I’ve been doing a little spring cleaning around my apartment over the last several weeks, most of which involves getting rid of old clothes, organizing my desk, and lazily adding more stuff to my storage area. One chore I tend to neglect the most is dusting, which is pretty bad since I live next to some train tracks and the windowsills get very dusty from debris when the windows are open.
I completely forgot that Deja sent… Continue reading
I get MANY emails from customers asking varied questions on the same theme, “How to do I wash my Norwex microfiber?”. Norwex has it’s own, certified laundering rules, but these instructions are quite short and to the point, and not fully comprehensive.
So for those of you who need a little more, I’ve also written up a “Deja’s Instructions for Washing Norwex Microfiber” list, that is casual, detailed, and rambling…
… hopefully it is helpful.
But first, the official… Continue reading
The other day I discussed a few steps on greening up your kitchen, and now it’s time for another room that uses a lot of water and energy – the bathroom!
Between excessive hot water use, kids who forget to shut off the light, and the need to regularly clean and sanitize the sink and tub to keep everyone healthy, it’s no surprise that a good portion of our energy costs come from the bathroom. If you’re curious… Continue reading
If you have hard water in your home, you know it loves to leave hard water stains – nasty brown or white spots and soap scum on your bathtub, sinks, and clothes, making everything twice as hard to keep clean. Hard water occurs from a high concentration of dissolved minerals – usually calcium, magnesium, & iron – that are picked up by it on the way to (and from) the processing plant. It can be a real pain to constantly… Continue reading
For the first few months after getting them, I thought that “sour cloth syndrome” was a thing of the past – my Norwex cloths never smelled bad – I was a happy cleaner! Within about 4 months, however, my beloved Norwex cloths began to smell sour, just like my… Continue reading
The Norwex Bathroom Scrub Mitt is quickly becoming one of my FAVORITE Norwex products, and although it’s name doesn’t indicate it, this little mitt works all over the house, not just in the bathroom.
The Norwex Bathroom Scrub Mitt is a hybrid of the Norwex Dusting Mitt and the Norwex Kitchen Scrub Cloth, in the form of a mitt – a PERFECT solution for quick and efficient cleaning.
I really like this product! Microfiber has a natural static charge that makes it ideal for dusting. You can actually feel the little microfiber hooks on the Norwex dusting mitt – they grab the dust and trap it in the mitt until you take it outside and shake it.
As you use this dusting mitt to remove the dust from your home, you will find that it takes longer to accumulate. Over time, you need to dust… Continue reading
The theory is that the Norwex Window Cloth will polish smooth surfaces, such as your windows, mirrors and granite counters, to a streak-free, brilliant shine, but the question remains, “does it actually work?”
The answer, based on my personal experience, is a HUGE “Yes!”
I’m sure that when I say, “I hate washing windows”, I’m expressing the sentiment of many people reading this blog. I hate using the mounds of paper towel, spraying the Windex (which always gave me a… Continue reading
The Norwex Microfiber Enviro Cloth is absolutely my favorite Norwex pick, and probably the most used Norwex product in our house. If I were to rate this on a scale of 1 – 5, this handy little cloth would be a definite 10!
This cloth cleans EVERYTHING in my house, and has replaced all of the chemical cleaners I used to use ~ Every home should should have one of these! Here are some of the reasons why I love… Continue reading
