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!

Fear No More – Halloween Makeup is a Breeze

Fear No More – Halloween Makeup is a Breeze

With Halloween approaching, the stress of coming up with a great costume for your kids (and yourself!) is always a struggle. I know many parents who are hesitant to allow their children to paint their faces for Halloween.  With worries that their makeup will not only wreck clothes and costumes but also prove to be a nightmare to wash off. Fear no more! Norwex’s multitude of body care products will allow your children’s imaginations to run wild, making you the parents of the year.

Norwex Body Pack cloths are a natural way to remove Halloween makeup with ease, using only water! No more makeup remover will be required! These are also FABULOUS for removing all of your own makeup, even dark eye makeup, including waterproof mascara.  I question what ingredients are in makeup remover, but I know one thing for sure…I wouldn’t drink it in a liquid form.  Instead, let the Norwex super-gentle microfiber pamper your skin and cleanse it, by using only water!

TIP: Many people feel the need to scrub hard with a damp cloth to remove their makeup but, with the Norwex Body Pack that is not necessary. Make sure you rub (gently!)  in an upward and outward motion, leaving lots of moisture in the cloth to prevent overworking your skin. Your cloth should feel wet and heavy, and feel nice on your face while in does its job!!

One of my customers is a delightful clown for kids birthday parties!   She only uses the Norwex Body Pack cloths to remove her plethora of makeup!

With Norwex’s Stain Remover, no magician is needed to clean up stains; this product will do the magic! The spray is given a ‘thumbs-up’ for all types of fabrics and stains, so there’s no problem, no matter the costume! Just rub the Stain Remover on the target area, letting it soak for 1-5 minutes. Then, throw your clothes or costumes in the washing machine, like normal, and let the spray do its work. This product also works great on stains from pizza fingers, spaghetti sauce, grease, blood, and red wine – so you can entertain Halloween evening worry-free, too!
This product is also hypoallergenic, containing no dyes or petroleum solvents, keeping everyone’s skin clean and free from irritations.

There are no excuses to not get creative this holiday season; show me your wonderful costumes on my Norwex Facebook Page!

Why Reduce Your Use of Plastic?

Why Reduce Your Use of Plastic?

Every piece of plastic ever used since its inception is still in existence, most of it is in our landfills.  Here are three reason to cut down on your plastic consumption:

  1. The average photo-degrading lifespan of a plastic item is 200 years. That means that your great-grandchildren’s grandchildren will be around to see the plastic WE consumed. Furthermore, these bits of plastic are easily ingested by animals, and later digested by humans. Not so comforting a thought!
  2. We all know that oil is being consumed en masse.  Twelve million barrels of oil are being used annually to produce plastic bags, in the US alone!
  3. Harmful chemicals such as BPA are often found in water bottles and plastic containers that many of us send our children’s lunches in everyday. BPA is an industrial chemical which is harmful to the brain as well as to the behavior of children.

Plastic and foil food wraps have a bad rap!  They can be a struggle to use, they leach into our food and they end up in the landfills.  Check out this for 25 more reasons to go re-usable!

What percentage of plastic globally would you guess we recycle? 

Sadly only 5%

Unlike many plastic and foil food wraps you may be tempted to stick in the microwave, silicone rubber does not react with food, liquids, and most chemicals. Why does that matter? Plastic and foil food wraps actually leach harmful chemicals such as BPA, into your food.

Norwex’s New Silicone Lids are BPA free, and will not off-gas hazardous fumes over its lifetime, or while in use. Furthermore, they are perfect for keeping hot foods hot while you wait for the kids to come home or food fresh in the fridge for a longer period of time. Not only will you be preventing more waste from ending up in our landfills (the lids can be used over and over!), but you’ll also be reducing your exposure to chemicals harmful to your body!  Sounds like a win-win if you ask me!

Key Benefits:

  • Keeps food fresh longer
  • Helps save on environmental waste
  • Won’t leach chemicals into your food
  • Reusable, so they save you money
  • Safe to use in refrigerators
  • Safe in microwaves and ovens up to 230°C / 425° F
  • Won’t hold food odours
  • Dishwasher Safe

*Note: Highly acidic foods such as tomato based pastas sauce may stain the lids.

My favorite personal use for these lids is covering the pan when frying eggs.  I like my girls to start the day with an egg, we fry them in a bit of coconut oil and the oil always spattered all over the stove top.  These lids work AMAZING for containing the mess.

Loving the lids? Norwex is also offering terrific new packages, including a Pitch the Plastic Pack!
