Super Soft & Extra Gentle Baby Care

Super Soft & Extra Gentle Baby Care

Babies and kids have extra-soft skin and they deserve all of our extra loving care.  Norwex Microfiber cloths and towels are both super gentle and remarkably absorbent.

Many new moms have commented to me that they’ll swaddle their precious baby up in Norwex Hooded Towel after a bath, and by the time they are laying on the change table… they are totally dry!

Norwex Microfiber towels and cloths are quick-drying and embedded with the exclusive BacLock™ agent in the cloth that goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth!

I have three Microfiber recommendations for your child’s skin:

  • Newborns:  The Baby Hooded Towel Set comes with a face cloth in the package.
  • Young Children: The Kids Towel which is vibrant apple green in colour with a sunshine yellow trim.
  • All Ages:  The Baby Body Pack includes a set of three face / body cloths which are extra gentle on skin.  These cloths are excellent for wiping up after meals, bath time, craft time or snack time.
    • These cloths are an excellent replacement for using wipes which contain toxic chemicals.
    • These cloths are also excellent for cleaning babies gums.

Somehow during the past 20 years, wiping a baby’s bottom has turned into a ‘disposable wipe event’.  Years ago, all moms used only cloths and then they laundered them and reused them.  Today we see more diaper rashes, skin conditions and allergies than ever before. Our skin is our largest organ, it is constantly absorbing that which it contacts.  Let’s protect our little ones’ fresh, absorbent, and innocent skin by wiping it with only a cloth and water.  Think twice before you rub it down with something you wouldn’t drink.

Speaking of baby skin, let’s talk about the body washes and lotions available.  Norwex has shopped the world over for you.  Their products come from over 12 different countries.  Our Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Hand Cream are sourced from Germany.  These products are fantastic and will work amazing on your babies and yourself.

Cancer Wake-Up

Cancer Wake-Up

It is often tragedy in our lives that causes us to want to lead healthier lives; tragedy tends to bring about change. Few around the world have been fortunate enough to have been unaffected by cancer, allergies, or disease. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, cancer affected 1 in 87,000. Today, cancer is present in 1 in 3 people, and 150 chemicals found in the home are connected to allergies, birth defect, cancer and psychological disorders*

In 2000, I had my wake up call. My dad was diagnosed with cancer and passed away six weeks later. Born and raised on our family farm, we had all been blessed with perfect health. My dad’s sudden passing was a shock!  We had grown our own vegetables, raised our own beef, grew chickens for meat and eggs, and drank milk straight from the dairy cows. Mom had us ‘canning and jamming’ every fall.  The water in our taps ran off the local glacier.  Our diet would be perfectly described as what is now often referred to as “Clean Eating”.   However aside from preparing our own food, we were unaware that how we tended to some areas of the farm could be harmful to us in the long run. We stained the fences and then washed our hands and arms with farm gas, mixed fertilizer with our bare hands, and inhaled and absorbed all sorts of chemicals inside and outside of our home.

Sir Tom Blundell, Chair of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, said, “Given our understanding of the way chemicals interact with the environment, we are running a gigantic experiment with humans and all other things living”.  And indeed, we are. We are the human guinea pigs of many major chemical companies, and in turn, need to ask ourselves how these products will affect us in the years to come.

Research done by Dr. Dick Irwin, a Toxicologist of Texas A&M University, has proven that “Chemicals have replaced bacteria as the main threat to health. The diseases we are beginning to see as the major causes of death in the latter part of (the 1900’s) and into the 21st century are diseases of chemical origin.”  Thankfully, Norwex allows to us to move forward into a brighter, healthier, and chemical-free future.

Whether you purchase your cleaning products from store aisles stocked with chemical-containing products or from a company like Norwex, it is your choice how to maintain your home and body.  We all are exposed to a myriad of chemicals daily, but the only environment we can truly control is that within our own homes.  Use of Norwex product is an easy way to radically reduce your exposure to chemicals within your home and ultimately improve the health of you and your family.  While we cannot prevent illnesses from occurring, we can certainly be conscientious about the choices we make for ourselves and our loved ones.

It has become my mission to educate home owners that they have other options in the cleaning of their homes.  I believe when consumers are taught that cleaning can be effective and efficient with the use of natural products, they will definitely choose Norwex!

One home at a time, I will spread the word.  As a team of consultants we are on a global assignment to be good caretakers of this earth and to help others do the same.

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.
