DIY Wedding Dress Cleaning… Norwex Laundry Detergent you are a winner!

cleaning your wedding dress... norwex style!

So as part of cleaning up & going through my wardrobe I found my wedding dress… again! How many times have we moved & I have carted my uncleaned wedding dress around, only to hang in another wardrobe?

Well… I decided I would actually clean it today!! So after over 20 years (YES over 20 years!!!!) I declared TODAY AS THE DAY…

So how did I clean my wedding dress?

  1. I used our Norwex Laundry Detergent. This detergent is highly concentrated, has superior stain-fighting powder & contains biodegradable surfactants & is free from:
  • optical brighteners
  • phosphates
  • bleaches
  • fillers
  • ammonia
  • & other nasties

2. I ran the bath, added two scoops of our laundry detergent with some water, I let it soak for two hours (& popped a towel on top so it weighed down the dress so it was completely covered).

3. My washing machine has a great gentle hand wash cycle, I used this but I didn’t have intricate lace or anything (you may like to hand rinse but make sure it is rinsed very thoroughly)

4. Then I hung it to dry in the sun!! I still can’t believe how well it’s turned out!! YAY!!!!!! 🙌🙌🙌

The Norwex Counter Cloths… how are they different to kitchen cloths?

NEW PRODUCT ALERT!

counter cloths slate vanilla and mushroom.jpg
Vanilla, Slate & Mushroom Counter Cloths

Available now & made with recycled plastic. I love the way Norwex are helping improve our world by using plastic and turning it into something reusable and SO HELPFUL!

These ultra-absorbent, reusable cloths feature a unique new weave to quickly pick up spills and messes in the kitchen, bathroom – really anywhere! Constructed from Norwex Microfibre made from 50% recycled materials in the same size as a half-sheet of paper towel, each set contains almost a whole recycled plastic bottle (500 ml), so you’re helping to clean up the world every time you quickly clean up!

Use them for…

  • Wiping your benches
  • Replace your paper towel
  • Sticky fingers and faces
  • Smaller size- so great for children to help
  • Pop a pack in the car
  • Use as you would a napkin
  • Children’s lunch boxes
  • Use them for quick wipe ups in the bathroom
  • Cleaning up spills
  • Use them camping

SOOOO…. the biggest questions I am getting is…

counter cloths marine, teal and sea mist.jpg

Marine, Teal & Sea mist Counter Cloths

HOW ARE THE COUNTER CLOTHS DIFFERENT TO THE KITCHEN CLOTHS?

Firstly, how are they the same?

  • They both contain BacLock®* in the cloth – our micro silver antibacterial agent – goes to work to self-purify and inhibit odours from bacteria, mould and mildew growth within the cloth within 24 hours so that it is ready to use again.
  • Norwex Microfibre has the ability to remove up to 99% of bacteria from a surface with only water when following the proper care and use instructions.
  • Helpful for wiping up spills and cleaning on the go

Secondly, how are they different?

  • Each set of three Counter Cloths is made from 50% recycled materials and constructed of 0.7 recycled plastic bottles (500 ml).
  • They are smaller than the kitchen cloth and each cloth is half the size of a full-size paper towel.
  • A super size for wiping fingers and faces.
  • Purchase in a set of three so you’ll always have one handy
  • Quick-drying so they’re ready to use again soon.
  • Unique new weave absorbs spills fast.
  • Use in the kitchen and bathroom to reduce your paper towel
  • They don’t have a tag

LIMITED EDITION COUNTER CLOTH BOX

Every cloth needs a home – like our exclusive, Norwex-branded Counter Cloth Box, shaped like a cosy house! Set contains all six colours of Counter Cloths and keeps them within easy reach on kitchen and bathroom countertops for a quick, grab-and-go clean! While supplies last! Up to 12 Counter Cloths fold for easy storage in the Counter Cloth Box, so they’re always convenient when you need them. GRAB YOURS HERE. One of our Norwex consultants also had a great idea *fold a grey all purpose kitchen cloth in the house for your quick greasy clean ups (e.g. food splatters on your stove top or splash back).

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 5.43.14 amMeighan Hopper a US leader has done a great video showing and describing the counter cloths, if you would like a watch it is HERE.

She also had the idea of using a medium sized sink mat under the Box & also drying the one in use on top of the house! She describes the counter cloths as being like “the body cloth packs for the kitchen”. I love that 🙂 So just like the body pack you use one- when you feel like it is dirty you pop it in the wash and grab the next one from the pack- same concept with the counter cloths!

I hope that helps! If you were wanting to BUY some, head over to my website and try some in your home!

Have a great day!

“That Toilet Post”… Norwex has solutions for mineral build up and stains in the toilet…

Natural solutions for stains & mineral build up

2015-05-11 09.49.43

It’s not the most pleasant of topics. But many of us have stains in the loo that we’ve either ignored and just put up with or tried countless things “guaranteed” to work to no avail. In this post I will show you and give you some instructions on how to get rid of those stains, hard water build up, lime and mineral build up (or whatever that is down at the base & in the bowl!). I will show you some other common toilet issues and natural Norwex solutions that can be used too.

descaler

Norwex Descaler

I love the descaler and this is the product that will work its magic on your toilet stains!

Just so you know, it also…

  • Leaves taps and drains clean and sparkling like new.
  • Works on a variety of surfaces, including shower doors, shower curtains, shower stalls, bathtubs, sinks and drains.
  • Works well on porcelain, ceramic tile, fibreglass, glass, stainless steel, aluminium,
    vinyl and plastic.
  • Removes mineral stains where water has consistently dripped on a surface.
  • Removes water marks from glass and tiles where water has evaporated, leaving minerals to stain the surface.
  • If used regularly, lime buildup can be avoided.
  • It contains no aerosol propellants.

Steps to remove those stains…

READY??
1. Remove water (Hot tip to remove water out of the toilet bowl: flush 2L of water down the toilet quickly and then soak the rest up with a towel or enviro cloth)
2. Spray the Norwex Descaler generously- leave for at least 10 mins (you can also use this amazing product on shower screens, rust, limescale, soap scum, drains & more!)

357120-Foot-Stone.jpgThe next step involves our Norwex foot stone! Yes you heard right! Of course it will be a separate one from the one you use on your feet (& it is pretty AMAZING on cracked heels) however some features as to why our foot stone is the best you’ll use is it is 100% pure pumice and doesn’t break away like other foot stones I have personally tried. It’s great to use on the toilet as it is stone on stone, it works VERY WELL at budging build up on the toilet, without scratching the enamel.


3. Use the AWESOME Norwex footstone and scrub away
4. Refill the loo & admire… Yay you!
5. Treat your hands with some of our hand cream (you deserve it & your hands will feel amazing)….

The Norwex Blue Diamond

blue diamondThe Blue diamond is designed as an all purpose bathroom product (toilet, shower, tiles, bath tubs and sinks) and can be great for removing stains too. Its special formulation allows for deep penetration into surfaces, eliminating odour-causing bacteria and germs as well as dissolving rust stains, hard water scales and soap scum.

I love that it is…

  • A thick, ultra-concentrated gel lingers on surfaces to penetrate deeply
  • Phosphate-free
  • Has no APEs (alkyl phenol ethoxylates)
  • Organic salts and citric acid replace strong corrosive acids
  • Readily biodegradable
  • Will not harm plumbing systems
  • Fragrance-free

Promise me you will reward yourself if you have to do this toilet cleaning job?!?! Try the hand cream… It really is amazing!!! 

hand cream

 

Norwex Hand Cream

Natural emollients from Grape Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and other botanicals penetrate deeply to soften and condition rough, dry hands. Vitamin E and Organic Aloe Vera help protect, nourish and moisturise. Formulated with all-natural, chemical-free ingredients, it penetrates deeply to nourish, moisturise and comfort skin, making your hands feel silky smooth and oh so touchable.

 

How to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of the build up or stains occurring again….

Add a magnet ball to the cistern! Yes true story.

357020-Magnet-BallWhy does that work? And what on earth is it?

Firstly the magnet ball is usually used in washing machines and dish washers as it prevents calcium (& lime) from building up in dishwashers and washing machines, resulting in softer water and requiring up to 70% less detergent. A more unconventional but recommended use for it is in toilet cisterns as it softens the water. There has been much feedback from people who have water that is quite hard or who get constant stains in the toilet, that it truly helps!

For example Sarah said, “I put one in mine, I have dam water on the toilet, I have to clean it at least once a month as it gets yucky, but my toilet bowl is still white (not like the old one that had a permanent brown stains) but I clean it once a month with blue diamond”. 

AND you know what? Remember…

Your Norwex products come with a 60 day satisfaction guarantee and the magnet ball has a 5 year warranty too! I love that!! So you can try with confidence!!

Are you inspired???

Why I love the Norwex Fresh Produce Wash so much!

fresh produce wash and veggie scrub cloth.pngCan I tell you how much I am loving the fresh produce wash at the moment?! Food tastes better, looks better and I love to know that I am getting off pesticides and other gross stuff off my fruit and veggies.

Have you tried it yet?!

My Top Reasons why I love it…

  • It get rid of pesticide, oils, residues, chemicals, bacteria and dirt.
  • Food lasts longer in the fridge
  • The wash is biodegradable, non toxic, plant based and free from phosphates, sulfates and parabens.
  • It doesn’t have an aftertaste (yeah!) In fact I think food tastes nicer.
  • It lasts 1 week in the fridge (Handy tip: before you store carefully pour into another container leaving behind the gross stuff that sinks to the bottom)
  • Our family aren’t ingesting chemicals and do you know what? Since switching 100% to the wash I’ve noticed a change in behaviour (an improvement) in one of my children who is VERY susceptible to additives and preservatives.
  • You just use 15mls and it makes up 500mls  of solution, do the bottle lasts a long time.

How do you use it?

You mix up 15mls and 500mls of water

You can mix up the solution into a bottle and spray, wait 30 seconds & rinse

Soak fruits and vegetables for 1-2 minutes then leave to dry or dry with a the Norwex fruit and veggie scrub cloth (Handy tip: if you are doing a large amount simply make up two bowls, so you have one soaking while you are washing the other)

You swish around leafy vegetables, broccoli and cauliflower and then rinse.

Here is a picture of a piece of broccoli being washed with just water (notice the repelling) and then after soaking for a minute… note the water! A-MAY-ZING!!
