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

Keep Allergens and Pollutants Outside

Keep Allergens and Pollutants Outside

What is the best kind of dirt?  The kind that stays outside!!  I’m Dutch, I was taught to dust… even when I couldn’t even find any.  Our homes are our sanctuary and truly the only environment we can control.  

There’s nothing I love more than entertaining at our home; we are blessed to have many nephews and nieces that have moved into our city to attend university. They are always welcome to come for a warm meal and family time.  With friends coming and going as well, we have a busy home!

Entry mats are a stylish way to keep dirt and allergens from traveling throughout your home.  Norwex has launched a new Entry Mat for your home this fall, thirsty microfiber and polypropylene bristles and all. These features will trap the dirt at the door, as 85% of contaminants are brought into our homes in the first four steps.  The industrial strength rubber backing will hold it in place!

Here’s a few other ways you can prevent unwanted pollutants from entering your home:

1. First and foremost, your mat is your first line of defense. If you wish, you can even keep one just outside your door to wipe your shoes off on, and one inside your door to soak up the remaining moisture from your shoes. Just make sure you’re vacuuming/laundering your mat about once a week to keep it doing its job efficiently!

2. Create a “no-shoes-past-the-mat” policy, simply remove muddy footwear BEFORE reaching the entryway floor. I know some people who have placed a bench nearby to make this easier, my family has adopted the shoe rack system to keep our shoes organized and minimize unnecessary clean-up!

3. Paw prints making a mess? Keep a Norwex EnviroCloth or hang a Dusting Mitt handy at your back door where you let the dogs (or cats) in to readily wipe their furry paws and prevent any messy situations. Nobody likes trying to get mud out of their carpets.

A couple handy suggestions:

  • This mat is the perfect size for your RV.  With the non-slip rubber backing it will hold in place and absorb unwanted moisture.
  • Do you have a pool or hot tub in the back yard?  Place this mat at the door and you’ll appreciate its absorbancy.

Already loving the new Norwex entry mat? We are too! Try out the Norwex Rubber Brush to keep it clean between laundering, or run over your mat with a hand held vacuum.

Did You Know?

  • The soles of your shoes are a major source of transferring chemicals and pesticides into your home.  In fact, most of the grime in our homes originated elsewhere, the bulk of it coming in unnoticed on shoes that often don’t appear to be either muddy or dirty.
  • A good quality entry mat is essential, it will remove much of the contaminants that otherwise would find their way inside your home.
  • The right entry mat can also reduce the time you spend cleaning, it should be about the same width as the door.
  • With unwanted debris, chemicals and other residue from lawn equipment and automobiles, garages and public restrooms on our footwear, we all track unwanted filth into our homes.

Code Red: Mess in the Kitchen!

Code Red: Mess in the Kitchen!

Do you like systems and organization?  I do! I encourage my customers to color-code the microfiber cloths in their home.  When Norwex lovers are asked what is their favorite product,  it is predominantly the EnviroCloth!  This cloth literally cleans up everything and it works amazing… with only water, so there’s no harmful chemical residue left behind– just the real clean.

Since the cloths come in four colors, I have always color-coded our home and have taught my customers to do the same.  It’s a simple system:

Red is our go-to kitchen-cloth.  It’s used for 2-3 days to wipe down the: counters, stove, microwave, exterior of the fridge and interior plexiglass shelving, the table after each meal, finger prints on the dishwasher and watermarks on the facet and in the sink!  This hard-working cloth absorbs spilled tomato sauce, burnt on food, spilled milk or grape juice.  Because you cannot bleach your Norwex cloths, red is a great color to camouflage any accidental staining from your daily kitchen activities!

Blue is the designated color for any heavy cleaning project.  It lives under the kitchen sink and is pulled out for, wiping the floor when unexpected spills happen, cleaning the very dirty patio furniture, wiping the  BBQ or oven, detailing the car, or washing outdoor windows. This way, one cloth does all the extra dirty work, instead of potentially staining every cloth you own!

Green cloths are used to maintain our bathrooms.  Years ago we would squeegee our shower, but inevitably the doors and walls still got very grungy.  Now, after each shower we quickly wipe down the shower stall to prevent soap scum and mineral deposits.  In 10 years since our family was first introduced to Norwex, we have not sprayed any toxic cleaning chemical in our shower.  That said, I don’t expect my family to deep clean after each shower.  So we do use DeScaler for maintaining the tub and floor weekly.  One green EnviroCloth wipes up the shower walls, bathroom counter and mirror for a week. Take a cleaning moment and you won’t need a cleaning day!

Yellow cloths are used for cleaning the toilets. Norwex has an excellent cleaner for inside the toilets, but this cloth is used for detailing the porcelain and seat.  It hangs on the plumbing under each bathroom sink.  It’s always handy if needed.

Friday is Norwex laundry day at our home and with this cloth system it is very simple.  After the cloths come out of the dryer, each cloth is put back where it belongs.  Only the Red cloths are folded and returned to the kitchen drawer, the rest are all returned to be used as intended in their designated areas for another week… until they are laundered again.

At my shows everyone laughs when I ask, “Now what would you be thinking if you found a yellow cloth on my counter when you come over for coffee?”  : )  See…  the system works!  Everything stays where it belongs!  Simplicity my friends!
