Disclosure: I am a Norwex Independent Sales Consultant. All opinions in this post are my own.
This spring, I shared my own dusty past – how dusting with an aerosol can of dusting spray and an old cloth diaper was a cleaning chore I’ve had since I was 5 years old. I revealed how dusting sprays are hazardous to your health, and I shared an effective, all-natural furniture polish recipe.
I thought my dusting future was sealed – dusty surfaces because I dreaded dusting with cheap microfiber cloths and furry, staticky wands that looked like faceless Muppet characters. Even though my children were old enough to help with this chore, the dust always seemed to be present. And I especially hated dusting our bedrooms.
And then I discovered Norwex and signed on to become an Independent Sales Consultant. In my consultant’s starter kit, I received a Dusting Mitt – and I smugly thought, “Big deal!”
Big deal it was. I slipped the mitt on and tried dusting our typically dusty metal railing. I’ve never given much thought to how much time it takes to grasp each metal bar with my dusting cloth. But suddenly I was whisking dust away with just the slightest touch of my hand. It was almost effortless and took a fraction of the time it typically does.
When dusting becomes almost effortless, then I become a customer for life.
What makes dusting with Norwex especially fun is that I don’t have to dust as often – which, I realize, sounds like a slightly unbelievable statement. But when I’ve cleaned with other cloths in the past, the dirt and dust is spread across the surface. Even when I used to clean with the toxic dusting sprays, the dirt and dust would dry to the surface once the spray evaporated. Norwex’s microfiber attracts and holds the dust particles. Since the dust and dirt are actually removed from the surfaces, my furniture takes longer to get dusty.
With my busy life, I’m thankful when I have to clean less often – and the cleaning that I do is quick.
Screens and stairs
Did you know that you can clean window screens? The thought never crossed my mind until I looked into Norwex. And it makes sense – some of my screens were pretty filthy, but I had no idea how to clean them.
With a dusting mitt, the solution’s easy. Simply wet the dusting mitt, and rub it gently along the screen. The dusting mitt gets very dirty and the window screens get very clean!
Cleaning hardwood stairs is super simple with the dusting mitt, too. Instead of fumbling with a broom or vacuum attachment, simply swipe each step with the mitt. Like the screens, the dusting mitt gets very dirty and the stairs get very clean.
