The New Chenille Hand Towel

Norwex came out with this brilliant product in August and I can say with conviction that it has improved my husband and my sanity in our household ever since we began hanging it from our oven door. It’s important to have something to dry your hands on in the kitchen. It’s even more important to have something to dry your hands on that isn’t chocked full of bacteria. This towel has Norwex’s BacLock silver agent in the fibers, inhibiting bacterial growth within the towel and allowing us to hang it for weeks before throwing it in the laundry.

Ichenille-hand-towel used to use Norwex’s Kitchen Towel for this purpose. But if you have kids, you and I both know how often towels end up on the floor! ahhh!! Norwex has outsmarted kids everywhere with this design. The Chenille Hand Towel is designed to hang from a bar, towel rack, etc. without being pulled off!

Ditch all the hand towels that you have billowing out of that drawer in your kitchen (you know what I’m talking about) and simplify things by having one of these in your kitchen. It’s a must.

Our Dinner Table – Cloth Napkins

attachment-1Kids get real messy at mealtime. Face, hands and sometimes more. If my kids don’t have something to use to wipe their hands throughout their meal, their shirt WILL become their cleaning tool. I don’t like buying paper towels and the throw-away-after-one-use type napkins. I would rather use the money for some tasty cheese or ice-cream and I’m not a fan of contributing to my local landfill for such things. Plus with messy kids they don’t work very well anyways. I tried the cloth napkin route and that worked for a season but it didn’t 100% suite my fancy. I became tired of laundering cloth napkins after a kid only used it once.

cloth-napkinsNow I have a system that I like. At meal times, each child receives a damp mini (travel size) Enviro Cloth. When mealtime is over, I simply rinse the cloths out, hang to dry, and allow the BacLock silver agent to clean the cloth between meals. I LOVE that I don’t
have to care/worry about who gets what cloth since I have peace of mind that there will be no cross contamination. If my Claire uses pink at breakfast, my Elliott can use the same pink at lunch.

I also like using the Travel Size Enviro Cloths in the car, while I’m out and about (shopping carts, kid’s hands, cell phone, etc.).

The Body (Child) Wash Mitt

If you are a parent of a wee child, you would agree that an outside shower and wash down station would be quite lovely; especially during warmer months. I hate to pull my children back from getting good and dirty outside but the cleanup can be daunting!! This is a site that I regularly see throughout my days:

Body wash Mitt

The new Norwex Body Wash Mitt was released a couple weeks ago and I’m over the top excited!! Like the Body Cloths, the Body Wash Mitt has BacLock (antibacterial silver agent) in the soft microfiber on one side, a scrubbyish exfoliating material (for washing feet) on the other side, and is designed to clean your body with just water. Cleaning my kids between playtimes and my own self has been SO easy!

What Cloth for What Job?

I often get the question from people “what cloth for what job??” at my parties. Especially when it comes to kitchen cleaning. Norwex offers an array of cloths/products for our homes but this is not to over complicate matters. Once we know what jobs we need to target in our homes we can choose the appropriate cloth. This lovely chart clearly breaks it down for you. My must haves that I use in my home very regularly to clean include the Enviro (think Everything!) cloth, window cloth, dusting mitt, kitchen cloths/towels, bathroom scrub mitt, and the dish cloth (not listed in the chart). 12563_What_Cloth_for_What_Job_US_CDN_Final_LR

With JUST water?!

I was convinced that I could clean with just water alone when I got the Enviro Cloth and Window Cloth (the Basic Package) in my hands. When cleaning surfaces all over my home, I quickly noticed how CLEAN they felt. How the cloths picked up grime, germs and filth while leaving behind NO residue. I became aware of how my previous cleaners were leaving a film behind…even my green cleaners! And guess what, filth is attracted to film and will come back and stick to your surfaces sooner which means cleaning more often (NO THANKS!).

But I wanted to know for sure that these Norwex cloths are picking up germs that my naked eye can’t see. I did the chicken juice test over and over and read up on how microfiber works. I blame the science in me.
