Hey Friends !
Not my typical post today... but, is there any way we can even get around doing the dirty work ?
Although I love to get a cleaner to do a deep clean of my house periodically, there is something methodical and almost therapeutic about cleaning. In fact, when I am often avoiding my to do list, or doing some deep thinking... Is when I find myself going about to clean the most.
That being said, over the years, especially when I worked full time as a hair stylist, the exposure to the chemicals on my hands, was really starting to take a toll. Although some of the things that I was experiencing is also hereditary - slowly but surely, I have been switching over to gentler products that have little to no chemicals in it.
Although there are some things that I just cannot give up ( have you ever checked out HOW many chemicals are in your make up ? ) I love to find alternative products when possible. Needless to say, when my friend Stephanie, told me about Norwex, I was so excited to check some of the products out !
First up, we headed to the bathroom, where I used the scrubby corner cloth, it is so soft, and absorbent, and is a antibacterial microfiber for wiping and cleaning, with the best part being the scrubby corner for getting under edges into the corners, to clean sticky stubborn stains, and dirt. It is so crazy, but when used dry, Norwex microfibers product an electrostatic charge that attracts even the smallest particles of dirt, grease AND moisture! When wet, these particles are lifted and held inside of the cloth, in the cloth, there is a micro silver antibacterial agent, that goes to work to self purify and inhibit bacterial odors, mold, and mildew growth within the cloth.
Next up, we headed over to my ghastly stove top. Honestly, nothing is worse than when your pot boils over. Needless to say, I thought I needed to throw some elbow grease into this stove top.
But with using the Norwex cleaning paste, it actually wasn't that bad !
It is a environmentally friendly super paste that cleans, polishes and protects chrome, stainless steel, porcelain and similar surfaces in one application.
Cleaning Paste is an environmentally friendly paste that works with a damp EnviroCloth™ to clean, polish and protect chrome, stainless steel*, porcelain and similar surfaces in one application. Safe for use on coffee pots, glasses and most food-ware products. Works great on bathroom tubs and tile, too! Phosphate-free. Comes as a solid.
Next we took to my sink, which was quite similar to my stove top... let's just say that it had seen better days. We used that same cleaning paste in the sink and take a look at this !
I think this next item is probably my favourite item of them all ! Although I try to buy organic when I can, let's face it... There is a lot of crap that gets put on to our fruits and veggies, this next cloth helps get rid of all of that !
The two-sided cloth is perfect for scrubbing and polishing fruit and veggies. Use the rough side for scrubbing and the smooth side for polishing. This cloth is highly effective for removing dirt, waxes and debris.
The thing about these cloths that I enjoy the most is, you dont need to use any other cleaners with them for them to be effective !
The Norwex antibacterial Microfiber EnviroCloth removes dust, dirt and grease from all washable surfaces using only water—no chemicals! Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions. The super-absorbent EnviroCloth picks up dust particles and traps them in the cloth until you rinse it out. Then BacLock™* in the cloth goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.
All in all, I am super pleased with the results that these products have given me, and at no harm to my health!
