“I need more sneezing spray” a customer shared on the phone the other day. This particular customer’s Norwex mattress cleaner had run out and after using it for approximately 9 months & having their morning sneezing stop- they were all back to sneezing once more.

One of my customers shared a similar story with me (and many guests at parties!)…

Dawn’s story

“I cannot believe what a fantastic product the mattress spray is – I tried it because of its preventative qualities – who wants bed bugs/dust mites?

I quickly realized that something else had changed – the meeting stopping cough wasn’t happening.
I had plagued staff meetings etc with an amazing, but painless, awful cough for years and years.

Suddenly it wasn’t happening – I know when it’s time to re-spray, I get a little cough if I have forgotten to spray.
Now even my new little cat has no bother with dust etc as she enjoys bed warmth with her human mother.

I used it in the car, too, with the same good results!

When my older visited TWICE recently, there was no ‘morning sneezing’ for which both my daughters are renowned.

My asthmatic friend who visits several times a semester with her studies having residential sessions, has had no attacks here since I used the spray!! ”

Sarah’s story

I vividly remember doing an emergency dash over to Sarah’s house after she had some delightful (?) smells in her car, Sarah is a mum of 4 & whose children get car sick… This is what she just wrote about the mattress cleaner.

Vomit is organic matter, so the enzymes work on them like they do on the dustmite faeces, literally getting rid of it (not just a cover-up). I’ve lent mine out several times to others whose kids have been sick, and I’m so glad it’s on sale again…I’ve been waiting. I always take it with me on holidays (it was great in one holiday house, too, to be able to get rid of what I assume was cat pee smell off the lounges. Sprayed it the first night, then we could sit on the lounge the next morning).

My story

I know in our own family my daughter suffers from asthma & since using this both MY morning runny noses have disappeared & she had gone from needing her ventalin at least once a day to only requiring it when she has a cold. I love how Norwex has improved our quality of life. Yes it has saved us money, saved me time in cleaning but how it has helped our health, that is priceless.

So how does it work?

Dust mites themsleves are not what causes allergies, it’s the faeces they leave behind. In fact dust mite droppings are the most common cause of dust-related allergies.

Dust mites are tiny, approximately 50 of them could fit on the end of a pin. They eat the fungus that grows from dead skin cells and animal dander and each day each one produces about 20 faecal pellets.

Inhaled dust mite faecal matter can lead to eye-ear-nose-throat infections, headaches, fatigue, depression, sleep difficulties, snoring and respiratory illnesses such as sinusitis, allergies and asthma attacks.

What’s in the mattress cleaner?

I often say at my parties that it’s “disgustingly awesome” Why? Because the micro organisms (live bacteria) within the cleaner are dormant in the bottle, but once the bottle has been shaken & sprayed on their “food source” (Yes the POO!!) they are activated, reproduce and as they eat away they produce enzymes (protein) and these enzymes break down the fecal matter, dead skin cells, pet dander or any organic matter which causes unpleasant odours and turn it into carbon dioxide and water. Once their job is done they disintegrate, so no need for vacuuming up afterwards (as you need to do with other sprays).

It’s a classic case of Goodies V’s Baddies!!

The leader of our Norwex team, Linda Pearce describes their job perfectly…

“Similar to our other “enzyme-based” or microbial products, our Mattress Cleaner does not “kill” anything (including dust mites). It works by eating up all of the organic matter that the dust mites would feed on, as well as the accumulated dust mite bodies and faecal matter. No food = no more growth of mites……at least for a while…….until there is more food. The overgrowth of the good bacteria at the expense of the dust mites is called competitive inhibition. We simply add enough “good guys” to be sure they out compete the “bad guys.”

Where can I get it from? What if it doesn’t work?

Some other Norwex customer testimonies…

“I used mattress cleaner when my daughter was waking up every morning with bites on her skin….(it was a second hand mattress given to us) once we used the mattress cleaner she never has woken up with bites again…I started using the mattress cleaner roughly 3-4 months ago.” Odette George, Qld

“My sinus problems showed a marked improvement within one day of using the mattress cleaner. While it hasn’t gone completely, it is much better!” Susan Don, Qld

“Fantastic stuff! Gets rid of the smell of pee (both human and pets) and has cleared up my brother in laws eczema. Brilliant must have product!!!!” Monica Whawell, Qld

“My sister bought it in March 2011 as her daughter Ashleigh suffers badly from Asthma, eczema and other skin conditions. She uses it regularly on her mattress and pillows, the year she started using it was the first year she didn’t end up in hospital with breathing difficulties. Needless to say, Sandie has become a complete Norwex fan.” Stacey Allen, Qld

“I suffer from hay fever and my partner from hay fever and asthma. When I heard about the mattress cleaner I was skeptical (like with all the products) but gave it a try… Bam… No more sneezes and runny noses in the early morning from both of us! Mother in law uses and say it has reduced hubbies snoring and no more hay fever!” Carla Stevens, Qld

“My kids both suffer from asthma, with my daughter also suffering from eczema and hay fever as well. I can always tell when it’s time to do their bedding again and pretty well spot on 3 months they will start with the coughing sneezing, runny eyes and nose and everything else that goes along with them. Simply spray all their bedding, doonas, pillows etc. and it clears it up straight away! Would NOT be without the mattress cleaner, the best thing I ever bought from Norwex and that’s been a lot of products! You will not regret buying!” Sandra Ludcke, Qld
