Norwex in the News!

A news station in Tennessee put the Norwex Enviro Cloth to the test against a regular microfiber cloth, as well as a traditional cleaner. The Norwex Enviro Cloth was rated a "Wise Buy" by the test, showing that it removed 92% of the e-coli bacteria (while the traditional cleaner removed NONE of the e-coli and the regular microfiber removed 84% of the e-coli bacteria). That's pretty impressive!

Thanks to WMC-TV for the story! Read the full piece here, and watch the accompanying video!

The History of Silver

History of Silver
Throughout history, people have taken advantage of the antimicrobial properties of silver.

The Greeks and Romans stored water in silver as it was believed this kept the liquids fresh.

During the plagues in Europe, wealthy families ate from silver plates and utensils, in the hope that silver might protect them from the disease that was claiming their neighbours’ lives.

The expression ‘born with a silver spoon in the mouth’ had a dual meaning. Not only did it refer to wealth, it also referred to health. People were eating off silver spoons because they knew that an infection couldn’t survive on silver.

Without knowing it people were taking advantage of the natural ANTIMICROBIAL properties of silver.

Today many products are produced using silver to give antibacterial properties to that surface. Silver antibacterial socks, silver soap, silver-lined curtains in hospitals, silver-lined bandages for treating burns, silver-lined bandaids, silver toothbrushes, etc.

How Silver works
Silver interrupts a cell’s ability to form chemical bonds essential to its survival. Bacteria, viruses and fungi need the bonds for their oxygen metabolism.
The Antibacterial agent is physically embedded inside tiny microfibers.
The silver-based agent that Norwex uses is based on micro, not nano-technology.

Our Enviro Cloths are also available in a handy travel pack, perfect for taking anywhere! A great way to share our products with a friend, keep in the car, use in restaurants to wipe down a table, or to pull stains out of vehicle fabric.

Norwex Travel Pack EnviroCloth® - blue, green, graphite, champagne, rose quartz


What makes our microfiber superior is the fact that each Enviro Cloth contains over 2.9 million meters of fiber. The antibacterial Microfiber cloth removes dust, dirt and grease from all washable surfaces using water without chemicals.

Step 1: Moisten the cloth under running water, wring out, and fold the wet cloth as many times as you can and wring out all excess water. This is very important in order to achieve streak-free surfaces.
Step 2: Wipe the surface.
Step 3: Flip over and continue to do this until all surfaces are used. Rinse the cloth in warm water when necessary and continue cleaning.

Description:
Superior-quality microfiber combines with our unique BacLock®* antibacterial agent to create a multipurpose cloth that can be used wet or dry to clean everything. The superversatile EnviroCloth is the perfect replacement to chemical-laden, all-purpose cleaners, and eliminates the need for wasteful paper towels, so it’s also more sustainable for the environment! Highly effective and easy to care for; between launderings, simply rinse, wring out and hang to dry. Available in five colors, allowing you to color-code for different purposes or rooms.

Features and Benefits:
• Norwex Microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.
• Used dry for dusting, it creates static electricity that lifts the smallest particles of dust and dirt up into the cloth and prevents them from resettling on surfaces.
• Used damp for general cleaning and heavily soiled areas, it picks up everything using water. Cleaned surfaces become so clean that new dirt and dust do not return as quickly.
• The BacLock* in the cloth—our exclusive micro silver antibacterial agent—goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.
• Cleans any surface that would normally be cleaned with soap and water or chemical cleaners, including bathrooms (taps, sinks, tubs, counters, toilets and more), walls, windows,  doors, vehicles, toys, tools, kitchen appliances and surfaces, outdoor furniture and much more.

• Eliminates the need for paper towels, creating less waste and less paper dust in the home
• Eliminates residual “chemical muck” left behind by typical cotton cloths and harsh cleaning products
• Traps dust and grime in the cloth and leaves surfaces cleaner, so you won’t have to clean as often
• Rose quartz and champagne EnviroCloths are made from 70% recycled materials!

Suggested Use:
• Use dry to attract dust and dirt particles, and wet to wipe away dirt and debris from all washable surfaces using only water.
• Fold the cloth so you have eight clean sides to work with. Wipe with even strokes.
• When using on easily scratched surfaces such as brushed stainless steel,  rst test Norwex Micro ber on an inconspicuous spot.
• Not for use on anti-glare surfaces.


Norwex Window Cloth
The beauty of glass is that it allows light to travel through it easily. Traditional cleaners will reside on the glass and restrict light from passing through. While it is important to have a cloth that will remove greasy marks it is also important to make sure that nothing is left behind that causes streaks or smears.

A smear is a contaminant (something not meant to be on the surface) that has been spread in an effort to remove and clean the surface that now causes distortion of light. It is invisible in low light situations like internal glass or mirrors; however, in high light situations the distortion of light is noticeable and reveals where you have attempted to clean.

With the Norwex Window Cloth, there is no need for chemical glass cleaners - just use water. The antibacterial properties of this cloth makes it great for use in your entire home, such as:

  • Windows
  • Mirrors
  • Bath tubs
  • Shower doors
  • Vanity units
  • Crystal
  • Glass tables
  • Granite countertops
  • Brushed and stainless steel
  • Chrome
  • Knick-knacks and all other shiny surfaces in the home
Norwex Window Cloth - purple, pink opal


To clean glass: To remove fingerprints simply spray with water and wipe with the window cloth.
To clean stainless steel: Use slightly moist (very little water) and wipe the stainless steel in the same direction as the grain. For heavily-soiled fridges, first clean with a moist Enviro Cloth, then finish with the Window Cloth in the same direction as the grain.
To clean granite countertops: Clean countertops first with the Enviro Cloth and water. Then finish
the counters with the Window Cloth unfolding to a new side to ensure you are always finishing with a dry, clean area of microfiber.
* Do not use on anti-glare coated surfaces

Step 1: Spray water on the glass using the Norwex Spray Bottle or wipe with a moist Enviro Cloth to remove dirt and debris
Step 2: Fold the cloth to give you sixteen sides and start wiping.
Step 3: Continue to unfold the cloth to new sides to ensure you are finishing the surface with a clean
side at all times.
Step 4: For heavily-soiled glass or counters, clean first with the Enviro Cloth and water, then finish with a dry Window Cloth.

Getting all the surfaces in your home as clean as possible, as quickly as possible, can be challenging. In addition, many of today’s popular cleaners contain harsh chemicals that can make your family sick. And using paper towels to clean adds to the problem of overloaded land lls and deforestation. Clean more safely, quickly and thoroughly using super- absorbent Norwex EnviroCloths. You’ll save time, money and the environment using only water—reducing land ll waste, eliminating chemicals in waterways and protecting your family’s health as you cut down on dust and reduce chemicals in your home.

Did You Know?
• The average household spends $600 – $800 a year on cleaning products and supplies. Norwex Microfiber can help signi cantly reduce the use of cleaning products and supplies.
• 3,000 tons of paper towel waste are created every single day—that accounts for 51,000 trees and 60 million gallons of water, per day!
• Most paper towels are bleached. Drying your hands with them can leave your skin rough and cracked.

All Norwex Microfiber products carry a two-year warranty. Please visit www.norwex.com for complete details.
*Contains BacLock, an antibacterial agent for self- cleansing purposes only. The agent is solely designed to inhibit odor from bacteria, mold and/or mildew growth within the product.

The dirt on dirt

Residuals attract dirt.

When surfaces are left moist and wet after cleaning, only the water component of your cleaning solution evaporates leaving brokendown dirt, grime and chemicals to dry on the surface.

The definition of CLEAN is to remove all forms of contaminants from a surface leaving it in as original condition as possible. This means that in order to leave surfaces CLEAN we cannot leave residuals behind on them.

Residuals determine the frequency of needed cleaning. The fewer residuals left behind on a surface the better, as residuals determine how often that surface should be cleaned.

Clean doesn’t smell!

True cleanliness does not smell.
It will take most people quite a while to accept this, as their sense of smell may make them think that they have not cleaned with strong enough chemicals. If they had used only microfiber and water, there is no smell.

The traditional method of cleaning with chemicals and cotton cloths results in breaking down dirt and grime and spreading it over the entire surface. This may provide a visual appearance of clean. However it can actually cause your surface to be hygienically more contaminated at a microscopic microbial level.

What are the effects of chemicals and disinfectants?

They can harm our bodies and affect the environment.

After use, most cleaning chemicals end up making the journey from our homes down the sink, toilet and drains into our environment via the sewer or waterways. Chemicals can have harmful effects on our environment including other living things.

If many of these chemicals are not good for our environment should they really be used in our homes or around our bodies?

With the Norwex chemical-free antibacterial microfiber system you don’t breathe, touch or ingest chemicals. Dirt, dust and grease are removed instead of spread around your home, creating a cleaner indoor climate, and reducing allergens.

Today, preserving the environment for our children and future generations is extremely important. With Norwex you have the opportunity to use fewer chemicals, reduce your environmental footprint and look after your family’s health while at the same time preserving the environment for future generations.

Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder

Updated 1/16 - Please see the info on our new and improved updated Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2016/01/ergonomic-toilet-brush-and-holder.html

Norwex Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder

PROBLEM: After repeated use, nylon toilet brushes can accumulate bacteria in the holes that hold the bristles. These bacteria can potentially spread to other items in the bathroom. Bristle tips will begin to fray and soften over time, which takes away the ability to effectively sanitize the bowl and remove bacteria. Metal brushes can rust and scratch, and it’s sometimes difficult to clean well under the rim with them.
SOLUTION: The Norwex Ergonomic Toilet Brush rinses completely clean with only water. The rubber bristles will not scratch or rust over time, which means a cleaner, longer-lasting brush. And the special rim extension is designed to clean the hard-to-reach area under the rim, quickly and easily.

Norwex Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder


Description:
Constructed of durable ThermoPlastic Rubber (TPR), the Ergonomic Toilet Brush thoroughly cleans the toilet bowl without scratching the surface. The cylindrical-shaped head reaches into the trap, while the extension is specially designed for thorough cleaning under the rim. The plastic handle has an ergonomically designed grip with a touch of rubber for a comfortable and easy hold. The brush head is designed for use on both sides of the brush so you don’t need to flip it to complete your cleaning task. After rinsing, store the Toilet Brush in its caddy, where it air dries quickly just above the caddy’s base.
13.4cm x 44.1cm / 5.3” x 17.4”

Key Features:
• Compact, space-saving design
• Easy to use
• Made of TPR—ThermoPlastic Rubber is more durable and flexible, and it won’t wear out as quickly over time as standard nylon materials.
• Rubber bristles are spaced far enough apart to allow for quick rinsing and drying, yet close enough together to clean thoroughly.
• Won’t rust or scratch porcelain.

Key Benefits:
• Ventilation space between stored brush and the holder helps prevent accumulation of mold and mildew.
• Contoured grip handle is designed to help your reach.
• Special extension is designed to make cleaning under the rim quick and easy.
• Angled design makes cleaning easier.
• No metal to rust.

How to Use:
• Squirt a light stream of Blue Diamond All-in-One Bathroom Cleaner around the inside bowl area. Use the Toilet Brush to clean the entire toilet, including under the rim and on the top edge of the bowl. Allow to work for 3 to 5 minutes and then flush clean

Norwex Ergonomic Toilet Brush and Holder, with Blue Diamond


TIP: Flush your toilet daily, whether it is being used or not. Allowing the water to sit in the bowl can cause mildew and hard-water stains.

Sanira Toilet System

Discontinued 3/19

Through the Sanira Toilet Brush System, Norwex provides an ingenious system to clean toilets without harmful chemicals. Some highlights are:
  • It is made from environmentally-friendly recyclable raw materials with no metal parts
  • The brush is made without cavities reducing chance of bacterial load remaining in crevices
  • The bristles are specially designed to shed water and discourage bacteria growth as well as using the cleaning solution more effectively
  • A channeling system in the brush dispenses the cleaner, reducing the amount needed to only 3-4 ml, compared to 30 - 40 ml for a traditional cleaner
  • Highly biodegradable cleaning solution and safe for use with septic systems
Norwex Sanira Toilet Brush System



To use:
Cut off the top cap of the Sanira solution.


Reassemble the system by placing the bag back into the bottom container. Place the container with
the hole in it on top, and place the brush into the container with the hole in it.


Gently push down on the brush until the solution fills the channels of the brush and starts to drip onto
the bristles of the brush. Empty as much water out of the bowl as possible by pouring a few litres
into the toilet. The benefit is less cleaner is needed and if it isn’t diluted none of it is wasted.


Clean the sides of the bowl first so the solution can work undiluted. Clean toilet, rinse brush off with clean water, and place back into the container.


Using only 3-4 ml once a week, the solution will last approximately 1 year.

What are some of the special benefits of the Sanira Toilet Brush System?
The Sanira Toilet Brush System is a product that is environmentally friendly, all parts are recyclable, and the soap and descaler agents are biodegradable. The soap is made from vegetable sources and has properties that prevent bacteria growth. In addition, you need to use only a very small amount of the cleaning agent in the toilet making it last for a very long time. It’s a great product for saving you money and saving the environment. The system’s toilet brush is made in one piece, with channels in the bristles, preventing the growth of bacteria and making it easy to keep the system clean.

Will the Sanira Toilet Brush System remove rust stains?
The Sanira Toilet Brush System is great to clean the toilet, but it is not formulated to remove rust or calcium.

Norwex Crystal Deodorant

I gave up conventional antiperspirant/deodorant years ago. After I was diagnosed with melanoma, I became very careful about what products and ingredients I used on my skin, and every antiperspirant/deodorant I've encountered contains some of the ingredients I avoid.

I began using crystal deodorant instead, and have been happy with it for years, even in the southern humidity! The great part is, one stone will last YEARS. It is breakable, so be sure not to drop it - if you do though, the smaller pieces are great for travel.

Norwex Crystal Deodorant Stone


The Norwex Crystal Deodorant Stone is made from crystallized natural mineral salts which kill odor causing bacteria. It contains no harmful chemicals, oils, perfumes or emulsifiers. The ammonium alum in this product cannot penetrate the skin, and therefore, does not enter the body or clog the pores. Your body is allowed to perspire naturally, yet the salt inhibits the growth of bacteria, therefore preventing body odor.

TIP: The Norwex Crystal Deodorant is GREAT on mosquito bites!

To use, just moisten top of stone and use on underarms. Rinse under water. Before replacing lid, wipe dry to prevent deodorant eroding at the base. I have the best luck using it immediately after a shower. It will not get rid of existing odor, but it will prevent odor by inhibiting the growth of bacteria - so ideally the application immediately after a shower should take care of the underarm body odor.

TIP: Great for razor burn, too!

FAQ
What is the Crystal Deodorant made of?
The Norwex Crystal Deodorant is made from crystallized natural mineral salts which kill odor causing bacteria. It contains no harmful chemicals, oils, perfumes or emulsifiers. It's just pure and natural! To use simply wet the crystal and generously apply to underarm area.

Why does my Crystal Deodorant have a smell?
Rinse the Crystal Deodorant after each time you apply it. If the odor does not go away, dilute a little Odour Eliminator and rinse the Crystal Deodorant using this solution, which will help to break down the odor.

Out to Lunch Snack Bag and Sandwich Wrap

*Discontinued

Did you know food packaging alone accounts for nearly 32% of all household waste in the U.S.? According to the U.S. Department of Education, about 20 million students bring their lunch to school each day. Multiply 20 million packed lunches a day, by five days and you get 100 million a week! If each lunch has 3 plastic baggies, that’s 300 million plastic baggies potentially in the garbage. The effect of all this plastic in our landfills and waterways is devastating.

It is one of my goals for my kids to have waste-free lunches. Every once in a while something "easy" lands in their lunch boxes (like a frozen tube of yogurt), but mostly, we are waste-free. Our lunch boxes and bags really help with this initiative, and Norwex has just made it even easier!

Problem: Disposable “one time use” plastic wraps and bags may contain harmful chemicals like BPA, DEHA and other plasticizers, and they increase the amount of trash that ends up in our landfills and oceans every year.
Solution: The Norwex Out to Lunch Sandwich Wrap and Out to Lunch Snack Bag are both reusable, which can mean less trash in our landfills. Also, because they are made from recycled LDPE #4 plastic, and certified free from BPA, DEHA, phthalates, PVC and lead, it helps radically reduce chemicals not only in your body and in your kids’ bodies, but in the environment as well.

Both the Out to Lunch Sandwich Wrap and Out to Lunch Snack Bag are tested by CPSIA-accredited testing laboratory to meet FDA requirements and CPSIA standards. The manufacturer also uses an independent lab to test products to ensure consistent and non-toxic quality.

Key Benefits:
  • Reusable—reduce waste by eliminating disposable food packaging from our landfills and oceans.
  • Save money by reducing single-use packaging and packaged foods.
  • Eat healthier by packing homemade, non-packaged foods—and by keeping your food on a mat, and off a potentially germ-laden table.
  • Store food more safely by packing it in non-leaching, non-toxic containers.
  • Promote sustainability by giving gifts that send the message of reuse.
  • Highly recyclable
  • Manufactured to meet all FDA requirements to be in contact with food.
Key Features:
  • Made from recycled LDPE #4 plastic
  • Certified non-leaching
  • Free of BPA, DEHA, phthalates, PVC and lead
  • Fun design appeals to all ages and serves as an environmentally friendly conversation starter.
  • 1-year warranty

Why NOT to use Dryer Sheets or Fabric Softeners

Although they may make your clothes feel soft and smell fresh, fabric softener and dryer sheets are some of the most toxic products around. There are usually warnings on fabric softener and dryer sheets not to use them on children's sleepwear.

According to this article published on CBS, a small study suggests scented laundry items contain carcinogens that waft through vents, potentially raising cancer risk.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504763_162-20097302-10391704.html

PubMed.gov has many peer-reviewed articles based on studies conducted to determine toxicity of fabric softeners, such as this one: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10872633 that found "that some commercial fabric softeners emit mixtures of chemicals that can cause SI (sensory irritation), PI (pulmonary irritation), and reduce midexpiratory airflow velocity in normal mice. The results provide a toxicological basis to explain some of the human complaints of adverse reactions to fabric softener emissions."

Some of the harmful ingredients commonly found in liquid or sheet fabric softeners include:

  • Chloroform: This substance was used as an anesthesia in the 1800s up through the early 1900s when its potential for causing fatal cardiac arrhythmia was discovered. A carcinogenic neurotoxin, it is on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list. Inhaling its vapors may cause loss of consciousness, nausea, headache, vomiting, and/or dizziness, drowsiness. It may aggravate disorders of the heart, kidneys or liver. Its effects worsen when subjected to heat.
  • A-Terpineol: Causes Central Nervous System (CNS) disorders, meaning problems relating to the brain and spine such as Alzheimer's disease, ADD, dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, seizures, strokes, and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Early symptoms of CNS problems include aphasia, blurred vision, disorientation, dizziness, headaches, hunger, memory loss, numbness in face, pain in neck and spine. A-Terpineol also irritates the mucous membranes and, if aspirated into the lungs, can cause respiratory depression, pneumonia or fatal edema.
  • Benzyl Alcohol: This upper respiratory tract irritant can cause central nervous system (CNS) disorders, headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness and dramatic drops in blood pressure.
  • Benzyl Acetate: This substances has been linked to pancreatic cancer. Its vapors can be irritating to eyes and respiratory passages and it can also be absorbed through the skin.
  • Ethanol: Another fabric softener ingredient which is on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list and linked to CNS disorders.
  • Pentane: A chemical known to be harmful if inhaled.
  • Ethyl Acetate: This substance, which is on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list, can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract. It may also cause severe headaches and loss of consciousness, as well as damage to the liver and kidneys.
  • Camphor: Another substance on the EPA's Hazardous Waste list. It is easily absorbed through body tissue, causing irritation of eyes, nose and throat. Camphor can also cause dizziness, confusion, nausea, twitching muscles and convulsions.
  • Linalool: A narcotic known to cause respiratory problems and CNS disorders. In animal testing, exposure to linalool has resulted in death.
  • Phthalates: Used in scented products to help the scent last longer, phthlates have been linked to breast cancer and reproductive system problems.
  • Limonene: This known carcinogen can cause irritation to eyes and skin.
  • Also, if you follow a vegan lifestyle, you should be aware that many fabric softener sheets are made using tallow, a form of animal fat.

Manufacturers are aware that the products contain toxic chemicals. The packaging on many brands include a warning that the product should not be used on children's sleepwear. Since some of the same brands also have large images of children and toys, however, consumers may miss the small print message.

Norwex-ing for Schools

Note: This post is in reference to a 2013 Facebook event. 
Join the Facebook Event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/169156173274820/ If you aren't able to view it, feel free to add me as a friend so I can invite you. No hard feelings if you delete me right after ;) 

Short Version: 

  • I'm donating 100% of my (35%) commission of orders placed through this group order to buying Norwex Enviro Cloths for local classrooms. I need teacher referrals who are willing to use the cloths in their classroom, and work with me on proper use of Norwex microfiber, so if you know of someone, please let me know!
  • One person who places an order through this group order, will receive ALL of the host benefits. See below for details!
  • I'll give away at least one (maybe more!) door prizes for participation in this event. Invite your friends, RSVP *YES* and stay tuned for how to earn entries for the door prize!
  • Shop online through this link: <DISCONTINUED - EVENT IS OVER>
  • Start using Norwex, and reduce the use of chemicals in your personal care and cleaning!


Long Version:
The Norwex mission is to radically reduce the use of chemicals in your personal care and cleaning. Norwex has AWESOME products that will allow you to clean FASTER, HEALTHIER and FOR LESS MONEY! No more breathing or using toxic chemicals! You can view my blog for my thoughts on some of my favorite products - http://www.fastgreenclean.com/ - I give my honest opinion and think it is a helpful resource!

I am especially concerned about the chemicals in the disinfecting wipes and hand sanitizers used in schools, and I really want to try to get some Norwex products into some classrooms. I wrote some about it on my blog: http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2013/09/disinfecting-wipesdo-what.html
I can't afford to buy products for donation myself, even at a discount, so I'm thinking this is a good way to start :)

I'll be donating 100% of my commission (35%) on group sales through this party in Norwex products to local teachers. If you know of a local teacher who is interested in introducing some FREE Norwex products to his or her classroom please let me know. I've already donated to my daughter's classroom, so anything from this group order will go elsewhere. The more orders, the more product I can donate, and the more classrooms and students will benefit from reduced exposure to chemicals. If you'd like to purchase items for donation, please let me know. I'm sure there are many teachers who would appreciate it!

That's not all though! I'm also giving away the host benefits to one lucky person who orders - which is pretty incredible to receive hundreds of dollars of free Norwex product for $0 out of pocket! Check out September's Host Benefits here: http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2013/09/september-host-and-customer-specials.html

Norwex Timeless Natural Hand Cleaner

Rather than focusing on the multitude of reasons why we shouldn't be so quick to use alcohol based hand sanitizers, I'm going to focus on a new product from Norwex, and hope you will take the time to research a bit on the downfall of using traditional alcohol-based hand sanitizer, the ingredients, the suggested use, and consider the Norwex alternative!

Norwex Timeless Natural Hand Cleaner is not an antibacterial, which means it kills bacteria. It is antiseptic, which means it inhibits the growth and reproduction of micro organisms. It contains organic lemon, rosemary, and lavender extracts which have natural antiseptic/astringent qualities. Using the Norwex Timeless Natural Hand Cleaner is like washing your hands with soap and water - except it is quick and easy, and you don't need water. We recommend rubbing hands together for 30 seconds to provide the friction that also helps loosen dirt and clean hands.

Norwex Envirowand

PROBLEM: We all have those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies in our homes that seldom, if ever, get cleaned properly. Reaching high, out-of-the-way surfaces and angles can be difficult, so hard-to-clean areas often go ignored.

It attaches easily to the Telescopic Mop Handle to reach high surfaces and those awkward, out-of-the-way areas. Now you can clean even the most hard-to-reach surfaces, tight spots and angles, leaving them dust-free and shiny!

Just slip on the sleeve, bend the wand to suit your need and you’re ready. The ergonomic rubber grip allows for easy, comfortable handling. The dual-sided sleeve constructed of 80/20 polyester/polyamide microfiber slips on the wand, which can then be bent to create multiple angles for all cleaning needs. One side of the sleeve is nubby chenille microfiber, the other is regular microfiber. The sleeve is removable for easy washing. Best of all, the Envirowand

Norwex Kitchen Cloth and Kitchen Towel

Did you know that the average American family uses between 1.5 and 2 rolls of paper towels each week?

Did you know that 13 billion pounds of paper towels are used in the U.S. every year?

Problem
Do you have a dozen different cleaning supplies under your bathroom cabinet, crowding your limited storage space? Most of them probably contain harsh chemicals and some may not even work that well for cleaning stubborn dirt.

Solution
Blue Diamond All-in-One Bathroom Cleaner is a thick, concentrated solution that safely cleans bathroom bowls and basins without strong fumes or dangerous muriatic acid that eats away chrome and metal fittings. Its special formulation allows for deep penetration into surfaces, eliminating odor-causing bacteria and germs as well as dissolving rust stains, hard water scales and soap scum.

How to Use
• Toilets: Squirt a light stream over the inside bowl area, spreading around the bowl and under the rim with the Ergonomic Toilet Brush. Allow to work 3 to 5 minutes then flush clean. Wipe bowl exterior and seat with a Norwex cloth.
• Baths, basins, shower stalls: Pre-wet surface. Apply a light stream on surface and immediately spread with a Norwex cloth. Rinse thoroughly.
• On porcelain surfaces: Dilute 1 ounce of Blue Diamond with 7 ounces of water before using and rinse immediately.

Did you Know?
“Scale” or limescale, also known as calcium carbonate, is the milky white substance that can collect around faucets and drains. It results from mineral deposits left by hard water, and it’s difficult to remove without using abrasives, which could damage the finish of the surface. The natural organic salts and citric acid in Blue Diamond make it just right for the job!

Problem
Hard water can cause unsightly lime and calcium deposits on kitchen and bathroom sinks, fixtures, bathtubs and shower doors. And rust can leave ugly stains on taps, drains and tiles. Common descalers are not the answer. Most contain large quantities of toxic surfactants and dangerous chemical acids that can burn surfaces and damage the environment as they attempt to break down mineral stains.

Solution
Norwex Descaler is both highly effective and environmentally friendly. It provides heavy-duty cleaning and removal of calcium, lime and rust stains as well as stubborn, stuck-on soap scum—in just a few minutes!

How to Use
Spray Descaler on the surface, and let it work for five to ten minutes. Wipe off with a moist EnviroCloth® or Scrubby Corner Cloth before the surface dries. For heavier stains, repeat the process.
WARNING: Do not use on natural stone, such as granite, marble or terrazzo; painted surfaces; metallic glazed surfaces; cast iron; copper or unsealed grouted areas as the natural acids may damage the surface. Not for use in coffee makers or any food-ware product. Always test on an inconspicuous place before using.
