Norwex Kitchen Cloth vs. EnviroCloth

Norwex Kitchen Cloth vs. EnviroCloth

Norwex has lots of great products!!! Some of them are similar and can create confusion about how to properly care for them and when to use them.  The Kitchen Cloth and EnviroCloth are two of awesome products that can often get confused.  This post is designed to remove any confusion and answer any questions you may have.

How are the Kitchen Cloth and the EnviroCloth the same?

  • Both cloths have the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following proper care and use instructions.
  • Both cloths are woven from microfiber that is 1/200th the size of a human hair.
  • These tiny microfibers, that are woven together, pick up even the tiniest particles and trap them between the tiny microscopic spaces between the fibers.
  • Both cloths are embedded with micro silver called BacLock™ which is an antibacterial agent for self-purifying purposes only. The Baclock™ agent inhibits odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.
  • I have sold Norwex since 2006, this is prior to the launch of both the Baclock™ agent and the Kitchen Cloths.  The Enviro cloth stood alone.  Back then, without Baclock™, the Enviro cloth certainly remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following proper care and use instructions.  The incredible microfiber cleans the surface, the Baclock™ agent inhibits odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.
  • Just by using water, surfaces will be streak-free, polished and shiny!
  • They both hold up to seven times its weight in liquid and grime.kitchen

How are the Kitchen Cloth and the EnviroCloth different?

The weight and density of the amount of woven fiber woven in these cloths is different.

  • One EnviroCloth has 10 million feet or 3 million meters of microfiber in one cloth.  If unravelled, one cloth would reach from Winnipeg, Canada into the Gulf of Mexico.  The EnviroCloth is woven tighter and is 35% more dense.
  • The Kitchen Cloth does not have the same amount of microfiber and is not woven as densely as the EnviroCloth.
    • As the weight of the EnviroCloth is heavier, it absorbs much more than a Kitchen Cloth.
    • As less fiber is woven into the Kitchen Cloth, the EnviroCloth can clean and pick up more particles… for a longer period of time and off a greater amount of surface area.
    • More Microfiber, means more fibers to pick up dirt, grease and moisture giving more cleaning power.
  • The EnviroCloth comes in 4 great colours, including: grey, red, blue & green.  The Kitchen Cloth is available in an assortment of 7 trendy colours, including: pomegranate, latte, sea mist, salmon, blue, graphite & orchid, plus they have matching Kitchen Towels to complement any home decor.
  • Some homeowners like to colour code their home with the tea towels, using one colour for drying hands and another complementary colour for drying dishes.
  • Use the Kitchen Cloth for light cleaning around your home.  Give your surfaces, including; stainless steel, enamel, ceramic, glass, chrome, granite, marble, quartz tile, wood and china, a streak-free polish with just a Kitchen Cloth!
  • For heavier cleaning, or as a chemical replacement around your home, I exclusively recommend the EnviroCloth!Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 11.53.20 AM

Mistaken Identity:

  • Given the name, Kitchen Cloth, many homeowners assume this cloth is intended for washing their dishes in soapy water.  That is not the case.  For the best performance and care, I recommend you exclusively use it with water.  Unfortunately, if you regularly submerge the Kitchen Cloth in soapy water, the soap will coat the microfiber and micro silver Backlock™ agent embedded within the cloth, making it ineffective to inhibits odors from bacteria and your cloth may start to smell.  When customers reach out to me, because their cloths smell… this is over 90% of the problem.

How long are the cloths good for?

This has been the riddle I’ve said to my customers since 2006…

When you get a new cloth, write the date on the tag.  When the cloth is two years old, cut off the tag, the cloth is now a rag!

  • Norwex cloths can be reused around your home for up to 10 years. After two years, the EnviroCloth is still effective for detailing the inside of your vehicle, wiping your patio furniture and dusting around the home. But if you want to know for sure that the cloth is being used to its full capability as a chemical replacement and that it still has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions, I recommend you use a cloth that is less than two years old.

Care Instruction:

  • Launder in the washing machine and dryer regularly.
  • Launder with lint-free laundry.
  • Avoid fabric softeners, bleach and other chemical cleaning products.
  • Wash in hot water.
  • For best results use scent-free laundry detergent.

Deep Cleaning Cloths:

  • Put all of your microfiber cloths in a sink or a large pot.
  • Sprinkle a scoop of Norwex UPP Ultra Plus Power Laundry Detergent over the cloths.
  • Pour boiling hot water over the product.
  • Stir a couple times and allow it to soak.
  • Repeat this process until your water stays clean after soaking.

How long does the micro silver last?

The micro silver is embedded into the cloth.  It can not be laundered out and it can not separate from the Microfiber.  Read this post:  How is Silver Embedded?

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.

EnviroCloth — New & Improved!!!

EnviroCloth — New & Improved!!!

Isn’t it wonderful when something fabulous gets even more fabulous? The Norwex number one, top-selling item, the EnviroCloth that started Norwex, is now New and Improved !!!

3 things have improved…

  1. COLOUR

For the past nine years I’ve been asked, “what’s with the colour palette for the EnviroCloths???”!!! These cloths have always been available in four colors – red, yellow, blue & green – and now it is available in grey. The grey colour is not only trendy for home decor but it is also practical for hiding stains. It is universal to match any home! The yellow EnviroCloth is now discontinued (that’s okay, it was dedicated for my toilets anyway 🙂 ).

2. MAGNETIC CORNER

Not only is the grey EnviroCloth available in the regular size, it is now also available in a larger size with an added magnet… keeping the Magnetic EnviroCloth convenient and always within reach. Hang it on your fridge, washing machine, barbecue, toolbox, fitness equipment, stroller handle, or simply on your stove. Quick and easy for drying your hands, wiping down a dirt surface, removing streaks and smears, or for drying out the inside ring of your washing machine seal. The magnet makes it quick and easy to hanging your cloth up to dry. This strong magnet in the corner of the cloth will keep your cloth handy 24/7.

3.  MORE MICROFIBER

It gets even better!! For years the EnviroCloth has contained 2.9 million meters of microfiber, which was awesome, but now they are even thicker with more than 10 million feet  / 3 million meters of fiber in every Norwex EnviroCloth.   Making the fiber in each cloth one hundred thousand meters longer.  The fibers in the cloth are still a minimum of  1/200th the size of a human hair.   If you were to unravel the fiber in one cloth, you could reach from Canada all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

You can FEEL the difference. This makes the cloth more absorbent, totally replaces the need for paper towel, it traps dust and grime inside the cloth and leaves your surfaces streak-free and shiny, all with one amazing cloth. The EnviroCloth replaces the need for any toxic chemicals that used to occupy the space underneath your kitchen sink. Just add water to the EnviroCloth and it has the ability to remove up to 99% of the bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.

A FEW USAGE & CARE TIPS:

Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.   But, how old are your Norwex EnviroCloths? Do you know when a your cloth need to be replaced?

envirocloth riddle

Of course, you can still use these older cloths for detailing the inside of your vehicle, wiping down the barbecue or inside your oven, the patio furniture and outside windows. But if you are wanting to clean a surface with an EnviroCloth as a chemical replacement, ensure that the cloth is less than two years old.

You can also use the EnviroCloth dry and with power of static electricity, it will lift small particles of dirt and dust up into the cloth and prevent it from resettling on your surface. Use it damp for heavily soiled areas and it will pick up everything just by using water.

Norwex is the leading distributor of microfiber products globally. Norwex has cutting edge technology in the microfiber industry with micro silver-embedded BacLock™, that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again. Norwex offers one of the most innovative products in the cleaning industry today. The cloths are totally effective to clean your home, just by using water.

The care for the Norwex EnviroCloth is simple. Launder your cloths in the washing machine on a hot cycle with scent-free detergent like Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent and dry them in the dryer with Dryer Balls. Always launder them with lint free clothing articles. Never use fabric softener nor bleach. Never submerge them into soapy water. Only use laundry soap for washing your cloths or deep soaking them.

For heavily soiled or stained cloths, pour boiling water over your cloth in a pot or Pyrex dish. Let it sit and soak for 10 minutes. You can also sprinkle in a little bit of Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent for extra cleaning power. Then launder as usual.

A FEW NEW PRODUCTS:

The thicker improved EnviroCloth is now available in the Travel Pack sets and the Magnetic EnviroCloth.  And don’t forget that it comes in GREY!!!
