Tips to make cleaning quick and easy
Wiping down surfaces
With the Enviro Cloth you can literally wipe down everything with this cloth. Counter tops, appliances, tables, windows, mirrors, floors, carpet stains, base boards, and the list goes on and on. (See review on Enviro Cloths)
Streak Free Windows
One of the things I used to hate to clean was windows and mirrors!! I tried everything and I would have to clean them at least twice to get the streaks out and they still never seemed to get completely clean. Now when I clean, I have more birds committing suicide then ever before….my windows look amazing!
Norwex makes it SO easy to clean windows and mirrors with just 2 cloths, the Enviro cloth and the Window/polishing cloth. Use the Enviro cloth wet (wrung out so it’s just damp) and wash the window first. Then follow up with the Window cloth to dry the window. It will be streak free!
The window cloth is tightly woven microfiber that leaves the surface shiny and sparkling clean. You can also use it on crystal, jewelry and other shiny surfaces.
Little did I know that when I used to use window cleaners, it would leave a chemical residue on the window that would attract dust and dirt and the paper towels would leave lint behind so they never got completely clean. Another great option with these 2 cloths is that you can attach them to our mop system and reach the high up windows. (I will talk about the mop in another post) I am able to clean windows that I was never able to reach unless I hauled in a latter but who wants to do that??
Dusting is one chore that can be very frustrating, you dust the whole house and as soon as your done, dust settles right back onto the surface. If you are like me, you put it off or hope no one notices areas you don’t dust. Lucky for us, Norwex offers a product that makes dusting quick and easy.
The dusting mitt makes dusting your home so easy with it’s thick, terrycloth-like texture that attracts and holds dust. The dusting mitt is dense with plush fibers that keep dust from resettling on the surface. Use the mitt on hard to clean surfaces, blinds and when used wet it can be used to clean window screens. These are also great to throw in your beach bag or car and use to clean off the sand after a day at the beach. You can also purchase 2 mitts to be even more efficient, or purchase the kids size dusting mitt and put your kids to work. They will love it!
Another great product to use to dust is the bendable EnviroWand. It makes cleaning furniture, under the fridge and other hard to reach nooks and crannies a breeze. It can also attach to the Mop handle to reach out-of-the-way places such as high windowsills, ceiling fans, book shelves and picture frames.
The kitchen is one of the most used rooms in the house and also can also be the messiest. To make cleaning the kitchen quick and easy, I use the Norwex Enviro cloth. Hopefully you know a little bit about this amazing little cloth from previous posts. This is the clean everything cloth….literally you can use it to clean everything! Just get it wet, wring it out so it’s damp and wipe away. It will leave everything shiny and clean and will pick up to 99% of bacteria from the surface. You don’t have to use ANYTHING else…just water. I wipe the counters, appliances, inside the fridge and freezer, all of my cupboards, ever the sink. Here is a picture of my kitchen after cleaning it with just the Enviro cloth.
If you are like me and you don’t cook very often, then you don’t need to clean the inside of your oven very often. But if you do, don’t you just HATE to use the oven cleaners or the self cleaning option and fill your home with those awful smelly fumes? I refuse to use those, instead I use either the Norwex Oven and Grill cleaner or the Cleaning Paste. I heat my oven to 200-250 degrees, spray the cleaner inside the oven and let it sit. I use the Spirinet sponge to get the caked on burnt pieces off and then wipe it down with the Enviro Cloth. It’s that easy and safe even your kids can help you!
To clean the sink, you can use the Cleaning Paste as well to get the smudges off. Use the Descaler to get the Calcium lime buildup around the facet cleaned wiped up. Polish the faucet with the window polishing cloth and your sink will look sparkly clean!
Floors and More!
One of the chores I hate to do the most is clean the floors! They get dirty so quick especially if you have young kids and or pets. I used to use swiffers but they can get so expensive, I had to use more then one wet pad just for my kitchen and they left a sticky residue on my floors.
The Norwex Mop System is seriously amazing! It makes cleaning your floors so quick and easy with a Dry mop pad, made of 100% microfiber that is statically charged so it picks up the smallest particles of dirt, crumbs, pet hair and more. It also comes with a Wet mop pad that is used for washing the floor with just water, no harmful chemicals and easy to clean. You also have the option to purchase a tile mop pad with nylon fibers to make cleaning hard surfaces easier.
More Options with the Mop
The Rubber Brush works great to brush the crumbs and dirt off the dry mop pad into the trash can. It also is amazing at getting pet hair off of furniture, rugs, blankets and car seats. Pet owners LOVE this little brush!
You can also purchase the Conversion kit to attach the Enviro and Window cloth to clean hard to reach windows. Also, like I mentioned before, you can attach the Enviro Wand to the end of the mop handle to clean hard to reach areas like ceiling fans and window sills.
Cleaning paste and a toothbrush! It takes awhile if you have a lot of title but it works great!
Carpet and Stains!
Do you have kids or pets…then you have carpet stains! Norwex Carpet Stain Buster is a enzyme-based biodegradable carpet cleaning solution that dissolves and eliminates even the toughest stains while neutralizing odors. Not recommended on carpets treated with scotch-guard.
Another option is to use the Ultra Power Plus Laundry Detergent diluted in water. I use this a lot on my carpets. You can also use this in carpet cleaners and not worry about your kids or pets crawling around on the wet carpet.
If you are like me, you HATE cleaning the bathroom! Especially the showers…I would rather clean toilets then the tub and shower. Now that I have products that make this job easier, I don’t mind it as much.
To do my every week cleaning of the bathroom, I use the Enviro cloth to wipe down the Mirrors, counters and the outside of the toilet. To do a deeper clean, I use the Blue Diamond diluted in a spray bottle with water and spray down the counters, sinks, toilet base and even the Jacuzzi tub. This just gives it an extra sparkle and clean but is not necessary on light cleaning. You can use this full strength for inside the toilet and then scrub with the Ergonomic Toilet brush.
Shower and Bathtub
For tough soap scum, spray the Descaler all around the shower and doors, let sit for about 10 minutes then wipe away with the scrub mitt. You can also use the Cleaning Paste for the floor of the tub and shower and use the spirinetts. The Blue Diamond also works for the walls of the shower as well. That’s one of the many reasons I LOVE Norwex…so many of the products are versatile so you can use what works best for your and what you are cleaning.
Ultra Power Laundry Detergent is highly concentrated, superior stain- fighting powder is 100% biodegradable and free from phosphates and fillers. Designed for both high-efficiency (HE) and conventional washing machines, this formula gets your whites even whiter, your brights even brighter and dissolves grease and grime. Safe on all fabrics, including hand-washables and Norwex Microfiber.
Wool Dryer Balls are a natural fabric softener you use in your dryer. They bounce around to naturally separate and create space between your laundry, allowing the hot dryer air to circulate better and soften fabrics. Made of 100% wool, they help reduce drying time, static cling and wrinkles, all naturally, without chemicals. Use them instead of fabric softener or dryer sheets and radically reduce chemicals in your home.
Dryer Balls reduce dryer time, wrinkles and static by creating space between your clothes as they toss them gently in the dryer, allowing more air to circulate between and among them. And, what’s even better, they don’t contain chemicals or dryer-harming ingredients like most dryer sheets and fabric softeners
Stain Remover works without chlorine bleach or other harsh chemicals to penetrate, dissolve and eliminate a variety of stains on contact. It’s gentle on delicate fabrics and works in all water temperatures. The formula is biodegradable and free of dyes, petroleum solvents and phosphates.
Easy clean up for your pets
Norwex even has products for your cute little fur babies. The Rubber brush works AMAZING at getting pet hair off of furniture, car seats and rugs.
The Lint Mitt works great for getting fur off of cloths and furniture and small enough to keep in your purse or car.
The new Pet Towel is ultra-absorbent that makes bath time a breeze! With it’s built in hand pockets to gently and quickly dry them off and then hang the towel up for quick drying and ready to use again with the self-purifying BacLock agent.
The Pet Mitt fits comfortably on your hand to help make bath time quick and easy. Used wet, it gently cleans your pet, lifting dirt and hair up into the extra-absorbent microfibers. Great for wiping and drying muddy paws at the door. Stitching between fingers provides extra control. Use dry to remove loose hairs.
Hopefully you can sleep tonight after seeing this image…Dont confuse these with Bed bugs, those are completely different. These are Dust Mites that are on mattresses, blankets, pillows, stuffed animals and carpets. They feed on dead skin cells and can cause dust allergies. The Norwex Mattress Spray is enzyme based designed to remove organic material and provide a deep clean. It also has a very refreshing smell so it actually makes your bed smell clean! I love this stuff!
