Does the below picture gross you out?
If you, or someone you love suffers with dust allergies, you know how critical it is to reduce their numbers in your home.
Did you know that most dust allergy sufferers are allergic to the dust mite’s POOP?
I know… Yuck.
It’s the protein in the dust mite feces that irritates the mucus membranes of your sinuses causing sneezing, congestion, itchy & watery eyes, couching, dark circles under the eyes & asthma flare… 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
This post kicks off a new series here on the Healthy Home Cleaning blog – “Use This Not That!” I’m going to be tackling a list of some of the most dangerous household cleaners (found here) and giving a rundown on everything you need to know about the harsh chemicals in them, along with information on which Norwex product will do the same job safely and efficiently. How’s that sound? Good? Good!
Today’s dangerous cleaning product I am tackling… Continue reading
I finally got around to trying the Norwex Odour Eliminator, and it has quickly become one of my favorite Norwex products. This stuff is biodegradable, and chemical-free. It’s enzyme-based, and the “critters” in it eat through the bacteria that causes organic odours. Odour Eliminator removes organic smells instantly, safely and without toxic chemicals.
The first place I tried Odour Eliminator was in my young son’s plastic toy chest, where I’ve… Continue reading
“Norwex Laundry Pre-Wash Stain Remover penetrates, dissolves and eliminates on contact a variety of stains and soil in fabrics.”
This is the claim, but is it accurate?
Grass stains are the bane of my spring, summer and fall laundry days. My kids love to play “puppy” and “horsey” and “kitty”, and all other manner of ‘animals crawling on the ground’ games, and by the end of the day, I have multiple, ground in grass stains on knees, bums… Continue reading

The Norwex Carpet Stain Buster was introduced in summer 2007, and wow, does it ever work!
It’s meant to remove organic matter, and it “eats” through red wine, baby stains, sick kid stains, urine stains, and anything other protein-based stain you can think of. You can literally watch it happen! It works where chemical cleaning solutions fail, and is truly amazing. Listen to this customers experience with the Carpet… Continue reading
Q: Does Norwex Oven Cleaner work?
A: “YES” – here’s my story.
It’s unfortunate, but these pictures don’t really do justice to the disgusting state of my oven before the cleaning….the camera just wouldn’t capture the full grossness of it.
This oven is older than me (I think it’s a 1960′s model), and obviously doesn’t have the “self-cleaning” feature of the newer models. I’m… Continue reading
Norwex DeScaler is the absolute best thing I’ve found for soap scum and limescale removal.
It easily removes the “yuck” on shower doors, bathroom taps and other places where soap scum and lime and rust are a problem.
This stuff is enzyme based – free of hazardous chemicals and enviro friendly. The enzymes in the DeScaler actually eat the soap scum! I just spray it on, wait 5 -10 minutes, and wipe off with my wet Antibac Cloth. It’s incredible.… Continue reading
