A few years ago, I changed my lifestyle and started taking more of an interest in my overall health. I was a 60+ pounds heavier than I am today and completely miserable. I started walking a nature trail, doing yoga with friends, eating healthier, and getting adjusted by my now husband. When I became pregnant with our first child, Nolan, I became an even bigger health nut than before. I started researching the importance of eating organic healthy foods, both sides of the entire vaccination debate, and the over-abundance of chemical-filled products.
I was disturbed to find that most common household cleaning products that people use every single day are filled with toxic chemicals. The statistics show that spending decades inhaling these cleaners leads to major problems with approximately 24% of all human diseases being linked to environmental factors. I highly suggest looking up all your cosmetic and personal care items on the Skin Deep or Think Dirty apps to see what is hiding in your products! Around the same time, a friend of my sister introduced me to this amazing company called Norwex.
Norwex was founded by a group of scientists and doctors on a mission to improve the quality of our lives by reducing chemicals in our homes. Norwex microfiber cloths can clean your entire house just by being wet with water! I went to a Norwex home party, listened about all of the products, and fell in LOVE! I bought a starter kit and became a consultant to get the discount and free products, and I use and love each and every single one for our household and our personal care.
Here are my top five Norwex items:
The microfiber cloths are infused with silver which smothers and kills 99.9% off all germs and bacteria. When used dry, the cloth lifts and collects particles of dirt, grease, and moisture by producing an electrostatic charge. These come in four colors and can be used to clean anything. We have several of these, and I have given away countless cloths and hear comments of how much people love them. We use them to wipe down the cabinets, counters, sink, stove, and fridge in our kitchen! I can grab one if we spill a drink because they are extra absorbent, can hold several times their weight in liquid, and they do not leave a sticky mess on the floor. I can wipe down the tub and scrub crayon off of my walls with one. When I finish using mine, I just rinse it in warm water and rub it together then wring out and hang to dry. The silver is bonded in the cloth, so it will never quit working! This cloth can save you countless dollars throughout the year. Say goodbye to Clorox wipes, paper towels, 409 and Pledge!
This cloth works hand in hand with the envirocloth! Simply wipe windows, mirrors, crystal, jewelry and shiny surfaces with a damp envirocloth and then polish sparkling clean with the window cloth. This microfiber cloth completely cut out my need for Windex.
I cannot tell y’all enough how much I LOVE my Norwex dry and wet mop pads! We have mostly hardwood and tile floors, so I was sweeping pretty much every day before I bought the mop system. Now I dry mop biweekly to catch the dust mites, dog hair and mess from two kids and a hubby. The dry mop pad is electromagnetically charged and picks up the tiniest of particles versus a regular broom that just pushes everything around. I also use the dry mop pad to clean the air returns in our house; it is super easy to get all of that dust that collects cleaned out! I bought the Norwex rubber brush to clean out the mop pad after I finish cleaning the floors. I just step outside and rub the brush downward and all the debris comes out. The wet mop pad is what we use to mop and sanitize our floors. It is microfiber and once it is wet with water, it kills 99.9% of all germs and bacteria. I can mop my entire house in less than 10 minutes and without using toxic chemicals. When you have two small children running around and dropping food on the floor, they will pick it up and eat it even after the 5- second rule, so making sure I steer clear from chemicals is a huge deal for our family.
I am pretty sure any person would say that she or he could live without having to do a load of towels every week. Larger families have to do multiple loads a week! Our family cut out two loads of laundry a week by switching to Norwex towels. Do not get me wrong, I love a big white plush towel, but I cannot stand having to launder them and fold them only to have to continuously repeat the process. They Norwex body towels are microfiber towels that absorb several times their weight in water from your shower or bath. Hang the towel up to dry by the tag and use all week. These towels do not mildew (like the other products, the silver smothers and kills 99.9% of all bacteria and germs) so every time you use it, it is like using a fresh towel. We each have a body towel, and I bought an extra set for company. I donated most of our old towels to animal shelters and homeless shelters so I could keep the green love going!
