What Norwex Cloth Should I Use?

What Norwex Cloth Should I Use?

Norwex has a fabulous collection of cleaning cloths!  Did you know? Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions. All Norwex cloths are constructed with superior microfiber. Lots of them have the exclusive Baclock™ in the cloth that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth in the cloth; some of them have different types of fibers woven with the microfiber for extra scrubbing power. Some are super-soft for delicate surfaces, while others are textured to deal with tough kitchen messes. The Norwex line of microfiber cloths are expertly designed to tackle every job you face in your homes without using chemicals.

Have you ever wondered if you are using the best Norwex cloth for the job?

Let me remove the guessing game and give you the scoop on what cloth is best for what job. Let this post be your quick reference guide when you find yourself wondering if you are choosing the best cloth.

The Norwex Counter Cloths are so new that they are not on the comparison chart. But they are so fantastic, I wanted to include them in this post :).Norwex Counter Cloths

Did you know that most of your Norwex cloths should NOT be used with soap?

Norwex microfiber cloths only require water to do their job effectively.  The reason soap is not advised is because the microfiber is designed to absorb 7 times it’s weight (in water, dirt, debris, grease) but it will absorb soap as well.  This happens because there are open spaces in the fibers created by the splitting process (during manufacturing) that enable the cloths to lift away dust and dirt and absorb several times its own weight. The absorbed soap will coat and clog the pores in the microfibers, making them ineffective and deep cleaning will be required to restore the cloth.  But like most things in life, there are a few exceptions.  These exceptions are designed to be used with or without dish soap (ideally Norwex Dishwashing Liquid). They include:

Norwex Kitchen Cloth

These one aren’t technically cloths, but they are worth mentioning:

usewithsoap

Did you know that Norwex cloths expire? 

Norwex’s superior microfiber is guaranteed for 2 years of service.  Norwex microfiber cloths work hard and have the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.  The microfiber is so ‘micro’ that if unwound, the fibers would stretch 3 million meters.  After two years, they are no longer guaranteed as a chemical replacement. This doesn’t mean you should throw them away… it just means they should be demoted to jobs that don’t required 99% of bacteria removal.  There are lots of jobs like that! For example: garage jobs, the outside windows, cleaning patio furniture, etc.  I do suggest you replace the cloths you use to maintain your kitchen, bathroom, toilet, and any other cloths you use on surfaces that would normally require chemicals, every 2 years!  That way it is guaranteed clean.

Here’s my little riddle to help you remember:

Expired Norwex Cloth Riddle

Ever wondered if you are following the ‘proper care and use instructions’ for your Norwex cloths? 

Caring for your cloths is simple. To maximize the use of your cloths, ensure that you are removing up to 99% of bacteria from the surfaces in your home and prevent your cloths from getting stinky, just follow the instructions below.  Norwex Microfiber Care Tips

I recommend that every 6 months, you deep clean your cloths. This is the best and most simple way to care for and maximize the life of your Norwex cloths.  Read How to Deep Clean your Norwex Microfiber Cloths for all the details.

Norwex’s way of cleaning is radically different!  Because of this, you may need to radically change how you think about cleaning.  Hopefully this post will equip you with the information needed to sort out any confusion between the cloths and help you make the most of your cloths, inform you when it is time to replace your old cloths and teach you about proper care instructions for your cloths.

Do you still have questions? Feel free to leave a comment if you are still wondering about how to make the most of your Norwex cloths.

Norwex’s Pitch the Plastic Special for Earth Month

Norwex’s Pitch the Plastic Special for Earth Month

Pitch the Plastic Norwex Specials

Plastic Pollution in our Ocean

Plastic is a problem. CBC recently reported that “there are more than 79,000 tonnes of ocean plastic in a 1.6 million square kilometre area of the North Pacific Ocean, often referred to as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. That’s 16 times more than previous estimates.”  Plastic is a material that does not decompose.  It never goes away. It does break down into small pieces, called microplastics (pieces measuring less than 0.5 cm in diameter), which “marine life can consume and potentially die from”.  The Ocean Cleanup Foundation commissioned an expedition in 2015 and found 1.8 trillion pieces of microplastics, including “plastic bottles, containers, packaging straps, lids, ropes and fishing nets… that have been accumulating for decades.” In this CBC article, Marcus Eriksen, founder and research director of the 5 Gyres Institute spoke about how the clean up efforts are important, but “not a solution by itself. ” Eriksen and Laurent Lebreton, lead author of Scientific Reports agree that they “would like to see less single-use plastic as well as a focus on cleaning up beaches and shores, before it makes its way into our oceans.”

What Is Norwex Doing about Plastic?

The truth of ocean plastic pollution is staggering… but, I believe that one household, who makes environmentally-friendly choices, does make a difference in the world. When you add up all our households, we do make a big difference! I am so grateful that Norwex recognizes the impact of plastic and is dedicated to helping people make conscience choices to reduce plastic waste.  This month, Norwex’s “Pitch the Plastic Pack” Customer Special provides sustainable solutions to reduce our need for plastic straws, plastic wrap, plastic produce bags and plastic grocery bags.  Isn’t that AWESOME?  Plus, to celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd, Norwex is giving a couple FREE products with some of the specials!!!

Sustainable Sink Set

The kitchen sink is a busy place… from washing dishes and hands, to cleaning produce, to soaking pots and rinsing out the kitchen cloth.  It is great that Norwex has the products to make our sinks sustainable.  The Sink Mats (set of 3) are made of highly-absorbent microfiber and foam that are perfect for placing near the sink to provide a convenient resting place for wet or messy glasses, cups, bottles, toothbrushes and soap dispensers.  They are a perfect “landing pad” for all those wet or sticky objects. The Bottle Brush with EnviroSleeve is a great tool for quickly cleaning bottles, vases, glassware, coffee to-go cups, etc.  The brush is made of flexible and sturdy ThermoPlastic Rubber bristles that do a great job cleaning right to the bottom of your bottle without scratching it.  When paired with an extra-soft EnviroSleeve with Baclock™, it is perfect for delicate items.

Pitch the Plastic Pack

Pitch the Plastic NorwexThis special is packed with sustainability products that can help reduce our consumption of plastic straws, plastic wrap, plastic produce bags and plastic grocery bags. Reducing the use of all these ‘single-use’ plastic products is worth it.  The Produce Bags (set of 3) are made of a washable polyester that don’t leach chemicals, are washable and super durable.  They are the perfect size to bring your produce home, are light enough so your produce can be weighed inside the bag and you can even wash, rinse and store your produce in the bag when you get home. The Reusable Grocery Bag is awesome because it has Baclock™ in the lining, making it the cleanest reusable bag you own.  It is also the perfect size and super durable. The Silicone Lids (set of 2) are constructed with food-grade silicone and are designed to create an airtight seal on food containers.  They keep food fresh, can be used in the microwave and oven (up to 425º F) and won’t hold food odours.  A perfect reusable alternative to plastic wrap and foil.  The Stainless Steel Drinking Straws (set of 4) are a great way to avoid single-use straws because although they are usually recyclable, they don’t usually get recycled. Did you also know? More than 500 million plastic straws are used daily.  They are one of the top 10 debris items ingested by sea life. These straws fit most cups and bottles and even make your drink taste colder… which is perfect for smoothies.  The Norwex Cleaning Brush is the perfect tool to quickly clean out the straws so they are ready to use again. BONUS: When you buy the Pitch the Plastic Pack you will receive a FREE Special Edition Optic Scarf.

Isn’t it amazing that there are sustainable options for the day-to-day choices we make. I empower you to believe that the choices you make do impact the health of our environment.  Even switching from using traditional plastic straws to reusable Stainless Steel Straws would save 38,000 straws from entering the landfill or ocean in your lifetime.

My “job” (which it never feels like) is to education others about the opportunity to clean their homes without chemicals… I get to be part of transforming homes to safe havens.  Did you know? Of the 80,000 new chemicals that have been introduced in the last 50 years, approximately 200 have been assessed for their impact on human health.  This statistic alone makes me thankful for the opportunity I have with Norwex.

Standard Party Starter Kit

As a Independent Sales Consultant you get to be part of the solution to these issues.  To start… you will need product to demonstrate to your clients. Norwex’s Party Starter Kit is FREE and  is worth over $300 and contains top-selling products, business supplies and training materials.  You will be required to sign a contract that you will sell $2000 (retail) in product in your first 90 days of business or you will need to pay $200. Let me show you how you can achieve this first BUSINESS goal and few fabulous things about being a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant:

  • Like I said, the Party Starter Kit is worth over $300!  It includes the Mop System, Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent, EnviroCloth, Window Cloth etc., plus enough business supplies and training materials to get started! On average, a Norwex party sells $500 worth of product.  That means you need to have only 4 parties in your first 90 days to receive the Party Starter Kit for FREE.
  • There are 3 options to Build your Starter Kit. The more product you have to demonstrate, the better.  (more info below on Starter Kit Builders)
  • As a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant, you will start earning 35% commission on your very first sale! That means, you will earn $700 in commission when you sell your first $2000 in product.
  • If your home-based business has a slow start, making it difficult to sell $2000 in your first 90 days, don’t worry, the kit will only cost you $200… still a deal as the product is worth $300.  Here is how to sell your first $2000:
    • Invite all your friends and family across the country (Norwex ships straight to the customer’s home) to your Norwex Launch Party.  You are equipped with the products from the Party Starter Kit, so you can demonstrate products at your first party.
    • Always use social media like Facebook, or simply text the Norwex link to people in your contact list.

In my experience, building your Demonstration Kit is a good idea!  Nothing impacts the guests in attendance of our parties more that than having a consultant who has personally tried and use the product. Norwex is about letting people experience the product and when they do, they will fall in love.

My favourite is the Gold Package Starter Kit Builder. It is stock full of amazing product, has $44 worth of Business Supplies and most importantly allows you to earn the FreshSTART Step 1 ($136 in free product plus the EXTRA $50 Shopping Spree). All the sales you make, even the purchase you personally purchase, (like the Starter Kit Builders) count towards earning your FreshSTART rewards.  Isn’t that FANTASTIC!!!Norwex gives new consultants… only at the time of signing up the opportunity to upgrade their Starter Kit, at a discounted price below the generous 35% off.  Remember, the Standard Starter Kit alone (which is not added into this chart) is also worth $300.

Another FREE Norwex Mop Month for Hosts!

Another FREE Norwex Mop Month for Hosts!

I love my NORWEX MOP!

We have been using the same one in my home for the past 13 years and it is still doing a fine job!!! It is one of my favourite products in the Norwex line up as it harnesses the power of static electricity and water to get your floors completely clean — leaving no chemical residue behind. As a Norwex Host, you are able to take advantage of the Host Rewards Program and receive a variety of efficient, effective, green clean, eco-friendly, natural cleaning products.  The Host Rewards Program is based on three criteria: Total Amount of Guest Sales, Number of Buying Guests and Number of New Bookings.  This month Norwex’s rewards their hosts in 4 different ways…  and these 4 ways can add up to a lot of product, making hosting a party an amazing way to fill your home with Norwex products for free.

Host Rewards – PDF

The first reward – package of various products – is based all 3 criteria: amount of guest sales, the number of buying guests and the number of new bookings.  Please note that there is FREE SHIPPING for all hosts who reach at least the $350 category!!! Let me highlight a few of my favourite products available this month from each category (if you would like more information, click the highlighted products) …

Veggie and Fruit Scrub Cloth – Summer is the time for all the beautiful berries, pitted fruits and melons.  To make sure your favourites are free from dirt, waxes, debris and pesticide residue, use this two-sided cloth to scrub (with the rough side) and polish (with the smooth side) your fruit and veggies. I love this cloth because it saves me time when I prepare carrots.  Simply scrub your carrots and you will find you don’t need to peel them, which is better, as many nutrients are found in the peel.

Superior Mop Collection – As a host, you have the opportunity to earn a FREE Mop System when your party sells $550, has 3 buying guests and 1 new booking!  In my experience, an average party reaches this level.  Let me share a few facts from Norwex’s product information sheet about why their mop is superior. The Superior Mop includes a Telescopic Mop Handle, making it a perfect size for anyone in your family, just twist the handle and adjust it to fit right under your chin.  The aluminum Mop Base that can be locked into position when you are using it to wash more than your floors, like your windows and walls, it also has a velcro fastener to attach to the Mop Heads making them simple to change as needed. The Large Dry Superior Mop Pad is constructed of Norwex Microfiber and uses static electricity to draw and lift even the tiniest particles into the cloth.  Open spaces in the fibers are created by the splitting process to enable the dry pad to lift dust and debris and allow it to absorb several times its weight in water. The Rubber Brush is perfect to clean the Dry Mop Pad, after mopping the floor, flip the mop upside down over the garbage and brush out the debris. The Large Wet Mop Pad has Baclock™ agent that self-purifies the mop so you can use it more than once before cleaning and leaves your floors perfectly clean and streak free.  I love the mop because it is simple to use, light-weight, and actually cleans your floor without leaving chemicals behind. Do you have a baby or little children at home?  You will love that the floor is ready to play on as soon as it dries and I love that our dog Bentley can lick the floor (if he wants) after I mop and it won’t harm him a bit.

The last product I would like to highlight are the Limited-Edition Aqua & Tangerine EnviroCloths. These beauties are constructed just like the regular-coloured EnviroCloths with Baclock™ agent that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth in the cloth. These cloths can be used damp to clean any surface that would normally be used cleaned with soap and water; like, kitchen surfaces and appliances, bathroom surfaces, walls, windows, vehicles etc. The Microfiber is 1/2ooth the size of a human hair, which makes these cloths super-absorbent and able to pick and hold lots of dust, dirt and debris. I always like to remind people to flat-fold your cloth so that you have 8 separate cleaning surfaces… so you get your cleaning done faster. If you already own a collection of EnviroCloths, read this post on how to deep clean your cloths. Both the Aqua and Tangerine are a vibrant and gorgeous colours and if you are like me and like to colour coordinate your cloths according to job, you now have the opportunity to add another cloth.

AquaEnviroCloth

I’m new to the company… but cleaning my house used to be something I’d dread. My hands would always crack and bleed after a day of cleaning. No more with Norwex! ~ Rebecca Austin

I just mentioned a few of my favourites that are available to my amazing hosts this month, but I’m sure you will enjoy the variety of products offered in this reward.

The second reward is all about the Number of Buying Guests. With a minimum of 3 buying guests, you receive FREE shipping and handling; at 5 buying guest, you receive an EnviroCloth; at 8 buying guests you receive a Kitchen Cloth… and so on.  On average, in my experience, when a host invites 40 friends or family members, 8-10 will be able to attend.  I always encourage my hosts to invite EVERYONE that is on their heart so that their party is a success. Why not invite everyone? Everyone cleans their home and deserves the opportunity to do it without chemicals!

The third reward is the Host Free Dollars! It is based on a percentage of the Amount of Guest Sales and gives my hosts the opportunity to choose a product from their wish list. I love this reward, as hosts always have a product (or two) in mind.

 

The fourth reward is simple… with each new party booking, my host receives a Window Cloth.  Who doesn’t want a FREE chemical-free cloth to polish windows, mirrors and stainless steel?

 

Well there you have it for the August Host Rewards!!! I love watching how excited my hosts get when they find out how much product they receive for hosting a party at their home. I sincerely appreciate every host for opening their door and giving me the opportunity to educate them and their friends about a Norwex products and how to make their homes not only clean but clean without chemicals. Take advantage of the FREE Mop Month… it only happens once in a while.
