Magnificent Mop Month

It’s official my friends, July is MOP month! I cannot say enough about how insanely generous Norwex is with their hosting program. My hostesses walk away with $200 to $350 in totally free Norwex products to eliminate all the chemicals from their homes. Can you imagine? Only cleaning with water?

8e8862c7d4664ca41d7a4ba48c3ffee3So what’s the hype about this mop? It’s fast, effective, easy, and you only use water. First, the statically charged dry pad picks up your allergens (that vacuum cleaners fail to pick up), hair (goodness gracious, we have a LARGE Bernese Mountain dog. Need a say more?), crumbs, etc. Simply swivel around your floor picking up anything dry with your dry (yellow) pad.

When you are ready to rid your floor of germs, wet your blue microfiber pad (this guy has the antibacterial silver in it) just so that it’s damp. Then go to town cleaning your floor. No mop bucket, no nasty product that leaves streaks. So easy.

I love that there is no product or disposable pad involved. Your mop will last and last without needing to purchase consumables to keep your floors clean.

I have a couple dates left! Contact me to invite your friends to learn more about a better way to clean. Happy cleaning!

When Messes are Dad Gum Fun

I love being fearless with my baking. I tend to try new things when people come over for dinner or when it’s someone’s birthday. My son’s second birthday is today and I thought I would utilize this occasion to make a lovely chocolate beet cake with cream cheese beet frosting. This is in NO way an attempt to get my kids to eat veggies (call me old fashion but I simply make them sit at their seat until their greens are in their tummy) by hiding them in a cake. This is a birthday people and on birthdays you don’t focus on healthy cakes. At least I don’t anyway. I want something to go in the memory bank and I thought this fun treat would do. The man of the home hasn’t been as thrilled as me for this cake (I have to admit, I have been talking about it ever since I saw beets at the farmers market) but I’m excited to surprise his taste buds.

Fun recipes mean fun messes. At least for me they do. Have you ever worked with beets? Or beets with kids?

When the cakes were baking in the oven, the helpers dove into the left over batter in bowls and utelzels.

The end result:

I love that I don’t have to completely freak out when mess bombs go off in my home. Norwex really does help ease the mess tension and gives me the green light to hand off cleaning tasks to the little people of the home. No chemicals and a very effective cloth give those little busy hands something to do and a mom that can sit a little longer with coffee in hand.

A New Appreciation!

In the past month we have added two new members to the family. Yes two.

First came Silas:

Our daily life is more lively then ever with these little ones which I really really wouldn’t change for the world. I have to admit, with a puppy and a baby in our home, a new found appreciation for Norwex has risen. I have used my Enviro Cloth more then I can remember with puppy accidents and oh man…this lovely product sure comes in handy when we wake up to a nasty NASTY dog crate:

With summer almost here, my four walking kids plus the puppy are always going in and out to play…making my lovely hardwood floor quite drab. The Superior mop is amazing. The dry head picks up the pet hair and any dry crumb laying around and then the wet head makes my floors look like new again in seconds. I probably mostly love that it’s SO fast and easy (which is key in my life!).

I have used my Travel pack throughout the day for spit up spots on my clothes and the UPP laundry detergent non-stop. The fact that Norwex makes my life simple and cost effective is great but I’m so glad that I’m not exposing my new little girl to chemicals. I’m super excited to spread the word even more because everyone needs to at least know that there is another way!

My Microfiber Favorites

Of course I believe that every new Norwexer should have the Enviro cloth, Window cloth, and Dusting mitt (also known as the Household Package).

With these three things, here are just some of the things you can eliminate from your home, saving you $$ and health:

Paper Towels

Bleach

Your All Purpose Surface cleaners (you know the brands ;-))

Dusting Spray

Bathroom cleaners

That blue window cleaner

Carpet stain remover

Granite cleaner

and more…

 

There are a few more things in my home that I would classify as my favorites.

The bathroom scrub mitt! I love that bathroom cleaning is no longer an aerobic exercise. This silver embedded mitt never smells and has a rougher side that is great for getting all the soap scum, foot dirt, and anything else out of your nasty tub, shower, or sink. Leave it hanging in the shower and merrily clean your surroundings while feeling the warm water beat upon your back.

norwex-Bathroom-Scrub-MittThe Magic Wand or Magic Sword according to my boys! (also known as the Norwex Enviro Wand). This thing bends and great for those nasty ceiling fans, hard to reach dusty ledges, blinds, appliances and more and more and more…

Envirowand

And last and more certainly NOT least…the Superior MOP! I love that I only need water to clean my new hardwood floors. I love that I can quickly and easily use the dry pad to remove the husband hair off the bathroom floor. It reaches in far and seemingly impossible places. It’s made for years of use. Want it for FREE? Share Norwex with your friends and host a party or start your own Norwex business and get it in the start up kit. Enough said.
