Simple, Frugal Chemical-free cleaning that WORKS!

I am extremely excited about April’s “Chemical Elimination” Challenge–Natural CLEANING!

In preparation for the blog post, I have been testing a variety of options in our own home, and I simply cannot wait until April before I give a brief plug for Norwex:-)

In my Chemical Elimination blog post, I will be more thorough, but let me just give you a quick overview of Norwex.

From their website:

“Norwex is committed to radically reducing the use of chemicals in personal care and cleaning to promote health. More than ever we feel the need to emphasize the positive environmental impact of reducing chemical use.”

“In the last 50 years more than 80,000 new chemicals have been produced and introduced into the environment. “Ecology” refers to the way human beings, animals, and other life forms and nature interact and influence each other.

The ecological approach considers that all living species and nature are interdependent, and that there are limitations to what nature can absorb in terms of human activities such as pollution.  Change something here, and the consequences will pop up there.  Radical change — manmade or otherwise — may overwhelm the delicate balance in the environment, resulting in unintended and dramatic negative change.

We must find a way to provide for the needs of the present, without sacrificing the ability of future generations to provide for their needs.  Contributing to the change by becoming part of the Norwex family will result in an improvement in quality of life.

“We strive to improve quality of life rather than standard of living.”

Behind this aim lies the value and beauty of life itself, both for us, and other life forms. 

From a health point of view, it is equally important to radically reduce the use of household chemicals.  Research and information on the health effects of chemicals has not kept pace with their development and use. “Most of the chemicals that people are exposed to everyday have never been assessed for their impact on human health.”

The harm chemicals have on humans is extensive.  Chemicals found in the average home are linked to many serious diseases such as allergies, birth defects, cancer, and psychological abnormalities.  Many today believe that the extensive use of chemicals indoors contributes to “modern” diseases such as asthma and allergies.”

Norwex allows you to clean and disinfect your entire home with the use of simply a microfiber cloth and water! Check out their website for their full line of products and how this amazing technology works!  You really have to see it to believe it.

On Tuesday at 7pm, we are having a Norwex party at our home.  If you are in the QC  area and are curious, please contact me–I would love to have you come!  There will be light snacks and Christina will be demonstrating how Norwex works…by cleaning parts of my home!!

If you are already familiar with Norwex and are eager to purchase more of their amazing product, check out my consultant’s websiteyou can place an order on-line through me or her!

I cannot say enough good things about Norwex. It will truly revolutionize the way you clean, and you will never have to stock your cupboards with sprays, solutions, detergents, and chemicals to clean your home with again!

    I discovered Norwex last fall, and I can’t say enough great things about the products!! I LOVE them! And one of the greatest benefits is that my two year old can now help without me worrying he’s touching toxic chemicals!

    As a side note- would you consider selling a sample of the clay you use for your hair? I’ve tried the baking soda method as well as shampoo bars (currently trying), but I’ve struggled with both. If you’re planning to sell samples, I’d love to try one so I don’t have to invest so much without knowing if it’ll work. Also- did you have any kind of transition time with your hair when you switched? Thanks so much! I love reading all your ideas!

    Hey! I would love to send you a sample of the clay, however, I am not currently using it in my hair. I found that it was drying out my hair and did not like it. What I am currently using is equal parts baking soda and water (with some tea tree oil for dandruff) and rinsing it with Queen of Hungary Water. I LOVE IT!!! The Queen of Hungary Water was the clincher for me–I have very long, fine hair and it always tangles, but the Water smoothed it right out without having to use conditioner! I will probably try the clay again with the Water and see if the Water makes the difference…I will keep you posted! (If you still want the clay, let me know!

  3. I’m a big fan of Norwex and was a consultant for 3 years. Their products changed the way I clean and there isn’t a single chemical cleanser in our home. I was selling a fair amount of it but always felt guilty about the price of it. I offered hefty discounts to my customers – because I wanted other people to change the way they cleaned without having to break the bank. Recently though, I switched to e-cloth. I still love Norwex products, but I’ve found e-cloth to be just as good at really reasonable prices.

    I’ve got lots of my honest (good and bad) reviews of Norwex on my blog if you’re looking for information.

    Good luck with your party. I’m sure everyone will be blown away by the products!
