“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!!

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!!

The New Norwex Ultra Power Plus laundry powder has been released!

new upp formulationThe Norwex Ultra Power Plus Laundry Powder is…

* phosphate free, sulphate free, chlorine free, free from optical brightener, dyes and fragrance.

* Filler free. Many other detergents contain ingredients that build up in your septic system, pipes and wash machine and do not break down. As a result, they are polluting our waterways and clogging our systems.

* This formulation is a high performance, 100% natural, biodegradable formula will work great septic systems, biocycle systems, greywater recycling systems and won’t harm the environment.

* An official High Efficiency (HE) detergent

* It has been very successful with customers who have sensitive skin, eczema and allergies.

Fillers in washing powders range from salt, potatoe skins, card board & more. Get a FILLER FREE detergent like the UPP

Fillers in washing powders range from salt, potatoe skins, card board & more. Try a FILLER FREE detergent! Legally in Australia manufacturers can add up to 30% of their product as fillers- YUK.

 How is the New formulation Different?

It has the same great cleaning power as the original UPP, but has been designed for both high efficiency (front loading) and conventional (top loading) washing machines. The ingredients have been changed to make it even greener but the price is still the same.

Our favourite, top-selling product just got even better! Norwex’s Ultra Power Plus (UPP) just became even cleaner for us and the environment. It is now also an official HE detergent!

Amazing Value for money

Have you calculated the price difference between Ultra Power Plus and the brand your currently using? Or the one you used to use? Have a go, I bet the difference will stagger you! You use a really small scoop…1 tablespoon for a top loader & a teaspoon for top loaders/HE machines.

What if I don’t like it?

It comes with a 60 day money back satisfaction guarantee so it s a WIN-WIN situation

Norwex Travel Enviro Cloths to the rescue

travel pack large
There have been MANY times a simple travel enviro in my handbag has come to the rescue!

I remember the time all the cafe chairs were wet & one single highly woven, absorbent (AMAZING) travel enviro wiped up ALL the water. Yes ALL the water. If I had little kids still I am sure I would have appreciated it at parks too- you know that annoying wet slide that makes your kidlets bottoms wet! Wiping the trolley at the supermarket & cleaning the car interior are other uses I regularly use it aswell. Have a read here about an early post about the travel enviros cleaning off mould from our Venetians. Of course this travel enviro is just a baby version of our AWESOME enviro cloth so has the silver, the highly woven microfibre & cleans just aswell.

I reflect on one of my recent hosts who had been cleaning her house for two weeks with 1 single travel enviro (I like to give a booking gift when someone books a party) she had been doing her glass, counters, shower, fingers, tables & more. I wish I had it on video when she had the BIG enviro on her hand cleaning the window she was so excited with all the extra cloth power! haha.

“I have slept like a LOG for a whole week thanks to this product! Rubbing it into my temples and all over my neck and shoulders is proving miraculous, because I have awful trouble getting off to sleep, and staying asleep once I get there. I always have. But this week has been AMAZING. I wake up, morning after morning, totally astonished at how I slept like a log, and so I wake up feeling properly refreshed. I used it tonight as a chest and back rub for my daughter who has the flu. It took away all the achy pains in her back, and cleared her stuffed nose, so she’s dropped straight off to sleep (and she, like me, usually struggles most nights to get to sleep). And I’m so delighted to have a natural chest rub – I hate all the chemicals in vicks. So this is one happy mumma!” Catherine.

Where can I get it from?

You can buy it online at my online store, who would like to try some?

A Natural Carpet Cleaner that actually works!!

carpet stain buster
HAVE YOU EVER TRIED THE NORWEX CARPET STAIN BUSTER?!

Once I had a lady book a party solely to test if the carpet stain buster (CSB) worked on a lemon meringue pie stain that she just could not get out of her carpet. Are you interested in the result? I tried a damp enviro cloth on this stain (always good to try an ENVIRO cloth first as this cloth will work on SO MANY stains with JUST water) and it did a great job at budging it. I then sprayed water on the carpet and sprayed CSB on top. After agitating it with an enviro cloth- the lemon meringue stain was gone. Needless to say, I had once happy host :0) 

The CSB is safe for use on all carpets, upholstery and Microfibre cloths (just NOT on carpets treated with Scotch Guard). It does not contain colour brighteners or bleach and does not leave soapy residue like standard cleaners. It’s a great idea to test on an inconspicuous spot first before using. Fabulous for cleaning mould, mildew, blood, urine, dirt & grass.

How to use: It does work better with water, so use as I described above or dilute 20% product to 80% water. Spray a little on the stain. Agitate Envirocloth on the stain. Over the next few days, if the carpet buster continues to draw up the stain, agitate again with damp Envirocloth. Best used in conjuction with an ENVIRO CLOTH.

What is an Enviro Cloth?

An enviro cloth is our “everything” cloth- dense with microfibres and has silver embedded within the cloth, it can be used for SO many things- from windows to mirrors to marks off walls, furniture, carpets and more. If you want to try the carpet stain buster (with 60 day money back guarantee) then I encourage you to grab an enviro cloth too! Have more of a read of one of my other posts about the enviro cloth HERE.
