I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. It’s been a good one for me. Had a great day thrift store shopping with my buddy, Carrie Lynn, yesterday. Found some fabulous things and can’t wait to share them with you. I’ll be ending my weekend this evening with a Michael Buble’ concert! Can’t wait – love his music. We call it “sexy music” in our house :-).
I had planned on working on a post today showing you how I painted and distressed my daughter, Morgan’s, furniture. BUT, instead I got up this morning and looked at my windows and thought, “Okay, now that summer is coming to an end (Dear God, I hope VERY soon), I think I’ll clean my windows with the Norwex items that I purchased a few weeks ago. So here is the story.
My girlfriend, Judy M., (everyone knows her because she was born and raised here in Fresno, but also she is one of those people who is just plain fun to be around….I’ll mention to her that I met someone at a party and she’ll say, “Oh, is her last name ______?” and OF COURSE she will know her). ANYWHOOO, Judy calls me a few weeks ago and says, “Hey, I’m having a cleaning party at my house, do you want to come?” I’m thinking, this is a very clever way to get your house cleaned! ha!
She goes on to explain that she has run across an amazing cleaning product called NORWEX. She went on and on about how amazing it is…blah, blah, blah. So I agreed to be there and clean her house :).
At the party, she demonstrated dusting, cleaning mirrors and windows, appliances, etc. Yes, her house was cleaner at the end of the party! I ended up ordering the Enviro Cloth, window cloth, dusting mitt, and makeup remover cloth. Okay, back to window cleaning today…..
I removed all the screens from the windows (only on the back of the house because I was still in my nightgown), wet the BLUE cloth (with just plain tap water) and proceeded to wipe down the 1st window. Next, I dried the window with my window cloth, and it was SPOTLESS and NO STREAKS! I’m serious, THAT WAS IT! No Windex, nothing! The outside of my windows – all 12 of them PLUS 2 sets of french doors (hate cleaning all those little windows), were clean within 1 hr. I hosed off the screens and dried them, popped those babies in and I was ready to head into the house to do the inside of the windows.
The best thing about these two little cloths are that you don’t have to use any chemicals. I LOVE THAT! We have too many chemicals in our world today (that’s why I have to be spider woman around here because the hubby won’t hire a “spider man” to come and spray…but I think it’s because it’s $30/a month…whatever).
So here are the cloths: The blue one is the Antibacterial Enviro Cloth (this is the one you get wet with tap water). DISCLAIMER: be prepared you might think this part is boring. It’s a blend of polyester and polyamide (which is about 1/100th the size of a human hair) and when it’s combined with the right knitting process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material, which can hold up to 7x its weight in matter! Most cloths smear dirt across the surface, but these microfibers produce an electrostatic charge which removes dirt, germs and bacteria. This cloth can be used in replace of your antibacterial wipes (the clean odor is the only thing that will be missing!) It also removes grease! Swedish laboratory tests show 99% bacteria reduction on smooth surfaces.
The purple cloth is the Window Cloth. This is what you SHINE WITH. First you clean your surface with the blue cloth moistened, then you polish (dry) with the purple cloth. It’s STREAK FREE! You can clean mirrors, jewelry or any shiny surface. I can’t wait to use this on the inside of my car windows.
Norwex has a 2 year guarantee. These two clothes are called “THE BASIC PACKAGE” and sells for $30.99 plus tax. I thought it was a bit pricey, but when I saw how great it worked, the chemicals I didn’t have to buy or breath, all the counters, doorknobs, etc. I could clean with the Antibac Cloth and the surfaces I could shine with the Shine Cloth PLUS protecting the environment, I didn’t think it was a bad price at all.
Thank you Judy M. for inviting me to your cleaning party! I had a great time and I LOVE MY two little cloths!
I still need to try my dust mitt and make up remover cloth. Somehow, I don’t think I will be disappointed.
If you are interested in learning more about the Norwex products, you can contact Judy.
Thank you for stopping by!
