Norwex vs. Pollen

Lesson in futility.

It's been cloudy, gloomy, and raining here in Greensboro, NC for the past oh, 8 days or so (give or take). Today the sun made an appearance (Yay! Free Vitamin D!). You'd think day after day after day of pouring down rain would have washed the yellow sheen of pollen off my beautiful blue car, but no. That would be incorrect logic, as evidenced by my (still) pollen-covered car.

I bribed the two little ones to have "quiet time" after lunch today. I even offered up a milkshake or smoothie in exchange for their cooperative participation in quiet time. Then I hustled to get my Norwex Car Wash Mitt and Norwex Car Cloth, so I could super-quick clean my car. The pollen HAS to go. I wet the Car Wash Mitt with water in my kitchen sink, squeezed out any excess, and put it on my left hand, and held the Car Cloth in my right hand. Armed with my Norwex, I headed outside to the driveway. I started with the passenger side, and moved my way around the car. It took me exactly 7 minutes and 49 seconds to clean and polish the entire body of my car.

You can see in the picture the pollen (on the left) and the part I wiped with the Car Cloth (on the right). You can also see me thinking I'm all slick taking a picture of my car, without realizing my reflection was in the photo. Whoops.


I swapped out the Car Mitt and Car Cloth for my regular trusty Enviro Cloth (damp with water) and Window Cloth, and headed back out to do the windows. I didn't need to swap them out - the Car Wash Mitt and Car Cloth would have easily done the windows too - but mine were REALLY dirty after washing my car, and I was feeling lazy and not really feeling like spending the extra minute to rinse them out. I did the inside and outside of all the windows on my car. Did you know that kids like to press their dirty, grimy little hands to the windows of the car, to leave a lasting impression of their adorable little handprints?
Have you ever looked at a Honda Fit? It's got these cute little windows in the rear trunk space and these cute little triangular windows in the front side dashboard. They are tiny and hard to reach. In the two years I've owned my car, I'm pretty sure mine have never been cleaned...until today. In the end, it took me less than five minutes to wipe all the windows (inside and outside!) clean with the damp Enviro Cloth, and polish them to a streak-free shine with the Window Cloth. I even wiped down the dashboard, mirrors, and the center console in the front. That means in under 15 minutes I had a CLEAN car, using only water! (The torn up tissue and crumbs in the backseat are going to have to wait for another day...)


 Clean car, and check out all that dirty pollen on my Car Mitt and Car Cloth!


The best part? My car is parked under a beautiful tree, which is "snowing" pollen, as my kids like to call it. Guess what? That pollen is falling all over my clean car.

See my pretty clean car, underneath that beautiful tree? 
Yes, that is the same tree that is causing my car to be covered in pollen. 

Next time, instead of "quiet time" for the kids, they can wash the car. No buckets, no hoses, no soap, and no toxic chemicals needed. Just a few Norwex Cloths for each of them, and they can go to town.


P.S. These products would be great for anyone who has a car. I think about how much money I have spent on car washes ($8 to go through the automatic car wash, and that's just the exterior!) and this took me hardly any time at all. It was easy, quick, and didn't require any cleaners or chemicals - just water. I didn't need buckets, sponges, soap, or a hose. And now that I know how easy it is, and how safe it is, the kids can do it too. Sounds like some warm-weather fun in our future!

Norwex in the news!

Norwex is in the news!

A News station in Madison, Wisconsin puts Norwex to the test. See for yourself what they had to say.

WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

or the direct link: http://www.wkow.com/story/22164393/2013/05/05/norwex#.UYrNTzTC1gl.gmail

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Institute for Biology Education helped with the testing of how effective the Norwex microfiber cleaning cloth performed using a Petri dish. "Based on one sample test, the Norwex cloth was just as effective as the conventional cleaner. The bacteria was minimal in both of the Petri dishes."

The testers in the video segment seemed to like the Norwex Enviro Cloth and Window/Polish Cloth. They were impressed by the "butter test" (watch the video to see it!) and it was equally as effective as traditional chemical cleaners.

The reason the testers didn't LOVE the Norwex products? Because they didn't leave a "clean" smell.
What does this mean? Is it truly a downside?

The bottom line is, CLEAN DOES NOT HAVE A SMELL. Norwex cleans your home. Traditional chemical cleaners are toxic, and leave behind residue, fragrances, and other harmful substances. We need to break the cycle of thinking that clean has a smell! Read my other post about that here: http://www.fastgreenclean.com/2013/05/household-cleaners-chemicals.html

Direct from the Norwex website:

We realized early on that household pollutants negatively impact our health and our environment. Most of the chemicals in cleaning and personal care products that people are exposed to every day have never been assessed for their impact on human health. Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest ranking environmental health problems in America with chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside. Research and information on the health effects of manufactured chemicals has not kept pace with their development and use. 
  • In the last 50 years, the global production and use of manufactured chemicals has increased substantially. More than 80,000 new chemicals have been created. 
  • Indoor air pollution is one of the top five highest-ranking environmental health problems in America. 
  • Evidence shows homes have chemical levels up to 70 times higher than outside. 
  • Most of the chemicals that people are exposed to every day have never been assessed for their impact on human health. 
  • Parabens utilized in personal care for decades have been shown to have potential harmful effects. 
What we do know is the harm chemicals have on humans is extensive. Most concerning are the growing links to chemicals that surround us in everyday life. They are linked to serious diseases such as birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities. Many today believe the extensive use of chemicals indoors contributes to many of our ‘modern’ diseases such as allergies and asthma. 
Our mission at Norwex is to improve quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning. In addition, the Norwex products make cleaning faster and more cost effective than traditional cleaning products.

Household Cleaners - Chemicals

Did you know that many household cleaners contain formaldehyde, phenol, or both? 

Formaldehyde is a known cancer-causing agent. It damages the neurological connectors in the body. You may know it as the embalming fluid used for the deceased. It is used in plastic food containers and sandwich bags. It is also an eye, nose, throat and lung irritant. Exposure can cause burning or watery eyes, skin reactions, ear infections, headaches, depression, asthma, join pain, dizziness, mental confusion, nausea, disorientation, phlebitis, fatigue, vomiting, sleep disturbances, or laryngitis. Formaldehyde is commonly found in drugs, mouthwash, hairspray, cosmetics, cleaning products, perfumes, shampoo, air fresheners, toothpaste, laundry spray starch, antiperspirants, and more. P 

Phenol is an extremely caustic chemical that can cause central nervous system damage, pneumonia, respiratory tract infections, heart-rate irregularities, kidney and liver damage, numbness, vomiting, and can be fatal in some cases. It is commonly found in air fresheners, hairspray, mouthwash, aspirin, solvents, acne medications, cleaning products, detergent, furniture polish, all-purpose cleaners, cosmetics, and more. (Sources: Toxic Household Chemical Facts and Statistics by Karen Hanrahan, 2009; various internet websites)

If you use any of the following traditional commercial cleaners, you're exposing yourself to toxic household chemicals:

  • air fresheners
  • bleach
  • carpet shampoo
  • upholstery shampoo
  • dishwasher detergent
  • drain cleaners
  • furniture polish
  • mold and mildew cleaners
  • oven cleaners
  • dishwashing liquid
  • antibacterial cleaners
  • laundry detergent
  • laundry stain removers
  • fabric softeners
  • dryer sheets
  • toilet bowl cleaners
  • bathroom tub and tile cleaners
  • and many many more 
Did you know?
Toxic household chemicals can be found in every organ of your body in just 26 seconds after exposure. They are stored in your body’s fat cells for long periods of time causing long-term damage. (Source: Environmental Protection Agency)

Chemical exposure has many consequences.

  • Autism rates are now 1 in 88 and the rates are rising. Although there is no one known cause of Autism, it is thought that one of the causes may be environmental (such as exposure to chemicals-both inside the house and out).
  • Today, Children have chemical exposures from birth that their parents didn’t have until they were adults. Because children are exposed to toxins at an earlier age then adults, they have more time to develop environmentally triggered diseases and disorders such as asthma, cancer, autism and ADHD. (Source: Environmental Policy and Children’s Health, Future of Children, 1995)
  • Since 1950, at least 70,000 new chemical compounds have been invented and dispersed into our environment. Only a fraction of these have actually been tested for human toxicity (Source: Raising Children Toxic Free, Herbert Needleman, MD, Philip J Landrigan, MD)
  • At least 150 chemicals found in the home are connected to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological disorders. (Source: Consumer Protection Agency)
  • Out of 2,435 pesticide poisonings reported in a one-year period, over 40% were due to exposure to disinfectants and similar cleaning products in the home. (Source: State of California Study) 
What does this mean? What can you do?
Start small. Take baby steps. Work to protect yourself, your family, your pets, and your friends.

The Norwex mission is to "improve quality of life by radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning."

Educate yourself about what you're exposing your body, your children, and your pets to. Make small changes; even small changes will have an impact!

Norwex Mop

Do you hate cleaning your floors? Are you looking for an easy and extremely effective method for cleaning your wood floors, laminate, and tile? Tohe Norwex Mop can solve all your woes!

To get started with the Norwex Mop, you'll need the telescopic mop handle and mop base. The handle is adjustable in height (it should be as tall as your chin for proper use) so that you can expend the least amount of energy while mopping your floors. It's adjustable from 98 cm to 160 cm to accommodate a large variety of users - just twist to the proper height! The mop base is extremely durable and comes in two sizes - small and large - to suit your cleaning needs. It easily snaps into the telescopic mop handle, and can freely rotate or you can use the easy locking mechanism to keep the base firm when washing walls. Velcro® strips secure the Mop Pads (described below) to the base, and rubber edging protects walls and furniture.

Norwex Telescopic Mop Handle and Mop Base


The Norwex Mop Pads come in both dry and wet options. Our dry mop pads employ a static charge that attracts dust to the mop like a magnet. They are extremely efficient for cleaning floors, ceilings, walls, ceiling fans, and high windows. The static charge attracts dirt, dust, pet hair, crumbs, and micro particles like a silent vacuum cleaner, and prevents the particles from flying through the air and being displaced.

Dust from outside can enter your home in many ways - generally, the less dust in your home, the fewer allergens you and your family are exposed to. Inside the house, dust is produced by:
  • Dead skin cells
  • Food and plant fibers
  • Pet dander and hair
  • Dust mite feces and dead dust mites
Routinely dry mopping will significantly minimize the amount of dust on your floors that could be picked up by airflow and carried to all other surfaces in your home.

Norwex Mop Pads


Norwex has two dry mop pads - the Regular Dry Mop Pad, which is made of 100% polyester, and comes in two sizes, small (5"x12") and large (5"x20"). The Superior Dry Mop Pad is great for large flooring areas, especially where there are children and pets. It is 100% microfiber, and will pick up even the smallest particles of dust, dirt, pet hair, and crumbs. It also comes in size small (5"x12") and size large (6"x19"). These dry mop pads have a thick pile, and easily attach to the Velcro® on the Mop Base. You should always use a Dry Mop before using the Wet Mop. Regular use of dry mopping will preserve hardwood and tile floors, and reduce the wear and tear on surfaces. To use it, start by dusting the edges from the furthest point in the room back toward the exit or door, then move the Dry Mop in a figure 8 pattern, keeping the leading edge of the mop forward at all times. The rotating mop base makes this easy and allows you to reach hard to access areas (including under furniture, tables, and appliances)! Following this pattern will keep all the dust collected on the same side of the mop. 

Dry Mop Pads can be cleaned by shaking them outside, and using it multiple times before laundering. It can also be vacuumed, or (my recommended method) brushed off in the garbage can using the Norwex Rubber Brush. The Rubber Brush is also great for removing pet hair from furniture! Dry Mop Pads should be laundered with other lint-free laundry, and the recommended detergent is Norwex Ultra Power Plus. You should not use bleach or fabric softener.

The Wet Mop Pad is made of antibac* microfiber and can be used on all washable surfaces such as floors, walls, ceilings, and windows. It also comes in two sizes - small (5"x13") and large (5"x20"). Moisten the Wet Mop Pad under running tap water, and wring out well before attaching it to the Mop Base. The mop can then be moved back and forth over the surface. When the friction lessens, you can move it in a figure 8 just like in the Dry Mop Pad description. For difficult stains, spray water on the surface and rub more vigorously, or place your foot on the base to give additional force if needed. The friction will be the greatest the first time the mop is used since the surface at that point will have more dirt. When mopping, do not use soap!

Use the Wet Mop Pads for:
  • Ceramic tiles
  • Porcelain tiles
  • Porous tiles
  • Vinyl
  • Linoleum
  • Hardwood floors
  • Marble
  • Laminate flooring
For laminate and hardwood flooring, always go with the grain. Putting excess water on mop pads can result in streaking; wood or laminate floors need to be cleaned with minimal moisture as using too much water can cause the wood to swell and possibly crack the finish.

Norwex also offers a Tile Mop Pad, specifically designed to clean tile floors. It gives you extra cleaning power wet or dry on hard surfaces. Special nylon fibers are woven into our microfiber pad to minimize effort while removing dirt and debris from tile floors. The Tile Mop Pad is available in small (5"x12") and large (5"x20"). The tile mop pad isn’t just for tile floors though! The zig zag pattern maximizes cleaning power on hard surfaces - tile flooring, textured linoleum flooring, boats, and difficult to clean hard surfaces - it’s perfect for those cleaning jobs where you need a little extra scrubbing power.

To care for your Wet Mop pads, we suggest rinsing wet mop pads in warm water and using them again before being washed. You will find that one mop head will clean your entire floor! It can be used until the front inch of pad shows signs of being dirty. You can brush it off with the Rubber Brush after use. It can be washed with regular lint-free laundry, just do not use bleach or fabric softener as these products will destroy the ability of the mop pad to clean effectively. We recommend using Norwex Ultra Power Plus as your laundry detergent.

As an extra option, Norwex offers Mop Brackets, durable rubber grommets that attach to the mop base, which allow you to convert your Mop to a window or ceiling washer and can be used with a Window Cloth, Enviro Cloth, or Car Cloth to wash and polish hard to reach areas. Please note that when cleaning walls and windows, be sure to use the mop in one direction - push/pull action can flip the mop base, resulting in potentially scratching a surface. For dirty outside windows, clean with a Wet Mop pad first, then follow with the Car Cloth or Window Cloth.

Norwex Mop Base Brackets


Advantages of the Norwex Mop:
  • No pails
  • Use water and a spray bottle
  • Mop lifts and traps dirt & debris
  • Floor dries very quickly
  • Tall, telescopic adjustable handle - no bending!
  • No toxic chemicals
  • Saves time
Why is the Norwex Mop System superior to steam cleaners?
  • Steam can burn
  • Steam does not remove the dirt
  • Norwex Mop is quick and easy, it is lightweight and easy to maneuver
  • Norwex Mop does not use electricity, so there are no cords to trip over
  • Steam mops put out a lot of moisture and can cause hardwood floors to swell
  • Floor warranties may be voided if a steam mop is used because it is harsh on the floors
  • Norwex CLEANS your floors - it does not leave residue or require chemicals
  • Norwex doesn't have a water reservoir that needs to be continuously filled
Need more convincing? Read this article on Consumer Digest about steam cleaners. It states that to sanitize floors, the temperature of the steam has to reach a certain level or it will take longer - and that manufacturers don't always state how long the mop should be in one spot to actually sanitize. On the flip side, if you hold a steam mop in one spot it will discolor and/or warp your floors.


Still have questions? Let me know! I have additional resources on this topic that I am happy to share. Furthermore, if you are local, I am able to travel and demonstrate using my Norwex Mop - I will even use your typical floor cleaning method first, and follow it with Norwex Mop so you can see exactly how much dirt and grime was left behind!

Please note - if you have used other floor cleaning methods in the past, it may take several uses to break down all the residue of your previous cleaners on your floors. A little persistence and time will allow Norwex to bring your floors back to a real clean!

If you have kids at home, the Norwex Kids Mop Package will allow your little helpers to contribute too! Mopping with Norwex makes cleaning fun - and the Kids Mop is in bright colors and appropriately sized for children. The existing small pads will fit the Kid's Mop base.


FAQ
Is there a proper way to clean with the mop?
Always dry mop with the Dry Mop Pad or Dry Superior Mop Pad prior to using the Wet Mop Pad. The yellow mop pads are for “dry” cleaning, and the blue mop pads which are antibacterial are for “wet” cleaning. Be sure to move the mop in a wide figure-8 pattern from left to right in front of you, bringing the mop towards you as you back up so that you will be moving the dirt and debris in one direction. When wet mopping, moisten the mop with clean water before using. If the mop is too wet, wring it out prior to use.

What is the difference between the Dry Mop Pad and the Dry Superior Mop Pad?
The Dry Mop Pad is made of 100% polyester while the Dry Superior Mop Pad is made of 100% Norwex microfiber and boasts all the benefits of microfiber in its ability to pickup and hold the smallest particles of dust, pet hair, micro particles and debris and hold water.

How do I use the mop to clean my windows and polish hard to reach areas?
Attach the Mop Base Brackets onto the top side of the Mop Base and fasten the Window Cloth, Enviro Cloth or Car Cloth  in place by wrapping it around the Mop Base and firmly pressing the cloth into the rubber grommet slits on the Mop Base Brackets. Lock the base by pushing the green lever until it locks into position.

How do I assemble the mop?
Loosen the Telescopic Mop Handle by twisting the upper blue handle to the left. Pull gently to nose height. Tighten the handle by gently twisting to the right. To attach the Mop Base to the Telescopic Mop Handle, depress the green bumps on the Mop Base and slide the Telescopic Handle over until the green bumps fit into the holes. To lock the base for doing walls and ceilings, push the blue lever until it locks into position. Attach the Wet Mop Pad, Dry Mop Pad, Dry Superior Mop Pad, or the Tile Mop Pad to the Mop Base.
