I don’t know about you, but it seems like my kitchen is always A National Disaster. A certain four year-old offspring of mine likes to have separate bowls, plates, and silverware for every single food item she’s eating. Does that sound familiar to anyone? So for every meal she has, she leaves behind three bowls and three spoons. (Multiply this by number of meals.) Then, because the baby no longer wants to be in the high-chair, I toss the tray somewhere in the vicinity of the sink. But of course it’s not a clean tray. Oh no. It’s a banana-smeared tray. Yum…
Next thing I know, I am rushing out the door to make it on time for Emmalyn’s school drop-off and take Adelaide to her baby play-group. When I bring Emmalyn home from school, she wants to eat another lunch (even though she just ate lunch at school), which consists of yet another three bowls and three spoons. I toss those into the sink so I can quickly nurse and lay the baby down for her nap, before I lose my window of opportunity.
Y’all know how the rest of the day goes: you’re counting down the minutes until it’s five o’clock somewhere, just trying to stay afloat until the sweet little cherubs are confined to their beds–I mean, until they are snug-as-a-bug-in-a-rug. Now is your opportunity to clean.
You’re famished and exhausted, and Oh look! It’s day-old banana, glued onto the highchair. Fan-freakin-tastic! Moms and dads know day-old stuck-on banana is the absolute worst! And don’t even get me started on blackberries. It’s like a straight-up massacre took place in the middle of my dining room!
I have been touched by an angel. And that angel is called: Norwex.
The Norwex Antibac EnviroCloth, to be exact.
Never judge a book by it’s cover, folks. This plain and ordinary-looking cloth has some super-human powers. I, myself, was totally skeptical, but my sweet friend Tiffany let me borrow The Cloth for a week.
My microwave had been speckled (okay, smothered) with spaghetti sauce for a long time. I’m embarrassed to say exactly how long, so I’ll just say “far too long”. I was told all I had to do was wet The Cloth and wipe. That’s it.
I thought, that’s it? Really? No magical spray?
So I gave it a shot, and guess what?! All it took was one–I repeat: ONE, swipe of The Cloth, and the spaghetti sauce was gone. I was completely floored, and in utter shock!
My cleaning routine has been dramatically shortened, thanks to this little wonder. I use The Cloth for basically everything: kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, the floor, sink, refrigerator, the bathroom sinks, counters, and yes–even the toilet!
Do you want to know what the second best part about the cloth is? (The first is that I didn’t have to use any elbow grease.) The second best part is that there are absolutely NO CHEMICALS in the cloth. Zip. Nada. Zilch! Absolutely NO NASTIES! (Okay, so maybe that might be the first best thing about it, depending on your perspective.) And if you personally know me, you know I hate toxic-filled cleaning products and do not allow them in my home.
OH! The third best thing, in my opinion, is my hands have never been softer! I actually had a small patch of eczema on my finger, and while using the EnviroCloth over the span of a couple of days, it had completely cleared up! I kid you not…
It’s magic, I tell ‘ya!
I’m also the proud owner of the Dust Mitt (way better than anything else I’ve ever tried!), the Polishing Antibac Cloth which leaves my windows and mirrors streak-free (again, by using only
water–no inhaling toxic sprays!), and the Microfiber Antibac Body Cloth, which I use to remove my makeup in a breeze. I love that I’m not wasting cotton balls or daily cleansing cloths, or allowing chemicals to seep in to my face! (Note: my complexion has never been smoother or softer.)
I could sit here and bore you with the science behind it all. But I won’t. I’ll just quickly say that Norwex’s Antibac EnviroCloth is a combination of polyester and polyamide that’s 1/200th the size of a strand of human hair! When used wet, the micro silver antibacterial agent (a.k.a. The Secret Ingredient) works to self-purify against, and inhibit mold, fungi, and bacterial odor.
In other words: It’s the Bomb-Dot-Com for cleaning dust, dirt, and grease. But most importantly, Day-Old-Stuck-on-Banana & Spaghetti-in-the-Microwave-for-Far-Too-Long.
Now if only it could fold my laundry…
