I have done much research on all of the chemicals in our food, beauty products and cleaning products and it absolutely made me sick reading about all of the harsh and dangerous chemicals that we come into contact with on a daily basis. No wonder so many people have asthma problems and skin problems and even cancer from these chemicals. I really believe the rise in cancer in the last 20 or so years coincides with the use of more toxins in our products and all of the preservatives and additives in our foods. Well for me, I say no more!!
I have made the decision that even though it will cost more that I am going to only buy products that are natural and organic whenever I can. From dish detergent to body wash and even the cleaners I use in my home, I am going natural. The only problem with making this choice is that a lot of the time these products are hard to find. Well not anymore.
My daughter, Ashley, has started selling Norwex products and I was pleased to find that they offer a lot more products than I even thought of. One of my favorite items are the microfiber cleaning cloths that they offer in many choices from dish cloths to cleaning cloths and even towels. They absolutely fascinate me! You simply add a water to the cleaning cloths and use their cleaning product of your choice and when you’re done you hang up the towel to dry and somehow, by magic I like to think, in a couple of hours the towels are bacteria free. You can see the videos on their website that shows the tests they do on the towels to show you! These cloths can be washed in the washing machine with just water, no detergent and then hung to dry. You DO NOT put them in the dryer either as regular detergent and the heat from the dryer can damage them. You reuse them over and over!
This is from their website:
