OK I am in LOVE with the Norwex Lysere Care Collection… honestly I am SO fussy when it comes to what I use on my hair. It needs to have no nasties (deal breaker) but also lots of hydrating goodness… well… hello curls. The deep conditioner and mask is seriously crazy good. “No cap” my teenager would say… haha (ie. I’m not joking!). The protecting spray… LOOOVE.
Our hair care line is salon quality, vegan, plant based and without all the nasty chemicals! It was designed by a multiple award winning salon hair product designer and designed for all hair types… regular, curly, straight, bleached, damaged, dry and colour treated hair.
You NEED this product in your life… think silky, nourished hair, that is so, so soft. Curly hair peeps RAVE about it for their curls too, for me it defrizzes and creates curls- especially after the conditioning mask treatment. I LOVE the conditioning treatment so much (especially coupled with the Norwex Hair Wrap) and the hair protecting spray is beautiful.
This is what some people have shared about it…
“It’s been years since I finally found a shampoo & conditioner that doesn’t make my hair feel heavy and greasy.” Annalise
“I freaking love it! My hairdresser can’t believe the quality of my hair since using it!” Betty (bleached hair)
“I especially love the deep conditioner and mask- I adore how soft and hydrated it feels afterwards, and my frizzy hair becomes curly!” Rachelle
LYSERE DEEP CONDITIONER AND MASK: Ultra-hydrating for brittle, dry or damaged hair. Use once or twice weekly for a deep treatment, leaving on for 5-10 minutes, or if especially dry, daily as a conditioner
LYSERE HAIR PROTECTING SPRAY:This spray provides lightweight protection against pollution, heat damage and UV rays for stronger, shinier, hydrated hair.
…These four products are available separately, or in a collection.
OH MY.. THE HAIR WRAP….. WHO LOVES IT? It comes on holidays with me! It is seriously is amazing (and so good for any deep conditioning treatment). Made from our antibacterial microfibre. It absorbs 70% of the moisture from your hair in 10 minutes.
This means a few things:
1. You don’t go to bed with your hair wet (or as wet) which reduces the dust mites in your pillow that thrive in wet and warm conditions
2. You have less time with the blow-dryer on your hair which in turn improves the condition of your hair over time.
3. It can reduce hair breakages.
I love this customer’s testimony about the Hair Wrap:
“I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the products. I have very thick, long hair which is always very difficult to dry, and I also have a chronic condition which makes blow-drying my hair very tiresome. The Norwex head towel is very absorbent which means I spend less time blow-drying my hair afterwards. I’m really happy with the quality of both the head towel and the body cloth which I purchased from you, I’m glad I bought them!” Rani
Why? Because you get products for solutions covering your bathroom, windows, walls, dusting, polishing, the kitchen & more. No more jiff, no more gumption, paper towel, chux, orange spray, sugar soap, spray and wipe…
NO MORE chemicals.
Switch your sprays and cleaning products to these cloths & cleaning paste and you have a natural, time and money saving solution for your everyday cleaning.
Buying these amazing products together means you get them 30% off, the dream starter kit works out to be $147.50 (RRP $211, save $63.50). They come with a 60 day money back satisfaction guarantee AND a TWO year warranty. Our basic Dream starter kit works out at $1.42 a week over that two years, I know I used to spend WAAAY more on that per
week if I added up all the products I’d buy to clean my house. Look after these cloths of course and they should last longer much longer than that. I still have the bulk of my cloths for over 5 years (since I started using Norwex!)
My goal with this article is to outline simply WHAT you get for the kit and WHY it is a fabulous and great value kit. If you would like a run down on what Norwex is about, please click here.)
So what’s in this dream kit?
One kitchen cloth…
(you can also purchase seperately)
Get rid of those stinky chux, sponges, spray and wipe and paper towel & enter these amazing kitchen cloths. These fast drying and absorbent cloths are made from microfibre and since they have our “baclock” silver technology within the cloth which is added during manufacturing, it 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! If you get STREAKY benchtops they are also a MUST HAVE!
Just a few comments about the cloths that customers have written in the past few months,
“Rachelle you gave me one of these. I love the way it doesn’t leave any streaks on my benchtops”, Sue
“Love these, they clean everything in the kitchen, and they don’t get smelly… I wash them because I think I should now, not because they smell”, Sharon
“This has to be my favourite Norwex cloth! I got two in my Dream Starter Kit, but used them so frequently, I bought myself another two! Two on the go, two in the wash. Wipe your bench, your baby, your dishes, your hands and sticky faces. Clean up your food, crumbs and spills quickly and efficiently. And best of all, it rinses out really, really easily!” One of my past Norwex hosts
One Kitchen towel
The same as our kitchen cloths, but larger. Some great features:
Contains Norwex’s exclusive BacLock®* agent
The AMAZING Duo… the enviro cloth & window/polish cloth
The enviro is our “everything” cloth. This tightly woven microfibre cloth has 2.9 million metres of microfibre in it. So as you clean surfaces the tiny hooks on each fibre pull up any residue and dirt off the surface. This can be used dry or damp. And clean surfaces such as windows, mirrors, shower screens, walls, carpet stains, couches, car interiors, cupboards and more. You get one of these enviro cloths in this kit (or TWO in the Dream starter kit plus).
Then add its “bestie” the window cloth and you have a serious combination. Have a read of a post about “my wall heroes” here…Clean your windows and mirrors just with water QUICKLY and STREAK free. I will often at a party draw with butter on the window a bit like this guy to the right… then use a damp folded enviro & a dry polish/Window cloth and clean off the “butter art” & the whole window both sides with the same cloth!
Here’s a cute little man from a big party I did a few years ago. I just had to take a picture of him, as he was so cute! (Please NOTE you don’t need butter to clean! Unlike a very special customer who thought you did!)
This combo comes with a warning though! Put stickers on the window as glass does look invisible! Read about a true (a slighly humourous story) here about that! Glass REALLY does look invisible.
Add the scrub cloth and you have your BATHROOM attack system–
The scrub cloth is amazing. I have a professional cleaner (now consultant) buy over 30 of these cloths. They are seriously awesome.
How is it that I have customers LIGHT UP LIKE THEY HAVE HAD A BABY- when they talk about this cloth? Really they do! It feels abrasive but won’t scratch your glass. You can also add cleaning paste (also available in the Dream Starter Kit), the blue diamond or descaler to budge really built up soap scum. You can also use it in the kitchen (for example on your teflon products or with the oven & grill cleaner). This is the ideal cloth for hard to clean surfaces. Also, great for cleaning showers, including shower floors and glass and bathtubs, and removing sticky residue, stubborn stains or rust. Great for removing soap residue and cleaning around taps.
“The Grease Cloth” Aka the all purpose kitchen cloth
This is my dad’s favourite cloth, it is a MUST HAVE. He was so funny, when I gave him the “grease” cloth to clean his stainless steel, pizza oven, BBQ, range hood- I’m not sure how many phone calls I have received from him to send them to different friends and family. This photo was just a quick one when I cleaned the top of the kitchen cupboard. It’s AMAZING how you can feel the cloth “grab” at the grease.
I recall one of my hosts and regular customers share about this cloth and her range hood. She was (probably still is!) a lady who takes MUCH care in the look of her home (much more than me!!) and she said once she got her dream starter kit home- she took this grease cloth out for her nemesis her RANGE HOOD- she had bought wipes, sprays, cleaners, stainless steel cloths- NOTHING had budged the “film” of grease. UNTIL THIS CLOTH!!!!!! Just with water- it was gone in only a few minutes. I still remember her excitement!!
It really does work- it certainly is a cloth with the “WOW” factor!!!!!
Let’s Add the Cleaning Paste…
And you have a formidable force. The cleaning paste. I USED to love gumption- anyone else love their gumption? I didn’t love the yellow revealed paint whilst getting a mark off the wall though…
I also USED to love those little magic erasers- anyone love those? Note I am using the past tense- I no longer use these little (expensive) chemical bombs- I usually just use a DAMP enviro cloth or scrub cloth (if it’s in the bathroom) and MAGIC- GONE…
The cleaning paste is an environmentally friendly cleaning and polishing agent that works with a damp Scrub Cloth, Envirocloth or
Kitchen Cloth to clean, polish and protect plastic, enamel, ceramics, chrome, steel, aluminium and porcelain surfaces in one application. Works great to remove rust, stains and scuff marks, and on bathroom sinks and tiles too!
And last, but not least- the AMAZING Dust mitt.
The dust mitt is like a MAGNET!! I have used mitts and cloths in the past that just swoosh everything around! Not this one. At my very first Norwex party- the consultant cleaned my fans which were directly above US- and we were all slightly concerned we would end up as dust bunnies (as I hadn’t cleaned those fans in 6 months!) however we all had dropped jaws by the end of that demonstration!
The structure of the ultra fine fibres and the natural static charge inherent to synthetic products enables the Dusting Mitt to attract and trap dust and dirt more efficiently than cotton. You can use anywhere that requires dusting! For example: blinds, wooden Venetians, fans, banisters, vehicle dashboards, tops of cupboards, lamps, screens etc.
SO YOU GET ALL OF THIS IN THE DREAM STARTER KIT FOR ONLY $147.50. AS IT IS VALUED AT $211, IT’S AS IF YOU GET THE ENVIRO & CLEANING PASTE FOR FREE!!

My aim in this article is to briefly address how Norwex is different to other microfibres around. It is an amazing, versatile, affordable product and I do warn people that using Norwex cloths can be quite addictive. EVEN for those people who DON’T like to clean (like me!). Are you thinking “how on earth is that possible?” well let me explain… it just makes cleaning tasks which are typically a pain (like cleaning the oven, your floors, the shower, marks off walls etc.) so quick, so effective and so EASY. There are so many microfibres on the market- Norwex, Enjo, e-cloth, microfibres you can buy at the supermarket, online @ at markets. The question about how Norwex is different to other microfibres comes up all the time. You can buy 10 microfibre cloths from Big W for $10 why would you buy a Norwex enviro cloth (multi purpose cloth) for example for $29? (this was one of my first questions!)
How is Norwex different?
Norwex microfibres are made with a blend of polyester & polyamide. Polyamide simply helps with durability.
When the Norwex microfibre is at the pulp stage in the factory they add SILVER.
Silver has antibacterial properties, properties humans have been using for decades. Hospitals use silver as their top defence against infection in burns patients. I know before I even knew Norwex existed, I was encouraged to buy (and bought) silver pads for my kindergarten daughter who tripped down a HUGE concrete hill (poor thing I still cringe as I think how that turned out). The Norwex labels, if they have the silver added will have the word ‘Antibac’ or our newer cloths will have ‘Baclock’ on the label.
The silver DOES NOT wash out of our microfibres.
What does the silver do?
The micro silver is an antibacterial agent for self-cleaning purposes. The agent inhibits bacterial odour, mould, and/or mildew growth within the product. IT doesn’t make the surface antibacterial the AMAZING micro fibres will remove everything off the surface for you easily and effectively THEN the silver goes to work. What does this mean? The micro silver in a wet cloth goes to work using its self-purification properties against mould, fungi and bacterial odour within 24 hours. Using JUST water, surfaces are left free from EVERYTHING- cleaned, polished and streak free.
I just think of our kitchen cloths so affordably priced and they replace your sponges, smelly microfibre cloths- because of the QUALITY & SILVER they just don’t smell like other cloths do. If you have bench tops or tables that streak, then you just HAVE to get 2-3 of these babies- THEY ARE AWESOME!!!
Cost & Quality
Norwex is a high quality microfibre and it’s important know for a fibre to be considered “microfibre” it needs to be 1/6 of a human hair or finer. Norwex microfibre is 1/200 of a human hair!! (Enjo fibres are 1/100th & supermarket brands nowhere near this density).
The way microfibre works, is every microfibre has tiny ‘hooks’ on the fibre, the capillary action PULLS the bacteria, dirt, dust, grease and residue up into the cloth. With Norwex Antibacterial Microfibre, you don’t breathe, touch or digest chemical cleaners and their residue. You remove, (not spread) the dirt, dust, grease and 99.9% of bacteria from a surface. Then the silver goes to work and inhibits the bacterial growth.
The quality, two-year warranty on cloths, the 60 day satisfaction guarantee on ALL products and the added silver make for one amazing microfibre. Compared to other Direct Selling cleaning products Norwex is by far a more affordable product. The ability to clean your whole home for around $4 per week over 2 years makes having a Norwex home more appealing to the hip pocket. If you want to convert your home to Norwex have a look at the Healthy Home Packages(mop, cloths & more) or the dream starter kit. (remember here, if you do buy anything through my online store, you will be emailed the instructions directly from me, which I know helps my customers tremendously to use their products and refer to them.
Versatility & One step cleaning…
There are some products on the market that you need to use multiple steps to clean surfaces, with Norwex it’s a one step process.
As each cleaning challenge has different surfaces and different kinds of dirt and grime, Norwex has formulated different microfibres to tackle every area of your home, office, car & personal care.
The window cloth– for windows, mirrors, polishing jewelry and shiny surfaces.
The Body cloths- for cleansing, exfoliating the skin, make up removal with only water
Washing & Care
No bleach or fabric softeners in the wash with all microfibres. However unlike some other microfibres, Norwex can be washed in machines up to temperatures of 95 degrees celsius with other lint free items. Norwex can go in a moderate dryer up to 60 degrees
A small word on the Norwex-Enjo comparison (a question that comes up frequently)
Firstly BOTH products use microfibre and you are able to switch to chemical free cleaning, however they are actually quite different. One thing I will share and it may help the Enjo user wondering what Norwex is and if it is for them… is those awesome customers I have who are Enjo users (and I absolutely love having Enjo users at my party as they KNOW the value and amazing clean microfibre gives) are absolutely LOVING their Norwex. I think of an older lady I met at a party about a year ago. She told me outright she loves her Enjo (which is great) and as she handed me her $250 order she told me that she absolutely loved the range of our products and bought products that complimented what she already had (eg. she was amazed at our scrub cloth, blown away in fact) but what she loved about the Norwex she was purchasing is it complimented what she had and there were many Norwex products that she “just had to have”. She also purchased products to replace the Enjo ones which had worn out.
Please find below our instructions that go out with all of our Norwex products
And i’m NOT the only one.It’s funny how many people get so excited over a mop. Really. But it’s TRUE!! Imagine not needing to lug a bucket of water around. Imagine just using a mop and water. Yes WATER!!
I often joke that Norwex is ‘all about the drama’, you can look official and have a spray bottle… OR… you can be a little more unconventional and throw a cup of water on the floor (had a bad day?!?!), get the kids to use water pistols or use your water bottle. Come on, it’s cleaning and we need to make it fun, right?!?
Some of the features…
The handle is height adjustable, so its ergonomic.
The microfibre pad has strong velcro which attaches to the base- easily removed for washing.
The base has a ‘lock’ function so the head doesn’t swivel making it easy to clean walls, the roof or windows.
The pads have hooks so you can easily hang them up and be organsied!
You can get a dry pad for sweeping and a rubber brush to wipe off the dirt, hair and whatever else it has picked up- perfect!
The wet pads are available in blue (especially good on wooden floors- in fact it is AMAZING on wooden floors!!) & green (the green has a nylon woven in the microfibre so it is FANTASTIC on tiles, lino, slate)
Hear from this happy Norwex customer,
“Honestly this mop blows my mind. I moved into a new house with lino on the floor. I used the blue wet pad first when I mopped and it came up black, pretty gross. I decided to try the green tile pad straight away as I knew my consultant said it was good on lino & i have a science brain and like to experiment even if it’s with cleaning! Well the tile pad after mopping the same area- was BLACK! The floor looked so good and I couldn’t believe how easy it was- without using any chemicals! That probably blew my mind the most!!”
If you are interested in the mop, head onto my online store, and purchase your own, you won’t be disappointed! I will send you complete instructions once your order has been submitted 🙂 The MOP kits are your best bet & if you are just starting out think about the Healthy Home Packages and you get the mop for free! (all your cleaning needs for your home, a WIN on so many levels… save time, your health, no chemicals, money)
ANYONE GOT DOGGY LOVE ON THEIR FLOORS??
This mop will save you SO much time!! Below if my doggy Bunny 🙂
“Love them… Used to use an expensive branded cleanser and a number of makeup wipes! Now I use these cloths and water!” Happy customer, Canberra.
When I first heard these suede make up removal cloths would take off my waterproof mascara with just being wet, i was skeptical but just like the customer testimony above, they really do work! They are also very soft and gentle around your eyes- so no more scrubbing, no more buying make up wipes, no more buying products or if you are terrible with maintenance like me, no more going to bed with your make up on because you couldn’t be bothered to take it off as it was such a hassle!! haha. (Am I the only one who did this? Probably not! lol)
Mums are buying them for themselves and their daughters by the truckload (well it feels like it! They are probably one of my best sellers), women are buying them for themselves and for gifts aswell. They are VERY affordable and make a VERY affordable purchase or unique gift that will SAVE a lot of money too! Seeing as our microfibre cloths carry a TWO year warranty aswell, even more value. Did you know that everything you buy from Norwex also carries a 60 day money back guarantee, pretty awesome.
The microfibre is baclock, meaning when they make the microfibre, they add silver to the pulp, so every microfibre thread made has the silver (which doesn’t wash out) and silver has antibacterial properties. What does that mean? Cloths don’t smell like normal cloths as they self sanitise. 99.9% of the bacterial is inactivated over 24 hours. You rinse them out under some running water (aggitated with some soap) and hang out to dry on the towel rail or hook, ready to use next time. They can be put in the washing machine as well (no fabric softener though!), the benefit of three in a pack- you can have one ready all the time 🙂
The body pack is also sold in a pack of three, these cloths exfoliate and cleanse the skin, there has been much success with helping eczema, acne and other skin conditions. Check out my post about how it can they can help with acne and rosacea for example.
Read the customer testimony below,
“I write this post not as a Norwex consultant, but as a mum, wife and 35 year old woman who has suffered from cystic acne for 23 years. Over this time I have tried countless home remedies, skin treatments, prescription medicines – including the very dangerous drug roaccutane and spent tens of thousands of dollars on skincare products in the hope that one day I might just ‘be normal’. There has not been one single day where I have not had a pimple on my face, including the most magical day of my life – my wedding day. I have endured many unkind words by strangers commenting on my skin and have always looked at myself in the mirror and asked ‘why me..’. There may be some of you reading this who have quickly labelled me as vain, but there may also be someone reading this who is nodding to themselves and knows exactly what I am trying to say. To some they are just pimples, but to myself and others who suffer from cystic acne it is a constant emotional battle to remain confident within yourself and not allow what others see to determine who you really are… On May 27th 2013 I thought I would give the Norwex body cloths a try, after all, seriously, what’s a $10 cloth going to do that a $180 bottle of skin cleanser hasn’t already done – unsuccessfully. After the first use my skin felt nice and smooth, well as smooth as it could be, but I wasn’t convinced. After all I had been in this same situation over a hundred times or more. I persisted, and am I glad I did! With tears of happiness running down my cheek I am happy to report for the first time in 23 years my skin is clear, and has been for close to 2 months. I am receiving compliments from people on how great my skin looks and for the first time in a very long time I feel beautiful, both inside and out. I chose to write this not as a sales pitch, but in the hope that someone may read this who is in the very same situation or knows of someone who is, and give them the opportunity to try something that could very well change their life completely. Thankyou Norwex for producing such a fantastic product, there are no words to explain how you have changed my life to the extent you have.” Carmen Dridan, Victoria
