Norwex Body Cloths (best thing ever!)

There is something called a Norwex Body Cloth. And it is AMAZING. A-MA-Z-ING.

I want to start by saying I purchased this product with my own money and I am not associated with Norwex in anyway, this review is completely honest and my own.

I use it at least twice a day and every time I ask myself, how did I ever live without this?

It’s a cloth, looks like a fairly regular cloth.

Norwex Body Cloth

You get it wet and wash. It takes off all your makeup and leaves your skin so soft and clean. Seriously. Just the cloth and water. No cleaner, nothing. Just water and the cloth. I feel like my face is cleaner than it ever is with soap. I also feel like my skin looks better, cleaner and maybe even a little bit brighter? Just don’t scrub too hard! I have taken some skin off with it, oops.

A three pack of cloths is only $20 and they should last for years. So easy to take on a trip, just throw a cloth in your bag. No need for bottles of cleaners, soaps, etc. The best thing, they work great on your whole body! They are awesome for scrubbing and exfoliating and even shaving (yes, SHAVING, that topic needs it’s own post.)

With this one cloth I have replaced my face cleaners (I do still use them occasionally, but only because I have some left, I always use the cloth as well), puff/loofah things, scrubbing mit, exfoliating body wash and shaving cream. Some people say you don’t need soap with it, but I always use a little soap as well because I am worried I would smell, especially with it being such a hot summer. But be careful about using soaps with the cloths because they can suck everything up; I always use my Norwex cloth with water only. They do have the AntiBac (silver in the microfiber) in them so they are antibacterial.

$20 for three cloths, that is $6.67 each and I have replaced at least 5 products. I have only been using my cloths about two months and I have already saved at least $20.

Both my sister and my husband said they feel weird. Maybe they do a little bit but I still love them. My husband keeps using his and says it works good though. My sister gave up on hers after one try. I personally love the feel of it. It makes me feel so nice and clean.

How To Use

  1. Wet face and cleanse with a damp Body Cloth. For dry or sensitive skin, including skin around the eye area, wipe gently with a moist cloth. For oily skin or for a deeper exfoliation, wring cloth well before using.
  2. Rinse under warm water and use other side of cloth to continue cleansing face or body.
  3. Slightly dirty microfiber can be washed with Norwex Dishwashing Liquid under warm running water and used again before laundering. Rinse thoroughly after washing and air or machine dry.
  4. Cloths that have been used heavily should be laundered using Norwex Ultra Power Plus™, which contains no fillers, after each use. Do not use bleach, fabric softeners or dryer sheets.

Did you know?
Harsh soaps and cleansers can be drying to skin. They’re especially problematic to those with sensitive skin. Using a soft microfiber cloth with just water can help maintain the balance of delicate skin.
The tiny plastic microbeads in some facial cleansers are nonbiodegradable. In fact, they were recently banned by the state of Illinois because of their detrimental effects on the environment.

Norwex – Cleaning with Only Water

Have you heard of Norwex? I hadn’t until just very recently. I got invited to a Norwex party by a mutual friend and was like WTF is Norwex, why do I want to go to a cleaning party, lame, and ignored the invitation. A couple weeks later a good friend invited me to her Norwex party so I had to go. Right from the second she told me about it I knew I wasn’t going to buy anything. I have tons of cleaning products from my couponing days and I just don’t need more. WRONG.

I went over to my friends house and she rubbed butter all of her mirror. BUTTER! Then she got out this pretty pink cloth, got it wet (with water!) and wiped her mirror. Next she got out this pretty purple cloth and dried her mirror. It was spotless. SPOTLESS. I decided right then and there I needed these cloths. I knew nothing else but I had to have these cloths.

Before the party I actually ended up winning the cloths somewhere else so I went to the party not sure what else they could really sell me on. Cleaning sucks. By the time the party was over I was sold. I needed Norwex everything (except the mop) and I had signed up to host my own party.

I have a few cleaners but I was never a hard core cleaning product person. I hate bleach, it scares me – I am always so worried about ruining things. But I do use Vim and Windex (mostly for cleaning my stainless steel appliances). Because of my dogs I have always been pretty careful with chemicals in the home, especially on my floors. I was already cleaning with vinegar and water, or water only when I could anyway so Norwex just made sense to me. I love that the Microfiber cloths are infused with silver, this makes them naturally antibacterial – and they clean so well. The Window cloth really is magic. I spray some water on my Windows, glass doors, stainless steel appliances, etc wipe with the cloth and they are spotless almost instantly. NO STREAKS. When I see baby licking these things I can breath safe knowing they are not covered in Windex and the cloths really do save time.

I often see people asking about natural cleaning products and people mention Method and Green Works but seriously, try Norwex! I am so hooked I have even been thinking about selling it and a two months ago I had no idea what it even was! I haven’t touched my Windex or Vim since I received my Norwex products. The only cleaning product I have used is my Cerama Bryte to clean my cooktop – but I hear the Norwex Cleaning Paste works great for that – I just don’t have any yet. I feel cleaner and almost lighter, it is weird. I actually have this itching to throw away all my cleaning products. But the OCD in me says I still might need them ONE DAY. I should probably just throw them away…

If you get invited to a party, go! Check it out – it really has changed my life. It has changed the way I think about cleaning and how I feel about cleaning. Hosting a party allowed me to try all kinds of things without spending too much money.

Free Sample Organization

I was looking for something under the bathroom sink today when a bunch of free samples came spilling out onto the floor. I decided maybe I should try tiding them up a bit. By the time the day was over I had gone to the dollar store and picked up some cute little purple baskets to organize them in – but here was the start of organizing my mess:

free samples

Most of the free samples came from the brandSAMPLER packages – I have been collecting them for the past year or so. They seem to have them every few months.

Onto my favourtie freebies – RAZORS! I love free razors.

free razors

These came from various places. If I happen to see more I will be sure to post the link on the site.

It was nice to get this stuff cleaned up. Got some free space under my bathroom sinks – not so scary to open anymore.
