Have you ever heard a Mom say, “Man I wish I could spend all day cleaning!”? Yep, me neither.
What’s worse is being a clean freak/germophobe that would rather get a root canal that clean the house. Recently, I have discovered how to be a clean freak and a lazy house wife at the same time… Which might I add is basically the American woman’s dream.
Here’s the secret:
Microfiber. Sounds silly right? I thought so too. But once I gave it a shot, I discovered that I had been wasting so much time, energy and money all this time. Realistically, all you need is 3 products and 20 minutes a day and you can say “bye, bye” to Saturdays stuck inside cleaning!
Here’s the plan:
Monday and a Dust Mitt: I have a 3 level, 2,400 square foot home and I can start at the top and work my way down to the basement in 20 minutes.
- TV stands
- Night stands
- End tables
Tuesday and an Envirocloth: Start by getting your cloth wet (not dripping) and get to work on the kitchen counters. Move on to bathroom sinks and vanity counters. Rinse out and hang dry.
Wednesday and a Window Cloth: Once again, start upstairs and get your window cloth half damp. I start with the two upstairs bathrooms and wipe all toothpaste marks off of the mirrors. Then, move on to any other mirrors or windows that have been subjected to sticky fingerprints and keep on truckin’. I hit the storm door, windows covered in dog snot, powder room mirror and sliding glass door. Rinse out the cloth and hang dry. Keep out for touch ups as needed and then take down to be washed with the rest on Friday.
Thursday: Repeat Monday and take your dust mitt down for laundry.
Friday: Repeat Tuesday and add in toilets. It is very important to work in this order: Kitchen, bathroom sinks, then wipe down toilets. Toilets cannot be forgotten in this house because of an ornery five-year old boy who has the attention span of a fruit fly. Once complete, (IN THIS ORDER), take the cloths down for laundry.
Here’s the follow-up:
*At the end of the week, throw all three cloths together in the washer with a little laundry detergent. Once the load has finished, hang to dry or put in the dryer with dryer balls. ABSOLUTELY NO DRYER SHEETS. Want to find out more about the dangers of using dryer sheets? Read what Dr. Axe has to say.
Since I am a stay at home Mom, I complete my 20 minutes in the mornings (after I have had my coffee). On days when it’s not possible to get it done in the morning or if you are a working Mom, complete your 20 minutes right before your shower! Since we have dogs that shed like crazy, I also have to vacuum every night. If these tasks take you a little longer than 20 minutes at first, please don’t get discouraged! The more you keep it up, the less you will have to clean and it will continue to get faster and faster!
Here are the added benefits:
Are you wondering if I’m totally losing it? “That crazy lady never used the word spray!” That’s the beauty of microfiber! All you need is WATER... Here comes in all the added bonuses!
- No cleaning products
- No dangerous chemicals
- No paper towels
- No gross residue
This is how you save all that time and money! You no longer have to buy cleaning products or paper towels for your daily chores and since you are literally just wiping away germs, you have saved SO much time. Want to know how to save even more time? Have your kids do it! That’s right! My five and seven-year old love to clean now… because they actually can! You don’t have to worry about them coming in contact with toxic chemicals and it is impossible for them to leave behind paper towel streaks or furniture polish that is attracting more dust than it’s getting rid of! Besides, the dusting mitt is just plain fun!
Here’s how to change your life:
I take a tremendous amount of pride in being able to say that my house is totally chemical free! I was just like you, I thought the only way to get rid of the germs was through bleach or a disinfecting spray but honestly the microfiber is even more successful at removing all that bacteria! What’s even crazier is once you rinse it off and let it dry, it just sits there and self sanitizes! Don’t believe me? Watch this video.
The benefits of choosing the brand, Norwex:
- Their microfiber has a 2 year warranty
- They offer a 60 day satisfaction guarantee
- Their microfiber is 1/100th the size of a human hair and can hold up to 7 times it’s weight in matter!
- The microfiber itself is woven with silver and it is what allows it to “self sanitize”.
I loved reading Wellness Mama’s review on Norwex and think you will also found it helpful.
Here’s the nitty gritty:
Am I a Norwex consultant? Yes. Is this a sales pitch? No. I just want to give you the same opportunity to improve the quality of your life that I had. I signed up to represent this company after I had invested in these 3 products. After more research and learning the goals of Norwex I had to get involved. And because I want all of my friends and family to try things I believe in, I signed up to be a consultant. I do not love it because I sell it, I sell it because I truly love it.
