths, your little pirate or ballerina can even help out with cleaning them!

When our girls were little, I’d give them a spray bottle of water and a Window Cloth.  They could clean all of our glass coffee and end tables and they thought it was fun.  Well, now I have teenagers.  They still clean, but the fun factor of helping “Mom” has subsided.  For me, the great thing is, with age has come height; now they can clean the whole window, top to bottom!

In order to get the real-clean, and see the real-gleam of your windows, Norwex’s Basic Package is sold as a pack of two cloths; giving you a ‘washer’ (the EnviroCloth) and a ‘polisher’ (the Window Cloth)!

Don’t forget to check out Norwex’s Kids Window Cloth, perfect for little hands!

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.

At a home presentation I did a while ago the host had a gas stove.  Her kettle was tarnished from repeated exposure to natural gas flame.  My host was explaining to her guests how she had tried everything to get it clean.  So… with the Cleaning Paste and a Spirisponge, I effortlessly demonstrated how this amazing product WORKS!

Cleaning Paste & Kitchen Scrub Cloth - Tea Kettle (Before & After) by Meighan Hopper w TextHow To Use:

  1. Dampen a Spirisponge, EnviroCloth, Kitchen Scrub Cloth or Scrubby Corner Cloth.
  2. Run it over the Cleaning Paste.
  3. Rub the surface to a polished shine.

The main testimonial from my customers is from cleaning their glass top stoves!  It works amazing!!

At another presentation my host and her guests laughed that I wouldn’t be able to clean her sink.  It was heavily stained from coffee and tea and she mentioned her plan of replacing the old sink at some point in the future.  Within minutes, it was shiny and clean!

The pictures below shows the results:
