- Add Norwex Microfiber products, Norwex Enzyme products, and Norwex Personal Care products to your home to replace the toxic chemical cleaners and personal care items
How Norwex Microfiber works vs. cotton
- Traditional cotton cloth pushes around particles, spreading dirt, grime, and moisture into the surface crevices, leaving it moist and unclean
- Norwex microfiber lifts and collects particles. Used dry, Norwex microfibers produce an electrostatic charge that attracts even the smallest particles of dirt, grease, and moisture, leaving the surface free from everything.
- Norwex microfiber holding and purifying particles - when wet, these particles are lifted and held inside the cloth. The micro silver in the cloth then goes to work with self purification properties.

How Norwex Enzyme Based products work
- Enzymes are chemical substances in animals and plants that help to cause natural processes such as digestion
- Enzymes have a complex three-dimensional surface into which particular substances called substrates fit, like pieces of a puzzle
- An enzyme and its substrate(s) bind tightly together, forming an enzyme-substrate complex
- As a result, a chemical reaction occurs within the active site, forming a harmless substance. That substance then diffuses away, freeing the enzyme to work again
- If dust mites are a problem, consider the Mattress Cleaner. Sprayed just a few times per year, this product eliminates the food source for dust mites and eliminates and removes all organic matter.

- If eczema or dry skin is a problem, consider the Timeless Organic Shea Butter - it helps with everything from poison ivy to sunburns, dry heels and elbows, and even works as an eye cream
- If sensitive skin is a concern, the Body Pack, Baby Body Pack, and Makeup Removal Cloths will allow you to wash your face and body without soaps or cleansers, thus reducing irritation to sensitive skin. They work well for acne-prone skin as they remove pore-clogging excess oil.
- If your skin, or your children's skin is sensitive to laundry detergent or soap, give Norwex Ultra Power Plus a try. It does not contain any fillers or fragrance, and is ideal for sensitive skin, is safe on infant clothing, and is suitable for cold water wash.
WHAT CAN YOU DO RIGHT NOW?
I know it is overwhelming to think of all the chemicals and toxins in your home. My suggestion is to start small. Purchase a Household Package (Enviro Cloth Antibac + Window Cloth Antibac + Dusting Mitt Antibac) and begin using these three items to clean your home. These three products will clean nearly your entire home with just water. They will replace hundreds of dollars worth of chemical cleaning products, and help you create a healthier home for yourself, your family, and your pets.
