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!!

Complementary Products

Norwex Dish Mat

The Norwex Dish Mat is ultra absorbant, compact & its design reallyNorwex Dishmat allows things to dry without condensation. Put your fruit and veggies on it to dry, the water wicks away and it dries SUPER FAST!!

You can also pile dishes high as they dry, and eliminate drenched towels with the super absorbent Dish Mat. The mesh side allows air to flow through while the microfibre soaks up excess moisture. The neutral latte colour will blend with almost any kitchen décor. (also matches the ‘latte’ kitchen cloths & towels).

Veggie & Fruit Scrub Cloth

fruit and veggie scrub clothThe AMAZING Veggie & Fruit Scrub cloth helps to scrub off nasty chemicals and dirt. It is a two sided, scrub and dry Microfibre cloth for cleaning of fruit and vegetables. It is also

fabulous at getting the sticky residues off from the stickers on things like apples. It is 32 cm x 32 cm and of course the two year warranty, like all our cloths.

Why I do what I do…

I HAVE to share this video- it’s 4 minutes of total inspiration on whatever journey you are on. Working out your WHY and purpose makes such a difference to LIFE.

This is the LINK– feel free to check it out!!

I’ve been reflecting on this and my Norwex journey. Yes the money is lovely, the people are AMAZING, the company is generous, the products make life so much easier, it saves money and it is SO MUCH FUN.

However a big part of my WHY comes from helping educate people to create safe havens in their homes- to empower people to make choices that will actually save money, time AND their QUALITY OF LIFE (allergies, health, skin issues, chemical free living & more). I LOVE that. I really do. I am not writing this for what I am about to say next, I am writing this because I have been pondering. I feel like I would do you a disservice as a friend if I didn’t let you know it is actually free to join Norwex at the moment. I am excited by this as people can buy wholesale and share the purpose and mission of Norwex with friends, family and others they know.

Just head to the recruting tab to read more or go to my website to sign up straight away. Feel free to send me an email too, I’d be more than happy to answer any questions or help. As you want the products in your home when you do sign up you can get 1 of our additions packs at 40% off- they are some of our most popular products and you will be on the way to creating a safe haven (AND saving yourself at least 50/75% time cleaning- no joke that is TRUE!! Norwex for the WIN! lol)

Grease and Mess sorted with these two Norwex Ninjas!

An answer for Greasy venetian Blinds
An answer for Greasy venetian Blinds

Perhaps we can rename two of my favourite kitchen cloths- the Ninja cloths?! They are seriously above ANYTHING I have ever used to clean with. Enter the All Purpose Kitchen Cloth ie. the “Grease Cloth” (aka the Greasy Ninja) & the Kitchen cloth (aka the messy Ninja)?! Does that work? LOL. I think so. We recently moved, if you have been following my blog you may have been following some of my posts surrounding the cleaning side of things! (There are more still coming I have just been SOOO busy, they are coming though!)

An Easy Answer for Anything Greasy…

The house we moved into had the most DISGUSTING wooden venetian blinds. Does any one have Venetians in the kitchen? If you do then you NEEED the Greasy Ninja I am talking about today. I couldn’t clean them until I could show you how well it worked. So my 10 year old and I did a little video yesterday, it is not perfect at all and I just have to LAUGH at myself but you will get to see how it cleans just ignore me! lol. There is a video at the end for you to have a look at if you’d like to see how the All purpose Kitchen cloth (aka The minion ninjaGreasy Ninja!) works. You can purchase it on its own or it can also be purchased as part of the Dream Starter Kit (one of the best packs I can recommend to start off with Norwex as you get all the basic cloths & cleaning paste at 30% off). I have written all about Dream Starter pack in a blog entry here it’s titled “Where do I start?”

Other uses for the Greasy Ninja… think: BBQ,  range hoods, splash backs, stove tops, ovens, pans, Venetians etc.

The Kitchen Cloth: A cloth you take on holidays with you…

I think I just MAY be a “kitchen cloth snob” most people who love Norwex will do just what I admit to doing… packing 1 or 2 kitchen cloths when you go on holidays!! WHY? Because once you use this cloth it’s hard to go back to stinky, streaky, disposable Chux cloths or sponges. I did forget a while back at a family holiday on the Sunshine coast & the kitchen had lovely marble benches and man THEY ARE HARD TO CLEAN!! They streak so easily. So you can be assured that when you use this cloth  it grabs up the crumbs, the microfibres clean the surface JUST WITH WATER and leaves it streak free. Yes it is true. Again, purchase on its own or get two as part of the Dream Starter Kit.

They are fast drying and absorbent and made from microfibre and since they are antibacterial (during manufacturing they add silver to the microfibre, the silver inhibits bacterial odour, mould and mildew growth within the cloth) so they just don’t smell like other dish cloths.

Where do you use them? It is fantastic for wiping kitchen tables and benches, stovetops, refrigerator shelves, cleaning up kitchen spills and washing up (just use it on the blunt side of sharp knives). Use them on stainless steel, enamel, ceramic, glass, chrome, granite, marble, slate, quartz, tile, wood, plastic, stone and china. Wring out and hang cloth after use. If you have a thermomix these are a MUST have!

Below is a very rough video my daughter & I made yesterday on my phone, it is not perfect at all and I just have to LAUGH at myself but you will get to see how it cleans just ignore me! lol
