What Is Norwex?
Simply put, Norwex products provide a healthy and less expensive way to keep your home clean.
The goal is to create “safe havens” in our homes by radically reducing the number of chemicals we use in them. The way to do this is to offer a new way to clean – chemical free.
The solution is to clean using only water, and Norwex microfiber. No chemicals required!
Products such as the Enviro Cloth have the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface, using only water.

How Do Norwex Products Actually Work?
As I said above, one of the greatest things about this special microfiber is that it can remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface using only water.
That’s incredible – and a much better clean than other cleaning products. Not to mention cheaper.
But how does the microfiber actually work?
All About Norwex Microfiber
The microfiber is made from tiny fibers woven tightly together. This allows the microfiber to pick up very small particles by “lifting” them from a surface that is being cleaned. It then “traps” the particles in the microscopic spaces between the fibers.
How the microfiber is made is truly incredible. These fibers are 1/200th the size of a human hair. When one of these microfiber product is mande, the fibers are woven so densely that just one could reach from Canada all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
Each one of these fibers are more than 10 Million feet.
Because of this, these microfiber cloths can hold up to 7 times it’s weight when cleaning up liquid and grime.
What Is Norwex BacLock?
Some of the Norwex products have what’s called BacLock.
Norwex BacLock is an antibacterial agent which is for self cleaning purposes only.
This antibacterial agent is designed to inhibit bacterial odor, mold, or mildew growth in the microfiber products.
Using Norwex Microfiber Dry
When you clean without getting the microfiber wet, it makes for the best dusting product you’ve ever seen.
The microfiber creates a static charge that attracts and holds the dust particles instead of just pushing them around like normal cloths you might use for dusting.
Using Norwex Microfiber Wet
When using the microfiber wet, you’ll be amazed at how truly clean everything is.
The microfiber lifts the particles on a surface into the cloth. It even gets into the pores of a surface – giving you a real clean.
No chemicals needed! Just water and Norwex microfiber.
What Surfaces Can Norwex Microfiber Be Used On?
This is the great part – are you ready?
Norwex microfiber can be used on any household surface!
You can use it to remove any grease, dust, grime, or anything else with ease.
Caring for Your Norwex Microfiber
Another great part about cleaning with these products is that the upkeep of these products couldn’t be easier.
Just rinse out the microfiber, and hang to dry. That’s it!
From time to time you may want to launder these products.
I’ve written more about that here.
Norwex Saves You Money
Did you know that the average household spends over $600 every year just on cleaning products?
By switching to Norwex, you don’t have to throw money down the drain any longer.
There’s no need to keep sending money on cleaning chemicals that aren’t good for you or your family.
Plus, cleaning chemicals sometimes make more work, because you have to go back and re-clean the residue that’s left behind.
What’s The Best Way To Get Started With Norwex?
Norwex has a lot of great products, but if you’re just getting started, the Household Package is a great place to start.
The Household Package Includes:
This is the cloth that started it all!
The antibacterial microfiber Enviro Cloth removes dust, dirt, and grease from all washable surfaces using only water—no chemicals!
As I’ve shared before, this microfiber has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface when following the proper care and use instructions.
The super-absorbent EnviroCloth picks up dust particles and traps them in the cloth until you rinse it out. Then BacLock in the cloth goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odors from bacteria, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.
This is one of everyone’s favorites! Now you too can have streak free windows!
The hard-working Window Cloth gets windows, mirrors, shower doors, glass tables, crystal, granite counter tops, jewelry, brushed and stainless steel, chrome, knickknacks, patio tables, and shiny surfaces sparkling clean with only water.
And with BacLock in the cloth (the micro silver antibacterial agent) goes to work to self-purify and inhibit bacterial odors, mold and mildew growth within the cloth.
Dusting has never been easier!
The Dusting Mitt can be used wet or dry and is ideal for quick, chemical-free dusting throughout the house.
This is great for use on blinds, screens and other hard-to-clean areas.
With its thick texture; dense, plush fibers and unique mitt design, the Dusting Mitt attracts and holds dust and allergens and won’t let them go. The BacLock in the mitt (the micro silver antibacterial agent) goes to work to self-purify and inhibit bacterial odors, mold and mildew growth within the mitt.

Chemicals in Cleaning Products Can Be Dangerous
Did you know that the chemicals in cleaning products may actually be doing more harm than good?
This certainly was the case in my own home, and some of these facts really freaked me out.
- Pesticides have not been studied for their long-term effects on human health
- Women who live within a mile of spaces where commercial pesticides are applied appear to have an increased risk of having a child with autism
- 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder.
- A recent study found an association between exposure to certain pesticides and a higher risk of Parkinson’s disease.
- National Cancer Institute found residues of 34 toxic chemicals in household carpet dust, including pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and PCBs.
- Environmental Working Group detected 287 chemicals in the cord blood of newborns. Of these, 180 cause cancer in humans or animals, 217 are toxic to the brain and nervous system, and 208 cause birth defects or abnormal development in animal tests.
These videos provide more information, and take you through the science of the effects chemicals are having on us and our families, and what you can do about it.

Norwex Is Making A Difference
I have two young boys. One of which suffers from allergies and asthma, and the other struggles with severe eczema.
Since using these products in my own home since 2012, I can share a few things with you:
- I personally have found my family to be overall healthier since switching to Norwex products from traditional cleaning products. Especially my two boys.
- For me, these products have made cleaning easier and faster. This is very important to me as a busy mom.
- These cleaning products aren’t always the cheapest (up front). However, over time, my family has ended up saving thousands of dollars by making the switch to Norwex products.
I’ve found that when you get rid of the cleaning chemicals in your home, you actually create a much better, and safer environment for your family.
