    The bath towel smells mildewy. I wash in hot water and tide for HE. I do not use softner but drier balls. How do I remove this smell? I have had the towel for 4 months washing it at least weekly but hanging outside until November.

    • Deja says

      The TIDE HE could be the cause for your Norwex towels smelling. This is for a couple of reasons. 1) Too much detergent – although the bottle tells you to use a lid full, it’s usually too much (unless you have REALLY hard water). Because it’s highly concentrated, you really only need a very, very small amount. If you’re using too much, your washing machine has a hard time completely rinsing the detergent out of the towels, and it’s actually the soap residue in the towel fibers that starts to smell sour. An easy way to remove the detergent build up is to wash them in hot water using ONLY 1 cup of white vinegar. The vinegar strips the soap from the fibers and your towels should smell fresh again. You may have to do this more than once. 2) The fillers in the TIDE detergent are coating the microfibers of the towel and they aren’t really getting clean. This may seem like a repeat of my first point, but it’s slightly different. If you keep using the TIDE detergent (or any detergent that’s similar), you may continue to have sour towels, even if you only use a small amount of the detergent. You might want to consider using a filler & residue free detergent. I love the Norwex Laundry Detergent (read my review of it HERE), but there are lots of other great natural laundry detergents available, and like the Norwex Detergent, they will help eliminate sour clothes and stinky washing machines.

    I’m so happy i found this website/blog… I am a new consultant w/ Norwex, and have only been to one party and that was mine. I live in an area where not that many people know about norwex.. practically no one- so my upline came down 10 hours to do my party for me… not the only reason she traveled, lol.. but i feel so lost on these products and i am in fear of the questions people w/ ask me as i am not familar or sold 100% on these products. I want to be, and i am cleaning my house to build up my belief/practice with all that i have before i do my first party this week…eeehhhh… But can you help me a couple of things. 1. One thing that i can’t find much information about is the Blue Diamond bath cleaner.. have you tried this and what are your thoughts??
    2. What is the real difference between the Enviro Cloth, Kitchen Cloth, & Body Cloth. They are all microfiber, all antibac. Obviously the texture is a little different but not that much… Is it just labeling? (Sorry if i’m completely off base, i’m just an overthinker to begin with)

    • says

      Denise, I’m so happy you found my blog too, and I’m thrill that it’s been helpful to you! I’m so sorry for my late response… your comment got lost in the pile!

      The 2 questions you asked are topics that I’ve been meaning to write blog posts on for a looooong time, and just haven’t yet. I’m in the process of writing a “Blue Diamond Review”, but it’s not done yet :) But in short, I really love the blue diamond cleaner. It’s basically the Norwex Descaler super concentrated into a gel, mixed with a dirt lifting surfactant. I’ve had amazing success with it on some really tough hard water jobs (like a SUPER rusty toilet bowl), and I love using it in my shower/bathtub diluted with water.

      As for the difference in the different cloths… yes they are all Antibac microfiber, but the weaves of them are different based on the jobs they are meant to perform. For example, the Enviro Cloth is WAY to grabby for the skin on your face… I know I tried it :P It over strips you skin, and is too “rough”, whereas the fibers of the Body Pack cloths and Makeup Removal cloths are perfectly designed to exfoliate but not overdo it.

    • says

      Hi Jennifer – yes, a damp Enviro Cloth is GREAT for cleaning wood furniture! Having 4 young kids means that it’s not just dust that accumulates on my wood coffee and end tables… there are often mystery sticky spots that need more than just the Norwex Dusting Mitt. I get my Enviro Cloth wet, and then wring it out REALLY well… you don’t want it to be sopping wet. Wipe and clean your wood surface, and if you want, polish and dry it with a Norwex Window Cloth (especially if it’s a high gloss surface).

  4. Becky Johnson says

    I’m a new consultant in the US and delighted to find your blog! I was searching for a better understanding of the Mattress Spray and definitely found it here. Also, I was excited to find the How/Where To Use Products listing. Thanks!

  5. Amber Nollen says

    Can the travel enviro-cloths be used for body cloths (washcloths)? I bought thr travel pack so each family member could have a different cloth and hang them in the shower. But now I’m confused on if they are made differently, or what the difference would be. Thanks!

    • says

      Amber, the Norwex Enviro Cloths are not made for using like a face cloth. The weave of these cloths is such, that they over-strip the skin, especially sensitive facial skin. The Body Pack cloths are a gentler, softer weave… perfect for exfoliating while not over drying the skin. Having said that though, I think that I would use the Enviro cloths for “tougher” areas, like arms, legs, back, etc. They would probably be similar to a loofah, and exfoliate without being scratchy!

  6. says

    Hi! I have been a consultant for two months and love the products. I have asthma and the Mattress cleaner has really helped me. Your website is the first place that I have heard to use it again 1 week after the initial time of using it. Is that something that you heard at a convention or something (I’ve read all the literature and don’t remember seeing that!). I’ve done the treatment twice now…a month apart. I’m wondering if I need to do it again with a follow up a week later…?

    • says

      Hmmm, Mari I didn’t even notice that! I think I’m going to change that… no, from all the reading I’ve done, you don’t have to reapply 1 week later :)

    • says

      The Norwex Enviro Cloths last for a looooong time! I’ve had my original cloths for close to 5 years, and I’m still using them and they still work! If your cloths are starting to feel old and crunchy, try soaking them in white vinegar (to strip any residues off), and then deep clean them in the Norwex laundry detergent… your cloths will thank you for it!

  7. April says

    What is the significance of the words in bold? For example, in the first category explaining the places you can use the envirocloth, you have the word “phones” bolded. Can you explain why you have some words in bold? Thank you for this list – I just started with Norwex and this list has answered quite a few of my questions!

  8. Debbie Dykstra says

    I received 2 Norwex clothes as a gift. One is the Antivac Enviro and the other is the Antibac Polish cloth. How do I use the Polish cloth?

    • says

      Unfortunately, no… there’s not a printable version. I would just copy and paste the content into a Word Document, and then print!

  9. Beth says

    I stumbled upon your blog this evening and boy am I glad I did! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! (for this chart) I recently attended a party and the products amazed me but I was overwhelmed with what to do with what! This is perfect, I’m sending your link to all my friends who use or are thinking about Norwex!

  10. Marta says

    I happened to find your blog and boy has this ever been helpful!!! I use the turban twist for my hair an it totally made my hair feel different… a lot better!! But I have one question,how exactly do I put it on?

    • says

      Yes, the hair turban is wonderful! I myself have just begun to use it and love it! To put it on, I flip my head upside down. I cover my head and with the turban, tucking my hair inside. The button is on the back, positioned in the middle. Then I twist the turban at the top of my head two or three times. Once it’s twisted, I grab the loop, pull it back, (flip back upright) and affix the loop over the button. Hope this helps!

  11. Heidi Peris says

    I’m in the process of signing up as a consultant and reading all of your blogs has been extremely helpful! Thanks for being so diligent!

  12. Ernie Rocha says

    Hello, I am wanting to know if the ODUOR ELIMINATOR is pet friendly. Can I spray this product on my carpet and can they walk on it as soon as I spray it .
    Thanks , Ernie

    • says

      Hi Ernie,

      The Norwex Odour Eliminator is a chemical-free odour elimination option that is non-toxic, phthalate-free and biodegradable, so yes, it is pet friendly! It is fine if they walk on the carpet immediately after it has been sprayed!
